ANOTHER VIDEO, ANOTHER REMIX, ANOTHER NIGHT OUT, ANOTHER DANCE FLOOR
PB TexasSame old, same old. Hey, I made it back from Texas alive! And I actually had some really fun gigs over the Halloween weekend, so let me take a moment to give some shout outs: thanks to Chris and all the guys at Lotus in Dallas (plus kudos to the crowd for going all-out, costume-wise, the night before halloween), and big ups to Sean, Waxkin and Alex and everybody at Bambou and Venue in Houston. The latter had all sorts of super fancy video projectors, allowing the Party Ben Alive multimedia spectacular to go down without a hitch (and with much less effort than it took at Bootie in SF and LA, where we spent hours hanging screens and crap). Anyhoo, hooray Texas, although I didn't get any barbecue the entire time I was there, actually I did have one opportunity but it was right before a gig and I thought if I filled up on ribs I might just fall asleep on the CD players, so I went for a nice salad. So I guess I just have to plan another trip.

And hey, I made a video to my silly MIA remix, which I played in Texas, and you can watch it:

M.I.A. - "Paper Planes" Party Ben's Fly Like High Like Remix (vs Felipe Avelar)

I'd just like to make clear that much of the backing beat in this little jam is from Jeff T's remix of Felipe Avelar's "Electric Boogaloo." Mr. Avelar was nice enough to drop a line saying he'd heard the mix, and I was embarrassed to realize I hadn't credited him in my first post about it. I mean, my team of web editors forgot. You're all fired! So, go be his friend and buy his song on Beatport and stuff.

88 Also here's a new thing:

Dave Spoon - "88" (Party Ben's Class of '88 Remix)
11MB 256kbps mp3


I've been enjoying Mr. Spoon's weird amalgam of minimal techno and retro-rave for a while, so I thought I'd give a whirl at party-ing it up a bit, with a variety of sources I'm sure will be obvious.

CISPlus, I've got party updates: the next installment of me and MyKill's little Thursday night shindig over at Beauty Bar where we play whatever we want really and I get a chance to test out all the random electro-y edits and whatnot I make but aren't really Bootie-worthy, is tomorrow night. Call In Sick it's called, and we're always happy to see you. MyKill's making all these crazy Daft Punk-y tracks right now so you can hear those, and I've been really into random old disco lately so I'll be playing that. Okay then.

BootieNYEAlso, coming up Friday, December 5th, I'll be opening for two of my favorite DJs: Peanut Butter Wolf and Mike Relm. I'm not worthy, I know, but somehow I'm sneaking onto the bill. It's an event sponsored by the San Francisco Film Society so we'll all be doing the video thing,
which is fun, maybe I'll do a mashup of Man With a Movie Camera or something. This all goes down at Mezzanine, 12/5, and you can buy tickets here.

And finally, I can announce that Bootie will be having another New Year's Eve shindig this year at DNA Lounge. More info about that coming soon!

As always, please enjoy the Events page for any and all details regarding Party Ben appearances in your neighborhood.
