I'm playing with Dirtyloud!! OMG!!

You guys. OMG. Dirtyloud is playing at EPR. You like, don't even know. Like, I'm really excited. Like really REALLY excited. You know why? BECAUSE I *$&#@ING LOVE THEM.

Once upon a time, I was playing a New Years show with a certain EPR resident a few years ago. Until then, I'd only ever had the uber-opener slots before the clubs were even open, so I'd never played in front of an actual crowd before. And here I was, closing a New Years show in front of a packed crowd. Everyone was going nuts. My versus partner was rather wasted, and was offering no help. My nerves were a wreck. My hands were shaking. And what did I open with? THIS.



For a while, Dirtyloud was my little secret. Their stuff was out for a bit before it actually started hitting the charts, and when it did, I was excited that people would finally KNOW these songs that I loved when I'd play them out.

They had quite a unique style. in my opinion, they are the epitome of "progressive electro." They are actually one of my biggest inspirations, because they perfectly blend heavy, driving, buzzy, glitchy electro with pretty chords that get stuck in your head. Prime example: the second half of "Trash House Music." Check out those chords, man!



I feel like all of their songs are my favorite songs. Like this one!



And this one! I mean, who doesn't love big booty bitches??



And this one, that I really like because it's *kinda* like a love song, without all the mushy parts that make me hate love songs.



And of course, their latest track to tear up the charts, "Dae Guetta."



As for freebies, you like those? I LIKE THOSE. Get "Selecta" for free right from their Soundcloud.



Want more free stuff? HOW ABOUT A WHOLE MIXX?? (FYI: there's a free download link if you view the track on their Soundcloud page!)



So if you haven't gathered already, Dirtyloud is playing at EPR, with opening support by yours truly and my buddies Girls N Boomboxes. This show will PWN.

I'm opening for Jack Beats!



When our noble leader told us that we were having Jack Beats out in the spring, at first I was in complete and utter disbelief. As the date crawled closer and closer, I started to realize how big of a deal this is. Not only are they a huge act, but their remix of “Drop the Pressure” by Project Bassline holds some special memories for me.

Remember Blake’s on Telegraph? That bar/restaurant with the dingy basement that used to house hundreds of EDM events and rock shows? You know, the birthplace of EPR? “Drop the Pressure” reminds me of that place. When EPR was first taking off in the summer of 2009, back when the sparse crowd of our closest friends transformed into an uncontrollable rager in a basement, this song was everywhere. I remember driving to Blake’s from the city, carpool or not, rain or shine, despite school or work on Thursday morning, parking waaaaaay down Durant, and walking to the place in that eerie yellow light. As I’d approach the door, I could literally feel the floor vibrating beneath my feet. I’d come in and walk down the stairs, and that song would be playing (that, or MSTRKRFT’s “Bounce”).

That was the summer I threw my first rave. That track was in my set at my very first gig EVER.

And then, at EDC in Las Vegas last summer, that song was a brief moment of clarity among the chaos. On Saturday night, the place wasn’t really that packed...until 50,000 people showed up at midnight. I was like, “Where did all these people come from?” I didn’t even know where I was, until I heard that song, and realized I was at the Neon Garden stage. I looked out at the crowd, and realized how truly massive that event was. Good times. Good times, indeed.

So, you see, folks...this is kind of a big deal for me. And you know what else is pretty cool? I get to see them perform at the Ultra Music Festival, just days before I get to open for them in San Francisco.

F&%# YES.

So. Next week at EPR (not tomorrow): Jack Beats, with opening sets by yours truly, the infamous Jays One and B33son, and sets in the side room by Kirin Rider, DRRN, Chronologix, M3RC, and D Menis. Tickets will be on sale at EPR 195 tomorrow from 9-11pm across from the ticket booth. Don’t snooze, don’t lose! This show WILL sell out. See you there! :)

Go “like” their page for a free download! DO IT. THE BASS GODS COMMAND YOU. http://www.facebook.com/jackbeatsmusic

Another song you probably know and love:



More badassery:

EPR/Love and how much it sucks/Songs about love and how much it sucks

Happy &%$#*!@ Valentine’s Day everyone! I’m really not very enthusiastic about this occasion. At least I didn’t get dumped just days before this awful holiday this year, unlike several years in the past! There’s an up-side to everything, I guess? Yeah, whatever. Love sucks. Boys suck. Bah humbug,

ANYWAY, tomorrow night, I’m playing at the Bloody Valentine edition of Electro Pop Rocks featuring Doorly and my friends Eric Sharp and DRRN. It's DRRN's birthday! Woo! I will probably be wearing some amount of fake blood. I’m not sure if I’m going to cover myself with the stuff, but I feel that at least a little is necessary.

There are a couple of songs that I’ve had on repeat lately. One is about love and how great it is, and the other is about how much it sucks when it goes wrong.

First up, I have Ken-C’s remix of “Love You Like A Love Song” by Selena Gomez (yes, Selena Gomez. Don’t laugh before you give it a listen).



Ken-C (who’s actually a Bay Area local who has migrated to So Cal) turns it from a sappy little Disney piece of crap that only the likes of Justin Bieber’s girlfriend would sing, into an electro rave power anthem. I dig.

Second, I have a remix of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know” by some guy/guys called 4FRNT. Now. I have NO IDEA who these guys are. I can’t find anything about them anywhere. I can’t even find this song for sale or download anywhere. They have a Facebook fan page with nothing on it. Who are they?!?! This remix is SO. GOOD. I find it especially relevant because when I first heard it, I felt like I was singing Kimbra’s part with regards to the most recent asshole to break my heart. Boo hoo. Check it out:



If you know anything about 4FRNT, tell me! Comment! Post it on my Facebook! SOMETHING! Who knows, maybe they’ll show up at a future EPR if I can find these people...
