Nv Concepts Cancels Another Show

When you thought that the madness would end, it’s only getting worse. NV Concepts was forced to once again, cancel another event. Now this hasn’t been an issue only with NV Concepts recently as Ocean Club has canceled their last few summer shows for September. Even though we can assume that the issues are rising due to the drug “Molly” that has been creating an uproar to the EDM community, they have stated in their letter that “the decision’s goes beyond the substantial financial loss.” Could this be the dark chapter to NV Concepts after years of being active?

Ayn Rand And The Seduction Of The New Right

Because of the ACA, our business is suffering through lower insurance costs for the first time ever. In spite of staff aging up, our provider has lowered our premium costs. We were accustomed to double-digit increases for most of the last decade. 

And now mom-and-pop businesses that make the sacrifice to provide insurance for their employees will have a more level playing field against those businesses that neglect their moral obligation to their workers. Consider this — if your business model depends on a paying a non-living wage and pushing your workers into the safety net (provided by others), then you are not an entrepreneur; you are an exploiter. To borrow a popular hate phrase: You are not a producer; you are a parasite.

I request that you serve the people of Missouri and reject the politics of GOP obstruction at all costs.

REP. HENRY WAXMAN: The question I have for you is, you had an ideology, you had a belief that free, competitive — and this is your statement — “I do have an ideology. My judgment is that free, competitive markets are by far the unrivaled way to organize economies. We’ve tried regulation. None meaningfully worked.” That was your quote.

You had the authority to prevent irresponsible lending practices that led to the subprime mortgage crisis. You were advised to do so by many others. And now our whole economy is paying its price.

Do you feel that your ideology pushed you to make decisions that you wish you had not made?

ALAN GREENSPAN: Well, remember that what an ideology is, is a conceptual framework with the way people deal with reality. Everyone has one. You have to — to exist, you need an ideology. The question is whether it is accurate or not.

And what I’m saying to you is, yes, I found a flaw. I don’t know how significant or permanent it is, but I’ve been very distressed by that fact.

REP. HENRY WAXMAN: You found a flaw in the reality…

ALAN GREENSPAN: Flaw in the model that I perceived is the critical functioning structure that defines how the world works, so to speak.

REP. HENRY WAXMAN: In other words, you found that your view of the world, your ideology, was not right, it was not working?

ALAN GREENSPAN: That is — precisely. No, that’s precisely the reason I was shocked, because I had been going for 40 years or more with very considerable evidence that it was working exceptionally well.

I KNOW HOW YOU LOVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC

Igness should be one of the most difficult people to remix. Having one of the best tracks in the industry. This artist from Netherlands, has a lot to balance already. Back when I was in college (which I won’t divulge just how long ago that was) I had a hard enough time managing my schedule with classes alone.

Igness crafted a melodic progressive house tune that charges with emotions. The added drum work brings in anticipation and a little bit of aggression for the razor sharp synths, which gives this tune larger-than-life feel that will get playtime across the blogosphere for months to come.

You Knew It Had To Happen Best Of 2013

As we close out another year, here is a look back at the great songs that were released this year. I always bemoan how slow and few and far between good songs reach the landscape, so looking back over this list, I was pleased to realize that we actually got some real winners in 2013. I also think it is safe to post this with only a few more days left to go, as we have Beyonce’s surprise album out of the way and I don’t think anyone else has the cajones to try to top that so soon after she did. Sadly, I have picked through the surprise album and nothing stuck like I wanted it to. Yes, it’s a pretty collection of videos mostly of Beyonce chomping gum and flicking her hair, but musically it fell flat.

Country: France, .jpg’>

Today we’re excited to bring you Markus Mayers, who has been published a new track. We talked about inspired tracks that starts off with a smooth bassline and fluttering synths. As it progresses through untreated and pitched down samples, it gets a little more obscure, bringing in breakbeat spattering of drums, synths and samples.

Markus Mayers is an electronic music Dj who makes songs with sounds that everyone can understand to. I predict huge things happening in this year… mark my words.
