video: light asylum – skull fuct

beautiful and powerful video. can’t wait for the full-length.


teams – sentimental (f. indigo bunting)

Teams – Sentimental feat. Indigo Bunting

young kansas city producer/sound sculptor/seapunk indigo bunting, has been increasingly impressing me with his productions since that lady gaga juke rework. now he’s collaborated with l.a. fucked-funk wonderkid teams, and using glowing textures and clipped/pitched robin thicke vocals, they’ve created my favorite track right of the moment. i’m into vox that are chopped beyond the point of discernable words — little breaths, tics, and fragments in between, stripped of everything but their emotional qualities. in this track, the effect is pretty sublime. i could stay in this zone for quite a while.


WEIRD TERRAIN | THIS FRIDAY

The impact which created the Caloris Basin was so powerful that its effects are seen on a global scale. It caused lava eruptions and left a concentric ring over 2 km tall surrounding the impact crater. At the antipode of the Caloris Basin lies a large region of unusual, hilly and furrowed terrain, sometimes called “Weird Terrain”.[source]

this friday is going to be very special.

huerco s, the 20 year old musician/video artist/dj/party promoter from kansas city who we’ve been utterly obsessed with and seen many of you readers feel the same way about, is coming in from kansas city to play his first show.
lf wind (logan takahashi of the illustrious teengirl fantasy) will also be making his live debut with a late night set presenting his solo work for the first time.
slava (who you’ll be hearing a lot more from soon when he drops his next e.p. on 0pn’s software label) will be performing a rare audio + visual set.
innergaze (100% silk) and terekke (l.i.e.s.) both weave some of the best and rawest analog bedroom electronic music in brooklyn.
the dream dj lineup of huerco s., blondes, jan woo, and trance_ebooks will be keeping you dancing all night, along with myself.
taking care to keep this inexpensive and all ages, rule-less and transcendent.
there will be more details that i’d rather leave to surprise.
this friday, feel the magic

DAVE QUAM b2b MASSACOORAMAN

(FADE TO MIND~CHICAGO)
—> check his blog it’s after the end of the world

dave quam, who’s no stranger to weird magic with all the work he’s done shining light on obscure international dance movements and his hometown’s own juke and ghetto house, to concocting eclectic and absurd sound brews himself (and quickly snapped up by the elite fade to mind crew), is coming in for a dj set b2b with his own alter ego. what!?

new black dice: “pigs”

black dice – “pigs”

brilliant as ever. also check the launch page, built by yours truly ;)


tonight @ kent

worth posting for luke‘s genius video flyer alone. aurora (innergaze/mutual dreaming) throws majestic parties.

RSVP/details on facebooks


spells: grimes, asap rocky, bebetunes, evian christ, huerco s. & c v l t s, napolian & oneohtrix, andy stott, burial, lapti, wuf ticket, major lazer & dj sega

grimes – genesis

and what a potent spell it is. our girl grimes has got us dancing in the heavens with this fantasy jam. been waiting for this since first catching it live last year (posted a live version on weird magic facebook several months ago, for those keeping tabs). claire is a sorceress.


asap rocky – pretty flacko (prod. spaceghostpurrp)

spaceghostpurrp is a dark, twisted motherfucker, but i’m alright with that if he can keep funneling that into music this good. this beat is out for blood.


BEBETUNE$$$- ##BLACK AND RED # by B E B E T U N E $

james ferraro continues on his mpc visionquest. this one made instant waves in our pond and beyond. because it’s the niceness.


evian christ – fuck it none of ya’ll don’t rap

this anonymous producer has been causing quite the stir around here. why? because this shit is dope. [hear more - via dummy]


c v l t s – time debt (huerco s. strings of life mix)

i swear i love everything that huerco touches; his music takes me to another world. it’s a spiritual thing, it’s a body thing, it’s a soul thing.


oneohtrix point never – up (napolian remix)

napolian goes deep with this one, just the way we like it.

napolian’s rejoice ep is dropping january 31st on oneohtrix’s software label.

more goods:
“rejoice” (on software’s fader mix)
“my refuge”


andy stott – intermittent

andy stott’s passed me by is one of the most beautiful dark electronic albums i’ve heard since untrue, and this may be the best offering on the record. horrifying but so gorgeous. wow.

speaking of burial… have you heard the clip of his new cut “ashtray wasp”? ooooooh..!


Lapti – Peace by Lapti

Lapti – Livin’ 4 by Lapti

been feeling these productions by moscow’s lapti


major lazer – “original don”

between “pon de floor” and this, can we all agree that major lazer are on some serious next level shit? undoubtedly some of the most amazingly bizarre and forward-thinking club bangers of our time. and skerrit bwoy (now a full-time member/shouter?) tops it all off.

also:
dj sega – original don remix [thx jenna]


wuf ticket – the key (dub mix)

old magic. this was the jam on new years, especially with samandude vocals fluttering atop it.



nye 2012 memories ft. araabmuzik, light asylum, laurel halo, run dmt, dive, trippple nippples @ 285 kent

happy new year. still recovering. thank you for making it magical.
