The prolific Izzy Rode ’14 tellz uz:
You, dear, deserve a night of reclamation.
A break from the hetero social life.
A night of demolishing those boxes society keeps trying to throw you
A night of partying among friends.
QUEER PROM 2013
A NIGHT OF GLITTER AND GRUNGE
This has been floating around for a few weeks now, but we thought we should get it up here too.
Ashe Kilbourne ’14, the DJ who goes by the name “Kilbourne,” dropped The Club Giant Squid mixtape recently as an exclusive release on ClubTapes.com, a subsidiary of LiveMixtapes.com. So far, Kilbourne, who produces mostly Philly Club music, has racked up almost five thousand hits on the site, and also comments like “COOL HAIR” and “turnt.”
The Club Giant Squid includes a sweet remix of “Fantastic Baby” and also Kilbourne’s hyper take on Diplo and Nicky Da B’s “Express Yourself.” You’ll also find some Skrillex samples if ya pay attention. The whole thing kinda bangs. It’s a fun listen.
Kilbourne also played two showcases at SXSW (South by South WES, ha!) two weeks ago, where they played with Zebra Katz of “Ima Read” fame. So that’s also pretty cool.
After the jump, check out the video for Kilbourne’s remix of “Fantastic Baby,” as well as the teaser for the mixtape. Check out the whole thing HERE.

Where in the world does Ashe Kilbourne ’14 find these bands!? I don’t know, but as featured in our winter concert preview, a whole buncha grindcore is going down in the Cafe tonight:

Gowl, Weald, Misanthropic Noise, Spinach, and Stone Titan are all playing tonight (Saturday) in the Westco Café.

Today in Wesleyan DJ news, or recently I guess, our own Jason Kilbourne ’14, who DJs under the moniker Kilbourne and is playing this awesomely titled event tonight in Bed-Stuy with LE1F and more, has contributed a new mix to DIS Magazine’s disco series (which has featured past mixes from acts like Salem, NGUZUNGUZU, Venus X, Pictureplane, and Teengirl Fantasy).
Kilbourne, who interned at Mad Decent this summer and is a swell person, writes that the mix is about “taking bath salts I guess, specifically at a wedding, musically it’s about the overlap between Philly Club Music and Hardstyle/Hardcore/Jumpstyle/Etc. or NrG music.”
Some more info from Kilbourne, who knows more about dance music genres than you do (or I do), after the jump:
Hi kids. How’s that summer treating you? Me too, me too.
Anyway, Wesleyan “in every band” musician and hardworking DJ, Adrien DeFontaine ’13, also known as Crook$hanks has been putting out a mix every month this year, each consisting of songs he’s been rully vibin’ to around the time of the releases.
Today’s the end of July, and some of us feared that Crook$hanks had slipped from his release regiment. Were we supposed to go an entire month without dancin’ and groovin’ to a new $hanks mix? This morning at 1:30 AM, Wesleying’s own Zach texted me with his own concerns: “If you don’t post the Crook$hanks mix today, something really bad is gonna happen.”
Luckily, Mr. $hanks emailed me the new mix and all the info at 9:58 tonight!
Note: despite what the poster says, the Bounce workshop is at 8.
Next on Wesleying’s concert series, Eclectic prepares to ignite:
Big Freedia, the Queen Diva of New Orleans Sissy Bounce Music, is bringing her ass-shaking party music to Wesleyan on Thursday, February 9th. At 8 o’clock in the Eclectic Ballroom, Big Freedia will give a workshop on the sacred tradition of bounce music and give hands-on instruction on how to bump to this (directed by Josh Ente ’08).
When that’s over, go home and get fancy, because at 10 the party starts. Opening DJ sets will be provided by Sankofa (Luke Turner-Owens ’12) and Kilbourne (Jason Kilbourne ’14).
