Kanye & Jay-Z have teamed up once again for what’s rumored to be a 5-track EP, entitled Watch the Throne, with an expected release date sometime in March. So until Kanye’s GOOD Fridays start dropping again, we’ve got a teaser of Watch the Throne‘s first single – H•A•M (Hard as a Motherfucker).
Now, as much as I was anticipating their first single, I wondered what Kanye & Jay-Z would do with a track titled H•A•M. Hearing it stood for Hard as a Motherfucker, my first thought was wouldn’t it be H•A•A•M […]
There may have been a lot of criticism on the last song I posted of DOSVEC’s – even though it reached #1 on The Hype Machine – but his ability to enthrall me in contemporary rock & R&B vocalists through electro-heavy beats is sincerely impressive.
Check out DOSVEC’s mashup of Dave Darell’s “Children” & One Republic’s “Apologize”. I think he may have even one-upped Timbaland in how to handle One Republic’s original, but that may be saying a little too much just yet […]
This Ninja Tune release features five Bonobo tracks, mostly remixes. It’s no Black Sands, but it’s a healthy dose of Bonobo and that hip-hop infused scenic sound of his.
I’m still trying to find my current tastes in rock and of course I’m leaning towards the electronic induced rock. DeeJayFen’s remix of “Lisztomania” is a relaxing, trip-hop taste on Phoenix’s original, and brings in a nice kick, as well. I still don’t prefer Lil’ Jon’s cameo, but in the least it doesn’t take away from the song.
How I haven’t featured these two white pandas before, I don’t know – I mean, they’re one of the groups that turned me onto BandCamp in the first place. I guess I was waitin’ for something new to lay down for y’all.
The White Panda released a new track on SoundCloud and it’s one hell of a dubstep mashup. Of course I’m a sucker for Lil’ Wayne reworks – he could take some production advice from peeps like these and the many others that have done justice to Weezy’s rhymes […]
My 2011 is starting out not so great – sick ‘n’ working. Musically, however, it’s starting out quite fuckin’ nicely. I’ve had a rush of good artists come my way and I’m eager to show ’em off (pending how sick I get).
First up is a duo from Hungary. I haven’t tapped too much into the Hungarian market, but this sure is one hell of an intro. Not only that, half the duo is female! It’s quite difficult to find good female producers in this jockage filled genre, but it’s damn refreshing (and sexy) when you […]
Before we lay Electro City to rest, we still have the final track to bring in the New Year! With one of the best flows to ever hit the remix community, Timbaland tears it up with on this Pretty Lights track.
In this remix-mashup, PL samples Timbaland’s “Give It to Me” & Animotion’s pop hit, “Obsession”. I actually noticed that an instrumental in Animotion’s “Obsession” was sampled in Nine Inch Nails “Closer”, that instrumental always defined “Closer” for me. Anyone else ever notice that Just a little something I found interesting in my research into these 5 set of songs.
One thing I’ve also been wondering is why PL never released […]
Late last night I was contacted by an employee of Pretty Lights Music informing me that Electro City was, in fact, never an official album (released or otherwise).
When I first started researching this EP, I had a feeling it may not have actually been compiled by PL, but I did know this – these tracks were produced by him. So I thought I’d get ’em out there hoping to stir up a conversation and, in the least, let as many people know about these amazing set of songs as possible – not giving much thought on whether Pretty Lights or just some random fool compiled them. In the end, these tracks were too damn good to not […]
As we continue our countdown to New Years with Pretty Lights’ unreleased EP, Electro City, I decided to skip the third track, not because it isn’t good, but because it’s so damn good that I’m saving it for last. So, on to track #4…
When I first started listening to Pretty Lights’ “Everybody Walk”, my first reaction was “no fucking way! PL just remixed some Prince” – I always thought they would make a sick combo. Prince’s original, “The Walk”, features a group known as The Time and as fresh of a remix as it is, this shit gets hardcore 80’s (or early 90’s) in the end – ya gotta hear it to believe it (@ ~4:40). It’ good for a laugh, though, and makes the song that much better to do “The Walk” to.
Have fun with this and get ready for two even greater tracks to do “The Walk” to.. or, well, to dance to on New Years Eve!
