Straight off the back of his epic remix of Dylan Rhymes' and Tom Real's "Godzilla", Fussy Boy returns to the scene with his first killer single - "Jonni"
This rocket of a tune starts with an unassuming Tech groove and cascades into a searing synth frenzy that has the early signs of becoming Fussy Boy's trademark sound. Showing partiality towards fierce peak time numbers, as demonstrated here with "Jonni" it's easy to see why Fussy Boy has already gained the support of Mstrkrft, Boys Noize, D.I.M. and the like and looks set to make a heavy mark on the Indie Dance/Nu Disco (or electro house if you are beatport) scene this year.
On the flip - Robosapians step up to the remix duties, putting their very own techy spin on the lead track with a techno re-rub. A darker and more driving take on the original, focusing on rolling bass grooves and a tripped out melody that slowly builds into something more relentless. This track is pure late night filth in the way that Lot49 does it best.
A solid first single from Fussy Boy and another Lot49 classic in the making. Expect to be hearing both of these throughout clubland for the foreseeable future.

LEE COOMBS "PUNJI" + ZODIAC CARTEL & THE OMEGA MEN REMIXES
This release follows up from the awesome single 'Detox' taken from Lee's highly acclaimed 2009 album 'Light & Dark'. Here Florida-based Lee Coombs and Lot49 deliver an exclusive album extra entitled 'Punji' and in true Lot49 style there are a few very tasty remixes to boot.
The original mix is a no holds barred monster of a dancefloor cut and is a powerful example of Coombs negotiating exquisitely a mixture of the various breaks influences he has accrued over his long spanning career. As you'd expect with Coombs, pounding kicks, naughty arpeggiated lines winding snake-like through the mids, unnerving vocal cuts and a trademark breakdown dropping briefly into a hip hop motif before smashing back into the main theme – quite simply, top stuff.
On remix duties we have the veritable Zodiac Cartel and very little need to be said about this man who seriously laid down the skills in 2009 to position himself as one of the 'go-to' producers in the warehouse field. Here on Punji he picks up the theme from Lee's original and runs with it producing a jacking bassline house classic - the very style that has given him such notoriety.
Completing the Punji package is our debut remix commission for Lot49's 'New Lot Competition' finalists The Omega Men. Here they take things a little deeper and a touch lighter on the theme to produce a distinctive late-night tech-house roller. Watch out for the breakdown on this one too - it’s massive.
