Go to whatever church you worship at, whether that be the dance floor or a cathedral, and be content for all the good in life.

Give back to the community you are a part of, here’s a few good places to start, these are LA specific but wherever you go home for the holidays should surely have similar opportunities.

$25 show at the observatory. Gucci's been real hot lately.

Zoe Citterman - R&B Director

Michael Kiwanuka at The Fonda - 12/12

Michael Kiwanuka's got a really solid old school soul sound. I saw him a few years back at Lollapalooza and he puts on a gorgeous show. Check Home Again, or his new record, Love & Hate.

Kaytranada at Novo LA - 12/28 + 12/30

Going to be a really fun show. Please go, because I can't + so so badly want to. Check his 99.9% project or his Chance + Solange Soundcloud remixes. Dope.

Breakbot (DJ Set) at The Standard - 12/31

Baby I'm Yours is so so funky (+ has one of my favorite music videos). Dude's done some really cool Boiler Room sets too, and I'm thinking this will probably be on par with that. Check it if you like disco/funk.

Robert Glasper is a legend of jazz keyboards. The Experiment features Derrick Hodge, Mark Colenburg, and Casey Benjamin, and has released critically acclaimed albums Black Radio Vol. 1 and 2, as well as their new release ArtScience. Should be a good show.

My sister got to see them at Red Rocks this summer, and she enjoyed their show very much.

Toh Kay @ The Regent Theatre – 12/09

Frontman of Streetlight Manifesto doing a solo show. He’s an incredible musician so I’m sure it’ll be great.

Children of Bodom are a very very popular Finnish melodic death metal band. They make some very heavy metal while incorporating synthesizers and other alternative techniques to form their own sound.

Blink-182 at The Forum - 12/10  
The kings of pop-punk are touring for their new comeback album, which is actually pretty good if you give it a listen. I don’t see how a person could have a bad time at Blink-182. Maybe you’ll meet a cute girl at the rock show.

Animals as Leaders at The Mayan - 12/15
These guys just came out with a really good new album of complex progressive metal. A great metal concert for musicians and instrumentalists in particular.

Kavinsky Outruns Los Angeles

Kavinsky Outruns Los Angeles

Many people know who Kavinsky is because of his signature tune “Nightcall” which was featured in the 2011 film Drive. For me however, the story first began on July 4, 2007 when I spent America’s Independence Day in Amsterdam watching him open up for Daft Punk at Heineken Music Hall with SebastiAn. Fans of The View From Nowhere might also recall we did an interview with the mysterious man himself in 2010.

​This past month saw the release of Kavinky’s long awaited first LP, “Outrun,” an album that demonstrates the depth of Kavinsky as an artist across multiple genres, moods and soundscapes. To celebrate the release of Outrun in the US, Kavinsky’s Los Angeles fans were treated to a truly special evening in his only west coast performance during his current tour.

KXSC Interview - Joachim Garraud

KXSC Interview – Joachim Garraud

 

A pioneer by any measure, Joachim Garraud created his own recording studio in the middle of Paris, which allowed him to remix, compose and produce a myriad of artists over the years such as David Guetta, Jean-Michel Jarre, Kylie Minogue Paul Johnson, David Bowie, Cassius, Ceronne, Moby, Robbie Rivera and many more. Today, Joachim keeps busy with a new studio in Los Angeles, a weekly radio show “ZeMIXX”, (available free on iTunes) with over 350 episodes and counting, a touring live show and slew of artist collaborations. KXSC’s own DJ Ahmar had a chance to chat with Joachim before the debut of his new 3D live show this Saturday at Exchange LA, recent move to the city of angels and the launch of the new Space Invader Label.

You began playing piano at an early age. What made you gravitate towards electronic music? What were some of your early influences?

Well, that’s an easy explanation. When you’re a teenager, it’s not very cool to play classical music like Bach, so you gravitate to other styles of music. Some of my early inspirations in electronic music would have to be Jean Michel Jarre or Kraftwerk.

