Feadz @ Webster Hall - April 17, 2009
There was a lot happening last week in dance. The amount of great options for Friday alone was overwhelming...there was Flying Lotus and Kode9 at AMNH and the Juan Maclean (who recently added a NY tour date with the Field) played Le Poisson Rouge.
I opted to go to Webster Hall to see Feadz and Etienne De Crecy. Feadz literally bounced his way through his entire set which included a bunch of recent electro, and a little bit of this and that thrown in...all of which he manipulated and tweaked to perfection. Partial setlist (and much, much more) below...
"Though promoters around the country report strong early ticket sales for festivals and summer tours, the recession is causing jitters. This year Coachella, which has the most glamorous reputation of all American festivals, began selling tickets on layaway, and 18 percent of its customers took that option, Mr. Tollett said.With all the leaks of bands playing Lollapalooza this year, there are almost no surprises in the official lineup announcement, except maybe the Animal Collective DJ set... The whole thing below...
The proliferation of big festivals, like Bonnaroo near Nashville and Lollapalooza in Chicago, has not been without casualties. This year Langerado in Miami shut down, citing the economy. The Pemberton Festival in British Columbia is on hiatus after only one year, although its promoter, Live Nation, said the problem was permit delays." [NY Times]
Simian Mobile Disco @ Mess With Texas 2008 (more by Ryan Muir)
Simian Mobile Disco is the first act we can confirm that is playing the Williamsburg Waterfront this summer. As you might remember, the waterfront is McCarren Park Pool's free show location replacement. The pair will DJ the spot on Sunday, August 9th. Okay, it's only a DJ gig, but still good to hear things are happening at the venue.

Classixx @ the Studio @ Webster Hall - March 10, 2009 (CRED)
I was out of town last weekend and unfortunately missed all the awesome acts that came through New York. I managed to make it out Tuesday night for the Scion party, but was feeling tired and not too into it. You already know how I feel about Hearts Revolution and nothing about their performance on Tuesday changed that. I caught some of Classixx's set before I left, which started off with some mellow, almost loungey disco before quickly working up to some very danceable tracks from the likes of Holy Ghost, Mylo, Sebastien Tellier, Ce Ce Peniston, and Alan Braxe & Fred Falke. Tuesday night helped take the edge off, but I am really, really looking forward to a lot that's happening this weekend. Friday night (3/13) there is way too much good stuff going on.
Been meaning to post this Simian Mobile Disco tour for a while - when the April 24th NYC show was still scheduled for Studio B. It's since been moved to Highline Ballroom and is still on sale. Last week they debuted a new song called "Synthesise" in a video. Watch it, and all dates, below...

Ulrich Schnauss @ Webster Hall - November 7, 2008
The past few weeks have been amazing dance-wise. Perhaps it was only a matter of time before there was some type of lull. I wouldn't say last week was bad...just nothing like the few weeks before. I started last week off early Thursday night at Hiro for the Hours showcase which featured Fires of Rome and Cazals. I only caught the last few songs of Fires' of Rome set, but their playing was tight and sounded very true to their album which somehow combines elements of classic rock with hints of 60's/70's and a bit of dance. Going into the evening I was more familiar with Cazals and like their material better than Fires' of Rome, but overall wasn't that engaged by their performance, though their playing was good, and the live versions of their tracks "Somebody Somewhere", "Poor Innocent Boy", and "Both Sides" were excellent and really stood out. The rest of the tracks however, just seemed to breeze right by. In all fairness, Cazals' keyboardist was absent, which I imagine took a way some of the more electronic/dance elements of their sound. Overall it was a decent night, just a little less dancey than I would have liked.

