Frogg EP: “Bitch” Remixes + MP3

Frogg is one third homegrown UK talent and London vocalist Mills, who brings her eclectic music foundation, which lies squarely between guitar songwriting and drum ‘n bass. Fusing rap with a raw, English-witted tongue and vocals that harness an individual RnB flava, Mills crosses the British Isles to the open and free music lights of Berlin.

The complementing two thirds of the group are homegrown Berlin talents, who draw on dubby electronic grooves and strong beats, without forgetting the importance of melody. Mo Delgado (Seeed), the production hub of Frogg, brings his earthy and playfully diverse approach, creating a sound that is simply fresh. Luke 4000 (Seeed) is the supporting power, bringing things together and enforcing the onstage funk.

The Berlin-based band released their debut album Blink Blink worldwide in September 2009 under BMG Rights Management. Blink Blink demonstrates Frogg’s open perspective on music genres. The band’s energetic live shows have so far enjoyed live highlights such as support slots for De La Soul & Miss Platnum.

Strut Records Compilation: Walter Gibbons, Mixed With Love

Strut Records has released Walter GibbonsJungle Music (Essential & Unreleased Remixes 1976-1986), the first multi-label compilation of edits by Walter Gibbons, one of the most important and unheralded DJ / remixers in New York dance music history.

Listen to Sia’s “Clap Your Hands” Remixed by Doorly + MP3

Have a listen to this remixed version of Sia’s hit single, “Clap Your Hands” by UK producer and DJ, Doorly. While the spirit of Sia’s original remains, the pulsating beat and off kilter rhythm throw a new  spin on the song, and just wait until you get to the eerily chopped-up vocals in the chorus.
