Mixin’ It Up: LOL Boys

Jun 26 2009


LOL Boys is one frenchie, Jerome P aka Burntpiano and one mexican, Markus G aka Sirhan making tunes with influences ranging from world music to house to disco to straight up pop. They “placed” in the Passion Pit remix contest and the AC Slater remix contest and are planing to do an ep on acid jack’s “idiot house records”. But now they are here to do a Mixin’ It Up on Discobelle!

“For our mix we wanted to do something fast paced and dynamic enough to listen to multiple times and also showcase our influences. we think we cranked out a perfect mix to party to or even for working out. you’ll notice that even though we have a tracklist below that a lot of the mix is our own edits and our own branding. since there is two of us we can do a lot of work while djing like one of us can be blending on serato and the other can be running loops and effects in ableton and mixing stuff in on cdjs. this mix is also a good idea of how we’d play a sweaty summer time house party. hope you enjoy it as much we enjoyed making it.

LOL Boys – Mixin’ It Up for Discobelle (zshare)

Cassius – Feelin’ for you (LOL Boys Club mix) (Zippyshare)

Ursula 1000 – Star Machine (LOL Boys lunch @ hot dougs remix) (zShare)

Tracklist for the mix:

Fagget Fairys – Roll the Dice (LOL Boys Remix) -cdr
starting our mix of with one of our newest remixes. it’s a good example of our dynamic blend of club, techno and pop influences.

Marc Houle – Bay of Figs (minus42lp)
marc houle is one of the best techno producers ever and bay of figs is a classic track that will convince techno/minimal haters to reconsider.

Nifty – Nifty (atlantic jaxx recordings)
basement jaxx are constantly and consistently groundbreaking and ahead of their time.

M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade – Body Language (get physical)
hands down one of the catchiest synth riffs ever.

Ursula 1000 – Zombies – Hijack Remix (esl)
hijack makes a banging house track with repetitive chanting lets you know it’s time to chug those drinks and get on the floor.

Speedy J – Pullover (music man)
actually a tune released in the 90s from a dutch producer that is so simple and effective. it also exists as either a dance mania track or stripped down hardcore track.

Kingdom – You (fool’s gold/acephale)
look out for this dude. first introduced to me through nightslug’s Bok Bok and Johnny Moog’s dj prince william. brooklyn boy kingdom is making 2009 freestyle. so catchy frat bros are singing along one minute in to the track.

Emynd – it’s hot down here (crossfaded bacon)
eymnd is a genius clubbing up NOLA bounce’s classic trigger man sample.

L-Vis 1990 – Compass – (cdr)
every tune this dude makes lately ends up in our must play crate. this is the point in the mix where we start getting a little more into the percussive world music tracks.

Douster – Ladinian – (cdr)
futuristic cumbia sampling busy signal. tracks like this are really starting to influence our sets.

DJ Gant-Man – Juke Dat Girl -Greenmoney Remix (fools gold)
gant-man is a chicago juke legend. it’s nice to be able to drop greenmoney’s remix because it has that element of uk funky in it.

Zombie Disco Squad – The Cursed (made to play)
these dudes are amazing. making simple percussive house with tribal-esque influence. a banger.

LOL Boys – Oh Boy -cdr
this is us getting down. making some world music inspired percussive house but with that dirty ghetto house-ish vocal sample.

Auto Repeat – You Can’t Stop (crammed music)
DJ Elin is often overlooked. Everyone should go buy The Unbearable Lightness Of Autorepeating.

Play Paul – Spaced Out – Xtended Mix (crydamoure)
Crydamoure is a legendary label. Brother of Guy Man from Daft Punk to boot.

Miike Snow – Animal- (downtown music)
We all know this by now.

Thomas Bangalter РSpinal Beats (Roul̩)
We should all know this by now.

Duck Sauce – aNYway (fool’s gold)
A-Trak + AVH = Epic. Love how they flipped this sample.

Sparks – Beat the Clock – Giorgio Moroder Mix (virgin)
moroder produced this than remixed it. moroder era sparks is the best ever.

Yellow Magic Orchestra – Computer Games 12″ Mix (alpha records)
Look up youtubes to watch them play live. Top 5 songs of all time.

Big Dope P – Back to Da Old Future (moveltraxx)
This dude is from Paris but might as well be from Chicago.

Diskokaine – Bikini (DJ Funk Remix)
DJ Funk still killin it.

Dances With White Girls – Everyone’s Got to Make a Living (throne of blood)
Frog is a great man.

LOL Boys – Neon Flannel (cdr)

Afrojack & Diplo – How I Like It – Beataucue Remix (cdr)
Don’t know the full story on this. Think it is just Afrojack’s version of Pon Di Floor remixed by Beataucue. COOL.

Plastique De Reve – Resist – DJ Rampage Remix (supersoul records)
Heard the OG of this in the summer of ’08. Just got the record and was so pumped on a Rampage remix.
