The photos are finally up…

HERE is the review of the evening

So about the night:
During James Murphy’s set, if you closed your eyes, you’d think you’re at a full-on discotheque (of course, i’m to young to really know what that means… but take my word for it [not that it matters]).
But the night really didn’
t climax till Tiga blasted everyone into another mindimension dropping some of his new shit, some tracks for sexor and all kinds of other electro[clash] stuff. To say the least, it was the best CONTROL in a while.






Missed Tiga at CONTROL? He will be at HARD SUMMER FESTIVAL this August 8th. In other news, James Murphy will be making a special guest appearance at the Verdugo Bar in Glassell Park tonight.

CLICK IT or any of the photos above to see the album. High-res photos are found on our FLICKR. Taken May 29th 2009 at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA.

Boys Noize – Starter EP (2009)

Posted on 31 May 2009 by levon

Oi! Boys Noize has an upcoming EP set to release in June! His new EP called “Starter” incorporates Alex’s classic, electro-house elements, capable of blowing away the speakers and your mind. Tracks on the EP include “Starter” and “Jeffer”.

I heard the 30 second preview to the tracks and I was stunned. I couldn’t wait till the EP was released, so I made an extended edit of the preview for my own pleasure, and for yours as well.

(Non)Photos from TIGA at CONTROL

Posted on 30 May 2009 by shaunt

We’re back, and i’m here typing away when I really could be (should be) asleep by now…

We arrived at CONTROL early enough to see no more than a handful of people on the dancefloor, but by the end of Destructo’s opening set the Avalon began to live up to its expectation of being a danceclub.

Last night’s CONTROL was one of the best yet.

Question: What could be better than some of the world’s best electronic producers operating the decks within a lit ultra-massive ghettoblaster up on stage?
I’ll tell you: Seeing some of the world’s best electronic producers operating the decks within a lit ultra-massive ghettoblaster up on stage WITH access to free cocktails from Bacardi.

So about the night:
During James Murphy’s set, if you closed your eyes, you’d think you’re at a full-on discotheque (of course, i’m to young to really know what that means… but take my word for it [not that it matters]).
But the night really didn’t climax till Tiga blasted everyone into another mindimension dropping some of his new shit, some tracks for sexor and all kinds of other electro[clash] stuff. To say the least, it was the best CONTROL in a while.

This post wouldn’t be complete without some electronic industry gossip, right? Before his set, I had a chance to speak to Tiga about the future of ZZT (for those of you who don’t know, ZZT is the name of the EPIC collaboration between Tiga and Zombie Nation which has produced such tracks as Lower State of Consciousness and The Worm). Tiga hinted at the possibility of a full-on ZZT album within the not-so-distant future. Also, we asked about Russian producer [as well as label-mate] Proxy and whether he’d ever come to play in the U.S.. From what we knew, Proxy was having some visa issues, but Tiga assured us that this is [would get] resolved and that we’d soon probably get a chance to see a Proxy DJ set here in the States.
Bottom line, Tiga killed it, as the crowd kept going strong until 3AM (European readers: this is actually LATE for L.A.).

Blah blah blah blahblah… The fact of the matter is, you don’t want to read this. You want your photos. Face it. In reality, you’re probably on this site wondering whether or not you look intoxicated in the photos the kid and I took of you last night. I can’t help you with that…. yet.
Photos tomorrow.
GOOD NIGHT.

Update: (5/31) Photos are now up HERE…

Photos from HARD presents DEADMAU5

Posted on 23 May 2009 by shaunt

Somehow, we’ve managed to get back.
I have to say, the mouse really packed the house.

A special thanks to Kurt, Tom and the rest of the HARD guys for making it happen. Missed this event? HARD presents a live performance from the Prodigy next week.

So these photos are already up. Can you believe it? Sometimes we even amaze ourselves. This makes us the fastest fucking site on the web. CLICK IT for the snaps.

We’re going up north for the weekend. See you at Swimming With the Sharks this Sunday….rsvp here. In town tomorrow? Fischerspooner’s playing a show Saturday night… but really, the afterparty is the one to go to. Tickets HERE.

That being said, all the photo editing is complete. As i sit here questioning my own sanity i’d like to inform you that it is currently 5:40AM and sleep is long overdue. GOOD NIGHT… for now at least.

We caught Dopplereffekt live at the Scion House Party last night. The duo’s space-age minimal techno left the Roxy crowd in a tripped-out stupor. It was interesting to say the least…

Also, before heading to the Scion event we checked out a fashion event at the Ted Baker store in Beverly Hills.

ENOUGH of YESTERDAY… Flash forward to TONIGHT’s EVENTS:

Tonight Vice and Colt45 present Drop the Lime and CLASSIXX at Dance Right. RSVP HERE.

Everyone’s favourite tech-house-mouse DEADMAU5 is playing a special DJ set at the Apple store in Santa Monica at the Promenade. umm… RIGHT NOW. If you’re not already there, don’t bother as i hear it’s nearly impossible to get in at this point. But don’t dispair, DEADMAU5 will be destroying the Palladium with help of DESTRUCTO and company… the bad news is that that’s sold out as well. The good news is that you have a couple more hours to find a friendly scalper. We can help with that.

God damn.. don’t you ever get sick of electronic music? I know i do. TONIGHT, Gypsy-punks Gogol Bordello are performing at the Fox Theater in Pomona.

That’s all folks. We’ll see you tomorrow at the Palladium.

We’re back from the Detroit Bar where we caught DJ Falcon last night.




Here are the photos
from last night’s DJ Falcon gig in Orange County. Click any of the photos above to see the gallery, or visit our flickr for high res shots.. Taken May 16th, 2009 in Costa Mesa, CA.

I got a chance to speak to DJ Falcon and asked about what his plans are. He says he’s moved his recording studio, and plans to return to Paris to produce some new material very soon…. Can’t wait… If you haven’t heard his original material, look up his Roule 308 release (which is under the record label founded by Daft Punk’s own Thomas Bangalter…)

In other news, we now have a facebook fan page and will update that with the photos we take. Join up and tag yourselves.
