I’m gonna haul ass to Lollapalooza!

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

It is that time of the year again, Lollapalooza beacons me! I’m stoked for The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Arctic Monkeys, Dan Deacon, Passion Pit and oh yeah, who’s that other group?

Oh that’s right, motherfucking Depeche Mode!

I’m so excited I might shit. I should pack extra shorts.

Sorry for that unneeded comment. Long time visitors of this site know that my blog kind of shuts down for Lollapalooza, so don’t expect another update until the end of next week, since I’ll be busy writing about Lollapalooza. If you can’t wait for my amazing recap you can check out last year’s at to wet you appetite and you can follow me on Twitter that weekend, where I will occasionally be posting worthless comments. Yes, I know I’ve bashed Twitter, but it is a convenient way for me to take notes, I sure as hell am not going to take my laptop to that place. It’s certainly a better use for the site than what I’ve used it for in the past, which is to engage in meaningless Twitter fights with idiotic manic-depressing Trent Reznor stalkers who never go outside and find joy in the death of heart patients.

Long story. Anyways, enjoy the tunes. Sorry I haven’t gotten around to the second half of that Janet Jackson post, I will soon I promise.

Die Krupps with Nitzer Ebb
The Machineries of Joy (WahreArbett Mix)
The Machineries of Joy (Die Krupps Mix)
The Machineries of Joy (True Work Mix)
Join the Rhythm of Machines

I know very little about Die Krupps, and I only know slightly more about Nitzer Ebb. I do know that this song kicks ass though, makes me want to punch someone, which admittedly isn’t that difficult right now. These are from a 12” single.

The Jungle Brothers
I’ll House You ’98 (Anthony & Skribble Vocal Club Mix)
I’ll House You ’98 (Anthony & Skribble Feel da Drum Mix)
I’ll House You ’98 (Peter Presta’s Vocal Mix)
I’ll House You ’98 (Original Girl I’ll House You)
Jungle Brother (True Blue) [Urban Takeover Remix]
We Got It Goin‘ On (Urban Takeover Mix)

I don’t know what “I’ll house you” means, but it sounds dirty, so I support it. I guess it makes sense, you can “rock” someone after all. I think we should start making other musical genres verbs. This weekend I plan will “electro” someone, then if anyone gives me grief about it I will “new wave” them. It’s the only way they’ll learn. They just better hope I don’t “tech-house” them, they might never walk again.

And on that retarded note wish me luck in my trip to Chicago. See you all next week.

DnB Hip Hop and stuff (too tired for title)

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

My god am I having a shit week. Anyone else out there watch the Michael Jackson Memorial? Anyone else out there sob uncontrollably when Paris Jackson took the mic at the end? I didn’t…nope…not at all…I just had…um…allergies. Yeah, that’s it.

I was happy to see the response to my post about eMusic. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only person who noticed their bullshit. If you’re like me and used eMusic to pick up electronic music I recommend checking out BeatPort, they’ll a little pricier than eMusic but their selection is amazing, great sound quality too.

Not a lot to say about the music tonight, I got some good shit coming up either later this week or early next week, including more Michael Jackson. I know I said I wouldn’t post anymore but I just picked up some sweet 12” singles that must share. Until then enjoy some alternative hip-hop and gay synth-pop.

A Tribe Called Quest vs. AK1200 Buggin‘ Out (One Too Many Joints Mix)
Boogie Down Productions vs. Mark Pritchard – Necessary (Mark Pritchard Mix)
FuSchnickens vs. Pimp Juice – Ring The Alarm (Pimp Juice’s Magic Mix)
Whodini vs. DJ Swingsett & J. Warrin – One Love (High Bias Mix)
These are from a 12” called Old School vs. New School Vol. 2. I have Volume 1 somewhere but it’s all scratched to hell. Maybe I’ll dig it out of my crates one day and try to re-record it. These are pretty bitchin‘ remixes, they take these old school rap songs and transform them into crazy drum and bass tracks. I particularly dig the remix of “Ring The Alarm.” On a related note, I frequently get asked to recommend good new drum and bass so I thought I’d give a shout out to the new compilation by Hospital Records Sick Music. Very diverse collection of some of the best that amazing label has to offer. Pick it up.

Pet Shop Boys
“Brits” Medley
This isn’t the actual medley that the Pet Shop Boys performed at the Brits, it’s a studio version of it. It was a bonus track for anyone who pre-ordered the iTunes version of the album. That’s 2x the exclusive and 2x the BS for those who don’t use that shitty service.

Jungle Brothers
Jungle Brother (Stereo MC’s Mix)
What “U” Waitin‘ “4”? (Jungle Fever Mix)
I’ll admit my ignorance and confess to my complete lack of knowledge when it comes to The Jungle Brothers, aside from the fact that they are totally awesome and that I need to buy Done By The Forces Of Nature sometime very soon. These are from a couple of 12”.
