Orbital Myspace

Orbital Myspace

Orbital has been around ages. K only a couple of decades, but I am sure some of their select tunes will be timeless. “Halcyon + On + On” is one of the first electronic tracks I listened to as a kid. I remember hearing it while watching the movie Hackers. I am not sure that movie will stand the test of time, but I promise the track will.

Another great track of Orbital’s  I recommend is “Belfast.”

There is even a track Pitchfork acknowledges. “Chime” was listed in their Pitchfork 500 list.

Carl Craig’s remix of Alter Ego’s “Gary” is one of those songs that I absolutely love and can’t get out of my head, but I think doesn’t get the appreciation it deserves. It is one of those songs that can be played by legendary DJs such as Carl Craig and John Digweed night after night, but never be posted on all the hipster blogs that now seem to focus solely on Electro music. Even if you don’t like truely ‘Techno’ music I think you need to give this song a listen. Remember to support your artists! Peace & Beats


Gui Boratto is an excellent minimal, house and techno composer from Brazil. Signed to the Kompakt label with other talented acts like Superpitcher and Michael Mayer; this is one of the labels releases. Gui Boratto’s “Chromophobia” is not a minimal album like you probably would expect from German label. The tempo is always changing in the album. You got your minimal tracks like “Gate 7” and “The Blessing.” You also have “Beautiful Life” which has a house vibe to it. Finally, you have a nice electronica track titled “Xilo” and the standout techno track “Shebang” to really get your head nodding.

Gui’s Tour Dates

DJ Tocadisco – The Black Series (Part 2)

Tech-House at its finest. Amazing build up before the bass drops on “Morumbi.”

Deadmau5 – Faxing Berlin [Mau5trap]

Deadmau5 is one of my favorite progressive house djs from last year. With Chris Lake’s take on “Faxing Berlin” I know why. I can’t wait to see Deadmau5 at Coachella this year. I wonder if I will enjoy seeing him early in the afternoon in the blistering heat as much as I would if I saw him at night like at TAO or something. For some reason I don’t think I will.

In honor of MSTRKRFT releasing their spring tour dates and their new kick ass poster I have been listening to MSTRKRFT The Looks today. I remember walking into the front gate of Coachella last year and hearing MSTRKRFT play Daft Punk’s “Rolling & Scratchin.” The bass was so loud and could be heard over all the other stages. Needless to say, my friend and I sprinted over to the stage as fast as we could. Peace & Beats
