Turn Santa's Ho into House!

Danny J Lewis gets in the festive mood in this tutorial where he creates a bumping house beat by using just 3 yuletide source sounds (and absolutely nothing else!) - a chime, sleigh bells, and of course Santa's unmistakable Ho Ho HOOO!

Fatboy Slim Tears Up The Cliffs

Fatboy Slim A.K.A Norman Cook tore up Southends Cliffs Pavillion on Friday night (2nd December 2011) and Koothoomi Records were there to watch the master at work on the vinyl.

The night began with a shed load of Jagerbombs and with exciting new talent in the shape of Jackbeats and Doorly, the night got off to a flyer.

With Southend seafront getting lashed by rain and wind outside, the punters were very much on the lash inside with the bar 3 deep at anyone time, just adding to the anticipation of the Fatboy. Needless to say he didnt disapoint, and it will be a night to remember (just about!).

Norman said: "It’s been a classic year so far with raves on the Great Wall of China, beach parties in Tokyo and now festive fun in the Mecca’s and ballrooms of the UK".

Lyrics for the song are below:

Oh baby dont you know I suffer?
Oh baby can you hear me moan?
You caught me under false pretenses
How long before you let me go?

You set my soul alight
You set my soul alight

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the 'supermassive'

I thought I was a fool for no one
Oh baby I'm a fool for you
You're the queen of the superficial
And how long before you tell the truth

You set my soul alight
You set my soul alight

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the 'supermassive'

Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole

Oasis Records

With the death of Oasis in August 2009, Noel and Liam Gallagher have now gone on to form their seperate bands; Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Beady Eye respectively. Beady Eye have played Isle of Wight Festival and other gis this year and released a debut album and singles including Millionaire, while Noel has an upcoming tour and the release of his debut solo album by the same name as the band.

While all of this is great, we cant forget about Oasis and the impact they had on the music/indie scene, as for many, including myself they were the soundtrack to the 90's / early 00's. To celebrate this Koothoomi Records have lots of Oasis vinyl records for sale including Some Might Say 7 inch, D'ya Know What I Mean 7 inch and many more.
