Slugabed Wake Up feat. Szjerdene
File Under: Things I’m excited about
Guessing Slugabed’s forthcoming 7” (with da instrumental B side) is coming out on Ninja Tune soon.
Mountains Come Out of the Sky (Lapalux Saturation Remix)
Slugabed Mountains Come Out of the Sky (Lapalux Saturation Remix)
This post should just be called “Dre’s Faves.” Dazed Digital, Lapalux and Slugabed are three names I mention in public settings as often as possible. Combining the three is bound to result in an almost immediate post by me. So here we go.
The magnetic loveliness of the original track is covered in a glitchy cloud of glittering smoke rework that’s just brilliant. I had to include Slugabed’s words on the track as it’s just so adorable:
“Lapalux did something lovely with a track of mine. you can have it for free because you deserve it. it will be released alongside the original track and remixes from kutmah, arp101 and two people.”
I think that’s english for ‘thanks for your support, and stay tuned as there’s more to come, plus Kutmah is up in the mix.”

Slugabed Sex (Video)
As Slugabed puts it, his latest 12” is the “Soundtrack to your nights of digital pleasure-seeking.” Like a new age update of the Knight Rider theme, or a really really dope Lexus commercial, (I haven’t decided yet) Slugabed brings a funk heavy feel to sexed up computer games to his latest single ‘Sex’. The video for this track is hilarious and combines my love of sex beats and infomercials, so of course I’m all about it. It’s great when artists don’t take themselves too seriously and can fuck around like this too.
The track ‘Sex’ itself is this sweet mix of Chromeo Fancy Footwork vibes, a shitload of 12 year, old 90s era nerds playing Nintendo and PC computer games, plus some serious synth and effects, all piled on top of each other and vaporized. Smooth. Be sure to snag a copy of this release while you can, which includes remixes of the single ‘Sex’ by Daedelus and Groundislava.
Peter Puzzle Mixtape for Streets Of Beige
Weird a**, ambient shoegaze for your Sunday chillout sesh courtesy of the bass-centric, beat master Peter Puzzle and the UK label, Streets Of Beige. Big ups to my personal faves: a.d.l.r., Anenon, (LA represent) Shlomo, and of course Peter Puzzle.
These experimental, part ambient, bass-focused electronic sounds are super easy to chill out with says the Salad Fork, and what the Salad Fork says, the Salad Fork does. Ya herd…
