The enormous Bart B More remix of Cubic Zirconia’s “Take Me High” has quickly become a DJ favorite (peep Diplo opening Holy Ship! with it and dropping on his radio show), and the band loves it too. So much, in fact, that they decided to film a video for the remix, with frontwoman Tiombe Lockhart once again pulling double duty on both sides of the camera to direct.
Watch it up top, grab the remix on iTunes or Beatport, and check more CZ vids (and Tiombe’s directorial tips) here.
Cubic Zirconia will be playing their first hometown show of the new year (and their first since opening SBTRKT’s sold-out Music Hall Of Williamsburg gig) on Saturday, February 4th at Drom. They’ll be shooting another vid there as well, so look sharp! We’ll see you there. Read More

Sammy and Maggie are back with a new cover for ya, this time turning Ryan Leslie and Red Cafe’s rap-n-b jam into a “triumphant disco banger,” as Sam puts it. It’ll get you in the mood for their first live show of the year, going down at Brooklyn’s Glasslands on Sunday, January 29th (get advance tickets here) and set the stage for their brand new EP of originals, Ring Ring, dropping on Valentine’s Day, 2/14. Stay tuned…
The Jokers Of The Scene one-two punch continues with the release of J0T5 RMXD. It’s a companion piece to last week’s J0T5 EP, and features the sterling remix work of some of electronic music’s finest: Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), Shadow Dancer (BNR), Hrdvsion (Wagon Repair), Savile & Olin, Cosmic Kids (Throne Of Blood), Gingy & Bordello (Turbo) and Babe Rainbow (Warp).
From Hrdvsion’s slow, funky take on “In Order To Trance” to Daniel Avery dropping breakbeat science on “Black Mountie” (already a favorite of Andrew Weatherall and more), this remix EP offers the Jokers’ peers and contemporaries a chance to launch dance satellites of their own into the duo’s enjoyably unique orbit. Check it out on iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere fine mp3s are sold. Read More
