Danny Krivit, Pioneer of the disco edit and omnipresent zeitgeist of soulful house, is also one of the most important contemporary purveyors of vinyl. Having operated the Loft’s seminal Record Pool alongside Francois K and Larry Levin, with mixes appearing on WKTU and KISS FM, Krivit is now considered dischotheque royalty with almost 4 decades of innovation under his belt. On Valentine’s Day he will be bringing you a special extended set, an experiment in passion’s endurance.
One half of internationally renowned M.A.N.D.Y., Philipp Jung simply had a knack for making bodies move. He and his partner Patrick Bodmer’s highly successful and influential label is ever so aptly titled Get Physical, and I think you know what that means. Their shared musical proclivities invite you to be present with a symbiosis of complexity and elegance. An interpretation of classical elements through modern mediums is just the kind of paradox our fiery hearts long for–a vacillation between bright and dark, clean and dirty, soft and hard, tense and released. Furthermore, Philipp’s on-stage antics demonstrate an enthusiasm for the craft that is infectious by nature and will surely find you wherever you wander. If you aren’t yet privy to this caliber of experience, the time is now.

Hewlett-Packard has partnered with Ominfone to distribute the U.K. music provider’s MusicStation service on PCs sold in Europe, Ominfone announced Sunday.
The service, which boasts unlimited access to more than 6.5 million music tracks from the four major recording labels, distributes music in DRM-protected WMA files. Songs are downloaded to the user’s computer for online and offline play, but the songs are playable only as long as the subscription is active. [Read More]

The major record labels continue to prove that they absolutely have no idea how the Internet works or how to capitalize on it.
This week’s story involves the rock band OK Go. Four years ago, the band shot some quirky homemade videos and posted them on YouTube. Users saw the videos and embedded them on their own Web pages. OK Go was able to cut through the noise created by thousands of album releases every year and become well-known in certain circles, if not exactly world famous.
Now, the band is promoting its new album, “Of The Blue Colour of the Sky,” and has released a video for the song “This Too Shall Pass” on YouTube. Do you love it? So much that you want to embed it on your music blog? Too bad–you can’t.
On Monday, OK Go singer Damian Kulash wrote a post on the band’s message board to explain how this happened. Major label EMI owns the rights to the recording. And although EMIcan theoretically earn a little money from advertisements each time somebody plays one of its artist’s videos on YouTube, it can’t collect the money when the videos are embedded on another site.

Heading out to Utah this weekend for the start of the Sundance Film Festival? If so, one of the hardest screenings to sneak into is sure to be the just-announced addition Exit Through the Gift Shop a documentary by none other than everyone’s favorite anonymous celebrity street artist, Banksy. The film is described as a behind-the-scenes peek at Banksy’s work, or as Sundance promotes it, “a remarkable documentary that is part personal journey and part an expose of the art world with its mind-altering mix of hot air and hype.” Rumors are that this will be when the secretive artist finally reveals his true identity. But even if he did, would you really believe it? The guy is tricky. Here’s the trailer: [Read More]

Now that Jeffrey Deitch has been named the new director at Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art, he has just a few months left before he’s likely to close up shop on his famed New York gallery, Deitch Projects, to absolve himself of any conflicts of interest. And he’s decided to let the space go out in a blaze of high-profile glory with the announcement that Shepard Faireywill be the last artist to exhibit there (at least under his command — he may still hand off the gallery to someone else). Art Info reports that Fairey’s show will go up on May 1st, just a month before Deitch’s takeover in L.A. Here’s a bit about the planned exhibit: [Read More]

The city wants to put a stop to the fakes for sale in Chinatown. But at the same time, it’s putting the squeeze on legit longtime merchants. MATT HARVEY investigates as the ‘Counterfeit Triangle’ slowly disappears.
What’s left of Canal Street’s hawkers and small merchants—Hispanic stereo salesmen, Chinese dry-goods merchants, Lebanese gold sellers and Jewish landlords—all agree on one thing: “The fix is in.” Everyone knows the clock is ticking.
Two new hotels, including a 361-room Sheraton, are due to open on Canal in the next six months. Very soon, locals say, Canal Street will join Times Square, Astor Place, the Lower East Side, the Garment District and all the other former centers of down-and-dirty capitalist grit that have been safely gentrified. As Greg “Heavy” Duval, an African-American watch-peddler explains before the Christmas holiday, “Canal is on its last legs. They want to make this a franchise block.” [Read More]
