Exclusive Interview: Why Modern Machines Are Ahead Of Their Time

June 20, 2013 in Featured, Show

Two weeks ago, members of the Hau5chat paid a visit to EVR, a new club/lounge in midtown NYC, to see Modern Machines perform.  The weather may have been a downer, but the DJs energy was nothing short of high.  After seeing them open for Hard Rock Sofa in March at Lavo, we were anxious to see what the guys could do with a full 2 hours behind the decks.  After they tore down the house, we caught up with the NY-based duo to discuss upcoming tour plans, future releases, and more.  Check it out below!

MM Hau5chat

Hau5chat:  Hey guys! Your set tonight was sick. Do you get tired after playing a show like tonight?

Modern Machines:  Not at all, we’re actually going to go bother one of our friends who’s DJing on the Lower East Side after this.

H:  So we heard you played another set before this one tonight. Where was that? Read the rest of this entry →

Recent Release: The Knocks – “Modern Hearts” (Modern Machines Remix)

June 6, 2013 in Featured, Music

The Hau5chat first encountered Modern Machines, a duo consisting of Dimitry Mak and Kapla, back in March at Lavo in NYC, where they opened for Hard Rock Sofa.  We had never head of the producers before, but only a few minutes into their opening set, we were instantly fans.  The two began producing tracks together over two years ago and have recently garnered some notereity by playing frequently at clubs in NYC (including opening for Dash Berlin at Marquee for one of the official EDC NY after parties a couple weeks ago) and hitting up some festivals including Bounce Fest out west and Miami Music Week this past March.  The duo are playing tomorrow night at new New York club, EVR, and the Hau5chat will be in attendance.  Check out their latest release, a remix of The Knocks’ “Modern Hearts,” below.

Also, check out the guys on Soundcloud, Facebook, and Twitter and help spread the word about some local talent!

Review: Hardwell at Governor’s Island New York City (5/26/13)

May 31, 2013 in Featured, Review, Show

The first sign of warm weather in the northeast immediately sparks visions of festival season and outdoor shows to those EDM fans that endured the long winter inside. After months of overcrowded indoor venues, we are all eager to don our cutoffs, tank tops and shorts (wait, that’s still year ‘round). Memorial Day marks the annual unofficial beginning of summer, and Governor’s Island decided to take it upon themselves to open their season with a bang. Read the rest of this entry →

News: Moonrise Festival Cancelled

May 22, 2013 in Festival



Moonrise Festival, which was scheduled to take place June 8 and 9 in Baltimore, has been cancelled as of this evening.  The event, which was planned by Steez Promo, was supposed to take place in Port Covington, a relatively new venue that was large enough where the event could have become an annual festival.  The two day festival was to run from 11 Am until 11 PM both days and had talent from all over the world scheduled to perform.  DJ acts such as Avicii, Pretty Lights, Eric Prydz, Krewella, and Porter Robinson, amongst many others, were on the lineup.

The official statement by Steez Promo and Moonrise Festival can be read HERE and all refunds will be given through Ticketfly.

Now more than ever, the Hau5chat can’t help but look forward to Electric Forest in June and Electric Zoo in August; hope to see you all at both!

Electric Daisy Carnival – New York

DJ Fresh at The Bass Pod

With all of the talent at Electric Daisy Carnival, it is difficult to say which set was truly my favorite. Some of my top sets include 12th Planet, Eric Prydz, Zeds Dead, Figure, Mark Knight, Cookie Monsta & Funtcase, Dash Berlin, and DJ Fresh. As you can see I have a wide open mind when it comes to genre mobility. I enjoy seeing a bit of each genre to get a better view of Electronic Dance Music as a whole. Read the rest of this entry →

New Release: Giorgio Moroder – “Racer”

May 21, 2013 in Featured, Music

Most fans of electronic music had probably not heard of Giorgio Moroder until recently.  I know I had not heard of the music legend until a collaboration with Daft Punk off their new album, “Random Access Memories,” leaked onto the internet after someone took a stealthy recording at a private listening party.  The track, which we have all come to find out is titled “Giorgio By Moroder,” happens to be a consensus pick by the Hau5chat as one of the top tracks on the album.

Moroder more famously made a name for himself as a producer in the 70s and 80s.  He is most known for his work during the disco era, with artists like Donna Summer and David Bowie, as well as his work on the scores for movies such as “Flashdance,” “The Neverending Story,” and “Scarface.”

As his name rises to prominence with the help of the robots everyone loves, he has teamed up with Google for a track called “Racer.”  The song serves as the score for a new game developed by Google for their mobile browser, Chrome.  Moroder played the track last night at his appearance at Brooklyn nightclub, “Output,” where the Hau5chat hears it was very well received.  Check it out below and you can download it HERE for free on Google Play.
