middle: Mike Dextro
Here I am with LIGHTING BOLT’s second CD in the background. It’s distracting me from this review so I just turned it off. I went to Pianos on the lower east side of Manhattan and the music in the upper lounge embraced me. It was “Pornography” night, last wednesday, june 27th. OLE was spinning mash-ups and MIKE DEXTRO joined him for some 909 rave stuff. It was good laptop DJing. No “tan-man-with-spikey-hair” shit at all really:) Mike dropped a familiar Bucketheads (Kenny Dope Gonzales) house track, and also the JUSTICE remix of Daft Punk’s “human after all.” Mike makes his own tracks that you can listen to HERE. Next up after Mike was DJ DUCKCOMB spinning only vinyl. He spun some minimal disco that I hadn’t heard before plus some mainstream disco classics. Everyone listen to BANGKOK IMPACT on Holland’s BUNKER RECORDS. His sound quality is deep. Mike Dextro has his own parties (MAGAZINE MAGAZINE, HEROINE CHIC) and DJ Duckcomb has his SHAREGROOVE events with Shakewell.
