Kthei??? and his buddies Shortrock and V8 went on some 7 hour bender and recorded this AngrySpace Analog EP. Made entirely in 7 hours in Shortrock’s Northshore, Massachusettes basement. ‘No loops…all drums scratched live,’ Shortrock promises.

Canadian star Deadmau5 has put his name next to a new iPhone/iPod touch revolutionary app that allows you to mix his music. Touch Mix could also be a forerunner to how DJing software on the platform should work.
There are two virtual decks on Touch Mix, as well as a crossfader and volume controls. You can adjust BPMs, and there are also a few sound effects including a scratch option.
Sounds great on paper, but Touch Mix will only appeal to Deadmau5’ fans for now as the software only comes with ten Deadmau5 tracks (which is great for him), and it’s not currently possible to import any other music.

Stones Throw owner Peanut Butter Wolf, along with Dam Funk, DJ Lady Sha, and the Voice of God(…), held quite the show this past Saturday at the Dakota Lounge in Santa Monica, Los Angeles.

Then abstract-hop act The Voice of God(…) came on with quite an impressive set of musicianship…violin, sax, guitar, and even a harp! All backin’ beats for the EmCee to rip over. It was original and interesting, but did not quite fit the bill of night.
LA’s DJ Lady Sha followed up on the tables with some real good hip-hop mixes, remixes, and all the right fixings. Club bangers, soulful jams, and hip-hop joints …
This past Sunday, French DJ Toxic Avenger and a crew of Los Angeles based DJ’s, Steve Aoki, Blake Miller, Paparazzi and Less Than Zero broke out the tables and performed in the Riverside Municipal Auditorium. The crowd was crazy and security on stage was lax, during a few moments in the show the stage was packed with dancing kids having the time of their lives.
The event was called Humanity and it was thrown by B & M productions, who seem to be only giving Riverside what it desires. Over the past few years, the Riverside dance electro scene has seen visitors such as Crystal Castles, Boys Noize, Le CastleVania, Guns n Bombs, Acid Girls and more.
It seems probable that Riverside, deep within California’s Inland Empire, could become a major stop along the nations indie-electro dance …
