Not to keep touting each and every Thursday night gig at Rio Room, but tonight's offering at the Travis Street lounge is again an intriguing one. After recent Thursday night sets from Diplo, Shuttle (the DJ moniker of new Dallas resident Nate Donmoyer of Passion Pit) and others, the Thursday night fun continues this evening thanks to a free-to-attend DJ set from another Dallas-connected act, Ocelot.
The electronic duo, a collaboration between England's Jimmy Welsh and Dallas' Cory Kilduff, has been making a name for itself over the past few years thanks to their own songs' electronic party vibes and their impressive remixes of other artists. Tonight, you can probably expect to hear a little bit of both in the band's DJ set.
Back in March of last year, we interviewed Kilduff about his DJ philosophy.
"I think we all want the same thing," Kilduff told Catherine Downes. "We want to hear tracks on a huge system and just be amazed. People that want to go to a club and hear Beyonce and whatever is on the radio don't make sense to me. I want to hear some new shit. Something that is exciting and a bit forward thinking.
After the jump, grab a free download of the band's infectious early 2010 single, "Beating Hearts," as well as a couple other remixes, some of Ocelot and others featuring Ocelot's takes on songs from Theophilus London and Robyn.
