Listen with headphones on :: HYQXYZ - Inception (Dubstep Remix)

The time is now!

After going out to my regular haunt tonight I was blown away by the severe lack of subsonic frequencies... It really bothered me that the dj tried to make up for lack of bass with the weak ass shit he was dropping by turning up the volume on the track... Problem is that doesn't add bass to the song, it just makes it louder and hurting my eardrums so any enjoyment that I could have received from your tunes is dead because you are literally hurting my ears, not just with shitty music, but with the volume cranked so high because the tracks you are dropping were not made with the proper amount of bass. Tonight a movement has begun. I am personally starting the Foundation of the Vibration, a group whose campaign is "S. ave O. ur B. ass,
The S.O.B. campaign, because the travesty I was subjected to tonight was a real son of a bitch. The S.O.B. campaing will be putting in a call to the whompbulance to deliver the vaccination of vibrations to those in dire need of a case of the WAH-WAH's. Bass: Freaks, Junkies, Fanatics, Enthusiasts, Advocates, flat out Feinds we must join together and prevent the heathenous infidels trying to pass their weak ass shit off as having enough bass... Remember making it louder does not add more bass. The only way to get MORE bass is to play the right music containing it to begin with. Everyone who knows better after being exposed to grimy filthy beats while being wrapped in a warm cocoon of weighty bass needs to rally to the cause. If it doesn't rattle your rib cage as it melts your face, you're doing it wrong... We need to rise up now before these non believers taint the blessed name of bass with their played out weak ass approximations.
True believers you have felt the vibration, you have seen the light at the top of the mountain, and you know that light would not exist without the strong foundation at it's bass. Bass is one of the corner stones that makes up the rhythm of a song. You can't take it away from us, we won't let you. The time is now before it comes to desperate times requiring desperate measures. Tonight marks the beginning of the Foundation of the Vibration and of the campaign to S.AVE O.UR B.ASS.

No Boats October Gigs / Barrel~dEM Promotions / Where I'll be

BOOOO! October is here once again ... one of my favorite months. I love the weather and halloween is around the corner. Here are some of the places you can find me deejaying, working or just hanging out:

Not that you really need a reason to party, but I'll give you 2 good ones, just in case:

I'm throwing this party to raise funds for an awesome, super smart friend, Rhiannon who needs some help paying for her college education. She's already gotten grants, loans, and scholarships and has THREE jobs, but damn, college is expensive... and this is my way of helping her out, which you all get to be a part of! :)
AND I'm moving out of Chicago in just a few weeks... and so I'm also using this as sort of a last hurrah before I go (*tear*) so I want to see all my favorite people there! ♥

So, although this IS a FREE party, we will be accepting donations at the door, anything at all that you can give to help our friend Rhiannon out would be SUPER appreciated :) ALL of the money given at the door, the bar, and at Sebrina's cosmo services will go to this fundraiser.

Pass this e-mail along to your FRIENDS :) This is not a party to bring strangers to... friends and family only please, so we can make sure everyone has a good, safe time :)

Can't wait to see you on the dance floor..... until then.... ;)

You're so very welcome to join your friends in Chicago's Burning Man
Community for Decompression 2011: The Voyage Home. Every year, this
B.U.R.N. NFP-sponsored community event brings the loving, creative
spirit, and the full-throttled energy of the Burning Man Project to
beautiful Chicago, Illinois for thirteen hours.

On Saturday, October 15th, you and hundreds of your closest friends
will return to the Bridgeport Arts Center to create your version of
Black Rock City, right here in your own amazing town.

This community-arts event will be - as always - for you, and by you,
complete with music, art installations, food, fire, friends, family
and FUN! This event will be conducted in accordance with the Ten
Principles of the Burning Man Regional Network
http://regionals.burningman.com/network_principles.html . Full
financial reports will be available to this community after
Decompression is over.

Donations for reserved admission will be available online shortly
after Burning Man.

THEME: THE VOYAGE HOME
Some “Rites of Passage” call you away from your nest for a pilgrimage
or exploration, a battle, or mission. The Rite then ends with “The
Voyage Home,” a familiar story to burners in and around our great
town.

Each August, hundreds of Chicagoans voyage 2000 miles to Black Rock
City, where they are greeted with the words “Welcome Home.” Yet in
September they voyage 2000 more miles back to their permanent homes in
Chicago and the family, friends, or lovers unable to travel those 4000
miles.

And that's why there's a Decompression . . . for everyone to relive
Home, right here in our amazing town.

ARTISTS NEEDED

Mountains out of molehills :: DJ Shadow - Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt

Pretty Lights Country Roads Remix All Good 2011

Saturday: Slippy Feet

The When Skills Turn Deadly DJ Competation at Gramaphone Records delivered some hot djs and beats. This track stood out and stayed in my head.



And then the Logan Square Chamber of Commerce's dj played a little sum'n after the bands finished and our fire performer friends were getting ready to light up...





