Slander @Soundcheck JB endorsed and JB is always right. The new single DEAD is…well…you’ll see
Gorgon City @9:30 a lot of people have told me I MUST see Gorgon City. Here’s the mix they put out as tour promotion.
Jai Wolf @Uhall best known for the skrillex remix that broke him, but since then he’s done werk on Alesso and Odesza and some other cool stuff
Paco Osuna @flash untz untz untz untz
DC Beer Festival info here come day drink with me and Beddow unless you’re going to Maryland Home coming in which case…see you at odesza!
Odesza @9:30 late show is where it’s at. the whole discography is worth a listen through but if you want a TD;DL, Divinity rocks my world
Laidback Luke @Echostage I already have fomo LBL is DA BEST. this mix got me into him but doesn’t do him justice. you gotta go see him scratch.
Misterwives @9:30 reflections of you hooooOooOoOoo you HoohoooohoooOooOoooo
This is what made me fall in love with her:
And this is why I keep coming back:
She’s an awesome DJ with sick taste, so I’ve delineated some of the tracks for your favoring convenience:
It’s been about a year.
Duke just won the National Championship and Congress is in recess so I’m in a pretty good mood. Time to get back to business.
Here’s what’s on the agenda this week:
Schlomo @Uhall he’s dark and sultry and somber and sexy. being hung over on a Tuesday does not bode well for my endurance this week, but listen to some tunes anyway: a little Banks. and a little of this
EDX @Flash sometimes we need a little avicii in our lives.
The Mountain Goats @9:30 brightest young things likes their new album a lot, which probably means I don’t wear enough plaid or have big enough nerd glasses to appreciate them. womp.
Citizen Cope Acoustic Set @Lincoln Theater let the drummer kick will always remind me of the scene from Accepted when they shut South Harmon Institute of Technology down and Justin Long has to save the day.
Tchami @Ultrabar don’t do it. no one likes a rave-train. (go to 0:56 for a visual of the aforementioned rave train)
Delta Rae @9:30 Duke grads making music! they’re dope live. That blond chick has a serious voice: bottom of the river
Misterwives @UHall (early show) this was your second chance and you missed it again! Sold out. so very sold out. but they’re killin it on the festival circuit this summer so the chance will come again. You probably know See you next fall cause it’s their pop-y hit.
Steve Angello @Echostage don’t you worry don’t you worry child. see heaven’s got a plan for yoooou. So basically Swedish House Weekend 2. A kaleidoscope of sound, it was truly underground….bbc essential ChEcK iT
Friday 6/13: The Game. I only mention this because Andru Ayoub is opening I think and he’s one of Nick’s artists. JDG and I get points for already having seen him. You get no points. Suck it.
Saturday 6/14: Eric Prydz, aka Cirez D, Dukes of Sluca, Groove System, Hardform, Pryda, Moo, Sheridan, Tonja Holma, AxEr, and the A&P Project (I nailed that). if you really want to up your crazy game, double feature this with day 1 of SAMF in chicago. I considered it. I still am…

Sometimes I forget why I love electronic production. Big room house really gets old. But then…. there’s Feed Me.
A true composer, Feed Me always reminds me of the incredible potential that electronic music can reach. He crafts beautifully put together sets with texture and excitement. It’s a musical journey. And it’s completely brilliant.
Wesley Pentz, aka Diplo, is not only sexy as hell, smart AF, but also ultimately endowed with the ability to make your ass move.
To prove my point, let me offer you some proof. Appendix A shows his new bootleg pack! ALL NEW TUNES to move dat ass to. Appendix B is the mad decent playlist. Appendix C is a link to Diplo Approved sounds. playlists for dayyyzzzzz. lemme see you twerq.
