thx to everyone who came out friday, s!ck, spencers gifs and to all the amazingly talented performers. these people really understand modern dance music, and we’ve got recordings to prove it. jam live guest mixes from all the artists below, with photos from the night after the jump or on facebook.
the next one gonna be even crazier .. stay tuned for announcements>>>
young kansas city producer/sound sculptor/seapunkindigo 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.
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…
weird magic is teaming up with spencer’s gifs and s!ck to bring a bunch of our favorite djs and minds under one roof. the theme on this night is sound technicians who are serious about a well-chosen and executed dj set, and pushing dancefloor/club music into the future via an eclectic brew of sounds and far-reaching inspiration.
rsvp on facebook, check tracks and mixes from all the performers below, with plenty more to explore beyond this page.
topping off a stacked dj bill is hollagramz (also nostrangers to weird magic) are coming in from denver to play their first new york show ever, which we’re honored to present after their killer sets at weird magic’s sxsw 2011 showcases — one of the best, most underrated production duos right now. have a listen:
dave quam, who’s nostranger 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!?
and what a potent spell it is. ourgirl 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.
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.
