The Dog & Pony Show team up with Turbotax to usher in Julio Bashmore’s long anticipated return onto American soil this Thursday at Le Poisson Rouge. After a meteoric rise last year, Bashmore continues to impress both bass & house heads alike with the massive summer anthem Au Seve, production on Jessie Ware’s Devotion and the creation of his own label, Boardwalk Records. His latest offering Husk provides a stripped down groover with a workout video to boot. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook feeds for a chance to win a pair of tickets.

M83′s new album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is due out mid-October. The band will be gracing NYC with their presence shortly thereafter on November 22 at Webster Hall. (Tickets are already sold out! We suggest consulting Craigslist.) Danish mastermind, Trentemoller, released his own take on the electro-pop track. What was once a minor four chord ear-worm has morphed into an eerie story infused with chromatic and pitch-bending dissonances. The delicacy of the haunting intro makes you want to loop the first 18 seconds. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.

Henry Saiz follows the recent release of his Balance 019 mix compilation by touring North America, including stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and select dates in Mexico. He’ll be coming through Bar 13 this Wednesday, August 24, so be sure to stop by and check him out.
Henry is the quintessential audiophile DJ/producer. A lover of the analogue sound, he works in both the hardware and software worlds to create textures and soundscapes rarely heard in dance music today. His recent Balance 019 mix is a perfect example: using four track recorders, vinyl, reprocessing and reediting, many tracks were individually honed and refined before combining for the final product.
His DJ sets carry a similar renown to his productions, and his Balance mix. Attuned, nuanced, technical, and subtle, Henry takes great pride in creating an experience of varied genres, traveling through all variations of tech and deep house, tribal music and acoustics, as well as brief flirtations with techno.

It’s already been well-documented that Kingdom is one of the most interesting producers in the game right now. Things were going well with gigs, releases and such. Suddenly, within months he leaves NYC subtly, moves to (mostly) sunny Los Angeles and is enjoying life quite nicely there. But before we can fully accept the fact that Kingdom is in L.A. full-time, he does something else to completely shift our focus. Enter FADE TO MIND, Kingdom’s new label (as well as being hailed as the “American Night Slugs”). Yes, visually it does seem reminiscent of previous Night Slugs releases, but Kingdom, along with Prince William (co-founder of the label) are determined to make it a monster of its own.
The first release is from L.A.-based duo Nguzunguzu, who have been all over the place sonically and are a pleasure to listen to, no matter where or when they DJ. The release, TIMESUP, features three original tracks, as well as remixes from Total Freedom and Kingdom himself. Get familiar in a hurry, FADE TO MIND is surely here to stay.
Click through for Ezra’s Fade To Mind mix for oki-ni which includes a brand new Kingdom original Take Me, a Mariah Carey + Nicki Minaj collab remix plus Nguzunguzu’s Timesup.
