DJ Mel with Dublab - Nasty's - May 3, 2010

From the that's how asians do it department... DJ Mel with the Dublab @ Nasty's tonight, May 3rd!

More info:

Dublab is a non-profit music public broadcasting internet radio station based in Los Angeles. They have also been involved with art exhibition, film projects, event production, and record releases. Their broadcast is mostly electronic, noise, ambient, post-punk, and folk music in recorded sessions that are mixed by their DJs. Twice a year they broadcast live for two weeks to raise funds which is known as their Proton Drive. As of Friday, January 2, 2009, Dublab has a weekly radio show on KPFK called, "Future Roots Radio".

Their name is a portmanteau of dubbing and laboratory for the combined meaning: a place of experimenting with sampling music. Examples of this, besides their stream, is their film production Secondhand Sureshots where they gave producers, such as Daedelus, five dollars to buy albums from thrift stores and sampling the music to create new tracks. Another in audio/visual form is Into Infinity a collaboration with Creative Commons[2]. It is a group art exhibition of around a hundred vinyl record sized circular artworks and more than a hundred eight second audio loops. The works are randomly dubbed together and is all made freely available for others to remix and sample, even on the project's website.