Gogol Bordello @ Irving Plaza (more by Jefferson)
The second edition of this controversial new feature is back. "It's Not Selling Out Anymore" (or is it?)...
Aggressive racing game, Motorstorm, was one of the most successful titles for the Playstation 3 in 2007 (selling over three million copies world wide). It was only natural then, that Sony Computer Entertainment would get a sequel out in 2008. Enter Motorstorm: Pacific Rift. The game recently hit shelves in the US at end of October and in the UK this past week. The TV spot announcing the new game brilliantly matched Motorstorm's crazy, edgy style of racing on tracks in exotic locations with the "authentic energy" of Gogol Bordello's "Wonderlust King." Watch the video of the commercial below. Gogol Bordello tour dates are HERE.
While Gogol did not make the in-game soundrack, David Bowie, Clutch, Megadeth, The Hives, Simian Mobile Disco, Death From Above 1979, and more all made the cut. Eight of the forty-five songs are exclusive to the game including a remix by Diplo of Nirvana's "Swap Meet" *.
Speaking of exclusives, The Ramones' classic jam "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker" was covered by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and singer Jemina Pearl (from the now defunct Be Your Own Pet). Their version exclusively premiered in this past week's episode of Gossip Girl. Love & Rockets made the episode too...though not as an exclusive.
Other Notable Licensing News:
On the tube, One Tree Hill had songs by Ra Ra Riot and Margot & the Nuclear So-So's; 90210 had Florence & The Machine, The Raconteurs, and The Bravery; Grey's Anatomy had The Bird And The Bee, Whitest Boy Alive, and Brett Dennon.
M83's "You, Appearing" provides a solemn background to a French commercial for Douleurs' "Pain Without Borders" commercial. Watch the video below. M83 is currently on a tour of the US (and in NYC this week).
Cadbury's new "Favourites" commercial features the song "Stars and Sons" by Canadian supergroup Broken Social Scene. Watch the video below. Pics from the band's recent show at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple can be seen HERE.
Supreme continues its love for musical collaborations with the announcement of a Bad Brains x Supreme collection. The line consists of a couple hoodies, a t-shirt, and two different styles of Vans shoes. Bad Brains have been busy lately playing shows in Austin, NYC and elsewhere.
Vans recently released its fourth Iron Maiden tribute shoe, this time featuring the artwork from the Powerslave album. The Sk8-Hi and slip on models are available at the vans online store as well as local distributors.

The Sonics rolled back the years during their highly anticipated comeback set at Primvera Sound, as old met new at the eclectic festival. The punk pioneers played a hit heavy set on day two of the festival (Friday), wowing the Barcelona audience with classics including 'Strychnine' and 'The Witch'.The 2008 Primavera Sound Festival happened in Barcelona this past weekend. I just posted a bit about Portishead, and some Atlas Sound and El Guincho too. The rest of what we've got is below....
Playing a rare festival show as part of their comeback tour, the Seattle band headed up a line up packed with returning legends.
Earlier on, the Bob Mould Band raced through favourites from the singer's former bands, Sugar and Husker Du, including 'Hoover Dam' and 'Hardly Getting Over It'.
Post punk trailblazers Devo received one of the best receptions of the festival so far, with a set as tight as their trademark yellow jumpsuits - which were disgarded towards the end of the show.
Spanish favourites Sebadoh made their return to the Barcelona festival to perform their debut album 'The Freed Man'.
And Portishead played their second set of the festival, following on from Thursday's showstopper, this time in the indoors Auditori. [Virtual Festivals][

We're in the last week of March dance madness. Despite it seeming like every good deejay is down in Miami for WMC the line-up in New York this weekend is surprisingly awesome.
Thursday night (March 27) New York's Cut celebrate their 3-year anniversary bringing French electro label Institubes here to host the Paris Terror Club at Studio B. Cut has done a lot over the past 3 years to bring some of the top dance music talent to New York. You can check out a short video about them and what they do here.
Para One is a great producer out of France. He got people moving with his album 'Epiphanie' in 2006, specifically with the smash hit ' Dundun-Dun'. He's done production for French rap act TTC in the meantime, as well crafted a beautiful soundtrack (a great departure from his dancefloor jams) for the French film 'La Naisssance Des Pieuvres'. No stranger to manipulating beats, expect a clean set full of knob-twisting from Para One that will leave you with no option but to get down.
Surkin and Bobmo are two very young, successful deejays out of France. At ages 22 and 17, each of them has already produced some great tracks. Bobmo recently followed up last year's 'Let's Go Bobmo EP' (featuring the B-more/electro hit 'To the Bobmobile') with his '3000% Yes EP' which has more of an electro-ravey feel (be sure to check out the great track 'Legally Dead for 4'31'). Surkin's 'Ghetto Obsession' and 'Radio Fireworks', as well as his countless remixes have been devastating dancefloors over the past year. In the meantime he's been working on his follow-up, the 'Next of Kin EP' due out on Institubes shortly. The cover art features a black knight printed on a silver foil pattern, designed by Gaspirator who you might know better as Gaspard Auge (the moustached half of Justice). The EP features equally impressive tracks:
A1 White Knight Two$10 advance tickets available here, $15 tickets at the door, AND.....we have three pairs of tickets to give away courtesy of Cut & Finger on the Pulse (who are coordinating this contest and who are celebrating a birthday of their own this weekend). To win a pair of tickets, be one of the first 3 people to email them now (subject: cut).

