Zout: (2009-2012)Klezmer band, originally Majestic Swifty Hatesyou 2009-2012 featured on the MMM026, which is still for sale:

DJ Hates You (2006-2012) Specializing in crass-appeal and shamelessly exploiting human weakness by blending popular and underground musics of the twentieth century into an aural onslaught. Several residencies in the Pittsburgh area, most notably NEON Thursday night retro party at Belvedere’s Ultra-Dive. Keeping in the spirit of anonymity and multiple names (see also TBA) when DJing had run its course the moniker was passed on to an up and coming dj who was trained to follow the same path.

Some sample mixes are available for download here:
