NO SATISFACTION. EVER.   2 comments

Benny Benassi – Satisfaction (Afrojack Remix) (zshare)

Fresh out of fucking people’s brains and feet last night, Walmer remains still unsatisfied. Why? Because we want more. We want to fuck people’s brains and feet all over town. All over the world. We want to explode onto the scene like this missile exploded onto this house. The world will not be ruled by boring house or funk or whatever you heard a million times before. We bring the new shit. Getting more Walmer Convenience is easy. You can write to your local parliamentary representative or organize a rally with your friends. Or you can just fucking e-mail us and pay us money to play in your club. There are so many choices.

DAGGERDAY PICS!   3 comments

Here’s what went down last Saturday at The Ossington. Basically a carnival of madness. Listen to this song while you look at them and it will all make sense:

Elephant Man – Breed It (zshare)

TOP POSTS OF 2009!   Leave a comment

Why? Because we wanted to wait until 2009 was over and nobody cared about it to highlight what you, the readers, thought were our most important posts. This is what you were into:

1. SONG OF THE DAY: DENNIS DJ – JONATHAN Ii

That song came out in like 1912 and soldiers sang it on the way to the front during WWI. Why did you want it so much?

2. A FUCK YOU EVERYBODY SONG OF THE DAY: MAJOR LAZER ft SANTIGOLD & MR LEXX – HOLD THE LINE

Ok, that makes more sense.

3. SONG OF THE DAY: TIFA – SPELL IT OUT

This was a pretty good song too. A fun song for fun times. Tifa = best female dancehall MC.

4. SONG OF THE DAY: DIZZEE RASCAL – STAND UP TALL (RADIOCLIT REMIX) (SCHLACHTHOFBRONX REMIX)

Nice! This was one of our favourite this year. Glad people in some part of the world agree because it was not popular in Toronto. In fact, we are the only people that played it that we know of. Schlachthofbronx are easily in the running for top producers of 2009 in our books.

5. SONG OF THE DAY: RYE RYE FT MIA – BANG (BURAKA SOM SISTEMA CARNIVAL REMIX)

Ok, we get this one too. In retrospect this song is not that great but Rye Rye and M.I.A. and Buraka Som Sistema all had a great year so that makes sense. Buraka Som Sistema did a concert in Toronto that was the best concert of 2009.

6. SONG OF THE DAY: ALCIDES – VIOLETA (EL REMOLON REMIX)

The Dirty Frenchman loves this track. It is basicaly the climax of his latest mix. It is like his anthem. It tells the story of his life. And he doesn’t even know what the song is about.

7. ANOTHER ATL HIP HOP SONG OF THE DAY: GUCCI MANE FEAT. YO GOTTI – CHUU

This makes sense because we all know that we’re now allowed to like Gucci Mane. Big Gucci Mane year it was that 2oo9. He has a mixtape with Diplo out today. Different than you thought it would be.

8. OSBCURE DANCEHALL SONG OF THE DAY: WARD 21 – PRESIDENT OF HOOCHIE LAND

Here is another golden oldie that you guys just wanted to read about. It was popular when Teddy Roosevelt was president of the USA. In fact, it was written to celebrate his inauguration.

9. SONG OF THE DAY: OJ DA JUICEMAN – FUCK WIT ME DAWG

The people were searching for OJ Da Juiceman in droves. He touched their hearts and opened their minds.

10. WALMER CONVENIENCE PRESENTS:

That was a pretty good party. Check out the picks here.

Well that is what you were clicking in 2009. That is what people were clamouring for.  Your have looked into the mirror. What do you see?

WE HAVE MODERATE CLOUT VOL 2   5 comments

This is our motorbike:

WE GOT MODERATE CLOUT BITCHES!

Like we said before, we get songs sent to us to talk about on our blog because there are people out there who think we have influence on people’s tastes.  We get emails like this:

Hello Walmer Convenience

Low Life Inc. here with some great music from Skinnerbox with a 2 cuts from their debut album King of Spades & Marmalades on Berlin’s Doxa Records, an older cut and one unreleased.

There’s pics, cover art and a full press release in the press kit below…please post pics & mp3s.

And then continue like this:

The particular view on a musical future might have been considerably different when Olaf Hilgenfeld (Berlin) met Iftah Gabbai (Jerusalem) for first sessions in 2004. The piano player Hilgenfeld used the accordion that time mainly, whilst Gabbai was using all instruments available, a computer was among those more by chance. Only one year later the duo Skinnerbox played regularly on such uplifting, innovative off-partys that came up in the new Techno generation again. That was just the beginning. Skinnerbox have developed a purely electronically composed and performed music (partly featuring vocals by Elle_P) – that is not based on loops but improvised Techno inspired House and Minimal House. The roles in the duo are clearly settled: Olaf Hilgenfeld – Moog synthesizer, Iftah Gabbai – hardware drum machines, Max/MSP und Ableton Live. All these distinct impacts and effects can be heard on their various releases from the last two years, but far better in their live sets. Skinnerbox are an experience, taking you on expedition with paralyzing Minimal, breaking House, hard-edged Techno- Jazz, and ambient Electronica futurism.

It was a desire to eternalize this play- & colorful diversity, often just caused by the moment, as entire homogeneity. Thus, they needed to leave temporarily their environmental Techno and Minimal House scapes. ”King Of Spades And Marmalades” – the result – is a Jazz Opus wrapped into a Disco suitcase. It is a reminiscence as well as going far ahead of daily musical habits, shown not at least by the order of tracks, do not starting with a stunning hit of the album, but with 20 minutes of challenge.

Thanks Again,

Low Life Inc.

And then follow up like this:

Hello again,

Just checking back with you to see if you received the letter below, would love for you to post something on the release if you’re into it.

Let us know either way.

Thanks,

LowLifeInc.

Sorry for all the text. This is Walmer, not English Class. Now this is all good and polite and we thank them for thinking we have clout. Moderate clout. But these guys must never read this blog because if they did then they would know that this is not Walmeresque at all:

Skinnerbox – Naked Man (direct link)

Really Low Life Inc? Is this the kind of thing you think we are gonna boost? This doesn’t fit in with anything we have ever written about ever. And not just that. This is a terrible song. Good luck to you Skinnerbox with your “jazz opus wrapped in a disco suitcase”. Weird Al fans are gonna be all over this. Plus who writes for you Low Life Inc? What does “Only one year later the duo Skinnerbox played regularly on such uplifting, innovative off-partys that came up in the new Techno generation again.” Can we quote you on that? Oops we just did. Well thanks still. It’s the gesture that is important. Keep the music coming but can you at least send us shit we might remotely be interested in? This one is a better one Low Life Inc. sent us:

Zoot Woman – We Won’t Break (Popular Damage Remix) (direct link)
