For those of you who had the (mis)fortune to go to the M83 show last Friday October 26 at Lure in Hollywood, you might have noticed that his DJ set was, how shall I say…devoid of any actual DJ-ing. This fools set sounded like he just put the party shuffle on his iTunes. Not one transition, or even an attempt to mix. Hands down the worst spinning I’ve ever heard by someone who apparently gets paid money to do it.
In this digital age, anyone can compile songs into a list and press play. A real DJ has skill in mixing songs and transitioning between them in a creative and seamless manner. I’d be only slightly annoyed if he just pre-mixed a set and stood up there turning knobs with a fake look of intensity as many an EDM performer is known to do…however to not put any effort whatsoever is straight up appalling!
So M83, please gtfo with that weak shit and go back to France. Maybe all the people there are too buzzed from aged wine and smelly cheeses to notice how shitty you actually are.
That being said I actually had a fun night, surprisingly. Jason Bentley from KCRW was there and he always mixes well. However, I was disappointed that only about 38% of people actually wore costumes, but what can you expect from fucking hipsters…
I got a giveaway for all the club rats out there. To enter to win all you gotta do is follow @carnabyclothing on Twitter and/or like Carnaby Street Clothing on Facebook.

If you already like us or follow us, you’re already entered. And you’re super cool. So congrats on that.

Download Big Sean’s latest mixtape Detroit for free HERE. It’s awesome, full of original beats surprisingly good lyrical content with guest stars like J. Cole and Common. It may be a mixtape, but it has the production quality of an actual LP.
Also check out the new song Clique, again with Big Sean, Kanye West and Jay-Z. The beat is cray (in a good way), the lyrics are mediocre and bunch of people will think it’s about the Illuminati…
Snoop a.k.a. Snoopy Doggy Dogg a.k.a. Snoop Lion a.k.a. DJ Snoopadelic has released a new EDM mixtape entitled “Loose Joints.” It’s a chill mix, though it’s more suited for a relaxing drive down PCH than any club-banging and/or fist-pumping antics.
I also don’t understand how one can call oneself a DJ with no actual track mixing or blending whatsoever….but I digress.
Download or stream HERE.

A picture is worth a thousand what-the-fucks…
Awesome track my awesome people. Click the pic to stream Money Makin‘ a fresh & funky electro gem by A-Track and Dillon Francis that’ll get your toes tappin in no time.
Even if you are a broke ass ninja like me and couldn’t afford to attend round 1 of Coachella over the weekend, chances are you heard about the posthumous, weirdo, futuristic type hologram performance of Tupac at the famed music fest. While a few people were stoked to see their favorite rapper reincarnated on stage, most people were upset, some going as far as to say the hologram was “sacrilege” to Tupac’s actual persona.
THIS SHIT IS TOO REAL!
I love ‘Pac as much as anyone who spent a decent amount of their life in the 1990s, but honestly I wasn’t that concerned about the performance, as I was about the fucking hologram in general. Is anyone else not frightened by this technology? Of course it seems cool when we’re jamming to holograms of our favorite dead singers’ but what about when this shit crosses the line?
Will I eventually be able I pay to have sex with an eerily life-like Benjamin Franklin hologram for a large sum of dollar bills (with his face on it)…
I joke but honestly this Holopac has got me freaked out. It seems like humanity is getting closer to the eventual day where there will be no need for actual human contact, and we’ll all live in virtual reality like a huge game of Second Life or that one Bruce Willis movie, “The Surrogates.” And trust me, if you haven’t seen that movie, you don’t want to live through it…it’s a pretty shitty movie.
