the avalanches made quite a splash in 2003 with the release of their splendid 'since i left you' LP. then they jus disapeared off the planet, save for the occassional dj show or remix for other artists. if you can catch them live, they play party-style sets with lots of house and 80's funk - all blended together seamlessly with a real sense of fun above all.

before they released 'since i left you', the boys (still including dexter at the time) leaked an underground mixtape which bears many similarities to the album proper, but including many recognisable samples which they (presumably) couldn't license legally. running in at 45 mins, 'gimix' is by far their best dj mix imho, and it causes me to grin like a bastard everytime i hear it. the sample list is as follows:

01. Since I Left You / The Avalanches
02. Holiday / Madonna
