Somewhere in between performing finger-tapping choreography in a cell phone commercial and compiling a Sitar Songbook for my DJing gig at the New York Botanical Gardens, I’ve been doing a lot of writing for Alternet.org. The two-part article that I did on Harmony Korine’s fantastic new film Spring Breakers has been trending pretty heavily, with part 2 appearing on Salon.com and making the top 10 most popular on Alternet. Be warned: this article goes pretty deep, looking beyond the film into the reality of youth, sexuality, and exploitation—from Girls Gone Wild to Backroom Casting Couch. It took a lot from me to write it.
Another article I wrote outlines various subgenres of Electronic Dance Music, and is helpful reading for anyone trying to decipher dubstep or pinpoint the difference between house and techno.
Here are links to them all:
