REBORN :: The Suns / When We Were Us EP

So, I was sent a message from a random person tonight on Facebook. They asked me to vote for a band The Suns on a Chicago magazine poll for The Deli for next months featured artists. Normally, I would ignore this kind of random message. This time, I actually clinked the link and checked out all the bands and I definitely voted for these guys. They deserve all the praise they can get. My favorite from the tracks available on their bandcamp page was Strangeland. I don't know if anthem is the appropriate term to use, but this song really hits you in the gut, then it breaks down and returns to hit you in the heart ... the refrain - "in my heart, you will be forever mine could describe how this song makes me feel about music, when I hear a song as good as this ... the reason I write about and share music. I only wish I still lived in Chicago, so I could go see them live. Maybe, they will swing my way.

Oh, and go vote for them.

Pete Wingfield - 18 With A Bullet {Original 1975 HQ Audio}

English keyboardist Pete Wingfield has done session work with numerous rock, blues, and R&B acts, among them Freddie King, Jimmy Witherspoon, the Hollies, and Van Morrison, as well as being a member of the Olympic Runners. A fixture within the music industry -- especially in England -- from the early to mid-'70s, his fame before the public has derived from his fine single "Eighteen with a Bullet" for Island in 1975. While it only reached number 15 on both the pop and R&B charts the week of November 11, 1975, "Eighteen with a Bullet" was actually number 18 with a bullet on the pop chart. It was also a charming, expertly bit sung of falsetto soul.

BLOW YOUR THONG OUT :: Chris Lake & Michael Woods - Black Thong

This one really gets me hyped! Chris Lake has always been a favorite of mine since he brought one of the greatest progressive tunes ever - Violins a few year back. This time, he pairs with Michaels Woods to bring what might be the floor filler of 2013. Starting with a progressive house melody of synths and piano ... the drop then brings us to electro and bass. This might sound like two songs, but it actually works.

Last Lynx - Killing Switch / ALASKA EP

Music changes so fast these days, who can keep up? Well, we sure have a good time trying. Like a new dish you've never tried ... it's great when a new tune like Killing Switch comes along. There's no fancy gimmick here. No wub wub, moombah or trap. Just plain good sounds. Last Lynx released the debut EP - ALASKA last December to little fanfare, which is just a shame, because it's damn good. You'll find all the tracks below, plus a bonus Killing Switch remix.

I'm definitely looking forward to more from these guys ... and what's with all this talent coming out of Sweden?!?

CLASSIC SOUL :: The Temptations - Just My Imagination

In the early 1960's, popular music was expanding as Rock took hold of the mainstream... so did R&B and Soul. One of the biggest acts of those genres and maybe the biggest act on the Detroit based label - Motown was The Temptations. They created the Motown sound which was not only R&B and Soul, but also came to be Cinemtatic and Psychedelic Soul, Funk, Disco and Adult Contemporary. The Temptations preached that Papa Was A Rolling Stone, I'm doing fine on Cloud Nine ... and that true love was possible even if just during the course of a song with My Girl and Just My Imagination. The Temptations were a team effort with most songs being sung co-lead while the rest of the act brought us that beautiful harmony we all know and love.

[Got Jokes] Hot 97.5 Parody's Trinidad James with Trinidad Jerome [Music Video]

I'm not sure if you're familiar by now with Trinidad James or not. He's slowly taking over the bloggersphere and social media everywhere. There is also much debate on whether or not his attention is worth our time, as critique by many big name Hip-Hop world. However James has recently signed a major deal with Def Jam for $2M so his efforts have gotten him someones attention.

This video however, brings up a good comparison of Trinidad James and alter-ego of Martin from the legendary sitcom back in the 90's. Hot 97 personalities went in on James on this one...almost kind of exposing him. Enjoy

Way back in 2011, my life was going to shit. I had left my girlfriend of 10 years, went thru a rehab treatment for drugs and alcohol and was living in a halfway house. For those who don't know ... the rules of the house are to stay sober, attend an AA meeting once a day and we also had a 10 PM curfew. Around the the 3rd week of my stay, I saw that Jonsi was playing nearby. I was always a big fan of Sigur Ros and I was determined to see Jonsi with someone special. I bought two tickets and really had no idea who to invite. I met my friend Wendy at a birthday party. We had a really good discussion about libertariansim, we remained friends online and when the time came I had invited her to go with me (as just friends). What happened next was just incredible, now Wendy had never heard Jonsi or Sigur Ros ... which was perfect.

