Flying Lotus has been around these parts a lot as of late, no doubt in anticipation of his hip-hop/jazz/leftfield bass fusion You’re Dead! album set to release October 7th. In part of the slow reveal of the album’s arrival, FlyLo treats us to “Never Catch Me” — a collaborative work with Compton’s own Kendrick Lamar. Never mind any recent [...]
In some ways, Daft Punk’s Human After All remix isn’t exactly anything new, seeing as it came out back in 2006.

For about 10 years between the late 90s and throughout the naughts, Winter Music Conference in Miami was pretty much the greatest place on god’s green Earth. Directly following SXSW, WMC was the electronic/dance/EDM equivalent, except with turquoise water, bikinis, late night Cuban food and gorgeous art deco hotels. Just the thought of it makes [...]
Those rambunctious rabble-rousers over at dirtybird records are at it again, creating some masterful music aimed at dancefloor bedlam. San Fran’s Justin Martin teams up with Bristol’s finest, Eats Everything, on a two-track EP titled Hello Mr. Jello, due March 31st on dirtybird.
