New Madison Grey Is On The Way

So...

Myself and the rider at dawn (lawrence) are in the lab again.  We are working on the new Madison Grey Ep entitled "Booty Tube."  The inspiration for the Ep is all of the booty shaking videos on Youtube.

WE NEED YOUR HELP:
If you find any youtube videos in which there is talking about Booties or a related subject please send it over and maybe you will hear it in a up coming Madison Grey song.  Booty shaking videos without talking are welcome too, for entertainment purposes.

Drexcia, DJ Stingray and The Hermit (The Hero)



Ok so I am playing a show in two weeks time with a one DJ Stingray 313...Now I had never heard of him before but according to some friends of mine who are flying him down and hosting the show, this guy is a hero to many and somehow related to Drexcia, whom, I must confess, I know very little about as well. What I did know, was that when a few of my friends mention Drexcia, they get real quiet and serious, as if they are uttering the actual name of God himself. So sure enough, I was surfing the web tonight and stumbled upon a very rare interview with James Stinson, one of the two dudes behind Drexcia. As it turns out, James died at the young age of 32 in the year 2002, and since then, the other member has remained completely anonymous. Listening to this interview and the little snippets of music they overdubbed, I began to understand why my friends cherished this group's music.

Ill tell you what really struck me though, is that this guy embodied the hermetic life of the musician who is shrouded in mystery. His career and life ended just when myspace and facebook were really taking off, so he was one of the last truly mysterious electronic musicians in the sense that there were only a handful of interviews, and that there was no public image whatsoever involved. James also talks about how he is 100 per cent dedicated to his craft, despite that fact that most people, including friends and family, didn't support him. He describes going into his cave, isolating himself, and focusing on the concepts behind the music rather than going out into the world for inspiration, or for that matter, the club. In fact, he says he doesnt even listen to other music during these "cave" periods.

Well, I can relate to much of this...and i found this interview solidifies things I already have learned from people like Joseph Campbell and James Joyce, who both describe the artist's quest as a Hero's Journey, to the land of darkness and then back again. So...what do you think about the hermetic life of a musician? Do you embody hermeticism yourself? What are the sacrifices you've made? The difficulties? And how do you shut off the "world," in a time when a tool like the internet can give you virtual access so easily to it?

LA Fashion Week - Winter '08

Jared Gold @ Union Station, Downtown Los Angeles


It's remarkable really, that one could actually commandeer the use of the only major train station I know of in Los Angeles for a fashion show. I guess if you find yourself thirty-plus sponsors - including AMTRAK (there's the clincher) - then anything is possible. Suffice to say that the clothes were brightly colored and wildly eclectic - think Sofia Coppola's 'Marie Antoinette' on acid, on a ship lost in the Bermuda Triangle. Seriously. While you're trying to picture that, people are actually buying the clothes (bargain-basement-style) to one side of the catwalk. My wife is thinking to herself, "So this is how it's done in LA....interesting." For a more precise and thorough account of the show, you should contact Michael Duarte and Matthew Mishory from Iconoclastic Management - two ambitious guys that I understand to be responsible for this little shin-dig.

Ur Not In Fashion @ Box Eight, Further Downtown LA

From Union Station we headed south to one of BOXeight's Studios - a great spot run by Peter Eaton Gurnz, hiding in a sort of industrial wasteland hear the 10 freeway. We were impressed by the turnout at such a late-starting show - I don't think it started until about midnight. Ur Not In Fashion Clothing was solid, upscale-casual LA attire - think acid-wash denim, silk-screened t-shirts...etc One had to wonder though, why they played music on the stereo of a lowrider that found its way into the studio. Sure, it looked cool, but it sounded like ass. 
DISCLAIMER: beware the gimmick - if you don't think these things through, they just might do you a disservice. All in all, I'd say it was a successful night for all involved - the lime energy drinks and vodka made sure it ran late.

