Nicolas Jaar – Time For Us b/w Mi Mujer


Nicolas Jaar has been making quite a stir on the electronic music scene since his last album, Space Is Only Noise, dropped earlier this year. At just 20years of age, this young lad is already gaining international notoriety for weirdly nocturnal jams. Jaar mixes ingredients from many genres like deep house, downtempo, and future jazz to create his own palette of morphine drenched noise accompanied with low Nick Cave-like vocals. Definitely someone to keep an eye on…

Who is Jesse Rice?


I don’t know but his tracks are sick. All we know is that it’s an SF based producer that brings the jams. ENJOY.

SpaceGhost // FSCK


And the tracks keep coming from Oakland resident Sudi Wachspress aka Spaceghost, his most recent 5 song ep seems fitting with the weather and vibe I’ve been getting with Oakland recently. Cold dark places with glimmers of optimism and hope. We are all waiting for the summer, blud. Keep the jams coming! Tired is the stand out track for me on this ep, it shows another musical side of Sudi that’s a bit more progressive than his other beats.

1. Drone
2. Dome Home
3. FSCK
4. Feed Me
5. Tired

here’s a video with an apperance by SpaceGhost and I dj’n a party in Alameda we didn’t play the song that the video was edited to. haha….

hooves tour 2011



My boys Hooves are embarking on another tour of the west. Pretty much my rock n’ roll bros from Phoenix, Arizona. Apparently they have created quite the reputation in Phoenix as crazy drunk lunitics, I always knew they had it in them. They also got band of the year or something like that in Phoenix aswell, siick! Try to make it out to one of their shows on this tour, they are filming a documentary about their crazy antics. So awesomeness will ensue.

I’m still looking for a place for them to play in the bay area, if you know a guy send me an email:
mikemelero[at]gmail[.]com

February 24th – w/ Porches, and Roar @ Lost Leaf – 9 PM – Tour Kickoff – SEND US OFF

heRobust – Albumin Ep


After the V-day party on friday I found this treasure. My head was pounding and stomach churning and my weed induced high was levitated to the next level by these psychedelic beats, they’re as abstract as they are traditional. Can you dig it?

There will always be a place in my heart for the hip hop instrumental, heRobust’s contribution to that scene combines a great sense of soul with a splash of 21st century glitched out elements and rounds it out with some sweet full sounding synths. This ep is put out by Saturate Records from hamburg as their second release, the young label has some potential, for sure…vibeee!

1. Grief Case
2. Snail Gate
3. Triceratopless
4. Lumber Party
5. Hold On
6. Peanut Blubber
7. Dunce
8. Chewy Bakka
9. Shark Howard
10. Shawty Swing My Way (Busted)
11. Half Fool
