Theo Parrish “Slices DVD Feature”

I remember seeing Theo Parrish in Montreal a few years ago, closing up Mutek (an “International Festival Of Digital Creativity And Electronic Music”) with a spectacular all-across-the-board vinyl set.

Four Tet “Conference of the Birds” Mix

It’s been a few weeks since Four Tet (Keiran Hebdan) released his new mix of spaced-out jams and judging the amount of plays on Soundcloud, I’m assuming most of you have already heard it. Don’t feel bad if you haven’t though; it’s hard to keep up-to-the-minute in this day and …

Ever wonder where the idea of beatmatching and mixing songs together first came from? How about ye ol’ birth of the 12” record? Any takes on what started same sex liberation on the dance floor? Last night I watched BBC’s documentary The Joy Of Disco which provided a very basic …

Future Classic: Karizma “Collection 1999 – 2011”

Karizma seems to be perpetually busy, putting out both beats and mixes on his Soundcloud accounts (for those who didn’t know, his alter-ego is Kaytronik). Unlike a lot of musicians out there today, showcasing a steady accumulation of work doesn’t make for a diluted collection. That is one of the …

I just couldn’t wait any longer to share this with you. I first heard of Ade Mango Henderson Mainor (better known as Mr. De’) when a friend told me he got one of his tracks polished up by this super-talented veteran producer from Detroit. Not long after, I was made …

Rilly Guilty “Golden Sounds Volume #4”

Let’s face it, we all know a handful of good DJs out there, but how many of them are consistent? How many of them keep you interested every single time? How many of them habitually play you what you want to hear? No matter how many times I see or …
