I recentely got word of Gigmaven. They offer free online show booking for musicians. Saves the artists and venues time and money and also makes the booking process alot easier and more efficient. Good stuff. Check out their blog as well, HERE.

This year, in my opinion was the year of Dub. Dubstep has flourished throughout the underground electronic scenes across the world this past year and is on the cusp of going mainstream. This DECKast encompasses dubminimal frequencies, grimey textures, and the future sounds of bass; ultimately giving you the hereafter sound of music. Enjoy!

Back in March of this past year Lone did a spell-bounding mix for Andrew Meza's BTS Radio. The mix encompasses beats that range from jazz/lounge to spacey captivating tones that make your body sway side to side and make your head bop back and forth. This is possibly my favorite guest mix done on BTS radio. Great stuff.

2. Ariel PInk's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today
Never really could understand the true joy of this band until I saw them live. His psychedelic, post-modernized, 70s vibe speaks volumes in his soulfully musical career, and is even more emphasized in the fearsome album he put out this year . Its perfect in so many ways. Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti turns my dark days into bright ones.
1.Teebs - Ardour
Beats never sounded so beautiful and serene. Teebs' debut album incorporates wavy-basslines and chiming earthy textures into an alluring 18 track masterpiece. With each listen a new sound is discovered in its prepossessing layers of greatness. Too great for words, really, you must listen for yourself.

Glitch-experimentalist, My Dry Wet Mess of Magical Properties, drops an eclectic 13min mix for your ears to be exposed to.
My Dry Wet Mess - The Fucked Up Karaoke mixtape
Bonus :: Here's a remix he did of Flying Lotus', 'Pie Face', about a month ago...
Flying Lotus - PieFace (My Dry Wet Mess rmx)
Lo-fi thrash punk duo, POPO, releases new track entitled, 'Let's Get Away'. The two brothers are definitely taking a new approach on their upcoming album, which will most likely be released on Mad Decent. This track is far more refined and defined in terms of production and style compared to their previous work, and I'm liking the direction they are going. The chillwave pop infused tune explores deep space synths and resounds with a flute, that gives you an automatic head change, with its mesmerizing sound waves.
