DEAD AIR ELECTRO 028 (with MIKEY PALERMO) ((FEBRUARY 2015))

I’m totally excited that the first guest host of 2015 is MIKEY PALERMO. He’s one of the most promising young producers in the Toronto underground, and the man responsible for one of my favourite remixes of the past year. He’s also the proud father of an 8 week old puppy, named Sandwich, whom I’m…

MIXTAPE REVIEW: DJ TAMEIL – THROWBACK CLUB MUSIC

So I’m digging through a friends CLUB MUSIC vinyl collection, pricing it out to sell it for him, and I’m being reminded of how much I love all these tunes. What suddenly shows up in my feed? A MIXTAPE of CLASSICS from a true pioneer of the scene. I don’t believe in fate, but the…

DEEP SUNDAYS… ADAM PSYBE

ADAM PSYBE is acclaimed for being one of the worlds youngest PSYCHADELIC ARTISTS. Of course, his growing reputation isn’t based solely on his age. His work is incredible! Check out a quick Vine I snapped while hanging out at his NYC apartment, astounded by his pieces, then I’ve got some DEEP tunes for…

DUBSTEP BEFORE THE AMERICAN BRO

Do you remember when DUBSTEP was awesome? No really, do you? Because originally it was. But perhaps you missed out on that period of underground ingenuity. Or perhaps your memories have just been tarnished by the unfortunate outcome of what it became.

An old…

DEAD AIR BASS 020 (DIRTY V-DAY SPECIAL: PDA) ((February 2015))

V-Day is looming, and that means it’s time for the 2nd annual DIRTY VALENTINES SPECIAL. An hour of hyper sexualized dance music and the mixing is gonna be as dirty as the tunage. This year’s theme is PDA, which either stands for ‘Public Displays of Affection’ … OR … ‘Pu$$y, Dick, & A$$’. Tune…

NEW MUSIC MONDAYS VOL. 022

I’ll eat just about anything. My friends are always amazed at the volume of food I can put down, and I’m pretty much the opposite of picky. It’s weird but, the only thing I can think of that grosses me out to the point where I won’t eat it is YOGURT. Only the sweet warm…

***THE DEAD ART OF DJING*** a rant by Gobs

Prior to 2011, I had been considering a career move to full-time DJ more and more. I had a great day job that prevented me from touring, and it was a very tough decision to quit that job, but in late 2011, with some positive reinforcement from my agent, I finally said goodbye to the…

DEAD AIR ELECTRO 027 (FRESH FOR ’15) ((JANUARY 2015))

A couple years ago, I kicked off the January show with a set of the freshest and newest tunes in my collection. I’m thinking we should do it again. This is gonna be a weird show, covering a wide spectrum of different sounds, so if you’re in the mood for something straight-forward, maybe you…

DEAD FRIDAYS: NYC BOOTLEGGIN’

My good buddy, ROCCO FERRER, once mentioned that some of his all-time favourite tracks are BOOTLEG REMIXES. I have to agree with him there. Some of the best music in the world gets made without permission from the original artists. A Bootleg is often the result of a good producer hearing something they…

MIXTAPE REVIEW: KEVLAR IN THE HOUSE

I’m always happiest when I’m able to feature an artist who I also consider a friend. Of course, in order to get featured, that friend still needs to be doing something that is artistically worthy of a feature. With that in mind, I’m overjoyed to be reviewing a mix by my homeboy, Kev. Nice one!
