Some Quick Bang Gang Before the Real Deal

So I was planning on posting on Bang Gang DJ's by the end of the week BUT yesterday they released a ridiculously amazing remix of Kicking and Screaming by the Presets which I wanted to share with y'all.

Wallpaper, Ya Dig?

So I had the distinct privilege of seeing Wallpaper perform twice during their jaunt around the city. The duo of Arjun Singh (drums) and Ricky Reed (vox and keyboard) hail from the beloved city of Oakland, California. You may remember Oakland for blessing us with such gems as Scraper Bikes and Keak da Sneak.

So take Chromeo, add a bunch of Pfunkt, little bit o' Biggie and some general ridiculousness and you have birthed a stellar brainchild which makes you want to hump inanimate objects. Wallpaper, thankfully, will be back in New York this week for CMJ - likely wearing some sort of gold lame and making people dance. You should definately try to get to the shows. I can safely say that my evenings at Wallpaper shows have been some of the most amusing I've had in NEw York - and if you're lucky, you might have Mr. Reed grinding all up on you by the end of the night.

Dates Are:
10/21 Santos Party House 11.15 pm
10/23 205 Club 11.30 pm
10/23 Webster Hall 1.30 am
10/24 Le Royale 12.00 am

Sidenote: Congrats to the band who recently won the SF Weekly Music Awards for Best Electronic Act. Their acceptance speech can be found here

Polytechnic Not Polyphonic Spree please

Friday night I was able to go see the British band
Polytechnic at the mercury lounge on friday whom I discovered at Camden Crawl this year. I actually bought their album right away after hearing them and... thats a rarity. I was expecting it to be pretty empty since no one seems to know who they are, and I was right. It's ok because it seemed like they were doing a private show for just me. We started talking to Dylan the guitarist/lead singer and they were really chill guys. We tried to meet up at a few parties during the weekend, but it didn't seem to happen. Nevertheless, you all missed out bc they are good and you were most likely not there and I believe you can dance to their tunes. If you can't, then you are not fun.

A Health-y Helping

Thursday night and i'm exhausted for basically no reason and watching Casper for memories sake (and since its on and everything else on TV sucks balls and I'm actually a retarded 10 years old girl). Nevertheless this band, Health has caught my attention. They seem to be gaining much recent popularity and I say rightfully so. They are pretty much effectively constructed noise-rock or whatnot, but then have become popular in the dance world. Everyone seems to be remixing their shit and it sounds good! There is even a myspace page, Disco//Health that simply just consists of remixes of their tunessss. Pretty sweet. If my band, Awkward Ponies, ever become famous (and we will considering all we have is a completely original concept and no actual music composition but i think me on the synthesizer/keyboard should be enough) I want a remix page made. Remember that. And make it sassy. Thanks.

Glitter Pills - Health

Triceratops - Health

Crimewaves - Health vs Crystal Castles
Tabloid Sores - Health (Nosaj Thing Remix)

Little ol'me is opening. Check it out.

You know what it is and you love it. Murdercola 3 is kickin' it this Friday, November 16th, with louder beats and bangers than your annoying roommate who listens to White Snake too much and your grandma's phonograph combined.

Attention all boys and girls: dance.

More Foals - A Bit Obsessed

I love those bands that you just do not get sick of for some reason. It could also be I try to hold onto my London memories for as long as I can. Because honestly, the states have yet compared to it by the slightest bit (at least for me). I think to me it's mostly the energy at clubs or concerts. Lets stop the pretentiousness and do whatever the fuck our bodies tell us to do and that is dance your heart out. It doesn't matter how dumb you look. I'm pretty positive I always look like an idiot, but thats the fun it. Continuing along, I am still loving the Foals. They just released their video for Balloons and it got me excited. I don't really understand the 20's flapper girl business going on, but I guess it works even though they creep me out.

A Decent But Incredibly Poorly Mixed - Mix

So I am trying to consider myself a fledgling dj. I decided to make the blogs first mix which features some of the artists mentioned in recent days. Try to ignore the godawful transitions. At least everything is beatmatched.

Tracklist is as follows:

DatA - Aerius Light
Klaxons - As Above, So Below (Justice Rmx)
Grafton Primary - I Can Cook (Miami Horror Rmx)
Calvin Harris - Merrymaking at My Place (Deadmau5 Rmx)
Partyshank - Penis vs. Vagina Rmx
Steed Lord -Feel The Heat
Digitalism - Idealistic (Shinichi Osawa Rmx)
Rich Boy - Throw Some D's On It (Estaw Rmx)
Russ Chimes - She's Got the Heat
MSTRKRFT / Beyonce - Lose My Easy Love (Gingy Mashup)
Hot Chip - Coulours (Fred Falke Rmx)

Find this mix HERE

I'm going to try to post mixes like this more frequently. If you have requests of stuff you'd like to have included, please let me know. Hopefully the dj craftsmanship will improve as well.

We're also on myspace now
Tell all of your friends and friend us. Like woah.

Colorado Lovin

My friend introduced me to Pictureplane from Colorado (hence the name of the post) because he is a bit obsessed with him. I've grown to really like him as well. Surprised that he's not bigger than he is now. He's did a remix of crystal castles, but his own stuff is real tight. I get to listen to it at work and start aching to dance, but then don't want to look like a complete idiot in doing so. Maybe I could in my "office space" along with my empty ikea-esque cubicle compartments. Ok. It's decided. I'm going to do it. I'll probably get a raise.

air waves (pictureplane remix) - crystal castles
day glowwed - pictureplane
