Good morning! It’s freezing outside and I’m very comfortable sipping my cup of coffee as I write this. I have a lot of great news today to get you informed for the weekend. The stories include the SnowGlobe Music Festival, how David Guetta does Ibiza, a Joker album review, a Seth Troxler interview, and the Red Bull Elektropedia Awards 2011.
The San Francisco based Chris Harnett & David Carvalho aka White Noize are back at it again with more pounding pounding… DISCO music? The veteran Dj duo have just released their next EP on DJ Dan’s InStereo Recordings called WEEKEND IN CALIFORNIA, featuring “Honey Love” and “Big Bright Lights.” WhiteNoize are known for digging up old disco classics and reviving them with club electro, fidget, and tech-house body parts. Their “big room disco” sounds have earned them top rankings on Beatport several times, not to mention the support of favorites Duck Sauce, DJ Dan, Donald Glaude, TJR, Stonebridge, Mustard Pimp, Treasure Fingers, and Umek (just to name a few.) These tracks are serious must haves for any DJs club sets, especially all you funky steppers out there. Check out the EP below, as well as the upcoming “Turn This Mutha Out” and a FREE download of their Cobra Starship Remix!

As summer chugs along and the dog days approach the temperature only continues to rise out here on the Best Coast. Expect a massive heat wave to hit this Thursday though as the mad Belgian scientists known as Mumbai Science descend upon the Mile High City to start their mini 2011 Summer Tour that will see them lighting up clubs from the Rockies to the Bay to the Border as they drop festival firestarters like ‘Ancova‘ & ‘Gold‘ in intimate venues like our very own Versus (August 4th!)
Having the chance to see this rising act, that now routinely plays for 1000s, in relatively small venues is an experience and opportunity you probably won’t have again as their ascent to stardom continues, so make sure you get yo’ tickets for one of these 7 gigs while you can! Along the way they’ll be getting support from longtime GDD™ backed Canadian John Roman, Aussie insane-asylum-escapees Bareback DJ’s, the lovely Brazzabelle, our very own ///BONES and various local talent in each city. More details including dates and ticketing links (and some tunes) after the jump! Oh and if you don’t remember our interview/mix with Mumbai, peep it over here!

All my best to you and the Bay,
The Tipper Sound Experience, along with the incredible NeXuS Funktion-One Soundsystem, will be descending on San Francisco next Friday, July 8th. The man behind the experience, Dave Tipper, draws from his classical training to create a diverse pallet of music served for your listening indulgence. He is most widely known for his expertise in Breaks, specifically his own unique, psychedelic style of mixing organic sounds with electronic beats, but he also maintains variety in his sets with downtempo and Hip-Hop. Tipper’s interest in sound production has led to creation of this show, which is said to be “an immersive sound environment that transforms the dance floor into an ethereal field of holographic sound”.
