Chemical Brothers Create New Years Eve Edition of Midnight Madness

From the Chemical Brothers' blog:

The brothers and all at Chemicals HQ thank you for your loyal support in '08, and we wish you peace, love and happiness in 09!

As the year winds down, we have one last surprise for you here at The House Of Chemical. As the track is already a must play for ringing in the midnight hour, The Chems have whipped up a special New Years' Eve edition of "Midnight Madness".

This version has been serviced to DJs only for NYE, however we'll be posting the track up here tomorrow for your streaming pleasure. It will no doubt turn up in some of your favorite DJs sets tomorrow night as well (and do be sure and support your local DJ and local music scene).

Royksopp Celebrate Their Birthday by Giving Away New Track

Awesome Norwegian electronic duo, Royksopp, are celebrating their birthday today and giving away a new track (their first studio release since their last album the Understanding came out in 2005) at their website. The site is being re-designed soon, perhaps to coincide with the release of their new album? which did not come out 2 months ago.

Santos Party House/100 Lafayette has moved!!

The wonderful new venue that opened downtown this year has shifted from 100 Lafayette Street to 96. According to the Santos Party House blog:

"...we have been able to recreate the exact same club, only 8 feet further down the block, simply by shifting the walls and parts of the ceiling to accommodate the new location.

Our patrons will notice a slight shift in the sidewalk, as well as a wider stairway leading down to the lower level. As a result of this move, we now have a larger amount of space on the left side corridor of the club. We were also able to shift the entire front entrance and windows of our building, leaving the upper portion intact."

Shockhound Interviews Justice In Bed

Shockhound (which looks like a pretty interesting new site for following artists) recently interviewed Xavier and Gaspard of Justice from their hotel room bed. Yet another enlightening and entertaining (much like the duo's documentary, A Cross the Universe, which is out in the US in 5 days. Did you pre-order your copy ?!) experience:

Transcript of the interview if you'd rather read it here.
