If the rapidly rising Italian producer, NT89, isn’t on your radar just yet, it will be after you soak in his latest release out on Bad Life Records, Payne EP. Deep, dark, and grungy are the first adjectives that come to mind after listening to the 3 track EP, complete with two originals and a remix from Bang Gang/Mad Decent rep, Obi Blanche. Already picking up hype from Mumbai Science, Bobmo, Paul Chambers, and more, I’m pretty sure we might even witness the big guns like Tiga and Erol playing out this Future Techno masterpiece known as Payne. Pick it up on Beatport now.
Crookers will be heading out on tour to the United States this September to coincide with their new album being released on Southern Fried, and just this week, they’ve released the remix package for their big Dr. Gonzo hit, ‘The Gonzo Anthem,’ equipped with remixes from Mumbai Science, Sinden, Will Bailey, and a whole heap of others. Preview all of them below and head over to Beatport to pick up the whole thing. In addition, Crookers will be headlining CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood on September 16th which also happens to be BONES’ birthday, so come on out for the Crookers’ Avalon debut and birthday festivities!
Summertime is not nearly over, which means we are keeping the big time bookings going on the West Side at VS. in Santa Monica. Last week, we had a blast hosting the PIE Artists x GDD™ Mumbai Science Tour along with John Roman and Meech, and this week we’re just as thrilled as we welcome Teki Latex & Orgasmic of Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team all the way from France as well as an underbill takeover from Gold Lion! Come on out for a smashing good time!

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!
Our good friend John Roman has just released his Sala EP today on Plant Music, and he is being kind enough to give away the b-side to you in full quality! The track, ‘War Drums,’ has already received support from many producers including Mr. Theo Keating, AKA Fake Blood, who very eloquently pointed out the obvious, stating, “You can’t not dance to this.” We’re also excited to be in the works of collaborating with PIE Artists for a tour for John this July and August where he’ll be supporting the amazing Belgian duo, Mumbai Science, with dates from SD to SF already booked up! Make sure to keep up on John’s Facebook and head on over to Beatport to pick up the full Sala EP release today!
Pay attention kiddos, big tunes ahead! In this week’s edition of “The Dirt,” we are proud to present the incredibly talented, Linus Eklow, aka Style of Eye. The Stockholm native is known for his eclectic sound, which stylistically utilizes a fresh blend of techno, house and a healthy dose of raw, grinding electro. He has had a considerable amount of success with releases on Dirtybird Records, whom you’ll recall from the from Claude VonStroke/Justin Martin CONTROL at Avalon last Friday. With support from some of dance music’s biggest names (John Dahlback, Tiga, and Swedish House Mafia to name a few), Style Of Eye is on track to fulfilling DJ Mag’s prediction of becoming an “Important Future Star.” We predict he will continually blow us away with innovative productions, pumping DJ sets and generally just being a really cool guy. Most of these are unreleased or brand new so read more for streams of his top tracks with my commentary after the jump…
If you’ve been sleeping on Mumbai Science please do yourself a favor and wake the fuck up. Sorry for being so blunt, but if massive support from the likes of Boys Noize, Erol Alkan, and 2manyDJs hasn’t piqued your interest then I don’t know how else to draw your attention to the fact that these two Belgian scientists are hotter than a Bunsen burner and here to stay.
Grab the mixtape they put together just for you dirty dancers and make sure to peruse my chit-chat with Jonas and Maarten below and get to know ‘em, cause they’re your new favorite duo.
Could Mumbai Science be coming on any stronger right now? Ladies who spend most of their nights out constantly fending off overly aggressive, creepy dudes … I now feel your pain. First the Belgian duo commandeered Halloween’s biggest sound system, as seemingly every DJ at HARD Haunted Mansion in LA dropped ‘Ancova,’ and now their new release ‘Gold’ off Lektroluv apparently stole the biggest global event of last weekend too, I Love Techno 2010. Find out why everyone (Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Crookers, Sound of Stereo, Djedjotronic and Fake Blood, to name a few) have been banging their tracks out recently.
