    Minimal Mixes from Two Miami DJs

    Surprise! There is other dance music in Miami besides big-room 7:00 a.m. house. Regulars at small underground spots like Laundry Bar and Blue know this already. Here, a couple mixes from two of Miami's techno warriors, devoted to that sound birthed ...

    The Jazzified Seeds of Techno

    So I came across this video while cruising the internet and couldn't believe how much electronic music has grown since these days. Picture Herbie Hancock teaching Quincy Jones how to make techno beats. Yeah, that's what I thought, ridiculous right......

    Still a P.I.M.P. - My man-crush on 50 Cent

    Thankfully I was nowhere near 50 Cent when he learned Kanye West's new CD was going to beat his. 50 famously vowed to stop making solo albums if he lost their first-week sales battle, and he did lose -- by the score of 957,000 to 691,000 -- although...

    Straight from the Source - The hip-hop arm of Beatport.com is ready for the big takeover

    Karu & Y

    On a recent Saturday night, Karu & Y (71 NW 14th St., Miami; 305-403-7850) gave new meaning to the phrase disco inferno. Inside the 5000-square-foot Tottem Lounge, one of the sprawling complex's clubs-within-a-club, a Seventies-theme party unfolded ...

    Freddy Cole Quartet

    There's a number in Fred Cole's live set in which he addresses head-on the fact that he is Nat "King" Cole's "baby" brother. It's a midtempo blues song that encapsulates the challenges of such a distinction, and his performances of it practically ov...

    The Vibrators

    The legendary Vibrators may be getting long in the tooth, but they're hardly short on energy and O.G. punk spirit. The quartet could school any spikey-haired-come-lately in true road warrior style and longevity: They got together in London in 1976, ...

    The Missing Piece - The Respect for Layne Staley campaign says no Layne, no Chains

    The history of the sludgy, heavy rockers of Alice in Chains has been as misery-riddled as much of the band's music. Its sound owed less to punk than it did to, say, metal, but its Seattle origin and late-Eighties birth date meant it was swiftly pige...
