After listening to Tiga‘s firing remix of the new FOOTPRINTZ single this morning, I did a bit of digging to see what the man from Montreal has been up to recently. Very pleasantly surprised, I learned that Tiga was coming out of a multi-year original solo production hiatus to make the 100th release for Damian Lazarus‘ Crosstown Rebels imprint. The EP is titled The Picture and will be released August 27th, with two originals as well as a remix from Crosstown’s Subb-An. The entire EP evokes a dark characteristic that agrees with the underground label’s reputation and matches it with Tech/Pop sensibilities from Tiga. With nearly 10 years under its belt, we congratulate Damian Lazarus and Crosstown Rebels on their 100th release, and commend Tiga on his much appreciated return to his solo project. √++ Continue Reading
Aussie Techno-head, Light Year, will be in Los Angeles this Thursday at the Echoplex in Silver Lake for the big-time lineup that the good folks at Check Yo Ponytail have put together including Tiga, Damian Lazarus, and of course, Light Year. It’s going to be a night of massive tunage, and the mate from Sydney has put together an exclusive mix to coincide with the party. Featuring tracks from Green Velvet & Harvard Bass, French Fries, Moodymann, and more, this mix seems to be the Techno equivalent to the Luvstep mix series from Dirty South Joe & Flufftronix. First party to it, then FREEK down to it, and report back with which was more fun. Download + tracklist down below. √+
Los Angeles, I can confidently say that this Saturday marks one of the best dance music events to ever happen in this city. Crosstown Rebels, the lauded label run by the mysteriously interesting Damian Lazarus, and Flaunt Magazine are bringing the infamous Get Lost party to the West Coast after multiple successful and wildly hedonistic events during WMC in Miami in years past. With some of the biggest names in the global underground scene, Get Lost LA should be a bequest of auditory knowledge to all electronic music enthusiasts in this city. Find all necessary info below and make sure to read after the jump to see what Los Angeles’ trio, Droog, have to say about Get Lost, the Culprit label, and how Jamie Jones and Lee Foss helped them be where they’re at now.