As we sat in the upper bleacher seats of the Vic theatre, I could have never anticipated what would happen next. The show was incredible. We both wept and laughed and then cried again. The music and the images were so emotional that we hugged and cried and hugged some more. In the end, we heard that Jonsi was inviting some of the audience back stage, so I tried to bribe my way back, but alas my curfew was coming up, so I bought Jonsi's album on vinyl, said hello and goodbye to some familiar faces and left. I called the house to see if I could get a little more time and to my surprise, they said OK. As Wendy and I sat in a diner drinking coffee, one thing was clear ... this night had changed our lives. I miss you Wendy! I hope you are well.

REMINISCENT :: Porter Robinson - Language

One of the biggest underground hits of 2012 ... Porter Robinson brings us Language. This song is part trancer, part electro, all HEART! Chapel Hill, NC native Porter Robinson was influenced by Dance Dance Revolution and other video games. In 2011, he aligned with Srillex's OSWLA and released an EP titled Spitfire. Spitfire reached the number one spot on the iTunes Dance chart as well as the number one spot on Beatport's overall release chart. As a DJ, he has toured internationally and performed alongside artists including Deadmau5, Tiesto, Skrillex, and many more.

He kinda reminds me of Madeon, to be honest ... and I mean that as a compliment.

DRIP HOP :: 100s - Slow Drip

Hip Hop just keeps getting weirder ... and if you ask me that's a good thing. For real! It got so formula for a while, I couldn't take it. Emerging from the ether as mysterious as he is imposing, Berkeley, CA rapper 100s makes his debut with the project 'Ice Cold Perm'.

Merely a reckless young black man in the eyes of a broken society, 100s has taken it upon himself to thrive. At 19 years old, he arrives a true student of the game: a living, breathing, smoking tribute to the long line of West Coast players.

Teaming up with local powerhouse producer, engineer and childhood friend Joe Wax (Turf Starz, Main Attrakionz, NhT Boyz, Lil Rue), Ice Cold Perm is laced with smooth slaps and icey raps, their unique chemistry taking listeners on a skewed ride through a young man's mind ... where the potency of your Activator is the currency of the realm.

Tranquility Bass - They Came In Peace

One of the original innovators in the ambient/trip-hop movement, Tranquility Bass aka Mike Kandel submerged for most of the '90s before finally issuing his debut album in 1997. Kandel grew up in Chicago but moved to Los Angeles in the early '90s; inspired by his hometown's acid-house ideals, he formed the Exist Dance label in 1991 with Tom Chasteen and began producing classic ambient-house singles like "They Came in Peace" (available on Mo'Wax's original Headz compilation) and "Mya Yadana" (from the influential first volume of the Excursions in Ambience series). After Chasteen left Exist Dance in 1993, Kandel released a label compilation named Transmitting from Heaven but then disappeared to a remote island off the British Columbian coast to begin work on his debut album. Two years later, after trip-hop's influence had spread far and wide, he emerged from seclusion with Let the Freak Flag Fly, an album that reconciled his electronic fantasies with elements of psychedelia, funk and blues.

LONG LIVE BMORE :: Emynd - But It's Alright (download)

I was just watching "The Wire" season 4 and it got me thinking about some of the best music around - Baltimore or Bmore Club music. Philly based Emynd has been creating some of the best Bmore Club, New Orleans Bounce, Old School Electro, Bass and Funky House tracks for years. He has released tracks on the labels FLAMIN HOTZ, EQUINOX, Diplo’s MAD DECENT, the legendary Baltimore Club label UNRULY RECORDS, and forthcoming work on CROSSFADED BACON and worked with artists such as Gucci Mane, Diplo, Lil B from The Pack, Finland's Top Billin crew, Them Jeans, Scottie B, Playboy Tre, G-Side and the Paper Route Gangstaz, Roc Nation's Young Chris, NOLA Bounce producer Peacachoo, Pase Rock, Eli Escobar, South Rakkas Crew, Reef the Lost Cauze, and many more. Emynd isn't just some new up and comer. Make sure that you check out all his new and older cuts on his Soundcloud page.

In this track he puts the Emynd flavor on one of my all time favorite tracks Cymande - Bra. But It's Alright will have you jumping in the air saying YEAH!!!!

The Future from Eclectic Method on Vimeo.

Eclectic Method has created a video montage from movies depicting the future. What does the true future hold? Will it be closer to a Utopia or an Orwellian nightmare? Time has shown that technological advancements are not developing as fast as they are portrayed in the movies. Why is that? Do we hold onto the past too strongly? Maybe it's easier to dream than to build.

