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 […]

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 […]

For the past ten-plus years, Alkan has been steadily churning out dancefloor bangers, remixing the likes of Justice, Interpol, Mylo, Bloc Party, The Chemical Brothers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Klaxons, […]

Pilooski

One of my favorites, French disco edit master Pilooski a month ago released a 12″ vinyl only single whose A-side was a house remake of Nora Dean’s “Angie La-La.” It’s titled simply “AAA” and it is a 9 minute early a.m. house epic. It wouldn’t hurt to be high for this one. Enjoy: Pilooski – […]
