Daft Punk- Make Love

Since I haven't been posting music as regularly as I'd like to, I'm inviting my good friend Kendra Borowski to contribute to the blog. She's a cracking good DJ (stay tuned for some online mixes), and has absolutely incredible taste in all types of music. I'll still be writing about media, branding, new tracks, etc.

The essential second installment from My Cousin Roy's Wurst Edits series:
Runaway- Ain't Afraid to Beg
According to the one-sheet:
"Runaway is a Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based duo comprised of techno auteur Marcos Cabral (he of Trapez fame) and disco gadabout Jacques Renault (Editions Disco). Marcos didn’t want us to mention that when he was a teenager in the late 80s, he used to perform as a mime in downtown Manhattan so that he could save up enough money to buy turntables and a mixer. Jacques was a bit embarrassed to let out that he was conceived in the back of a limousine while his father was on a “diplomatic” mission in Monaco in the 70s. (He’s now the French ambassador to Zimbabwe and has no relation to the Renault automobile company.) Quite remarkably, this is their debut single."

One of my favorite electronic acts in 2006, Cobblestone Jazz, just completed a session on Gilles Peterson's Worldwide. If you missed "India in Me" or "Dump Truck", hotfoot it to your local record emporium as soon as you can. Check out their live set here, and be on the lookout for more material to come on Wagon Repair this year. Also, well-placed sources tell me that Circlesquare has signed to the label following the demise of Output, and will be coming out with a new LP over the summer or so. Stay tuned for more.

Just back from LA, and I must say there is nothing worse that swapping 80 degree Sunday drives through Malibu Canyon for these frigid temperatures in New York. Arg.
Anyhow- A hectic schedule has prevented me from posting a lot lately, but here are a few tracks I've been enjoying:
Deerhunter- Hazel St.
Six Organs of Admittance- School of the Flower
