MUSIC! Transvestite Fistfight by SFC’s Blood Eagle is out on Beatport Now!

As a huge supporter of local music here in Orlando, I always take the time to listen check out other local artists in the area. Blood Eagle is this amazingly talented duo that I personally feel, like many artists here in town, are immensely under-rated. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Blood Eagle is this duo, Ivar The-Boneless and Lucy Vardøgr from Orlando, Florida who formed in 2009 out of mutual love for synthesizers, grindcore and obscure dance music. Every time I check out one of their sets, which is pretty often, I get the aural pleasure of listening to the dirtiest, filthiest, most insanely heavy music, that ISN’T dubstep. It’s insanely refreshing, because I feel there’s this huge misconception that you can’t go hard unless you play dubstep, and I feel Blood Eagle crushes that misconception and leaves people wanting more (don’t get me wrong, I enjoy dubstep, but it’s always nice to step outside of the box). One of the things I enjoy about Blood Eagle and their sets is that there’s this heaviness to their music, and yet, it’s so danceable. You can rage out with your friends, or you can shake your ass, either way it’s always a kick ass time.

As a music lover, one of the most fascinating things about music is watching how an artist’s DJ sets and their original productions match on the same level of intensity or energy. Once I heard “Transvestite Fistfight” it just screamed Blood Eagle to me, and I knew they were well on their way to creating a signature sound. The song’s title is quite fitting, the song has this crazy build and then, when it drops, it’s like you’re being punched in the face with lasers and these crazy and unique synths that I can only assume are coming from a badass transvestite who doesn’t take shit from nobody! I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this track and I always notice something different each and every time I hear it, needless to say it never gets old.

If you’re pulling a Walking Dead and awakening from a coma, and have no idea what the hell I’m talking about, educate yourself:

Need to see it in action? Here’s “Transvestite Fistfight” being played at where else but the renowned Takeovr:

I have witnessed time and time again, people lose their shit to this track and I HAD to have it. I begged and prodded to snag a copy of this song, with no such luck, I was told I had to wait until it was released to the masses. After what felt like years of waiting for this song to be released, the time has come:

Mähtrasher Records (Stuttgart, Germany) has just released the “Harvester” EP. I’m not sure if German Wheaties are served with a dose of “We like shit heavy” but the whole compilation is an absolute rage-fest from start to finish. #5 on this insanely heavy compilation, none other than Orlando’s own Blood Eagle’s “Transvestite Fistfight” So what the hell you waiting for?

>Oh the link to purchase to this amazing track?

Well, you can buy “Transvestite Fistfight” individually here:

OR you can check out and purchase the entire compilation here:

http://www.beatport.com/release/harvester/870825

Already, “Transvestite Fistfight” has garnered support from: Gtronic, aUtOdiDakT, Distrakt, Sawgood, Hanuman Tribe, Killagraham, DallasK, Bankai, Stereoliez, David Heartbreak, Street Lurkin, Devin Martin, Heavygrinder, Defep, Henry Fong, Cahill, & SlaminA. Fuck Yesss (Le Castle Vania & Street Lurkin’s residential party in ATL) even included the track in their March 2012 recap video:

As people begin to discover who Blood Eagle is, and they hear the sounds of “Transvestite Fistfight” I can only see this list continue to grow.

Feening for some more Blood Eagle action? Well you’re in luck, this Thursday, all of the Smile for Camera artists, which so happens to include Blood Eagle, will be “Taking Ovr” (see what we did there?) Ignition at Firestone.

Consider this a pre-game to the pool party in Miami. Be sure to come to the event and check out Blood Eagle drop “Transvestite Fistfight,” you can thank me for the aural orgasm later ;) Check out the event invite here:

News! Pacha NYC and Mixmag present MIXMAG IN MIAMI!

Everyone that’s ever experienced the week of festivities surrounding Ultra and WMC agrees: there’s always just SO MUCH good stuff happening and it’s impossible to see it all. Typically novice WMC-goers will try to cram in as many parties as they can, flitting from one to the other, stacking wristbands to the elbow, and end up totally waxed by day 3. Those who have been a few years in a row, however, know the score. Pace yourself, become well-informed, pick winners, and plan accordingly.

