Just wanted to send you some brand new music from the French band Adam Kesher (nope, it’s not one guy). This crew is produced by Dave One (Chromeo) with additional mixing from Zdar, A-Trak and Pierrick Devin
The band is dropping the “Gravy Train” EP on October 4 and I‘d like to offer you a look at the band’s new video plus a download of the “Fortune Remix.”
“Gravy Train (Fortune Remix)”
To keep you in the loop we’re looking to release the “Attraction EP” in December and it will feature remixes from Nacho Lovers, Jacques Renault and more. We then look forward to releasing the new full length album in the US early in 2011 with a small tour around the SXSW season.

Epic re-envisioning of North American drum and bass don Dieselboy’s seminal drum and bass anthem “N.V.D.” (first drum and bass track to chart on Billboard) world renowned indie electro producers Le Castle Vania (Dylan Elland of Atlanta) and Computer Club (Mike Diasio, Atlanta). Relooping critical elements of the original and re- energizing them with grinding distorted disco punk, Le Castle Vania and Computer Club reinvent “Invid” as a churning, funky, dark and dirty electro party banger.
Irresistibly frenetic and completely out of control.

Danko Jones has introduced the second in the soon to be music video trilogy from the album Below the Belt. The new highly-stylized, film-like music video noir for the track “Had Enough” stars Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid), comedian Don Jamieson (That Metal Show/VH1) and is the prequel to “Full of Regret.” Described as “one-part ‘Sabotage,’ one-part Guy Ritchie, one-part Quentin Tarantino,” by MTV Buzzworthy “Full
of Regret” starred actor Elijah Wood and actress Selma Blair as assassins with cameo roles by Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) and Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Stooges). “Had Enough” will also feature actor Frank Drank (who also stars in the upcoming Seth Rogen movie “The Green Hornet”), reprising his role as Lemmy’s henchman. View an exclusive behind-the-scenes video here:
In “Had Enough,” a “mad scientist” (portrayed by Macchio) has found a way to clone himself and the band of Danko Jones is ordered off to deal with it. Their failure is ultimately what leads henchmen Frank and Lemmy to send Elijah and Selma after them in “Full of Regret.” Directed once again by the Diamond Brothers and shot on location in New York (Yonkers and Brooklyn) the full video will be available next week! “Full of Regret” has been on the Canadian BDS Rock Radio Charts for 26 weeks, 16 of them in the Top 10 (peaking at #5). It is likely to end the year as one of the most played tracks at Rock Radio with 10,000 spins to date and is also featured in EA Games NHL 11. Danko Jones will be performing at the season opener between The Sharks and The Blue Jackets in Stockholm Sweden on October 9th.
Rony Seikaly – former NBA and current DJ and Production Superstar announces his debut artist album: Subliminal Essentials Presents: House Calls by Rony Seikaly out on Subliminal Records October 19, 2010. This digital-only release will be available on Beatport, Traxsource, iTunes and all other digital download outlets. This will be the first in a series of releases from Seiklay on the venerable independent label.
After years of travelling the globe on the international DJ circuit, the Lebanese-born star, who made US his home on the court with the Miami Heat, now makes his home behind the turntables. With a thumping rhythm that carries throughout Seikaly takes you on a journey from the clubs of Ibiza to Miami, London, Paris, NYC and beyond. This is dance music with global influence. This is Rony’s dance music; in your ears, in your house.
Seikaly who earned the nickname “The Spin Doctor” while playing with the Miami Heat – will be bringing his signature brand of house music on the road with the House Calls US Tour (full dates TBA), launching October 23rd at LIV in Seiklay’s adopted home city Miami.
Seikaly released his first single “Come With Me” on August 3, 2010 which reached the House Top 40 on Beatport. Shortly after that he followed-up with a track titled “Let You Go” which released on September 9, 2010. Originally titled “Mila’s Theme” it plays as a tribute to his daughter. Both tracks are climbing the electronic charts and rocking dancefloors across the globe.
Speaking knowledgeably about various musical eras, Seikaly has an inherent understanding for the music that has inspired him and influenced his unique style. Dubbed “Rony Style” by such electronic music heavyweights Morillo, Seikaly himself loosely defines it as “happy underground.”
Seikaly himself is possibly the one having the most fun in any nightclub. His enjoyment in playing music and seeing the crowd’s reaction is a huge part of the experience. Although Seikaly has been a long time partner in numerous bars, lounges, and clubs around the Miami area (Bar None, Mynt, Mokai, Club Wall at the W Hotel), his talents go far beyond that locality. LIV (Miami), Spybar (Chicago), Pacha (NYC),Playhouse (LA), Queen (Paris), and Amnesia (Ibiza) are a few spots that have experienced Seikaly’s sought-after inimitable style.
