Uncategorized Teaser [Video]

Here comes something slightly weird but fresh, original and definitely uncategorized. This slidefilm-ish grayscale video was made by 56 Stuff, known as “a music label for non-boring, adventurous, cheerful and whatsoever electronic music” in order to present its forthcoming compilation. The title of it is “Uncategorized”.
“Uncategorized”, which will be released this December, consists of 15 tracks by various artists from all over the world who produce music of wide range. The compilation was prepared with utter contempt for all the kinds of categorization. Its video teaser follows the idea and denies conventionalities and rules of presentation, advertising and even orthography.
It's recommended to use headphones while watching this in order to experience the full effect. There are lots of off-screen happenings! It is also possible—if to listen really carefully—to hear fragments of all the tracks of the forthcoming “Uncategorized” compilation.

Klaxons Working With The Chemical Brothers On New Album

Klaxons have revealed they are enlisting the help of a number of different producers as they continue work on a new album, one of which is The Chemical Brothers‘ Ed Simons. In telling BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe that the recording process for their third studio album has proved to be a ‘learning curve’ for the band.
Klaxons' bassist Jamie Reynolds
“We’ve worked with loads of different people, but it’s been a learning process I think. We have learned to make electronic music with computers, that’s been our mission over the last however long.” “It’s been about a year’s worth of learning electronics and computers, which is something that we didn’t know anything about. I wouldn’t know how to have made an electronic drumbeat until this time last year.”

Top 5 Books For DJs

DJ books
DJs are everywhere bands used to be: school dances, wedding receptions, birthday parties, bars, clubs, and lately in championships where turntablists battle each other with their beat-juggling and mixing skills which often encompass acrobatics, lol. In 2004, for the first time, a DJ even played the opening ceremony of the Olympics held in Athens. As sales of DJ equipment (turntables, CDJs, mixers, midi controllers) have grown to rival those of guitars and drum sets, books now talk about the emergence of the DJ as full-fledged musicians have emerged, too.
Here are the Top 5 Books For DJs
1 - Last Night A DJ Saved My Life
Author: Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton
The title says it all; inspired by the name of a 1982 r&b song by Indeep, no doubt millions of dance floor habitues have woken up after a magical night of dancing and thought just that thought. "A truly great DJ, just for a moment, can make a whole room fall in love," say the authors in this entertaining biography of the DJ, with club charts from the mid-50s through the end of the '90s. Their How to DJ Right: The Art and Science of Playing Records, is even more fun.
2 - DJ Skills: The Essential Guide to Mixing & Scratching
Author: Stephen Webber
DJ Skills: The Essential Guide to Mixing & Scratching is the most comprehensive, up to date approach to DJing ever produced. With insights from top club, mobile, and scratch DJs, the book includes many teaching strategies developed in the Berklee College of Music prototype DJ lab. This book is perfect for intermediate and advanced DJs looking to improve their skills in both the analogue and digital domain.

3 - Looking for the Perfect Beat: The Art and Culture of the DJ
Author: Kurt B. Reighley.
An enjoyable read with lots of quotes by popular DJ's. Says the author, "If [my book] spares one neophyte DJ a little frustration, prompts a single pro to examine his or her art from a new angle, or just makes the reader think differently about how [musical] ideas can be presented and combined, then I won't feel like such a jackass when I tell people I'm a DJ."

4 - Love Saves the Day
Author: Kurt B. Reighley
A valuable historical record of the Disco phenomenon describing, from over 300 interviews with influential scene players including legendary DJ's, its transformation from gay and urban subculture to mainstream popular culture, including a fascinating selected discography of the music of the era.

5 -The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash 
The inspiration for countless DJ dreams, the legendary Bronx native (aka Joseph Saddler) sets the record straight in his new autobiography, including how he originated techniques that revolutionized DJ'ing from just playing records to reinventing the turntable as a musical instrument.



Beatport Staff Pick Nicologik & Zephyr feat. Solncé "Silhouette"

The instrumental composition of Nicologik and Zephyr's "Silhouette" is full of modern trance vibes so they involved a fresh and poetic singer to come on board: Solncé alias Vera Ostrova.
"Silhouette" bolts off with a powerful groove accompanied by metallic percs and roaring synths, a huge start softened only by Solncè who's time to shine comes as her breathy vocals captivate from the first word. The breakdown displays all of the power of the Nicologik & Zephyr imprints with a wickedly impressive synth, it is timeless!
You love this but don't like vocal tracks?.. just pick up the Instrumental Mix!
JOOP's Remix has already been marked a masterpiece with all the energy of his latest productions this is perfect sound for club gigs!
"Silhouette" is released by Graygoo Purple, home of Trance-Progressive vibes on the Graygoo imprint.

