After getting people hyped with the music video, and a packed month of “More Fire” tour dates, it’s only right that Congorock’s “Babylon” finally sees official release. The single features a massive vocal version with dancehall don Mr Lexx (the voice behind Major Lazer’s “Hold The Line” and many more lighter-flickers), the instrumental dub you already know and love from the video, and a “Lexxapella” for the DJs to play with. Big!
Grab it next week on Beatport, and all other services shortly there after. Vinyl on its way too, with some huge remixes… oh you thought we forgot about those? Hell naw! If that’s not enough, you can grab these none-more-black Congorock logo tees at our webstore, featuring the new metal logo from the “Babylon” sleeve above, designed by Dust La Rock ov cvrse!
Spooky siblings Dust La Rock and Star Eyes recently delved into the deepest recesses of their respective record libraries to whip up this new Ov Cvrse mix for Mishka. It’s a collection of everything from Ministry, Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb to Black Strobe, Adult and even Benga and Skream’s coldest moments. And it is awesome!
The mix came out so well, in fact, that Mishka decided to keep the name for their SXSW showcase of icy synths and “-wave” suffixes. More info on that show (which includes a set from our own Jokers Of The Scene) here. Tracklist for the Ov Curse mix after the jump. Read More
Scion filmed us a while back at the office, at A-Trak and Dust La Rock’s Grateful Bear signing, and at the afterparty with Trouble & Bass later that night. Their little behind-the-scenes glimpse (taken from Scion Magazine #15) is up now, enjoy.
The sightings and tweets are official: Dust La Rock is out in LA this weekend for the opening of Installation 6 at the Scion Space, where they “challenged 10 artists to create non-narrative video installations that will eventually transform five unique exhibitions around the country.” Dusty’s animated short “Occult Of Personality” is featured in the project, and is pretty killer if we do say so ourselves.
The opening reception is tonight (1/23) and Dust and all the other artists will be in attendance – go and check it out before it moves on to future locations in Austin, Wichita, Minneapolis and Brooklyn. Read More

Just because we’re celebrating our 2nd birthday at CMJ in NYC this week doesn’t mean the rest of the globe has to feel left out! Namely Calgary, where the Giant 45 crew will be presenting the last public exhibition of Dust La Rock’s Best Of The Beast art show (all prints, no canvas).
It kicks off with an opening at the store on Wednesday, followed by a party at Hi-Fi Club on Thursday featuring our homies Smalltown DJs and Wax Romeo – it’s the ten year anniversary of their Hai Karate night (which has hosted many a FG artist through the years) so it’s sure to be a blow out! Stay tuned for more DLR art news very soon…
