EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: DJ Hell - The DJ (feat. P. Diddy) (Paul Woolford Blackout Remix)
2009's most bewildering dance record? That would be "The DJ", DJ Hell's collaboration with our old friend P. Diddy. Aside from any nominal weirdness, there's the accompanying twenty-eight minute Radio Slave remix and the online fit Felix Da Housecat threw over Hell's alleged thievery of the Diddy vocal. But since we aren't The Brooklyn Vegan Of German Techno (sadly), we are just going to offer Paul Woolford's heaving, ten-minute-plus version, all squirrel space waves and high pressure drum machine gas, and ask you–is this really that weird? We always thought Diddy was best as a hype man, and hearing him yell about "twenty minute versions" over incisive European tech house is actually kind of awesome.
