audion

Matthew Dear will be premiering the LIVE show for his burgeoning Audion project next Saturday, February 22nd at El Rey Theater here in Los Angeles. From what we understand, this is going to be one hell of a spectacle, with the brains behind Vita Motus (the visual design company responsible for Amon Tobin’s ISAM performance) creating a one-of-a-kind experience matching the sounds of Audion with state of the art lighting, which Dear describes as “a living, breathing fusion of leftfield techno, glowing LED lights and dazzling sound-reactive visuals that’s at turns disorienting, beautiful, and terrifying.”

SOUNDS AWESOME RIGHT? Enter to win a pair of tickets to the show below. Winner will be announced next week.

Dave Metzo takes you back to the “Circus” with his new track [Premiere]

Combine every repressed memory about the circus you may have. Now think about how that would sound. Dave Metzo has delivered that fear to life with his new track “Circus”. Released through Electrocity Limited, the label is well known for producing hypnotic techno loops and deep house sounds that make you move. This time they both have produced another listening experience that represents the underground culture of minimal sounds into this new track.

“Circus” includes techno and deep house sounds with a mixture of hard pounding beats. The distant vocals and circus-like sounds combine into a creepy visual of every bad dream you ever had about clowns. Nonetheless, this track features an upbeat tempo that will most likely grab your attention.

Sluggers’ Sex Bots Love Techno

Sluggers threw a haymaker with December’s seven-track Phantom Fade EP on OWSLA’s Nest IV, and the tense and techy Turbo Fade now sports a sex-selling sci-fi video.



The retro computer and cartoon visuals take us inside the operating terminal and manufacturing bay for the endless platoons of Sluggers brand sex bots seen marching off to spread the word of Sluggers’ mastery of techno… one pre-programmed favor at a time. Wait, are those little ones the robots from the Putty Boy Strut video? How’d they get out?

Diamondstein make a visual remix for 3 Teeth’s “Pearls 2 Swine”

I deliver you another 3 TEETH remix and this time Los Angeles duo Diamondstein, combined their sound with a video to go along with the remix. While the boys from 3 TEETH are regularly spending time in the studio their release date for their debut album comes closer. They have already made it available for pre-order for CD and vinyl through Artoffact Records.  This remix is one of the many which will be featured on their widely anticipated debut album.

The remix for "Pearls 2 Swine" combines the electronic and techno vibes from Diamondstein. Including that glitch sound mixed with smooth and heavy bass tempo that flows perfectly through the looping vocals. The remix video features numerous dark and ominous clips as they fuse into an audio and visual experience that lures you into a trance-inducing reality. The LA duo are known for their visual style that goes into their work and they captured the true sounds of 3 TEETH through this remix video.

Spotify Spotlight 06: OWSLA

We’re back for another edition of our Spotify Spotlight series, with this week’s playlist focusing on mega label OWSLA. Headed up by electronic music superstar Skrillex in Los Angeles, OWSLA has continued to put out boundary-pushing releases since it was created in 2011 and has since signed on an impressive and eclectic group of artists.

In highlighting the label for this week’s playlist, we chose a group of tracks that represent some of the most recent releases on OWSLA spanning a few different genres. These include releases from San Francisco-based trio The M Machine, Alesia, Etnik, Alvin Risk, and many others.

Check out the playlist on Spotify here, or listen below.

Boys Noize Premieres Cold ‘Ich Bin Meine Maschine’ Remix

Boys Noize is one of those rare DJs who’s able to operate comfortably in the realms of both mainstage festival EDM and the underground club scene, collaborating with Skrillex as Dog Blood on the one hand, but then firing back with a steely techno remix of Ich Bin Meine Maschine by experimental electronic artist Atom™ (pictured) on the other.

Uwe “Atom™” Schmidt, alternately known as Atom Heart and Senor Coconut, came up in the ’90s and established a reputation as a restless tinkerer and innovator, releasing at least one record–but often more–nearly every year since his debut in 1988. His most recent is 2013′s HD, which featured the standout single Ich Bin Meine Maschine. Boys Noize’s remix, which follows hot on the heels of this week’s Out Of The Black – The Remixes, shows off the German producer’s techno-purist side, with an overall vibe that’s more closely aligned with Kraftwerk than much of anything that’s making the rounds right now in 2014.

The Ich Bin Meine Maschine remix pack is out now on Beatport via the influential Raster-Noton imprint, and includes additional remixes from Function and also Schmidt himself, operating under his Linear pseudonym.

BPM Through The Eyes Of The Artists

The BPM Festival may be almost a month in the past, but the beats and warmth of Playa Del Carmen are still fresh in the minds of LessThan3. We could wax poetic all day about how BPM beats the pants off of most of the world’s music gatherings, but we’d rather let the artists tell you. We asked eleven BPM 2014 performers what they love about the festival, and everything from the food to the family vibes came up. Check the quotes below, and get excited for Jan. 2015.

“As it was our first [BPM], we had loads of expectations and heard plenty of good things in advance. We can say it’s even better than what we heard. The place, the vibe, the people, the food, seeing friends from all over the globe, hanging out with your crew, hearing other great artists–the list goes on.”

“This year was not only the best BPM Festival, but possibly the best week-long festival I’ve ever been to. I was there from the first record until the last, and all of the madness in between and every day was amazing. The DJs were all on their A-game playing great sets. It was great catching up with all my dear friends and artists from around the world, and Playa is always such a great vibe.”

“BPM might be one of the most amazing festivals I have ever been to. You can tell the staff really loves what they do because they are all so nice and organized, and it’s unbelievable how many artists come down and share music with each other. It’s so amazing to be in such a beautiful location just hanging with everyone on the beach and hopping around to all of these parties. I wish it would last a month and not just a week!”

“The location. The time of year. Nearly everything is a simple walk from wherever you’re standing. I see it as an industry holiday for us after the normal holiday madness has ended. Just so laid back yet with excellent parties which are mostly outdoors on the beach! And then Tulum is just a short jaunt away and you can really vacation properly there if you choose.”

Boys Noize Back In Black With Remix Pack

Full-length artist albums are a rarity in the world of dance music today, which helps to explain why 2012′s Out of the Black from Alex “Boys Noize” Ridha felt like such a capital-e Event. And full-length remix albums are almost non-existent–but Ridha aims to change that with his new Out Of The Black – The Remixes, out today via the DJ’s own Boysnoize Records imprint.

Lesser remix packs can often feel as though they’re haphazardly tossed together, and with good reason–most listeners are likely to absorb subsequent remixes as standalone tracks, rather than as a package deal. This is most definitely not the case with Out Of The Black – The Remixes, which flows like a purpose-built LP in its own right. Beginning with Jimmy Edgar’s What You Want dub remix and running all the way through Housemeister’s retro remix of Circus Full Of Clowns, we’re treated to a lengthy series of unique new mixes from A-list talent that is held together by the unmistakable thread of electro-techno that runs through all of Boys Noize’s original productions.

Boys Noize’s Out Of The Black – The Remixes is out today; stream the whole thing on SoundCloud, then pick it up on iTunes. Also out today is the video for Got It featuring Snoop Dogg, which you can stream below:
