Suffice it to say, DEMF was an incredible experience. I’ll be doing a large write up shortly; but for now, just some tracks.

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be leaving for Detroit so you kids be good until I get home. No comment bombing the blog roll or anything. Will return on Tuesday as tired as the above sleepyhead, so posting is iffy until Wednesday or so. Here are some goodies to savor in the meantime.
Stephan Bodzin, “Turbine” [Herzblut Recordings]
Donato Dozzy, “Gol” [Dozzy Records]
Ink & Needle, “Number One” [Tattoorec.com]
Mike Ink, “Playing With Knives” [Kompakt Extra]
Guy J & Sahar Z, “Hazui” (Gui Boratto remix) [Electribe Records]
There are a few fantastic shows to go to this weekend if you’re in Chicago and not escaping to the DEMF (like me). Tonight we have the Mobilee Showcase, featuring the above mentioned artists at Vision Nightclub. On Friday, catch Jesse Rose at Smart Bar or Monolake at the Empty Bottle — either of which is bound to be quality. As if that wasn’t enough to keep most electronic fans broke, Alexander Robotnick performs live at rednofive on Saturday. And just for kicks, here are a couple tracks from some of these artists to get you in the mood to enjoy what Chicago has to offer.
Pan-Pot, “Black Dog” (Jesse Rose remix) [Mobilee]
Exercise One, “Debaya” [Mobilee]
Amox & Atle, “A Witch Kiss” (Ink & Needle remix) [Tic Tac Toe Records]
Króm, “Painting Textures” [Mikrolux]
Brendon Moeller, “Jazz” [Third Ear Recordings]
Undo, “No Matter Where You Are We Are Together” (Donato Dozzy & Modern Heads Remix) [Factor City Records]
Alter Ego, “Satanic Circus” [Klang Electronik]
Marcel Dettmann, “A Req” (T++ Remix) [Marcel Dettmann Records]
My review of Jona’s likely hit single, The Evidence EP, took on many forms before finally reaching its current state. It also started a full point higher and included more glowing praise; realizing just how much like Booka Shade “Smart Cats Vs Dumb Dogs” sounds helped me put it into perspective. Still (and for that reason), I can imagine quite a few dance floors going mental for its strong Get Physicalized hook.
Also, Holger Czukay recently announced (ok, earlier this month) release dates for some choice rereleases: Movies, Clash, and Time & Tide will reach shelves June 15th.
