Hailing from suburban France, Mustard Pimp throws conventional out the window with a unique blend of fidget house/electro pop of Crookers with the punch u in the face energy of Don Rimini. I guess making remixes and singles weren't enough as these guys just released a 12 hour, yes as in half a day of music, mixtape appropriately named "Hercules." Having recently been signed to LA's Dim Mak Records expect them to be fastracked similar to the way the Blood Beetroots were were year, so get their music while its free. These guys Myspace is the best I've seen so in addition to all the SoundCloud free 320kb downloads below, u can find their now infamous "Hercules" mixtape and show info there. So far Ive listened to hours 1 and 3 and they are incredible.
Instead of uploading all the songs I've brought the Soundcloud here. Listen to the songs and then click download and the transfer should begin immediately

For the second installment of Transcendental Tracks, I'd like to showcase an amazing band from back east called Animal Collective. I first heard this band in high school, and was pleasantly surprised this past year to find that a once-obscure band I liked (that combined acoustic guitars AND dr. samples AND sang about "kitties") was now touring extensively and playing at giant festivals worldwide. The Collective is made up of four members, each accomplished in multiple instruments, that switch in and out of the lineup at whim, making tours, TV appearances, and studio recordings unique, dynamic experiences. Their sound is, at times, experimental and incomprehensibly weird, but is always interesting and impressive. The band's latest album, Merriweather Post Pavillion, is chalk-full of awesome electronica-influenced glitch beats, samples, and synth lines. Their work is definitely worth the itunes price-tag.
Eight years ago when Pioneer released the CDJ-1000, they revolutionized the DJ industry. Today, they are doing it again with the release of the new CDJ-2000. This new deck will soon be the worldwide club standard. Most importantly, instead of bringing an expensive laptop to each show, the CDJ-2000 allows DJs to simply bring a flash drive or SD card loaded with their entire music library. Pioneer has struck gold here. At the high price point of $2,150, expect to see these turntables slowly make it into clubs over the next several months.
Rather than bore you with all the technical details, I'll highlight the most notable features:
- Massive 6.1" LCD screen
- Touchscreen "needle pad"
- Ability to play songs from flash drives, SD cards
- Native Serato, Traktor, Ableton Live support
- Ability to network up to four players
- Support for high-resolution audio

Whether they are still are still feeling the hangover from HARD Summer or they are upset over how HARD pulled a fast one by making people pay $40 extra to see the same headliners (over two days), many aren't happy and this events success is crucial for the company. Solution: Add Soulwax and make sure there are enough Secuirty guards....
(( And were back. Sorry I've been taking care of some real life shit and havent been able to keep the site update but rest assured a lot in coming. With Nocturnal, HARD Haunted Mansion, Monster Massive, and various other massives and club events, content is bulging from our skulls so stay tuned. ))
Anyone who's self title is One Many Party must be pretty legit right? Steve Slingeneyer might better be known as the incredibly talented drummer of Soulwax but he can also throw down a pretty dope mixtape. Joining him downtown in LA this week will be French legend Alan Braxe, who together with names like Thomas Bangalter and Falcon, helped launch what we now know as French house. Below are OMP's latest mixtape and some of Braxe's recent stuff.