The 10 Best Acid House Tracks According To DJ Pierre

Best Acid House Tracks
Chicago producer DJ Pierre is credited as one of the founders of Acid House. He was one third of production trio Phuture, whose seminal 1987 EP ‘Acid Tracks’ inspired a generation. With Acid currently riding high in the charts as DJ Pierre sagely points out below, here’s a timely look back at its roots with his ten favourites Acid moments!
1) Phuture - Acid Tracks
Why? The intensity, the energy, and the veracity of the track. And… it’s the one that started it all.
This was the first time I heard an Acid track that was funky. Bootsy Collins would love this track. House heads who didn’t get into Acid, even loved this track.
Piano on Acid is what Tyree Cooper did on this one. This track was smooth, soulful, and jazzy. No one has done anything close to that since. (Oh yeah…it’s banging too!)
I love this because it was the first Acid song and the first acid track with singing on it. In Chicago this track is stilled played straight (not in a DJ mix) but on mainstream FM radio. Chicago still shows this much love.
Amazing Acid bass line. So catchy that it never gets old. Best vocal hook on Acid!
Wow, this Acid is so sexy, sensual and erotic. It just builds and builds to a massive climax.
The first time I heard this my stomach dropped! The Acid was so simple but at the same time deep, driving and menacing.
Hardfloor took Acid into a new more Techno/Trancy direction. They made Acid as though they heard it in the womb as a fetus. They made Acid as though they were born to make Acid.
This is a great track. One that I’m really proud of as it clearly states that Acid is the “Phuture” and look at it now, 26 years later and acid is still going strong. 
Adonis had a way of making great Acid lines without even tweaking the 303. Actually, his Acid lines are so hot that they don’t even need tweaking…

Hercules & Love Affair - Release Me [Video]

A love for Classic House music pervades Hercules & Love Affair's party-starting DJ-Kicks mix, which includes both vintage and modern productions. Few contemporary tracks capture the essence of what made the classics so essential as well as the Love Affair's own exclusive contribution to the mix, "Release Me." The music video takes it one step further, giving an explicit nod to visual aesthetic associated with late night television and steamy nightclub projections.

An Etiquette Guide for Party Animals

An etiquette guide is a set of rules outlining the responsibilities or proper practices for an individual. This time, I have researched the code of conducts that all clubbers should have in clubs, parties or festivals. Read them below and behave yourself!
  • If in a moment of transcendent musical ecstasy, somebody smiles at you, smile back. Clubbing is communal. Embrace that. If that same person then offers you a swig of their water and/or a sniff of their poppers, don't look at them as if they're handing you a fresh, steaming turd.
  •  If you need to validate your evening's experience not by dancing but by constantly updating your Facebook page or uploading footage to YouTube, then get yourself off the dancefloor.
  •  Your behaviour should not aggressively invade anyone's space.
  • Do you or your mates find it funny or unnerving that "it's full of right weirdos in here"? Then stop laughing and get your coat. The freaks own the night, and you're just a guest.
  • If you're 18, it might seem extraordinary that somebody over 40 would still be out clubbing. But they are. Sometimes for perfectly legitimate reasons. So stop asking stupid questions.
  • Don't harass the DJ. This isn't a 21st birthday. They don't take requests. There's a reason they are being paid to play music and you are paying to see them. You don't like their choice of tunes? Tough. Bad clubbing experiences are as formative as great ones.
  •  Girls. Young girls. You're in a good club; stop acting so petrified. You don't need to trail around holding hands and sneering at anybody who crosses your path. Men are not the enemy. Nor are other women.
  • There is a way of working your way through a packed crowd: slowly, saying "excuse me", a gentle hand in the small of someone's back to indicate you're coming through.
  •  In clubs, do you impose yourself on groups of girls on the dancefloor, joining in other people's mock "sexy dancing", getting a bit too close to the more enthusiastic female dancers? Then you're not a clubber. You're a sex pest.
  • Be nice to flyerers. There is nothing more dispiriting than standing outside a club at 4am being ignored, abused or handing people flyers that are thrown on the ground three feet later.
Finally, How to order drinks at the club?

The Lego DJ Is The Newest Toy Figure For Kids

Lego has just introduced its newest toy figure: the Lego DJ. He is part of a collectible series of eight figures that include more common characters in children’s media (pirate, alien, football player). The DJ is wearing jeans and a T-shirt with an electronic-looking pattern on it, and holding a thick vinyl record and a sleeve with black logos on it. The Techno club culture has finally become fully cute, LOL.

Proxy Presents His Debut Album 'Music From The Eastblock Jungles, PT. 1'

After years of anticipation, Proxy at last presents his debut album. Beloved by top DJs and stadium crowds, the undisputed master of the Turn It Up to 11 movement has created an album that harnesses the pure spirit of legit rave and Techno culture, with 11 tracks that span and elevate countless genres – notably inflected by classic bass and DnB – without regard for trends or ephemeral influences. The album is the product of an artist who forged a sound in complete isolation, with visa problems leading him to entrench himself in the middle of nowhere in his native Russia, continuing in the UK rave tradition of his Essex-spawned idols, The Prodigy. Listen and preview "Raven" below.

