A week ago today, Madison Square Garden opened its doors late and turned into the United States’ largest nightclub for the night. The special occasion was its first-ever techno concert — a firsttime visit from the world-famous trifecta DJs of Swedish House Mafia, Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, and Steve Angello. “Unexpectedly”, the 15,000 tickets sold were gone within 9 minutes of a presale made available only to Facebook fans of the group, a new record for Madison Square Garden events. I could not believe my luck in being able to attend this event… Tremendous music, tremendous lights, tremendous love.

While I’ve come to understand that Minnesota, aka Christian Bauhofer, will just always make sick originals and hoppin’ remixes, it takes something extra to make a mashup that flows smoothly and doesn’t get annoying after a while. Needless to say, he did it rather flawlessly; let it play a few seconds, then let this gorgeous Radiohead/Dorrough mashup sweep you off your feet.

♬ Radiohead vs. Dorrough – Ice Cream In Its Right Place (Minnesota Mash-Up)

I don’t even care for rap all that much. How do you do it, sir? Here, get some more Minnesota in you: an oldie but a goodie, a remastering of Sander van Doorn’s remix of The xx’s “Intro”:

♬ Sander van Doorn – XX Booty (Minnesota Remix)

Still wanting more? Try his Mamas & the Papas remix posted at my other fave home-blog, JamzNotJelly.com. You’re welcome :)

It’s opener there
in the wide open air.

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.

OH!
THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!

OOF. I dunno who thought Mondays were the worst; to me it’s always been Wednesdays, that “hump day” of the week, where you’re exhausted but still have 48 hours ahead of you to fight through. Some of us are in finals, some of us are at our final wits, and all of us can’t wait for it to finally be over and given vacationary leave. But while stuck in the meantime, pent up working to meet deadlines, striving for that end-of-year bonus, writing dissertations, whatever the case… as a favorite cuz of mine recently put it, “the proverbial fecal matter has come into contact with an oscillating blade”. So everybody, stop for 30 seconds, and take a deeeeeeep breath. Then hit play on these sweet de-stressing funk remixes! Good luckkkk!

Pogo + Human Rights Day = World Smiling

♬ Pogo & U.N. – Celebrate Human Rights

In all the hustle and bustle, I completely forgot the draft I’d started for this post. The United Nations declared December 10th Human Rights Day (without realizing it was already a favorite holiday — my friend DiDi’s birthday!!), and Pogo, aka Nick Bertke, amazing kid remixer from down-undah, put together this adorable collage of our inherent rights.

Pogo’s remixes are unique in that he takes short, nearly indistinguishable audio samples of movies, television shows, or, as in this case, real-life video, and adds a simple, solid backbeat to create a beautifully refreshing look back at what we’ve created and captured on film. An entirely unique type of music, he even enjoyed success touring (here in NYC at the Highline Ballroom earlier this year!)…until being arrested, banned, and deported for improper visa filing…oops! Regardless, boy’s talented as heck and the jailtime was only a slight slow-down in his continually amazing creative flow. Here are a few more of my favorite tunes!
