Benny Smiles has given me one of my favourite tracks of the last month already with ‘Sunday Morning’ (below) but here in a turn into Rubberbandits territory, the Loud Mouth Collective producer combines with Ballz Deep (who wrote the lyrics and sings the tune) and goes for the art heads with an R&B jam about an NCAD Girl, that’s guaranteed to have Thomas Street buzzing.

“The afterparty is in Andrew’s Lane… Oh my god, the music is so amazing. There’ll be jizz and crunkstep, UK garage toolbox, grime, retro future cyberwave and a new minimalist techno from Berlin. It’s so minimal it’s actually silent… it’s so coooool..”


Before this morning, I had heard Jedward’s Irish Eurovision entry one time. Why I would need to hear it again was not up for discussion. I’ve now heard it twice thanks to actually-deadly Trophy Boyfriend’s chillwavey re-interpretation of ‘Lipstick’. I had to check it was the same tune.

Gregor Ruigrok says he liked the song so he decided to remix it as a joke. As it turns out this remix makes Jedward sound like some Scandanavian pop stars remixed by some blog buzzing producer. It reminds me of The Sound Of Arrows. Whether you like this or not, probably depends on your familiarity with the original. It was produced by Misk and artwork by Alan O’Regan. So there you have it. Jedward featured on Nialler9. It’s all downhill from here folks…
