whitey and the man

In a press release from the london party And Did We Mention Our Disco?
for the upcoming Whitey appearence (of Kitsune Maison Compilation 4 fame)
to be N.J. Whitey's first ever "Dj Live Set" which is described as
"a stripped-down live performance of his tracks interspersed
with a dancefloor-friendly DJ mix, blurring the boundaries between
a full-on live show and a 'dex-n-fx'-style DJ set."
Although they make it sound like he's personally revolutionized
dance music performance, people have been doing this for a long time.
Dub anyone? the term 'dub' itself implies this technique.
Smart marketing for repackaging the same product.
(please see 'electronica' versus 'techno',
'mash-up' versus 'harmonic mixing witha beat match!")
and im not saying he's a reggae artist...
O and he's skipping Boston on his U.S. tour...coool.

speaking of kitsune, digitalism's new video for "zdarlight"
was directed by none other than labelmates fox n' wolf,
its a weird one.
