Andrés, Ejeca, and More Remix Romanthony’s “Ministry of Love” on New 12’s

It’s safe to say that nearly every fan of dance music has a memory associated with the voice and music of Romanthony (pictured above), whose talents were notably enlisted onDaft Punk‘s colossal hit “One More Time.” Prior to his work with the famed French duo, however, Romanthony (a.k.a. Anthony Moore) had already achieved wide recognition with a string of successful solo releases in the early- and mid-’90s. Before his tragic passing last month, Romanthony had finalized plans to issue a series of remixes for his 1995 classic“Ministry of Love,” and now, those tracks are set for release next week. Including productions from the likes of Detroit veteran Andrés, UK up-and-comer Ejeca, Berlin’sAndre Crom, and Glasgow Underground boss Kevin McKayMinistry of Love 2013 will be available as two three-track 12″s on June 17 via Glasgow Underground. Before then, the artwork and tracklist for each record can be found below.

Watch a short documentary about the Los Angeles beat scene, Featuring Daedelus and Co.fee

Swot up on the land of Brainfeeder and Low End Theory in a 10-minute documentary.

The Not A Beat, Not A Scene mini-doc includes contributions from an assortment of better (and lesser) known artists operating at the heart of L.A.’s beat scene. The star is dapper elder statesman Daedelus, who natters intelligently about the scene’s tentative first steps. Co. Fee, Free The Robots, Juj and Sir Froderick are among the other contributors. Discussions encompass the explosion of Low End Theory, L.A.’s status as the epicentre of psychedelic beats, and the “lackadaisical stoner aspect” of the city.

Las Vegas loves Techno at EDC afterparties 

Las Vegas has certainly turned into a domestic hotbed for EDM over the last few years, with massive clubs and outrageous residencies popping up all over the place. Hakkasan (MGM Grand Hotel’s five level club) alone has Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke as residents.

Although the EDM scene in Sin City is flourishing, there has been a noticeable lack of underground talent…until now.

As part of Electric Daisy Carnival week in Las Vegas, LAVO and Marquee, will host an impressive ensemble of underground acts.

The party series, which is being branded by Insomniac as ‘Las Vegas <3’s Techno’, will feature five parties with quality bookings like Claude Von Stroke, Justin Martin, Cajmere, Carl Cox, John Digweed, Sasha, Dubfire and Umek all playing.

Are these bookings a sign that the underground sound has finally penetrated the glitzy Vegas crowd?

See below for all dates and information and purchase tickets for the gigs here.

June 20: Dirtybird Presents: Claude VonStroke, Cajmere, Justin Martin & J Phlip at Lavo
June 21: Carl Cox at Lavo
June 22: John Digweed Bedrock Party at Lavo
June 23: Sasha & Dubfire at Lavo
June 24: UMEK & Mark Knight at Marquee Dayclub
