BOSTON, HERE I COME; NEW TRACKS, HERE THEY ARE
PB AliveLong-winded commentary, here it is. New Englanders! Put down your chowdah and listen up! I'll be making my debut Massachusets DJ appearance this coming Tuesday at Bootie Boston, one of two East Coast outposts of that venerable bastard pop disco dance party. Also in the hizzay will be Boston superstars like DJ BC, Lenlow, the lovely and talented Kenlow, as well as technical support from Adambalm, who seems a little more concerned than I am about hooking up all the video stuff. Video stuff, you said? Yes, that's right, I'll be performing a slightly-updated version of the Party Ben Alive all-video mashup experience, which may be nearing the end of its shelf life as a concept but I figure I get a good year out of my goofy ideas, and at least I'm not wearing an Obi Wan Kenobi robe around any more, right? Anyway, hooray Boston, it all happens at Middlesex Lounge (which is technically in Cambridge) on Tuesday night. Hey, I was pretty popular in Ireland for about 15 minutes, so I should be okay there, right?

Anyway, what else. Everybody sick of my electro-style dancey bootlegs will be even more annoyed since I'm going to post a couple new dancey tracks right now. Neither are really that exciting but they might be useful for other DJs.

MIA M.I.A. - "Paper Planes" (Party Ben's Fly Like High Like Remix)
Download: 11MB 256kbps mp3
Listen:


Wow, so MIA's like a Top 5 Artist in the US of A, how neat is that? Now I've done a lot of other MIA mixes so I think the fact that I'm like a year late to a Paper Planes mix can be excused, can't it? Anyway this is pretty straightforward: get in at dance tempo, slow down for some MIA, speed back up to dance tempo, crowd goes wild or maybe just goes to get a drink.

Mars Fake Blood vs. Purple Ribbon All-Stars - "On Mars All Night"
Download: 7MB 256kbps mp3
Listen:


Wanting to play that Fake Blood track out at the clubs but feel like the lack of vocals makes it a little too tough of a sell? Hey, let's add a space-referencing rap (Kryptonite is from space, right?) and get the party started. Or, just play the original, since it's freakin' awesome. Whatever, I don't care.

See you Tuesday, Boston!
