We're in the triple digit nasty weather here in the lone star state, and the sweatbox asethtic is fully-tilted. On the DJ front, Panoptikon
is on hiatus until Saturday September 23rd, at which point I'll resume my residency and will be back in the V.I.P. dropping more freakbeat electo and dark wave booty jams. And look out for the Hospital Fetish Party, that's going to be a whole new level of nuts!
On the production front, Zygote
& yours truly, Stephen Ruiz
) have been slaving away at Salim Nourallah's Pleasantry Lane Studio
working on the new full-length record, "Radio Anthems for the Newly Disenfrnchized" which is slated for late fall, early winter release 2006.
On the DJ/Remix/Production front, I have been bearing the fruits of insomnia, jamming the remix competition circuit dropping remixes for the Mochipet
and Spank Rock
battles, the later of which was given a nice boost by local taste maker, Gorilla Vs. Bear
. To quote, "...when a local DJ makes a remix as ill as this one, I'm all ears
." Hot damn. Also, I heard a rumor that I might be turning up as a guest on the G vs. B affiliated Blog Radio
on Sirius Satellite. Stay tuned..... Also, I'm taking a swing a remixing local Hip-Hop legend, Pikahsso
. I'll be in the lab for a minute on this one, trust me!
Check out the mixes here:http://www.myspace.com/zygote
BTW, I'm in the process of putting up a DJ Stephen R. Myspace music page, so you can get more off the goodness soon.
