Egyptian Nipples

Egyptian Nipples always causes some giggling from Patrick and I when reading track titles and artists names during our Radio Nightdrive show (every Thursday 2-4pm on klangbox.fm). We’re not laughing at the actual music though, Egyptian Nipples is a pretty serious project from Massimiliano Paglara and Jules Etienne – two very talented producers ;) … MORE

The Egyptian Lover

Tonight we have the pleasure of hosting one of the American electronic music pioneers, The Egyptian Lover. Straight from LA, this dude was dropping bass before many of us were even born. With the help of his trusty Roland TR-808 drum machine, his hit singles including “Egypt, Egypt” and “I Need A Freak” laid the foundation for the vast array of electronic genres from electro to hip-hop to house music. If you’re in the Miami area, stop by and perhaps snag a copy of our limited edition Egyptian Lover posters designed by Kent Hernandez. get your last-minute pre-sales HERE … MORE

The Drive Tour



The film is suspenseful and action-packed, Ryan Gosling is a dreamboat, but the soundtrack to Drive is what caught my attention when this film rolled out in 2011. It brought me back to 2008 when I bought my first DJ equipment and discovered this obscure collective called Valerie out of France. … MORE

Bloc

Ahoy Maties, Nightdrive has been cordially invited to cover the 2012 edition of Bloc Festival in London!

Bloc is an annual music festival in the UK that brings together a potpourri of beat masters, DJs, and artists who inhabit the netherworlds of Techno, House, IDM, Hip-Hop and Dubstep. It is not without reason that this year’s edition of Bloc is one of the most anticipated electronic music events of  the year considering that its line up is a veritable who’s who of the pantheon of modern music mythology. I look at Bloc like a mountain with a firm foundation in the UK Bass scene, including Joy Orbison, Hyperdub founder Kode9, Scuba, and Digital Mystiks amongst others. As you go up the mountain you will find a mix of the lauded newer DJs (Art Department, Jaime Jones), a dash of premiere Pitchfork electronica (James Blake, Nicolas Jaar, Battles) and other high priests of IDM (Four Tet, Apparat, Squarepusher). As you maneuver past cravasses towards the peak you encounter the behemoth A.T.O.L., a supergroup of the Berlin underground consisting of Modeselektor, Berghain resident DJ Dettmann and Shed. When you reach the summit you will find men of myth that require absolutely no introduction: minimal emperors Richtie Hawtin and Ricardo Villalobos, Detroit masters Jeff Mills and Carl Craig, Orbital and New Wave progenitor Gary Numan. Joining these EDM demigods are Amon Tobin and his reality-bending ISAM live show, Flying Lotus, G funk all-star Snoop Dogg and that venomous villian they call DOOM. … MORE

Four Tet Ticket Give-Away

Tonight Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) will be making his way to the Bardot carpet for a live performance.  Anyone who knows electronica, knows Four Tet.  Going back to 1998, Hebden has a track record that only legends can boast.  With influences ranging from hip-hop to folk, jazz to IDM, he’s remixed Aphex Twin, toured with Radiohead, collaborated with Burial and Thom Yorke and released seven full length albums and three remix albums.

In a last-minute celebration of tonight’s show, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the 20th person who correctly answers this very easy trivia question:

What was the name of Kieran Hebden’s first band?

Please email all responses to info@nightdrivemiami.com with your full name.  The winner will added to the door list +1.

Music For A World Unknown

So they say that Dissident Records died back in 2009.  This UK label, headed by notorious EDM aficionado Andy Blake achieved cult status for its consistent top-notch quality and refreshingly purist approach to recording and distributing music.  With little to no internet presence or marketing outreach, the label simply let the music speak for itself.  It was built with a lofty and genuine ideal, and low and behold, they came.  Featuring artists such as Den Haan, Hard Ton, Cage & Aviary, Clap Rules, Neville Watson and many others, Dissident was on a roll.  But like I said, the label closed shop back in 2009 and Blake has moved on to his new projects, Cave Paintings and In Plain Sight.  However, releasing a compilation for ol’ time’s sake never hurts, thus we have Veros Artis Volume 4: Music For A World Unknown.  As expected, the 10-track release gives us a good taste of that left-of-center disco, techno and house that made the label famous including a few previously unreleased tracks.  You can buy the compilation HERE
