Araab Muzik – Let It Go

This song was made by Aarab Muzik in his stalactite beat cave, so much piercing, blueish natural precision, mathematical complexity and otherworldly beauty. This is off of his latest EP Electronic Dream that has been burning up the intertubes, this album is a fire breathing dragon leaving that cave. We’re not usually telling people what to do (wait, yes we do), but you should acquire the whole album (the tracks all go one into the next so it’s great from start to finish) on Amazon.

We can’t wait for this July 21st show in New York.

S!CK April 22nd with OoOOo, Nike7up, Butterclock, Blissed Out, Mascara

post image

S!CK, the party that could, is becoming a cultural event that would, now that even the New Yorker has stodgily given some notice, while omitting details and getting some facts wrong, has crowned us with the finest prize: parents calling from all over the world saying, “ahem”, and “very good” and “wow, what fine language”. However, pay no heed to all that “jazz”, it’s still going to be just as weird and sick and whatever you will call an amazing experience. Listen to some of the performers in your private bubble and come join us this Friday at Santo’s.

Where Were You During the S!CK Salem Show, NYC, 3.19.11?

post image

When people, weeks from now, ask me where I was five minutes before Salem was due to begin their NYC set at our S!CK party, (as part of their tour that willfully ignored SXSW), I will be able to answer that I was at a McDonald’s four blocks away from Santo’s, the venue.

S!CK: White Ring, Von Haze, Blissed Out, Pictureplane and Shams (and More) at Santo’s

post image

There was one moment, I think it was during the Aaron K DJ set before White Ring was due to go on, the lights were pulsating at the “Warning; If You’re Prone To Seizures, You Are Having One” level, that I heard a girl right next to me let out a very loud shriek. I stopped, pulsated and moved toward the direction of the scream. It turned out she’d just spotted a “veeeerrrrryy good friend”, and as all living beings have done for millions of years, announced this fact to everyone at full hilt.

It was scary, it was amazing and then all of a sudden everyone was there to hear it.
