Electric Zoo / Identity Lineups Released

May 5, 2011

I mentioned this last night, but I figured this deserved its own post.  EZ is three days this year and Identity is a new nationwide electronic tour with a lineup that’s an awesome complement to EZ’s lineup without much overlap.  Absolutely planning on going to both.  Dates and the preliminary lineup for Identity as well as ticket prices for EZ after the jump.

Thirsty Thursday: Lil’ Jon

January 27, 2011

Every Thursday, That Whiiite aspires to fuel your ignorance with Thirsty Thursday, bringing you high-tempo jams that are the audio equivalent of Four Loko.  Indulge in the seediest depths of your soul and come get white-boy wasted with us.  Click here for the Thirsty Thursday archives.

FIRST, how much respect do you have for Lil’ Jon?  How many equally talent-less producers completely fall out of the game like Jermaine Dupri  or over-exert themselves like Diddy?  Lil’ Jon is humble enough to know that his marginal benefit for music is exactly equal to Fatman Scoop.  That’s fine though, since Fatman Scoop is responsible for THE GREATEST PARTY SONG OF ALL TIME.  Seriously tho, how many people in music enough are humble enough to know exactly what they bring to the table, and don’t try to do one thing more?  The answer’s not surprising when 9-minute rap videos with ballerinas are considered transcendent.

Related: how fucking good is “Be Faithful“?  Everyone today thinks that more is better, but it leads to messy and arbitrary mashups that are better known for their notoriety than their energy.  The best part about Be Faithful is that nobody knows any of the songs it samples anymore but it’s still a club staple.  The lesson as always: screaming all over the track is always the best choice.

SECOND, I realize this Sidney Samson remix is pretty much the same song as “Amsterdam,” but it’s still amazing.  I have every intention of milking this Dutch house movement until it makes people prefer sitting at home quietly to doing drugs and hearing 800 siren stabs in a shade under three minutes.  This song reminds me of the “songs” I used to make in Fruity Loops in 2005.  If only I had access to Lil’ Jon.  God bless the Netherlands and the internet.

Thirsty Thursday: The Bloody Beetroots

January 20, 2011

Every Thursday, That Whiiite aspires to fuel your ignorance with Thirsty Thursday, bringing you high-tempo jams that are the audio equivalent of Four Loko.  Indulge in the seediest depths of your soul and come get white-boy wasted with us.  Click here for the Thirsty Thursday archives.

Damn, I had no idea what I was going to do for Thursday Thursday until about 3 A.M. this morning when I stumbled across these fuckers.  Thank god the internet is a cesspool of ignorance.  If I had an “Intelligent Monday” series, it would be deaded in two weeks or so.

ANYWAY, when my children are looking back at this era of music, I hope it resonates as fondly as 80’s metal (should).  Some music should exist solely for the purpose of getting happy-drunk at 81 Linden and throwing your friends into furniture, and I never made the connection before I heard this remix of Metallica just now.  House music celebrates all of the decadence and cheap thrills that Ratt and Motley Crue did.  One of my favorite stories from 80’s metal involves Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, who purposely didn’t put the band’s best songs on their debut album because it was on an independent label and he (rightfully) assumed the band would be on a major label for their second album.  Naturally, they went and spent half of the recording budget for the debut album on drugs and naturally, they went on to sell about 15 million records.  Good times were had by all.  Enjoy.