Speaking of Jean Michel Jarre (a legend in his own right), you performed alongside him on December 31, 1999, live from the Cairo Pyramids. An event that drew over 2 billion television viewers! What can you tell us about that?

That was an incredible experience. First of all, both me and Jean Michel Jarre had an idea to do a an event on New Year’s Eve 2000, so we were both already interested in doing a live show. We worked on that show for almost 19 months, then a 2 week rehearsal in Egypt which involved hundreds of musicians including a full symphony to put on an incredible 5 hour show in front of the pyramids. It was amazing because first I was able to put on grand show in front of so many people in Egypt, and secondly the fact that over 2 billion people from around the world watched that show was incredible. That’s almost a third of the planet!

You recently moved to Los Angeles, what do you think of it so far? I know you are already a fan of LA label Dim Mak records.

Moving to Los Angeles is a dream for me now that I’m a father. Everything is in close proximity in Los Angeles. I can go to the beach or snow in the daytime, have dinner with my family, work in the studio in the evening, fly to Las Vegas to do a show all in the same weekend! I will also be producing with more American artists this year.

You’re known for your energetic live shows. I’m excited to see you’re debut 3D live show this Saturday at Exchange LA. What can you share with us about it? 

With all my live shows, I want to have direct contact with the audience. Several years ago, I met the pioneer of the DVJ and eventually, I added visuals to my show using Serato which allows you as the DJ to control the lighting and effects live on stage.

For the 3D show, I’ve been working on this more than 8 months. I wanted the audience to feel like they are inside of another world, to give them the ability to travel without moving. With the 3D Space invader masks, they will experience the show on a new level. It’s kind of like Avatar, only better.

You’re launching your brand new label, Space Invader Music. This isn’t your first time either, as you founded "F*** Me I'm Famous records" with David Guetta. What was your reason to found a new label?

Having your own label is the best way to bring brand new talent to the stage and have their music heard. I want younger generations to have more opportunities to get their music released. So if you are an aspiring musician or producer, we would like to hear your music. If you would like to send a promo, please message us with your best song at: contact@spaceinvadermusic.com

 

Since you are Mr. Space Invader himself, what is your favorite alien movie?

 The original Alien from 1979 with Sigourney Weaver, of course!

 

Are there any artists or albums you’re excited to hear this year?

It’s hard to name an album because it’s more and more rare for artists to put out albums nowadays. It used to be that fans would have to wait to wait 2 years or more before an artist would put out an album of music, but now it’s more often the case that an artist will put out EPs with , so you don’t have to wait as long for the music to get released.

One artist who been working on new music is Steve Aoki, and I’m really excited to see what he will release in 2013.

What can your fans expect in 2013?

I’ll be producing with many more US artists, more dates with the 3D live show and of course, the launch of my label Space Invader Music!

We look forward to it, thank you!

KXSC Interview - Congorock

KXSC Interview - Congorock

 

From underground phenomenon to emerging star of the world's biggest dance floors: the hottest fresh face of international dance music hails from Italy: Congorock. In only two years, with the single Babylon, the remix of Somebody to Love (Boy George/Mark Ronson), and One (Swedish House Mafia), Rocco Rampino has earned the respect of the most famous names in the game. KXSC’s own DJ Ahmar had a chance to chat with Rocco on the first leg of his 2012 Summer Tour through North American.

 

How did you begin as a musician? Was this from an early age?

I started playing piano when I was 6. I grew up in a music environment because my dad was a music enthusiast who had all these keyboards and it was very natural for me to start playing piano. Then I followed some piano lessons and eventually started playing guitar in bands learning by myself. I wanted to play loud music because piano wasn’t loud enough for me. After bands, I decided to go on a solo project and try something by myself.

 

I understand punk music was one of your favorite genres. How did you have access to the music you were getting?

