Scumcast! 8:End of the World Party

Here again. Meant to return sooner but as per the usual, every piece of technology I own decided to break the fuck down on me within a three day span. I don't know why this in unison bs always happens to me. Granted, some of this had to do with me knocking my laptop off my bed after passing out drunk and cracking the screen (twice in a one month span), but still all the other stuff was pretty uncalled for, gawdammit. I'll spare you the details... but yeah, maybe it was more like a mix between a firestorm and my own personal shitstorm. O wellll....

But I hope you didn't go and get the idea that I'm all about <3-on-yr-sleeveyness and twirling around forevs and evs after that last one. It's all one giant see-saw to me and after that one I got the urge to balance the fucker out in a way I've been threatening to do for awhile now. Yeah that's right yall, it's time for another ELECTROINDIEBLOGHOUSEBNGATHON.....M0THRAFUGGZ0RZZ!11!!1

Now before you start trying to think, let me say a few things about this one. First, I'd say it's probably my first ever "official" dance mix. That is, this is the first one where I stuck to my guns and didn't wander into heady territories or veer off course into experimentalism because I felt compelled to do so. Granted this has everything from old school industrial to street bass to techie minimal stuff...but the main gist of it is dark, hard, evil blog jams and heavy basslines galore. This is built exactly how I would want a dance set of this type to go energy-wise and as far as I'm concerned, I murdered it.

But anyway, I decided to do this mix for a couple reasons. For one, as far as I can see, the new electro movement has reached it's zenith. Like, I'd say pretty much everybody who is gonna know about Justice knows about Justice. And cause of the myspace and all that, the young ones are all about this shit. At the end of the day, you really can't argue with that. I follow everything I can because I can't really help myself and I have definilly collected plenty of jams of this variety over the past 3 years or so. So I figured my job here is to steer new dance fans young and old away from the mountains of god-awful hipster bullshit clogging the intertubes and towards the dudes who are really doing ill shit within this spectrum.

Also, I won't go and say that this is on some deep serato crates shit either. A lot of these are the big 'choons that you might've heard dudes like Erol or Boys Noize playing out. A couple are even probably a few weeks too old (gasp!). But as far as what I like and can get ahold of, this is a fairly thorough survey of the past couple months. Most importantly to me, it's mixed really fast and well and makes me think I could be rocking festivals or something. Sighhh, if only I was well connected and knew how to properly market myself... ::wamp womppppp::

But anyway, it's out there, right here at the high water mark, before the great electro recession of 2009 and all the impending devastation that will follow in the years to come. For more on that, consult the growing inkling that is worming around in the back of yr mind...or go and check out the makeshift gallery I put up within the shitty confines of the picture section of the myspace. I've been doing a great job of being brief and ominous over there, so hopefully you didn't come from there and are now reading my nerd out and are all bummed that I'm anything but vague. Be sure to check it out soon though cuz myspace doesn't seem to enjoy how deep my internet gets. They've already been pruning pictures left and right and threatening to shut me down. Thanx Rupert (OoOops, I mean "Tom")!

Anyway, I should be back with a whole new angle fairly soon (time frames are my own personal joke so im gonna stop alluding to them). In the meantime, go ahead and blast this shit when you need to wyle the fuck out like there's no tomorrow. Who knows...there just might not be :)
