Yes indeed, I’ve finally moved away from wp.com to danlesac.co.uk, it’s taken me ages to get round to but I’m glad I did, the new site is looking sweet!!!
Everything that was here is there, mixtapes, remixes, bumps, live dates will all appear, nothing will change in the level of erratic postings and garbled messages. Now it’s all just found a prettier home. Come visit!

Kinda clear what this post is about from the title isn’t it?! Anyway here is exactly what it says on the tin!
You can grab the remixes and original on iTunes, Beatport, and 7″ Vinyl.

July 9th is a pretty damn good day for me, it’s the day my record comes out, and if you haven’t heard me rant about already, in short, it’s dope! Featuring collaborations between Myself, Merz, Emmy the Great, B Dolan, Pete Hefferan, Sarah Williams White, Joshua Idehen, and Fraser Rowan.
You can pre-order the CD or Vinyl from Sunday Best, and the digital on iTunes so far, more soon!

I find myself listening to a lot of solo females with guitars lately, Mrs Le Sac seems to be able to sniff them out, it’s one of her powers. She also stumbled upon Ghostpoet, Esben & the Witch & Gallops before I’d seen a single word typed about them, that’s not a power though, I’m just showing off on her behalf. In the past few month’s the acoustic lady fodder has been mainly focused around these three ladies who I’m thinking you’ve already heard…
Cold Specks -
Mirel Wagner -
Lianne Le Havas & Willy Mason -
Cold Specks seems to take top spot for me, I think that’s about hearing pain, not just sadness, in a voice. What that says about me I do not know.
Much has been written about how Karin Park sounds like Bjork, but the Bjork she sounds like doesn’t really exist any more so that’s fine isn’t it? Anyway, no matter who she sounds like, you can’t fault Christoffer Berg’s (The Knife) production. It’s dubstep without the wubs, dubstep without the dancefloor.
