Noise In Brief, Sept. 16: Scottie B’s Baltimore, Barn Aid, Record Store Love

Here’s a new mix from soon-to-be ex-Baltimorean Dave Nada on Dissonance radio in Washington D.C.–Diplo-style world-dance stuff, judging by the tracklist. Barn Aid, a benefit festival of quality local talent such as Wye Oak and the Celebration side-project Birdland, has been moved from Springfield Farms in Sparks to the Golden West, and from Sunday...

Listen: New Scottie B track with Wale, “Elevators”

| Image by Good Bully Wale started out rhyming to Washington D.C.’s go-go rhythms, so it shouldn’t be a big surprise to hear him alongside a bare-bones, old-school Baltimore club track from old-school master Scottie B. Scottie B – Elevators (feat. Wale) – 320 kbps by Unruly Productions

My Crew Be Unruly 2: Words and Photos

Photos by Josh Sisk With the Artscape DJ Culture stage relegated to some Wind-Up Space shows last Friday and Saturday night—a kind of cruel and confusing shift, given that July is the one year anniversary of K-Swift’s death and club’s massive global growth over the past year—My Crew Be Unruly 2, the second edition...

The Club Beat: The Year in Baltimore Club

King Tutt 2008 was a memorable and important year in the history of Baltimore club music, but not entirely in a good way. The shocking death of club’s most popular DJ, Khia “K-Swift” Edgerton, cast a dark shadow over the second half of the year, and it feels like things still haven’t returned to...

“Raise Your Hands if You Got $20 In Your Pocket”: Artscape, My Crew Be Unruly party, DJ Culture Stage, and Paradox, July 18

www.joshsisk.com Scottie B and K-Swift A funny thing about Baltimore club music is that you can listen to it almost endlessly and not get sick of it. By all rights you should–it’s technically repetitive as all hell, and there seems to be a mathematical law that demands that over the course of three DJs,...

SXSW: Sorry We Missed Your Band

| Image by joshsisk.com In principle, the South by Southwest festival is as much a trade show as New York’s massive CMJ Music Marathon, which sort of made us throw up in our mouths a little last fall. The difference is that SXSW is cloaked in the best/biggest party any lover of music, Tex-Mex...

Steaming Wolf Penis Not Playing SXSW? . . . But Baltimore Reps It Hard
