Waking up to this started one helluva throwback thursday. And while I’d like nothing more than to spend a few hours writing up a full review of my experiences at this year’s especially-magnificent Ultra Music Festival, I am bound to the limits of time, energy, and other such raver problems, and as such, can only offer a succinct, bulleted list of my personal highlights from this year. Happy Ultra!

The house has been a-bumpin’ lately. Music is a-go; Miami’s annual Winter Music Conference has officially begun, and thousands of artists have converged on the down-and-dirty metropolis to blow some eardrums. In celebration, presenting the Sync Harder Official Mix, PowerHouse!

While the dubstep genre has the mirage of being a compilation of music-less, comatose-style, throbbing sensations, there are actually quite a few melodic dubsteppers, and alternatives to the static womp-womp for which this category was named. These four, for instance, chose to dub over slow, emotional songs, in a way so smoothly it could still soundtrack your afternoon nap. The first is a new favorite, Adventure Club, who just spun this Foxes remix out a day or two ago. The third, 18-year-old PatrickReza, proved himself a high-grade dubber with his shexy remix of Lana del Rey’s “Video Games”.

Oh yea, and the only group to ever make sax sound remotely sexy, Big Gigantic, will be there too, playing tracks from their new (free!) EP, Nocturnal. =D
Out there things can happen
and frequently do
to people as brainy
and footsy as you.
And then things start to happen,
don’t worry. Don’t stew.
Just go right along.
You’ll start happening too.
THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!
You know that feeling when you’re just out of reach of the remote, the local news is still on from last night, and the only way to get some variety would be to actually get up from your oh-so-comfortable butt-imprinted spot on the sofa, go over to the remote and change the channel, and come alllll the way back? Well take that feeling, multiply it by about a thousand and one, and you’ll have an idea of what it’s like to live in the suburbs of New York, just too far from the metropolis to visit on a whim. And while I’m planning a move imminently, in the meantime, I’ll just have to live vicariously through these fine artists. hey, I’ll save on rent..
