Photos from Rusko at Control

Posted on 24 November 2009 by shaunt

Last Friday, we were at the biggest Control yet. I’ve never seen a line for the Avalon as long as the one for Rusko. I’ve heard that the house packed about 4000 people that night! On top of things, we even had trouble getting in, but once it was settled, we walked into one of the most intense gigs ever. The energy in the room was absolutely ridiculous. I suppose dubstep music is really getting big (…or rather IS already). Photos are up.

Photos from Vice 15th Anniversary Party and Kia Soul Collective Tour

Posted on 09 November 2009 by shaunt

Friday night, we started out the evening at Siren Studios in Hollywood where Diplo played a special early evening DJ set. Sponsored by Kia Motors, this was the second night of the double-header event at the venue. Unlike the choas that was the Crystal Castles show the previous night, the show on Friday began sober, but by 9PM the energy ultimately built up to levels surpassing expectations. Thanks to the Kia people for putting on these two gigs. Hopefully we’ll see more of it in the months ahead.
Following the Kia Soul Collective event, we drove a couple blocks over to the LA Ukrainian Center where Vice Magazine was hosting their 15th Anniversary party, sponsored by Hornitos Tequila. Reflective of my Junior High gymnasium, the choice of venue mimicked the 1994-esque cultural cliche theme perfectly. Though i have little recollection of this, the photos show that this event got wild by the end of the night.

A Minute with Zombie Nation

A Minute with Zombie Nation

Posted on 05 November 2009 by admin

We got a chance to speak to Zombie Nation Halloween night.

zombie nation

He was scheduled to perform at the massive Hard Haunted Mansion event in Los Angeles. We had a couple questions lined up which the curious Zombie Nation fan would find interesting, especially questions about his side project tag-team with Tiga known as ZZT. ZZT has brought us such tracks Lower State of Consciousness (which Justice has remixed), as well as the hugely popular The Worm.

One big mystery has always been history behind the ZZT name. As disappointing as it may sound, there’s no funky story behind it. ZZT is simply a combination of the first letters Z of Zombie Nation and T of Tiga. The extra Z is simply there because it sounds good, and doesn’t really stand for anything…. but we still dig the name.

Second, we asked about upcoming tracks. Tiga has been pushing for a ZZT LP sometime in the near future for the Turbo label. In the meantime though, they’ve still been working on new tracks. As a matter of fact, they have two tracks which were nearly completed last week. Around the time that this is published, Zombie Nation and Tiga should be in Montreal mastering the two new ZZT tracks.

Zombie Nation dropped the new tracks this Halloween night. The tracks are not yet completed, but the general gist of it can be seen in the video. Click it below.
