For this blissful Thursday, I would like to share an enigmatic track of Bat for Lashes' second album 'Two Suns'. It is obvious to myself why I love this- having grown up on 'shoe gaze' goth music. This song contains many layers in a bittersweet harmony- sadness, joy, and fear are all palpable. Truly hypnotic.

The whole album is a treat for the ears. Enjoy.

Long hiatus...

Its so good to see my old blogger friends still on the radar as it were. I hope to regularly post entries, but I always feel absurdly depressed when I consider updating. I will try forcing myself to at least update every week with mp3s and soundcloud songs by some underground artists and DJs.

In non-music related news, I will be moving to Sacramento next month! Very excited for the move, and the chance to find a half-decent job. Los Angeles has been cruel to me, job wise. I have a few interviews lined up in the new city.

Have this Ke$ha remix, friends. :)

OH MAN....

sorry for the delay in postings. I have been quasi-distracted by the new semester and other life problems. I begin my 'comeback' with a humble request:

Please comment and help me earn $ome street cred on blogger again, bros. For every comment, I click and comment. :)

alright then. Lets hope this works.

Le Castle Vania is an electronic dance music project created by Atlanta-based DJ Dylan Eiland. Eiland began DJing at warehouse parties and raves in Atlanta at age 16 after playing in some traditional rock bands and unsuccessfully attempting to master the drums. Eiland uses a simple setup, including a laptop computer, a mixer, and two turntables. He writes his songs on his laptop, often while traveling on airplanes, and prefers to play a larger number of his original work compared to his remixes.

stuffing the mushrooms

alright mother lovers, in lieu of flogging electro music to death in this blog...I am going to show you something a smidgen different; how to make your own stuffed mushrooms.

These mouth watering appetizers are sure to please your friends or family at any shindig you throw, or even just satisfy a craving of your own. The ingredients are simple enough- you should have all of the things needed for preparation. Just buy some decent white mushrooms for this one.


12 whole fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Carefully break off stems. Chop stems extremely fine, discarding tough end of stems.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and chopped mushroom stems to the skillet. Fry until any moisture has disappeared, taking care not to burn garlic. Set aside to cool.
When garlic and mushroom mixture is no longer hot, stir in cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, onion powder and cayenne pepper. Mixture should be very thick. Using a little spoon, fill each mushroom cap with a generous amount of stuffing. Arrange the mushroom caps on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the mushrooms are piping hot and liquid starts to form under caps.

These go best with a squirt of lemon juice if you have any. Bon appetit!

It's a "Beautiful" day...

Today i would like to introduce you to a fairly unknown bass and drum duo; Brookes Brothers. They will be playing at Escape From Wonderland this year!! Hailing from London all the way from the United Kingdom, they enjoy making a higher caliber of drum and bass, not just focused on rhythm but soul as well. Just listen to tracks like 'Snowman' and you will see why they have such a collective of fans.

Paypal donations are still needed if you would like to help me purchase a ticket to the event! My paypal is