When I started listening to punk rock, there were no record stores in my village in Italy where you could get punk rock, so I bought many records from mail-order or through underground distributors. Back in that day, the internet wasn’t popular yet so I was placing my orders by phone or by mail.

 

I understand that your inspiration to begin producing music dance music came after first listening to the album “Rooty” by the Basement Jaxx

I think Basement Jaxx “Rooty” is the greatest dance album of all time. You know I love other artists like Daft Punk too, but looking at the whole album Rooty sounds like one great single after another. Also, I like the artwork and that album came out at the right time for me and reminds me of good memories.

 

What would you say was the turning point as a producer?

The Basement Jaxx album came out in 2001, but I also credit meeting Bob Rifo of the Bloody Beetroots many years later who showed me how to begin making dance music. Around 2007, a few months after I had met Bob who was teaching me how to produce dance music. I decided to make a song on my own and post it on a few music blogs like Discobelle. I got a message 2 days later from A-Trak who heard my song on Discobelle, wanting to sign me to Fool’s Gold Records.

 

You really seemed to reach a wide audience with your 2010 release “Babylon.” Was there a story behind making that song?

That track came out in a moment where I really was not inspired. For some reason at the time, it was the most experimental thing I had ever done. The day I wrote the song (a year before the actual release), the track was really experimental to me. I was trying to make tribal music sound aggressive. Maybe now it doesn’t seem so experimental because that sound became kind of popular, but at the time it sounded weird.

 

Not long ago you scored the Liu Kang theme for the recent Mortal Kombat game. What would you say are your favorite games to play?
Mass Effect is my favorite, but I also like The Elder Scrolls Skyrim and LA Noire

 

Any artists you’d like to collaborate with?

I’d really like to collaborate with Robyn. I’d also like to collaborate with Noah Lennox AKA Panda Bear from Animal Collective but I read somewhere he was working with Daft Punk so he’s probably taken :)

 

Would you ever be interested in collaborating with D.I.M. of Boys Noize records? It feels as if your sounds might work well together.

Yes, I really like the idea of working together with D.I.M., I think it would be interesting

 

Any new or upcoming artists you want to support?

I really believe NT89 is gonna be a DJ everybody is talking about. He’s young, has a great vision about his music and I think he’s gonna make great work in the next years.

 

With your latest release “Ivory” on Ultra Records, what can you tell us about the direction of your sound?

That’s another track I made without caring about any standard of club music. With Ivory, I did a track exactly the way I wanted and eventually it sounded very tribal, very percussive with a strong atmosphere and I really love the synth section. That seems to be my way, to make my songs sound a little bit exotic, but very loud and aggressive.

 

You’re starting on your North America tour this week with one of your first shows this Friday at the legendary Avalon in Hollywood for Control Fridays.

Yes, this is the first time I’ve done so many cities like this. This tour is exciting because I’m playing in so many cities I’ve never played before like Orlando, Mexico City and Victoria, BC.

 

Any cities you would love to play?

I hope to one day play in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I heard the shows there are real crazy. Hopefully I’ll get to play there, or maybe I’ll just make it there as a tourist.

 

What new projects can your fans expect coming out soon?

I’m doing a remix with Zedd, working on collaboration and finishing my album which should be coming out next fall.

 

We look forward to it, thank you!

NewVillager presents LA with a Cultural Metamorphosis

Photo Credit: Tina Avanessian

Over the past 6 days, Los Angeles has been home to the life of a rather unique installation and (dare we say) culture fusing arts, mythology and music. It could only mean New York pop project NewVillager was in town, who managed to comandeer Human Resources gallery for its high concept art show. The group (along with several contributors) designed, curated (and even slept in) a dreamlike village which hosted performances from various visual artists and musicians each night. Within its lifespan, the gallery was transformed into an eclectic installation and performance space which included performances by the likes of Julia Holter, Emily Lacy, Matt from Princeton and Noah & David from Bodies of Water. The space included 10 different rooms, each in celebration of the ten- song mythology that underlies their upcoming self-titled album coming out on IAMSOUND records, August 16th.

