The Practice Of Naked Yoga Is A New Trend In Ibiza

It is the trend that is encouraging New York yogis to bare it all, literally, and now it is making its way to Europe - in the form of a naked yoga retreat. The unusual concept of stripping off to indulge in some downward dog has taken the Big Apple by storm, with classes at the Bold & Naked studio in Manhattan selling out. Now luxury travel company Formentera Yoga has experienced similar success with its first all-naked holidays on the Balearic island of Ibiza.

The retreat is open to both men and women and is on sale from $1,546 USD. It will combine mixed yoga classes for the de-robed at a luxury finca (country house) set in 20 acres of fragrant pine forests on the north of the island overlooking the sea. The retreat has its own swimming pool and even a helipad for VIP guests. The first experience, due to start in mid-May, has already sold out, so the company is hurriedly adding extra dates to cater to upmarket holidaymakers looking to get back to nature!


Locomatica - Rootkit (Hans Bouffmyhre Remix)

Maybe the best one-sentence description for this release should be "flawless journey from deep emotions to solid patterns". Well-mannered piece of Techno named "Rootkit" is an opener with noir atmosphere bricked deep into its structure and gloomy stabs on top after which the whole package slips into firmer interpretation of "Rootkit", directed by infamous Techno giant Hans Bouffmyhre who delivers well-crafted slice of driving Techno with precise stabs, gradually built flux which culminates every time high-octave arps drop.

The World's First Weed Vending Machine

Marijuana at the push of a button? 

Colorado's marijuana enthusiasts are in for a treat. While similar consoles do already exist for registered dispensaries in states where the drug is approved for medical use, never before has a machine been aimed at the recreational user; enabling customers to purchase marijuana directly, rather than over the counter as it were. The appropriately emerald-hued ZaZZZ machine, manufactured by American Green, was unveiled on Saturday in Avon, Colorado, stocked with Herbal Elements marijuana. And while the console won't be available to the general public quite yet, its first outing certainly generated excitement. Check out the video below for more information.

Paul first heard Trance music at the age of 10. At that time, Trance music was not very popular in Russia. In 2003-2004, Paul discovered a lot of the major Trance producers.

The All-In-One DJ Controllers Grow In Popularity!

As a DJ, you may have heard something like this leveled at you and your ilk at least once: “All you’re doing is pressing buttons!” As enlightened sympathizers, we know like you do that playing piano or drums really just boils down to pressing buttons, as well. 

So for better or for worse, and whether you’re an experienced DJ or not, with a good “all-in-one” DJ controller, you can pull off professional DJ sets by doing nothing more than—you guessed it—pressing buttons! 

Of course, there’s much more than just that to great DJing. More elaborate equipment can certainly help, but even a basic controller can get you started mastering the fundamentals, which is still your most direct avenue toward successful DJing. 

When we talk about an all-in-one DJ controller, we’re referring to a USB MIDI controller for DJ use that includes an audio interface and has enough controls to suffice as the only controller you’d need to perform; in most cases, that entails a controller that condenses the layout of two turntables and a DJ mixer into one box, and modern units generally include extras for effects, looping, sample and/or cue point triggering, transport, browsing and loading tracks, and more. 

Of course, depending on your ambition, you could always add supplemental controllers to the setup. Of concern when choosing a controller are, of course, price and then built-in software, and whether the unit has two or four mixer channels. 

Most DJ software these days supports 4-deck mixing, meaning you could have four tracks playing and being mixed at once!

The prices vary according to your needs as a DJ. There are three prices ranges for DJ Controllers: less than $500, $500-$999, and $1,000 and up. Some of them come with some form of software—either a limited version or the full professional program.

Remember, the best way to get DJ gigs is to produce your own music—something you already do! And a great way to get your music some exposure is to play it out; successful DJing and music production naturally feed off of each other.

My favorite all-in-one DJ Controller is the Pioneer DDJ T1.


Music Sounds Better When You Know The Artist Is "Eccentric"

Our brains associate eccentricity and creativity in musicians, painters, writers, and other artists.
A new research demonstrates that an artist’s eccentricity, even in realms irrelevant to the medium of expression, can enhance our perception of the artist’s work.

In our minds, eccentricity and creativity go together like, well, Bjork and swans. Just as generating a creative idea requires deviating from conventional modes of thought, quirkiness involves deviation from conventional social behavior. If you ignore the rules in one domain, you may also ignore them in another. Once we form a stereotype of the erratic artist, we may see those who fit the stereotype more snugly as being better artists.

OMG! Deadmau5 Records Himself Playing A Techno Set

Deadmau5 raised eyebrows recently when his testpilot alias got a release via Richie Hawtin's Plus 8 imprint. 

The double A-side single is way more stripped back and functional than the Mau5's more recent big-room offerings and seemed to be a nod toward the darkened club music that he obviously digs. 

This weekend he laid down two hours of uncompromising four-to-the-floor live for fans on his VIP access website. 

The Techno set, which includes cuts from Carl Craig, Audion, Joris Voorn and the man himself, has found its way onto YouTube and shows Deadmau5 banging it out in the nerdy heaven of his studio. 

He looks like he's having a lot of fun and is slammin' it in true having-a-mix-at-the-weekend style. 

Check it below.

New York's Charlie Scott

Queens native Charlie Scott is living a fervent life like Keith Urban and Neil Young... not just musically, but sober. 

“I developed a terrible addiction to drugs which lasted until I was twenty one, ultimately leading to my parents deeming me hopeless and putting me out onto the street. After sleeping in a local park for a couple of nights, I was humbled enough to give rehab a chance.” 

Charlie’s music tells the story about about the battle he had with drugs and his triumph recovery. His voice is not only a reminiscent of an early Slim Shady, he also has the same undefeated mindset and incidental parallel life as the the Grammy-winning rapper, Eminem, who detailed his struggles with addiction on his latest album, 'Recovery'.
