“Hi there, i have just uploaded the july 08 mix, which (in my opinion) is absolutely my best mix so far, it got an heavy dark and pretty minimal touch aka fucking experimental thing.
It was made with 3 (yea, 3!) EKS OTUS (not mine unfortunately 🙁 ,available to buy from 1st sep) and 1 Korg miniKaoss pad (new arrive in my family :D). That was the most experimental & funny thing i have ever played out. About the tracklist, it’s full of mine remixes &/or re-edits that i made some times ago, i could do that for now just with this dark tech style, for example a kinda bloody beetroots track wouldn’t work on it in the way i was mixing but i’m very very very satisfied and happy with the final risult, i have to practice and optimize a lot now with this set-up again becouse i want it to be my live djset default set-up and obviously i still got to buy 3 of these wonderfull eks product.
The last track is a rmx i have done yesterday night on the Dusty Kid’s last track “America” (thanks to Pabs for this) with samples from Emanuele Inglese’s “old” hit “Camdentown” and its remix made by Andrea Bertolini. Before giving it out on blogs i want to master it with the X-Fi”technology coz i heard it’s pretty impressive. It was recorded in the Alba the producer’s studio.”

Looking at Music x MOMA


“In the 1960s, the decade that saw astronauts land on the moon, artists were likewise seeking to expand boundaries of time and space and to have new experiences. At the same time, portable video equipment reached the consumer market—suddenly simultaneity and “now,” the present and the past, became content. Musicians led the way in developing new working methods, and music was at the forefront of interdisciplinary experimentation during the early days of media art. This exhibition looks at the dynamic connections that occurred from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s with a display of early media works by Nam June Paik, Bruce Nauman, Steve Reich, Joan Jonas, Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, and David Bowie presented alongside related drawings, prints, and photographs by John Cage, Jack Smith, Ray Johnson, and others.”

Opens August 13. I will be there first thing when I get back to NYC.

Sébastien Tellier – Live @ The Mod Club – Toronto – 8.4.2008


Sébastien Tellier is so French. He is such a character. He posses a stage presence that is comedic yet somehow uber sexy. Those Europeans have it down. Sébastien Tellier’s show is over the top to the point that it is absurd. It was an emotional rollercoaster of pure pop bliss that oozed with sexuality to the saddest of love songs all laced with intertwining synth lines. Tellier showed the audience how much of Serge Gainsbourg every Frenchman posses. He kept the audience glued to him and his ridiculous cataract sunglasses, pink pants, and silver jacket. He is a fucking rockstar.

At first the show started off as pop as Justin Timberlake 🙂 with their great live rendition of Kilometer. Tellier’s band of 2 synth players and a drummer were so solid and segued into songs with ease. Divine highlighted how much of a show man Sebastien is with him jumping off stage and posing for photos in the audience. He is so absurd and comical that you cannot help but smile and laugh. After a few tunes off of Sexuality, the entire vibe of the show changes as the entire band goes into a tune called “Indians” (Any info on this?), it was an epic rocking tune that showed off how rock and roll Mr. Tellier could be. His drummer was especially amazing on this track. After being blown away by the epic musicianship Tellier sat behind the piano and went into a great rendition of Broadway.
Then came the tearjerker, La Ritournelle. In an interview with Tellier he describes La Ritournelle his closest he has come to perfection, “I have not reached that again. That song was written when I was in love with a girl who did not love me. That was a powerful state of emotions. That mix of happiness and sadness.” This is definitely one of the saddest things I have learned about this song, but it is still one of the most amazing songs I have heard in the past few years. The encore was Sexual Sportswear, his epic sounding tribute to Jean Michel Jarre. Since there are no vocals Tellier moaned and fondled the mic and mic stand for the audience. What an amazing and absurd show 🙂

David Byrne & Brian Eno – Strange Overtones

Brian Eno is a genius and has redeemded himself with this track after producing Coldplay’s latest album, which should have been so much better for being Eno produced. David Byrne & Brian Eno are a unstoppable collaboration. I love the classic 808 sounds during the 2nd verse. Fantastic lyrics as well. This is such a great pop song and I keep listening to it over and over, it is making me quite happy 🙂
