The word "DJ" can be a very ambiguous term. It can mean a turntablist, music producer, remixer, someone who curates music for an audience, an artist using electronic based instruments; also, some straddle the line of electronic artist and full on rock band, and any number of additional definitions. But for the purpose of this blog, the term "DJ" is going to mean the group of artists holding residency in Coachella's Sahara Tent, aka "The Dance Tent," and by any means necessary, they are are going to get your off your ass and make you dance.

New Electro/Techno 12"s Coming This Weekend:

Itamar Sagi

"SELIO" is an uplifting and punching slab of techno, with a really fat beat and ITAMAR's trademark chord stabs. On the flip is "SERIES 1," a paced down and trippy number. Very atmospheric in the mood, but with a bouncy groove.


Raw synth line & chord driven dub techno house (?) by the mysterious MOD.CIVIL project (ORNAMENTS). If you like that dark, dubby sound (LEVON VINCENT, FACHWERK, MIKE DEHNART), this is totally for you. Also includes an "acapella" GHOST tool, perfect for building the tension.
