### Is the for ?

source: http://www.wired.com/2014/08/edward-snowden/

By the time he went to work for Booz Allen in the spring of 2013, Snowden was thoroughly disillusioned, yet he had not lost his capacity for shock. One day an intelligence officer told him that TAO—a division of NSA hackers—had attempted in 2012 to remotely install an exploit in one of the core routers at a major Internet service provider in Syria, which was in the midst of a prolonged civil war. This would have given the NSA access to email and other Internet traffic from much of the country. But something went wrong, and the router was bricked instead—rendered totally inoperable. The failure of this router caused Syria to suddenly lose all connection to the Internet—although the public didn’t know that the US government was responsible. (This is the first time the claim has been revealed.)

Thinking of getting a new laptop for your music, but not sure if those new models can handle it? This might help:

Apple MacBook Refresh Makes 13" Retina a Great Sweet Spot for Music - Create Digital Music

The laptop is such an obvious part of music making today, it’s almost easy to understate its importance. But here’s the bottom line: for many musicians, it’s the most important gadget they’ll haul around with them. The glowing Apple logo may be the butt of some jokes, but it’s there for a reason.

Day 3 gratitude:
1) trying to meet up with friends but failed. Then spent an hour watching the sea splashing onto the rock, one of them were So high and that brought a smile on my face, a nice surprise! Later another friend showed up and we had a wonderful day at the beach, saw the beautiful sunset at ipanema but as soon as the sun was set we turn around and saw the biggest moon rise of my life, I screamed and jumped and almost cried! Thank you for the surprises!
2)thank you avocado, you are truly wonderful, today I have been vegetarian for 2 weeks.95%vegetarian. I enjoyed it!
3)thank you for the beautiful day. I am grateful for being able to walk, to breathe, to see, to hear, to smell, to think. Grateful to be here in Rio, healthy and safe and happy, when I think of those day I can only see Rio on google map and pictures, now I am actually walking the streets of Rio and swim at my favorite beach, can be able to see sugar loaf mountain and the Christ everyday, how lucky I am!

Passing the torch to my Aussie friends: Jin Simona Gregor :)

Absolute Bowie
Friday 22nd August 2014
The Halfmoon, 93 Lower Richmond Road, Putney London
Absolute Bowie were formed through a chance meeting and a mutual love of David Bowie?s music. After first conceiving the idea of a Bowie tribute we needed to create a dynamic in order to accomplish our goal.

To create the authentic feel, we needed the right musicians. We searched far and wide ? our musical journey was finally nearing its end as we gathered our spaceboys one by one. Once assembled our dynamic grew day by day. We placed an advert in the Algarve Times for a rock god ? Mick Ransom fell to earth and the line up was complete.

Choosing the material from db?s back catalogue was difficult given that there are so many great songs in his vast repertoire. The only unanimous decision was to leave out ?The Laughing Gnome?. Even the man himself feigned deafness when fans requested the ?song?.

DIVA

Back in January of 2013, XLR8R was rather worked up about Paris Stabbing EP, the three-track debut EP from DIVA, a producer whose true identity was shrouded in mystery. Having been assured that more music was in the pipeline, we even tabbed DIVA as one of that year's Artists to Watch, but our excitement was initially met with, well, nothing, as the then-anonymous beatmaker remained silent for an entire year. However, when DIVA finally did speak up again, what he had to say was fairly significant, as he not only announced the launch of a new label, Obsession, but also revealed himself as Canadian producer Matt Didemus, better known as one half of Junior Boys. His young imprint officially began its run last month, dropping a four-track compilation EP that is still streaming here, and more releases are on the way. Ahead of their arrival, we thought now would be a good time to get a larger look at Didemus' current musical headspace, so we invited him to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series.

Special Request

It's not often that an already successful artist comes up with a new alias and sees their career trajectory suddenly jump to another level, but that's exactly what seems to have happened to Paul Woolford. For more than a decade, the UK producer has been releasing a steady stream of well-received music, both under his own name and a variety of monikers, including Bobby Peru, Hip Therapist, and Skip Donahue. Still, at the start of 2012, he was still generally known as Paul Woolford, respectable and reliable techno producer. It wasn't until he began making hardcore- and jungle-referencing music as Special Request that things started to change. Initially issuing a series of white-label 12"s, the project was eventually snapped up by the young Houndstooth, which has just released the first Special Request LP, Soul Music. Coming at a time when nostalgia for the pirate-radio era and a renewed interest in jungle and drum & bass appears to be surging, Special Request has quite simply exploded, placing Woolford on a bigger stage than ever before. Given that, it seemed like the perfect time for the veteran producer to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series.

Discovery with Eric Duncan
Friday 11th July 2014
The Horse and Groomm, 28 Curtain Road, London, EC2A 3NZ, United Kingdom
Eric Duncan aka Dr Dunks is one half of legendary DJ duo Rub-n-Tug and also half of DFA's Still Going.

Dunks No matter the name though, the game remains unchanged: peak time party provider.

Ever since coming up in his hometown of Los Angeles' freestyle and hip-hop scene in the early 80s, Duncan has been a sound selector extraordinaire.

With partner Thomas Bullock, he threw the notorious late 20th century Rub-n-Tug disco parties in downtown Manhattan, turning on a new generation of revellers to the sleazy pleasures of disco.

He followed that up as the Saturday night resident at Passerby Bar, fuelling the party until Sunday morning. Be it slo-mo disco, incandescent funk, or banging house music, Duncan weaves it all together into a nightlife soundtrack.

In the studio, Dunks has remixed everyone from LCD Soundsystem to Zero 7, the Beastie Boys to Coldplay, !!! to Roxy Music, Patrick Wolf to Grace Jones. Now it's time for folks other than New York City's 24 Hour Party People to get a dose of Dr. Dunks's medicine.

Forthcoming is the eagerly-anticipated Rub-N-Tug full-length album, as well as the first album from Still Going. Noice! Described by the legend DJ Harvey as "the best dj on the planet right now https://soundcloud.com/eric-duncan

Discovery- It has been a non-stop magic carpet ride for the Discovery boys Jac the Disco and Neil Thorntonwith acclaimed guests such as Tornado Wallace, Gilb'r (Chateau flight), Casino Times, Steve Kotey, Loud-E, DJ Kaos, Dan Beaumont, Andy Blake, Lee Douglas, Justin Vandervolgen, Eric Duncan, Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco, Rahaan, Toby Tobias, In Flagranti, Young Marco, Baby G and many more joining them in the disco booth.

The party ethos is is simple bringing the party to the party.

Jerome LOL

While the electronic spectrum is full of producers that could be described as unique, Jerome LOL is someone who truly marches to the beat of his own drum. It's been more than a year since his shape-shifting former outfit, LOL Boys, went on what has seemingly become a permanent hiatus, and in that time, the LA-based artist and co-founder of the ascendant Body High label has maintained his undeniably meta sense of humor and continued to build an identity based around various web tropes and an affinity for the aesthetics of the internet's early days. However, he's also established himself as a skilled producer of washy, emotive, and slow-grooving house, albeit a variant that also includes plenty of nods to (and outright appropriation of) contemporary Top 40. Following a series of self-released singles?"which were later compiled and mixed on a limited-edition cassette?"Jerome LOL will finally be issuing his first official EP, Deleted/Fool, next week via the Friends of Friends label. The four-track effort is currently streaming online, but we were curious to hear more, which is why we asked Jerome LOL to put together this week's XLR8R podcast.
