See you there!!! Tell us if you are coming!!
Self taught and self-produced, the 3 members of the Brooklyn electro-dance band TAYISHA BUSAY have created a place for themselves in the music scene where they’ve been every bit as bold and relentless as they’ve wanted to be. Their debut EP in 2010, “Shock-Woo!” gained them a cult following with their single “WTF You Doin’ in My Mouth”, as well as a hefty nod from the LGBTQ community. Having toured with MEN (JD Samson of Le Tigre) and shared the stage with artists such as Andrew W.K., they display a grand expertise of showmanship with their use of choreographed dancing, hand-crafted props, home-made lighting effects, and always tons of glitter and confetti. TAYISHA BUSAY has toured the east coast and Canada, spreading their message of positive encouragement and over-the-top “do it because you want to” attitude, complete with high kicks, big-synth sounds, and enticing dance-floor beats that have won over club-goers and indie-rockers alike. Early in their career, and much before Lady Gaga or Ke$ha hit the scene, they earned a reputation for toting copious amounts of glitter, as seen in their first music video in which they drink and puke the sparkly substance. Their videos have been featured in homepage spots on websites such as Gawker.com and the popular queer network, Logo.TV. Their newest release, “Focus/Virus” is their first full length album and will be released in Autumn of 2011.

Take a listen to this fresh new mix from DJ Rizzla released exclusively for DISCOBELLE earlier this week. Don’t miss him live in Hartford on October 1st at Mad Dawg’s . Here’s what Discobelle has to say about the mix!
Big, big things are in the works from Rizzla, who provided us with an unbelievably hot mix to start the week. Kicking off with what sounds like a dial up internet connection that you might hear dissonantly playing in the background of a David Lynch movie, things only get more frenetic from there.
Amidst the chaos, you can find a plentiful helping of Ha beats influenced by everything from New Orleans bounce to apocalyptic military reincarnations of the classic Masters At Work “HA Dance” track, each providing enough of a variation on the original theme to sound jarringly different every time.
There are also plentiful original productions from Rizzla here, further showcasing a dancefloor versatility that’s positioned itself somewhere hazily in between house, intensely homoerotic rave, techno, garage, bass, soca, dancehall and vogue, all mixed with maybe a little side of scathing political critique. I mean, when you name a track “Battyboy bleeding in the dark”, there’s gotta be some politics at work. Regardless of how you choose to characterize it, some of these gems may be finding a home on a certain fantastic soon-to-be-revealed label later on this year.
As if that’s not enough, the mix is also stuffed to the seams with exclusives from Mikeq, Dubbel Dutch, Kingdom and previously featured dance music disemboweler blk.adonis. Grab it now, you won’t regret it.

Remember soulwax? They’re fun, right?
Anyhow, they just started a new project called radio soulwax which is this weird mix of music and trippy visuals and it’s a pretty decent way to kill some time on a lazy Sunday evening. The programming seems to be pretty diverse so check it out and find something that moves you or something, I don’t know, shut up.
Here’s what soulwax themselves has to say about it:
Ok, so it’s a radio station, but not as you know it. For now, it’s a growing collection of 24 one hour-long mixes with visuals that we are sharing with you for free, and hopefully it will become a platform for many more things to come. We call them mixes, but in reality they are more like musical films based on the record sleeves.
Every hour has a different musical and visual theme (always based on the covers), to eventually make for a varied day-long radio schedule that will remain online in a rotated and continuous loop.
Over the next few months we will be adding a new show every week, culminating in a 24-hour musical and visual ‘experience’. Sorry, we couldn’t think of a better word than experience.
We have no idea how you will experience this, though, whether it will be too intense or too much to take in, or perhaps not enough. All we know is that we love it and had to do it, even though everyone called us crazy.
We spent ages trying to get everything to sound, look and feel right. We hope you appreciate this labour of love as it has taken a ridiculous amount of work.
The first time I ever saw D. Gookin he was opening up for Neon Indian at the Wadsworth and to be completely honest I was a little less than impressed. The full drum kit as well as the awful acoustics of the atrium were enough to completely drown out the singing and backing track. Since then the man has come a long way. Last night he sounded fantastic at Sully’s and even though the crowd was mostly congregating on the other end of the bar he still managed to command the stage and lay down some pretty hilarious banter at the people listening. Go check out this man’s Bandcamp page and throw a few dollars his way. He more than deserves it.
