Velocity of Love by D-Pulse

Pure magical funk - Perfect for the autumn season.

I don’t know why, but recently I’ve been finding a good amount of music to make love to – maybe I’ll compile it all for y’all sometime.

The most recent of these baby makin’ songs is “Velocity of Love” by D-Pulse. What makes it so damn sensual is that brass vibration – it sure leaves the heart wondering. I just wish it wasn’t so hard to find more shit like this.

Enjoy with a loved one.

The Weeknd – What You Need

Sexiest Shit You've Never Heard

Fuck is this shit sexy! Ya ever find a song that you could listen to over and over again, and it got better every damn time Well, that’d be this.

Last night I was heading to bed when I randomly hit this on the Hype Machine (it was meant to be). The beat clicked from the start and the vocals were smoother than.. my thought process right now ’cause I can’t think of shit. This may even top GAYNGS‘s “The Gaudy Side of Town” for sexiest love song of […]

Do I Do (U-Tern Disco Edit) by Stevie Wonder

"Yes I got some candy kisses for your lips."

I’m finally getting how to find music I like on SoundCloud. The site’s mostly compiled of DJ’s with a lot of new and exciting talents. A lot of it’s experimental and therefor won’t appeal to a large audience, but there’s still a lot of tracks that will, or at least I hope…

U-Tern’s remix of “Do I Do” by Stevie Wonder is a fresh edit to a classic. It’s got a good build to it and once it tops off, you can’t help but shakin’ yo booty (I did) or doin’ the “white man’s dance”, as my father pointed out.

I look forward to following this stylish Canadian DJ. I really hope he put’s out more remixes to great R&B legends… Bill Withers!

The Recluse (Nero Remix) by Plan B

My new theme song!

I was surfing SoundCloud a few days back, at work, when I ran into this beaut’. It took me sometime to catch the lyrics, but when I did, I realized they spoke the words that I’ve felt for so long.

I do love to rage on the occasion, but sometimes I like going a couple days without seeing anyone – I just get so much more done! And a lot of my friends/family can’t quite understand that. I guess now I can just point ’em to this song :)

The only thing I don’t like about “The Recluse” is Plan B’s rap towards the end. I’ve dealt with a lot of hip-hop artists from […]

I Want to Fuck You by Cee Lo Green

Someone needs to mash these two up.

“I Want You” premiered on a UK radio station a few months back, but we still haven’t seen an official copy out yet. As good as “Fuck You” is, I like seeing a more soulful, sentimental side to Cee-Lo. Hopefully, “I Want You” will be released before The Lady Killer comes out early this December – I really wanna see a mash-up of these two singles!

Until then, give ’em a listen and hit me up with your favorite. And if you’ve got any clue on what’s to come with The Lady Killers, hit me up with that too.

A Strange Arrangement by Mayer Hawthorne

Sounds like something from There's Something About Mary.

I’m starting to realize that new styles of music takes some getting use to. You can’t just jump right in and expect to ‘get’ it – you gotta get a feel for it first.

At first I wasn’t feeling Mayer Hawthorne’s album, A Strange Arrangement, back when it came out in Sept. of ’09. Didn’t really think it was my kind of music, so I let it go. Then I saw the music video for his song, “Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin'” (featured in the full article), on a blog I frequent, and liked it so much I thought I’d give the album another go.

Although I’m still getting use to his pop-style R&B, Hawthorne’s lyrics are smart and fun to sing a long to… too fun to sing to (it’s still stuck in my head!). The entire album may not be full of entirely catchy tunes, like […]

Ryan Olson Interviewed on The Local Show

at his studio in Northeast Minneapolis, high as fuck. (I presume)

This last sunday, The Local Show with David Campbell on the Current did an interview with the mix mastermind, Ryan Olson – founder of GAYNGS, co-founder of Mel Gibson and the Pants, and occasional bass player for Building Better Bombs. I posted it up on here because I’ve been lacking on the interviews, so I thought I’d do the next best thing, steal one!

Check out the recording of the interview in the full article!

When you start listening to the interview, you begin to realize Olson’s voice doesn’t sound quite right; that’s because he auto-tune’d it. It sounds strange (and stupid, to be honest), but after a couple of minutes it’s kinda funny (and still stupid). The interview covers a little about Olson’s past, some talk on GAYNGS and a lot about what he’s currently up to. At least half the show is taken up by Olson’s favorite music from the Midwest – a good eclectic taste. I cut out the second half of the show because Olson’s interview is only the first half. If you want to listen to the second half, go to The Current – more good tunes.

