Reminder: DJ Hero Video Game Drops on Tuesday!

| More

Logo for DJ Hero Game

What surprises me is the scarcity of media coverage in the Fargo-Moorhead area about the next generation of rhythm-based gameplay. With the unbelievable skills developed by teens and tweens playing bass, drums, and guitar (albeit in a simplified form) is amazing. DJ Hero has the potential to create a legion of new DJs.  DJ Joyride had the honor of releasing the preview of the DJ Hero video have in Minot back in early August.

"Watching these kids play the other successful Activision titles like Rock Band will blow your mind," said Joyride. "These gamers skip right past MEDIUM, and HARD modes to destroy their competition on EXPERT MODE. The amount of dexterity and coordination needed to play even a familiar song in EXPERT MODE is very impressive." The demo version of DJ Hero was very limited, with 3 "Mixes" to play and skill level max'ing out at HARD. "I'm still very excited for the game's full release in October."

I <3 New Music

Esser - I Love You (prince paul remix)
Esser - I Love You (radio)

Esser, a 23 year old UK native, created an album’s worth of forward-thinking, explosively catchy electronic pop songs in his bedroom. Braveface, with no label or marketing behind it, incited the Kaiser Chiefs to bring him on a sold out arena tour as their opening act, motivated Cee-Lo to enlist Esser to do production on his upcoming solo record and it caught the attention of legend Don Letts who recently performed with Esser on stage in London.
Aside from attracting the ears of tastemakers across the world, Esser’s talent as a songwriter is undeniable. With a knife-sharp sense of style, lyrical wit and bombastic production skills, Esser’s approach to pop songwriting comes from a distinctly British standpoint, flush with undercurrents of ska and dubstep. This is some of the catchiest and smartest pop to come out of the UK in a long time.
The first single from Braveface, “I Love You”, will be out May 26th as a limited edition 300 copy vinyl pressing complete with a handmade letterpressed jacket, and Prince Paul remix!

Maybe you'll even have something to contribute.

Excerpt from today's posts:
Today, I broke the glass of the photocopier trying to photocopy my ass. My boss will be here in five hours. She'll know it was me. I'm the only night guardian. FML
Today, it's my birthday but I had to go to work. I catch the train and I am forced to sit next to this weird smelly dude who jumps off one stop before mine. A little old lady jumps on so I shuffle over so she can sit down with ease. Upon exiting the train i notice my pants are wet with smelly dude's piss. FML
