A little gem we’ve stumbled across on the interwebs.
Simple break down; He is Rap, he’s never listened to rap, the lenses of his glasses are missing, he must have amazing vision, bottomless mimosas, loves Charlize Theron, pussy & brunch.

Atari Teenage Riot & KROQ Present an Exclusive Coachella Mix

710 150 Tim Gauthier

As you may know, ATR will be heading to the desert as part of Coachella, set to perform Friday April 13th and 20th. Make sure you make it a point to see them live at Coachella! In the late 90s Atari Teenage Riot (ATR) emerged out of the electronica genre, to subvert all rules of rock and techno music. The seminal band was too radical in its views and statements and simply too loud and noisy to fit in neatly inside any genre. ATR’s records stand as a testament to the years 1992-2000, where anything seemed possible.

Jay-Z’s Life + Times Interviewed Steve Aoki

Tim Gauthier

Now that the dust of Austin, TX has settled, the editorials recapping the month-long SxSW event have started to appear. Jay-Z’s “Life + Times” had managed to get ahold of Steve during his SxSW performance, to touch a little more on the January-release of “Wonderland”

It’s a Friday night in Austin, Texas and the air is abuzz with people from every corner of the globe looking to get a bite of SXSW’s musical offerings. Steve Aoki, one of electronic dance music’s biggest DJs, producer and founder of Dim Mak Records, closes out the mtvU Woodie Awards with a high intensity set and unexpected drop-in from Lil’ Jon to perform “Turbulence.” After the performance, Aoki, clad in graffiti jeans and a loose Dim Mak tank, looks more like he just walked off a plane from Los Angeles instead of a humid, hot Texas stage after an energetic DJ set. Here, Aoki sits with Life + Times to talk about everything from the future of dance music to his fashion collection.
