Featuring DJ performances ranging from hot up-and-comers such as Lazer Sword to veteran superstars such as Richie Hawtin to anything- goesNewOrleans'bounce performers such as NickyDaB,BoilerRoom is like on-demand pirate radio for the web. Even Pulp frontman Jarvis Cockerwas caught on camera checking out one of the events recently. Boiler Room www.chicagomusicexchange.com/100riffs/ — Ripping through a hundred riffs in just over 12 minutes, Alex Chadwick from the Chicago Music Exchange takes a pretty serious romp through the history of rock 'n' roll. Sure, there are some riffs that he missed (no BTO?), but he covers a lot of ground, from early stuff such as Chet Atkins'Mr. Sand- man to The Beatles' Helter Skelter right through to Michael Jackson's Beat It,Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and The White Stripes'instant- ly recognizable Seven Nation Army.

Not since The Inward Eye has a local buzz band taken so long to deliver on the early promise of its first recording sessions. Luckily, new single and video Stay Calm is worth thewait.The trackmay not be the old-school block party jam everyone was expecting, but there is an infectious vibrancy to the indie-flavoured cut. Stay Calm is the first single from The Lytics' sophomore albumThey Told Me,which hits the streets on Oct. 16 via Camobear. Video of theWeek:The Lytics – Stay Calm bit.ly/DJ_Shadow_remix — Begun as an experiment to engage his online community, Josh Davis' DJ Shadow Remix Project quickly grew into something much more than he could have expected. At first the San Francisco-based producer/DJ thought he would just pick a couple remixes and stream the winner online, but after hearing the first batch of tracks that came in,he knewhe had do something more with the material. "In many cases, new life has been breathed into songs I had long-since resigned to the past, and made them fresh again," wrote Davis on his website. "You WILL hear these mixes in future shows, and that's the strongest endorsement I can give as a DJ. From one artist to another,thank youfor inspiring me."From NiT GriT's pro- to-bass rework of Building Steam with a Grain of Salt to Fuso's slightly chopped up Midnight in a PerfectWorld, it's easy to hear why Shadow chose to give these away to fans. They're too good to be stuck in the purgatory of a crappy web stream. DJ Shadow performs in Winnipeg for the first time at the Pyramid on Sept. 27. MP3 of theWeek: DJ ShadowRemix Project writer. He can be heard every Tuesday morning at 8:55 a.m. on Virgin 103 chatting about the web. Got a site you think he should see?
