Our third enhanced podcast is a nod to the new year, new artists, and innovations. This episode contains a careful blend of melancholy, delicate glitch, and danceable beats — curated by yours truly.
We also have the pleasure of welcoming two new artists to our label: Jimmy Batista, a New Yorker producing under the guise iameb 57, and Michael Louzao & Tim Williams, the PDX locals behind Hello Square. We’ve got two iameb tracks on the podcast, one being an original track from a forthcoming EP release, and the other a dope remix of Ke$ha’s Tik Tok. Hello Square makes a big debut with their electro-infused pop song, Writing on the Wall. And White Car, nearing completion of his soon-to-be released album Closing the Doors of Perception, shares a fresh track with us called Rico.
To top things off, we’ve got another awesome unreleased track by Reii, a remix of Lloyd’s Get It Shawty by Masmöd (as well as his track Asphalt from Axiom), a newly-surfaced remix of the Slants’ Kokoro by Pinscape, and finally, a remix of Graintable’s Lost Frost by Gouseion from the Run Riot crew. This third installment of Listening Pleasures is sure to get your ass in gear, so be sure to subscribe to our podcast if you haven’t already. We’ll be churning out more of these each month along with some fresh new releases along the way.

Came across this pretty helpful VJ site called VJ Kung Fu / http://vjkungfu.tv. From the looks of it, it’s more like a community site, where users upload videos that touch on DIY methods for VJs, and what helps to produce the best live shows. This particular episode touches on the structure of a VJ performance. Thought it was pretty helpful for any other VJs out there who’re either just getting their feet wet, or are looking to expand their live shows with something a little more dynamic…
Looks like the guy in the tutorial uses a monome 128 to split up the structure of his visuals. Kind of a dope way of “structuring” video, while still making it more of a hands on experience.

Here is a video of Masmöd performing “Asphalt” from the Nueva Forma Social Club vol.1 at the Someday Lounge. The sound that night, as always with the Someday Lounge, was terrific. Props to Aleatoric for organizing the night as well as to Cloudburst, Demi & Cutter and Mike Jedlicka for bringing out the fine tunes that night. :)

Hobnox™ is probably one of the most versatile, and innovative online collective of individuals coming out of Germany. They offer such a wide variety of online tools to use, it’s insane; really, they’ve created their own world. Although they’re still in beta, they’ve made leaps and bounds over other social networking sites & tools. Just to name a few, they offer an online tool, titled “Livetool”, and with it, you can create and broadcast your own webshow; it’s pretty impressive.

The geniuses behind Auditorium at Cipher Prime have outdone themselves. Auditorium is a great, free online puzzle game that successfully melds audio with visual. Basically, light streams shoot across the playing space. The goal is to direct these lights to their perspective receiving boxes and to fill them up completely. The game gets more interesting when you factor in different “controls” to redirect the light source, sometimes having to pass through multiple color-wheel-esque changes.
