HALLOWEEN: ROTD2 @ GLASSLANDS (AND THE RETURN OF FULL SERVICE!)

October 17, 2009

ROTD2

Exciting announcement, hopefully the first among many (or at least a handful)!

If memory serves, the last time the entire Full Service original lineup set up shop in a club was sometime last spring. Now allow me to blow your mind: as of Saturday, October 31, that will no longer be the case. Wreck Tech, Mike McGill b2b Tackleberry, Herr Jordan Rothlein (aka me) b2b Momo Araki (in perhaps our final appearance under our MO/RDAN moniker), and of course ultimate raev impresario Jack Inslee will be re-forming Wu-Tang style (hopefully more “Wu-Tang Forever” than “8 Diagrams”) to once again bring you our messy, eclectic, utopian vision for dance floor destruction. And because it’s Halloween, expect everything to be just a little weirder and creepier than you remember it.

To all of you naysayers who can’t get behind an incredible sound system if a Bud Light costs $8 at the bar: we feel your pain. Which is why Full Service will once again hold Raev of the Dead at Williamsburg’s epically wacky Glasslands. Beers are cheap and very good, and if memory serves, the DJ booth is underneath a massive painting of a penis or something. Put on a cracked-out costume, grab one hundred of your friends, and prepare to get mowed over by dubstep, disco, garage, house, booty rap, jungle, techno, musique concrète, hypnagogic pop, yacht rock, and probably much more.

DETAILS after the jump! And please come, dammit!

UPDATE: HERR JORDAN ON M+S

July 23, 2009

Word to you people.

Tonight, I (in my Herr Jordan capacity) will be DJing the entire duration of Wreck Tech’s Math + Science Show!

Thursday, July 23, 10:30pm – 1:00 am eastern

WNYU 89.1 FM NY or WNYU.org or iTunes

LLC003: MO/RDAN

February 4, 2009

LLC003

From the indomitable photostream of Calli Higgins

As many Sundays as possible, Momo Araki and I form Voltron-like under our Mo/rdan guise to play each other recent acquisitions, talk shop about upcoming gigs, and generally geek out about techno.

LLC003 (right/control-click to download), an hour-and-one-third snippet of a very loose and thoroughly tripping tagteam mix sesh that went on far longer than my neighbors may have liked, documents one of these oonce-oonce afternoons.  We have decided to withhold the tracklist, but discerning ears might recognize the mechanical, gothic textures of Sandwell District, MDR, and Soloaction, amongst others; a funky house track (and some really dorky filter/panning action) snuck in as well.  I never did a best-of-2008, but the mix’s final moments feature my ultimate emo-Detroit anthem of the year, if not ever.  (Any guesses?)

flu-shot-02-06-09You can catch Mo/rdan at Manhattan’s Club Love this Friday (2/6/09) for the latest installment of Full Service, which bears the seasonally appropriate subtitle of FLU SHOT.  (To paraphrase Lil Wayne, we are ill, not sick, and there is a difference.)  In the interest of keeping things, uh, interesting, we’ll be taking the early (11-12:30) shift, so don’t sleep.  Or rather, don’t over-nap.  Full details over at the Full Service blog.

TONIGHT: MO/RDAN ON WNYU’S MATH AND SCIENCE SHOW

Wreck Tech is one hell of a DJ.  (If you were at Full Service on January 10, then you know what the fuck I’m talking about.)  And his weekly broadcast on WNYU, The Math and Science Show, is one of the finest portals around for rough-hewn, ghettoblasting club music on the Croydon-Kingston-Brooklyn axis.  I mean, you know M+S is f’real because Zomby once canceled a guest spot, and I’ll be damned if that isn’t some kinda rite of passage.

So what will happen when a couple of staid techno fanboys descend on the studio tonight?  I’m not really sure.  But somehow Mr. Tech has entrusted MO/RDAN, my ongoing DJ collaboration with Momo Araki, with guesthosting duties tonight while he’s off globetrotting, so I guess we’ll see.  Expect dubstep-not-dubstep, deep n’ fast techno, tape echo from the bottom of the ocean, and probably a few old Scientist jams.  It will either be totally awesome or an insult to everything M+S stands for.  But we’re seriously shooting for the former, we promise.

In other MO/RDAN news, we’re at work both on a special extended LLC mix and on something a bit more polished to be released on CD!  Hell yes!

In the meantime, though, I’m gonna get back to drinking tea, listening to the new Animal Collective (holy shit dudes!), and trying to kick the cold from hell before tonight.

SATURDAY NIGHT: YEAR OF THE RAEV @ CLUB LOVE

January 9, 2009

n811380_43392977_3484

I have been crazy busy!  And when I’m crazy busy and have a free moment, I tend to be crazy lazy!  So yeah, this post should have happened at least a week ago.

But here we go: Full Service’s latest exercise in debauchery-meets-musical sophistication, Year of the Raev, is this Saturday night (as in TOMORROW NIGHT) at Manhattan’s Club Love.  As the title suggests, this is our one-year (actually more like one-year-and-one-month) anniversary party.  Buy a $5 advance ticket and celebrate joyful misspelling with us.  Music from 10pm, MO/RDAN’s extra-seductive set 2am-close.

Coming January 21: Full Service DJs @ Williamsburg’s Public Assembly… details tk!

Coming very very soon: LLC003!

Coming after the jump: Milk of Paradise’s trippy-ass YOTR youtube flyer!
