S!CK is continuing their long-line of scintillating stack-a-thon events with a takeover, courtesy of Night Slugs co-founders Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990. However, if you think this will be regular club night out, you’d be wrong. S!CK’s reputation for independent electronic abundance provides a broad spectrum of party-genre specification, as evident by their eclectic lineups. The lineup for this week’s party is no exception with support coming from the S!CK residents (THOMAϟϟ/Rezzie), MikeQ (Fade To Mind/Mad Decent), Slava (Future Timess/!K7) and Pictureplane (Love Pump United). Yeah, it’s a lot to take in. So better yet, we’ll have you check out the flyer below post-jump along with the link to presale tickets.

With Detroit purist techno still ringing in our ears from Movement, we weren’t really expecting to be feeling Diplo‘s Philly-via-LA hipster steez with French cohort Douster. But “On’s” slowmotion groove and dizzying John Lennon sample fits right in to the sort of smart-yet-funky dance music that is all we want to listen to right now.
You know I can not stand holiday music — it always sounds like someone is cutting my ears apart with overly sweet, almost artificial good time feelings. Maybe for someone as dark and cynical as me, that music just doesn’t fly. Well it seems like Bird Peterson challenged all of us and made this extraordinary holiday mixtape which is so friggin’ fresh, I think I might play it in July. Jazz it up holiday grinch, it seems like even Bird Peterson revived the holiday spirit in me. Download the tape via Mad Decent.
