We Are Standard x Dubka

I recently found this remix on Dubka’s myspace, a remix of We Are Standard’s “Last Time”. Dubka is so good at producing tracks that sound so 80s while not making them seem like a novelty thing. I particularly love how he transposes the vocals to sound like a woman. Also that synth guitar solo blows me away. Check out Dubka’s myspace to see what he is up to lately – currently he is producing Ali Love’s album, a synth pop odyssey that Giorgio Moroder would be proud of. Checkout “Smoke and Mirrors” here and “Diminishing Return” here.

Here is Dubka dropping some knowledge on how he achieved that crazy synth solo:

“The synth solo is just very fast programmed midi sent to the Commodore 64 synth I made. What makes it sound more guitar-like is the fact it’s going through an old Boss multi-effects box and I’m doing the pitch-bend live as it recording. The main sort of melodic theme is the same sound but it’s just played live.”

The Bloody Beetroots “Romborama” 8.25.2009

Dim Mak Presents August 25, 2009, The Bloody Beetroots “Romborama” – a 20 track magnum opus crafted by Mr. Bob Rifo & Tommy Tea. An album that comes at you hard and spans numerous genres. An album that says fuck you to everyone. Check out this tune featuring a fellow Italian, Cecile – a dark and trippy tune that takes you on a journey through the Beetroots’ more contemplative and musical side while still retaining that split at the seams energy. I cannot wait. <3 u Bob & Tommy.

Warp20 (New York) 9.4.2009 @ Terminal 5: Battles, !!!, Prefuse 73, & Pivot

Warp Records is my favorite label still around today that has proven itself as a label with longevity with the ability to find and foster amazing acts. From Aphex Twin, Jamie Lidell, Nightmares on Wax to Battles and Grizzly Bear – they are a label that understands great music and what it takes to allow these artists to grow and produce amazing music. I will definitely be at this show and am looking forward to some new music from Battles. This show is just a small part of the 3 day event in NYC celebrating Warp’s 20 year annivesary. Check out more Warp20 events here.

Asian Dan Interview: Pink Stallone

1. Who is Pink Stallone?

Pink Stallone is two jersey kids recording sound in the abandoned house of a science fiction writer (seriously).

A celebration of the failures of Futurism, in an abandoned house of a science fiction writer.

3. What is your first musical memory?

Like your first love, only much better.

4. What is the NJ music scene like and how does it feel to be getting more attention overseas?

There’s a NJ music scene? We normally stay inside. It appears as if like-minded individuals from all over the world have developed a heightened ability to locate one another, and we are grateful that such a process has enabled us to become part of a scene much larger and less literal.
