REPLY TO ALL SHOUT OUT BLOG MAFIA RIDE OR DIE
Anyway, none of this could have been possible without our special friend, the young Jordan Elliot of The Kids Are RADIOACTIVE [TKAR]. He’s part of the always lovely Binary crew in Los Angeles and one thing is for sure when it comes to Binary- nicest bunch of kids around!
TKAR has a ways to go as far as developing his own niche sound, but what we’ve all heard so far, is very promising. He tiptoes between the lines of electro/techno/dreamwave and we’re dying to find out what comes of all this exploration! The fact that he’s so young and putting out stuff that sounds like this, only leaves the future to be excited about. So while we wait for massive things to happen, sit back and enjoy what he’s doing right now.
First up is the feature track that started the reply to all magic… TKAR’s remix of Ra Ra Riot’s – Can You Tell. Cannot get enough cathedral organ in my life!!
Here’s something I’m really excited about. An original production from TKAR with vocals lent by another LA local, LexiconDon. Be stoked for this one, it’s out on Binary’s compilation album “LA Lights” out October 13!!
The percussion and hand claps…. #ilovehandclaps
Just because I’m in the best mood possible today, this is my latest favorite from Team Australia. It’s the Strip Steve remix of GLOVES – PYX. SO good. Paradise. You may recognize it if you tuned into #radiotuftsmania (scroll thru if you want to get the lowdown on what happened last night). It was the opening track! that modulated key synth solo…and I seem to love anything with acoustic piano?….. love.
Hi I’m Chris_N and I’m living the good life. Nothing makes me happier than a nice and healthy, good-vibe REPLY TO ALL mailing list with some quality blog folk. How’s the weather babies?? xoxo
more hype and the story on reply to all 2009: http://www.sheenabeaston.com/2009/08/ra-ra-riot-can-you-tell-kids-are.html

Some smarty pants from a website which will remain nameless thought he/she would be cool and decided to BCC everyone instead of CC.
BOOO!!! you can’t kill it!
Well, for all those of you who are about to embark on a week of finals that may or may not kill you, here are some compressed audio files that will keep you alive.
After not hearing from Neon Coyote for a while, MOCIAS John hits me back with an amazing update. They’ve added a new player to the pack, Chico Love, and he’s fitting in quite nicely. He’s also a fan of stuffing an insane amount of tracks into a ~20 minute timeframe, so be ready for some nice A.D.D. induced mixing. I’m so down. Track list to die for. makin me bounce as we speaaaaak.

Le Castle Vania is no stranger in the blog scene. I think he has an LA and ATL identity crisis. Maybe the letters are confusing to him. Maybe he’s epileptic AND albino??? Anyway, his albino ass be mixing shit straight from the vampire demon lairs themselves. VERY ENJOYABLE, YES VERY.
Here he is remixing GRUM’s ‘Go Back’. It doesn’t really need any remixing, but the LCV remix makes it explode in the chorus. really. explosion. like huge. in a metal kind of way.
Keep on rocking out and keep on replying to all, my friends.
bb update: just got out of a final to find another 20 messages on my bb. The mailing list is going strong!
The most astounding/interesting/perplexing thing happened this morning. Things went as usual. I woke up, brushed my teeth, fried an egg, burned the toast, then sat down for some quality 1 on 1 with apple mail. (yep, no shower, this is what future-scientists do)
Everything was going well and as usual: club promo, invites, mp3s, blah blah, label promoters being dicks, you know –the usual. ANYWAY…. I come to an email from Peter from the Outlaws. It’s got a mixtape, alright, sweet so I start downloading it. While that is going, I go to my next message.
I do a double take. someone pressed…..
REPLY TO ALL
and then… I saw it again… then again. The same title, but with more Re:’s attached and from different senders! By this point I could feel the excitement mounting in my happy little fingers. It had suddenly warped to 1982 and everyone reverted to using one of the earliest renditions of social networking known as ‘mailing lists’.
I think I just heard a little rip in the time/space continuum due to this.
The shirts are coming.
long live the meme
I love you all.
Oh, I’m gonna throw down a list of tracks right here that came to the inbox the that a stood out. You know I’m not usually a fan of ‘mass track posts’, actually I don’t like that at all. But in the interest of time I’m gonna do it. Final examinations again. You know how that goes. All of these tracks are out of control, you must listen.
RIGHT CLICK THESE, SAVE AS.
