Proud to announce that I will be spinning at Bardot in Hollywood this Monday as part of the highly touted “School Night” hosted by KCRW’s own Chris Douridas. This event has had some legendary talent come thru over the years and I’m proud to be spinning in between bands this Labor Day. If you are in the hood come thru for an eclectic night of underground jams.

I also am sharing some super indie jammies with you today. When I was in Monterrey, Mexico this March before SXSW, some natives hipped me to this electronica band named Teen Flirt. They have some pretty great demos, including this reworking of Aaliyah’s “Rock the Boat” called “Float”. And don’t miss their very creative Mixtape. Loving their sound. So hot right now!

BASEMENT JAXX MEET MELECHTRIC

Basement Jaxx are one of the best electronic acts of all time. They put on a amazing live show, throw down great DJ sets and are some of the best MUSICIANS making EDM. Their new video for “Back 2 the Wild” showcases just how out there they can get. The song isn’t too pounding or housey, but that’s where Melecthtric steps in. One of my favorite things about Soundcloud is that artists and producers are always coming up with random ass genres and words to describe their music. ┬áMelechtric seems to have adopted the phrase Bongo House for his booty shaking remix of this Jaxx track. What does Bongo House sound like? Imagine Bonde Do Role and Solidisco coming together to make a Tropical dancefloor burner. I already got my Pina Colada in hand.
