Digital Digging

Couple of good finds from my recent travels through the enormous digital crate that is the internets.

New Madvillain, track. Weird, but dope.

Madvillain – Papermill (right click to download)

Old Mexican cover version of James Brown. Dope, but weird.

Rabbits & Carrots – Give It Up (blah blah to blah blah)

Past | Present | Future

It’s literally two weeks until I hand in my thesis. Current word-count: 0.

But productive procrastination is the name of the game. Yesterday I mixed up a bunch of futuristic space sounds with some ancient rhythms and came up with this. Check it one time.

The Jacksons in Africa

I sort of slept on this Dr. No’s Ethiopium album when it came out a couple of months ago, mostly because the label released it in conjunction with their own brand of fair-trade coffee, which seemed kind of weak. Turns out it’s actually fucking mint. Basically Stones Throw turned Oh No (aka Michael Jackson aka Madlib’s brother aka the dude who made this banger) loose on a stack of old Ethiopian jazz & funk records, and he made beats out of them. Simples. This is my favourite:

Oh No – Juke Joint (right click to download)

Anyways since then, big brother Otis has been getting in on the act too.  The third installment in his one-a-month Medicine Show series is Beat Konducta in Africa, which looks equally super-dope-fresh.

Madlib – The Frontline (Liberation) (you know the drill)

Get ’em here.

Oh, and they’ve done a J Dilla x Serato thing too. Just saying. In case anyone feels the urgent desire to buy me a present…

Guess you’ve got to start somewhere

It’s late, you’re bored, you go looking for some Lootpack videos on You Tube and you find, a Toyota advert? I kind of feel bad now for all the shit I’ve given the Biz.