Dragons Of Zynth

I did a brief stint as an intern at One Little Indian Records in New York, back in 2006. Whilst abusing the hell out of the CMJ passes that I had scored for my wife and I, we bumped into Jaleel Bunton of TVOTR outside Arlene's Grocery on the Lower East Side. My wife having been formerly acquainted with the drummer, introduced me. I inquired as to whether he knew of any unsigned talent worth checking out. He replied that TVOTR had taken a band under their wing not so long ago, and that I should contact them and go see them play. This band was none other than the Dragons Of Zynth. I went to see them play at a bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Nothing came of my position at One Little Indian, except the seeds of a good friendship with the brothers (Aku and Akwetey Orracca-Tetteh) responsible for the birth of DOZ. I subsequently saw them play at least twelve times over the following eight months. It was my privilege to watch and hear them evolve and explode with an intensity indicative of musical minds that do not operate on the level of people like you and I. They have played with at least four different drummers since I have known them, and three different bass players; each player accompanied a potent shift in dynamics.

Over the two years since I moved to Los Angeles, I have spoken to them only a handful of times. They assured me that they would be hitting the West Coast soon, but time would pass by again. Then, one day as I sifted through an uninspired slew of new releases on the iTunes store, I stumbled across "Coronation Thieves" - the debut album by DOZ. I downloaded it immediately, but I wanted a physical copy too, so I headed over to the Virgin Megastore in Hollywood to pick one up. Several of the tracks on the album I had heard in some form or other during my association with the brothers, some of the tracks were new. I'm always excited to see a friend's work hit the shelves, and this was no exception. Dave Sitek (accomplished producer of bands such as TVOTR, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Celebration) worked with the boys on Coronation Thieves, and the result is strong. In my unprofessional, personal (and therefore biased) opinion, not enough risks were taken in the production of the album. I am a huge fan of all of the aforementioned artists which he produced, but in the case of DOZ, a lot of the potency and power of the music is hard to capture on tape; their music is rhythmically and harmonically complex, full of wildly shifting dynamics - only a live performance will really show you what they are about.
In March 2008, the band made a long-overdue appearance on the West Coast. I caught up with them at the Dublab studio above the Little Temple Bar on Santa Monica Blvd in Silverlake. Hobbling up the stairs on crutches thanks to a boisterous karaoke session that ended in me breaking my ankle one month prior, I was greeted by the brothers, and was reminded at once of what I had been missing here in LA. After several technical difficulties (accompanied by the smell of burning fuses), DOZ whisked through their set. Then they started over, citing unhappiness with the energy of the first run. I joined them for a meal in Echo Park, then followed them to the 6th Street Warehouse in Downtown LA. They played a fantastic set, following on the heels of a great performance by Rumspringa (another wonderfully imaginative act that I have the pleasure of knowing personally). The Dragons drove off into the night, on the war path with Saul Williams as the opening act on the Niggy Tardust's Star-Spangled Banner Tour. A couple of nights later, they returned in force to LA, playing a show at the Troubadour. They soaked our senses with psychedelic splendour, tearing into the consciousness of a fully-unprepared audience. My face fixed in a wide grin of appreciation, I relinquish control and let the powerful waves of this unique blend of fire and soul wash over me. The live show is alive and well...

Hybrid Hipsters Walk The Streets

Yuppies are a thing of the past, and Hipsters are becoming increasingly rare. Have you noticed the new hybrids that are moving into your neighborhoods and taking up bar space at your local watering-hole? These are crossbreeds - a new generation. The "Yupsters" are young, up-and-coming people with keener, less preppy fashion sense; find them in Echo Park, Downtown Los Angeles and scattered across town. The "Richsters" are trust-fund hipsters - rich kids posing as hipsters; these are harder to spot, due to their attention to detail in emulating their more authentic ancestors. You are very likely to rub shoulders with a good mix of these types when visiting Intelligentsia Coffee at Sunset Junction. Feel free to appropriate these terms, use them excessively, and call out these space-invading creatures. Pigeon-holing is fun.

Old Electro... New CD!


Hello everyone,


This weekend I was able to do something that was truly great.  I went to the silence theatre on Fairfax in Los Angeles and saw two old "breaksploitation" movies.  I saw "Beat Street" and "Breakin'."  Both were amazing.  Especially "Beat Street" which had a million cameos, one of which was Afrika Bambaataa.

But the best part of the night was that the Arabian Prince (one of the original members of N.W.A. and west coast Electro legend) was there spinning.  It was awesome!  He played all the old jams and I even got a picture with him.

