New Video: House Of Common Problems
Our new video and 2nd single, HOUSE OF COMMON PROBLEMS, is up for your eyeholes and earballs. It’s a dreamy little triptych of lost souls turning to public booty shakin’ for catharsis. Infinite love goes to our shooting locales Oz Kafé, Raw Sugar, Victoire Boutique, and Galerie SAW Gallery. SAW Video also gets major props for the generous use of their video editing facilities. They...

WE ARE PLAYING A JAIL RAVE.
This Saturday, we play the final F-Minus magazine launch party. We owe a great debt to CU’s Architectural students. Having barely a show under out belts, they welcomed us to play one of their infamous F-Minus magazine parties at Bowich last fall, and their Milleux (Kosmic) event. They helped us cut our teeth, and this Saturday, we’ll help them celebrate the release their last...
Debut Mix From SILKKEN's Pat Johnson
When not annihilating the skins during a marathon SILKKEN LAUMANN set, our drummer Pat Johnson is incessantly sifting through oceans of dance tracks. Here, we proudly present Pat’s debut mix set, Esoterixx Vol.1. Modern, anchored in melodic bass lines, with just a touch of humour, Pat’s debut mix is a doozy featuring choice cuts from Todd Terje, SCB, Tanner Ross, Metro Area and John...
Adam Saikaley, New DJ Mix; definitely available. →
Thanks to everyone that came out to St. Brigid’s Underground last weekend. CFCF got freaky on us, and we liked it. Pat’s nervousness about hitting the mark behind the decks was obviously unfounded; Johnson was on deep points, and Adam’s Baile Funk finds left us gobsmacked. Saikaley will be dropping another healthy set this last Saturday of February (the 25th) at the debut...
