Thursday Afternoon is TAVIK’s song choice to help get your weekend started early and “beat” the crowds…

Made up of producer/artist Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and The Shins frontman James Mercer, Broken Bells are a unique mix of musical tastes. Blending hip-hop oriented beats with orchestral yet vibey melodies, they created a sound that is new yet familiar. Listen to “The High Road” off of their self-titled album, and be sure to catch them at Coachella this April.

Past and Present is Tavik’s way of paying homage to the musicians that may have been forgotten, but continue to inspire us today. In each installment we take music from earlier generations and compare it to the songs they influence today.

Roxy Music is one of the greats in the world of art rock, and are well known for their abnormal song structures and overall approach. Contemporary artist Youth Lagoon showed a similar approach in his 2013 album Wondrous Bughouse, experimenting with unusual rhythms and sonic landscapes. Listen to the title track off of Roxy Music’s 1973 album For Your Pleasure, and Youth Lagoon’s “Attic Doctor”.

Thursday Afternoon


Thursday Afternoon is TAVIK’s song choice to help get your weekend started early and “beat” the crowds…

Music has seen a number of concept albums over the years, but not many like Dr. Octagonecologyst. Dr. Octagon, an extraterrestrial gynecologist and surgeon from Jupiter, is an alter ego created by rapper Kool Keith in 1996. Two albums were released under this alias, and featured a continuous narrative. Listen to the song “3000″, and try and catch Kool Keith at Burgerama on Sunday, March 23rd.

Interview with Tavik Ambassador Corey Wilson

Corey Wilson 

How is waking up for morning light and staying up all night for your dj sets working out?

Photography and Music are my two most favorite things in the world. Being able to do both of them in one day is an amazing feeling. It gets pretty exhausting at times but that is what naps are for.

 Best surfboard airbrush that has been punted toward your face while shooting?

Josh Hoyer basically painted the devil on the bottom of his board a couple years ago. It was one of the scariest things I have ever seen coming at me.

The prettiest girls in the world are in-

I am still on the search to find the place. I have heard that Argentina has the prettiest girls but in my eyes Brazil was the best.

Brazil Pools


What’s the best photo you’ve ever shot?

My favorite photo to this date is of Pat Gudauskas on the Gold Coast of Australia. I was standing on these rocks with a wide angle lens and this giant splash of water came up right when he did an air.  Everything came together in the image and created something different than most surf images.

 You’ve been to the Playboy Mansion. Is this as much of a bucket list moment as most guys think?

It is definitely somewhere every man needs to experience. Once you get there you will never ever want to go back home.

Summertime in Newport or Winter in Hawaii?

That’s a hard decision. It comes down to the choice between beautiful girls or perfect waves. Im gonna have to go with Summertime in Newport.

How do you figure out your set list each night – play along with the crowd or chase the trends?

I feel that the music controls the crowd. I like to plan out my entire set to the style of the party.

If you could dj for any party, any time, anywhere what would it be?

Night club in Las Vegas, New Years Eve. All of my friends would have to be there too.

The key to rocking a party is -

Loud music, good sound system, hot girls in the crowd, alcohol being poured on people, and playing music that everyone likes. When you play a sound that sounds like your computer is breaking then everyone stops having fun.

What’s your favorite point-of-view?

I really enjoy taking photos in the water. It is a whole different perspective out there that not too many people get to see.

Past and Present Tuesday March 4

Past and Present

Temples-Pink Floyd

Past and Present is Tavik’s way of paying homage to the musicians that may have been forgotten, but continue to inspire us today. In each installment we take music from earlier generations and compare it to the songs they influence today.

Based in the UK, Temples have been labeled as the newest addition to the modern psychedelic scene. The music tends regurgitate rhythms and chord progressions of early psych albums (Piper at the Gates of Dawn, The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators), and lacks the innovation true psych was once saturated with. While they may not be groundbreaking, they did manage to find an accessible middle ground between pop and psych. Listen to “Colours to Life” off of their 2014 album Sun Structures, and “Lucifer Sam” off of Pink Floyd’s 1967 album Piper at the Gates of Dawn.