Cut Copy @ Mercury Lounge, NYC - Mar 17, 2008 (Tixgirl)
This week in dance kicked off with a great show on Monday at the Mercury Lounge with the NYC-debut of Spain's el Guincho and a set by Australia's brilliant, live electro band Cut Copy.
The band has a refreshingly straightforward style about sharing their electro-rock tracks, offering little in the way of theatrics. But lead vocalist, keyboardist and guitarist Dan Whitford is willing to offer his appreciation to the crowd and acknowledge the impending electro climaxes, giving the audience the green light to go nuts-and it works. [TheMusic.FM]If you missed them, they're back in May, and this weekend looks equally promising with some big names passing through town.
In addition to the great Palms Out Sound showcase going on at Luna Lounge tonight (Thursday March 20), Musebox is holding their monthly at 205 featuring Pink Skull, James F!@$%^ Friedman and Johnny Cocco, and it's $5 at the door or free if you RSVP now at email@example.com. While Pink Skull is just deejaying, and not doing one of their energetic live performances, the band's diverse influences, numerous side projects, and recent remixes should provide the makings of a good set.
Just a few days after this show Brooklyn-based independent 12" and digital-only label the Savant Guard will make it's worldwide debut release with Pink Skull's single 'Drugs Will Keep Us Together' on March 24th. It will feature the original version of the track along with a remix that New York's own 33Hz did with Ming (from dj duo Ming+FS). Fidget house master Trevor Loveys also puts his own spin on the track. You can download the original version over at Missingtoof and stream the remixes here.

QUESTIONS: What is the difference between Simian & Simian Mobile Disco? What does any of it have to do with Justice? And who the hell are The Black Ghosts?
Simian were an English electro-rock band, best-known for their song "La Breeze", which was featured in the Peugeot 1007 commercial. The members are Simon William Lord, James Ellis Ford, Alex MacNaghten & James Anthony Shaw. Their second album "We Are Your Friends" was produced by ambient music composer and producer for U2 and Talking Heads, the famed Brian Eno............In 2006, "We Are Your Friends", a remix of their song "Never Be Alone" was released.....This single was credited to "Justice vs. Simian" and started life as a submission by the French electro outfit Justice in a remix competition. The video for the single won the award for best video at MTV Europe Video Awards 2006......Simian split up in 2005 with Ford and Shaw forming the splinter group Simian Mobile Disco. The new group is more dance oriented and are in demand as remixers and DJs. Lord now is in The Black Ghosts, an electronica act with DJ Touche from The Wiseguys. [Wikipedia]And now you know (in case you didn't).
ONE MORE FUN FACT! - Simon William Lord (now in The Black Ghosts) was the vocalist in Simian, and so it is his voice singing in "Because we are your friends you'll never be alone again well come on well come on well come on well come on......
Stream a Black Ghosts DJ mix HERE AND HERE. You can also get their mixes for free on iTunes. Download MP3s above. Get their I AM SOUND debut EP ("Anyway You Choose To Give It") when it is released on October 30th.
And see The Black Ghosts for the first time when they make their U.S. debut in NYC this year for CMJ. So far they're DJing (I think it's all DJing) at least four events - the Syndicate party at Rebel on October 15th, the Magnum PR showcase at the Delancey on October 17th, the "I Heart" showcase at Angel Orensanz on October 18th, AND..........the free BrooklynVegan party happening at Pianos during the day on October 17th (DJ set from 4-5 pm - in the bar). More details on that to be announced shortly (save the date!).

