NEW CLUB NIGHT OFFERS MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO SEE PARTY BEN PLAY CDS HE JUST BURNED THAT AFTERNOON
They're funky fresh. While I'm probably best known for my turgid rock ballad mashups, my first love is electro, and I continue to be blown away by recent movements in dance music: thumpy fidget house, zoomy bassline, skittery Bmore. That's why I'm so stoked to have a new venue to play stuff I like as well as my own more electro-riffic productions. I've gotten together with DJ MyKill of stalwart Sunday night party French Kiss for a new monthly Thursday we're calling Call In Sick. Cause, get it, you won't go to work on Friday? We think it's cute. Anyway, it's at Beauty Bar, the cozy spot on Mission & 19th in San Francisco, and hopefully the entry price of "free" will help entice people to stop by.

What can you plan on hearing? Well, while both MyKill and myself enjoy anything with that big laser bass noise, we're both big cheeses, so you'll hear a lot of recognizable samples and some 80s silliness thrown into the mix. Plus, we're both pumping out remixes and edits faster than you can say "mixdown all tracks" so there'll be tons of "exclusives" as they say. We did a test night a few weeks ago and I played a new mix of MIA's "Bamboo Banger" I made and Debbie Deb and like 3 Herve tracks, if that gives you any idea.

So, in exchange for a promise from you that you'll put on your snazziest T-shirt and come out on Thursday, here are a couple new mp3 items for your Zunes, in the vein of the kind of stuff we might play:

Lollipop Lil Wayne - "Lollipop" Remixes
Zshare link to RAR file with both mixes

I tried this two different ways: first up, doing my own bassline-style version (pilfering beats from the Twocker remix of 187 Lockdown's "Gunman"), and second, doing a slightly more mellow mix that uses the funky backing track from Mowgli's mix of In the Club's "Turn You On." That's data for the trainspotters. Casual fans, all you need to know is one's hyper, one's not quote so hyper. Of course when I made these I hadn't heard the Barletta mix, which is pretty awesome, so I suppose these are kind of superfluous, but whatever.
