Dance of the Day: Joshua Tree

Dance of the Day: Thanksgiving weekend at Joshua Tree National Park.

This is a celebratory dance, but also a bit of a mourning dance as there were many a bomb blast to be heard from the not so distant hills.... The largest Marines combat training base is located in the adjacent town of 29 Palms.

Maluca's Cookie pt 2

Part 2 of Isla dancing for Maluca at Club Nokia...

btw 4:46 may not seem like a long time when you are, say, watching a crap movie on hulu, but if you are improvising a dance to this crazy tropical bmore baile music in front of 1000 Robyn fans....

Lets just say every second counts.

Dance of the Day: Maluca opening for Robyn

it was a good time at Club Nokia...

Maluca had to leave her dancers back in NY, and she asked Isla to hold it down on the booty popping front in their place...

Maluca had a great show, and Robyn proves once again fembots really do have feelings.

This is a video response to the oil spill in the gulf of mexico. The song was written in 2001 as a response to 911, but it seems more relevant now than ever before....

I get emails all the time from PR people trying to get me to post their clients stuff.. That's cool.. I appreciate it. Only thing is the people they want me to post don't really need my help; they are already well promoted.

Everyonce in a while i get one that makes me think.. Like HighBloo from Belgium. I think I was the first to post his ass and now look at him!

So let me introduce Nonsense, from Cairo Egypt. Don't know much else, not really even a pic to go with! Check out these tracks and if you know anything, post a comment.

Kavinsky is Back!!

I'm a big Kavinsky fan. I've posted on him before, listened to his music, been to his shows, put his songs on mixtapes, made mashups with his songs. Even did a show with him. Yes, we did, and he turned to ME for tech support when his CDJs didn't work in Berlin. I was the nerdiest one behind the dj booth, and yes, I was the one to plug the CDJ from phono to Line in. Me. I made it happen for Kavinsky.. and now this mix can make it happen for YOU.

download the mix here

1. History Lesson – The Beepers
2. Flashing – Goblin
3. Spleeper In Metropolis – Anne Clark
4. Crockett’s Theme – Jan Hammer
5. Kiss Me Hardy – Serge Gainsbourg
6. Fire In My Heart – Escape From New York
7. Moochi’s Death – John Carpenter
8. Overdose – Cerrone
9. Beach Theme – Tangerine Dream
10. Roche (Kavinsky Remix) – Sebastien Tellier
11. Nightcall – Kavinsky

here's the original post at

and here's what Kavinsky says about this mix:

“This mix is automatically generated by my car when I start the engine. This is the music that flows in my veins. My car knows this. For the first time ever, you are able to listen to this program outside of my car. Enjoy."

Not to go on and on, but I love the fact that this mix is not dominated by hipster jams, but rather Kavinsky's unique asthetic.

Looking forward to the single Nightcall, which is either out now or will be soon. Oh, and i should mention the remix contest. figure that one out on your own, homie.

New Berlin.

New Berlin : Super Social djmix : 2010bynewberlin

Anthony Mauzy is New Berlin. He is of the new generation of DJ/Artist/Producer/New Media Cool Guy. Here is his blog:

Just listen to this mix. There are some classics and some surprises, and it WILL make you feel like that guy in the picture. He obviously has impeccable taste in music (and scarves) and knows, without having to try, where the hottest minimal party is. More to follow on New Berlin.... There may be a collaboration in the future....... Perhaps one day we will all meet in New Berlin.

Beat It - A Cover

Some say it is impossible to put a new spin on something that is spun so often, but we disagree.

That's why we've offered the world this cover of a classic song that will probably never stop being relevant.

Check it out:

Beat It by Michael Jackson - Covered by Purple Crush

and here:

Beat it (Purple Crush Full On Cover) by Purple Crush

PS if you are wondering whether or not we re created the guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen, you'll just have to listen to find out!

Bass Music Sessions

<a href="">BackFoot by bass music</a>

Hey. Was just nerding out and found this album available right here. It works like this. You decided what price you pay for the download. Anywhere from 0 dollars to whatever you can afford, and it goes to a charitable cause over in the UK.

As far as the music, its like my favorite kind.... Instrumental funky electronic bass. dig.

Also, check out this interview on the making of this collection On top of that there is a rather exhaustive (in their words) diary of the creation, reasons behind and distribution of this record right here.

Mad props

Really like the melody on this track. Great production by David Guetta. Is it just me or is this video Avatar-esque?

BTW I used to have my nose pierced like that. No good in allergy season. And I don't take claritin, suckers!

J-Wow, Buraka Som Sistema

This song is dope: Lot of different styles put together in a seemless bag of goodies.

J-Wow is one of the guys from Buraka Som Sistema, gone solo.

Here's a nice mix he did. I also recommend the Blood Diamonds Mix from Buraka. You have to enter your email to get it, but hey, I want to know what these guys are up to, don't you?

Jokes, Juke, and Joker

Aziz Ansari is funny. I watch Parks and Recreation and think he's hilarious as Tom Haverford. But like all good comedians, he is a musician as well. He goes by Raaaaaaaandy (that's randy with 8 a's for those not in the know). Check out his mixtape where he calls out rappers for not delivering their verses.

And now to business: Juke. Know it, love it. Dare to Dj it. Fancy Footwork is a must.

Home Sweet House (2009) from John Pappas on Vimeo.

Lastly, we are all fans of the producer known as Joker, are we not? well he's got a new tune dropping and here it is for your previewing pleasure:

air out!
