Inequality on the Dancefloor: Female DJs Still Fight For Their Right to Airplay...
Jun 19, 2013 2:19pm | The Daily Swarm
The dance music scene is bigger and badder than ever, taking more chart space and influence that it’s ever enjoyed, well, probably ever. But that doesn’t mean PLUR vibes are strong in the universe.
Great female DJs are not really that rare, but it is rare to hear them on the radio, find them headlining festivals or even find themselves part of the daily EDM discussion. Legendary female DJ Annie Mac recently asked just what the hell that was all about. Actually, she blurted out that the EDM world needs more of a female presence at the BBC Academy’s Radio Fast Track conference last year.
Now that EDM business is on the brain, the Guardian UK took a closer look at the female DJs modern reality:
Whirr releasing a new mini-LP, announce tour (dates, stream)
Jun 19, 2013 2:15pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
California shoegazers Whirr (whose Nick Bassett used to be one of the revolving members in post-metal crew Deafheaven) are set to release a new mini-LP, Around, on July 9 via Graveface. The first single from that release, "Swoon," is total shoegaze in terms of atmosphere, but the music itself is darker, heavier, and more similar melodically to a band like Hum than MBV. Check that song out below.
Whirr will be supporting the new mini-LP with a tour this summer. Many of the dates on the tour are with Nothing, including the NYC show happening on August 13 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but check Ticketfly for updates. All dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Nothing also open for Deafheaven when their tour with Marriages comes to NYC for a show at Saint Vitus (7/2) (IO Presents). That show is totally sold out.
All Whirr dates are listed, along with that song stream, below...

Punk weirdos Wavves release another oddball clip with “That’s On Me.” This one is way less trippy than “Afraid Of Heights,” but still contains multitudes of absurdity. Whether it’s a suit seeking stress-relief via slicing up soda bottles or parody metal dude standing in for Nathan Williams, the video is filled with quirk. Check it out below.

Stream the sublime new Mu-Ziq LP Chewed Corners now
Jun 19, 2013 2:05pm | Fact Magazine
We are the µ-Ziq makers.
It’s been way too long since the last solo album from Planet Mu boss and veritable electronic music survivor Mike Paradinas (six years to be exact), but now we finally get to hear his long awaited new opus. It’s quite surprising too – a long way from the hiccuping fast edits and corrosive breaks of his earlier ‘drill ‘n bass’ material, Chewed Corners is a remarkably more cinematic affair.
Paradinas appears to be taking a leaf out of fellow Mu veteran Kuedo’s book and looking to Vangelis’s Blade Runner OST for influence, and that’s no bad thing at all – just check the thick, doomy synth-laden textures on ‘Christ Dust’ for proof. It’s not all doom and gloom though, Paradinas’ unshakable zany streak is present throughout, and by the time we reach the album’s final track ‘Weakling Paradinas’ we may as well be in Ibiza.

Listen: New Eminem Track 'Symphony in H'...
Jun 19, 2013 1:53pm | The Daily Swarm
Eminem has secured his spot as one of the greatest rappers of all time, but that doesn’t mean he’s retiring anytime soon, especially now that he’s sober and kicking out hits again.
Speaking of hits, here comes another on on the horizon. It’s called “Symphony in H,” and it’s got some great lines concerning girls and drugs and drips all kinds of Marshall Mathers venom. Check the preview from this radio rip.
Watch the quirky video for JJ DOOM
Jun 19, 2013 1:49pm | Fact Magazine
JJ DOOM get the royal treatment with this new video from street artist Steve ‘ESPO’ Powers.
Still exiled in London, mysterious rapper DOOM took advantage of his location in this fresh video for album cut ‘Bookhead’, trawling around a local corner shop (or bodega to our US readers) and ending up in a used book store. The track was chopped from 2012 collaborative album with producer Jneiro Jarel Key To The Kuffs, but it’s the video that wins out here, especially when DOOM hijacks the bodega’s fisheye mirror and uses it as a replacement mask. We can only imagine how difficult that was for the camera crew.
