I write thee tonight with serious business… I KNOW all you cats are just gettin more and more excited for the Floor Models set coming up next weekend. That would be Saturday 10/23 in case ya forgot. The exact underground locale has not yet been announced but rest assured this is a real deal SF show.
This is a special one hosted by our buddies at SWAG. In fact, I heard that it’s a birthday party too… for SWAG! 2 years rocking our bass faces off. So get your pre-sale tickets while they last. It’ll set ya back $15. But whatever happens, don’t forget to bring your MASQUE to the LABYRINTH!!!
The Floor Models would like to thank SWAG for such a mind-blowing experience! And thanks to iownawesome for the recap video And just to give a little taste to our oh so loyal fanbase, here’s our set from the party!
Experiencing the Floor Models at this summer’s Yellow Brick may have destroyed your bass glands, but even for the most damaged, you should be in full recovery by now. So what next? More Floor Models action to ROCKIT of course!
We’ve partnered with one of SF’s baddest crews for this next one… SWAG! Emerging like a frickin’ phoenix from the ashes of the bay area party scene SWAG has in just one year built quite a rep for their insane underground parties. And always, always with a flare for FUN They’re next project is the BAY AREA BURN, which is just as it sounds: a kick-ass local alternative to Burning Man!
So if you can’t make the trek out to the playa, or simply demand to see the Floor Models, you can rock it Labor Day weekend with us at a spectacular 3-day camp-out. More info can be consumed on Facebook and direct from Swag. And tickets? They’re right here.
If you’re down with Swag’s takeover of the universe, be sure to join their Facebook group too (trust me, get in on their good side before world domination manifests!). Giving a lick… I mean like… to the Floor Models’ Facebook page would be totally rad too.
When you find a yellow brick road, there’s only one thing to do: follow it! And this Saturday June 5th it happens to lead to a night of sick beats courtesy of the ever-rad Oz Smoking Lounge. And, yes the Floor Models will be in full effect!
Come out and rep the Floor Models as we rock out the mezzanine. We drop at 10:45pm precise, so get there early! In the meantime, get your chill on at the Oz Smoking Lounge right around the corner on 22nd.
YEAH!!! Only a few days now until the Floor Models once again invade the desert. Still no gig at the show this year (funny, that) so instead we keep the tradition of a Coachella 2010 mix going! All the tracks involve someone associated with the show… somehow. So, get this joint lit on the road trip down to the show, and we’ll see ya in the Sahara
Living on the West Coast, weather-wise, usually ain’t no thang. But the last week was a soggy one. Nothing to do except throw down some dub. And techno. Yes, two of our favorite genres have been fused into a sublime one hour journey. Kinda like a PB&J at 130bpm. Dig in.
It’s no secret that the Floor Models enjoy their bevies. All sorts of bevies are enjoyed, but a few rise to the top: namely scotch and wine. This mix in front of you is dedicated to the latter. It debuted on the excellent wine blog saignée, run by our good friend (and fan!) Cory Cartwright. He is just finishing up an epic month of posts on the topic of natural wine. Dig deep and you may even find a few wine geek posts by yours truly.
Enough! Onto the music. Keeping with the vino theme, the concept for Macerated is the journey that grapes takes in the vat during fermentation. This process is called maceration and it’s where the magic happens, especially for natural wine. It is very dark in the vats, but also very active, so musically expect a healthy dose of dark techno sprinkled with new wave and ambient.
