Elan Benaroch – Pick of 2010 – R.Stevie Moore

January 27th, 2011 | By Kerry

R.Stevie Moore

I heard about this guy from a friend looked him up on youtube and couldn’t believe the pages of homemade videos dating back to the mid seventies. this is one of the songs that maybe could have been commercial if it was recorded a little better. i guess that’s the point.. what makes music a product vs a creation.

DJ K-Tel – Pick of 2010 – The Slew “100%”

January 27th, 2011 | By Kerry

The Slew¬†”100%”

OK so I 1st heard Kid Koala plays this stuff live at his Code 2010 Olympics show¬†and I went “whooaaa”…I love Wolfmother and his jamming with those guys? ¬†I grew up a rocker and metal head. ¬†This stuff is amazing, combining the best of ¬†awesome classic heavy rock styles with hip hop beats and a wicked touch of the blues.¬†When I listen to this I think of the combo that Aerosmith and Run DMC did. ¬†This takes¬†that to a whole new level. ¬†If you like your rock, check this stuff out and they even offered¬†it up as a free download…check the link below and grab yourself some AWESOMENESS!

A couple years ago, turntablist extraordinaire¬†Kid Koala (a.k.a. Eric San) and his friend Dynomite D (a.k.a. Dylan Frombach) were assigned the task of soundtracking a documentary. Said film never saw the light of day, but its music‚Äîat the urging, and with the assistance, of Wolfmother’s old rhythm section‚Äîis about to. Ex-Wolf-members Chris Ross and Myles Heskett are now set to join¬†Koala on tour as they present The Slew, and they’ll unveil their very special set-up in the cities below. Working with live drums, bass, keys, and six turntables, the group is going to deliver 70-minute sets of raw guitar and some of the dopest manipulated beats you’ve heard all year.

Longwalkshortdock – Pick of 2010 – Tame Impala “Innerspeaker”

January 27th, 2011 | By Kerry

Tame Impala “Innerspeaker”

I dunno! this one totally caught me off gaurd. Really hooky melodies and strong but simple grooves wrapped in a lo-fi psych rock nastalgia blanket. Also, theres just a little bit of beatles style vocal harmony to hold it all together. I loved it the first time I heard it, and it keeps getting in my head and refusing to crawl out. I turns this shit UP!

DJ Holistic – Pick of 2010 – Nightmares on Wax “Smokers Delight”

January 23rd, 2011 | By Kerry

Nightmares on Wax “Smokers Delight”

this was an album I put on almost everynight before I went to bed. Great for passing out to and being lulled into psychedelic dreams and fantasies. This was an influential album for my love for electronic music.

DJ Holistic

Holistic has been enthralled with electronic music since grade 10 (1997). Starting with raves in Richmond at the bingo halls, progressing to after hours run by the russian mafia downtown, to finally house in the clubs where he soon grew tired of the stale sounds and the desire to finally escape house music. Holistic returned in 2007 with the SHAHdjs launching into full force promotions of dnb, dubstep and all things bass – but don’t be fooled, he loves it all!