I took a couple of Olson’s best and featured ’em below: two from Mel Gibson and the Pants and one from GAYNGS. Let me know what you think of each song and the diverse sound Olson producers.

It was my original intent for this site, and always will be, to promote Mel Gibson and the Pants, along with a handful of others – and growing each day.

Pretty Young Thing (Demo) by Michael Jackson

A small tribute to the King of Pop.

Banner - Michael Jackson as a kid

About this time last year I wanted to honor MJ’s life, but the site was in its infancy (I was probably still trying to think up a name at this point). So, I decided I would do it for the one-year anniversary of his death (or a little later).

First I wanna get serious before we get to the good stuff: Many people thought of MJ as a child molester because of the allegations in ’94 & ’05. I, however, did not. He may’ve had a completely warped view on what is socially acceptable, but it just didn’t seem in him to think on a sexual level, about anyone. Michael had a lot of shit happen to him growing up, as we all know, and as much as I sympathize for his children’s loss, I truly believe he is better off. Every time I saw him in the news, he seemed tortured by how some thought & treated him. I’m deeply sad to see him go, but he’s positively impacted so many lives with the music he created, including mine. I will be forever grateful to the King of Pop. R.I.P. MJ

I had too many songs to pick from, but I had to go with the original release of Pretty Young Thing. The reason is mainly because it isn’t that well known. Some of you may know of the more popular remake produced by Quincy Jones. But this one is, with out a doubt, the better of the two, as much as some of you may fight me on this one. The words couldn’t be more perfect. Oh, and the singing isn’t too bad either.

No Sweat by GAYNGS

"And now it's all over again... with you."

Banner of GAYNGS members

GAYNGS releases their first album, Relayted, today, so I thought I would feature another song of theirs to kick it off. This may not be “The Gaudy Side of Town“, but it sure as hell has some good vocals (especially the chorus), and one hell of a sax – and you know how much I love sax(ophones). The one thing I didn’t care for, though it’s not that crucial, is that the ending drags on for a while. It’s not necessarily that bad, but I kept on wanting to hear more of those smooth-ass vocals.

I had a little difficulty with classifying what genre GAYNGS would belong to (I think I mentioned this in the previous article on them). I would say soul or R&B, but a lot of the album has some featured artists that range from hip hop to rock. Check out the album on Amazon or hit me up for a link, and tell me what you think (especially if I hit you up with a link!).

The Gaudy Side of Town by GAYNGS

More marvelous Minneapolis music.

Banner of some of the GAYNGS members

I was prett-ay, prett-ay excited about featuring GAYNGS. Not only does the group reside in good ol’ Minnesota, but a one of a kind talent is heading it up, Ryan Olson. Ryan is one of the key members of Mel Gibson and the Pants. If you don’t know who they are, don’t worry, not many/enough people do; however, the group has some of the most talented sons of bitches I’ve ever come across.

But let’s get back to GAYNGS… I had a little trouble deciding what genre to classify the group (it’s not a strong point of mine), but I thought R&B fit best. You could also throw in electro, pop, rock and whatever else, but genres are all tending to mash up these days anyway. From the first song on the album, “The Gaudy Side of Town”, I was hooked. The production on it is phenomenal, and some of the vocals took my breath away, literally (well, not literally, but I wanted to emphasis the point). The only part of the song I didn’t really care for was the vocals @ around two minutes. I don’t exactly know who it is (not a lot of information out there on the album), but I recognize his voice in other songs and he sounded a lot better. Here it sounds like the back of his throat is closed off. Oh well, it hardly takes away from the song, I just needed to put a little criticism in there.

The full album will be released on May 11. GAYNGS will be debuting it at First Avenue & 7th Street Entry on May 14. It’ll be a prom theme based on the last song of the album, “The Last Prom on Earth”. Tickets will be $15 per person, so if you’d like to go… and don’t have a date… I wouldn’t mind a night out on the town ;). You can pre-order at Ticketmaster or at the door. Make sure to check back in, i’ll definitely be featuring more of this fine group.
