35,000 people. 135 DJs. With just over a week ’til the start of the massive fifth-year anniversary of Electric Zoo on Randalls Island off Manhattan, I thought I’d share some of my most-anticipated acts to be seen this year…

♬ Passion Pit – Take A Walk

Though the trek is a bit far for us New Yorkers, I’m really kicking myself for not listening to my peers when they insisted I check out Michigan’s Electric Forest Festival this year — especially since this awesome recap vid dropped on the first of the month. The full-of-smiles video features a perfect song selection for the outdoorsy, lakeside festival of indie-meets-EDM, and showcases many of the sweeeeet improvements made since 2012’s Forest: a much grander central meeting area (aka Sherwood Court), cooler lighting, and easier accessibility to the lakes and natural features of the property, for starters.

Since we were not there for this year’s Electric Forest, this page will serve up the latest updates on EF 2014. Hope to see you in the forest!

repeat the past

13-08-11 verve first ladies

There’s no other way to say it: this album is insanely good. When Verve Records isn’t busy producing jazz albums by some of the greatest musicians in history, they shuffle through the EDM pileup to produce “Verve Remixed” — compilation albums of their famous classics reinterpreted by the world’s best DJs — always to fantastic results. I purchased (yes, purchased) their box set of Volumes 1-4 (iTunes) but this latest collection, “The First Ladies” (iTunes), tops the rest. Ella Fitz remixed by Maya Jane Coles? Dinah Washington meets DJ Carnage??? Nina Simone vs. Zed’s Dead?!?! Unreal. Check out my favorite track, remixed by the on-fire Flume, below, then go spend $10 and gift yourself the greatest week of music you’ve had in a while.

★ Marlena Shaw – Woman Of The Ghetto (Flume’s Jackin’ House
Mix)

13-07-24 tim deluxe

Robert Frost is a great American poet, known for artistically depicting life in New England. His work won him a Pulitzer Prize, but his personal life was filled with grief and loss. Frost wrote “Choose Something Like a Star” in 1943. The main themes of the poem include a perspective on humanity’s need for reassurance and isolation of individuals. The poem is written in iambic tetrameter and is often compared to “Bright Star” by John Keats.

Tim Deluxe = Timothy Andrew Liken, a UK-based DJ and producer. You might remember Mr. Deluxe from “It Just Won’t Do”; but I prefer “We All Love Sax” and “Let the Beats Roll”.

♬ Tim Deluxe – Choose Something Like A Star (Poem by Robert Frost)

The original mix of “Choose Something Like a Star” comes from the album, “The Little Ginger Club Kid”, published in 2004. Of course there are other versions, but this is the one I like best. It is one of those songs good for everything; relaxing, partying, exercising, blunt ride, kissing, et

♬ Autoerotique – Asphyxiation (Original Mix)

Tripped upon this song on another blog, but wasn’t fulfilled ’til I’d seen THIS. And have since replayed for just about any male (and some female) friends I hang with… DAMN GOOD!
