Justice: I Love Techno 2008 & Galaxy FM

Here are some new live mixes by Justice with their new Ableton setup. Interesting stuff, I think they are still getting a hang of their new setup so the mixing is ok. Any help with the tracklist would be great.

Justice – Live @ I Love Techno 2008 – 11.15.2008

Cheers to Soundcollector, check out their entire post of I Love Techno 2008 sets from LA Riots, Boys Noize and others.

Mayer Hawthorne & The County

A white boy from Detroit? 2008? Only Stone Throw Records could find such a gem of an artist in 2008. This track totally reminds me of the Delfonics. ill.

Thanks to the all mighty Pitchfork for hooking everyone up with this great remix of Cut Copy by Hercules and Love Affair. What a great angular bassline. It totally has a 70s No Wave, ESG/James Chance vibe.

Also from the Pitchfork front, Johnny Marr will be making a guest appearance on John Frusciante’s 10th album out 1.20.2009 on Record Collection Music entitled The Empyrean.

A Cross the Universe: Live Remixes

Jus†ice x Glenjamn x Hard Halloween

The Electro Banger scene has become quite stale and is just the same heavy distorted sound, but Justice has restored my faith in the power in loud electro bangers with these live Remixes/Revisions of “Phantom” and “One Minute to Midnight”. The duo have come a long way from their first live performances. They deconstruct, mix, and mash their own tracks in Ableton with such ease that it almost sounds like they are “playing” instruments. I am excited to hear what they have in store for the future. I am also very excited for the rest of this live album and the DVD. \m/

Phantom Part 1.5 sounds like Metallica meets Yellow Magic Orchestra & Rondo Veneziano.

Cazals in NYC

Cazals made their 2nd US appearance this past Thursday 11.6.08 in NYC at Hiro Ballroom with their label mates Fires of Rome. The:Hours Showcase was fantastic. Fires of Rome opened up the night and had the crowd going. Cazals came on and were super tight and left quite an impression on the crowd even though they were missing their keyboardist, once again. I was most impressed with how bombastically badass Warren the drummer is in keeping the band together. The entire rhythm section was super tight and are able to stop on a dime. Highlights of the set were “Both Sides” and “New Boy In Town”.

I hung out with boys after the show and headed to the Beatrice Inn where Luca spun a fantastic Italo Disco set. He dropped tracks like Azoto’s “San Salvador”, New Order’s “Blue Monday”, Chic’s “I Want Your Love” and of course Rick James’ “Super Freak” along with other amazing tracks from circa ’77 to ’81.
Azoto – San Salvador

Friday night Luca spun a heavy techno/fidget house set at The Annex where he apparently killed it.

Saturday night I met up with the guys and took Daniel and Luca around downtown NYC. I then met up with the rest of the guys at Le Poisson Rouge where Luca spun a great set including Federico Franchi’s “Cream” and SebastiAn’s “Motor”. We all then headed over to The Annex where Luca stepped up to the decks once again to close out the night with some electro bangers. He opened with Soulwax’s remix of Phantom Pt II which got the crowds attention. He dropped tracks like Boys Noize remix of Cuy Copy, Tiga’s remix of The Human League, Lifelike’s remix of “Somebody, Somewhere” and once again the amazing “Super Freak” by Rick James.

All the guys in Cazals and The:Hours, along with all their friends are super down to earth, chill people who all genuinely love music. They are all musical encyclopedias. Thanks to everyone at The:Hours, The Annex and the gentlemen in Cazals for showing me an awesome time. Expect a lot of great stuff from The:Hours and Cazals in the near future. Cheers 🙂
