Just finished listening to this mix and wanted to share it with you all. A blend of electronic ambient sounds and sculptures from the past mixed with a few rare treats for the archive-type folks like myself, I think there’s something for everyone here.





SPAREPARTS – LIVE @ LAND OF NOD EXPERIMENT 07.25.2010

3 08 2010

I had the pleasure of playing at this festival combining art and music together

and it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever played… so far. It

also was a 10am set, so very chill with some low bass hits, hearbeat thumps, samples

galore and of course various ambient soundscapes. I was so excited to bring the ole’

reel to reel out for this as it was an introduction of the digital technologies (I mostly

use a DJ Controller)

with old-school analog. I was fortunate enough to record my set  and wanted to

share it with everyone here.

Movements of Happiness

1 08 2010

Jon has posted a few of his sets from percussionlab on the blog earlier (https://muzikigan.wordpress.com/2010/05/13/mixes-mixes-whos-got-the-button/). I thought I’d try my hand at playing and recording a dj set. It comes in at just under an hour, with a mix of dancy stuff, electro-indie and other related joyous musical nuggets.

ambient in june

3 07 2010


Just finished a new mix before the big event LandofNodExperiment at the end of the month. if you still need tickets, Underground Sounds in Ann Arbor, CK Barrymores in Jackson, Record Time in Roseville, and Detroit Threads in Hamtramck all have them for a cheaper price until the even t when they go up at the gate.

Feel free to download the mix below. I really worked hard on this one. I’ve been compiling these ambient mixes together for folks who want to get ‘lost in the wires’ or need something to disappear into a book with their headphones on. Personally I recommend the latter.

meditate & enjoy!





Daft Punk – Remix After All

28 06 2010

Daft Punk’s phenomenal album, Homework was one of the seminal techno albums that really pushed me into all things electronic back in the day. Every single track is a burner. I have so many memories when we used to rock out to these jams

They since have slowly developed their sound and morphed into a live force to be reckoned with whether DJing or putting together a full Live PA show for big festivals. I have a few remixes for all you mixheads out there to check out.

Daft Punk – Emotion (Werewolf By Night Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – On Off (The Noizy Kidz Daft Zapping Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – Technologic (Kids At The Bar Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – Television Rules The Nation (Dirty Disco Youth Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – The Brainwasher (Melee Beats Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – Remixes After All rar.

cheers.





HOLY GHOST!

These NY folks have been in my DJ arsenal for a little over a year now and I still haven’t blogged it yet? Damn. Well. I have been getting into this indie rock with dance sensibilities genre (LCD SOUNDSYSTEM anyone?) for awhile and there are a number of groups doing a really good job at moving this sound forward. I am especially proud of HOLY GHOST! for always doing something different.

Heres a mixtape I have been really gettin down with.

HOLYGHOST! REMIXTAPE VOL 1

and their site has more actions like this too!





DEMF (aka Movement 2010): Detroit Electronic Music Festival

7 06 2010

Last weekend (Memorial Day Weekend), two of us bloggers here went to all three days of DEMF, and had a blast. It was crazy sweet, seeing some sick acts from classic techno to dubstep and downtempo. A couple highlights:

First and foremost, Pretty Lights brought down the house. Monday evening in general was just out of control amazing on the Red Bull stage, but my favorite by far was Pretty Lights. They did a live set with a guy mixing and a live drummer. They put together music at a little slower of bpm, but with huge downbeats, sweet samples, and great rises and falls. Within seconds of arriving on stage, the place was packed to the gills, superhot, and heaving. Arms went in the air, rocking the beat. This group does a sensational live show. Do not miss. One song they played was:

Pretty Lights – Total Fascination

Another favorite was A-trak, who played a dj set on Saturday. He’s got a real hip-hop vibe, and actually toured with Kanye West as his dj. The whole show had some sweet energy, and he was clearly having a blast doing it. The best piece of the show was a remix of Daft Punk’s Robot Rock, with an inserted sample saying “Barbra Streisand”. I wish I could that recording. And my favorite track by him (and how I heard of him in the first place) was his remix of Heads Will Roll by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It is awesome. Unfortunately I only heard from over by the porta-potties.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-trak remix)

Great shows!!!
