In Flagranti - Genital Blue Room
In Flagranti, "Genital Blue Room" (rapidshare link)
In Flagranti, "Subvariety" (rapidshare link)
In Flagranti, "Uncanny Hinting" (rapidshare link)
After that look back at electro, let's take a look at one of the new players bringing the genre back to life. In Flagranti haven't gotten the same amount of love as the Ed Banger peeps, Simian Mobile Disco, Boys Noize, you know the list. I think that will be changing over the next few months, so let's do our part.
Genital Blue Room was a 12" from early this year, but don't let the bizarro title scare you away. This is great electro-house music with a distinct disco influence. Not sure which one is my favorite, as both songs on the A side are phenomenal. The title track has a sort of distorted disco sound, what with the deadpan vocals and smeared refrain. It's the pulsing instrumental that really drives this one along, complete with a mild freakout midway through. "Subvariety" is on some totally different ish, as this one is much heavier and punkier.
-NYC, Lit is going to be crazy tonight. One of the best parties, Dirty Down, goes down in the basement, with special guest DJs Dave P and JDH of Fixed and Mr. Andersonic, booty bass master.
-Dimitry is spinning at Diesel in Union Square
-Philly, celebrate the Wooden Shoe's 30th birthday night at Upstair's at Sal's. Anarchy in Philly, motherfuckers!
-Catchdubs and Jones of Caps and Jones, on East Village Radio from 6-8 tonight
-51:51 has the goods on Philly this weekend and for NYE. Don't forget my Philly Weekly preview for NYE and this week's preview of Paper Street's jawn at The Ballroom at the Bellevue. If you want to be on the list for this one, btw, you need to RSVP by tonight. If I'm in the city Sunday, I'll be at Crimp Yr Hair's Globothermonuclearwar blast-off at Upstairs at Sal's, for the record.
