SMUT PUSHERS 90s MIXTAPE VOL 2 SIDE 1 - COVER

SMUT PUSHERS 90s MIXTAPE VOL 2 – SIDE 2

I’ve been wanting to put together a new SMUT PUSHERS 90s MIXTAPE, literally, for years. This past weekend, I finally got a decent excuse.

From 2007 through 2009, me and VIVI DIAMOND threw a debaucherous dance party, called THUNDERPUSSY, Sundays, inside Toronto’s legendary Bovine Sex Club.

The wildest nights we ever had were our NO…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: ALL THAT I WANT IS AN ACE OF BASE REUNION

Generally, we consider great music to come from passion inspired artistic expression. Isn’t it funny how, when it comes to POP music, that isn’t necessarily the case, at all?

ACE OF BASE – ALL THAT SHE WANTS

Following ABBA‘s lead for arrangement, 3 Swedish siblings, and a mutual friend formed…

DEAD FRIDAYS: SORRY, NOT SORRY

You might call them “guilty pleasures”, but in the case of the 5 tracks below, there’s not guilt involved. I’ll shout it loud and proud. I LOVE THESE TUNES!

 

10000 SPOONS – MONTY IN A BOTTLE

A bunch of POP acapellas laid over an 8-BIT video game theme? It’s just ridiculous enough that it’s completely awesome! Especially…

MUSEUM MONTHLY: Live Indie – A DJ’s Journey Away From Top 40

by VIVI DIAMOND of WAX MUSEUM

For many commercial DJs I know, the new Top 40 being released has become unbearable and even non-existent. After the explosion of EDM in the mainstream, music has seen a massive separation of styles. For most of the 6 years I’ve been djing…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: LET’S DANCE TO SOME BOWIE

The single most important person in the history of popular music is DAVID BOWIE. “…he has permeated and altered more lives than any comparable figure.” – David Buckley

DAVID BOWIE – LET’S DANCE

It’s the title of both his biggest hit single, and best selling album, so it might surprise you to know that LET’S DANCE was…



top 10 2013

TOP 10 of 2013

It was such an amazing year for music, that I had quite a difficult time narrowing it all down to a TOP 10 LIST. After many hours of number crunching, and 2 full hours of BASS & ELECTRO podcasts, I’ve finally arrived at the 2013 edition of this annual DKGL tradition.



Ravolution & Partysmartie

NEW MUSIC MONDAYS VOL. 005

At the turn of the Millenium, I had hair down to my ass, and I would style it different for every rave. Sometimes my whole head would be braded, or I’d tie it up into a bunch of little buns. Sounds girly, I know, but back then, the rave scene was very sexually ambiguous. The…

NEW MUSIC MONDAYS: VOL 004

One night, a few years back, I was after-partying with Hardcore pioneers, Scoot Brown, and Sharkey. They were both snorting heroic amounts of blow. I was pissed drunk and kept referring to them as “these 2 cunts”. I thought I was hilarious! Perhaps Mr. Brown did not. Proceeding the nasal ingestion of yet another line,…
