I saw Chromeo a few years ago at the festival I posted about earlier and they ruled. Fancy Footwork and White Women are such amazing albums. I'm down for anything they do.

Also, apparently I've completely lost track of time because when I saw them/when White Women came out was 2014 and I could've sworn that was either 2015 or last year. At least that means their music doesn't age!

Yah I saw Chromeo at Coachella in 2014 and they were amazing. They put on such a great show and are excellent musicians. I actually just received my 10-year anniversary Double-White Vinyl of Fancy Footwork and am stoked to listen to it tonight.

I also couldn't believe how long it had been since White Women came out. Night by Night is still one of my favorite songs ever.

White Women was a ridiculously strong album. I've totally lost count of the number of times I listened to that thing start to finish haha

Just found out a few hours ago that there's a new Emancipator album out tomorrow. His stuff is super chill and not at all big crowd-drawing festival EDM, but the last time I saw him was with Pretty Lights and he seems to usually get lumped into that group.

If you're into stuff like Tycho, Bonobo, Four Tet, RJD2 and even some of Pretty Lights' stuff and you haven't heard of Emancipator, you should really check him out. He's been active for over a decade now and this album that's coming out tomorrow will be his 5th.

Yeah I’ve replayed baralku like five times now and this is his best album imo. I love all his albums but this is the only one I just want to play through from start to finish every time. To me, it feels like a more mature and experimental sounding emancipator and drat it sounds dope

Edit - have you heard of nifty earth? I discovered him the same day baralku dropped and he has a style similar to emancipator but is more on the dancier side. Nifty earth almost sounds like “vintage” emancipator in some parts. After listening to his stuff it actually made me appreciate the new styles showcased on baralku even more

I’m seeing Phantoms tomorrow night at a smaller venue in Sacramento. They do a more live set of electronic music and are incredibly talented. This is the single off of their debut album.

New Bassnectar track that's a total throwback to old Bassnectar:

Bassnectar posted:

Naux Faux is a new Bassnectar side project with long-time collaborator Sayr, it’s a throwback to a long-lost era of deep, mystical electronic music: analog synths, shimmering sounds, pulsing chords, chopped up breaks… A tribute to the magical days of the side room, the sunrise set, the discovery of new spellbinding frequencies… Fans of “Mesmerizing the Ultra” will likely find special delight in this…

Although the finishing touches are still being added to the Naux Faux EP (thank you to all patient trainspotters!), we couldn’t resist including this remix of Psyopia on Reflective Part 2. It rounds out this 2nd chapter so nicely, and offers a glimpse of things to come…

Mesmerizing The Ultra was the first Bassnectar album I heard way back in like 2006 or whatever, so this is cool to hear.

I was at a wedding after-party this weekend in a small music venue with a club DJ. I was the first person to make a request, a couple hours in, and asked if he had any Eric Prydz he could play and he said yes, at which point a half dozen other people came up after me to also make requests. After about 20 minutes, he finally got around to playing Every Day, but at that very moment most of the people were taking a break from the dance floor. I didn't want to look like a buffoon jumping around by myself, but in retrospect, I should have and hopefully gotten people to come back and jump around too.

This is gonna bother me for years because I'm just that kind of crazy.

It is your responsibility to dance when the DJ plays a track you requested, even if you are the only one! I had a similar thing happen where I requested a song at a wedding, and then stepped outside for a smoke break and completely missed the song. The worst part was that apparently everyone went out on the dance floor for it....except me and my wife who were stealthily smoking a hash pen.

My extreme overreaction was to get tickets to see Eric Prydz at Rebel in Toronto on Friday of NYE weekend. He's also playing Echostage in DC 2 days later on NYE which he has mentioned as one of his favorite clubs, and the Prydz subreddit says his NYE 2014 concert was amazing so that would seem like the obvious choice except:

1) Rebel majorly renovated a year ago and Toronto goons say the sound is super good. Plus moving LED ceiling rings!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj9A8OkVp6U

2) One of my best friends lives in Buffalo and is willing to go with me and he's happy to get a hotel in Toronto (where I've never been) for the whole NYE weekend.

3) Probably nobody I know in DC would be up for it, plus it would be more than twice as expensive for the whole trip.

This would only be my 5th concert as an adult and the first one I've traveled for, so this is all new to me.

Travelling for shows is awesome! I'm going to Chicago tomorrow to see Illenium and then a couple days after I'll be seeing Tritonal and Seven Lions. It's really awesome when shows line up within a couple days of each other so you can really make the most of your trip.

This is going to be the 8th and 9th show I've seen this year which is crazy because I've pretty much never gone out to shows before this and I'm a little sad I've been missing out all these years.

Speaking of travelling for shows, anyone else going to Day for Night Fest in Houston this weekend? I'm road tripping there on Friday.

On the EDM-ish side, I'm seeing Pretty Lights (4th time), G Jones, Rezz (3rd time this year) and Justice (2nd time).

Unless you count James Blake as EDM, which I don't. I'm seeing him too though, and it'll be my 2nd time seeing him.

Weeeeeeeeird. Just saw Pretty Lights play Day for Night Fest and it wasn't a DJ set or a full band set. He did an improv live techno set with real synthesizers, which didn't sound anything like his usual stuff. It was cool to see and his visuals were on point as always, but there were thousands upon thousands of people in the crowd for that and I'm sure the majority of them didn't expect/want that, which isn't really unreasonable either considering what he usually does. He played a new song to close out the set and it sounded more like his stuff usually does, which I loved but it kinda bummed me out because I wished the whole set had been like that. I've seen him do full sets with his usual stuff before and they loving rule.

But hey, good on him for taking risks. A lot of artists wouldn't have the balls for that.

Are y'all going to any rad New Year's Eve shows? I know Bassnectar's having his NYE thing in Atlanta this year. I fuckin' wish I could go to that.

I'm about to see What So Not. It's not actually a NYE show, but close enough. Last NYE I saw Pretty Lights and Emancipator and that owned.

I was gonna go to Bassnectar NYE but I slept on tickets and it sold out.

Also my work schedule has me waking up around 3am and going to sleep between 6 and 7pm so a 9pm-2am show isn't really a thing that can happen anyway.

A bit late to the party, but I ended up going to Decadence NYE CO and it was a loving blast. I really enjoyed Bassnectar's set, and while I didn't I didn't originally care for his remix of Pineapple (or the original), it was so much fun live.

I started listening to his Immersive Mix to ~recapture the magic~, and they're both really solid. I wish he would post more mixes online.
Immersive Mix Side 1
Immersive Mix Side 2

Also really loved Odesza for the ball drop, but I was too far back to actually see their live performance lol. I think I'll just have to go see Odesza at Red Rocks and Bassnectar at his Bass Center show.


Edit: Also I'm a bit sad that RL Grime's Nova album didn't come out during his tour, and is slated for "ealy 2018" now. Hopefully that means ~this month~
