They have recently made some material of their own under the artist name Miroir. The debut EP So Fewer Particles Scatter is out on Holographic People. Favorite track is Night Sky - a cool tune with some nice 80s italo sounds.

Two years today since the king of dance music passed away. Here's a batch of MJ mash-ups, re-edits, covers and remixes. Also, don't miss the Axel F Ascension of MJ event tonight at Liv on U and 11th.


I Specialize in Love is the title of a 1982 club banger performed by Sharon Brown. Today is her birthday! What better occasion to bring out this classic disco stomper.

The Brown song is the main sample for the Drop Out Orchestra tune Baby Come Home. Another club banger for sure.


The Brown tune given a makeover by Munga. Lovin it!

The Jacques Renault remix of the latest Breakbot track Fantasy is pretty nice and comes with a way cool video featuring some vintage footage. Roller-boogie!

Here's the video to the original. The guy with the beard is Thibaut Berland aka Breakbot. The story is a bit similar to the debut video of Norwegian 80s pop band A-ha. A bit cheesy, but a nice looking model!
