Part of the Weekend Never Dies never fails to get my heart beating fast:

feeling sooo lazy today

So here are three old remixes of Justice

Justice - Phantom Pt II (Boys Noize Unreleased Turbine)
Justice - Stress (Auto Remix)
Justice - Valentine (Vega Remix)

One day when I actually DJ I want a picture taken of my setup, so I can compare it to this one, my first setup.

Passion Pit - Sleepyhead
Passion Pit - Sleepyhead (The Knocks Remix)

free advice

Here is a tip if you are a dj - If you are not very good, don't be a douche and try and ignore people making requests. Especially if it is a legitimate request like this:

The Whip - Trash

"I wanna be traaash(ed)"


I figure since I already uploaded it for a friend, I might as well share it with you.



this isn't a secret

But I still think it's real cool to hear original source material for songs:

Title song from the soundtrack of a 1980s Dario Argento slasher film -
Goblin - Tenebre

à la electro:
Justice - Phantom

Please endure my shitty photoshops, now that I am using pictures I decided it will be my practice for learning photoshop.

Excuse my poor photoshop skills.

Props to Ohh! Crapp

mashups waagaaaa

Another, my favorite actually:

Diamonds - Margherita Hustle

I love Diamonds, and The Glamour (Diamonds is 1/2 of The Glamour)

The Glamour - Kids Night

picking back up

I went to DC for a bit for the Obama festivities. DC sorely lacks good dance nights.

But back on track with mashups:
THOMAS - Fun for the People (M.I.A. vs Calvin Harris)

Also, remember this song? It was (and is) tight.

GRUM - Whoa

I don't DJ this week, but it will be a great night.

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


Forgot I was going to do the mashup thing. Here you go, day one.

Wildlife - Knights Crusade (Crystal Castles vs Terry Lynn)

down pt 2

Feeling really bummed for other reasons. Somehow this song helps.

Groove Armada - Little by Little

I hope you have Itunes. For you 3 people out there reading (I am being optimistic), if you don't have Itunes I will either convert it or put up an mp3. I am lazy right now.

this week at hot knees

My friend Eric Celedonia is joining Bri and I to DJ. Initially Bri couldn't do it so he was the replacement, but now she can, and we don't want to boot him because of a misunderstanding. So the bill is just upped.

Anyhow, Eric is responsible for my obsession with that Das Pop remix, among some other gems so I am pretty sure it'll be a good time.

I really want to play Breakfast at HK again since almost no one was there last time I DJed.

I am playing this, however:
The Crystal Method - Double Down Under (LAZRtag Remix)


Thanks to my brother for getting this stuck in my head-
Pet Shop Boys - Go West

down down down

I have been kind of down lately, and this song will pretty much tell you why.
Das Pop - Fool for Love (SebastiAn Remix)

Ugh, mediafire

lix dixco

Here's some fuggen disco!

Catalan FC - Respect is Burning

I think next week I am going to post one mashup I really like a day.

a classic

If you don't have this song, get it. I don't need to say anything else.

Le Le - Breakfast

wait a minute

Sometimes I unwittingly pass over good remixes because of bad or boring intros.

Case in point:
Estelle - Wait a Minute (Just a Touch) (Count of Monte Cristal and Sinden Remix)

They usually do top notch remixes. Only annoyance is the It Takes Two sample they use in so many fucking remixes - "woo! yeah! woo! yeah!" Is that It Takes Two or did they sample someone for that?

Anyhow, its not stellar, but still dancefloor bangin.

Pre my electro explosion/implosion, I was really into indie pop. I still am, just, not as often. I still have my love for Of Montreal, despite their winning "Gayest Album of the Year:" Skeletal Lamping. I am not even kidding, that album is gay in many senses. Just not the happy one. Any album that has a song that starts out with "I'm so siiiick of suckin a diiiick" wins Gayest Album in my book.

Back before Kevin Barnes got all wannabe gay (or Fauxmosexual per Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down), he was only slightly ambiguously gay. Maybe in the cutely bi-curious way. And he wrote albums as good as Coquelicot, Aldhils, or The Bedside Drama.

I am in an older OM mood today, so here is the first track off of Aldhils Aboretum.
Of Montreal - Doing Nothing

Bonus, their cover of Jimmy
Of Montreal - Jimmy

As everyone always is pointing it out to me, and I have been saying it all along, if you have not checked out the Twelves yet please do so. Every remix is fucking SPOT ON.

I am going to kick off posting MP3s with a Twelves remix:
Asobi Seksu - Thursday (Twelves Remix)

more anonymous

In regards to your query:

a) I don't think I am special because I think about 99% of the electro community knows it is pronounced Masterkraft. b)I thought it was something humorous to share on my blog. If you don't like it don't read it. If I was holding it over someone's head I would have corrected them when they said it. c)What the fuck does Alternative Press know? They know shit about electro. Seriously, AP?

Anyhow, I like that I am at least getting some traffic, even if it is just a troll. Maybe this means I'll actually start posting MP3s? Maybe. I just didn't see the point before, because that alone won't get me onto hypem. What's the point of getting on hypem anyhow? It's fucking saturated with bloghouse. I am nothing special, what I am writing about is nothing new. But I think I have a few friends who trust my taste in music and whenever I get a song worthy enough to post they'd probably want to dl it as well. There's my initiative.

current jams of 09

Soulwax - Miserable Girl (again?)
MSTRKRFT - Easy Love (still?)
Friendly Fires - Paris (Aeroplane Remix) (still?)
MGMT - Kids (Pet Shop Boys Remix) (MISS U)
Pomomofo - Island (Toxic Avenger Remix)
Juvelen - Hanna (HAY PRINCE)
20 Fingers - Short Dick Man (LOL)




Finally saw it. I want to fuck the brains out of that fucking lifestyle. I need it.

I asked Ian to DJ with me, as real DJs. Soulwax (well, 2ManyDJs) are brothers, so brother and sister would be cool, right?
