Friday Rocks

Well look at that, three posts just this week alone. I thought it’d be a challenge to update weekly, but this blog thing just proves that there’s too much good music out there that has to be shared. And… that I talk too much.

It’s Friday night Tokyoites! Need I say more?

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore Fake Blood aka Touche’ aka Theo Keating. His music runs through my veins, and I would give my kingdom just to see him here in Tokyo (VIP no less). He cracks me up with his tweets, he enjoys his winter sports, and he’s known to go ape-cuss on anyone leaking his music. A match made in heaven methinks. Anyways, I first heard “Medieval” while watching one of his sets for Halloween on Youtube and have been eagerly awaiting it’s release. It’s not released yet, this is just the first showing of his new EP, only a 320 rip from the full mix. Giggity.

Fake Blood – Medieval

So apparently people didn’t like seeing ginger kids being executed in M.I.A’s “Born Free” video. But Ms. /\/\ /\ Y /\ has dropped another digital release which has been given the title Internet Connection (The Remixes). Check out two of the four remixes below:

M.I.A – Internet Connection (Flux Pavilion remix)

M.I.A – Internet Connection (Buraka Som Sistema remix)

Dang, it’s already 9.30pm so that’s all for now, see you at “Sniff Sniff” tonight! x


Sniff Sniff… how very very appropriate

My nose is one lazy sonofabitch. It believes my mouth should do all the breathing and it should just sit there looking pretty. This cold isn’t easing up anytime soon. Cuss. So, how incredibly appropriate it is that Hello Kl!tty will be spinning at Sniff Sniff @ Trump Room tomorrow night? Uncanny as it is, we’re super excited to play again at another one of Trent’s parties. Last Sniff Sniff was earlier this month and through the success of that we expect it to be even crazier this time. Come watch the kitties skin this bunny alive!

Drop the Lime – Hot as Hell (Yolanda Be Cool remix)

Did I forget to mention that Trippple Nippples will be sniffing about too? Here’s my personal favourite:
Trippple Nippples – RIP MEAT (Bestrack remix)

Also Das Moth will be doing his Moon/Wrong EP Release set
Das Moth – Moon


Pardon the Pundit


I have a fever. And not the good kind that Peggy Lee sings about. It seems that I’ve gotten what’s been going around Tokyo for the past couple of weeks.
Rest assured though, while hopped up on meds and sipping on my juice box I still posted some songs that ironically popped up while listening to my iPod. Have a healthy dose of these sick tracks… If you’ll pardon the pun.

Solid Groove – This is SICK (Riva Starr rechunk)

If Deadmau5 and Justice had a baby, it would be Wolfgang Gartner. I mean, with a name like Wolfgang, how could you possibly not be destined for greatness? (Note to self: Change name to Wolfgang Van Guetta…). Anywho, Wolfgang just yesterday debuted his music video to Illmerica. He posted on his facebook that it’s a “nice little trip through American history with some crazy graphics, if you pay close attention there is some funny stuff in there. . .” And right he is as I’ve watched it about a dozen times since yesterday, you see something new each time and it doesn’t hurt that the track is addictive.

Here’s a mash-up of Justice vs. Wolfgang Gartner – Illmerica Are Your Friends (Steve Camp Mashup)

And finally, Crookers is just what the doctor ordered
Crookers vs Miike Snow – Remedy (Magik Johnson Vocal mix)


Friday Rocks

Well this blows. My laptop won’t turn on and I’ve never met anything I couldn’t turn on *wink wink nudge nudge. How am I to stick to a new year’s resolution of keeping a blog without a functioning computer? On the plus side, it’s Friday and the weather looks fantastic outside. So in the hopes of my beloved just going through the Lazurus Syndrome, why not join me as I dance around the apartment listening to these tracks?
My spirits are always lifted when I hear me some Fake Blood.

Calvin Harris – Ready for the Weekend (Fake Blood remix)

I absolutely cannot get enough of Boys Noize, and when AC Slater is thrown into the mix it’s like “Computer, what?”

Boys Noize – Yeah (AC Slater remix)

Deadmau5 saves lives! Did I hear Super Mario spitting fireballs?
Deadmau5 – Limit Break


Hello world!

This was a long time coming. In fact, I decided that if I didn’t start my blog by the new year then I should stop dreaming about it. So here I am, with so many ideas circulating in my head but really not too sure how to start off.

Firstly, the name JanKenBPM. Jan-ken-pon (じゃんけんぽん) is the Japanese version of Rock, Paper, Scissors and is used fairly often to settle any indecision. I kinda used it to decide between WordPress and Blogger (let’s hope my decision was wise). The BPM part comes in because I DJ in Tokyo… 128 bpm and up おねがいします!Electro, House, and I dare say some Dubstep will be thrown into the mix. Really any music that I come across that I just have to write about.

JanKenBPM is a music blog first, but I’ll also be adding events in Tokyo, fashion here and there and dammit whenever I’m craving bacon.
