In July 2010, at age 42, Australian Pop Singer, (K)ylie (M)inogue will release her 11th(!) studio album, Aphrodite.
Personally, Kylie is sort of a guilty pleasure for theGlitoris—- someone that can only be played when we’re in a certain mood (as goes with all music) but some really awesome tracks on here like; “Cupid Boy” (featured above), “Closer”, “Illusion”, “Put Your Hands Up”, & “Too Much”really live up to the Kylie Pop Empire.
It’s not too surprising— considering major album producer Stuart Price (Princess Superstar, Madonna, Scissor Sisters, New Order, The Killers) produced about 10 of the tracks and leaving 1 for Calvin Harris to produce.
Other notable contributors include, Jake Shears and Babydaddy of Scissor Sisters. This album, Aphrodite, does NOT feature any ballads at all.
Download the above featured track, “Cupid Boy”, here.
BUY Kylie’s Album, Aphrodite, in Early July.
With the help of Ra Ra Riot’s Andrew Maury— Washington, D.C. band, DETOX RETOX, is releasing “Movement”, an EP with a collection of six perfect summer songs. The group is composed of Michael Parker (Vocals), Nate Frey (Synth), Kevin Glass (Bass), & Kabir Khanna (Drums). Their EP, “MOVEMENT” comes out Tuesday, June 15th. Download one of my favorite tracks, “Caroline”, here.
Philidelphia based DJ, Diplo - released a brand new track he produced for Synth/dance trio Hyper Crush.
The group comprised of, Donny Fontaine, Preston Moronie, and Holly Valentine is based out of Los Angeles, California.
Typically, the group has a very synth 80’s sound—- on their newest ejaculation, they take their electro-sound to a whole NEW diplo-Dimension.
Their track, “Ayo,” is a chunky booty-shaking dancefloor thriller that will fire up your hemroidz and relax your cellulite all at the same time.
Hyper Crush plays the Lizard Lounge in Dallas Texas, June 18th, check out their Space for more tour dates. DOWNLOAD THIS TRACK, here.

It’s funny that The Artist sings about this new song being a “futuristical sound”….. he needs to hear BIG BOI’s new album. THAT SHIT is Futurisitcal. Download, “HOT SUMMER” here, and clap ya ass to it by the pool. Look for Prince’s new album, tentatively entitled, “Androgynine”.
#MM Feels like yesterday when London Based band CRYSTAL FIGHTERS headlined ONE of my SXSW parties with Radarmaker and BIGSTEREO Records at Barbarella. When I spoke with the guys in March, they were telling me about their debut album they’d JUST recorded before flying into Austin. I am extremely excited for them to finally have a full length record out, instead of their usual Kitsune Single here and there. After a few months of mastering, the boys (and sometimes girls) of CRYSTAL FIGHTERS have released their FIRST single from said album. Download the track “In the Summer”, here. Look out for their Summer Debut Album! P.S. Rare Magazine announced Barbarella as the #1 Best place to dance in Austin! Congratulations Barbz! Must feel good, being the new guy in town. Much <3 from theGlitoris!
