Mixin’ It Up: Team Skidoo
We figured it was time for a Mixin’ It Up with someone from Sweden. Team Skidoo is a collective that have been tearing up clubs in Stockholm and the rest of Sweden for some time now. Let’s leave the rest of the explaining to the team itself:
“Stockholm based trio Team Skidoo have the last couple of years been trying to share their passion for music with the punters with own material, remixes for Peter, BjÃ¶rn & John, Maskinen, Swiss Boarding School and The Bell amongst others and with a wide variety of dancefloor-friendly tracks they’ve succesfully been projecting energy on the all-loving party audience all across and sometimes outside of Sweden. They will try to continue to do so and hope that you will join in on the party, everybody’s invited!
Laszlo Bencker – Romance For Tomorrow
No explanation needed! Or maybe, a lot of explanation but we can’t really give it to you since we don’t know too much about Laszlo other than this is great 80s library music with a twist.
From their fantastic ep released in 2007, we really had trouble choosing among the tracks but this has to be the pick of the litter.
Linzatti – Quasar
Fantastic dancefloor fodder from techno-swedes, great stuff!
Team Skidoo – Phonygatian space lover mashup
Homemade blend of the sublime “I Cry” by Egyptian Lover and very catchy “Space Cruise” by Phonique.
Jochen Pash – Tonight/JM Silk – Music Is The Key
Even more of our own mashups, this time house music legend JM Silk fused with an energetic track by german Jochen Pash.
Buraka Som Sistema – Yah!
Kuduro that has gotten quite a lot of attention in 2007.
2 In A Room – Wiggle It
TOTAL ANTHEM! And what a fantastic video!
Maynx – 88 3 o piano
Old school stuff that will get your body moving.
Daso – Meine
Another stand out track from one of 2007s best eps.
Herve – Cheap Thrills
Ok, so everybody have heard “Thriller” now a couple of times but we couldn’t resist having this on the mix, so much energy and nicely cut. Herve has also done some very good work under his alias Count Of Monte Cristal.
Lily Allen – Oh My God (Chris Lake mix)
Scottie B – N****z Fighting
Another old school monster track that still sounds so fresh to us.
Maskinen – Alla Som Inte Dansar (Team Skidoo/TekBox remix)
We got the honors to do a remix on this already raving track and here it is!
Dusty Kid – The Cat
If you’ve heard us play somewhere we probably played this and we might probably do it again, the track itself is a club happening.”
