I've never been a big fan of guest DJs—unless they are actually, you know, DJs—but this weekend at Rotture will feature a pair of (possible) big names to spin into the early morning hours. Following Friday's Reflection Eternal show at the Aladdin, Talib Kweli will be swapping roles with DJ Hi-Tek and spinning at an "official" afterparty. Not sure what Hi-Tek does while Talib spins? Take the mic to spit some lines? Drink at the bar? Text Mos Def?
As for Saturday's special guest DJ, rumor was that LCD Soundsystem was going to spin at Supernature. What the what?!? Then it came out that it might not be James Murphy himself, but possibly members of his touring band. Oh. When reached for comment, Rotture's Conrad Loebl gave us this vague reply: "member(s) of LCD will be spinning after their show." Well, there you go.
