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

More dates will be announced soon, don’t forget to pick up Ultraviolet on iTunes, Amazon or the FG Webstore (where you can also cop Kid Sis tees – separate or bundled with the CD – and other golden goodies.) Ticket presale links after the jump. Read More
As mentioned earlier, A-Trak and Chilly Gonzales teamed up at Joe’s Pub last week. Says A-Trak: “Often times it’s the casual shows, the “oh I’m just doing this on the side for fun” shows that end up being my favorite ones. Maybe it’s because I love to improvise. Or maybe it’s because these are shows I do with my friends, which is fertile ground for creativity. Last year it was my set at the Do Over. This year so far, my favorite performance was this little guest spot I did at Chilly Gonzales’s Piano Talk Show at Joe’s Pub in New York last Thursday. It was barely rehearsed, only 15 minutes in length, and we were both coming in from long flights with little to no sleep. Watch the result, I hope you enjoy it!”
The man, the myth, Gonzales has taken up residency at Joe’s Pub this month for a series of “Piano Talk Shows” – tonight’s edition will feature our own A-Trak and a surprise guest. Will it reach the heights of his AWK piano battle? Check it out and see! And if you can’t make it to Lafayette St this evening, be sure to download Mr G’s amazing, insane new Pianist Envymixtape.
It’s that time of year again! Love is in the air, and our Chicago bros J2K and Autobot of Flosstradamus are back with the fifth edition of their yearly FlosstraPROMus. It’s going down Friday (2/12) at Lincoln Hall, get your tickets here. The guys have also put together a lil themed mix for the occasion, download here (right click + save as) and check the tracklist here.
As Billboard just announced, our friends Kidz In The Hall will be hitting the road in support of their forthcoming LP, and taking Donnis (and 88 Keys and Izza Kizza) along for the ride. Check the full “Crowd Control Tour” dates after the jump.
