When I first saw Bishiclet remixed Janet Jackson, I was like naaahh, he ain’t gonna top his Miguel remix or the other Janet remixes I collected. He did both. Well, this might not have the longevity of his Miguel remix, but we’ll see about that.
His So Excited remix was so unexpected. It’s so hard for any producer to be consistently good, let alone come up with something borderline trendsetting. What he did to Janet’s voice, pitchin em on high like that, is best described as sounding like Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord, except not having to deal with her rap Ninja.
The first night I had with this, I played it over & over at least a dozen times.
I was talking to my coworkers about the music in my Late Night Jazz list. While it’s definitely not the music of the early turn of last century, it still gives me that feeling of jazz for the evening, unconventional as it may be. It’s all covered in electronic sounds and that’s where our opinions stray.
Same goes with our funk-infused playlist, The Funk Shall Be Within You. It may go off into electro at times, but the feeling of funk is strong throughout and I don’t think any word could describe it better, especially electronic. Other than nufunk or any other made up offshoot, but that’s a whole other debate.
I love high hats especially with something sexy wrapped around em. I first found this off beat, soulful shit in our vapor lists, but unlike that this is much more hip hop based and much sexier.
We get into some future glam towards the middle and end it a little lighter with my favorite hip hop out right now. So stick til the end.
First half is on the lighter side of deep house. Most the music deals in Love and the shit parts of it. Reminds me a lot of our Horizontal Disco playlist, but a little deeper with the house.
The other half is on a much heavier side of bass that’s a bit better for dancing. Late night raging that is. Both are good for dancing, depending on your mood.
Let me know how you’d order these differently if you had the chance.
A great live show needs two things. The right friends and and the right music. And Friday at Folsom might just top any other show I’ve ever been to. Not only is Snakehips headlining, but FKJ is playing his debut live set!
I’ve only ever written about a show once before solely to get more people to go. This is my second attempt. And I’m MUCH more excited about this one.
Only a few people I go to the club with regularly would know how much I love to dance. But only if the right friends and music are there and the two usually don’t come together often.
Many great producers are not as great live. It’s a whole different game. Something I know FKJ excels at and I’m pretty damn confident Snakehips will too. Both are making the best dance music today, and I don’t say that lightly.
Just see for yourself.
– Make sure to dance

The original theme was fuck music that sounded like Flume, specifically his bombastic use of synth. That glamorous sound.
Future is what it’s being referred as right now, but I don’t like that title much. Even though I’ve used it before, it’s gonna sound stupid once it’s no longer the hype in electronic.
So in tribute, I thought I’d make something fun out of it. The title that is, with some word play.
Our electro funk from last year grew so much we decided to break it up & section it into a few playlists. First up comes from the groovier side.
I wanted to call this Groovewit hits, but Lauren talked me out of it. Generally speaking it lies in the mid-range of electro music with heavy synth influence and a whole lotta funky bass.
Let us know how well the songs flowed together for you.
It’s important to us.
With our first VAPOR playlist, we wanted to figure out what this sound is called. We made up a few names of our own, but thought vapor fit best.
Turns out it’s called Kawaii, and Jersey Club. Kawaii actually means cute in Japanese, which makes most sense given its bubbly nature with anime and video game samples sprinkled in. Jersey Club seems to be more house-based, but still as bubbly.
We decided to still keep it called Vapor ’cause this is too funky to be that cutesy.
Can’t stand such hard styles as I use to, neither can most my age, but I hear something come up every once in a while.
Clay’s UO I’m pretty sure at this point samples Die Antwoord, but I still can’t match the lyrics to a song. It sure puts their sound into a whole new style. One I like a lot more.
