SebastiAn – Threnody

Posted on 04 January 2010 by shaunt


Our favorite Parisians over at Ed Banger Records have some new material for us. There’s a promo copy of a special compilation of unreleased tracks from artists on the label.

Included on there is a new one from SebastiAn titled Threnody, which proves to be quite a shocker on the record. True fans of SebastiAn’s music may be excited to hear that the track is eleven minutes long. I know I was…. until I listened to it. To tell the truth I feel strangely ambivalent about it. The reason being, there is a TEN MINUTE crescendo buildup of noise before the actual music begins. It’s not until the 11:20 that the track takes a turn and becomes a filthy, glitchy, distored, heavy-beat-driven banger that we’d expect from SebastiAn. Unfortunately, this only lasts about a minute and a half before you realize it’s over.

I don’t know what to think of it. All I can say is that it makes sense that they put Threnody on their “unreleased” compilation rather than on a real cataloged EP. Don’t just take my word for it. Give it a listen:

My fingers are crossed for some proper remixes to soon appear in the blogosphere…


Off topic/on a side note: Photos from Saturday’s house party hosted by the good people of YouTellConcerts will be up tomorrow. It was a blast. Stay tuned.

It’s been a busy week. Busy P hit the decks at discotheque last week. Photos are up.

Click it to see the gallery or check out these photos on our flickr.

Taken August 8th, 2009 at Discotheque at Club 740 in Downtown Los Angeles.

Discotheque happens every week. Tonight, the Trouble & Bass crew take over the venue upstairs, along with some assistance from Boy 8-Bit.
Interested? Take a look at the flyer, perhaps…

Back from Hard Summer Festival…

Back from Hard Summer Festival…

Posted on 09 August 2009 by shaunt

And we’re back from Hard Summer Festival. Yes, at this exact moment Tiga should technically be finishing his set. But that is not the case.

First of all, let me start with a quick (…very quick) review of the evening:
The highlight performance of the night had to have been Busy P’s kick-off set on the main stage. Even he was shocked at how huge of a turnout he had at 8PM. Crystal Castles followed with an.. uh… interesting set laced with a touch of intentional audio feedback and static. That’s when it got crazy. Douchebag raver kids started jumping off the second level into the pit. Even after countless warnings this shit continued until the fire marshall decided to boot everyone out. It wasn’t official until the special tactics unit of the LAPD made an appearance. What an evening it was indeed.

Honestly though, i have to hand it to the HARD people for putting on such a [potentially] epic event. The production and lighting (especially downstairs in the underground) was absolutely stunning. It’s so unfortunate these kids did what they did at the expense of the crowd at large. Oh well. Shit happens… Either way, we will have our photos up (at least the ones we managed to snag in the short period of time) probably tomorrow. HARD Summer photos are now up HERE.

A clip from Busy P’s blog:
I  am so sorry for what happened last night at HARD in L.A Don’t really know what went wrong, but all i know is that the amazing crowd was ready to party, so do i. I feel lucky to have been the only DJ to perform that night, i ended up my set with Beastie Boys “Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” just before Crystal Castles short live show, what a weird sign! The rest of the line up was insane, Tiga, A-Trak, Chromeo, Crookes… were all ready to rumble too.
Let’s hope L.A will get another massive event like this soon.

Don’t be discouraged. I suppose it’s not a good time to bring it up right now, but stay tuned for info about HARD Haunted Mansion as it will not disappoint. The party will go on.

A message from the good people at HARD:
We are terribly sorry. LAFD and Inglewood PD made the decision to shut down the event tonight. There are many questions to answer; rest assured you will be receiving your refunds. Please check back soon for more details. The show must go on…


For release immediately… LOS ANGELES — HARD Haunted Mansion lineup in Los Angeles – October 31st, 2009. ….

Justice (DJ Set), Basement Jaxx (DJ Set), Deadmau5, 2ManyDJS, Crookers, Major Lazer, A-Trak, Modeselektor, Buraka Som Sistema, Zombie Nation, Steve Aoki, Destructo, Don Rimini, Shinichi Osawa, Aeroplane, Mixhell, Classixx, Staccato,  and Paparazzi.
