Thats all I have to say on the matter. I think Mind Dimension is better than Beep Beep Beep.

If you wanna check out Beep Beep Beep, feel free to hit up RCRDLBL

I think this is better:

Trust. Just got shot over the DJ Manaia Re-Edit of Jack Beat’s UFO. Its sick, but only through headphones or good speakers. Totally gonna be a banger at the clubs, but not on the ride home.

From The Mouth of Porn – Tribal Ravestep by Dan

Has anyone ever checked out Noise Porn?

You guys should. They’re a great music blog based out of Edinburgh. Enyway, they just wrote this awesome article about the ever-favorite-among-music-blogs Hostage and got some exclusive tracks from him. While describing the track, they used the term Tribal Ravestep to describe this new Kuduro-like tribal beat coming from Hostage, Jack Beats, Larry Tee, Foamo, Buraka Som Sistema (I know they consider themselves Kuduro, but lets be serious here) and so many others. Take a look:

‘Badman Sound’ is a funky little ravestep monster which is full of wobbly goodness and soaring buildups. The vocal samples are fantastic and really add to the whole tribal ravestep vibe that runs through this tune. The synths here are as always superb, ripping their way through the tune (3.34 for some of the coolest tweaking sounds).

It totally makes sense. From now on, FUCK Kuduro, embrace Tribal Ravestep. PS if you’re from America (like me), you probably think that everything meant for clubs is “techno.” Well, its not, so get over it. Dubstep is not a band, Drum n’ Bass is not dead, and Tribal Ravestep is what hipsters from Philadelphia, Lisbon, and apparently Edinburgh listen to.

Also, going with’s fuck you attitude to anything legal, here is Noise Porn’s “exclusive” Hostage Track.
Disclaimer: We love Noise Porn, but come on guys, how long was that gonna stay “exclusive”? Two days? A week?

While all these new operating systems are coming out, Boy 8-Bit is holding strong! He has a new track out surprisingly called “New Stuff.”

You can check it out on his mspce along with a whole bunch of other stuff he has done recently including a remix of Fake Blood’s Mars which to be honest, isn’t that great.

Maybe It’s Me. by Elise

So like any show, there are things you like and things you don’t like. In Louis Vuitton F/W 09, I liked the nude colored pouf dresses, with their dramatic appeal and small black details. I liked the poufy skirts, because I feel like they could be made to be part of an actual outfit. But other than that, I found the show just, dare I say it, the teensiest bit vulgar? Maybe it was the styling, and I just haven’t warmed up to patent leather Pretty Woman-esque thigh-high boots just yet. Maybe it was the fact that the hot pink and black in the beginning of the show reminded me of 12 year olds trying to be Avril Lavigne in 2002. Maybe I didn’t get their concept, with the bunny ears (Donny Darko discomfort for me) and the plasticy bags and the trousers w/ massive bell-bottomish flounces at the hem. That’s probably it…after all, they are professionals, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Or whatever. What you do think? Avant-Garde and amazing or…sort of jarring?

There was really no other title I could’ve possible used. I’m traveling through the country and haven’t had a minute where this Girl Talk mix HAS NOT been stuck in my head. Dammit I want this guy at Starfields SO BADLY. Or Just want to see him.

On a side note, its weird how little exposure he has had in the UK. It seems like every college student in the US knows about Girl Talk and has been to one of his shows while anyone in the UK hasn’t even heard any of his songs. I guess its cause they haven’t been exposed to the songs he’s been mixing as much as we have on this side of the pond. Too bad.

So this guy Troublemaker went to Kenya a few months ago with the HOPE campaign. All I have to say is that if this is what happens when DJ’s go to Kenya, every DJ should live there.