That being said, we’re going to help you out with that. Obviously the event on our minds here at SFC is our debut WMC pool party at The Carlton Hotel all day Saturday over on South Beach. But, there’s a few others you need to make sure you get to. First and foremost, check out the legendary Pacha NYC + Mixmag party at the Ice Palace West (formerly Karu & Y Ultralounge) in downtown Miami on Friday. It goes from 10pm to 6am, so if you’re hitting up Ultra it’ll be a perfect afterparty. The list of DJs for the party, like a lot of WMC parties, seems to be growing a little each day and is literally starting to bust at the seems. The big dogs on the bill are a Pendulum DJ Set (So basically Knife Party), Chase and Status, Steve Aoki, and JUST ADDED…..FLUX PAVILION! What might be more impressive though, is the ocean of talent booked right under them. Yolanda Be Cool, Riva Starr, Jesse Rose, Designer Drugs, Heartbreak, Sabo, Sazoon Booya, ETC!ETC!, and Jen Lasher (to name a few) each have enough juice to carry an entire night on their own, yet here there are stacked to the roof! On a more personal note, a few of the names on the flyer might seem a little extra familiar as well. That’s because as of right now, Bigmakk, somejerk, and Ma-LESS have been added to the party! HUGE! SFC’s artists are poised to make a major impression in the dance world with the number of events being played at conference this year, if they havent already with their original tracks and remixes.

Obviously there are more parties to talk about, but I don’t want to overwhelm you. It can get a little over-the-top trying to digest the information when it’s all splattered out at once, so consider this part one in a series of informative party posts pre-WMC. More to come, stay tuned party people…

News! The SFC WMC 2012 MEGAlist of Events

Miami Music Week Ultra Week events

Its that time of the year again, and this time, like every time before, its better than ever. This year, there is no annoying separation of church and state-esque proportions dividing the Miami Music Week and the Winter Music Conference. No, this year, the two have learned from their mistakes, picked up their britches and put things right back where they belong, where everything takes place at the same time and you’re left to freak out and search for cloning centers. The WMC has expanded this time around to take on a couple more days and lasts from March 16 until March 25th, with satellite events already littering my calendar.

For us, the Big Focus this year is on Smile for Camera’s first official WMC Event. Sure, maybe you were privvy to rock a pre-party or post party with us in the past, but this time were going legit. We have a killer line up to keep you jamming well into the night, including the only WMC performance from Moombah Master Munchi. You can read more about that here.

As always, I’ve gone ahead given up on getting any work done at work over the last few days to compile for you the ultimate resource of things to do. As always, I have left out Ultra, because its Ultra, you’re not living in a rock, and tickets are a million dollars anyways.

As always we’ll be adding more events as they pop up, so please leave me your suggestions for inclusions in comments or email your party listing to (or notify me of broken links): mgap@smileforcamera.com.

And so we begin:

News! All your Beatports and Nightclubs are belong to us! Big Week for SFC!

Goooooooood morning! It’s been one week since SFC’s first official release on Beatport (It’s Sonic by Nicademass and Joey Paranoia). The track debuted at number 70 on the electro house release charts, and has steadily worked it’s way up to 63 over the course of 7 days, which wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the awesomeness of peeps like you, so thanks! We felt we should follow it up with yet another tune that’s been slaying our regular digs of Takeovr, Fuk’d, and every other party we’ve played: Nothing Left. If you don’t know about this one, now you know. But don’t take our word for it, check the video that our friends over at Film Crush Media put together from footage of it dropping at the Zeds Dead show last year! This one’s got dub-anthem-girl-singalong written all over it! Big props to Joey and Nick for yet another winner. It’s out on on Beatport TODAY so go scoop it up now, and get your ass to Takeovr tonight to hear if go down in the live.
Joey Paranoia & Nicademass – Nothing Left (BEATPORT LINK)

