I just saw this from my uncle. My cousin Josh in the Philippines entered a modeling competition for Axe body spray. His pimpness has already landed him in the top 10, but seriously... His submission totally needs to take him to the top. He's already got over 200 votes and the deadline is actually tomorrow 8:59 AM, March 31 in the U.S. (edit: time was extended since original post) That's what I get for lagging on checking my e-mail =X

Here's his photo. Compare it to the other people leading the contest. He clearly deserves to win ;-)


So here's the voting process.

VOTING PROCEDURE
1. Click on this link: http://www.axe.com.ph/index2.php?PhotoID=2732
2. Click on VOTE.

I have been hearing for years that Goa Gil is a total legend and that he would play a set that would blow my mind. Now, granted, I was totally sober the whole night, but even then I was kinda bored. I liked some tracks. It was okay and I danced a good amount since there's a lot of fun stuff in the high end, but there are plenty of other psy DJs that I think I'd rather hear.

I wanted to explain to my roommate what he sounded like, so I found Gil's latest album online and realized that it was a micrcosm of his set. I'd say that when we arrived around 1 am, he was around 145 - 150 bpm and that by sunrise, he probably ended at 180 bpm.

So here is a link to his latest album.
http://www.avatar-music.com/releases/tracks/wb/mywimpy_wb.html

Basically, stretch out the development of this album over 12 hours and that was kind of what my experience was like. Now, I had previously heard from a few people that when he plays, people ar practically possessed on the dancefloor but I saw nothing like that.

So I've got some questions for my LJ friends.

1) If you have seen Gil before, is the sound you remember from Gil that totally blew your mind?
2) If you haven't heard Gil before but love psytrance, is this some of the best psy you've heard?

For the record, as far as this style of psy goes, I think I've been hearing it for years out of the San Diego psy scene (especially at the parties on Bill Sikes' ranch and DJs like Greenman...)

Either my ear has changed and I've become far too trendy and funky, or maybe it just bored me because I hear it from the San Diego psy scene already and I kind of like those guys more.

Well, re: the gil album, except it gets kind of interesting around the track "Reality Hackers" but he didn't play stuff like that until sunrise... and by interesting, I mean good for hardcore, not for psy.

So there are 2 types of promoters in this world. Responsible Promoters and Irresponsible Promoters. As it turns out, some Irresponsible Promoters organized an event at the SAME location as our HOMECOMING event was supposed to be on the night before our event. It brought down the wrath of the local officials and effectively shut the space completely down.

We scrambled and ran around frantically trying to obtain another location where we could give you the event that we promised you... and we just couldn't find one. We love our family and don't ever want them to spend their hard earned cash on a half-assed party. As such, we are going to have to cancel HOMECOMING.

We HATE to do this. This sort of this is right up there on the list of things that we as organizers NEVER want to have to do. However, we owe it to you to throw the absolute best event that we can. Something that exceeds your expectations.

ALL PRESALES WILL BE REFUNDED.

Fear not! For all of you decom party peeps, the folks at Space Island and Trinity are throwing an afterparty.
http://www.spaceisland.org

They have a killer lineup and a great location.

We hope this reaches you in time to plan your night. Please accept our most humble apologies. Had this been within our control, things would have gone differently.

As a disclaimer to everyone, this is going to be waaaay costumey and Burner-Hippie so be aware.

Elysium Midsummer FestivalCollapse )
So this year, I am excited to finally be going to Elysium and I'll be playing downtempo during the day. Those of you who know me well or have known me throughout college know that I have a very deep love of downtempo and now I get to share that love with many of you. For you music heads, I'm lettting you know right now that I love stuff off of FatCat, Warp, Planet-Mu, etc... Expect to hear anything from Sigur Ros to Plaid... Prefuse 73 to Boards of Canada... Mum to Lamb... Bjork to Bluetech... I frequently attend IDM events in Los Angeles, listen to Morning Becomes Eclectic regularly, and generally just love to chill out.

Well, now you know what to expect from me. Hope to see you at Elysium!

I would've had more photos but Krystal and Diane stole my camera and took a lot of NSFW photos for the weekend ;-)
