Skip&Die

Friday, October 26th, 2012 by Sjoerd

Township bass // Globalista Punk

Producer Crypto.Jori (Jori Collignon) and vocalist/visual artist Cata.Pirata (Catarina Aimée Dahms) wrote and recorded “Riots in the Jungle” while traveling urban townships of South Africa, forming an unheard melting pot of original music that blends traditional sounds from Africa, South America and Europe into explosive electro-punk attitude and modern day wobble. Showing a typical Dutch blunt open-mindedness, coupled to schizophrenic traditions still present in South Africa, Skip & Die draws from their personal experiences to tell a story spanning multiple continents in a waterfall of languages.

World music on acid brings the noise.

C2C

Friday, February 24th, 2012 by Sjoerd

Turntableism // electronic

C2C are a turntable act from France who are expanding into original music production. If you are into turntableism this band cannot be a stranger, having won the DMC team championship 4 of times in a row. If you’re not such a fan of people standing behind record players bobbing their head and moving their hands swiftly and accurately, fear not. Listen to ‘F.U.Y.A’ & ‘Down the Road’ and discover there’s more to turntableism than just rythmically moving a record forward and backward. Also check out ‘Tribute to Louis Armstrong’ which sees a fully scratched up rendition of Mack the Knife.

Scratched up tunes laced with deep bass.

Hey DJ Friday: Summer Selections

Friday, August 3rd, 2007 by Paul Irish

I’ve been meaning to put together a DJ mix for this summer. Something capturing the vibe of the patio dancefloor, the dudes on the wall looking for a head-nodder and the people of all flavors looking for a collective groove. Let me tide you over with a couple songs that would make the mix, and naturally all deserve a post of their own. Enjoy some Tru Thoughts treats with Freddie Cruger (aka. Red Astaire) and Flevans. Then bring it up a notch for Groove Armada’s killer single.

Freddie Cruger – Pushing On (feat. Linn) (from VA – Shapes 07 2007)
Flevans – 12 Apostles (from Cold Hands EP 2007)
Groove Armada – Get Down (from Soundboy Rock 2007)

Hey DJ Friday: TTC

Friday, June 8th, 2007 by Paul Irish

More straight fire comes from France (It’s not blog house this time). The boys Cuizi Cuiz (last year’s Aurgasmic Adventure), Tacteel, Teki Latex and DJ Orgasmic are all striking out on their own, while still collaborating on some real heavy beats.

TTC – Travailler (Dj Orgasmic Remix) (Thx, Fluokids!)

Hey DJ Friday: Chris Isaak and dub

Friday, December 22nd, 2006 by Paul Irish

Dub feels like the perfect match for one of the all-time classic love songs, “Wicked Game”. Business Man is a pseudonym of electronic music artist of the year Trentem?ller, and he continues to execute with finesse.

Hey DJ Friday: Certified Bananas

Thursday, December 7th, 2006 by Paul Irish

Sizzling off Certified Bananas’ new mixtape Sprang, this hot little number stylishly blends the Little Mermaid classic with the baltimore club sound. Certified Bananas, based in Providence, are two very talented and kind gentlemen (Sammy Bananas recut this track exclusively for Aurgasm). You can hear their signature sound of club beats, retro tracks and clever mashups in the clubs of Boston and New York frequently. Seek ‘em out.

Certified Bananas – Kiss The Girl (Baltimore Remix)

UPDATE: If you’re feeling this, the boys are in Boston at the Enormous Room TONIGHT! Also, drop by Discobelle to peep their brand new exclusive mix ‘Sweden on Blast’. Holla.

Hey DJ Friday: Justin Timberlake vs Corey Hart

Friday, September 29th, 2006 by Paul Irish

Starting today, Aurgasm delivers a weekly dose of nightlife-inspired music in a feature we call “Hey DJ Fridays”. My good man LasterD starts it off. -Paul

Kicking things off is a mash-up of the recent worldwide pop hit, Sexyback, with the 1984 pop hit, Sunglasses At Night. This track bridges two dance classics spanning over two decades.