Boys Noize "What You Want" Remix Contest

At any given point in the long-standing career of Berlin's Alex Ridha (better known as Boys Noize), it has been hard to predict where exactly the adventurous producer would go next, and his latest single for his own Boysnoize Records is no different. Part funk-filled electro workout, part weirdo-house banger, "What You Want" has proven to be prime dancefloor fare, despite—or more likely, because of—its ability to evade exact classification. Now, Ridha has offered up the pieces of his latest tune for your remixing pleasure, giving away a Korg Kaossilator Pro and release on Boysnoize Records to the best rework submitted. So whether you think the tune could use some more grime and grit, or an infusion of soaring melodies and even more funkified basslines, make sure to submit your take on "What You Want" by November 5.

Adidas Underground + The Chemical Brothers "Don't Think" (Recap)

In August, Village Underground played host to what at first sight could easily have been mistaken for a dark circus cult. It was in fact an immersive screening of The Chemical Brothers’ "Don’t Think" as part of the ongoing events put on by Adidas Underground. 
Upon entry, each guest was given a white Adidas tracksuit top and was painted as one of the clowns featured in the ‘Don’t Think’ film. The result? A surreal night of strobes, loud music and menacing faces. However, during the event The Chemical Brothers weren’t there themselves, the atmosphere created by their live movie was electric!

Daft Punk Member Thomas Bangalter's 1995 EP Gets A Reissue

Trax On Da Rocks is a classic EP and the first first ever release from Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter. This material has been re-pressed, it includes five tracks of sublime dance floor concoctions from the Daft Punk auteur. From the syrupy electro-disco of the title track, to the jump-up Techno of "Roulé Boulé" to the filter fest that is "Ventura".

Stream the uplifting Techno track of "Roulé Boulé" below, check out the tracklist, and cop this essential re-release at fine retailers like our friends at Phonica.

On the other hand, Bangalter recently composed an ominous score for Lindsay Lohan’s short film called First Point, which is a bit less notable than his score for Irreversible or Daft Punk’s effort for Tron: Legacy.

Viral Video Of Techno Party From 1997 Surfaces On Internet

Have you ever think how Techno parties look in 1997? The funny video below recently surfaced on the net last week, and it has a total of 1 million views! If you are one of those nostalgic ravers from the 90s era who wanna bring back good memories to your life, then I will suggest you to check out the video and laugh a little bit about those times. . . After watching the video analyze, what things have changed in the Techno world of today?


Tiga's Favorite Tracks

The Canadian electronic music producer and Turbo Recordings boss empties the contents of his psychic record bag!
The track I'll be opening my next DJ set with
Zombie Nation - Attic Sundays
I love to start with a song that makes everyone feel comfortable. Zombie Nation still manages to find some funk in a funkless sea of  Techno.

The track that currently gets the most rewinds
Proxy - Junk
He is the Russian Liam Howlett: a true genius who knows how to make proper 21st-century rave music.

The track I wish I'd signed to my label
Scissor Sisters - Laura
I suppose had I tricked them into it and offered up cash at the right moment, I might have been able to sign Scissor Sisters. But I would never deliberately ruin a friend's career/life.

The ideal festival track
MGMT - Kids (Soulwax Remix)
While it might not have the same edge as a few years ago, in its prime this was an absolute festival destroyer/uniter.

The track that should have been a crossover hit
Tiga - You Gonna Want Me
I have to go with my own track, featuring Jake Shears, from a few years back. It had all the elements, I thought. But alas, the marketplace spoke, and in the end that's the beauty of Electroclash: only a hit is a hit.

The track that's been unfairly slept on this year
Duke Dumont - The Giver
This really has all the ingredients to be a big radio tune. We will see what happens.

The track I'd play at sunset in Ibiza
Mission Control - Outta Limits
Max Berlin's Elle Et Moi is a good one too. Invisible Conga People's Cable Dazed. My own remix of Alter Ego's Gary. I have massive playlists for that Ibiza sunset show that never quite happens.

In the late 80s and early 90s Dr Lektroluv used to have a great radio show named 'Behind The Beat' on Radio S.I.S in Ghent, Belgium.  During those times he was simply known as Stefaan Vandenberghe, his radio show focused on underground electronic music and Acid House. He also used to be a resident DJ at the 'Kaos' parties held at Cherrymoon during  the '90s, and today he is one of the most popular Techno DJs of Europe, that has never shown his face in public. This case is similar to other masked DJs who dominate the electronic music scene, such as Daft Punk and The Bloody Beetroots.

Simon De Pury The Art Auctioneer Who Became A DJ

Hilarious news here! Simon De Pury is much more than the art world’s most controversial auctioneer, he is also a DJ! Watch his debut music video here. De Pury, dubbed as the “man with the golden gavel” is such a very unique character.
Simon De Pury ↓
“Ever since I was a teenager, I have been just as interested in music as I have in art. It’s actually very similar to auctioneering: as an auctioneer, you want everybody to bid energetically, and as a D.J. you want them to dance energetically.”
De Pury's favorite music genres are House music and classic groovy  hits from the late 70´s era. This prestigious man has a fanbase made mostly of the jaded jetset of the art world! Rumours are circulating that he's planning to launch an album in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder. 

Watch Mr. Simon De Pury mixing Old School music . . . LOL
