Electroclash revisited

So this post features a couple of tracks that I used to play years back when DJing. It depended on my mood, really, as I liked to bounce around between genres.

The first cut is by the pretty much unknown group Adult. I actually saw these guys live before they really became "in" with the whole electro crowd. Not bad, if I remember right. This song got them quite a bit of play, and resulted in a good Carl Craig remix of this track. I'll even post that remix, also, as a little gift. So here's Adult.'s "Hand To Phone".

Next up is more Felix Da Housecat. This time under his guise of Aphrohead. This song was an absolute bitch to get my hands on, but I'm glad I did. The Clashbackk label produced a lot of unbelievable stuff, and this one is no different. Here's "Blindmanwilly", a track that revolves around none other than a harmonica loop, which is pretty fitting if you think about it. One of Felix's lesser known tracks, but probably one of his best, in my opinion.

And yes. Go buy stuff. It makes me smile. As does shiny things.
