Can’t find too much info on Norway’s Tony Jacobsen other than his stage name “We Are Monsters” and a few cool tracks. His soundcloud page highlights offers a slew of original remix and edit choices, he’s redone a few italo songs, some obscure 80s pop, and some indie numbers and they all sound a-ok. … MORE
The folks over at Scenery Records have been kind enough to assemble a split titled We Held On with Deep Space Orchestra and Bantam Lions. If you’re in the mood for some steady & spacey house music, I recommend dropping the dough for this one. For me the stand-out track is DSO’s Arif, filled with strong tribal percussion and psychedelic synths. … MORE
I picked this record up in San Francisco at the legendary Amoeba store. There’s a good mix of disco and some acidy stuff. The EP sounds like it could have been put out in either 1970-something or 90-something and the Phuture cover is pretty cool. Upon further investigation I found that this is… … MORE
Back in March, we had the pleasure of booking the boys of PBR Streetgang for an amazing shindig at the SoHo Beach House and we’ve since kept in touch. Tonight they’re back in town to play at the newly re-opened Electric Pickle. Here’s a little chat we had. Check out their US Tour schedule below along with their latest Autobrennt mix. … MORE
Yup that’s what she said (oh yes we did). Tropical French touch and some pretty nifty edits. Check this guy out for frozen drink background music or for nu disco dance floor goodies. C’est très bon! … MORE
Toulouse’s Thierry Moreira, Nicolas Sentenac, Henning Specht aka Hypnolove are releasing a new album titled “Ghost Carnival” (click to purchase) on May 13th. I’m particularly interested in this one as one of my fav disco personalities Mickey Moonlight (Ed Banger) produced the whole thing. “Come to My Empire” is the first single off the LP, it includes an amazing remix by Moonlight himself as well as mixes by Bufi & La Royale, Arpanet, and Turzi. … MORE
We hope you’ve already found out about Midnight Magic playing at Scaramouche tomorrow night (Saturday May 4th), if you haven’t – it’s true. Scaramouche is not a reference to the Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” it’s a tribute to the disco hay days in Miami. In the late 70s and early 80s, the disco craze and emergence of contemporary club culture manifested itself in the Omni Hotel just north of Downtown Miami. The name of the party was Scaramouche, hosted by local legend Bo Crane and commandeered by resident DJ, Joe Lenders. This members only affair hosted some of the biggest names in the disco scene and set the pace for Miami nightlife as a clubland mecca.
With a firm grasp on the roots of dance music and its legacy, along with a keen sense for emerging talent, Nightdrive Miami is bringing back the spirit of the discotheque… And Midnight Magic (one of our favorite disco outfits) is headlining the night. Dude Skywalker will also be performing their live debut alongside DJS Stravinsky, Ess & Emm, Laura of Miami, and Patrick Walsh. Check out our interview with the NY boogie band below and DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW! … MORE
