We’re always a fan of free stuff, especially when it’s free music from one of our favorite Brooklyn acts Body Language. We hosted them a while back at the Electric Pickle and it was definitely one of our more memorable live acts. Since then they’ve released their Grammar EP and are now giving it away with some brand new material on their website. … MORE
In a world where remixes and otherwise altered versions can often outshine their original tracks, it would be impossible to sift through all the amazing and pathetically generic “remixes,” “edits,” “rubs,” “versions,” and “mixes” out there in music land. I’ve decided instead to sift through our own archives from the past year and revisit some of my favorite cuts. I found that many of these artists have come and gone. or maybe I’m just not paying attention. If that’s the case I plan make new friends in the New Year but hold on to the old and perhaps get reacquainted.
In no particular order:

After an amazing live performance here in Miami by Brooklyn’s Body Language, I had the pleasure of seeing them again on their own turf. Their energy on stage just doesn’t get old! My heart had a little party in my chest cavity when I heard that their latest released single Falling Out includes a remix by another fav producer duo, Tiger & Woods. The original is a catchy-as-f**k disco track; probably my favorite of their grooves to date. Tiger & Woods give the track their signature treatment with a repetitively mesmerizing pace and full boogie bass stabs. The only question is which I’ll play out! Here they are for your streaming pleasure. Buy them HERE

This Saturday will be the second time Brooklyn band Body Language takes to The Electric Pickle stage. Not out in the back like last time but you’ll be able to find them setting up shop in the newly renovated EL BOLERO ROOM (upstairs). Last time they played was back in Feb of 2010 for the Pickles’ One Year Anniversary Block Party alongside Junior Boys and Metro Area. I had originally shown up that night to catch both JBs and MA do their thing on the decks but if I remember correctly I ended up outside in the back (and staying there) watching these kids put on an amazing live performance. I kept thinking to myself over and over that one day I’d do my best to bring them back down to Miami. Just one of those bands that kinda stuck around in my head I guess. On that note – Miami, you will not be disappointed!
Here’s a little segment I like to call…
The “FIVE THINGS BODY LANGUAGE WANTS YOU TO KNOW” segment.

Ian: Eat some stone crabs!
2. Tell us a little bit more about your relationship with Praveen of Percussion Lab and how he has helped you guys in your career.
3. Best gig you have ever played was in…
The Mill at Trinity College – although it sounded atrocious in there, kids were screaming and freaking out from the very first note and the energy didn’t let up until we ended 45 minutes later. It escalated to crowd surfing halfway in.. that was a first for us. Commodore Ballroom w/ Sia in Vancouver – Canadians just really know how to cut loose at shows. They even do this for the support act, cheers Canada!!!
Last week at Glasslands – the best Brooklyn crowd we’ve ever got to play for. Everyone packed it in and put their hands up, it was great times.
Ram, Gal Costa, Barbara Mason, Harry Belafonte, Cults, Idiot Glee, Little Dragon, Junior Boys, Deerhoof (Deerhoof vs Evil), Brandt Brauer Frick (You Make Me Real), Herbie Hancock (Sunlight), Lots of NYC radio – Hot 97, CBS 101.
Angelica: Wear more glow in the dark bikinis
