!! OMG, things that exist: Edward Snowden and Jean-Michel Jarre have made a techno track together !!

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has collaborated with French electronic pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre to make sweet music on a techno track to be released this coming weekend.

The unusual team-up came about after Jarre was interviewed for the Guardian last year. He asked if he could be put in touch with Snowden, whose revelations about US government surveillance were published in the newspaper.Jarre had come up with a “hectic, obsessive techno track, trying to illustrate the idea of this crazy quest for big data on one side and the manhunt for this one young guy by the CIA, NSA and FBI on the other,” he explained, calling Snowden “an absolute hero of our times”.

‘Exit’ features Snowden’s voice (speaking, not singing) and appears on Jarre’s forthcoming album of collaborations, Electronica Volume II: The Heart Of Noise, alongside tracks featuring Pet Shop Boys, Jeff Mills, Cyndi Lauper and many more.

Werk it, whistleblower! Electronica Volume II is due on May 6. WTF.

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Clattyshack’s deep and techy AMYGDALA mix will warm your winter Monday !!

Amygdala_01

Not to be confused with Princess Amidala, an explanation for the title of Toronto-based DJ Clattyshack‘s latest titled mix is:

AMYGDALA: Emotional reactions to your surroundings are fabricated within the amygdala. here, emotional memories are formed, creating your perception of a significant existence. before the cortex has time to process incoming stimuli rationally, the amygdala has already decided how you will react, and how that memory will resonate throughout your brain for the rest of your life.

Check out Clattyshack‘s mix of eclectic deep and techy house vibes above, and create some warm memories for yourself on a cold winter Monday.

!! OMG, Claire Danes talks loving techno and going to Berghain on Ellen !!

Wait… WHAT? In a parallel universe somewhere Claire Danes sat down with Ellen to chat BERGHAIN, Berlin’s most-notorious drugged out techno haven. I bet Ellen would Ellen-dance the shit out of a Marcel Dettmann set in a practical (black!) blazer and white sneakers if she had the chance!
