Nowadays, anyone with a Macbook Pro and an overwhelming sense of self-importance is a “DJ”. That’s why disc jockey duo Jokers Of The Scene (comprised of Linus Booth and Chris Macintyre) teamed up with Bryce Kushnier of Vitaminsforyou to make the move from just mixing/producing music to actually making it with the emphasis on the LIVE performance (and melting minds in the process).
As Blank Capsule, the Toronto synth pop trio produces tracks that occupy the lightness of disco dance jams with the intensity and gravitas of industrial house. It’s the perfect soundtrack for when mysterious strangers show up uninvited your party, things run a little too late, and stuff starts getting weird…
Check out the mix Blank Capsule crafted for our Pre Party Jamz series! It’s 1.5 hours of spacey summer tunes to heat up any after-hours rooftop soirée. Stream or download it below!

Over here at the NickyDigital HQ, we’re counting down the days until the South By South West music marathon begins! In less than two weeks, we’ll be down in Texas eating tacos, drinking some sort of cheap mexican beer, and most importantly checking out tons and tons of new artists, as well as spending some quality time with our old favorites.
Over the next two weeks, in preparation for SxSW 2010, NickyDigital.com will be bringing you a daily artist or showcase that we don’t want you to miss!
Our bros at Fool’s Gold are not joking about gettin’ crazy at SXSW!
With TWO showcases, Texas Takeover on March 18th and The Fools Gold Showcase on March 19th (larger fliers for both after the jump), there’s going to be some serious business going down.
What I hadn’t realized is that they were actually jammy jamming out a little diddy called Baggy Bottom Boys by the Canadian duo Jokers of the Scene.
DJ Ayres teamed up with Harry Video to bring the truth to our ears and condense the entire plot line of the movie to seven minutes!
