The 1998 version of me is pumped

I just found out that Stan Lee is coming to the Pittsburgh Comic-Con. I bought an extremely overpriced ticket to get his autograph. Which means I’m gonna meet Stan Lee.

I’m gonna meet Stan Lee!

Okay, variations of that statement are going to be a large part of what you read here for the next two weeks or so, deal with it.

The Black Ghosts
Repetition Kills You (Extended Mix)
Repetition Kills You (Phones – Chicago Boys Extradition Mix)
Repetition Kills You (Diplo Mix)

The Black Ghosts album is good, but this track is a fucking masterpiece. It’s for sure going on my list of best tracks of the decade. It has everything a great dance track needs, its catchy as hell and features some amazing beats. The extended version is more of the same (the same being awesome) and the remixes are damn good too. Diplo’s is very interesting, a great insturmental deconstruction of the track. I got this 12” at Reckless Records in Chicago. Cool Place.

DeeJay Punk-Roc
Far Out (Rasmus Remix)
Rockin’ It (Roc Raider Rockin’ It Remix)

His name is DeeJay Punk-Roc, I found this 12” in the rap section and the music is turntablist friendly big beat techno. Confused yet? What the hell happened to this guy? Anyone?

By the way, I’m going to meet Stan lee!

    In regards to Dee-Jay Punk Roc, the story is that it might have actually been Fatboy Slim or someone related to his camp on record, but Punk Roc was an actual DJ and would play live. Kinda strange, but it wouldn't surprise me with the way a lot of European producers did business back then.

    Deejay Punk-Roc – I loved his stuff, bought his debut CD "Chicken Eye," a mix CD he made around the same time ('98, I think – a great year!), then a 2-CD set of remixes (including the two you posted) called "Thrift Store Classics." He had a follow-up CD called "Spoiling It for Everyone" that I don't think ever was released in the U.S. – I never found it, anyway! What I recall reading about him several years back was that he was a New York club DJ who blew up in Europe and never came back. Good to see him getting some love!

    Thanks so much for the Cat People remix, it is cool in the Q flick, ironic because the remake of the Cat People film, not so hot. Appealing to the spirit of begging for a re-post, how about "The Devil is an Englishman" 12" by Dolby, please? TY Much.