Capital Cities - Nothing Compares 2 U (download)

An excellent, excellent cover of Sinead O'Connor's song. Partnerships born out of a Craig’s List ad rarely end well, and being dubbed the “best band in Los Angeles” by Perez Hilton can be a dubious distinction—unless you’re talking about Capital Cities. Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, the front men behind the breakout pop-rock group, are a success story spawned by the Internet that has continued to blossom. The Los Angeles-based act, which boasts a five-piece live set, took both the blogosphere and the shores of California by storm with 2011’s debut, self-titled EP, and haven’t looked back since. Lead single 'Safe and Sound' shot to #2 on The Hype Machine and #1 on South American radio, which helped the band tour that continent, twice. This year’s 'Kangaroo Court' was a worthy follow up and has erased any doubt that Capital Cities is a one hit wonder. Their electronic-infused pop rock represents all that is right in modern music making and makes the perfect soundscape for a day at the beach--or a night in the dark part of town--as long as you’re ready to dance.

Leave it to Dutch DJ's - The Partysquad aka Jerry Leembruggen and Ruben Fernhout to create some of the most banging tracks and remixes in EDM today. They've been around for 8+ years ... released EP's on Mad Decent and have created the hallmark Dutch House and Reggae Fusion sound. I have loved them since I first hear The Partysquad Crazy Funky Style(Elmo Is Dead remix). On this track, they give it a go on Clockwork's Titan single and the results and smashing.

It's my hope that he'll continue to put out good music. I bring you the sounds of RuddyP.

My good friend and roommate picked this record up back in the day at the now defunct Tower Records. I would get high as fuck and listen to this track in its many remixed formats over and over. This one came out in 1996 on the Hardkiss label and I suspect that T Tauri is one of the many pseudonyms for Gavin Hardkiss. The Hardkiss label was the shit back then releasing such treasures as God Within and Rabbit in the Moon.

He's been invited to speak at the White House, amongst some controversy, and he's been involved in a feud with West Cost rap group Westside Connection on some lyrics in "I Used to Love H.E.R.". Rumor has it that he's dropping a new album in 2013.

Despite everything that he's done, I still think his second album Resurrection is his greatest work. Enjoy this track from that album - Communism which is still as fresh as the day it was made.

Angels & Airwaves - LOVE parts 1 and 2 (FULL ALBUM)

Angels & Airwaves have a new movie out called Love. It's an incredible storyline consisting of several separate characters. The main guy is trapped on a space station after the destruction of the earth. So throughout his years of being stuck up there, he sees the Earth starting to collapse below. He ends up basically becoming the last person alive. And then decades later, he wakes up one day and there's something outside of his spaceship, in low Earth orbit with him.

DJ Shadow - The Simpsons Breakbeat

DJ Shadow can do no wrong in my eyes. This student and teacher of the drums proves that anything, and I mean anything sounds better with a nice break beat over it. You may have heard about his recent incident in a Miami club where he was ejected from the DJ booth for not playing mainstream music. This was the same trendy club that booted Dennis Ferrer a few month's ago for the same reason. Shadow's reponse was -
“I don’t care if I get kicked out of every rich kid club on the planet. I will never sacrifice my integrity as a DJ…ever AllBassesCovered”.

Instagram reserves the right to sell or otherwise use photos for its benefit, according to its new user agreement. (Source: MGN)

So, apparently around January 15th of 2013, the very popular photo app "Instagram" will have the right to sell the pictures that you upload for financial gain. Think of it as.."Instagram is becoming a source for stock photos"  or maybe entirely private, and potentially harmful reasons. Just something to think about.

-----Ghost Hand---


It can't be denied that the 1970's brought us some of the best music ever from rock to glam, funk, disco, punk and even hip-hop. The 70's even produced me during the year when the Watergate scandal was in full swing, lite beer was introduced to the US and the first handheld cellular phone call was made. The decade was full of those fed up by war and the hippie movement. Cocaine was the new drug of choice and people wanted to dance. Soul Train was born. The synthesizer was used more and more and the early stages of electronic music came to be. Here are a few gems from the 1970's to help you remember your roots:

Riff Raff & Dame Grease Hologram Panda [Download x Stream]

Only on the rarest of days could RiFF RAFF drop his mixtape Hologram Panda produced by the legendary Dame Grease. One of two mixtapes planned for release before his Diplo produced Mad Decent debut album.With 12 new tracks covering everything you love about RiFF, slow burners, ratchet bangers and that Jody Highroller stream of conscious. With the year coming to a close RiFF is setting up to have one hell of a 2013.

