The not-so-secret collaborative effort between Skrillex and Boys Noize, Dog Blood, was announced only a few months ago to large applaud. Always cool when two real ground-breakers of an industry come together to create something new, especially when they call it something as cool as DOG BLOOD.
Their new music video for the single “New Order” is just as twisted and chaotic as the track itself, featuring a dude tripping so hard he becomes a literal and figurative space cadet (following with the theme of the EP artwork…).
Another Wednesday brings another installment of our guest mix series, and today we feature our favorite Australian living in Los Angeles, Craig Williams. A master in the studio, Craig astonishes me with his clean productions and remixes, even when he shows me them through an iPod in his Prius Craig has included a healthy helping of his own originals and remixes in this mix topped with some tracks from BNR, Turbo, and Bromance providing for a bouncy Techno soundtrack to your life for the next 72 minutes. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, watch out for this dude. √+
Hardened by years touring the world as half of pseudo-kitsch acid-electro force Light Year, and now gone solo, Jensen Interceptor is unleashing the raw, elastic-funk techno of his dreams upon the world.
With the split of Light Year and end to the Bang Gang era, Jensen Interceptor has dug his claws deep into the skin of techno, letting us know he will still prevail. Riding on the wings of respected labels Twin Turbo and Motorik, Jensen has released his newest EP INTERCEPTION – a colossal (4) track ride through club techno and onto the deeper side of things.

With the soon to be full length release from the Russian juggernaut Proxy on Dim Mak Records, the first remix ep for the single “Shut Up!” has recently surfaced. Of all that we’re entered, standing atop the heap come from bass master John Roman, Belgian phenom-duo Sound Of Stereo, and techno young guns VCO (my personal favorite). Both take what already was a massive track in its own and flip their motives into a wall of noise. Too much to fathom? Find out for yourself which one is your favorite (including proper giveaway remixes from Ming and Tenderlions)!
I’ll be the first to admit I’m usually hesitant about an artists first release. I cling to the familiar, like all humans with a subconscious mind do. However, newcomer to the scene and LA local Mad Owl froze over (terrible pun) any hesitance I may have with his new track Glacier, out now on Le Castle Vania’s label, Always Never.
I’m probably going to get a lot of shit for this one. So just as a precautionary disclaimer, I’m not really trying to encompass the infinite realm of what defines “acid” in both musical and personal experience senses of the term. So before you get your panties in a bunch that Phuture isn’t on here or your favorite Plastikman track is missing or one of these doesn’t have an “acid bassline,” just know that I am pulling the typical Burning Man “I don’t know man, you just gotta experience it yourseeeeelf” move and letting you know this is my personal derivative of what, to me, starts to entertain the idea of the drug we like to call “acid.”
For all those fearing that EDM producers are crossing too fast into the mainstream, you’ll be happy to hear those who are putting up a fight to keep things heavy. MIxed feelings about the band One Republic? Don’t run for your life, the techno monster TAI has smashed the official remix for the band’s new single – out now in Germany and forthcoming worldwide on Interscope. BOOM.
Ese’ & Zain have just released their Political Sirens EP for FREE on Soundcloud. The original mix is a gritty slab of techno that has a Harvard Bass/Autoerotique feel to it. The 2 remixes however send this tune to the main stage: the first being a techy club-driven rework from PTN, and an explosive moombahcore remix from Goseffects that rivals Alvin Risk and Nadastrom.
The latest EP forthcoming on Los Angeles imprint, Body High, is from label boss Samo Sound Boy. The 9th release on the newly founded label, 5 Dollar Paradiseconsists of 4 new originals featuring bouncy, Ghetto Techno with some obvious hits of Acid thrown in the mix. The EP will be available worldwide a week from today on the 25th, so I suggest you mark your calendars now. √+
