Here’s a new Clipse track. The beat – good, the flow – fire, the chorus – kinda cheesy. Anyway, here it is.
Also, A TRAK interview tonight with BRENONES. We’ve decided not to ask questions, instead we’re just gonna dick ride him, tell him how great he is and smile at him the whole time, speechless, and see how long that’ll last. What’d ya think?
The Clipse – Warning
I saw this dude a little under a year ago, at last years Rock the Bells, and found that the sound quality alone was so terrible that I couldn’t take a feel from it. I liked his name though. Anyway, I was doing the daily blog roll, and found this on salacioussounds. Anywho, just to add to their post, the imagery is cool, and 10 brownie points, and a dry handjob/fingerbang to anyone who can place that beat, coz I know it’s been used before. It’s a JustBlaze production, so there’s a point in the right direction.
Also, A TRAK interview this Friday, and I need some question tips. COMMENT NUCCAS.
A limited edition vinyl box set has been created by a team made up of Soulwax, UK electrotrash dj Riton, and artist Fergus Purcell (AKA Fergadelic). The side project is called ‘Die Verboten’ and ya kna’, being Swiss and all, I can tell you this means FORBIDDEN.
The box set is called “Live in Eivissa” – named after an 18min track recorded in Ibiza on the A-side. On the B-side one can find a unique laser-etched piece of art. Another wacky feature to be noted is a pop-up pyramid, similar to the ones in our little kiddy books, whose configuration is designed to ‘focus the deep cosmic powers of the vinyl housed inside’. Whoa.
I like this etch, it reminds me a lot of the bright patterned clothing worn in M.I.A.’s Paper Planes vid when she’s dancing down the street wif her entourage.
Here’s a lil sample of Fergadelic’s past work. Known for his stoner aesthetics, skull pieces, humor, sci-fi, and music related graphics. You be the judge:
SPEW - blaahhhhhh
Anyway, Die Verboten is due to come out around the end of June. Only 300 copies are being made. Kudos to Mixmag fo the goods.
WHAT IT DO?
I don’t get it. How in any way did Kid Sister hook up with Reebok to do this track. What, did they pay for the studio time? Where do you draw the line between creating a brand image, creating an artistic image, and selling out?
Well to be real, the line doesn’t exist anymore. I mean, Bad Brains did a shoe with Vans. Aren’t punks supposed to be all anti corporate. If Bad Brains can do it, Kid Sis can too.
Kid Sister re-does the classic Jungle Bros song, I’ll House You with Treasure Fingers, and I guess Reebok. Some how.
I guess since I steal their music, an income has to come from somewhere. Anyway, there’s my non sensical rant.
Here’s the track.
Jungle Brothers – I’ll House You (Kid Sister, Treasure Fingers and Reebok edit)
I scowered the Hype Machine charts for some blog worthy material and found a few bumpin’ tracks.
The first is Boys Noize’s latest offerings. The track comes from a MIXMAG mix, which will hit news shelves in two weeks. To tide you guys over, here’s a single off the mix. It’s the usual headache, head thumping shit from them. I mean that in the best way possible.
Boys Noize – Mixmag
Also, got this from The Cool Kids latest offerings, Gone Fishing. They spit hot fiyahhh. Flows + Beats = Cool Kids. I think they stole the title from some unknown rapper. I think his name is Kane Westy?
The Cool Kids – Champions
your now smokin' with the best
Old Time’s Sake – Eminem Ft. Dr.Dre (right click, save as.)
Another new single from Eminem- off of relapse.
I dont know what to think about this one.
I watched Adventureland the other day. It was good, and went a little something like this.
College student goes home after graduating, works a shitty job, wears what would now be considered ironic clothes, sounds identical to Michael Cera, falls in love with the girl from Twilight, end scene.
Lot’s of throwback feel to it. Lot’s of 80’s rock. I d/l that shit when I got home, thought it would be good to get current music’s/fashion/culture major decade influence going down.
And while the majority of the 80’s influenced music I listen to has that it’s-so-bad-it’s-good feel to it, ironic music (Chromeo etc), The Cure is actually good. So big ups to all those early forty something, late 30’s something people who always gave me that The Cure and The Smiths were “the greatest bands that ever played, that’s real music” speech. It’s not true, but their music was aight.
The Cure circa 1987ish
The Cure circa 2007-ish. Music might be his forte. Age-ing certainly isn't
I’m currently just on the Greatest Hits Collection, but soon I’ll be name dropping obscure b-sides. It’ll take a couple weeks for me to learn the ins and outs of The Cure, but I’ll soon be an “expert” on The Cure obscurity. Look, I already know the cover art for their B-Side collection.
Here’s a couple fatty traxxxxx.
The Cure – Close To Me
The Cure – Boy’s Don’t Cry