SMD @ Gramercy Theatre, NYC - Sept 15, 2007 (CRED)
Adam Kesher @ Knitting Factory, NYC - Sept 10, 2007 (CRED)
Those of you who missed Adam Kesher's NYC debut on Monday night are going to have to wait through a long, cold Adam Kesher-less winter as the band heads into the studio to complete their debut LP upon their return to France on Thursday.
I'll cut to the chase. Having only heard Adam Kesher's cover of Para One's "Dun-dundun", I thought it'd be a fun gig to drop by and wasn't expecting much as I admittedly don't frequent venues to see bands. Instead I was awed, absolutely starstruck, completely floored, stupified even! The songs, the actual performance and showmanship which included some heavy fancy footwork and instrument rotations... it just all coalesced into a supercharged set that left the room, which wasn't even packed to capacity, dense with energy.Their new songs incorporate everything from hip-hop beats, to harmonized and glistening pop vocals, to shredding punk riffs, a cowbell, and of course, a dancey swagger. The boys head home to France on Thursday, but will be laying down a DJ set tonight at the Calvin Harris Afterparty at Happy Ending. Buy them a drink ask them to come back sooner.
Speaking of Calvin Harris, the UK dance sensation has been in town hustling the press circuit in anticipation of his sold out US debut at the Mercury Lounge tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing how the album translates live and I imagine the infectious grooves will have all the girls dancing like crazy. Haven't heard it yet? AOL is streaming the whole thing this week.
I finally got my hands on a copy of Underworld's new album Oblivion With Bells and I couldn't be more excited to see Rick and Karl rip Summerstage apart on Friday night. From even before I heard the first bassline, I haven't been able to shake comparisons to my first encounter with Underworld, 1993's "debut" dubnobasswithmyheadman. The minute I saw the album artwork I've associated the album to that other chaotically black and white designed disc. I don't think the comparison stops at the visual elements. The album is decidedly dark and distinctly Underworld, with pulsing rhythms and conceptually poetic lyrics, but some tracks delve into more atmospheric and funky melodic soundscapes that remind me of the album progression and urban feel of their earlier disc. Stay tuned for an interview with Karl next week: we'll get into all that. The latest tour dates are at their site.
Simian Mobile Disco bring their mobile live rave and light live show back to NYC this weekend on Saturday night at Gramercy Theater. If you missed their stellar Studio B gig, get to this one. It will be a good musical benchmark for next weekend's Chemical Brother's double header: one indoors midtown, one outdoors pool. The pool show also features Ladytron. All CB tour dates in a previous post, and don't forget SMD will be at CMJ too.
Larry Tee is gonna be busy this month. He's launching TWO new parties this weekend at Sugarland (221 N. 9th St in Williamsburg). Clever readers will note that 221 N. 9th is indeed the old Capone's and its not all going to the boys. While Fridays are the aptly named "BOYQUAKE," Saturday is the more mixed Happy Birthday Club.
Time Out also catches up with Larry as he is launching the multi-day Dance Music Invasion 2007 in just a few weeks on October 3 - 6. Ferry Corsten, Erick Morillo, and Christopher Just are the only confirmed artists. Stay tuned to the official website for more news.
Diplo and Switch are going out on tour together, they hit Studio B for Meanred's Korupt night on Saturday Sept. 29th (rescheduled from Sept 08th). Pitchfork sat down with Diplo to discuss the tour, his work with Switch, and his Pitchfork Mix (MP3), very cool that he gives Drop the Lime a shout out.
Heading out to Austin this weekend for the Austin City Limits Festival? Grizzly Bear and Art Brut not your thing? Can't decide between M.I.A. and LCD Soundsystem? Well, maybe see M.I.A. in the day, and then check out LCD Soundsystem at night - Friday night at Red 7.
Or see LCD Soundsystem twice. UPDATE: Thanks commenters for bringing up the fact that the "LCD Soundsystem" set is only a DJ set.