SERIOUSSTUFF

Raise Your Weapons and Can You Hear Me Now

This song has been stuck in my head for months as I've heard my roommate singing it throughout the house. I finally asked my roommate what the track was tonight.



Oh and I recently discovered Pretty Lights... Yeah, I'm so far behind the bandwagon I can't even see it's dust.

Anyway, I found Shelton Harris rhyming over a Pretty Lights track. And it is good.

Yesterday's Soundtrack (cot'd)

No Boats and Serious Stuff's beach day deserves it's own mixtape, fo shizz.

Here's the gangsta side...





Ah, one more swansong... my absolute all time favorite summer jam...

Beach/Lake/Poolside

No Boats and Serious Stuff went to the beach yesterday. It was the BEST.

By the way, POOLSIDE is worth more attention. Check it.

TONIGHT!!!

Tonight!!!! FuRTHeR DoWN THe WoBBLe HoLe on 89.3fm an/or www.wnur.org brought to you by your host and DJ... The man with a method to his madness jAspErwOckY. From 2:30-5am(sometime even earlier) bacon greased grimy goodness will be served hot and fresh off of the skillet, turn on, tune in, drop out, and get DOWN! As Always... www.soundcloud.com/jasperwocky

Wrapped up inside the lines between the words you should have said...

Beneath your dreams, lustful in deceit

Time to come clean as the asphalt grinds your teeth

Into Dust as your spectacular vernacular slowly creeps

It's way into trust spoken softly it's poison seeps

Syllables coughing out what they know they have leeched

The reaches of machination's drought is in between

With a whisper you unravel everything I thought I've seen

Do it slowly, I know I like what I could be

As those eyes saw a line through a mezzanine

Undoubtedly cutting as I sway in between

The seams of doubt suspended in a dream

Woven crystalline into a laser beam

Sterilized charm encrypted oh so clean

Splicing the answers of genetic geometry

Strangling the chromosomes of this humanity

Killing all softly with razored uncertainties

The deaths they are drowning out insanity

Frayed and worn the synapses of this reality

Congruent conglomerations televised subliminally

Observed by masses whose faith psychotically

With their words killing everything they see

Stained glass blinders worn so easily

What's another day without a dose of apathy?

Self aggrandizing, oh so arrogantly

It's a nightmare

The rivers of blood flowing out into the sea

It's a nightmare

It's routine as it is subjectively

As a nightmare

Aborting all the hope that we hoped to keep

It's a nightmare

The rivers of blood are flowing out of me

Slipping past the subtle tear of a fragment in your twist

Of allusion to the conclusion of the solution in the mist

Delusion in the self aggrandizing surmised oh so pissed

It's not surprising without compromising clench our fists

The verge of surrender loans of rust flaking onto this

The nickle toothed lender delivering water, but it's piss

Most cleverly bribed nooses are severed with a kiss

Umbilically tethered to the forever, reminisce

Butchering politically desensitizing with ignorance

Suckle the ceramic teat demanding something that makes sense

Masses constantly meandering to the pandering of happenstance

For televised branding of blood drenched eye candy violence

It's a nightmare

The rivers of blood flowing out into the sea

It's a nightmare

It's routine as it is subjectively

As a nightmare

Aborting all the hope that we hoped to keep

It's a nightmare

The rivers of blood are flowing out of me

Tilting on the faults of all that's proclaimed

How much does it cost in carrion for us to be saved?

How we're all so easily amazed easily bemused

As the promises of carrots laced with gold are infused

With the candor and the mystery so willing to be confused

Lining up all wanting to be the next to be used

Because it's what we're sold, it's what we're told what to do

Plugging into the god of a brain that's the boob tube

As the decaying decimal's clock forgot to carry the two

Tilting on all the faults of all that's left to do

How much does it cost in carrion to become like you?

How we're all so easily amazed so easily bemused

As the promises of carrots laced with gold are infused

With candor and mystery so willing to be chewed

Lining up all wanting to be the next to be confused

Because it's what we're sold, it's what we're told what to do

Plugging into the god of a brain that's the boob tube

As the decaying decimal's clock assuredly strikes two

Far too many struggling figuring out what to do.

Do we truly know what is finally due?

I'm not like you

But I'm you

I'm not like you

But it's true...

Ansible-Futurist - Ho-Oh Mix 12.18.09

My boy Scotty aka Ansible-Futurist has been making these mixes based on Pokemon characters for a few years ... man how time flies. Scotty and I used to mix all night long at my house all the time. I'm really impressed by his progress and his taste in music. Scotty also produces and remixes tracks. He is going to school in Denmark. Check his entire soundcloud page for some great tunes!

I'M FREAKIN :: Dan Deacon is coming to the Chi!

