Cubic Zirconia “Take Me High (Bart B More Remix)” Video + NYC Show 2/4

Posted on Jan 26th, 2012 by Mr Goldbar

The enormous Bart B More remix of Cubic Zirconia’s “Take Me High” has quickly become a DJ favorite (peep Diplo opening Holy Ship! with it and dropping on his radio show), and the band loves it too. So much, in fact, that they decided to film a video for the remix, with frontwoman Tiombe Lockhart once again pulling double duty on both sides of the camera to direct.

Watch it up top, grab the remix on iTunes or Beatport, and check more CZ vids (and Tiombe’s directorial tips) here.

Cubic Zirconia will be playing their first hometown show of the new year (and their first since opening SBTRKT’s sold-out Music Hall Of Williamsburg gig) on Saturday, February 4th at Drom. They’ll be shooting another vid there as well, so look sharp! We’ll see you there. Read More

Jokers Of The Scene “J0T5 RMXD” EP Out Now

Posted on Jan 24th, 2012 by Mr Goldbar

The Jokers Of The Scene one-two punch continues with the release of J0T5 RMXD. It’s a companion piece to last week’s J0T5 EP, and features the sterling remix work of some of electronic music’s finest: Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), Shadow Dancer (BNR), Hrdvsion (Wagon Repair), Savile & Olin, Cosmic Kids (Throne Of Blood), Gingy & Bordello (Turbo) and Babe Rainbow (Warp).

From Hrdvsion’s slow, funky take on “In Order To Trance” to Daniel Avery dropping breakbeat science on “Black Mountie” (already a favorite of Andrew Weatherall and more), this remix EP offers the Jokers’ peers and contemporaries a chance to launch dance satellites of their own into the duo’s enjoyably unique orbit. Check it out on iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere fine mp3s are sold. Read More
