Caspa in Vegas review

Category: , , By brockolio

This time we took to the skies to catch the Sub Soldier Caspa invading downtown Vegas for the Smash quarterly party at the Beauty Bar downtown.

Vegas is nucking futs. Let's get that straight to begin with. After landing, we headed to Fremont to get our pregame on and the inevitable novelty Margarita while pissing away time at the slots. Headed down Fremont to check the scene around 11 to hear the tag-team sounds of Swissman and OB1 from at least 3 blocks away. Big set to get things warmed up including hefty remixes of Sister Nancy's 'Bam Bam', 'A Milli', Rusko's 'Mr Chips', DZ's killer remix of Bobbie Caldwell and some old school jungle vibes to end the set leading up to the main event.

Caspa's set was monumental. Never having seen him live before, he has an awesome style behind the decks and makes it all seem effortless. Every two minutes, another huge tune would seemingly come out of nowhere and drop emphatically. Some highlights of his set included Chase & Status club staples 'Eastern Jam' and 'Saxon', Rusko's 'Bring It On' remix', as well as some fresh Skream tunes including his recent jungle tribute 'Burnin Up' bringing you back to the days of Cloud9 and Ray Keith. He also threw down some DMZ business with the anthemic 'Anti-War Dub' as well as a rough and tough Coki number, some roots/reggae vibes with Tes' 'Up In The VIP' and Rusko's 'Soundguy' and the killer dancefloor tear-up tunes from the man himself 'Marmite', 'Where's My Money' remix, his remix of 'Cockney Thug' as well as recent releases 'Floor Dem' and 'My Pet Monster.'

After Caspa's vicious set, KING stepped up to the plate repping Shift. and continued the dancefloor decimation until the early hours of the morning.

Big ups to everyone who came out, all of the SMASH family for the hookup, and Claw for the pics [badman producer and DJ as well]. You guys got an awesome thing going on down there, keep it up. Also want to shout out dude on the couch for some laughs, how you managed to sleep next to that soundsystem I will never know.

New XLR8R podcast from the 'Chavy Boys of London' aka Scottie B, Shawn Caesar, and DJ King Tutt.

via XLR8R.com:

"Baltimore club music has a rep for being energetic, but from the sounds of this mix, which is primarily just that, the Chavy Boys of London must keep an entire fridge stocked with Red Bull—and pound a few down when commissioned to do DJ mixes for music websites.

Ripping through just over an hour's worth of music, Scottie B, Shawn Caesar, and DJ King Tutt, most commonly associated with the Unruly Records crew, give us a primer on how many styles you can pack into one mix while simultaneously delivering one of the most hyperactive podcasts XLR8R has featured in a while. The mix—as always, exclusive to XLR8R.com—bounces between 4/4 and two-step beats, Crookers and Say-Wut, and includes the late K-Swift’s voiceover interspersed in the madness. And when it comes to shout-outs, there will be none greater than the MC on track 29 as he rails, "Everybody in the club, if you hate someone right now, you need to turn to them and punch them in the fucking face!"

Chavy Boys:
01 KW Griff - "Pork and Swift"
02 DJ Class - "Im the Ish (Remix)'

20 Chavy Boys - "Peggy"
21 Chavy Boys - "Weirdo"
22 Technics - "RadioHead Beatdown"
23 Technics - "RadioHead FX Mix"
24 DJ Will Roc - "Unruly Radio (Shawn Caesar's My Crew Be Unruly Remix)"
25 DJ King Tutt - "Future Remix Featuring Kellee Maize"
26 Simon Harris - "Ya Bad Sista Break"
27 DJ Scottie B Vs. DJ Unk - "In Yo Face (Scottie B Remix)"
28 Say Wut - "GO Part 1"

Sonic Weaponry article

By brockolio

Was browsing the old archives of kode9's blog the other night and came across an entry that he had posted about a 2001 article in Fourtean Times about sonic weapons. Made for an extremely interesting read and thought it appropriate to pass it on.

Sonic Weapons by Jack Sargeant. Fourtean Times, 2001.

You can check out more of kode9's post on the subject HERE

He also has a book releasing on MIT Press about Sonic Warfare at some point in 2009 that we will be sure to keep you informed on.

Zhao: NGOMA2 african techno/house

Category: , , , , By brockolio

Here is a new one from Zhao. If you enjoyed his NGOMA1 mix, which you can find a few posts down, here is his newest mix; this time featuring the sounds of African Techno and House as well as other afro-influenced styles of electronic music. Here is what he had to say about the mix:

'it is said that the drum itself was invented in Africa. and as far as i'm concerned, all modern pop and especially dance music have deep roots in the musical traditions of that continent. i have made the admittedly sensationalist proclamation "techno comes from Africa", and here is an extremely simplified version of my concept of this lineage: slave songs - blues - gospel - jazz - funk - disco - house - techno ---- the circle is complete. some may have problems with this generalization (and in some ways i do too), but all sidelines, exceptions, and details aside, essentially it makes sense to me. after all, the 4 on the floor hypnotic groove can be found in the myriad styles of African music from every era, be it high-life, rumba, or the thousands upon thousands of much older regional traditions.

most people were, and still are, confused, skeptical, or straight up dismissive when i talk about this, but history was made in 2008 with Warp Records' release of DJ Mujava's Township Funk in Europe, which i believe is only the beginning of Europeans coming to grips with the awesome power of African Techno.

i have been playing Euro-centric minimal, hard techno, breaks, electro, etc., for years, but in recent years have increasingly sensed a solipsism, stagnation, and bankrupsy. but i feel the style loosely termed "UK Funky" is leading the way out of the rut; and it is no coincidence that the most exciting thing happening in European dance music is directly derivative of African and Afro-Caribbean rhythmic structures.

enough talk. switch on the amplifier, lower the lights, and put on those dancing shoes.'
