After a well received tour and drop of her much anticipated album, Half Shadows, on Ultra Music, TOKiMONSTA has released some collaborative remix efforts of initial single The Force.
The original version of The Force had many take notice of how effortlessly her beat skills were able to match up with and contain the energy of featured artist Kool Keith. Continuing along that line, the remix package drops with remix efforts by legendary house producer Miguel Campbell, NY based producers, Nick Hook and Branchez, UK producer, Star Slinger, and LA based A.Chai. Each producer lends a different sound to the track, which makes for some interesting listening …
Whenever Armin Van Buuren graces a city with his inimitable sound, it’s cause for big celebration! The party doesn’t have to end in Philadelphia at 11pm on Friday, May 10, 2013. Join us at Red Sky for an unforgettable night of electronic music with Stereoshock, Bass Control and Ronin.
This Thursday, the late-night ceremonies at Sullivan Room will be focused on the darker spectrum of bass and techno fury, courtesy of the Autopilot series of events that have been going on for some time now. While delving into house and bass in previous Autopilot sessions, this one promises a more head-on approach, by highlighting two heavy-hitting new kids on the Brooklyn block. We start off with Brookyln-via-Toronto bass specialist Aquarian, as he’s riding high off his tremendous debut EP on UNO as well as sharing remix duties with techno godfather Juan Atkins for Rone, which will be coming out in a couple of weeks on French label Infiné. On the other side of the bill is the just-brandished bass and techno fury of Divvorce, who runs the ever-growing and impressively fastidious Fifth Wall label with fellow producer Hound Scales. His latest release, Used Experience has come out to acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and XLR8R and has gotten people to remember the feeling of a fist-pump and a good sweat. That’s good, considering the combination of these two producers playing together should be nothing short of fist-pumpingly brilliant and sweat-inducing. Rounding off the night will be local techno masked-man Sheepshead and resident of Autopilot (and one half of the End Fence label), Your Move. Check out all the details on their Facebook event HERE, as well as a way to get entry free (with RSVP). Also, feel free to vibe down below of what’s to come when you switch to Autopilot tomorrow night.
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.
