To help get you all excited for Decibel Festival next week the folks over here at Bottom Forty are going to be giving away a track each day this week, leading up to our Decibel opening showcase with Ejeca, Pillowtalk, Riff-Raff and Pavone next Wednesday at Chop Suey (Get your tixxx here!). Even if it gets us in trouble, here’s some love from our secret stash.
To start off, I want you to take home this bootleg remix of The Smiths, because it’s probably the only good remix of the Smiths ever made.
Enjoy, and RSVP to our showcase! We are sure to turn it out for you.

And now for something new, well not completely new. V (aka Valique) who’s real name is Valentine Golovachev, hails from Moscow, Russia. He’s been turning out rock-solid and tight as hipster jeans edits for quite a while. His 5th volume of edits was recently released, and I must say it’s his best effort so far.
Bottom Forty’s own spaceotter turned me onto Valique last year when we were throwing our weekly party at The Cuff. He dropped V’s edit of Betty Wright‘s “Slip And Do It” which immediately sent me running up to the booth to find out who was behind this masterful edit. The original is an absolute classic, but Valique added his razor-sharp touches and extended all the right parts to make one of the best soul edits ever made.
