Introducing Baby Armie's ANTS Podcast

ANTS Podcast With Baby Armie

AiMT is nearly five years old now, and I've had a blast with it. But the big problem with it has been that I just don't make time to post regularly. I've put so much of my musical energies into DJing over the past few years that posting individual tracks feels a bit forced and unnecessary. With the launch of the ANTS mixshow podcast, I'm giving myself a new outlet to share music more regularly and naturally in a format that works best for me in the present.

You can expect new podcasts bi-monthly. The format is fully eclectic—I'll share the full spectrum of what I'm vibing with inside and outside of my club/party DJ work. For this week, I've covered some of my favorite newer grime selections, and I have two more podcasts in the archive in case you're still hungry. I'll post all the podcasts here on AiMT, but you can also subscribe on iTunes, Mixcloud, via RSS, or follow on Mixcloud. Read more juicy details on the ANTS Podcast here. . . . . . . . . . . .

Cool Shoes Fayetteville tonight!

Cool Shoes Fayettevilleflyer design by Shawn Lee
It's Friday the 13th, and the amazingly on-point monthly Little Rock party Cool Shoes has come to Fayetteville! I've been pumping Cool Shoes here on AiMT for years now, so I'm very happy to help bring it to my home town. Tonight we've got Cool Shoes residents Wolf-E-Wolf and Cam Holifield along with myself and local DJ/promoter extraordinaire Beat Bachs. The Cool Shoes crew will be bringing down tons of extra sound, lights, and visuals. Hope to see you there.

Enjoy Wolf-E-Wolf's remix of Ronald Jenkees as a teaser for tonight:

Major Lazer [ft. Vybz Kartel] - "Pon de Floor (Wolf-E-Wolf Remix)"

illustration by Arlo Rams
Arkansas' reigning dubstep head honcho Wolf-E-Wolf doesn't drop tracks all too often, but when he does, it's usually quite an event. And this rework of the '09 Major Lazer classic is his most impressive offering to date.

Wolf has been owning the Central Arkansas party circuit lately. He's headlined just about every Cool Shoes and Sub Kulture in the past year—this is the case even when they've got big-name out-of-towners on the bill. This remix is a good indication that Wolf won't likely be slowing down anytime soon.

Kito & Reija Lee - "Run for Cover"

Crizzly in Little Rock tonight at Sub Kulture



Just a quick heads up that San Antonio dubstep champ Crizzly is headlining tonight's Sub Kulture at Downtown Music Hall in Little Rock. Here's his take on L.A. Style's '92 techno classic "James Brown Is Dead":

New Exit Comp: Mosaic, Vol. 1



Never saw myself doing a drum and bass post, but this new Exit Records comp is on the extreme outer fringes of the genre. (So it's barely a drum and bass post.) In the writeup for Mosaic, Vol. 1, Exit casually calls the comp "drum and bass" a few times over. This has me puzzled. To my highly American and drum-and-bass-shy ears, only five of Mosaic's 20 tracks sound even remotely like the genre. It's much more in the spirit of early '90s Warp ELM/IDM than any drum and bass I'm used to. Plus names like Scuba, Distance and Instra:mental pop up a lot more in the dubstep circuit (at least on my radar).

But I guess none of that is really important. Whatever you want to call it, it's a solid listen through and through. Exit has uploaded two-minute samples of each track from the comp. Stream here:
