As is the case almost every year, 2013 was loaded with amazing music put out by the most creative artists of our age. We posted mixtapes from some of the biggest names in hip-hop like Pusha T, Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Killer Mike x Big Boi, Jay-Z + 9th Wonder and then other tapes by [...]


What are your feelings on Daft Punk’s massively (over) hyped long play Random Access Memories? While it’s a solid piece of work with moments of brilliant production (e.g. “Contact”), it’s clear that it lacks the immortality of Homework. Chilean/American tech house phenom Nicolas Jaar seems to agree. He’s collaborated with Dave Harrington on a series [...]

Celebrating a decade of Crosstown Rebel techno luster

Ten years of a record label whose graph of greatness increases exponentially, Crosstown Rebels anhydrates 2012 with a King Tut level of sarcophogus to celebrate one of its most prolific and outstanding years with a just released CD, Rebel Rave 3 (pick it up on beatport).

Man, watching the white-hot snorting disaster that is Charlie Sheen’s unraveling has become 2011′s most compelling train wreck. The whole meltdown received the inevitable Taiwanese animation treatment this weekend, and as can be expected its genius is unbridled. I get the “fire breathing fists” and the strumpet in the bikini — hell, even Chuck Lorre [...]

What if Jesus came out as a DJ, wore New Era caps and made real holy water for his crew?

I like the quick mix of Flash animation with real-world graphics…if at least for even a second. Created by the Gobelins, a French animation crew made up of  Rémi Bastie, Jean-Baptiste Cumont, Clément Desnos, Jonathan Djob Nkondo and Nicolas Pegon, I guess you could call this a modern retelling of the parables…only with Technics and [...]

When I venture forth from this mortal coil, off into the cold dark void of nothingness, there will exist only a handful of moments to comfort me into the night — a sacred series of moments that I will always consider epic. As in, truly epic — the stuff of lore and immortality. The time [...]
