DJ Van Scott @ The Musuem of Natural History - May 30, 2008
DJ Van Scott

Last weekend (Friday in particular) was all about making decisions, which is one of my least favorite things to do, especially when choosing among bands/deejays playing at the same time. Friday I think I might have made the wrong decision. I went to One Step Beyond (which featured Switch and Van Scott) at the Museum of Natural History. I arrived around 10:30 or so and witnessed a great deejay set from Van Scott. It touched on a variety of styles, all highly danceable. The tracks were current, but not overplayed, and Van dropped some lesser known remixes of familiar tracks making for a very fun lead up to Switch.

Switch @ The Musuem of Natural History - May 30, 2008 (CRED)

I'd been looking forward to seeing Switch for months, but I found his set Friday night to be just ok. I wasn't hooked from the beginning and nothing he did brought me in until the last half hour. That's when he started teasing the crowd with "This is Sick", periodically sampling bits and pieces of it, not dropping the track until the very end of the night. When he finally did, it was loud and awesome and made me feel slightly less bad about my decision which made me miss tons of other things happening that night.

Goon & Koyote @ Love, NYC - May 30, 2008 (CRED)
Goon and koyote

When it was over, I found out that Escort still hadn't gone on at the Masonic Temple. I tried to make a mad dash to Brooklyn from the Upper Westside but the D train was not having it. I gave up at 2nd Ave, and instead caught the tail end of what I'm sure had been a great night of dance from Goon & Koyote at Love.

Luckily things already seem to be looking up this week. This Friday there are way fewer decisions to be made.....

Sally ShapiroSally ShapiroSally Shapiro

I got excited at first when I read this. I thought, "First Robyn, and now Sally Shapiro", but in fact the tour dates Sally Shapiro has just announced (Mercury Lounge on March 7th) are in fact JUST DJ DATES....

Acclaimed and ever-elusive Swedish pop princess Sally Shapiro, and her producer Johan Agebjörn, are very excited to announce their first-ever DJ Tour of the US and Canada in March of 2008. This rare set of live appearances by the winsome twosome comes in the wake of Sally's critically-lauded debut release of Disco Romance in the US, on Paper Bag Records. A remix album for Sally Shapiro, titled Remix Romance, is scheduled for release in Spring of 2008 on Paper Bag Records with contributions from the Junior Boys, and renowned Norwegian producer Lindstrøm, among others.
Dates below....

We missed out on the events previews last week...So, this being the somewhat official last weekend of summer: here's a rundown of NYC area events this week.

Get out there and shake it in the sunshine wearing white pants and get ready for a (great) winter inside the club.

Free BloodSATURDAY ATJ - day and night
I'm really proud to be associated with and playing at such a great event. If you haven't taken the time to read about the Bronx High School for the Visual Arts and their plans to beef up their music programs with the donations from the festival, please take a minute. Then buy a ticket and strap on your dancing shoes. Things are gonna get wild when the sun sets with The Virgins, Soulico, FREE BLOOD, and of course Riot in Belgium.

FRIDAY ATJ - on a roof
Friday Night Rooftop Musebox Kick-off Party with Luke Temple, Paul Duncan, Butane Variations, and DJ nonsense from me...which won't matter after you drink all the Free Beer.

Bruno on a boatSUNDAY AFTJ - on a boat while the sun sets
People Don't Dance No More (my party) + Finger on the Pulse are getting together to throw a wrap up boat party on Sunday at 6 pm. We have a super huge guest DJ duo joining us on the boat and we'll be cruising and grooving til 10 pm. Tickets should be on Ticketweb, but get to the boat around 6 pm and you should be fine. $15 is cheaper than a Circle Line cruise and you get to hang out with your friends, not your cousins from Ohio. All proceeds from the party are of course going to the kids, so spread the word and help pack the boat. Pictures from our last boat outing are here and here. Don't miss out on the last one of the summer!

Email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: jump) for a chance to win one of TEN PAIRS of combo tickets to the After the Jump night party, and Sunday's Boat Party. Tell us which band are you most looking forward to seeing at ATJ (and your first and last name for guestlist).

The show of the season at last year's PS1's Warm Up was definitely Escort. They are back again this year to glitter their way through new material and turn the sun into a giant discoball hanging over the courtyard. This is your last chance to dance at PS1. Next weekend goes to the rockers.

