Just came across this official video Yuna did for the TWINSMATIC remix to her “Live Your Life” single and now I’m on a hunt to find out more information about these producers. Their Soundcloud page is blowing my mind right now. Heavy.
This is undoubtedly one of my favorite records of 2010 (and will surely make SNSS‘ Best of 2010 tomorrow night), but the only question is: which version is better? This remix or the original with Devin? Tough call. In the meantime, enjoy the visuals…
Looks windy. And dope. Props to Derek Pike.
Not only did Ms. Monae hook up a dope remix to her “Tightrope” record, but she also got the crew together for a quick video. Just for the record, has anyone seen her guitar player, Kellindo, and Andre3000 in the same room at the same time?
Yes, I’m late posting this video. No, I don’t care.
Recently, I’ve been playing this Miike Snow album non-stop and it’s really impressive. I seem to be on a “white guy singing, possibly with a foreign accent or falsetto of sorts, about semi depressing, ethereal topics” kick. *Kanye shrug*…sue me. I’m sure I’ll get back into my backpack hip-hop mindset soon, but for now, enjoy some different ish.
Shout to my man Soul Supreme at Potholes In My Blog for giving me the heads up on the Mark Ronson “Animal” remix. We rocked this on Sound Session a few times and I’m a sucker for anything dub related.
Are you there Jah? It’s me Ras Trent.
I don’t know the back story behind it, but this is crazy. “Comprised using chords, bass notes, and vocal samples” from one of the best films of ’09, Up.
Sidenote, just saw Up In The Air, which was fantastic as well. Next up is Avatar, but I need to wait until the furor around the 3D IMAX shows dies down a bit…
My favorite track of the month is easily Mayer Hawthorne’s remix of James Pants’ “Thin Moon,” and the fine folks at Stones Throw have given me the go-ahead to post it up for y’all.
James Pants ft. Mayer Hawthorne – “Thin Moon (Remix)”
EDIT: Apparently there was a mix up and the label has now asked for the song to be removed. If you got it, lucky you. If not, you can always tune into Sound Session this week to hear us run it over 100K watts.
Mood music. Enjoy.
This dude is so ill on the drums. Ridiculous. Download link courtesy of the Dopehouse.
Oh, and for the record: after further inspection, Lil Wayne remains thoroughly outclassed on this track.
Since I’m gonna run this on Sound Session tomorrow, I figured I’d post up this quick mix I made combining Timbaland’s “Say Something” featuring Drake with the freestyle that Lupe murdered last week. Someone’s verse had to go…sorry Tim.
Clean included for my fellow DJ’s.
For those who aren’t aware, the talent in Seattle is crazy right now. One of my favorite releases of the year, local or national, was Fresh Espresso‘s Glamour, and Rik Rude & P-Smoov just enlisted Grynch, Macklemore, and Gatsby for the remix. Video by Stephan Gray. Bananas.
