Ladies and gentlemen…Sonic Landscapes and Jollyboy Entertainment hosted the first Party Function of the Year this past Saturday [10.19.13], the third in our Party Function series. On an uneven, subterranean dance floor, steady waves of music-lovers bounced and gyrated until the wee hours of the morning. HARIM and NICO G of the LQE collective traded back and forth with steamy sets ranging from soulful minimal to steamy deep house, with some techno and R&B thrown in. It was a great way to kick off this year’s installments in this evolving music series.
If you would like to hear the music played by these two incredible DJs at the party, you can download their sets here.

“Hasta la Mañana Siempre”
On [5.24.13] Sonic Landscapes and friends convened a second Party Function. Throughout the night three fantastic friends of the Sonic Landscapes mission [HARIM, Erin_FM, and Haarschnitt] spun some incredible dance music while the crowd bounced, sweat, and disrobed beneath a series of surreal projections. After a particularly saucy opening set by HARIM–who was also hosting the party at his incredible apartment perched atop the gorge–Erin_FM played a fat set of his signature brand of upbeat house music, followed by a steamy selection of tracks by Haarschnitt. HARIM returned to the stand to finish the night off, greeting the wee hours of the morning with some more energetic dance music. Sonic Landscapes thanks these radical DJs and all those who helped make the night possible.
All three live sets were recorded on site, and can be heard below, and downloaded here:

A one hour mix that dances with a few house tracks, has a conversation about the electoral college with some funky, gets a drink thrown in its face by glitch, tries to take home grime to no avail, uses a cheesy pick-up line with some experimental bass, and gets kicked out of the club by some hip-hop infused trap.

Sonic Landscapes and GTMMMM [known to many of you as one of the fly DJs who performed at our first Party Function back in October–you can hear that set here] are excited to announce that on 3.27.13 we will be dropping a four hour mega-mix that will be recorded live tomorrow evening.
GTMMMM writes of the mix:
I don’t know about you folks, but it’s been a long-ass winter for me, one a bit too full of melancholia, heartbreak, self-loathing/doubt, exhaustion, and all the other wonderful side-effects of the dark northern days. Which is not to say it’s all been bad either–as often as I’ve felt totally unable to get out of bed I’ve felt totally fucking charged, insane, inspired. And it’s not over yet. Even so, it’s about time for a change, a change I decided to soundtrack, a thaw.
So this Friday night, I’ll be recording a four-hour live set that’ll be a combination of DJing and live electronics totally running the gamut in terms of genre and feel. I’m modeling it loosely after the sorts of opening sets you might here at Berghain, my favorite club in Berlin, sets that start in the sludge of ambient and experimental music and an empty dance-floor and end with a thousand people sweating it out to cold, techno. This is a mix for getting ready, then getting psyched, then going out. A mix that I hope will surprise you. Enjoy the thaw.
People get ready, people get sweaty.
Here is a preview to the mix: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hw-2gD82_RY&list=PLD404C800E3C5D99D&index=2

Sonic Landscapes presents a one-hour mix to get you through this grim weather. Beginning with a seething remix of R.Kelly’s “I’m a Flirt” by Cyril Hahn, the mix moves into some bass-heavy house and tech-house to get the circulation going, then transitions to the twisted rave-scapes of DJ Stingray 313, Marcel Dettman, Kassem Mosse. Finally, we let you down easy with a jazzy “walk in the park” track by Kerri Chandler to remind you of greener pastures.

RUDEBOY IN THE CAPITAL
This week’s episode of Sonic Landscapes is brought to us by Phosphene, known to his comrades in Ithaca as Gabe Salvatierra. Phosphene, a talented DJ who I first heard spinning records a few weeks ago at a party, has curated a solid mix of some of his favorite tracks to share with us all. With this mix, Phosphene has created a soundtrack to a typical weekend night–full of energy, excitement, and the inevitable crash.
He writes of this mix:
“During the course of a typical Saturday night out, your mood and state of mind can fluctuate wildly. Your soundtrack to these different stages of the evening should follow appropriately. This mix seeks to take the listener from the start of the pregame all the way through to the wee hours of Sunday morning (and through my range of tastes at the moment as well). There’s some slower beat-driven jams from the West Coast to get you going, hip-hop infused bangers for when things really pick up, bouncier house when you just wanna dance, deeper grooves for after hours, and a few slow burners at the end when things are winding down and you’re on the pull.”
