Azari & III (DJ Set)

Azari & III

They're hungry, they're reckless, they're taking the world by storm with their relentless love beats and fanatical siren songs, they are Azari & III and their medium is the message - free your spirit through raw ass dance music all night long!

The mysterious duo from the northern steppes of Canada started a fire burning with the brazen Hungry For The Power, a single released last fall that is continually blowing up with fans ranging from Annie Mac to Grizzly Bear, Boys Noize to Broken Social Scene. The follow up smash, Reckless (With Your Love), is currently serving up a dose of techno soul so addictively repeatable, you gotta be cautious or you'll get hooked.

With remixes for and by the likes of Health, Munk, Booka Shade, Le Le, Bot'ox, Ali Love, Sidwo? Nacho Lovers, Mano Le Tough, Runaway, Cosmo Vitelli and Mathias Aguayo, wait, lemme catch my breath...its only been 8 months but this outfit is outputting like a sweatshop in July! Let's hope they don't so quickly disappear into the strange abyss from which they came...but somehow I think there is a grander story unfolding here...

Myles Cooper

"Here's former Boy George impersonator and all-round gay San Franciscan scenester Myles Cooper singing a bright little Casiotone paean to pleasure-seeking called Gonna Find Boyfriends Today. It's so bubbly and bouncy in its jolly infectiousness and cheerful simplicity, it almost works as a kindergarten sing-song. Really, we're not sure what Cooper's agenda is. Is it just a bit of harmless pop mischief? Is it meant to be subversive? Is he trying to wind up – or put the wind up – straight society? Was the intention to make the 21st-century I'm Too Sexy or the latterday Glad to Be Gay? Whatever, we can't imagine many parents wanting their kids to chant along to a fun-time ditty about finding fellas for frolics. You'd never know he was once in a goth band called Mr Vampire and was a member of druggy, indie lo-fi slacker miserabilists Girls, although there is something about the naive candour of that San Franciscan band's music that's a bit Cooper-esque. It's just that whereas Girls are dour, Cooper paints the whole world Day-Glo.... there is more to Cooper than happy clappy pop. The B-side of the single is Lord Love Music, which is a slow and slurry dance tune that sounds like a funk band playing underwater – he cites, among others, Prince, Sly Stone, Chic, and Frankie Knuckles as "the ones that have taught me the most about music lately". Then again, he also rates Perry Como and Glenn Danzig, so God knows what his next single will be like. Maybe it will be called Magic Moments and it will be a merry hymn of praise to muscular-rock Satanists." --UK Guardian
