GIG: Bay Area Burn

August 24th, 2010 by Chris

Bay Area Burn

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.


MIX: All Wet

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.

MIX: Macerated

July 23rd, 2009 by Chris

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.
