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.”

Theatre of Delays has gotten a hold of the new technopunk Boys Noize track “What You Want” and flipped that bad boy on its head.  The Theatre of Delays remix douses the original in liquid synths and sets it on discopunk fire.  The synth melody is reminiscent of the Tom Tom Club or more recently the track “Girls” by Prodigy.  Add in some heavy vocoder and you’ve got yourself some pure robotic bliss.

Get on that FREE robo-boogie…

Next Monday, August 6th will see the release of ‘XTC’ — the first official single from Boys Noize‘s upcoming third studio album, Out Of The Black. I remember the first time I heard ‘XTC.’ It was just after 5AM on the Cosmic Meadow stage at Electric Daisy Carnival 2011 in Las Vegas. Boys Noize had just walked onto the stage, equipped with his standard canvas DJ bag and a black snapback cap. He walked behind the decks and casually whipped up ‘XTC’ as his opening track. Unaware of what it was at the time, I was immediately energized by the relevant, repetitive, robotic vocals of the Techno jam that I knew had to come from the mind of Mr. Ridha. Over a year later, we will now see its release on Boys Noize Records. √+ Continue Reading

HARD Summer at the LA State Historic Park in Downtown Los Angeles is right around the corner, and with 2 days, 4 stages and one of the biggest, most diverse lineups HARD has ever put together, it’s safe to say that this year’s festival may be the best HARD production (on land) to date.

Set times have just been released this morning via the HARD Summer Website, so make sure to head over there to get your nights scheduled. Some tough acts are going head to head, but with the landscape of the festival grounds providing for easier movement about the festival, I think we’ll all be able to catch a bit of everything we need to.

Have a look at my personal Top 5 Picks of each day as well as 4 installments of the Hard Summer Mixtape series after the jump! Continue Reading

Yesterday, we heard the world premiere of ‘What You Want’ on Rolling Stone, and the first single from the highly anticipated album is unsurprisingly astounding.
