NO MORE MONSTER!!!

A real pet peeve of mine is lazy naming of songs. When you’re deciding on a title for your tune, you should pick something original. Something that can be easily identified with you. It should be your song, and only your song, that comes up in a Google search by it’s name. This just makes…

MUSEUM MONTHLY: HOW THE INTERNET SAVED DJING (IN TORONTO)

This monthly blog has become basically an outlet for me to complain about how everything has had a negative effect on music & djs, how people generally suck, how advertising has a terrible impact on the music industry, and how everything has become disposable, etc. etc. Today’s edition started out in a very similar way…

 

So…



DKGL 4 COVER 1

DKGL YEAR 4 – THE JUMPOFF!!!

I’m sure you’ve noticed that things have changed around here. DKGL has an exciting new, responsive layout to kick off Year 4. It’s sleek, sophisticated, and maybe even a little more grown up. Don’t go thinking I’ve gone all mature on you. This blog is still gonna be tonnes of fun.

Today, we add to the SHIT! category, but this time, it’s shit in the most wonderful way!

FOXDYE

My homeboy, Dave, was telling me all about his adventures at the 2012 BANGFACE WEEKENDER. Out of all his amazing experiences there, one of the highlights was a set from…

Musuem Mondays: How Avicii Made Me Respect Him…And Subsequently Hate Him.

Its June of 2013, and I have had a long and tumultuous relationship with Avicii’s music. For two years we’ve all been stuck in the post ‘Levels’ phenomena, trying to accept how the song that DJs, from across genres applauded, became the theme song for the worst social movement of our time: the fist pumping…



FINDING A GEM IN A PILE OF SHITTY DUBSTEP

I buy a lot of compilations. When it comes to purchasing music, they’re the best bang for your buck, because you get a lot of tunes for very little money per unit. The music industry knows this all too well. As music becomes ever more disposable and difficult to market individual artists, many labels have…



MUSEUM MONDAYS: TOP 40’S BASTARDIZATION OF HOUSE MUSIC

This month’s topic is the introduction of Top 40 artists sampling house songs and rapping over them. While ViVi was certain the 2008 Mims remix of Enur’s ‘Calabria’ had spurred this phenomenon, of course, Pitbull was the first, and true pioneer of this style.

Well wait, before…



GAGNAM STYLE ABOMINATION

I’m gonna assume that anybody reading this blog understands why GAGNAM STYLE is a shitty song. For anyone with any passion for music, that goes without saying. Okay, fine. It’s a stupid song with a stupid dance to go with it. If you’re cheesy enough to derive enjoyment from it (clearly most human beings are),…



DKGL RETURNS TO RULE THE POST-APOCALYPSE!!!

We are now officially in the POST-APOCALYPSE. Could there be a more perfect time for the OFFICIAL RELAUNCH of DEAD KIDS GET LIVELY???

No doubt you’ve noticed that DKGL has an exciting new look. Well, the layout isn’t the only thing that’s brand…