This track, Peppermint Tint, is the leading track from the mixtape. It shows RiFF RaFF preparing for the winter holidays in very swag Santa Claus gear. Candid effects and RiFF RaFF's energy make this a decent video.  @JodyHighRoller www.maddecent.com  ----Ghost Hand----

WHO'S YOUR DADDY :: Benny Benassi - Satisfaction (RL Grime Remix)

Yeah, we like this. WE LOK IT A LOT! LA based, RL Grime takes this classic track on a "rollie coastie" ride. Dare I say --- it's better than the original!

Go ahead and listen ... wait for the drop ... then listen again and again and again. We still are over here.

MASH DONE RIGHT, NO SCRUBS :: BASTILLE feat. Ella - No Angels (The xx vs TLC)

What makes a good mash-up? Well, let's say that you would never know it was a mashup unless you had heard at least one of the original songs in it's original context beforehand. London based Bastille gives us the perfect example ... and when it comes to good mash-ups ... we don't want no scrubs!

DAMN HOT :: Hot Chip - And I Was a Boy from School

Hot Chip - Boy From School by Hot Chip

Hot Chip has been making some Hot Shit since they formed in London in 2000. And I Was a Boy from School or Boy From School as it was later shortened to, appeared on their second album - The Warning and has been covered by Portastic, Maritime and Grizzly Bear.

The song is a real gem from their catalog. It has a smoothed out electro disco feel and it's perfect for driving fast. It was listed at #29 on Pitchfork Media's top 500 songs of the 2000s.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT :: Teen Daze (download)

Ah Canada ... land of buds and maple syrup. "The Great White North" has produced a ton of incredible artists from Chromeo to Jokers of the Scene, A Tribe Called Red, A-Trak, Caribou, Datsik, Crystal Castles and Kid Koala. Recently, Teen Daze from British Columbia popped up on my radar. Teen Daze has been producing tracks and remixes since 2010, with a optimistic and futuristic feeling.

I've decided to share a few of my favorites below. The first, a remix of Giraffage & XXYYXX's trap heavy Even Though is definitely my jam. Teen Daze takes the original to another level by bringing up the synths and then breaking down to a 4x4 beat. You'll find a download link underneath the video. The Future is a mood enhancing trancer with luscious vocals. What You Feel is a pie in the sky disco track, while the last track is a gorgeous remix of Tycho's called Hours. Listen and show some love.

14. Beneath 1:01:41
15. Today 1:05:48

Back in the early 90's, after I had graduated high school ... I came across this album in a used music store. The sound that would eventually be termed shoegaze was nowhere more polished than on this album. I would play this on repeat and listen to it in the morning, during the day and at night while going to sleep. These sounds got me through some very tough times being in another country at the time ... away from everyone that I cared about. Just listen to "Polar Bear" and tell me that you don't get shivers.

This was Ride's debult album released in 1990, then reissued in 2001, 2010 and 2011. Nowhere was named one of the best albums of the shoegaze genre and was listed in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

Ride ceased to be a band in 1996.

TNGHT + Kanye West - Cold @ Music Hall of Williamsburg NYC 11-30-2012

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of TNGHT ... they are truly redefining hip hop and electronic music for the next generation. It seems they are catching the attention of a ton of folks out there. Check out the live video above from their performance of "Cold" (aka the track formerly known as “Theraflu”) in Willamsburg, Brooklyn where who else but Kanye West aka Yeezy World Peace comes on stage and drops the mad science. All I can say from my jealousy ridden mind is ... fuck ya'll Brooklyn!

Knife Party - Internet Friends (heRobust's Run Da Trap Bootleg) (download)

Is trap just getting hotter or what ... will it outlive Dubstep as a music fad? It's hard to say but if artists like Atlanta based heRobust keep making great remixes, the genre could last a while. Check out his remix of Knife Party and his other tunes on his soundcloud page.

SEXY AND SMOOTH LIKE SILK :: Don Diablo ft Noonie Bao - M1 Stinger (Monsieur Adi Remix)

French Producer Monsieur Adi has been making quite the rounds lately with his superb remixes. On this one he gives Dutch artist Don Diablo's tune the royal treatment. My only wish were that it were a little longer, alas repeat.
