Institubes (2003-2011)

The Institubes label is dead (and for real this time). News that saddens me. It’s the label that introduced me to the so called “blog house”, back in 2006. Artists like Surkin, Bobmo and Para One had a platform to release their refreshing sounds. The first time I heard “Ghetto Obsession” and “Radio Fireworks” by Surkin, it felt like there was a whole unknown world of music just waiting there to be discovered. Maybe now these two tunes don’t sound that special anymore, but for me it was something really crazy, unheard of back then.

Surkin – Ghetto Obsession 2006 [2006]

Surkin – Radio Fireworks [2006]

It was the time of the upcoming remix culture. I used to check Palms Out Sounds’ Remix Sundays, which lead me to artists like Para One, who brought a totally new style. Check out these tunes and the video for “Dudun-Dun”, all from around 2006.

Para One – Turtle Trouble [2006]

Para One – Midnight Swim (Riton Rerub) [2007]

Para One – Dudun-Dun (MSTRKRFT Remix) [2006]

Later on some more crazy releases followed. Surkin’s full album “Action Replay” and EPs by Curses!, Bobmo and Das Glow, just to name a few.

Surkin – J-Hood [2007]

Curses! – This Is The Way (Drop the Lime Remix) [2007]

Bobmo – Rock The [2008]

Das Glow – Lite Brite [2008]

Now the legend continues with their sister label Sound Pellegrino. They are still alive and kicking, like Rednik said in this post. For the official press statement by Institubes, go to their website.


Shadow Dancer – Cowbois !

Shadow Dancer, 2 Guys from Manchester in the UK. Who produce under the Boys Noize Records label have released their new EP yesterday ! (goddamnit, a day late !) Well to make it up, we give u 320kbps versions from 2 tracks from the EP. By the way, the Dilemn remix is actually the track you heard on their myspace player, not the original !


1. Cowbois (Original Mix)
2. Cowbois (Das Glow Remix)
3. Cowbois (Strip Steve Remix)
4. Cowbois (Dilemn Remix)

If you would like to check out the other 2 remixes, I suggest you should check the myspace from Strip Steve and Das Glow, it’s well worth it!
