Out Now: Robbie Rivera – That’s a Good Meatball

710 150 Tim Gauthier

Robbie Rivera, born in 1973 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, had his first encounter with music when he was only 10-years-old. Buying records from acts like New Order, Depeche Mode and U2, it wasn’t long before he started spinning records. It was the disco sampled cut “Nothing To Offer” that lead to an endless string of productions that were released on established labels like Subliminal, Filtered, Positiva, Mos, Azuli and Strictly Rhythm.

The Return Of The Russian — Presenting Dim Mak’s Newest Artist: Proxy

960 350 Tim Gauthier

In the Russian port city of Vladivistok, near the country’s borders with China and North Korea, Proxy was born into a world of relative cultural isolation. No scene from which to emerge. No connections on which to draw. A lone Prodigy show amid hundreds of thousands in Red Square inspired him to crush the masses with synthesizers. A demo submitted to Tiga’s MySpace led to an arranged marriage with Turbo Recordings, a shining Western meritocracy.

Proxy was immediately accepted as a peer by the likes of Soulwax, Tiga, Mr. Oizo and Erol Alkan on the strength of astonishing, severe tracks like “Decoy”, “Dance in Dark” and the beyond-massive instant classic “Raven”. He has also been called upon to remix artists including Moby, The Prodigy, Peaches, ZZT, Digitalism, Boys Noize, and Azari & III. Their respect for his talent also bespeaks a certain degree of fear, much in the way prosperous nations will ally themselves with nuclear superpowers because they know it is in their most basic interest to do so.

To all our avid Twitter followers, and frequents of the #FF shoutouts, we have adorned a whole new meaning towards this overused Friday chant-off… Presenting #FreeFriday. Starting on Friday the 13th, we will be giving away a different track, possibly unreleased, rare, old, new or wherever in between, on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. As bit-rate quality seems to be a common concern for anything ‘given away’, all downloads will be offered in 320kbps. This means you’ll be able to bring something new to the dancefloor each weekend in full mp3 luxury.

Atari Teenage Riot Goes for the Lulz With Anonymous

849 392 Tim Gauthier

… To begin with, Alec Empire has a history with Sony — he’d sued them for copyright infringement after another song was included in a Sony ad without permission, and he settled, still feeling ripped off. Part of his dissatisfaction was hearing his music in a commercial at all.

Now Sony was back in Empire’s life — and asking this time. Empire knew at once what he wanted to do.

“I was actually on the phone and had to slow down my pulse and breathe… so the excitement wouldn’t be audible in my voice.”
