Whether you’re a fan of NYE or not here’s a track by Canadian Dooze Jackers for getting into the party mood. It’s a dutch-house delight featuring broken beats and pitch bending sirens.

Dooze Jackers – Got Line!

Another epic video and remix by friend James Connolly (L-Vis 1990).

A treat for your eyes and ears, allowing your mind to wander into the land of daydreams.

Well overdue but I’m finally back from the depths of studying to share a track by ‘Flotilla‘ from their recently released ’One Hundred Words For Water’ album. Sounds like Deerhoof, Kings of Convenience, Joanna Newsom.

This ones got an amazing harp solo accompanied by a delightfully subtle electronic bass melody. The perfect song for a calm cold Sunday.

Flotilla – Clouds

Being influenced by the everyday strangeness of the world around him, Ian’s signature combination of odd words and distorted characters make his style one of the most recognisable in the world of illustration.

I’m not really sure what it is about Ian Stevenson’s work that makes you so emotionally attached to his characters, or if any love you gave to them would even be appreciated. Some of the creations that dwell in his universe would appreciate a cuddle I’m sure, others would  be just as likely to cut you up in to little pieces and bury you in their garden.  No matter you get from Ian’s work one thing is clear, once you let your self be immersed in his world, there’s no going back!

A lot of readers may recognise Ian’s work from his commercial projects, having worked for a number of A-list clients including Microsoft, Perrier, E4, MTV and Paul Smith to name a few. If you’ve been reading our posts for any amount of time then you’ll know what huge Ian Stevenson fans we are here at Pejhy, so it is with great pleasure we give you our exclusive interview with the man behind the pen:

Any superpower, what would it be?
My super power would be Sarcasm, I’d join a gang of superheroes and they would call me ‘Sarcasma’. I would be the first person to appear at the crime scene and I’d use my sarcasm skills to annoy and wrong foot the enemy, possibly I would mock the villains outfit or mimic their voice. When they are suitably annoyed the other members of the team would arrive to defeat them properly.

If you could banish any three things from the universe what would they be?
I’ve thought about this one a lot and although I would like to change many many things I have started to think that if I did have the power to remove things I don’t like, then life might be too good and I would have nothing to moan about. I’ve managed to think of a few that would make my world a better place. The first would be working for free unless it’s for charity. There could be a law to protect artists and maybe it could be called Stevenson’s law or something and would mean that all jobs had to paid for properly. I’d also have to get rid of some of the trumpet based free jazz music as it seems to make me feel uneasy. Finally I would remove some of the talentless and useless celebrities, they deserve nothing more than to be constantly ignored.

What’s the best computer game ever made?
Commuting is like game, I weave in and out of the pre-programmed human like objects in my walking space ship.

If you dug a hole through the earth from one end to the other, lets say from the North Pole right down too the South Pole, and then you jumped down that hole, what would happen?
I imagine it would be fun for a few seconds, then you’d probably black out and eventually die either by being unable to breath or by your body being shredded to bits as it bounces off the sides like a rag doll.

When will we see your “Rubbish” book?
Soon… hopefully soon, oh I do hope it is soon. I have all the photos collated and now it just needs to be made into a book.

A couple of video treats today, both with aural and visual qualities.

First is a previously featured video by Ian Stevenson. After a long period of youtube removal ‘Stare Into The Sun’ is back for our eyes and ears to enjoy.

Second be something relatively new, being released on November 17th. Flairs bass full, kraut rocky instrumental has been given a visual aspect with this 8-bit style production by newcomer Jérémie Perin. It’s très funny, très dirty, très sexy, tres pejhy!

Following Vitalic’s recent LP ‘Flashmob’, ‘Poison Lips’ and a brand new track ‘Bluesy Tuesday’ have been packaged into an EP release. ‘Poison Lips’ is reminiscent of ‘Ok Cowboy’ content with some plucky disco bass. ‘Bluesy Tuesday’ is something a little new, it sounds like Vitalic with a sprinkle of Boy 8-Bit. Magnificent!

Vitalic – Bluesy Tuesday (Preview) [BUY]

Fan’s of Four Tet will be excited to hear that a new album is due for release on January 25th 2010. ‘There Is Love In You’ will be his fifth LP following nearly a five year span since Everything Ecstatic.

Here’s Joy’s version.

I was getting my hair cut last week and this song came on the radio. Little did I know whilst listening to it that Riton & Primary 1 had collaborated again. Splendid saxophone sounding synths, pitch bend pleasure and light hearted video.

Get A Room! is a brand new project by Rove Dogs and Jeff Lasson. Their initial three productions, as released on the ‘Small Time Cuts Vol.2′ EP, are re-edits of songs from the 80′s.

First is an instrumental edit of ‘Valery Allington’s – Stop’. An italo disco song brought right up to date with new drum and keyboard additions, bongo delight. Third is taken from a french movie Soundtrack composed by Ennio Morricone, piano madness.
