Chromeo Announces North America Tour

Chromeo Tour Flyer

Chromeo has announced cities and dates for their Business Casual Summer Tour. I am not a huge fan of Chromeo, but they do put on a good live show. I am however a pretty big fan of Holy Ghost and Neon Indian who will be joining them for some stops on the tour.

Have a listen to ‘Don’t Turn the Lights On’, the first single from their new album.

Mixeeba Tracklisting

Mixeeba

Mixeeba is a cool little service that’s good for both listeners and publisher of mixtapes. Basically the website will take a tracklist you have copied and pasted, search all of the major online distribution outlets for those tracks and then output a converted tracklist with links to where you can purchase those tracks. This is a great little tool for DJs, music bloggers and music lovers.

Richie Hawtin Using iPad to Perform

A couple months ago with the release of the iPad and several DJ apps I was wondering if any serious DJs would actually be using the iPad to perform. Well, I guess my question has been answered. Here is a video of Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman doing a sound check Movement in Detroit. It’s not clear as to what application he is using, but it certainly makes me curious.

Yours Truly

Yours Truly

I was first turned on to Yours Truly from a video they had done about Delorean. Yours Truly is a group in San Francisco that seem to have their hands in a lot of creative outlets focusing mainly on journalism, video production, photography and graphic design. They have done work with Current TV, Pitchfork, XLR8R, Stereogum, URB and more. I really enjoy their videos that give an intimate look into the lives of bands like Cut Copy, Passion Pit, Delorean, Girls, Nosaj Thing and a bunch more. I could spend all day watching their videos.

Hooray For Earth – Surrounded By Your Friends (Twin Shadow Remix)

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Twin_Shadow

Twin Shadow has been making some waves throughout the internets lately. I recently purchased his new album Forget, and I must say I quite like it. I am also really liking this remix he has done for Hooray For Earth, who I had never heard of before this song, but will surely be checking them out after hearing it.

Muscles – Girl Crazy Go (Muscles Inception Remix)

Monday, October 18th, 2010

musclesyim

The last I heard of Muscles he had quit the music business because of problems with his label Modular. This disappointed me because I love his music. However, I was happy to see that if the rumors were true at the time he has apparently changed his mind. A new EP by Muscles titled Younger & Immature is due out October 29.

Here’s a remix of the first single from the EP ‘Girl Crazy Go’. Check out the music video for the original version here. From the sounds of it Muscles hasn’t lost his musical touch, or his ego.

Sleigh Bells – Run the Heart (Bassnectar Remix)

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Sleigh+Bells+sleighbells1

Music by Bassnectar isn’t something I would normally post here. For the most part I feel his stuff is for dirty rave hippies, and if you read this blog at all you probably know how I feel about the wobbly bass-heavy Dubstep. That being said this remix done of Sleigh Bells‘ song ‘Run the Heart’ is still bass-heavy, but not completely overboard. It also manages to keep a lot of what makes the original track so good.

Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette – Hello

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

dragonette-martin

Chances are if you spend any amount of time on the internet you have heard ‘Hello’ by Martin Solveig featuring the lovely Dragonette (considering it went number one on Hype Machine). But I couldn’t resist posting this super-fun dance-pop masterpiece. It’s basically impossible not to want to dance to this song. I don’t know a lot about Martin Solveig, but from what I have heard and seen so far I am liking his stuff. Purchase the EP with several remixes on Beatport now.

Millionyoung – Local Joke (Neon Indian Cover)

Friday, October 1st, 2010

million-young

Millionyoung, aka Mike Diaz, is shaping up to be one of my favorite artist of 2010. I really love this cover he has done of Neon Indian’s ‘Local Joke’. He adds his own personality to the song, so much that it sounds as though he could have written it. I am looking forward to a full-length album from him.