Also ticking the hyphymeter this week, Smile For Camera as a whole will be marching into Firestone Live and ‘taking ovr’ the weekly Thursday party of Ignition here in Orlando for one special night, March 15th. Ignition, although still young in party years (because it’s only actually 2 months old), has already made a name for itself by corralling a HUGE number of talented DJs (many of whom already reside on the SFC label) into one place at one time. As anyone from the event organization side of things will tell you, it’s no easy feat. We make things a bit easier on them this week by bringing in our entire artist roster. Whew! Now they’ll have time to worry about more pressing issues, like our drink tickets! ;) Also, this event will serve as a warm-up and trial run for the convergence of all our artists down in Miami at our pool party, which is just days away at this point! Be sure to get there early for the free parking on the street!

Music! Smile For Camera’s FIRST Beatport Release is HERE, and IT’S SONIC!

Drum roll please……

Smile For Camera is proud to present It’s Sonic by Nicademass and Joey Paranoia as its premier release into the Beatport cosmos! This track’s been dropped, to epic reactions, several times recently by it’s creators. If you’re in regular attendance at any SFC event, you’ve probably been on the receiving end of it’s firepower. This is a big step for SFC, and comes in direct prelude to the two massive parties we’re about to bomb your heads with (Kalcyum and The WMC Pool Party). Go check out the Beatport page, purchase it if you can, and even pass the link along to friends with good music taste. Also, stay trained on this spot, and Beatport, for future SFC releases. We promise you won’t be waiting long… ;)

SFC001 ON BEATPORT!!!

News! SFC’s got the MUNCHIs in Miami! Exclusive WMC Performance!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s bomb-droppin’ time. You may already know that Smile For Camera, Social Overflow, and Chillin Music are presenting SFC:WMC:MIA:2012 @ The Carlton Hotel Pool in South Beach on Saturday March 24th. The party’s been in the works for a couple months already, and we at SFC have secured not only a spot for every artist on our roster, but also enough bass from our friends at PTE to blow the water out of the pool.

What you may not know, however, is that the world’s most in-demand and sought-after Moombahton DJ/producer, MUNCHI, will be playing his one and only WMC set there! Notoriously low-key, and considered by many promoters to be “ungettable”, MUNCHI might be the Banksy of Dance Music.

News & Music! Revolvr cocked, locked, ready to rock tonight @ Fuk’d!

Tonight Las Vegas resident Revolvr shoots us all in the face. His ammunition? Ill-matic tracks. His weapon? The VAiN soundsystem. The chart-topping banger-maker comes to town just a month before Miami Music Week/MWC, assuring a sort of ‘preview’ set for the upcoming festivities. I tried to secure an interview with the man, but a busy touring schedule and constant work on upcoming projects for Bazooka Records and Bugeyed have rendered him inaccessable. Luckily for us, there’s this fancy schmancy Beatport interview, which i will kindly reprint for you here:

B: Can you tell us a little about your background? Where did you grow up, and where are you based now?

R: There have been a few chapters so far. I was born in Queens, New York, where I spent my childhood. We moved to San Francisco, where I spent my teenage years, and then I spent my formative years in San Diego. And now, the next chapter has brought me Las Vegas. Oh boy…

B: How did you get started DJing and making music?

R: There was always something about electronic music that intrigued me. In high school, while other kids were listening to the radio, I was listening to groups like The Prodigy, Massive Attack, Crystal Method, Orbital, and more. In high school I became good friends with a couple of older peers who were big DJs in the underground scene. I was instantly hooked and immediately purchased my first pair of amateur belt-drive turntables. I never looked back.

B: How would you describe the music that you make?

R: Melodic, energetic and moving. I have influences across the entire spectrum, and I feel like I’ve digested the most compelling parts from each one and molded them into my own structure. No matter what the style may be, there’s always a moving element behind the track. I put a lot of my soul into my music so that the energy just spills out of the speakers and into the crowd. Not only do I want to make people move, I want to give them an experience they can remember.

B: Do you DJ, play live, or both? How would you describe your sets?

R: I DJ, but I have some live performance tricks up my sleeve for the future. My sets are very uplifting and moving, and I like to pull off a lot of tricks and use the FX. The crowd is there to dance, and I’m going to bring it to them. I love performing, and I really get into what I’m doing. I think because I’m having so much fun when I play, it’s contagious, and I love it when the crowd feels that energy.

