Bart B More Video!

WOW! What a killer show! Thanks all for coming out. Props to Tron Jeremy (www.gottadancedirty.com) Nisus (www.nisusthemovement.com) BART BMORE (www.bartbmore.com) and of course Blasthaus in the highest. The photos from the night are up! I edited together a highlights video from the night, with some killer tracks being dropped, and everybody going nuts! Next up […]

Telephoned
Telephoned

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 — […]

Jokers of the Scene

When most Americans think of Ottawa, they picture the historic cholera outbreak of 1832 or the precise urban planning of Frenchman Jacques Greber. However, in addition to being recognized for these fascinating details, Canada’s capitol city supports a pretty solid little house scene. At the center of this lies Disorganized (now Frenzy), a monthly party […]

Thom Yorke x Atoms for Peace

Most people assume that using drugs you’ve found lying on a city sidewalk is a perfectly reasonable and safe thing to do. Thus, they’re often surprised when I tell them a story which reveals that perhaps, in some rare cases, found drugs are better left alone. It was the summer of 2003, the war in […]

Fake Blood x Boy 8 Bit

Everyone loves a good mystery, especially when that mystery is solved by a talking dog and a group of meddling kids. So in 2008 when some quality dance tracks (including the massive “Mars”) began appearing around the innertron produced by the then-unknown producer Fake Blood, there was active speculation in the dancenerd community as to […]

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 – […]

DJ Riz

Last week, I came across this mix by DJ Riz — co-founder of Crooklyn Clan and arguably one of the best hip-hop DJs alive. Now best known for his website, where DJs can buy the latest BEP song mashed up with “Love is Gone,” Riz is also kind of amazing behind the decks and apparently […]

M.A.N.D.Y.

German production duo Patrick Bodmer & Philipp Jung, together known by the curiously effeminate label M.A.N.D.Y., gained fame in 2005 with their club hit “Body Language,” a collaboration with Booka Shade, with whom they also partnered in launching the Get Physical record label. Tomorrow night M.A.N.D.Y. visits SF, headlining a show at Paradise Lounge. Opening […]

Afrojack

Dutch DJ/Producer Afrojack has been on fire for the past year, steadily churning out bangers including cross-over hits produced for Major Lazer and Pitbull. Yesterday, he dropped this throwback acid house number, which is vaguely reminiscent of The Chemical Brothers during their raver hey-day. You can buy this and other Afrojack tracks here. Enjoy: Afrojack […]

Solo

So, then she said, “What’s your favorite position?” and I was like, “the fetal position.” And then we made out. Anyway, kind of a late pass on this one but I recently came across this EP by UK DJ Solo and it is pretty dope. UK Funky with shades of last year’s smash “Trompeta.” You […]

DJ Jazzy Jeff

Brooklyn Circus made a last minute announcement today regarding their regular hip hop & soul party at Yoshi’s (SF) Le Cirque and it doesn’t get much bigger. The party has been moved downstairs to the main performance venue and headlining will be none other than DJ Jazzy Jeff. Friend of The Projects King Most and […]

Morse Code

Former San Franciscan and now Southern Californian DJ Morse Code just released an indie dance mix today that should appeal to any fan of synths and disco basslines. I’ve managed to catch him live a number of times and his shit is generally sick. You can catch him February 20th at Medjool. Morse Code – […]

French Fries

French Fries, the appropriately named French producer who scored a hit with his afro-beat single “Coconut” last year, has just released a new EP on Youngunz entitled “Arma.”  This time FF combines several current dance music trends and the resulting beats are perfect for any tech house or UK funky set.  Or just for folding […]

DJ Excel

Ol’ head DJ Excel of Philly’s Skratch Makaniks crew is one of those rare DJs that possesses both insane turntablist skills and the rare ability to rock any party. After regrettably missing Edan’s set last week at SOM’s Change the Beat party (which was apparently unbelievable), I’ve been rabidly devouring classic hip hop sets in […]

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 […]

Tiga Interview Tiga: Ciao! Means Forever

So much in electronic music takes it’s self so seriously. Blah blah detroit, this one time at Berghain newest upand comingwhatever. Going to the club should make you laugh like the first time you got through the door with a fake id. Tiga knows this and has found in himself the douchiest character that comes […]

Solid Gold LovE!
Solid Gold LovE!

This year, the Solid Gold Jacuzzi was arguably the biggest, baddest, goldest float at Civic Center. With a scissor lift raising the DJ booth 30ft in the air, towering over City Hall, there’s now doubt it was the most memorable. The Gold JaCREWzzi met up early Sat AM to be sprayed, painted, stenciled, glittered and […]

Bring On the Gold!

Solid Gold Jacuzzi is ramping up for an amazing float full of epic music and epic surprises. In addition to the gold madness at Civic Center, Solid Gold Jacuzzi is also teaming up with Om Records for […]

Solid Gold Jacuzzi Party @ Supperclub Goes Off!

If you were at the Solid Gold Party, a fundraiser for the 2009 Lovefest float, you witnessed the choas and calamity that ensued. With an incredible DJ lineup featuring Cocheze, Nisus, Sleazemore, Rchrd Oh!?, Shane King, Morale, Eric Sharp, and LA’s Heist DJ’s, the jams were booming all night. San Franpsycho came out and did […]
