You Just Can’t Take A Bad Picture of The Persian Prince

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

Well, actually you can. But this one of him from a few weeks ago is pretty good.

The Birthday Girl (behind him) also looks pretty good.

Anyways, here are some tracks from that night:

Ladyhawke - Paris Is Burning (Cut Copy Remix)

Ladyhawke - Paris is Burning

Bag Raiders - Sneaky Dub

CSS - Move (Cut Copy Remix)

PNAU featuring LadyHawke - Embrace

Ghettotech in Toronto?

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

What’s going to be good this week? Probably Syntonics at Supermarket on Friday, November 7th.

Anyone that describes themselves as “Ghettotech” probably can’t be that bad.

I found a couple of their tracks kicking around - they’re defs worth a listen

Syntonics - Droppin’ That Bomb (Gingy Remix)

You can listen to a few more here, or and it looks like they’ve got an album for sale at Electrobounce.

Taking Care Of Business

So I checked out the Cadence Weapon show in Toronto last Thursday, and have to say that I’m now a fan. I hadn’t heard anything by him, but he came recommended by the Persian Prince himself so for $12 at Lee’s Palace, how could I go wrong? I couldn’t, and part of the reason was because he reminds me of Tracy Morgan.

While the video for Real Estate is pretty good (thanks to The Tape for the find), the track is actually begging to be put over top of a re-purposed clips from Glengarry Glen Ross. If I had a video editing program, I’d probably do it myself.

But since I don’t, you might as well check out this 40 minute mix of house music “hosted” by Alec Baldwin clips from Glengarry (via the always-entertaining Canuckflack).

Cadence Weapon - House Music (A1 Bassline Remix)

Anyways, I gotta dedicate this post to my boy Davey Boy Taylor holdin’ down the real estate game, Van-City style.

There’s more of Roland Pemberton (aka Cadence Weapon) on MySpace or his official site.

Man, after that earlier post about White Collar Wu-Tang and now this one, it feels like it is Take Your Rapper To Work Week or something.

She Lights Up The Night

As much as I hate to post a video with out a related audio file, I couldn’t resist this one:

LIGHTS - Drive My Soul (official music video)

According to a poster I walked by on College Street this morning, she’s going to be at the Mod Club on Friday. It’s a six pm show, so I don’t know if I can be bothered.

Dark Techno for a Rainy Day

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

A little while ago, I downloaded this track from the Curb Crawlers and listened to it over and over again. Its dark and disturbing and creepy, kind of like H.R. Giger artwork.

Kevin Saunderson - Just Want Another Chance (John Tjeda Remix)

Check out The Curb Crawlers blog and join their Facebook group. They throw some pretty good parties. Once I showed up at the end of one and picked up a chick.

Some Deadly Drums.

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Dmoney says that Drums of Death is coming to Toronto this Friday and that you should “Go to the show so you can tell all your friends next year that you were into him before he blew the fuck up. ”

We looked up some of his shit, and it is fully sick.

Lesser Panda - Carousel (Drums of Death Remix)

Tricky - Council Estate (Drums of Death Remix)

See you at CiRCA on Friday.

Pure Santogold

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

I saw the Santogold/Diplo album “Top Ranking”in a store a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it.

On Saturday, it was mine and rumour has it she’ll be in Toronto tonight. I’m playing in a soccer game, so I probably won’t go but enjoy this track courtesy of Leather Canary or find more Santogold here, Diplo here.

Santogold - Shuv it (Disco D blend)

ZoidbergA few months ago, my friend Nick got me super into mashups and just recently told me about DJ Lobster Dust.

Nick also told me that Mashup Mondays at Toronto’s Rockwood Club are pretty good. I’m going to hit it up sometime in the next few weeks and I’ll let you know what the go is.

Everybody Do it Again - Jay-Z, Amil vs. Missy Vs. The Chemical Brothers (DJ Lobster Dust mashup)


Red Hot T-Dot

This weekend is going to be huge for Toronto.

On Friday, those Curb Crawlers bitches are going to be hosting a party at Levack Block with the UK’s Scott Cooper. If their promises and multiple Facebook messages about the event are anything to go by, this is going to be the party of the century.

If it’s not, there is always the free Crystal Castles (we posted about them here) and Thunderheist show on Saturday night at the Harbourfront Center.

Here’s some tracks to get you going:

Crystal Castles - Untrust Us


Thunderheist - Jerk It (Jokers of the Scene Remix)


South Rakkas Crew - Mad Again (Scott Coop Boot)

At, we love banging beats almost as we much the undead and that’s why we were stoked when we say the poster above promoting Egyptrixx and SEK ONE with some other guys.

To get you fired up, here’s a track from Egyptrixx courtesy of Creamteam.TV


More Egyptrixx here and here, plus you might as well check out what SEK ONE is doing at the always-popular Curb Crawlers blog.