According to group member Ben Bromley, “Every culture in its essence is temporary […] empires last over the courses of thousands of years. For us, we are choosing to put together a culture that lasts ten days.” Bromley greeted an excited crowd on the final night culminating in the group’s performance, “welcome to the cocoon,” backed by bandmate Ross Simonini, whose modulated voice reminds one of that one song from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (Yello “Oh Yeah”). By the end of the performance, walls separating each of the 10 unique environments to make way for a flashmob of dance and pop music celebration.

 Most civilizations crumble over the course of centuries and generations without notice. At least this one ceremoniously went out with a bang.

KSCR - Live from Comic Con 2010

One week of the year, San Diego is host to one of the largest gatherings of its kind, Comic-Con International. Comic-Con is host to a myriad of exhibitors and professionals attracting enthusiasts of comic books, film, television, video games, anime and science fiction.

It’s no surprise Disney once again earned the spotlight this year, kicking things off with a press conference for the much anticipated film Tron: Legacy. Scored by mysterious electronic duo, Daft Punk, it will undoubtedly be the highlight of the coming holiday season.

Outside the conference, Tron fans scoured all over downtown San Diego as part of a Tron Legacy scavenger hunt via Twitter. Participants were provided with instructions and coordinates for each "mission," culminating in a rendezvous at the “End of Line Club” at Flynn’s Arcade.

Named after the arcade from the original film, Flynn’s is a unique installation created exclusively for Comic-Con weekend for fans and other members of the Tron world to converge. Inside, one can find a fully functioning video arcade with classics like Galaga and Asteroid, memorabilia from the original film and an incredible “space-station” environment populated with citizens from the Tron world.

KSCR’s own DJ Ahmar aka VFN had a chance to visit Comic-Con 2010 and enter the world of Tron at Flynn’s arcade. (Fun fact for Daft fans: Inside, we spotted Mr. Michel Gondry, director of the memorable video for “Around the World”)

Electro? LA Halloween Options 2008

So Halloween is this Friday. Still don't have plans? Like electronic music? We can help.  The good thing is that this Halloween there are plenty of choices of events to go to. You have an opportunity to go to not one, not two, but three places in the same night.  First off, the most recently announced event is an Ed Banger Halloween Party. 

Sponsored by Nike, the french Ed Bangers DJs will be hosting a Halloween Kick-Off party at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood. This is the same theater that Soulwax will be screening their Part of the Weekend Never Dies on the 28th. The new Busy P AirForces will be unveiled at the event, and you will have an opportunity to meet the members of the Ed Rec Crue, while still outfitted in your Daft Punk knock-off Halloween costume. There's no RSVP, so just show up. The event starts at 5PM at the Montalban.

------------------------------------------------------------------

What to do next? Well, of course there's Hard Haunted Mansion, but if you don't have tickets to it, or if you intend on showing up late, you could always check out an event sponsored by LA Metromix.

The people who brought you the weekly DanceRight event at La Cita bring you Drop-Dead Gorgeous Halloween at the Natural History Museum directly South of USC. Here you can catch DJ Sets from Treasure FingersClassixx, and my pick Holy Ghost. The best part of this event is that it is absolutely free for admission. Don't want to fork out $60 for a Hard Ticket? This is your best bet. There is a catch, though, to admission: you simply need to RSVP. Easy, right? Open up your favorite email program or webmail site and send your confirmation over to metromix@danceright.com. If you're going to this event and staying there, enjoy yourself. But if not, you always have the option of walking over to Hard Fest going on within walking distance. A safe bet would be to pay couple bucks and parking over at the University of Southern California Parking Structure X on Figueroa. This parking structure is located right in between, and is walking distance, both the Metromix and Hard events. That being said, you can head north on Figueroa and find yourself at one of the most epic electronic events that Los Angeles has ever hosted. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Meet Hard Haunted Mansion

