If you’re going to only read one music monday post, I advocate for the Looney edition.

Doctor Jeep is Andre Lira from Boston, and is playing at Outpost1 this Friday. We hang out with him on Facebook or Ustream or TURRBOTAX or wherever else, and he’s a fun-loving young man with some murderous productions. I heard his track ‘Level II’ on XLR8R a few months ago and have played it in most of my DJ sets since then, cause it’s the bomb. Andre did us a tight lil partytime mix below, way to revive Missy Elliot ‘Lose Control’ from the vaults! KC‘s interview after the jump. Before the party on Friday, tune in 6-10pm on WCDB 90.9 fm for the usual OUTPOST1 Takeover. Cause you know there’s fun to be had.

How did you first get into the good business of DJing and making music? Do you identify more with being considered a producer or a DJ? I’ve written some form of music since like middle school, but started making dance music freshman year in college and DJing at parties we had in my apartment around the same time. I like both titles equally, but there’s something way more rewarding about producing a song that I think will only appeal to me and my weird tastes and hearing that other DJs are playing it out in France or Russia or pretty much anywhere other than my bedroom. Don’t get me wrong, hanging out and mixing with my friends is probably my favorite pastime, but in Boston I’d say I’m more well known for producing than DJing.
Hit the jump for the rest of the interview!
Hi, this is Scott b2b KC. I met Cunei4m when he saw a post I made on here about how everyone should be listening to Mosca productions. Then I started regularly going into his yardcasts. Then we started rappin’ hours at a time on Facebook chat, in which we’ve thoroughly analyzed everything from Transmat records to Soul food to how riding mopeds makes you evolutionary superior to your fellow man. Below is probably my favorite mixtape we’ve put out there so far, it bangs really hard. The party this Friday will be serious business.
KC on the interview duties below!
When I received the interview questions back in my inbox, there was a disclaimer attached — reminding me that I just interviewed a writer…as well as an immaculate DJ, a good friend and a fellow night owl… and so as a result, “shit is LOOOOOOOOOONG.” Yeah, well, guess what, we’re posting it allllll…. This is one of my favorite interviews to date and comes recommended, all while playing the OUTPOST1 mix available conveniently above…
Guess what, humans only use 10% of their brains, and by not listening to techno music from Detroit, you’re forfeiting any chances of upping that number.
Of course nowadays, techno comes from other places too, like the Jersey Shore or maybe Iowa, but I don’t acknowledge its existence. It’s all about the original Detroit Techno and the modern-day producers who take cues from it…and if you listen to it, two things will happen. First, your brain will become more efficient and capable of dealing with the year 2011. Second, your heart will become heavy with romance for urban decay and hope for the arc of humanity as a whole. It’s also good for dancing. I just saw a writeup on my man DJ Rolando, a legend of Detroit Techno, and I wanted to make sure you’re aware of him.
Here’s the classic tune, probably what the inventors of XML or the guys in Ariel Pink’s band listen to, now that he has one. It came out in 1999, but it has absolutely nothing to do with Moby.
& Here’s a mixtape from February from Fact magazine, he’s still got it!
Sup it’s Mycon and KC. This is the third Outpost1 mixtape, created by none other than DJ MikeQ, whom we’re very excited to say will be visiting us this Friday at the Fuze Box, to have fun wrecking the club with Deep Children, Party With Tina and Dwell.
Not only that, but KC interviewed him. I love Mike’s answers and can’t wait to meet the man. Check it out beneath the jump and show love this Friday!
Doctor Jeep is one of my favorite producer names I’ve heard in awhile. Biggin up my new friend Andre – Doctor Jeep out of Boston.
Came across his new track ‘Level II’ on XLR8R two weeks ago and sent him a message on the Soundcloud. Doctor Jeep’s beats and tastes mirror my own, which is a very rare thing in the Northeast..even including NYC…classic rave, UK Bass, with clear influences from regional American club sounds like Juke and Baltimore Club. I know the average reader on here isn’t that into listening to club tracks individually (don’t worry cause these will be on my next mixtape), but these tracks are ILL and are putting the Northeast on the map.
This is an EP put out just in February by Banana Peel records, which seems like a quality label. The first track is like 8 minutes long and so epic. I hate to do the comparisons, but Ramadanman style percussion mutations (PLEASE do yourself a favor and look him up) with a definite unique twist. Not familiar with either of the remixers, but they are top notch. I’m going to play all of these.
BPR001 / Doctor Jeep – Yr Mnd EP by Banana Peel Records
So yeah, giving my new pal Doctor Jeep some exposure here, I count myself as a big fan. Hmmm I think maybe look out for him in Albany sometime soon.
Sup its Mycon!!!!!!!
Hope everyone liked Ghosts On Tape as much as us DJs did. When he dropped ‘Wouldn’t You Like to be a Hoe’ by DJ Slugo I was the happiest man in the club. The next day we took him to Miss Albany for a taste of that Mad Irish business, and dug through old rave 12″s at Last Vestige. He was down with our fair city! Really one of the pioneers in the new wave of US house/bass – check out new Ghosts On Tape records coming out in the near future.
Going right into next months Outpost1 guests so you have an idea of what’s going on. We got our fam Dwell coming through. Dwell lives around the corner from me, where he has awesome BBQs that I always miss cause I’m out riding mopeds. He started DJing in Albuquerque, but in our city is big in both the DJ and art worlds; It’s really thanks to dudes like Dwell that those are the same thing in Albany. Dwell gets everything in from Rare groove to dubstep, he’s a crate-digger in the classical sense of the word. Check this mixtape of the former. It’s that goodness.
Mike Q is headlining our party in May, coming off an XLR8R podcast that blew up the world, he is now everywhere. The background of his sound (BALLROOM!) deserves a good story, and I suggest you check that out here… this music is like the best elements of classic rave and NY house, baltimore club sampling fun, and Detroit/Chicago booty raunchiness.