B: Did you have any mentors when you were starting out? Who helped you get established?

R: I attended school for a bit, which helped guide me and get the gears turning. After that, all I did was geek out and learn everything myself. The most important thing to remember is that NO ONE alone is going to teach you, you truly have to discover for yourself. I will always try my best to help guide and support people with advice and tips, but ultimately, it’s your dedication to the art that will move you forward.

B: When did you first feel that you had discovered your own sound?

R: I did a remix track last year for Scotty Boy & DJ Red called “4am in Vegas,” which was released under my real name (Touvan) before I changed my artist name to Revolvr. I had recently returned from Burning Man, which really opened my mind, and just put a feeling into laying out this track. That was a huge breakthrough for me, especially seeing the way that it made people move. After that, I became Revolvr, and even my close friends told me, “You’ve found yourself.”

B: How do you explain your music to your family members?

R: “DO NOT play this at church. Especially ‘Warface.’”

B: Are you the type of musician who knows what kind of track you want to write before you sit down to make it, or do you create music more from a process of experimentation, trial and error?

R: All of the above. Sometimes, it just comes to me, and I have to write it down. The other night, a song and words came to me as I was going to bed, and I had to jump out of bed and immediately write it down. Other times, I just start with a blank canvas, close my eyes and let go. Sometimes I’ll scrap something I worked on for days because it doesn’t feel right and will re-write the entire thing several times before I’m satisfied with it. The creative process varies for me; sometimes it depends on where I am with my life, where my head is at.

B: When you sit down to make a track, what’s the first thing you typically do? How long does a track typically take you to make?

R: I start with a concept, the “meat” of the track, which typically is the break and the drop, because those are parts of the track that speak to you. It’s usually a 30-40 second loop. Then, when I feel I’ve got what I want, I unfold the rest and work on the details. As far as how long it takes, it really depends on so many things. If I’m trying to make something really dynamic and technical I’ll dedicate hours to getting one loop just right. Other times, I’ll bang out a track in 48 hours.

B: Where do you record?

R: I have a dedicated studio. I do also have my laptop and portable keyboard for concepts when I travel. The concept of “Beats Inside My Head” was actually made on a plane on my way back from a gig. Even though I can do a lot on the road, I like having my dedicated studio to come home to, so I can put my focus where it needs to be.

B: Do you currently have a favorite piece of gear or software?

R: [Moog] Little Phatty. I’m not very heavy into hardware, but there’s something about that analog sound that makes you clench your teeth. In terms of software, I like to use Reason as a rewire to make my sounds. It’s got such great sound quality and it’s limitless to what you can do with it.

B: Are you a morning person or night owl?

R: I’m a total night owl. But I wake up quite early. So maybe I just think sleep is overrated.

B: Which record do you wish you had made?

R: Hmm, probably any of the stuff in Michael Jackson’s early legendary albums. You just can’t replicate or pull that off these days. You can’t. If I tried, I would just get laughed at.

B: If a wrecking ball was headed for your house, which *one* record would you rescue before it hit?

R: Reflekt – ”Need To Feel Loved.” It’s timeless and perfect, gets me every time. And it’s almost impossible to find a high quality digital version of it these days.

B: When you’re not listening to electronic music, what do you listen to?

R: Pretty much everything else, from rock to classical music. It’s a great way to cleanse your palette. No one really knows this, but I do a little bit of cinematic soundtrack scores, and I love it because it really opens my mind to new ideas.

B: When you’re not making or playing music, what’s your preferred pastime?

R: Playing Xbox live. Either Halo or Call of Duty Black Ops. Gamertag “RevolvrMusic.” Bring it!

B: If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing with your life?

R: Figuring out another way to travel the world!

There you have it! See you all at Fuk’d tonight! Joey Paranoia and Nicademass are holding down the main room until Revolver steps up to bat, and the mighty Moon Baton room will be captained once again by Dr. Khan and Ma-LESS! Whooooooooo!
