Friday night (August 1st) one of the bigger dance events happening is Booka Shade at the Fillmore at Irving Plaza. Walter and Arno have been working on their own music together since the 90's as well as producing for a number of artists on Berlin-based, underground dance label (which they co-founded with M.A.N.D.Y. and DJ T), Get Physical. I have not seen them before, but have often heard their live performances compared to Soulwax's (who are here next Wednesday! Get tickets!) which I always consider to be a good thing. If it's an accurate comparison you should be in for a night of absolutely losing it on the dancefloor.
Best Music TrendMore of Busy P's picks @ XLR8R where they also happened to declare Justice's † one of the worst albums of 2007. Was the recent Jusice DJ set at Bowery Ballroom any good? Decide for yourself. FADER has it (or some of it?) for download at their site.

DAFT PUNK IS ON...
I'm sure you already know that Daft Punk recorded their 1st show on this latest string of live dates at the Paris Bercy back in June. I'm also sure that you know that Daft Punk just released this recording as Daft Punk Alive. What you might not have known (if you didn't read the live webchat on Wednesday) is that the INSANE (TOGETHER!) mashup that DP play as their encore is not included on Alive. It is available on the deluxe edition which is $15.99 here. And to celebrate....

CONTEST 2: The rad doods from Fixed (JDH + DAVE P) have given us two pairs of tickets to the next edition of Fixed with Tiefschwarz on Saturday December 8th at Studio B. Email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: FIXED) with your name for that random drawing. Same deal, Thursday winners will be emailed.
Tiefschwarz are two brothers from Germany that have been making house music since they were born. I first heard of them when they were putting out sublime deep house cuts around 1997 or 1998. Around 2002 - 2003, their sound turned a bit bigger, more electrofied, slightly insane, and clubby. They blew up. They also most likely influenced a lot of the crunchier music you are hearing in clubs these days (and your sweethearts Justice). You have no doubt caught drift of their remixes for Goldfrapp, The Rapture, Depeche Mode, Kelis, Freform Five, and their own massive tracks including "Warning Siren" with Mattie Safer from the Rapture on vocals. Party starting is not something Ali and Basti are opposed to... -David
Tickets are also on sale for two screenings of Daft Punk's film Electroma at Music Hall on December 22nd (you may have seen it already in August). The NYC shows are part of a movie tour. All dates, the trailer and a lot more pictures of people dressed like Daft Punk, below....
