The art of DJing: Jeff Mills

quote [ After so many years you learn how to pace it. I don't sweat, hardly ever. Because I've conditioned myself to not sweat so much. When it's very hot, very humid, I move less. Because I've been in many cases where it's just a disaster, I can't touch the mixer because it's soaking wet, with humidity dripping down, I can't grip the line levels and stuff. Sweat dripping, the headphones and the whole thing just becomes a mess. So over time I can't control that. ]

Talking about DJing is often as obnoxious as discussing Espresso machines but this interview somehow transports the relaxed craftsmanship of a veteran. Ok, a bit obnoxious maybe.

Also: no vinyl, interestingly.

Nine Inch Nails' decade-old April Fools' joke album is now real, validating today's celebrations

quote [ Ten years ago today, Nine Inch Nails made a bad April Fool?s joke by announcing a ?new full-length album? called Strobe Light. The mock-up track list detailed 14 songs, complete with intro and outro skits, titles like ?Coffin On The Dancefloor,? and a line-up of guests including Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and Fergie. As continued evidence that this happened back in 2009, the album was supposed to have been produced by Timbaland. ]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, with your nine inch nails

Totally forgot about this guy ? there he is, still releasing albums to his fanbase.

I recall often playing «Yellow lasers» back then and only recently getting the lyrics.

Goat Punishment

quote [ It felt so close to what I wanted to do. I thought, ?I can write chord progressions like that. I can write melodies like that. This is something I can do.? This was right around when Weezer started. ]

Looking up some old Nirvana song I realized I've been listening to a bootleg cover played by Weezer all along!

Digging deeper here's the bootleg release, a fan wiki and a fittting Rolling Stone interview. Plus a conspiracy theory subreddit.
