Fake Blood 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009

If synths were straight razors, then London's shadowy Fake Blood would be the blogosphere's Jack the Ripper, driven toward riff-fueled rampages. His weapons are serrated, even if his cut-up production is surgically exact. Fake Blood was a big Beat producer fond of funk samples in the late '90s, but he now looks to 1992 for anthemic inspiration, mixing breakbeat 'ardkore's rough 'n' tumble loops with tech house precision. Fake Blood tears up the clubs, splattering crowds with chipmunk chords, climax-embossing drums, and air raid bass.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
