New York-based DJ-production duo Designer Drugs apparently clocked up more than 300,000 air miles in the past year, highlighting the fact that these two men are as busy as almighty fuck right now. The album Hardcore/Softcore is set to drop, and the guys (Patrick and Theodore Paul Nelson) have been remixing everyone from Mariah Carey to Thieves Like Us. They’re nothing if not in-demand, and one listen to “Dead Meat” will tell you exactly why. They offer uncompromising, heavy and kinda nasty club tunes that have an industrial edge and a touch of punk too. Got to love that combo.
This multimedia performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art could be a great way to get into alignment for a weekend of electronic music. The headline act is Chromatic Jackie, a collaborative ensemble is made up of a dancer, a musician and a visual artist. The trio, which recently made its first live appearance at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, mixes computer-generated visuals from artist Dana Bell, sound fragments from Sam Consiglio (formerly of Adult. and Tamion 12 Inch) and movement from dancer Sari Nordman, all choreographed to an original sound piece written for this project. James Marlon Magas will perform as Magas, and the guy has been making music since he was in avant-rock bands Couch and Lake of Dracula in the early 1990s. He’s gone on to become an electronic solo musician with releases on the Ersatz Records label. Between performances, super-popular DJ sets from Disco/Secret and Macho City.
