Prepare your speakers for this monster. It's rave meets fidget meets gnarly electro grit, like tetris in a blender. JOKERS OF THE SCENE drop their own synth driven remix, and the frenchy guitar laden "HEARTBEATS" finishes off the record. Play it loud! Hot one off MYLO's label 2112.

2009 DMC US FINALS: SANTOS HOUSE, NYC AUGUST 1st

dj shiftee
1st - DJ Shiftee

2nd - Mista-B

3rd - DJ Shmeeze

Yesterday's DMC 2009 US Finals at Santos House in New York CIty was a great experience for me. The winner was DJ Shiftee from New York; second place was San Francisco DJ Mista B; and third place was DJ Shmeeze from Fountain Valley in Southern California.

But I must say, beyond these three official winners, all of the DJ's that participated yesterday were winners as far as I am concerned. I really enjoyed everyone's routines. And despite the hiccups that happened such as humming coming out of the sound system, or simply a DJ's needle skipping, the event was a big success. I may have arrived at the battle a little late because of traffic congestion on the wack ass New Jersey Turnpike, but I still got there in time to witness the turntablist heaven that was this year's DMC finals.

And once again DJ Red Alert hosted the battle and Lord Finesse was providing the tunes. It was my first time hearing Lord Finesse on the turns, and he did a pretty damn good job keeping the crowd alive during one of the breaks during the competition.  Red Alert kept the crowd laughing and hyped up just a bit throughout the night. I wonder what's in the "Poo Poo" juice he kept on drinking all night? The crowd turnout was pretty good, as I saw a lot of people from the next generation of Hip Hop heads. There were a few youngsters in their early teens in attendance as well.

Techno-Realism Killed the Videogame Star: TRON Legacy

Posted by Charles Reece, August 2, 2009 11:42am | Post a Comment
Disney premiered a concept trailer for TRON Legacy at the San Diego Comicon (click the link for high-def version). Further evidence of the destructive effect techno-realism has had on the design of fantasy:


I found the little bit of dialog telling: The fallen player yells out, "You won, okay? This is just a game!" To which Quinn (TRON's hero) replies, "Not anymore." Indeed, the game within the movie has started to look more like quotidian reality rather than the beautiful design of the original fantasy.

First, compare the new light cycle crash:


to the old one:


And look how boring a dangling guy is now:


compared to back then:
