Steve Goodman is Kode 9.
Scottish DJ Steve Goodman, better known as Kode 9, took the stage at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge on March 30, 2010 opening for Flying Lotus. His style of DJing is called Dubstep, which for the non-ravers out there means that Dubstep tracks are generally produced at a tempo of around 140 beats per minute and in recent years have developed signature half time rhythms, often heavily shuffled or syncopated, and usually, though not exclusively, including only one snare drum hit per bar, often on the third beat. According2g that means you’re gonna dance your ass off and get lost in the funky tribal beats. For the Prince fans that might be reading this, you might want to look into Kode 9’s 2004 collaboration with Daddy Gee called “Sine of the Dub,” which is a loose interpretation of the purple one’s “Sign O’ the Times.”

Jason Chung is Nosaj Thing.
California native (yay Cali!) Nosaj Thing opened for DJ Flying Lotus at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge on March 30, 2010. Born Jason Chung, Nosaj Thing mixes elements of hip-hop and funk with his own “warped beats.” The sold out crowd got their groove on as they waited until the very late hour of 1:30 for Lotus to take over on DJing duties. As Nosaj Thing is only 24 years old, you can expect to see a lot more of him in the future on top of the throne of great DJs. If you head on over to his site, you can download free mp3s of his remixes of “Islands” by The XX and “Forever” by Drake featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem.
Pasadena is in the house! Woot!
