car

With their third unnerving collaboration with film director David Fincher, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have fashioned a dizzying and thoroughly hypnotic trip for Fincher’s version of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling suburban nightmare Gone Girl.
In a wonderful in-depth interview with the Wall Street Journal, Reznor claims that Fincher asked him to think of the “really terrible music you hear in massage parlors” as a starting point and …

Local producer/DJ/allaroundraddude Diego Herrera wears a grip of hats. The dublab DJ is a lynchpin in Pharoahs, produces wavy House as Suzanne Kraft and is set to release a brand new heater of a 12″ under the name Dude Energy.
The 2nd release on producer Tornado Wallace’s Animals Dancing label, Dude Energy finds Herrera flexing slightly less ambient muscle and with overtly chuggy intention. The 3 …

I <3 New York Endless

ny_endless

Being from Philadelphia, I admittedly don’t have a lot of love in my heart for New York.
It’s in my DNA as a Philadelphian underdog to snarl at “The Big Apple” (which is the corniest nickname for city I’ve ever heard.)
Last time I checked apples don’t smell like pee, sell $15 packs of cigarettes or charge thousands of dollars in rent for a closet.
Still, I gotta respect …

In 2010, a metaphysical interstellar spacecraft called Rainbow Disco Club docked in Tokyo’s Harumi Terminal in Tokyo Bay. The brainchild of intrepid and enterprising DJ dudes who believe in the power of the groove, Rainbow Disco Club was going to be a new kind of festival and a concerted effort to bring about a new wave of Japanese club life.
That ship flew into deep space with …

If you ever happen to catch my show on Saturday nights, you’re probably aware of my long-standing admiration for legendary UK DJ, half of ….Wizard’s Sleeve and Phantasy label boss Erol Alkan.
His influence on my ears is undeniable.
His penchant for looking for (and finding) the place where dreamy psychedelia and dark teeth grinding bangers meet is a next level gift and something I can only keep aspiring to do.
Although …

Lauer: Artist You Should Know

lauer-bis017

A number of years back, on the strength of some really strong, super wonky graphic design I picked up a 12″ by Lauer called “H.R. Boss“.
A chuggy, lush slice of beachy sunrise House, it turned out to be a set fixture for awhile.
Fascinated with all things Lauer, I started following the German artists output…Lauer, Hotel Lauer, Tuff City Kids (his project with Running Back label boss …

New Music From Warp Favorite Clark: “Unfurla”

Christopher Clark is a long time personal favorite of mine.
His releases all occupy a perfectly comfortable space on the shelf with any and all of Warp Records’ finest.
Clark splits the difference between all of the labels’ elder statesmen and has carved out his very own style. The stark, clean productionof  Autechre, chaotic, polyphonic atmospherics of Aphex, soulful, moody introspection of Boards of Canada, Plaid’s pretty playfulness.
Clark does …

I suppose now that the first track is out I can talk about the Ariel Pink listening party I went to several weeks ago where some LA cats got a preview of his forthcoming album.
Needless to say it was a sublimely strange and completely lysergic fever dream of a listen, that left a lot of listeners blissfully weirded out.
At one point, my good friend …
