Electro, get it?PARTY BEN CONTINUES TO INDULGE IN ELECTRO NONSENSE
You thought I was marginal before. While one could point to my post-LIVE 105 status (and subsequent freedom from hearing Foo Fighters every 15 minutes) as the reason behind my apparently rediscovered love for the dancey beats, actually if you go to my music page you'll see that I was putting hip-hop over breakbeats way back at the beginning of my so-called "career;" one could argue my forays into Green Day editing were the uncharacteristic daliances. If one cared, which one doesn't. Anyway, thankfully, lately I have more places to play these sort of remix-y sounding tracks: first up, I'll be doing another appearance tomorrow (2/3) at French Kiss, my favorite upstart Sunday night electro/indie/disco party, with my new buddies MyKill and Forever 21. Look for me to throw a bunch of the bassline-y Sinden and Switch stuff into the mix plus the awesomest B-more jams around.

Also, now that Bootie will be available for your mashup pleasure twice a month over at DNA Lounge, we're happy to be expanding the concept a little bit, and starting February 23rd we'll indulge our love for the unofficial remix, bootleg re-edits and whacked out re-versions in the back room at the appropriately named Electro-Bootie. I can't wait.

In that spirit, here's two new items that fit in this category:

Low Addict Plump DJs vs. Flo Rida - "Low Addict"
9MB 192kbps mp3


I've always been a fan of Plump DJs (and in fact, some of my first forays into the nightclub scene in San Francisco were in the Nu Skool Breaks scene; wow, those were the days) and it's nice to see they're still putting out quality tunes. This one fits right in under that Low song that's everywhere.
Minuit Music Tepr vs. Shannon - "Minuit Music"
8MB 192kbps mp3


This one takes the datA remix of Tepr's "Minuit Jacuzzi," a track that already kind of seems to reference '80s freestyle, and makes it a little more obvious. I actually had to completely reconstruct the Tepr track to make this happen, it sounds pretty easy but it wasn't, I promise.


Fun. Something else people have been asking about might be appearing in a Bootie Top Ten soon as well... stay tuned.

Mexican Flag Also, in other-country news, it looks like I'll be headed to Mexico in a few weeks for a couple gigs in Puebla and Monterrey as part of the MX Beat Soundfest warm-up schedule. I'm just happy to get away from rainy San Francisco for a few days. Anyway I'll be watching Dora the Explora to brush up on my Spanish and also putting together some new tracks featuring Mexican artists for the occasion. See the Events page for more details as they become available. iAzucar!
