OUT NOW - NASSAU "ERROL FLYNN"
Remixes by Bottin, Altair Nouuveau and Professor LaCroix

Debuting at #35 on Juno's Disco chart this week [yeah!!] and #18 on Traxsource's 20 Nu-Disco Essentials [wooo!!] Nassau's Errol Flynn EP is out now everywhere, complete with a triad of ridiculous remixes and a sweet club edit.

Nassau's original is a tense, dark Italo-disco-house burner with an instant-classic hook gliding over a steady rumbling bass line. On remix duties, Bottin hits you with a spooky uptempo Italo soundtrack, Brooklyn's Altair Nouveau pulls down some epic piano-drenched art disco, and L.A.'s own Professor LaCroix drops a mid-tempo electro funk jam like the Gap Band on horse pills. The ep rounds out with a proper club edit specially engineered for today's short attention spans.

Once again the TBM Records Web Store is offering an exclusive DJ Pack with 24-bit Loops for your creative-commons remixing pleasure. Hit us in our Soundcloud Dropbox and let's hear what you got!

YURI'S NIGHT . WORLD SPACE PARTY 2011
Celebrating 50 Years of Human Spaceflight

I'm pretty sure my year just peaked on Tuesday when I busted out my full DJ astronaut gear and played a bunch of slow-mo space disco for friggin Buzz Aldrin, dude! It's gotta be all downhill from there, cuz that's DOPE.

But the 2nd guy on the moon wasn't the only VIP at our Yuri's Night World Space Party, as this photographic evidence reveals. The Official L.A. party with Subtractive, InSpace, 62 Mile Club and Space Frontier Foundation was wall-to-wall awesome people throwing down great vibes in celebration of 50 years of Human Space Flight!

Thanks to everyone who danced everybody who stopped to say "hey." We can't wait to see you all again... IN SPACE!! (space... space...)

PSYCLE . INSTANT DESERT PARTY at TEDActive 2011

Many many sincere, heartfelt thank yous to {RV}IP Lounge, Subtractive and our friends at the TEDActive conference in Palm Springs for helping us drop what was apparently the livest party this TED dude has ever seen, despite complications with both the terrain and the Palm Springs police force (who were actually very cool, as usual). Everybody was fun as hell, and the spontaneous relocation only made us party harder. So thank you to everyone who came to get down. We want more of you.

Seriously, skip WMC next year and come rock it at TED. These nerds know how to get the fuck DOWN. Believe!

And if you happen to see a mobile, RV-based lounge & karaoke-cabaret rolling around Austin at SXSW this year, you are hereby instructed to get on board, or wonder forever.

MOJAVE DESERT PARTY . HALLOWEEN 2010

Last Halloween we took our people out to the middle of the Mojave desert for a legendary night under the spooky spoooky stars...

In the process we unleashed the terror that is Casanova USA, a five-man outfit most proficient in noisy psychedelic electrodiscopunk improvisation. The band's first ever live performance happened on that unholy night, launching perhaps the raddest and most mysterious desert party since the "Moontribe She Wrote" jam back in '86.

This blasphemous performance was captured on not one but two cameras, and the resulting footage has been combined to create a video that looks... pretty accurate, actually.

FEEL THE TERROR in this two-part video of CASANOVA USA and PROFESSOR LACROIX, live from the Mojave Desert.

TBM RECORDS on YouTube

TBM Records has a new YouTube channel -- check out the Professor LaCroix virtual 12-inches, it's like putting on the record but without any of the portability, warmth, scale, or tactile experience that can make enjoying a fine slice of vinyl such a drag.

Plus, you can't play a record on your iPhone yet.

Stay tuned for far more varied and interesting visuals to come...

PROFESSOR LACROIX hits the airwaves

With a little help from our friends at Lift, TBM drops the Professor LaCroix "DISCODISC" CD on college radio and specialty shows this week, just in time for your sweaty summer disco pool parties.

The quintuple-A-side EP features five tracks from the LaCroix 12-inches, including "I Want My Eight Years Back [Disco]," a new edit of "We Come In Peace," and the thumping Alexander Robotnick remix of "Ion Drive."

Dial up your favorite college DJs and late-night mix shows and request "I Want My Eight Years Back" tonight! Then call them back and say it again but with a different voice, and then keep doing that until you run out of voices. Thanks in advance for that.

"Discodisc" is a promo-only CD and won't be out in stores (cuz... what's a CD again?) but you can fully customize your own LaCroix Discodisc by downloading your favorite tracks from JunoDownload.com.

PROTEST DISCO!

After watching U.S. leaders lie, cheat and steal their way through an eight-year orgy of corruption under the Bush/Cheney administration, Professor LaCroix is speaking his mind on his third single, "I Want My Eight Years Back." Due out on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009, the record's jacket features a searing article summarizing some of the administration's most offensive failures, and includes the 35 Articles of Impeachment for George W. Bush on the back cover, as presented to Congress last June by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio).

While there are no lyrics to either track, the newspaper-style cover article says it all. Turning Bush's "history will decide" mantra back on itself, the article's headline (datelined January 20th, 2009) reads: "History Decides - George W. Bush, WORST PRESIDENT EVER." The op-ed, written by the artist, goes on to contextualize some of the former president's costliest blunders and schemes, illustrating the broad destructive tendencies of the administration. Flip the record over to read the Articles of Impeachment, and the music's message is clear, lyrics or no.

Download "I Want My Eight Years Back" now on JunoDownload.com. 12" vinyl is available at Turntable Lab in New York and Los Angeles.








DEC.01.2008


WE COME IN VINYL

Heads up in January for the next Professor LaCroix single, "I Want My Eight Years Back." TBM Records is celebrating the end of the Bush era with a simultaneous vinyl/digital release of this instrumental protest electrodisco jam on 1.20.09. Dance it off.

PROFESSOR LACROIX - WE COME IN PEACE
