the week in Dance w/ Showtrotta (Saturday & Sunday)
Xavier de Rosnay
"their DJ sets are a million times better than their actual live shows. the stuff they dropped into their set at their afterparty at studio b (post-terminal 5, not msg) was brilliant."
Xavier spins an excellent blend of electro, pop, and tons of the unexpected. Take Justice's Xmas mix or their Essential Mix for BBC's Radio 1, make them a bit more electro/dance heavy and that's probably what you can expect for Saturday's set. Tickets here
And two less pricey options for Saturday:
A few months ago you couldn't read an electro blog without see Gui Boratto's 'Chromophobia' on a "favorite albums of '07" list. Unfortunately this is one I still have yet to pick up, but I have heard and read enough to know that Saturday's show should be nothing short of amazing. Not a traditional, crate-digging deejay, expect to hear a range of his own tracks and remixes delivered live with the aid of his laptop and a few controllers adding an upbeat and immediate feel, "Making the Minimum Sound Like More".
