Looking to grab yourself a decent hardware / software combo? There are a lot of choices out there, but here is great video to help you understand the differences between the two top dogs at the moment.
HaD the honor to hAve a brieF chat wiTh these guys a while back. Some suPerb mUsic making goiNg on here…(sicK!) If your into your French house disco cuts, then your going to love these. Reminds me of why i got into music in the first place – to make people dance.
Watch this song and feel awesome. Found this through researching Guy Sigsworth. Not usually my preferred style: pop, however this production, and video go beyond. If you do not feel upbeat and or happier after watching this then i would suggest seeing a specialist
Recently I have been playing with the idea of visuals reacting and or playing along to music. There are many ways to do this, however I went with manipulating 3D objects in space. Hope you like, more to come.
‘Heaven’ was used in the acclaimed skate film Fully Flared directed by Spike Jonze and Ty Evans. The collaboration inspired the directors to take footage and re-edit a sequence of shots that shows the Lakai skateboarding team demonstrating their considerable skills as they navigate through and around various exploding obstacles. With ‘Heaven’ as the musical backdrop, the resulting marriage of sound to picture is quite extraordinary.
I have just discovered a superb performance from Yppah featuring Anomie Belle. I haven’t heard much from this artist in the past couple of years, but i guess that is due to the fact that he is now signed with Ninja Tunes Records, and is writing music with such talented artist.
Yppah, featuring Anomie Belle, performs live in the KEXP studio. Recorded March 21, 2012.

Here is a little info on Yppah if you didn’t already know who he is:
Yppah (pronounced ‘Yippah’), sometimes know as Joe Corrales, Jr., released his debut album You Are Beautiful At All Times in November of 2006 on Ninja Tune. This stunning debut is a lush mix of beautiful and often times melancholic electronica, breakbeat drum samples with shoegazer melodies set in an atmospheric sound landscape.
Joe spent his early teen years playing guitar and bass in rock bands, then later as a scratch DJ who mixed hip hop and house in clubs sets. He’s also a founding member of the turntablist group The Truth.
Drawing on a cultural heritage that took in My Bloody Valentine alongside hip hop and heavily influenced by various forms of electronic music, psychedelic soul and rock, his music often mixes guitars shoved through massive reverbs/delays, keyboards/synthesizers, live drums, and other techniques.
Since the release of You Are Beautiful At All Times, Yppah has formed a live band consisting of himself, Caliban Goodbrain (Thomas Sutherland), Nicholas Noeding, Jr. and rotating band members. Live performances of the album have included shows at SXSW 2007 and the enormously popular Starbucks Mixed Media Series at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Yppah again made an appearance at SXSW 2008, this time as a DJ. He has traveled with the likes of DJ Food, DK, Bonobo and Zero dB taking part in Solid Steel Nippon 2, a hugely popular music event in Japan, and has also created remixes for DJ Kentaro and Zero dB.
Recently, Yppah’s music has been embraced by the entertainment industry. His songs have been featured in television episodes of CSI and House, the movie 21, and in the videogame trailer for Atari’s Alone in the Dark.
Yppah’s sophomore album, They Know What Ghost Know, was released in May of 2009. Employing the same atmospheric mix as his debut album, They Know What Ghost Know consists of a more rock based sound. He is also a third of the electronic/rock group Day of the Woman with Pollination/Nick Noeding, Jr. (Albuquerque, NM) and Stenographer/Dave Salinas (Houston, TX).
With their own productions, the Bachelors continue to defy those that try to categorize them into a genre. From the deep liquid drum n bass inspired by their hometown of London and the likes of High Contrast and LTJ Bukem to the minimal inspired Autonomic sounds of dBridge and sun-drenched 4/4 grooves inspired by fellow SF locals Dirtybird … the Bachelors have retained their quality and a large and loyal following throughout, garnering plays from Annie Mac, Basement Jaxx, LTJ Bukem, High Contrast, Loxy, Doc Scott, DJ Hype, Reid Speed, Alix Perez, Grooverider and DJ Marky…
Leading a wave of new skool D+B talent from Europe with his blend of uplifting, melancholic melodies and heavy dancefloor bass + beats, Netsky’s popularity as both a DJ and producer is second to none.He first came to Hospital’s attention with “Smile” and “Tomorrow’s Another Day” was quickly snapped up, signing exclusively to Hospital in late 2009. Netsky’s first release on Hospital was the iconic “Memory Lane” (as featured on “Sick Music 2″ in 2010) and this was swiftly followed up by his chart topping debut album – “Netsky”– in May of the same year. Following virtually unanimous praise and hype from all corners of the globe, it plunged Netsky firmly into the limelight, where he has remained ever since, delivering a potent mix of dancefloor anthems, vocal led classics and that clean cut new jungle sound which has become his trademark….