Other dancing to be done:

UnderworldKarl Hyde (vocalist, Underworld) on Underworld's "Born Slippy" from an article in The Guardian:

We used to go out drinking in Soho and I ended up in the Ship on Wardour Street. All the lyrics were written on that night. A drunk sees the world in fragments and I wanted to recreate that...Rick [Smith] came up with a rhythm and I started singing over it. The vocals were done in one take. When I lost my place, I'd repeat the same line; that's why it goes, "lager, lager, lager, lager"... Why Born Slippy? It was a greyhound we won money on.
As previously reported, Underworld is going out on tour and will be hitting Central Park on September 14th. TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE. The boys will be joined by Border Community's James Holden. Stay tuned for info on when Underworld will be releasing a single from their forthcoming album. If you haven't caught up with Underworld in a while, I highly recommend checking out their epic digital-only RiverRun singles.

:DFA FREAKOUT: James is a disco guy:
LCD SOUNDSYTEM live at Studio B? BANANAS. Total destruction ensues. Studio B might not be standing after this goes down. DFA DJs and mayhem.

Earplug sat down with James Murphy and he makes a really great recommendation for fans new to dance music:

Read Last Night a DJ Saved My Life by Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton. Read the disco sections and check the playlists in the back, like those from Paradise Garage, the Loft, the Funhouse, and the Palladium. It was a real eye-opener for me. There are top-10 and top-20 lists from amazing DJs of that era who were really adventurous and took chances. Just track those songs down and see what you like. It's a really great history of disco and of dance music.

Big Stereo wrote, "Muscles is my new favorite artist thanks to recent spins on Whothehell.net and Kiss Atlanta. And judging from Hype Machine I am totally late on this game. You know you’re late when Fluxblog has hit a band not once but twice. AND I don’t know how I missed Muscles the first three times Fluokids posted, but I digress…"

Muscles "emerging from the underground"

F'd Up are no longer opening for Art Brut (and in turn Soulwax). They were supposed to or something, but now O'Death is opening instead which is actually more awesome kind of. O'Death then play NYU with Battles and the Dirty Projectors the next night (btw, NYU students can also now buy tickets for the Thermals and Hold Steady).

And if you're just going to Soulwax at 11, don't be late (like Big Stereo - see above) - Modular's newest signing from Australia Muscles is opening the show (and all Radio Soulwax shows on this tour). Listen to Muscles at MySpace (or use one of the links above to get MP3s).

The dance world typically gathers steam in the US in March, with Winter Music Conference held in Miami, and the increasingly dance-populated SXSW, many labels and producers tour their beat-laden wares come spring. This Spring is no different and NYC will host almost all the top upcoming talent in the month of March.

WMC happens in Miami March 20th through March 25th. The list of events is here. I'll post highlights in a few weeks.

Two zeitgeist-y days in March see the dance world collide in NYC. There is a line in the sand...

Booka Shade
Booka Shade

Thursday March 15th
* Cut NYC returns at Studio B with Booka Shade Live
* Institubes vs. Boys Noize at Hiro with Para One, Boys Noize, & Curses!

Booka Shade, along with M.A.N.D.Y., and the rest of the Get Physical label were THE sound of 2005. Penning minimally melodic stormers that rocked every genre of dancefloor, Booka Shade arguably put on the best show of WMC 2006 at the Fixed/Revolver party.

Boys NoizeInstitubes is the reserved cousin to Paris' Ed Banger Records. Their roster includes Tacteel, Para One, Das Glow, Surkin, Bobmo, & (NYC'er) Curses!, all who blur the lines between hip-hop, techno, and rave. They will all be on the tip of your tounge in 2007. Boys Noize and the output of his self-titled label have been crafting a hard edged, drum centric version of the current electro sound of dance, evidenced by THAT remix of "Banquet" that you hear every weekend. Besides Bloc Party, BN has remixed much of the indierati: Kaiser Chiefs, Tiga, Shiny Toy Guns, Living Things, and (!) Depeche Mode.

And another complicated night that needs no explanation for readers of this fine site:

Saturday March 31st
* LCD Soundsystem at Bowery Ballroom
* Datarock, Lo-Fi-Fnk, & the Presets at Fixed at Studio B
* John Digweed & MSTRKRFT tour hits Pacha

Less of a decision TONIGHT (Feb 22)....

ModularBrooklyn Wasted Youth

The always wonderful Modular Monthly happens tonight at Galapagos in Brooklyn. Hometown hero Drop The Lime destroys it live, along with the art dance craze of Dandi Wind, and they JUST ADDED Chicago crew Walter Meego. This is the spot tonight.