With a line-up featuring the biggest names in electronic music, I have no doubt that this event will be the highlight of the night. You will have an opportunity to catch the likes of JusticeSoulwaxSMDBoys Noize, Crystal Castles, Crookers, and a few others...... all in the same night! If you haven't bought your tickets for this yet, you should because they may sell out and/or reach capacity early. So get your costume, get your ass to the Shrine on Halloween night, and prepare for one of the biggest nights of electronic music ever to take place in the western hemisphere.  ------------------------------------------------------------------ But wait.... there's more. Still not satisfied? Halloween is not just a night... it's the whole weekend.
By the time you wake up the following morning hungover from Hard Fest, you have just enough time to get yourself and a few close companions in a car, and head east to the northbound Interstate 15. Follow the road for a couple hundred miles, and you will end up in Las Vegas where the party never ends. The Fabulous Festival is the biggest electronic show in Las Vegas history, where you can catch sets from  MSTRKRFTCrystal Castles (again), DEADMAU5, HeartsRevolution, and [once again] the Ed Banger Crew featuring Busy P, DJ Mehdi, SebastiAn, SoMe and Mr Flash. Since Las Vegas is lenient with ordinances, curfews and whatnot, expect this event to go on until the wee hours. And if these don't satisfy you... I don't know what else to say.

Tasty Apples

So about a month ago, a friend of mine who works at the Beverly Center Apple Store helped a random guy buy a computer. Little did he know, this would result in a partially-complementary dining experience for two at one of Hollywood's tastiest restaurants. As it turned out, the "random guy" in need of a new Mac was in fact a chef at Ketchup, a trendy little Hollywood restaurant allegedly owned by Ashton Klutcher. Considering its trendy, upscale image, the food the restaurant serves might come as a bit of a surprise. You'll be less likely to find "exotic" foods here than American staples such as hamburgers, fries, hotdogs and steak, despite the fancy, modern decor. Because we had been invited for a meal, we were treated to extra special service (at a place that ordinarily has good service anyway). Samples of various appetizers were brought out for us to try, for free, and they were all incredibly delicious. First up was the "3 Some" - THREE different kinds of fries and FIVE different varieties of... you guessed it... Ketchup. Each of them was distinct, and yet delicious in its own way. I made a point to try each different fry with each variety of Ketchup. I would share my favorite combinations, but I think it would take away from the experience of trying them all yourself should you decide to eat there. Next up came mini hotdogs and mini cheeseburgers. These were anything but the traditional greasy fast food burger. Instead, they were "childhood favorites, recreated with an upscale, gourmet twist." They were all very good, and somehow also quite filling for their size. Around the same time, a cart came by offering free drink samples (in exchange for tips). It seems the restaurant had decided that by offering free samples of its fabulous beverages, it could encourage more people to purchase drinks. I wish I'd written this review a bit earlier, as I can't remember the exact names of the drinks I tried. I know I tried one with tequila in it, and my friend tried some sort of grape concoction (the only two they offered free samples of), and then we swapped to try the other. I ended up ordering a variation on a Cosmopolitan, which no doubt had a clever name I don't remember. For a main entree, I highly recommend the "shake-n-bake" chicken with sauteed vegetables. It was excellent - especially the sauce, and so good in fact, that I couldn't stop eating it until it was all gone. By the time I finished it, I was so full (between the appetizers and the main course) that I could hardly stand up to leave. My friend felt the same after trying the "Deliverance," a Jack Daniel's-glazed, double cut pork chop with cheddar grits, apple sauce, and salad. All and all, Ketchup is an excellent restaurant, although ordinarily it would be a bit pricey... were it not for our Apple store luck. I would definitely go back again sometime, and I highly recommend dining there if you get the chance.