He actually has a new album that just came out on Stones Throw Records.  It is called "Innovative Life: The Anthology, 1984-1989."  It is really awesome and you should get it if you are into Electro.
Sweet!

Terrabyte 3.0 is coming next month


I'm sure you've heard of Terrabyte. It's an annual outdoor event at The Arboretum, created by Tycho and Test Shot Starfish - experimental, electronic dudes with art and visual installations. I've been to the first and second event and it's definitely worth checking out.

I just found out this year's Terrabyte (coined 3.0) will be on Sunday, September 14th (5pm-10pm). No details on their website (it's actually down - I think they're redesigning it), but will let you know when I find out more information. Last year, they asked for submissions for the art installations, but I think we should try to get Catalog artists to play there.

This event happens at The Arboretum located at 301 N. Baldwin Avenue, Arcadia, 91007.

Download free, rare 78rpm records in digital format - sample time!

Cliff Bolling, a 57-year old Portlander and 78rpm record collector, has created an archive of all of his rare, vintage 78rpm singles. We're talking over 3,700 titles and more to come.

Speaking of Daedelus, he's playing tomorrow night @ Low End Theory

See below...his new album is dancy. Thanks for the XLR8R video, tmbrudy!

On Wednesday, August 6th, Low End Theory is back (hint) for another unforgettable night under the stars. We're proud to present a headline performance from one of our proudest family members, the one-and-only Daedelus. Opening set on the main stage by matthewdavid, plus an upstairs kick-off performance by Leo 123. All residents on deck for the sonic devastation you're accustomed to. As always (and with any Daedelus show at Low End) early arrival is highly suggested for this special engagement:


DAEDELUS
[Ninja Tune]
One of L.A.'s most daring artists, this young musical romantic weaves together a true "love-sound" that falls between honeyed melody and avant-electronics. Daedelus chops and splices disparate acoustic sources into incredible works of staggering resonance. Contrasting IDM styled cut-ups with childlike 30s arrangements, he has refined a style that has no imitators. Daedelus has been a stalwart of Low End Theory since our inception, and we consider him to be one of our residents-at-large. This night he returns home for his first Low End show in over six months.
http://www.myspace.com/daedelusdarling


MATTHEWDAVID
[Dublab]
It is indeed a pleasure for us to bring you a close encounter with one of L.A.'s most fabled new talents. His Spills EP on Plug Research exposed him to the masses, while his co-production on Flying Lotus' Los Angeles cemented his rep even further. Now, matthewdavid will unveil his new live show for the very first time. Witness the birth of another star on the Low End stage.
http://www.myspace.com/matthewdavid


LEO 123
[Dark Party]
As one-half of Dark Party (alongside Eliot Lipp) and as a solo producer, Leo 123 has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with. An electro genius, Leo 123's beats have serious knock. Leo is on a West Coast tour right now, so it's only right he's rocking Low End for his Los Angeles date.
http://www.myspace.com/8156202

As well as your Resident DJs


DADDY KEV
[Alpha Pup]
Batting first on the Low End Theory lineup is legendary producer and label boss Daddy Kev. As a producer and engineer, he's spent the last decade crafting classics for the likes of AWOL One, Busdriver, The Grouch, Sage Francis, Mix Master Mike, Abstract Rude, D-Styles, Freestyle Fellowship, The Shape Shifters and many more. His DJ sets are a high-tech affair with Kev primarily engaged in live remixes, slicing experimental beats and hip-hop classics to shreds.
http://www.myspace.com/daddykev


NOBODY
[Plug Research]
From his adventures on the road with Mars Volta and Prefuse 73, to his production and remixes for Postal Service, Mystic Chords of Memory and Busdriver, coupled with his own solo work on labels such as Rough Trade and Plug Research, Nobody is a living tour de force of creative genius.
http://www.myspace.com/nobodyelvin


D-STYLES
[Funkshitup]
His virtuoso skills on the turntables have been compared to that of Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane. As a former member of Invisibl Skratch Piklz and Beat Junkies, he toured the globe, helping transform turntablism into a global phenomenon. Now, the legendary D-Styles is back on the frontlines of underground culture, shredding your soul every week at Low End Theory.
