Went out to my local record store today and picked this up - decided I needed another compilation of songs so that I could get into a bunch of new artists.
If you’re a fan of Daft Punk or Breakbot or other french-touch sounding music, then I can recommend this to you. Bang Gang is an Australian record label comprised of a bunch of artists who compose indie dance music, and a lot of it sounds super funky and Daft Punk-inspired.
I managed to get this for AU$15, but you might be able to find it some places for cheaper. It was released in 2009 so it’s not likely to be as expensive as most new releases.
Inside, you’ll get two discs. The first one has 17 tunes from various Bang Gang artists, while the second is a mixtape by DJs Doom & Hoodrat, featuring 26 more tunes and remixes.
I’d already heard of a bunch of the artists from this release - possible the most famous included on here are the Bag Raiders. But there’s a bunch of other artists too with decent sounds, such as Shazam, Cassian, ZZZ, Gloves and many more.
Here’s a couple of the cooler tunes you can expect to find on this release:
Shazam - Hello Cat
Shazam - Pool Party 2009
Whitenoise - Harlequin wait nope nobody’s uploaded this anywhere sorry :/
Lost Valentinos - White Noise wait nope there’s only a live version of this on youtube :\
Cassian - Final Round okay good this one is up, I really like this one
Damn Arms - Destination 1 this one is great also
Now go, listen to this stuff and maybe, hopefully, you’ll find something new that you like. :)
