MOAR music!

Really digging the electro/dance vibe these days...
The Bloody Beetroots are an Italian electronica and dance music duo. They wear Venom masks while performing, which is a bit odd but also kinda cool (see some interesting info on the Venom masks here if you don't know what they're about).
Apparently the aim of their music is "to bring punk rock aesthetics into clubland and the electronic medium.". Ok then. It doesn't sound much like punk rock to me... my description would be dirty, glitchy, electro dance. I love it. Have a listen on their MySpace page. My faves are Have Mercy On Us, Storm and Warp 1977. Their album can be downloaded here.

Steve Aoki is an American club DJ, record producer and the founder of Dim Mak Records. Apparently, his dad, Rocky, once said that he had 'three kids from three different women at exactly the same time'. Um... woah. Dim Mak Records has also released music by other electro house artists such as MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots, Klaxons, Scanners, Whitey, Mystery Jetsand Mustard Pimp. Nice. Steve's a cool guy. Apparently, he has also become an accomplished painter, although I wasn't able to find any of his work. Listen to his beats here.
Anyway... His album is cool, but other mixes I've seen on the net that he's done with other people are much cooler. 

Such as this one below, a colab with The Bloody Beetroots. The video's pretty cool...
