Is this a joke? Jonsi, Kjartan Holm, and Sigrun Jonsdottir, the trip behind Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros, have taken up DJing under the name Triple Nipple. They’ve played a set for Boiler Room and you can now hear how well they fare in the streaming DJ mix of Baltimore club and big-room electro house […]
I just can’t get enough of French turntable group C2C’s song (and accompanying video) Happy!The video is directed by the talented Wendy Morgan, who has previously brought us clips like Gnarls Barkley’s Going On and Janelle Monae’s Tightrope (you can tell that Ms Morgan likes a good dance!)
More often than not, a “live” electronic show translates into a lifeless DJ playing Ableton off a laptop. It doesn’t seem like the best fit for music that’s so visceral and emotive. Martyn – an electronic musician based in the “sleepy DC suburbs” – found a way to visualize the music he’s created for his forthcoming album. He teamed […]
Forget white labelling, this is one DJ who isn’t afraid to break down the breakdown. DJ Numark understands the need for audiences to get behind the music and see how the sounds are constructed. He takes musical risks and they pay off big time. Now show some respect to the Monkey!
Darkness is the first single from a new project I’ve started with Matt Van Schie from Australian band Van She. We met in Parisian club The Social Club in 2010 where we were both DJing. We hit it off and started sending tracks to each other, getting to know each other. Then Matt was working […]
Antony Micallef did the artwork for volumes 2 and 3 of my DJ mix compilation series Disco Circus. He’s my favourite artist, and now a close friend. I find his art contemporary, yet classic, and he paints with such detail that I can stare at his art for hours
When wanting to hear new and inspiring electronic music, you should look no further than the new record label Bromance. Combining music and art, music and culture, and people through music, the label was started in November 2011 by ‘DJ to the DJ’s – Brodinski. It’s been a hectic year, with Bromance just dropping their […]
My little brother just happens to be one of the most diverse and talented DJs on the planet. He has several weeklies in St. Louis, puts out amazing mixtapes, is the official DJ for Midwest hero, Steddy P, and has even opened up for Snoop Dogg. Make sure you get his latest, greatest, free funk mix, Soul Session: Live From Artopia.
DJ Soulscape is a South Korean DJ who likes to appropriately reference his name by mixing in a lot of “soul” with his beats. I’ve even heard a song that mixes in the older genre of ‘Korean Trot’, which I’ve only heard whilst riding in Korean taxi cabs. I also once heard a sexy 30 […]
As a member of LA’s legendary Root Down crew, DJ Expo is always keepin’ the true Funk alive. He hosts the Motown On Monday (MOM) Night weekly at The Short Stop and released the must-have ‘Devil’s Pie: Motown Tribute’ Mix Album, which you should immediately get.
Raw power! Pure musical destruction! This dude is one of the very best live DJs around right now, devastating crowds with his insane breaks and beats. And he’s also proven himself as a formidable producer/arranger with his brand new full-length studio release ‘Breakthrough’. Make sure you grab a copy.
Best known for his remixes (Kaskade’s Turn It Down, Ceelo Green’s Fuck You), this Atlanta-based DJ is currently working on his debut album. With a nom-de-stage taken from an NES game, and samples from the Smashing Pumpkins and The Refused, the inspiration is ecclectic, while the sound remains firmly rooted in the indie-electro genre.
Illustrator and dublab DJ, Justin McNulty, aka Kutmah, was recently deported from his homeland of the United States to Great Britain. His Scottish father and Egyptian mother moved to the US when Kutmah was 12, but their son was never naturalized. So after keeping Kutmah in detention for more than two months in 2010, US immigration authorities sent him back ‘home’ to England, even though Kutmah considers himself a Los Angeles native.