Daft Punk @ Keyspan Park, Coney Island, NYC - Aug 9, 2007 *
* photo by Phillip Angert
Daft Punk: What an incredible celebration of the power of electronic music. I can't say I've ever seen so many people dancing and smiling in New York. Whatever your background, whatever your experience with dance music, I think we all we were on the same page on Thursday night. I dance often, and I haven't danced that hard in a long time. You all know that dance music is awesome, but dance music with Robots, Pyramids, Tron visuals, and Kraftwerkian pagentry is sublime. In related news,
Daft Punk will in late November release a live album chronicling the June 14 Paris stop on its first tour in a decade, Billboard.com can reveal. The as-yet-untitled Capitol set will be available in a single CD edition plus a two-disc set which features the show's encore. As of now, no live DVD companion is in the works, according to the group.And don't miss the screening of Daft Punk' movie Electroma at the Landmark Sunshine Theatre in NYC this weekend.
If big-time dance concerts are your bag (they should be after Daft Punk), you've got plenty to look forward to in the coming month.
The only thing getting me over my Daft-over is Underworld in Central Park on September 14th. Underworld, in conjunction with their Tomato design collective, take the visual music experience to a completely different level.
Underworld are busy prepping their new album, Oblivion With Bells, for an October release. Prefix has the full tracklist, and a list of some their friends who helped whittle it down to eleven. Earplug previewed the album in their latest issue:
Musically, Hyde cites Germany's techno scene as a major motivator, specifically name-checking Ricardo Villalobos, Mathew Jonson, and the Kompakt label, among others.Karl & Rick have consistently been amazing at twisting contemporary sonic influences into something completely futuristic and amazingly poetic. Check out an awesome live video of Underworld playing "Mo Move" for Moscow.
The Chemical Brothers are another duo adept at channelling "the sound of now" into something uniquely their own. Two big NYC-area shows coming up, including the recently annonunced gig with Ladytron at McCarren Pool on Sept 22 (tix). If you haven't picked up their fantastic We are The Night album. Do it again. Lots of Chems goodies at their Astralwerks site, including an interview series and remix competition for their next single "Salmon Dance." Check out this video of Tom Chemical explaining why some tracks are more fun to play live than others (while Ed Chemical thinks about taking a crap).
Chicago readers, I'm DJing in your fair city this Friday night.
- Calvin Harris is probably the Arctic Monkeys of UK indie dance, and is also some serious fun. ABC News checks up on his Merrymaking home invasion fiasco this Friday. His I Created Disco album is out on Almost Gold in the US on September 4, and he plays the Mercury Lounge in NYC on September 12 (tix), and The Echo in LA two days later.
- Its been a tough summer in Ibiza this year
- Pitchfork points out Ewan Pearson is up next for the stellar Fabric mix series, also seems to think Ibiza is in in Greece
- Jas & James of Simian Mobile Disco take a dig at blog house - "I've been finding that I've been going on all the blogs and all that kind of stuff, which is not a good way of getting music because you get all the same shit that everyone else gets", and a dig at blog rock - "I'm sure everyone picks up the same stuff like Tapes 'n Tapes and all that nonsense" on PF's Guest List. It was also recently announced that SMD are playing CMJ, which is not to be confused with their upcoming show at NYC's Gramercy Theatre.

DFA does PS1 in NYC, June 30, 2007 (CRED & MORE)
Sorry for the delay kids, let the dancing continue - Big, big dance parties coming through NYC in July and this weekend is no exception.
You already know this Saturday is the *live* NYC debut of Simian Mobile Disco at Fixed at Studio B. I still can't get enough of SMD's "I Believe."
Friday night is chockfull of parties worth your time, my People Don't Dance No More party has DFA's Justin Miller, Jacques Renault & Justine D do the Guggenheim early, and Jacques & Marcos Cabral do their Runaway partyat Lit later. You can also catch Chromeo and Flosstradamus hip it out at Fun at Studio B.
Speaking of my party, we are super excited to be launching the first in a series of summertime BOAT PARTIES on Friday July 13th: THE WURST BOAT PARTY featuring My Cousin Roy & Jacques Renault of the Wurst Edits label. The party is hosted in conjunction with the Rocks Off Crew and sails at midnight on Friday the 13th. Spooky! The first 50 tickets get a free WURST EDITS mix CD full of exclusive disco goodness from the boys. Tickets are $15 and are extremely limited, so get at it. This is also the first of our '18 & over' parties, so if you haven't experienced a People Don't Dance No More throw down, get on the boat!
Saturday 7.7.07 is a good day to get freaky all day and all night. The PS1 Warm Up parties are fully underway. The boys of DFA Records kicked it off last weekend and this week pass the torch to the A Touch of Class. Your $10 gets live sets from Services & Kudu, among others...and DJ sets from ATOC and the amazing Lee Douglas (who is putting a record out on WURST EDITS called "Breakwind"). I can't not recommend going to see the Boredoms (I'm going too), but hussle over to Queens afterwards to catch In Flagranti rock the Water Taxi Beach Party (the summer's full Saturday line up is here). Grab a few Sparks and head to Greenpoint for SMD or cruise further south to Trouble & Bass' new home at Rock Star Bar.
