Star Axis is “an architectonic earth/star sculpture” (detailed info here) by American artist Charles Ross. Conceived in 1971 and began in 1976, Star Axis — located on a Mesa in New Mexico — is scheduled for completion in 2013. Sadly there aren’t a whole lot of photos of this incredible structure out there. I guess I’ll have to take a trip down to Mesa.
Toro y Moi has a new EP out and it’s chalked full of funk with a house appeal, personally loving this one the most.
Tornado Wallace makes tracks for DJs, nice long cuts that are perfect for cueing in and mixing together, he perfected this Cut Copy cut.
Benoit & Sergio do the best club remixes, soo many other artists edits fall my the waist side because there usually one trick ponies or follow a formula or just copy others. Benoit & Sergio have there own thing going, full of detail and not trying to fake the hype.
ON SIDE NOTE: Head over to the ISO50 turntable.fm room, click it and listen to other ISO50 readers DJ this weekend, we will be scheduling a few listening sessions and guest DJs soon.
Loving this new song and video from Beirut. The video is by Sunset Television. I don’t know much about them but I remember someone telling me they were a student collective from Columbia (could totally be making that up though). Anyways, loving the humor and aesthetic; very fitting.
We’re happy to be able to share this new track from Braille aka Sepalcure/Praveen, i’ve been trying to follow all the Braille material, it grabs my ear soo quickly. Its honestly that perfect blend that brings elements of what I love in tribal/house to the dancefloor in less of a world music way but more in a everyone is invited to enjoy it way, support by purchasing it here
Foxes In Fiction just leaked his live version of Jimi Bleachball, a definite favorite last year, grab it here for free from his tumblr.
I’m a sucker for most Quantec tracks, once i’m a couple minutes in, it becomes THE sound that I want to hear for the rest of the day. You should grab up some of his music and make a playlist for tonight.
New Onra and its longer than 3 minutes? don’t write it off this has potential, its riding a thin line of Easy Listening but with the Onra touch, some might call this dated but i’m calling it skillful, really impressed even though I don’t have much experience in knowing this sounds history.

Machines assembling other machines with precision and complexity is the visual some people might get if they sit back an enjoy ADR who is half of Gatekeeper, and knowing that makes me insure the influences of this album is authentic and not just a recent hobby, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Com Truise recently leaked an old tune for free on his site. Datebar has this drifting feeling/sound that Seth mastered awhile back, it probably comes from the pushing beat and that release on all the melting synth notes.
SV4 nailed it when he commented “Sting meets Kings Of Convenience” when he posted the Gotye video on his facebook.
