  • SESSION 953 : THE BAND WAGON 05.11.11

    Mixed by Taimur Agha & Thugfucker

    Thugfucker (Life and Death | NYC)
    Former international aid worker teams up with Icelandic security specialist and former top model to create an international DJ supergroup. Certainly not what you’d expect from a group called Thugfucker – but then Greg Oreck and Holmar Filipsson often do tend to defy expectations.  One a New Yorker transplanted to Europe, the other an Icelander transplanted to New York. Both from a strong musical background with an almost obsessive dedication to the art of wild party instigation. Growing up on an Icelandic commune full of some of the country’s finest political thinkers, Holmar eschewed his past and all the heady philosophy of his childhood to move to New York and search out more physical and visceral methods of bringing happiness to the masses. Meanwhile Greg was in the midst of a successful (if short-lived) political career in America when he too became disillusioned with the duplicity and self serving interest of those around him. Disturbed by the void he saw in most people’s lives, it was in the dark depths of the New York underground club scene that he finally found his true calling. Unbeknownst to each other, Holmar and Greg then propelled themselves along similar paths, throwing parties, honing their musical & studio skills and searching out inspiration from a wide variety of musical sources. Then one late night, in a cloudy alcohol fueled discussion about the plight of the genetically Rhythm-Blind, Holmar and Greg recognized the depth of their shared passions. Thugfucker was born.

  • NEWS: BRAIN SIGNALS PREDICTS MUSIC SALES

    By Science

    Scientific inspiration sometimes comes from unlikely sources. Two years ago, Gregory Berns, a neuroeconomist at Emory University in Atlanta, was on the couch with his kids watching American Idol. One of the contestants sang the melancholy hit song “Apologize” by the alternative rock band OneRepublic, and something clicked in Berns’s mind. [Read More]

  • NEWS: 20 YEARS AFTER THE TOMPKINS SQUARE RIOT

    By Seth Tobocman – The Shadow

    On August 6,1988, the worst riot in 20-years erupted outside New York City’s Tompkins Square Park on the Lower East Side. On that night, nearly 500 police stormed into this popular neighborhood, assaulting hundreds, while trying to squelch the protest against a midnight park curfew. The obscure law allowing the closing of the park hadn’t been enforced by the city in decades.

    Tompkins Square Park, considered by many as the heartbeat of the Lower East Side, is surrounded by a neighborhood populated by Latinos, punk rockers, artists, eastern European immigrants and a recent influx of wealthy professionals.[Read More]

  • NEWS: MUSIC AND OUR MIND


    By Laurence O’Donnell-Cerebromente

    “Music is so naturally united with us that we cannot be free from it even if we so desired” (Boethius cited by Storr).
    Music’s interconnection with society can be seen throughout history. Every known culture on the earth has music. Music seems to be one of the basic actions of humans. However, early music was not handed down from generation to generation or recorded. Hence, there is no official record of “prehistoric” music. Even so, there is evidence of prehistoric music from the findings of flutes carved from bones.[Read More]

    Feeling in the mood for something fresh? Something to stir your soul and get your head bobbing? Then the answer may lie here, in an album beautifully sewn together with groove injected vibes that stretch from London to New York. Formerly of 90?s DnB Soul influenced collective 4Hero and not to mention a whole heap of other collaborative projects and aliases such as Tek 9, Jacob’s Optical Stairway, DKD and Silhouette Brown, the time has finally come for Denis ‘Dego’ McFarlane to shine using his own name. And what better way than with his new album Wha Him De Pon? a soulful, jazzy and synth infused LP, perfect for bumpin’ in the summer sunshine.[Read More]

  • NEWS: WHAT MADE NUBLU’S REPUTATION


    By Larry Rother – NY Times

    From the outside the club appears to be just another shuttered and somewhat grotty East Village storefront, and the interior, with its scarred wooden floor and graffiti-daubed walls, isn’t any more impressive. Instead, it’s what happens onstage that has made Nublu’s reputation as an incubator of musical talent, with some of the most adventurous and varied offerings in the city. [Read More]
