Posted By on Fri, Feb 17, 2012 at 10:50 AM

A few weeks ago, we posted about the world of cats and electronic music. Today, we continue that increasingly popular theme.

Now that Skrillex's win of three Grammys has perhaps readied the world for cats who love dubstep, can monkeys who love moombahton be behind?

(Note: Datsik will be in Indy next Tuesday with Steve Aoki, followed by Excision in March.

Via the Portland Mercury.

Video: Boots. Cats. Boots. Cats.

Posted By on Wed, Jan 25, 2012 at 12:18 PM

Timesuck has shown an affinity for electronic music. And cats. After watching the "Boots and Cats" video, we now have an affinity for cats and electronic music together - along with the surprisingly fitting addition of boots and bees.

Bassnectar: Electronic music's family tree

Posted By on Sat, Jan 7, 2012 at 11:15 AM

A few days ago we posted about dubstep's infiltration of pop culture in 2011. If you didn't know what dubstep was then and still don't know, or just want to know more, a new video about the structural relationship between different genres of electronic dance music (EDM) might help.

With some help from motion graphics, EDM producer Bassnectar explains broken beat vs. steady beat, hip-hop vs. dancehall, breakbeat vs. drum n bass, and so on, leading up to dubstep - which is half-time breakbeat. I won't worry about explaining it here, since Bassnectar does a nice job in under 3 minutes.

And don't worry about it being too technical: Of dubstep, he says "the beat's like BOWOWOWOWOWOW just like really fucking heavy."

Audio from the motion graphics clip above is taken from the original interview:

Thanks to Matt Ramsey and Jason King of IndyMojo for sharing this video. If you dig dubstep and its relatives, check out IndyMojo's weekly Altered Thurzdaze shows at the Mousetrap.

Dubstep broke in 2011. What'll break in 2012?

Posted By on Tue, Jan 3, 2012 at 3:30 PM

You might not know what dubstep is, but odds are good you heard strains of it in 2011. The bass-heavy electronic music's wave washed through pop culture last year, but we'll see in 2012 whether its prevalence is as sticky as Skrillex's hair (see video below.)

The music genre was recapped in this MTV infographic, which was most helpful in reminding us that MTV hasn't forgotten that music still exists in spite of the network's ubiquitous reality TV programming.

So, what newly popular genre will we look back on in 2013? Fill in the blank in our comments section: 2012 will be the year ______ broke.

And while we're at it:

Note: If you still don't know what dubstep is, this album probably won't help you.

Madonna to play Super Bowl Halftime Show

Posted By on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 9:15 AM

Pop music elder stateswoman Madonna will perform at the 2012 Super Bowl Halftime Show in Indianapolis. According to a press release, her performance "will be imagined by CIRQUE DU SOLEIL and JAMIE KING." The release doesn't address whether viewers can anticipate a WARDROBE MALFUNCTION.

Get yourself psyched for the performance with five of Madonna's best videos, and let us know which ones we left out. (Note to the youth: Madonna is the new Lady Gaga, who was the new Madonna.)

5. Music

Get More: Madonna - Music

The most bizarre music video you'll see today

Posted By on Wed, Nov 30, 2011 at 4:37 PM

Fans of Thursday night comedy on NBC take note. The Office's beleaguered paper salesman Stanley Hudson is branching dance music.

Featuring compelling lines like "Touch my crown/Call me a king/I'm a sex machine," Leslie David Barker performs in a new pop music video you definitely didn't see coming. The track, "2 Be Simple" features L.A. pop/house/dance musicians N.U.M.
