And thus rounds out our list of DJs duking it out for $800 dollars in total grand prizes.
So, if you get a chance take a look over all the potential winners, losers, and everything in between. Furthermore , let us know what your picks are going to be for first prize, second, and third. Because nothing says building a community like a 7 plus DJ battle for drug, liquor,sex, and clothing money.


Can't get enough of this upbeat, swirling electro frenziness in Japan right now. Talk about doin it right.

I'm not a huge fan of the Ting Tings whatsoever, but I simply can't ignore this remix. Taku Takahashi fucking kills it, brodudes. I know that absolutely nobody else you know has this joint because it's absolutely fucking impossible to find. So, let me fix that:

If you're looking for something a bit more relaxed, yet still impeccably produced:

Lastly, I give you my personal favorite, Cherryboy Function:

Cherryboy Function is a Japanese DJ who takes it straight to the floor with authority. This is a far cry from the minimal techno dominating the conversation right now in the club scene; robust and complicated in construction, but somehow still completely accessible. There's an experimental slant to these songs' constructions that elevates these songs past traditional club music. Challenging in construction, but delightful in result, this record should be a wake up call for DJ's spinning the same old house records.

I highly recommend checking out this clip:

Hello all!

This marks the first of monthly ONTHATTIP.INFO editorials; I will vary the day on which I post The Look each month, so keep your eye out...

In the last year, tales of crooked traders and invasive marketers replaced the pickpockets and peeping toms of yore, leaving us to wonder who, if anyone, we can trust these days. The depraved now appear polished and credible, which inspired my January Look. I hope to see flagrant amorality return to its more-easily-identifiable dark corners in 2009.

Special thanks to Michael V. (of the pill, for you cave-dwellers) for lending his photography skills to my concept, and Marc Spellen, whose natural style and patience are indispensable.

Yours cruelly,
The Fashist Dictator
I am apparently still in recovery. Which, dear readers should more than likely key you into the kind of weekend that I have had. However, to my detriment , Saturday and Sunday revealed the takeover and birth of two defiantly distinct and much needed events. Bitches and Nigga's, I give you Circus ( like you didn't know) and Rescue Nite

Saturday January 17
With Guests Larry T, B.Rich, DJ Mannes, and Steve Lurkel

Saturday, to be honest, was steadily becoming my standby evening. Although, never disappointed, I had begun to loose the thrill associated with our favorite haunt. Last Saturday proved to me that Circus, is fast moving into the front of pack of Boston electro based nights. Throughout the evening I found that this was one of the first night's in a very long time where not only was the music on point, but every one of the patron's were as well.
B. Rich's opening set, was pretty much the highlight of my evening. Every bass heavy track punctuated and provoked the growing masses. Further indicating the direction our evening was bound to go in. In regards to DJ Mannes ,what else could I say other than ... "work."
Despite how generically gay that statement is , I am always a fan of a DJ that knows how to incite the crowds attention, without providing an overbearing set of nonsense. If your ever looking for the solution to that problem , here she is.

Although , I received the word from an accurate source, that Larry T was booked with "us" in mind. I have to be honest I was a touch turned off, once the connie, strawberry cheesecake martinis , and general douchery wore off(kinda). Despite the fact that having an artist of Larry's caliber in Boston is most definitely a much needed, and appreciated breath of fresh air. Is it appropriate to open with your own track? and further more, it seemed that a lot of the tracks that he played were from a summer or two ago. But then again, who looks a gift horse in the mouth

Especially when the end result is a night that looks exactly like this

I think its safe to say that the lines are no longer reserved for "you know where" at Privus.

Rescue Nite @ The Model

Sunday January 18th


Crowd Surfing******
My Bloody Valentine - Soft As Snow*****

You know its extremely rare when a night list's in total honesty what kind of music that they are playing and intend on playing. I have to say that Jeralyn, delivered the best , the obscure, and the previously unseen in New Wave, Post Punk, and Punk . And no, I am not saying this just to get that amazingly beautiful Roberto Cavalli t-shirt for free ( hint-hint). Although it is getting kind of annoying that everything that our favorite sibling duo touches , turns to gold . . .or something close to it i.e Jameson's . However, in this case I believe they have finally filled the last remaining niche in this city.

Boston, it's a officially a wrap...


Listen - I know you, ONTHATTIP.INFO readers.

If we are alike, you've noticed how bitterly cold of a January this has been for you. You have money troubles, the heating in your apartment doesn't work, and the City of Boston has done a really shitty job of clearing your street after each and every snowstorm.

Luckily for you, I have the cure - in it comes in the form of downtempo Swede-pop.

Boat Club hail from the beaches of Gothenburg, Sweden. Their debut EP, "Caught the Breeze", is host to one of the most simultaneously heartbreaking-yet-calming collective of songs ever grouped together. It's kind of like clutching your favorite drink at about 7PM, as your toes sift through pearl-white sands on a distant European beach in about 75 degree weather. BUT, your girlfriend just broke up with you via a particularly nasty text message.

Trust me on this one, yall.
