DJ Falcon at Banana Split Sundae

Posted on 27 October 2008 by shaunt

Just announced: [actually... it's not even announced yet]

This Sunday night WILL be epic. I have no doubt. It’s a Roulé Records reunion at LAX, as DJ Falcon will be headlining this week’s Banana Split Sundae. DJ Falcon is the label mate of Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, who released solo material on Thomas’ Roulé Records in the late 1990s. Roulé Records has a true cult following, particularly from die hard fans of Daft Punk. Enough of the history lesson; if you want to know more about these guys, look it up on discogs or wikipedia.

We are really stoked for this event. It’s going to be a sure-shot attempt at suicide for us [as well as a few others who will be spending the weekend going back and forth from LA to Vegas and back] to get to this event, but this is one of those MUST-GO events.

One more thing: if you look at the flier it says “and a super special banging guest…” Considering the festivities in town this weekend, who can this be? When there’s smoke, there’s fire. It’s going be off the hook. 

Again… DJ Fucking Falcon. Be there……………………. rsvp

Halloween Night in Los Angeles

Posted on 23 October 2008 by shaunt

So Halloween is almost a week away. Still don’t have plans? We can help. 

The good thing is that this Halloween there are plenty of choices of events to go to. We’re actually planning on going to not one, not two, but three places in the same night. 

First off, the most recently announced event is an Ed Banger Halloween Party.
 

Sponsored by Nike, the Ed Bangers will be hosting a Halloween Kick-Off party at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood. This is the same theater that Soulwax will be screening their Part of the Weekend Never Dies on the 28th. The new Busy P AirForces will be unveiled at the event, and you will have an opportunity to meet the members of the Ed Rec Crue, while still outfitted in your Daft Punk knock-off Halloween costume. There’s no RSVP, so just show up. The event starts at 5PM at the Montalban.

——————————————————————

What to do next? Well, of course there’s Hard Haunted Mansion, but if you don’t have tickets to it, or if you intend on showing up late, you could always check out an event sponsored by LA Metromix.

The people who brought you DanceRight at La Cita bring you Drop-Dead Gorgeous Halloween at the Natural History Museum directly South of USC. Here you can catch DJ Sets from Treasure Fingers, Classixx, and our pick Holy Ghost. The best part of this event is that it is absolutely free for admission. Don’t want to fork out $60 for a Hard Ticket? This is your best bet. There is a catch, though, to admission: you simply need to RSVP. Easy, right? Open up your favorite email program or webmail site and send your confirmation over to metromix@danceright.com.

If you’re going to this event and staying there, enjoy yourself. But if not, you always have the option of walking over to Hard Fest going on within walking distance. A safe bet would be to pay couple bucks and parking over at the University of Southern California Parking Structure X on Figueroa. This parking structure is located right in between, and is walking distance, both the Metromix and Hard events. That being said, you can head north on Figueroa and find yourself at one of the most epic electronic events that Los Angeles has ever hosted.

——————————————————————

Meet Hard Haunted Mansion.

 
With a line-up featuring the biggest names in electronic music, I have no doubt that this event will be the highlight of the night. You will have an opportunity to catch the likes of Justice, Soulwax, SMD, Boys Noize, Crystal Castles, Crookers, and a few others…… all in the same night! If you haven’t bought your tickets for this yet, you should because they may sell out and/or reach capacity early. So get your costume, get your ass to the Shrine on Halloween night, and prepare for one of the biggest nights of electronic music ever to take place in the western hemisphere. 

 

——————————————————————

But wait…. there’s more. Still not satisfied? Halloween is not just a night… it’s the whole weekend.
By the time you wake up the following morning hungover from Hard Fest, you have just enough time to get yourself and a few close companions in a car, and head east to the northbound Interstate 15. Follow the road for a couple hundred miles, and you will end up in Las Vegas where the party never ends. The Fabulous Festival is the biggest electronic show in Las Vegas history, where you can catch sets from  MSTRKRFT, Crystal Castles (again), DEADMAU5, HeartsRevolution, and [once again] the Ed Banger Crew featuring Busy P, DJ Mehdi, SebastiAn, SoMe and Mr Flash. Since Las Vegas is lenient with ordinances, curfews and whatnot, expect this event to go on until the wee hours.
We will be at all four events. And if these don’t satisfy you… I don’t know what else to say.

Shadow Dancer – Soap

Posted on 19 October 2008 by levon

Shadow Dancer, signed to Boys Noize Records, has a new track coming out. Soap is a hugely anticipated [and overdue] release on the label, and is expected to be released sometime within the next few months. The track has apparently been complete for quite some time now, as Erol Alkan dropped it during a DJ set last April.

Latest Boys Noize Remixes

Posted on 18 October 2008 by levon

  

Alex Ridha, aka Boys Noize, has recently released two remixes. One of his remixes is originally by CJ Bolland. Last but not least, one of Boys Noize’s finest, the long awaited Late of the Pier – Focker remix! The fast, glitchy distortion added to the songs gives it that epic build-up! Truely amazing. Listen to the track below.

Both tracks are transcoded to 160kbps. If you like it, go buy it.

Photos From Last Night – Detour Festival

Posted on 05 October 2008 by shaunt

LA Detour Festival

    Thousands of eager hipsters and indie kids flocked to downtown Los Angeles on Saturday for the third annual LA Weekly Detour Festival. A forty dollar ticket bought access to the festival which featured 25 acts on 4 outdoor stages, spread across six city blocks around City Hall.

    In matching red tracksuits, Norwegian band Datarock played their afternoon performance which delivered a stimulating jolt of energy to the crowd. The dance-punk group performed their hit Fa-Fa-Fa, and closed off the set with a saxophone solo which served as quite a warm up for the rest of the evening. Shana Halligan’s sensual alto paired with the ambient-infused performance by Bitter:Sweet provided a chilled-out vibe reminiscent of a cool martini bar.

    As dusk set, those that skipped the soulful, disco-inspired sound of Hercules and Love Affair, probably could not help but wander into the large crowd at the Triforum Stage to catch the headlining band, Gogol Bordello. Call it gypsy; call it punk; the irrepressible, kooky multi-ethnic music collective played an energizing two-hour set, incorporating a fiddler and an accordionist to accompany the animated vocals of front man Eugene Hutz. Genre-bending progressive rockers The Mars Volta closed off the night to the biggest crowd of the festival. As the group finished their set, the experimental progressions and intoxicating presentation of their compositions left the crowd in an aura of satisfaction. -Shaunt
