41/48 Days

 

 

Since 2009, Berlin-based duo Tale of Us has been creating top-shelf minimal techno that Germany is so well known for. They had an absolutely killer essential mix appearance at the beginning of the year. Similar to “deep house” last year, this year in electronic music is looking to be the rise of the “underground” and Tale of Us is definitely in the lead pack.

 

We caught them at APEX LA last year, and we can firmly say they’ll be taking us to another world in the Yuma tent come Saturday. Find us under the shark coated in purple hues.

 

Caribou – Can’t Do Without You (Tale of Us & Mano Le Tough Remix)

Thugfucker – Disco Gnome (Tale of Us Remix)

This installment of Latest and Greatest is devoted to our friends down by the Ecuator. The talent circulating down south has been consistently impressive. For the past year or so, they’ve experienced an influx of dark tech and if you haven’t already noticed: that’s my favourite electronic style.

 

 

Pompeya – Does [The Twelves Remix]

 

Though not quite dark and techy, a post about Brasil’s electronic scene without a mention of The Twelves is sacrilege. These two have oft been compared to Daft Punk – and for good reason. Here’s their newest funker.

Pompeya – Does (The Twelves Remix)

 

 

Malik Mustache – G My Humps

 

How can you not enjoy a basic club shot taken to new levels? Malik Mustache adds house and tech style to this 2005 hit and takes G-house into the future. G-Future.

Malik Mustache – G My Humps

 

 

Ishimaru – Fu-King EP

 

The newest EP from Ishimaru features his single Fu-King and remixes by Krash and Sound Cloup. It is dark, hard, and angry techno for the electro G inside us all.
Ishimaru – Fu-King EP

 

 

Fractal System – Need You Tonight

 

Fractal System takes INXS’ 80’s dance-pop classic and adds that Brasil sound. This track is dark, funky, and bassy; and with that famed guitar riff, we definitely need it.

Take 2 Entertainment | Tickets

It was seemingly yesterday that we celebrated USA…and now we’re already upon Christmas. Or so it would seem. There might not be snow falling from the sky (like there ever is in Long Beach anyway), but that doesn’t mean you can’t break out your Santa hats for another round of themed triple-decker boat fun and sunset sprays this coming July 26th.

The jolly tunes this time will be provided by Summertime staple Viceroy, the always lovely Jessie Andrews, GDD residents Bones and Troy Kurtz, Wilks and more primo talent we’ve seen making waves in the LA scene. One special addition (it’s quite a present indeed) to this installment is the after party aboard the Queen Mary. From past experience, nobody is quite ready for the night to end once docked. This time around there won’t be silly drivers doing silly things. Stay afloat awhile longer with tunes curated by our friends in GDD, Take2En, and a Super Duper Secret Special Guest. Still can’t muster the courage to take to the streets? Hang out for the sleepover; just call 877.342.0742 for rooms!

HOW TO ENTER

Standard procedure: The contest ends at 8PM Friday July 18th! The more ways you enter below, the better your chance is to win. Be sure to be ready to check your e-mail/twitter, because we’ll be giving it to the first person who responds when the contest is over. See you guys there!

The Do Lab | Tickets

The Do Lab has been taking over the LA underground scene this year and we’re all about it. They’ve consistently brought out big names of the underground. Tomorrow night, they’ll be hosting two artists that have been keeping our ears happy for the past year. They come from somewhat opposite sides of the sound spectrum; but that just means it’ll be a great ride of a night. And there’s going to be a Super moon highlighting the fun!

Disco house by Mighty Mouse and deeper tech selections from Option4 will be blasting all night at King King. You should be there, especially cause tickets are super cheap for this kind of quality. Be sure to catch that big orb in the night sky too!
