Steal From the Rich and… Steal From the Rich Again

I‘m pretty sure Discovery needs to ditch the outdated “Man vs. Wild” series and replace it with a more modern one, perhaps featuring this kid:

According to Time, the guy’s robbed more than 100 homes, many of which belong to exceptionally wealthy people, stolen multiple cars, boats, and most recently, three (count ’em) three airplanes, all of which he learned to pilot by purchasing a flying manual on the internet using a victim’s computer and a stolen credit card. Oh, and did I mention he lives in the woods? Some people call the kid Robin Hood. Others call him bored. But all I can tell you is that the balls I thought I had, turned out to be a figment of my imagination.

Thanks to Skeet for digging this one up.

Dim Mak Presents: Everything You Thought You Couldn’t Have

I must say it’s been quite some time since we’ve heard almost anything from the Ed Banger crew. I have this strange inkling that Justice might well have been struck with the misfortune of sailing off the edge of the earth in their gallant search for a proverbial new world, and even the immovable, longtime members seem to be shying the news as of late. But hush children, I assure you, there’s no need to worry; Though it may seem as though our beloved team of groundbreaking artists have hidden themselves away in their laboratories, you’ve simply found yourself at the mercy of a well kept secret. See, our good friends over at Dim Mak have (incase you failed to notice the exclusive appearance of Mr. Pedro Winter himself only a month ago) all the while been supplying LA’s truest disco fans with a constant stream of awe inspiring dj sets and sweaty, sweaty parties (think underground railroad), and, though it saddens me to say it, you’ve been missing out!

Fortunately, you shan’t be left in the dark yet again, seeing as Dim Mak has officially gone all out on their upcoming Avalon-strocity of a dance party and has managed (by means of some ridiculous supernatural power) to summon the dj Feadz to make Los Angeles sparkle upon the night of the 12th of September. (That means you’ve got a little over a week to go ahead and cancel all your appointments and such. Don’t worry, you didn’t really need to go to them anyway) Considering a live Feadz headliner has become somewhat of a rarity since the inception of Uffie, it goes without saying that this isn’t something you’re going to want to miss. And as if that’s not enough for your metaphorically Irish electro tolerance, I suggest you take a look at the rest of the lineup. We’ve got Kid Cudi (I’m sure you’ve heard Crookers‘ Embrace the Martian?), Paparazzi, Them Jeans (If you’re unfamiliar, you must live in a cave), and the notorious Hyphy Crunk, all waiting to help you lace up your dancing shoes. Sure, a couple of those names do indeed frequent LA, however, having them all to yourself together in one night is pushing insanity.

For those of you who’re finding yourselves a tad confused, here’s a couple tasters to get your blood running hot. I trust the next couple minutes shall ensure that I’ll be seeing you there.

A Few Fancy Updates

Chromeo


Just a little heads up for those of you that frequently find yourselves engaged in spontaneous dance-offs, break-battles, and foot fights, if you do somehow make it through tomorrow without taking a bit of time off to listen to Chromeo‘s latest audio upgrade, you could be at a significantly higher risk for an embarrassing loss: The re-release, cleverly titled, “Fancier Footwork”, will not only include the entire slightly less fancy album, as well as a whole bunch of other goodies that may well prove useful, including a series of five music videos (Fancy Footwork, Bonafied Lovin’, Tenderoni, Needy Girl, and (oh god yes! (Hey wait I just put parentheses inside parentheses…)) DJ Mehdi‘s catchy, Chromeo-enhanced I Am Somebody), nine remixes, and a mini, four-song greatest hits section. Needless, to say, knowingly skipping out would be nothing short of self sabotage, and you’re just not one to act in such silliness, right? Here’s a few of the tracks that you’ll certainly be hearing again shortly…

JFK and Kid Sister


And just as a bit of a toss in, in case you’ve got a heavier dj set coming up soon, or if you just happen to be one of those guys that lives for the sweaty electro kickers, you might check out JFK of MSTRKRFT‘s recently released remix of Kid Sister‘s, “Control.” The mix is quite possibly one of the loudest, most obnoxious and beautifully impatient floor shakers I’ve heard in quite some time. And no need to worry about playing it out; You can always count on MSTRKRFT‘s tastefully polished production to hold everything together. Long live the king.

Kid Sister – Control (JFK remix)

Bored on a Saturday Night?

Just thought I’d toss out a little info for those of you that have been sitting at your computer, double clicking the same four tracks in iTunes for far too long: If you’re down to get hard and heavy, and if your ears have had way too much time to heal since their last good bleed, you might want to hop in the old shaggin’ wagon, shell out the five bucks a gallon to fill her up, and head down into LA to check out tonight’s Blow Up LA event. The lovable threesome, Royal Rumble (the prodigy behind the infamous Kid Sister – Damn Girl remix), shall be headlining, and will be preceded by several other Los Angeles tableists, all of which are more than noteworthy. (Did you check out LAZRtag’s “Don’t Stop the Music” remix covered in the previous post? *sees the look of disbelief on your face* Yes, my friend, they will be there, and they will knock your funky little hipster socks off.)

Here’s the full lineup:

Admission’s only five bucks if you check out the Blow Up LA site and send an email for a guest list request, however, at this short notice, I can’t guarantee that you’ll still make it on. But don’t fret! Even if you don’t, you’ll only pay ten bucks, which, in a better light, means that all you have to do is put two less gallons of gas in your car and drive at the incredibly fuel efficient speed of 45mph on the trip down to make up the difference. Sounds like an offer that can’t be beat…

And in case you’re somehow still unfamiliar with the by-now-notorious Royal Rumble, here’s a couple appetizers that’ll help you lace up the disco shoes:

Soulwax – Miserable Girl (Royal Rumble edit)

Beetroots Remix bootlegs have officially surfaced


Always hate to post twice on the same topic, but you have to take a look at the circumstances: Bootlegs (Yes, unfortunately these are only some very well done rips.) of two of the most anticipated remixes of this year have finally shown up and are causing a bit of commotion. Were they worth the wait? You bet. Guess who’s done it again:
MSTRKRFT – Bounce (The Bloody Beetroots Remix)

And this next one’s a little ambiguous. I personally was under the impression that it was The Bloody Beetroots that had remixed Busy P‘s latest, but I’m now hearing word that it might have been Crookers? I guess there’s nothing we can do but wait… and listen of course.
