A fine day in the district.

Paul Mogg's got some interesting things in the works. Check out his Myspace for new cuts that I'm really impressed with. Also, he's got a poppier side project that is worth a listen, Baby Snakes.

Also, don't sleep on Trevor Jackson's remix of Black Ghosts. It's the first track featured on his player. B'More break with indie-ish vocals and circa 1999 Fabric Ed Rush and Optical-styled filthy bass stabs. Interesting.

This is probably one of the more exciting tracks I've heard in some time. Be sure to listen on good headphones:

Amon Tobin- Foley Room

Hot off the presses: My Q&A with Ewan Pearson is here.

Also, my review of Justine D's new mix in Earplug:

On the latest mix in the RVNG series, Justine D — best known as the woman behind New York's Motherfucker party — reveals a wide range of influences with a proclivity toward dance music's dark side. Compiled and mixed with assistance from Optimo's JD Twitch, the mix doesn't aspire to the Glaswegian duo's cut 'n paste, time-stretched mastery, opting instead for clean transitions between early electronic sounds (the Orb), contemporary underground disco (Danny Wang), industrial (Nitzer Ebb), and goth (Christian Death). With an obscure Weatherall remix of My Bloody Valentine sitting nicely amidst newer tracks from the likes of DFA's Hot Chip and Delia & Gavin, Justine D sets herself apart from legions of vacant-eyed party promoters as a true purveyor of underground sounds from the last 20 years.
