two great shows in two nights

April 23, 2010

well make that three if you include tomorrow night getting to dj with panda slap at an art gallery/fund raiser.  [aside]

saw Ghislain Poirier last night at HiFi.  amazing! it was a typical thursday night (smalltown dj’s disco/electro kid crowd) and Poirier still killed it.  I am going to step out a little and say that Poirier is one of the producers/djs who has shapped and inspired the music I have been following for the last 5 years. . .right up there with Diplo and Kode9.  they all have their unique sound and are leaders of their trade.  all djs that I have followed from their first internet mixes to semi-stardom.  this is the third or fourth time I have seen Poirier, and each time it’s a totally new experience. last night he played lots of hits off of his new album ‘running high’.  massive sound, heart crunching bass with some high techno/rave/stadium dj bleep bloops to keep the crowd dancing.   MC Zulu had control of the mic all night to build hype.  A black dude wearing sunglasses in the club mc’ing over a white french canadian seems to drive girls wild – there were always at least five of them on the stage.  some critical feedback for Zulu (don’t take too much offence), but you have to stop trying so hard.  plus you don’t need to sing on top of every beat all night long, you can let Poirier’s sounds shine through a little bit.  MC Zulu was rocking a shirt that said “MC Zulu” and he had a hand held camera that he used to film himself .  weird.

GOTAN PROJECT – La Gloria from Ya Basta records on Vimeo.

tonight is none other than RSD, with Sub Swarma.  I am really excited about RSD.  love of jah light and pretty bright light are two songs that always seem to creep back into my mixes, starting years ago when people started talking about this whole dubstep idea.  RSD is Rob Smith from Smith and Mighty and the sounds have matured nicely over the last 15 years. (thanks for the records J + M, I had them pulled out all night).  the Smith and Mighty Dj Kicks (1998?) will be blasting in my house all day tomorrow and I can’t wait. here are so tracks to keep you company while I head off to the club. . .

NYC NYE 09

January 9, 2009

nyeflyerback

just got back from a trip to the east coast where I was lucky enough to hear some really great music on NYE.  perfect way to spend the first 6 hours of 09!  this was the third time seeing drop the lime in the last year and he killed it again.  every performance gets better! other than the needles bouncing from too much bass he really brought it.  highlight for me was hearing ‘where’s my money’ on a big system (secretly I would start with this song if I dj’d new years eve).  drop the lime even backspun the track (for me I am sure. . . ) can’t forget Michna! seems to be a name we will see more and more of! MATTHEW DEAR! I got to see him live! I have been a huge fan for years, so this was icing on the cake.  to be honest, it was kind of weird going from drop the lime playing new drum and bass and singing and pumping his fists to matthew dear playing (really nice) housetechnominimal.  but the crowd started bumping and dancing right away nonetheless.
