Tha Carter III is fucking BANANAS. This is absolutely not trance rap. Produced by Just Blaze.
Wow so did you read about this on BBC yet? That’s fucking awesome! Imagine trying to go down there and being like “I come in peace” and then they just shoot you with an arrow and eat you. I wonder how they will approach the tribe? Crazy.
Anyway I’m bummed I couldn’t go see The Presets tonight at first ave so if you went I hope it was really awesome. Please tell me about it.
Then before I dig into an actual post I wanted to say Heavy Metal in Baghdad went off at the triple rock. Big ups to VICE for helping us do that and Triple Double for supplying the venue. Also Benny Benassi was wild last night. It was such a weird crowd but deff a fun one. Big ups to Sound In Motion for everything with that. Jonathan played four Justice tracks and I played three bmore remixes about girls (LOL). Pictures from both events will be up after our big party at Barfly tomorrow.
WHICH REMINDS ME! Please RSVP at RSVP@SOELECTRICPARTY.COM if you haven’t. Tomorrow will be a lot of fun. Finally a night where we can have all of our friends playing and partying instead of just a few.
So my post today… Little twist off of the ever so popular and ever so highly used High Powered Boys (Surkin & Bobmo) track – Get Down (DJ Ayres Party Edit) which is a mashup of Paul Johnson and High Powered Boys. I love these simple tracks. They are way too catchy and way too easy to mix in .
Next track is an older one by Thomas Bangalter. I’d love to throw this track in around the 2:20 mark. Simple and catchy, I’m going to try to play this tomorrow at So Electric. We’ll see. Enjoy it anyway.
Thomas Bangalter – What To Do (Mediafire)
Then I know this has been posted quite a bit but I gotz it at 320 and now you will too. Lights & Music – Cut Copy (Boys Noise REMIX) (Mediafire)
We teamed up with VICE and Triple Double at The Triple Rock to show a screening of this awesome movie. Click here for the flier. Come check out the movie and stay for 2-4-1 drinks, video games, and djs afterwards. Should be a really good time.
And for the people that are sick of seeing fliers and promo (There’s a lot this week. Sorry!) here’s a track to enjoy.
Do it to it was this weekend at first ave and it was pretty awesome. Dave Nada, Bird Peterson, and Star Eyes came to Minneapolis to join us for the big release of Mike 2600′s DO IT TO IT. Every dj in Minneapolis was there and instead of doing a big long blog post about it I figure I will just link you to the party pixx!!! and the new… PARTY VID!!! WOW. I put the video together in like 10 minutes with my apple computer and imovie. It was as easy as 1,2,3 and export. Thanks Apple. AND THANK YOU to everyone who came out.

SO ELECTRIC STARTING FRIDAY
No more sitting behind the booth tooling with knobs, the next logical progression of partying should be interactive. Hence, Theater Disco. And I can imagine it looking a bit like this:
I was watching the HOOLIGAN DISCO video from Institubes… yes I know old news…but if you missed it watch above… anyway there was an old TRAX track in there that I really liked. Remember this?

The crowd was really great too and dressed REAL GOLD. Check the party photos becuz NIGHTLIFE FOTOGRAPHY IS KEWL AND POPULARZ. People were dancing hard. That’s all that matters.

Maino- “Hi Hater”
Nine Inch Nails – “The Hand That Feeds” (DFA Remix)
The Maino song is better, weirdly enough.
It is sort of understood in the realm of remixing that there isn’t much need to touch an Afrika Bambaata track, much less remix one that samples them. But Mr. Mortimer has. That’s all I really need to say, here:
Speaking of Africa, Johannesburg is pretty serious right now.
First allow me to introduce myself. I am Friend, an extremely famous DJ from London, England. I am here to show you little city Minneapolites how we boogie it in a real city. You may think you are cool, you may think you are hip, but you just don’t match up to me. My posts will be far superior to any of the others’.
Now let’s get down to business shall we. This is Bobby Nunn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Nunn). But wait, born in 1925? That’s right folks – that’s not even him! Ha ha. Yes, he is so exclusive he doesn’t even have a wikipedia entry. I’m so great.
