Elite Force RIPEcast - 1-hr DJ Mix for Burning Man 2010

The Space Cowboys are something of a San Francisco institution with a back catalogue of stunning parties to their name. Every year they haul themselves out to the Playa to unleash their own unique brand of dementia at Burning Man. Meanwhile, thanks to the hard graft of good friend Zach Moore & others, their RIPEcast series of DJ mixes has become a great source of new pod-candy, so when I was asked to submit something for an exclusive pre-Burn mix, I was more than happy to oblige.

Bump DJs - Falcone :: Disconnected Audio

Bump DJs are identical twin duo, Mike and Manny Holihan. Over the last couple of years they have established themselves solidly as DJs in the Sydney techno scene. Recently, the Bumps' have been hard at work in the studio putting their own twist on the solid techno sound they are renowned for pushing in the club. Setting high standards for themselves, they have now secured their first release, Falcone on Disconnected Audio.

On remix duties we have Aussie favourite, Bass Kleph who turns in a big peak time track that is full of party vibes and massive amounts of class. Keeping things close to home we also have New Zealand’s Magik Johnson who keeps things a little housier with a tight groove and soulful vibes.

Get a listen to the release & support this second release on Matty Dopamine's label at Beatport:

Calvertron Interview

Have you been to Wickerman before and can you describe it for people that haven’t had the pleasure?
Thousands of people, great atmosphere, cool acts, the U&A tent was rocking! (and packed)

What current track is your weapon of choice at the moment?
The latest release on my label (came out this week) made by me and my cousin (Paul Calver) entitled - 'Calvertron & Qalvr - Raw 2 Da Floor' seems to be doing the business at my gigs!

Whats your next big show coming up you would like to tell everyone about?
I've got some great gigs coming up in August in places like Vancouver, Sicily, Denver but I'm really excited about a show Will Bailey and I are playing as 'Twocker' at the Kosmic Festival in LA. It's my 1st time in LA and the 1st Twocker set since 2008.

What is your all-time favourite u&a track and why?
'We Don't Play That' (Aniki Remix) is pretty sick!

Anything else you would like to add?
I'd Like to say a HUGE thanks to everyone involved with the U&A tent at Wickerman for doing such an amazing job, Shack for booking me and Simon and LJ for the kind hospitality. Hope to come back again!

New compilation from Myagi - Donations to Temple of Flux welcome!

It's been about 2 years since the last proper Myagi studio album and about a year and a half since he started his label Pop And Lock, so Andrew Mavor (as his family like to call him) figured it was about time to do a new "compilation" of sorts to hold things over until he finishes his next album, due out later this year or early next. It's also for charity! 100% of the proceeds from any donations you make go to Burning Man's Temple of Flux, a massive construction project that needs all the support it can get.

You can download the comp and donate HERE, and read more about the Temple below!

Notes From Myagi:

"San Francisco is a city very dear to me, and has been the site of some of my favourite shows I've played in my 6 years of touring or so... The city has a great nightlife scene and is also a hub for the festival / phenomenon Burning Man, a week long celebration of music, art and lifestyle in the desert. The festival is very much a labor of love - I knew this already, but didn't comprehend the degree to which the word "labor" comes into play until a recent trip to the bay area to do a benefit show with Elite Force, Soul Of Man and Slyde for the 2010 Temple Of Flux, a massive construction and project that involves numerous friends of mine."

You can check out a bit of a "walkthrough" of the Temple as a rendered animation here:

Please check out the album and if you feel inclined (at I hope you do) donate as much as you like / can to help a bunch of VERY talented people do something very special.

Rektchordz Vs Jakatta - American Dream (Re-Boot) [320]

Jamie Rektchordz has been smashing it this year.

Kicking off with a Hypem-topping
Calvin Harris mashup, following through with a stellar Beatport-conquering single for U&A ('SpeakerBump') and a wicked slice of classic tech-funk for Aux ('Lush'), he's also been busy throwing down at a series of keynote festivals this summer, recently closing out the U&A tent at Wickerman at 5am to a chorus of 'ONE MORE TUNE' that resonated well into the next day!

With the Aeon Festival in the South West coming up and a series of new tracks & remixes (his remix for
Felix Luker on U&A is MASSIVE!) he's now decided to set free the second bootleg / remake of the year, this time focusing his sights on Jakatta's 'American Dream'. It's the perfect end-of-evening anthem :)

Here we have yet another exclusive first for you then, with a FREE 320 download. Grab it from the widget below & check out the links for more Rektchordz info & hook-ups.
