DJ White Mike – Rub It In live mix

So, DJ Nisus asked me to put together a demo of “non-mainstream” tracks that he could pass along to some friends of his and the below mix was born. The mix was put together in two days recorded live off of Serato, and contains some of my favorite current house/techno tracks. Check out the link […]

The Twelves
The Twelves Mezzanine Blasthaus White Mike Nisus february 2011

When you hear the word “Brazilian,” the first image that comes to mind might not be a pair of disco djs/producers from Rio — especially given the duo’s apparent aversion to shaving. But despite this unfortunate fact, Brazilian performers The Twelves have emerged as one of the world’s premier electronic acts, being labeled “Rio de […]

Merry Christmas!

It was somewhere in the middle of my adolescence that I began to question why one of our most oft-played Christmas songs involved a child bearing witness to his mother’s adultery. Especially baffling given my upbringing, was the child’s naive conclusion that his father would react with good humor after seeing his mommy “tickling” Santa […]

Scionify! w/ Gaslamp Killer and DJ Craze

As far as corporate sponsorship goes, Scion is kinda killing it. I’ve gathered quite a little collection of Scion themed SWAG over the past few years from various parties. I’ve got two adorable pairs of pink Scion panties that read “What Moves You” on the ass (hey, its better than “juicy”), i’ve got sampler CDs […]

As a DJ, over the years I’ve developed a few routines that I like to break out here and there to keep my sets interesting. Sometimes I do this thing where I’ll play the sample source and mix it into the song using the sample. I call it “Single City.” Other times I’ll loop a […]

There is a long history of ironic, white covers of popular hip-hop and R&B tracks — from Dynamite Hack singing “Boyz in the Hood” in golf sweaters and flip flops, to Little Boots’ recent melancholic cover of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite.” In general, these attempts range from the retarded to the horribly offensive — […]

Felix Cartal x Christian Martin

A couple of things about ducks: 1) the males have giant, corkscrew-shaped penises and 2) they have an unfortunate penchant for gang-rape. While I was in college, a few friends and I had just finished a delicious and affordable meal at a South Bay Chili’s when we witnessed one of the more disturbing spectacles of […]
