VILLAINS + HIFI WINNIPEG + BRITNEY SPEARS + BLOC PARTY + N.A.S.A. + M.I.A. + SANTIGOLD + SPANKROCK

VILLAINS are in Winnipeg again. This time they’re playing at the HIFI CLUB. They killed it at the first show they played here, so I’m expecting more of the same. How could I expect anything less? If you want in on the action Manalogue has a bag of tickets to give away. Give me a holla at submissions [at] manalogue.com.

Yes of course, something to wet your insatiable appetite.

BLOODY BEETROOTS + IAMXL

Like the post below, this from THE BLOODY BEETROOTS and DIM MAK makes me want to dance my face off. Remixed by Vancouver’s IAMXL.

D.I.M.

D.I.M. is playing at Hi Fi Winnipeg tomorrow night!

I still haven’t posted my best of 2008 list, but D.I.M. tweaked and filtered his way to Manalogue’s top remix list with two of his deadly reconstructions. Both have massive breakdowns that progress so perfectly, then climax with sonic beauty.

The Presets – My People (D.I.M. remix)

Tiga & Zyntherius – Sunglasses at Night (D.I.M. remix)

AUTOEROTIQUE

Considering the number of crazy good acts coming to the modest city of Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada I’ve totally dropped the ball highlighting them. Let this be the start of something worthwhile then.

Formally known as VND/LSM, AUTOEROTIQUE are growing in fame thanks to Diplo, who included their bootleg reworking of Rihanna’s Umbrella on Pitchfork. Now representing DIM MAK the pair from Toronto are cutting things up next week at the HIFI CLUB here in Winnipeg.

If you’re in town, visiting or otherwise, Manalogue has some tickets to give away. Tell me why you want to come in an email – be as simple or adventurous as you want with your poetry or prose.

MP3: Lykke Li – Little Bit (AutoErotique Bootleg remix)

EH TEAMERS AT DAY OLD DONUTS

Winnipeg’s favourite anti-ravers DJ HUNNICUT and DJ CO-OP are proud hosts of their weekly DAY OLD DONUTS. This week they’re bringing in a pair of the EH TEAM, DJ Pump and DJ Jr-Flo. Should be a mad presentation of skillz on the ones and twos from some of Canada’s finest. Don’t believe me, check out the KEYS N KRATES footage of their live remixes. Here’s a sneak:

Before you flip, here’s a point of clarification. DJ Jr-Flo is part of the Eh Team, as well as Keys N Krates. This little vid showcases the man’s talents. You can grab all that action for only $5 - check it out at the HiFi Club Thursday, October 9.
