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:

Cinderella Ltd
EPHEMERIS EP 12"
ARPIAR006

Fresh off the label headed by RARESH and RHADOO comes this techno chugger EP. The first track hits like a techno track, but is mellowed by an almost lullaby in the background. On the flip is a loopy house cut, begging to be toyed with and layered...a groover!    


Kenny Larkin

SKETCHES EP-SHLOMI ABER 12"
BAO018

KENNY & SHLOMI ABER both drop a mix of "SKETCHES." KENNY's is pure techno, with amazing drum progressions and a hypnotic lead that spans 10 minutes of funk. ABER's version is tougher with a phat bassline, a jazzy rhythm, and a snare infused shuffle.