Switch @ Cielo, NYC - Feb 8, 2007
Switch @ Cielo

Switch killed it last week at Cielo. Using a fully loaded Ableton Live setup, he twisted and chopped the familiar into the brand new. Fidget house is what they call it, and it truly is completely ADD, rarely consistent for more than a few minutes. Coolest thing about Switch is how he really crosses scenes/genres with ease. He had indie kids, hip-hop dudes, and house-heads bouncing like mad. I hear he'll be making a few US stops mid-March. Stay tuned.

Lindstrom @ Studio B, NYC - Feb 10, 2007
Lindstrom @ Studio B

Saturday night saw Lindstrom bring his space disco live show to Studio B. I was really blown away with how banging his set turned out at the club. Even taking a listen to the live set I posted last week, I wasn't sure if it would really move the masses at Studio B. To everyones delight, space disco sounds more like Astro Techno on a huge sound system. Studio B was PACKED with crazy kids really getting into his sound. JDH & Dave P keep the momentum going on Feb 23rd with special guests OPTIMO.


  • Resident Advisor reviews Gui Borato's new disc for Kompakt

  • Mr. Soft at TAPE lists his top tracks of the moment

  • The Captain (of Cut, Mad Suspect, and Dirty Down fame) is starting a very cool interview series with some of New York's brightest stars in the burgeoning homegrown dance scene. His first target is Mathhead

There were so many good shows happening in NYC Saturday night (Feb 10, 2007) - Lifetime @ Bowery Ballroom, !!! @ Maxwell's (NJ), Vetiver & Vashti Bunyan @ Southpaw, Lindstrom @ Studio B, and Lily Allen @ Webster Hall to name a few. I stuck with just going to the Plug Awards.

How was Lily? Joly sent me a link to this cool pic:

DOWNLOAD: Lindstrom Live at Club Caviar, Gothenburg Aug 3, 2006 (MP3)

Lots of dance related madness hitting NYC in the next 6 weeks. I'll highlight some of the bigger names making their way to the 5 boroughs in upcoming editions.

This weekend: Comb your moustache and put on your sunglasses: this is disco.

LindstromThe mythical Disco Viking, Hans-Peter Lindstrom hits the Fixed party at Studio B on Saturday night. Not only is his visit to these parts very rare, he's going to rock a live set.

For those of you unfamiliar with Lindstrom, he and his sometime collaborator Prins Thomas, have crafted a signature sound out of epic, spaced out disco. Their production work over the past 3 years has helped stimulate the disco revival currently sweeping dancefloors of the globe. (Visit our friend Tim Sweeney for an extensive collection of disco-y Beats in Space shows.)

LindstromAlong with the massive hit "I Feel Space" (remix for download over at la Decadanse), Lindstrom has rerubed Franz Ferdinand, LCD Soundsystem, Roxy Music, and Freeform Five.

Lindstrom's new album Its a Feedelity Affair is an excellent example of Lindstrom for the dancefloor, as opposed to some of his Lindstrom for the headphones work. Highly recommended.

Lindstrom: Middle, Left, Right
Feb 8 2007 Funky Buddha lounge / Chicago
Feb 9 2007 Mezzanine / San Francisco
Feb 10 2007 Studio B / New York City

John Digweed @ The Showbox

Indie Club (aka the Diamonds 07 tour)

I come from the progressive house/trance scene of the mid to late nineties, but the convergence of John Digweed and MSTRKRFT (they're touring together) is one I'm looking forward to.

John Digweed (of Sasha & Digweed fame) is a phenomenal DJ, and has been responsible for groundbreaking music, arguably the first DJ mix compilation, and spreading electronic music (and the Superstar DJ phenomenon) to more of the globe than all but Carl Cox and Sasha. Digweed's record label Bedrock has been a very consistent source of progressive electronic club tracks, with releases by Nick Muir, Hernan Cattaneo, Misstress Barbara, and more. I've seen him DJ many times, and his technical skill and musical taste level is really incredible, but very much rooted in "pure" electronic genres.

MSTRKRFT on the other hand have a somewhat different cache in the dance scene. Spawned from the ashes of Death From Above 1979, the group's remixes of indie rock singles have catapulted them to the forefront of the indie dance/rocklectro movement. MSTRKRFT is more likely to be heard coming off the lips of a kid leaving a Metric show in Austin than a clubber coming out of Crobar at 10 am. Not to say that they aren't rising stars in the larger electronic spectrum - their LP The Looks was a fantastic slice of the sound of 2006, but definitely no Homework.

Let's discuss this pairing.
Will you go see them? Is it happening in a club you regulary attend? I'm guessing not. New Yorkers - will you go to Pacha for this? Have you heard of John Digweed?

Tour dates at the end of this post.

And who's coming to Miami?
