Tomorrow night, New Yorkers get their seventh dose of what’s to come from the venerable vibe-streaming institution that is Boiler Room. While the last one was a massive affair with the likes of Mike Simonetti (Italians Do It Better), ShadowBox (Pictures Music) and Nicolas Jaar, this one is going to strip down to somewhat proper New York vibes. How, you say? Well, let’s just get back to the basic point of a good New York party and play some damn house music; and there ain’t no party like a house party without this insanely-stacked lineup. Mike Servito (resident of The Bunker) will be providing a nice flow to the event, with artists like Juan Maclean and House of House (LIVE) giving out their own personal dose of what a NYC house vibe should be. Finally, the godfather will grace the Boiler Room in the flesh, as Frankie Knuckles shows off his legendary skills to listeners, chat room folk and the vibe convention that will surround him at the party itself. Incredibly excited and anxiously awaiting the stream tomorrow, we’re posting Juan Maclean’s breakfast set with Shitrobot some months back. Hyped would be an understatement.
In preparation of her sophomore studio album, Little Boots, has announced that her forthcoming album, Nocturnes, will be released on her new On Repeat Records imprint.
Little Boots, made a splash in 2009, ingratiating herself to an audience readily receptive to a new class of dance-pop songstresses clearly influenced by the electro infused touch points of the 70′s and 80′s. Stepping out of a class that defined itself as the next set of Dance femme fatales this side of Alison Goldfrapp, Little Boots’ next full length effort is shaping up to stand head to head with her musical classmates — Florence and the Machine, Ladyhawke, and …
Beardo disco DFA don Juan Maclean made a riotous appearance on Tim Sweeney‘s Beats In Space radio show last night, and began his set with a new tune, “Love In Space.” The show gets off to a commical start, and gets more ridiculous as it goes on. But in between the humorous banter is some excellent music, including this brand new tune.
Still GoingExclusive MixThis weeks podcast comes from two of New York City’s most talented DJ-producers, Liv Spencer and Eric Duncan, otherwise known as Still Going. The pair have been making music together since 2007, although they’ve only found time to release four singles in that time—perhaps due in part to other commitments as members of House of House and Rub-N-Tug respectively. But the tunes they have found time to create, including classic DFA hits “Still Going Theme,” “Spaghetti Circus” and “Untilted Love” are among the most memorable cuts to come from what one would have to call the nu-disco era.Liv and Eric have been getting busy in 2012, releasing two new singles—”D117″ and “Work That Shit Party”—on their own Still Going Records. Only the later tune, released this summer, appears on their new podcast, but there’s still plenty to enjoy here, including tracks by Carl Craig (the ubiquitous “Throw”), Tom Trago, I:CUBE, Clapton and DJ Harvey (in his popular Locossolus guise). Enjoy.
Check out The Juan Maclean‘s latest full-length release, Everybody Get Close. The collection of new tunes, classics, b-sides and remixes comes out digitally on Nov. 8 via DFA, but you can get a full dose of discofied analog robot house grooves just by pressing play now.
