Not Another Haiti Post…
Not Another Haiti Post…

It’s fairly unnecessary to recap the events of Haiti’s devastating earthquake last week, in yet another tedious blog post. I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now (and if not, turn to a more credible organization for your facts, not a blog.) Truth is, the details of the ‘quake don’t matter nearly as much as […]

Mix of the Month

2010 is but a few weeks old and already we’ve seen the release of a number of really bangin’ mixes. My favorite thus far is a tech-house mix from D.C. duo Nadastrom. Originally posted as a promo mix for New York monthly Flashing Lights, which includes Fool’s Gold’s Nick Catchdubs, Night Shifter’s Jess Jubilee and […]

Idioma

Another lesson was that driving giant, […]

Caligula
Caligula

If there’s one thing Americans love, it’s 1st Century Roman-style orgies. It’s that unique mixture of old world hygiene, sex slaves and exotic STDs that you just can’t find at your typical contemporary “sugar party.” No one understands this better than bicoastal production team Caligula, made up of sometime San Franciscan Vin Sol and weirdo […]

The xx

Oh hey, have you heard of these guys?? Okay well…. a couple new remixes have come out of late that you can add to your collection and they’re not bad. The first is a disco edit from Grand Theft — one half of Canada’s bottle service duo Team Canada. Second is a simple edit of […]

LA-based and Grammy-nominated electropop act Shiny Toy Guns this past month released a remix album entitled “Girls Le Disko” that compiles the best of their remixes over the past few years, including reworkings by Boys Noize, Evol Intent and Kissy Sell Out, as well as trance names BT and Ferry Corsten. Nadastrom and HervĂ© have […]

Be Prepared: New Years and the SFPD

NYE Promoters and Venue Owners: According to the CMCA (California Music and Culture Association), tonight the SFPD and the ABC are going to be focusing all of their efforts on NYE parties and events. They have planned a ‘zero tolerance’ policy on any ‘breach’ in conduct. This will be patrolled by both uniform and undercover […]

Them Jeans

LA’s favorite big and tall DJ Them Jeans (Banana Split, Cinespace Tuesdays) today dropped this drummed up edit of one of my favorite recent tracks from Baltimore’s Beach House. Perfect for a melancholic winter Sunday like today. Also included is his edit of “Shelter,” which is my after-after party track of the year. Enjoy: Beach […]
