Athena developed a passion for deejaying as a teenager and has been a mainstay in Dallas' drum and bass scene ever since. You can find her serving drum and bass platters at Two Tone's Thursday residency at Wit's End in Deep Ellum. But her work and experience aren't limited to that genre. For this week's Dallas Observer mixtape, Athena delivers a Latin-inspired mix. It's a proper floor filler and very likely to encourage sporadic booty shaking. How did you get started deejaying?
Herman Glaspie has never chased the spotlight, but as DJ Junkyard he's a constant presence in the Dallas DJ scene. He’s had his hands on the decks since he was a preteen in the '80s, playing on his father's rig. Glaspie often plays old-school, Detroit-influenced techno. For this week’s mixtape, he comes in rough and ready with a set of bangers that show reverence for the classic '90s rave mixtape in all of its lo-fi glory. How did you get started deejaying? How long have you been at it?
Lee "Scratch" Perry is also known as The Upsetter, The SuperApe or Pipecock Jackson. Deep Ellum Art Co. has been focusing on low-key local shows since it opened two months ago, but it hosted one of its first touring shows, Lee "Scratch" Perry on Sunday night. Along with King Tubby, Perry pioneered the amorphous reggae subgenre, "dub," which rose to prominence in Jamaica in the late '60s. Dub is the earliest form of remix culture.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
