Scissorkick.com was born within the second wave of music blogs in the late 1990s and is guided by a soundtrack to one mode of contemporary living here in NYC. It is proudly genre-agnostic and on a continuous search for new independent rock and electronic music.
Scissorkick acknowledges that the majority of its content comes from copywritten and protected sources. Scissorkick is an MP3 blog and as such exists solely to promote the artists on its pages. If for any reason there is an issue with posted content, please contact Scissorkick immediately and the content will be removed from the site. Unlike many other blogs who profit from other people's creative output, Scissorkick is proud to be an ad-free blog. No money or advertising revenue is generated from its posts.
We’re looking for people with truly open minds here. If you’ve followed the blog you know the consistent thread hasn’t been genre — we hop around from beats to metal to indie to electronic without blinking — but more the tone of the posts.
Three old mixes from Steve (aka DJ Sema4) going all the way back to 1999 including the excellent Wildlife mix done with Jamie Roberts and Dave Langolf. Totally timeless. Tracks are still amazing 12 years later.
Speaking of new things, the boys in the Bastard Jazz Soundsystem — myself (DJ Sema4), DJ DRM and Paul Diggs — have recently launched a new radio show on BrooklynRadio.net, one of the best online radio stations in this, or any other borough across the globe.
I know I’m shamefully late to the Web 2.0 party (especially considering what i do for a living) but you can now follow Scissorkick on Facebook. I will be updating the page there with news of new podcasts, special posts and events.
Warp recording artist and techno/electro wunderkind Jimmy Edgar will headline the night with support from recent BK transplant Eliot Lipp and Boston’s Matters & Dunaway, who will be playing the party for the third straight year. Maniacs!
