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 […]

Shiny Toy Guns

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 […]

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 […]

Hollertronix #10

This week marks the release of the final installment in what has been one of the most consistent and interesting remix series of the decade. Flipping the brand that he and Low Budget had built off of their legendary parties at the Ukie in Philadelphia, Diplo’s vinyl (and now digi-) releases have featured an eye-popping […]

Lee Mortimer

Choosing a DJ name can be hard. While first starting out as a DJ, selecting a name that will represent you while still sounding “cool” can seem of far greater import than learning anything related to the mixing of two songs. Many choose to assign themselves a name based on some abstract concept, a la […]

Hook N Sling

Sydney-born DJ Hook N Sling — having held residency at Ibiza’s legendary club Space and released mixes commissioned by Ministry of Sound — is probably better known to the big room, festival crowd than to the average music blog reader. But despite these apparent knocks against his hipster cred, he seems to have a taste […]

Mike the 2600 King

Friends are always surprised when I tell them that hip-hop actually began in Minnesota. And even more surprised when I tell that that’s not true and I just made it up. One man very familiar with hip-hop’s alleged birthplace is Land O’ Lakes resident, Mike the 2600 King. Coming off the success of the first […]

Maluca x Toadally Krossed Out

Today we look at two new artists on the Mad Decent label. First, New York native Maluca should be making waves in 2010 with her unique blend of cumbia, juke, rap and club music. Her first single “Tigeraso” created a lot of excitement when it debuted this past summer and she has since been remixed […]

U-Tern

So, last night I was hired to play the Christmas party for the local office of a major corporation and was happy to discover that traditional Christmas music in their company culture is the alternation of the Black Eyed Peas with Lady Gaga. Here was a conversation that repeated itself throughout the night: “So what […]

Tonight, join hundreds of San Francisco industry professionals as we not only celebrate the retrieval of Justin Martin and Matthew Higgins property, but take a serious look at we can do regain power, fight the police, and unite as one community in the San Francisco entertainment industry. The California Music and Culture Association is holding […]

Sticky K

11.30. Cyber Monday. When I first heard mention of this apparent holiday, I assumed that the “cyber” in Cyber Monday must refer to a certain deviant behavior that I had discovered in various internet chat rooms as an adolescent. The thought of an annual revival of that phenomenon on a mass scale got me excited, […]