So Dan Deacon is playing at the Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusement festival in Eckhart Park in Chicago (Chicago Ave and Noble St) on Sunday Sept 17, with Shellac, A Lull and Fool's Gold. To be honest, I've never heard of these other bands but I'm willing to give them a shot. I always enjoy checking out new music.

Deacon has been working on a new album and live show since his last "Spiderman of the Rings" album. Apparently the instrumentation on "Bromst" is a mixture of acoustic instruments, mechanical instruments, samples and electronics, rather than mainly electronic as his last album was.

The last two times I saw Dan Deacon, were a spiritual experience for me. His ability to pull in and interact with the crowd is amazing. If you experience his show and it doesn't move you, then your soul is dead. Yeah, I said it.

You can find more information on the festival here -
Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusement

Tickets are $20 ... limited amount at the door
Doors open at 5 PM

Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95, From the New World- Antonín Dvořák

A friend of mine mentioned Dvořák the other day, and I've been thinking about New World Symphony. I played it in high school. Every moment of it thrilled me to the core. I really miss playing in orchestras. Anyone got an extra euphonium?

Fela Soul - Stakes is High
Fela Kuti and De La Soul makes me so happy. Fela Soul is genius! Brought to you by Nashville's own Gummy Soul artist Amerigo Gazaway, who was brought into litigation upon remixing A Tribe Called Quest with the Pharcyde lyrics. Yes, it was that good - the major labels shut it down.

Aeroplanes Bxentric In Flight

It is a GREAT morning... I just discovered Bxentric's sound cloud, The Jockey Club's monthly mixtapes and Aeroplane's sound cloud.


There are a ton or remixes of 'Crave You' but I think I just might like Bxentric's the best...
productions by BXENTRIC


Check out this month's (and all of the others too) Jockey Club mix! Starting with Flight Facilities was a great way to get me hooked.

ONELOVE :: R.I.P. DJ Mehdi


DJ Mehdi has always had the freshest sounds from France and beyond. I just found out less than an hour ago that the one of the illest DJ's and Producers in the world has passed from this plane of existence. Respect is already showing up all over Youtube and the Blogosphere. I had the honor of seeing DJ Mehdi at Boom Boom Room with Kid Sister and Willy Joy, a few months back. His music will never be forgotten!

From RollingStone.com:
French DJ and producer DJ Mehdi has died at the age of 34. Mehdi, born Mehdi Favéris-Essadi, was a key figure in the French electro scene and a lynchpin of the Ed Banger label along with Justice, SebastiAn, Mr. Oizo, Uffie, Feadz and Cassius.

According to MTV News, DJ Mehdi was celebrating his 34th birthday on his rooftop at the time of his death. Some reports suggest that he fell from a collapsing mezzanine.

I'm Not a Talker

"I'm a speaker. Speaking to you."

Ho lee carp. I heard this track at the exact right time, place, and circumstances. I had come across the Robot Heart bus out in the deep playa, by chance. And this bidniss FLIPPED MY LID:



I took a little video too of another track that got my juices flowin, not to mention all of the other insanity going on around me:

Take some EE :: E!E! Environmental Encroachment - GNOWEE - JBTV HDTV Chicago

I'm not sure why I haven't blogged about them before. Environmental Encroachment aka EE is one of Chicago's best kept secrets. Something between a SKA band and a marching band with a punk, burner attitude ... they always draw the crowd when rocking out wherever they play.

WEDNESDAY AT THE CONGRESS :: Empire of the Sun

Full Moon Dates for 2011
Dates of the jams are subject to change and happen rain or shine. Jams do not happen on Friday or Saturday nights. In the case of the Full Moon falling on a Friday or Saturday night, jams are moved to Thursday or Sunday. Every jam ends by 10:15pm.

September 12th Monday 7:00 pm
October 11th Tuesday 6:15 pm

A few things to note:

SPECTATORS:
- This is a "Leave No Trace" event so please take out everything you brought with you, including any trash.
- Photographers are welcome but we ask that there be NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY as it is dangerously distracting to performers; also, if you use a tripod, either use a low one or please stand farther back with a full sized tripod so as not to obstruct the view of others.
- Pets are welcome, but please keep them leashed.
- Per Chicago park regulations, no alcohol or illicit substances allowed.

SPINNERS:
- even if you don't spin fire, please feel free to bring your gear and play!
- Please be aware that fire performers MUST attend and complete a safety training session in order to perform at a FMJ. Safety info/training session dates/times/locations will be posted on the wall for the jam as they are scheduled. The jam organizers are aware that this is a departure from the "open spin" policy of previous years, but have decided to implement this requirement in order to protect the interests of the fire spinning community and help ensure the continuation of the jams in Chicago.
- fire spinners should bring their own gear and fuel.
- ALL spinners are required to safety during the jam, general rule is "Spin one/Safety one."

Remember: protect the crowd, protect the community & protect yourself.

Any questions, just email the organizers through the google group list.

Thanks!!
