(thee) Mike B is based out of Los Angeles and he is one of those dj’s dj whereas pretty much an all star cast of dj’s/producers gives him well deserved praise, he also happens to be one of Discobelle’s oldest friends.

Now, he has teamed up with Eevo to breathe new life into the classic The Avalanches track “Frontier Psychiatrist” which we can premiere on Discobelle, their chopped up take features a frantic, housed up beat and lingering horn samples throughout this absolute banger which has already been praised by the likes of Nick Catchdubs, Curses, Astronomar, Tony Quattro, Classixx, Ardalan, Oliver Dollar and Switch etc.

The Avalanches reworks pioneering Australian 80’s rock band Hunters & Collectors first hit “Talking to a Stranger”.

A Hunters & Collectors compilation album will be released on September 27th by Liberation Music and features some 30 tracks, 15 original songs from the band’s back catalogue and 15 cover versions from the likes of Neil Finn and Eddie Vedder, Alpine, Cloud Control and many more.

We haven’t heard anything from Australian outfit The Avalanches in years, but out of nowhere this mix was mentioned on their Twitter the other day and our hopes are lifted.

It’s entitled “Sleepy Bedtime Mix for Young Ones” and is filled with vinyl crackling softly, sampled dialogue from movies and mysterious versions of classic tracks. A perfect weekend mix, now we’re just waiting for the followup to that 2000 masterpiece “Since I Left You”. (Via The Fader + Pinchy & Friends)
