So I finally got around to checking up on the latest movements around the web. It can be pretty daunting at times. The world moves to fast now, If you don’t check the news for a couple weeks fells like everything has changed!
Anyway, I found some gems whilst sifting through well over 1000 pages of internet hype and info.
Firstly this surprisingly, well done project by a chap named Tom Caruana. On the same vein as The Grey Album he has taken samples, snippets, sounds and soundbites from the Beatles and created a whole new aesthetic for the rhymes of the Wu Tang clan.
And low and behold he pulled it off! I’m a huge fan of the Wu and hate hearing bad efforts for remixes. but this is dope!
I actually got put onto this super fun and talented band from Sweden, named Little Dragon by my good Buddy Simon. Later finding out that they played in Vancouver not so long ago. I’m sure it’s always the way, you find out about a group a little to late or see them live when you don’t know them yet.
Oh well I know about them now! From all accounts their live show is phenomenal so i will definatley be looking out for them on my travels.
check this cheeky wee video. It looks very DIY which makes even cooler.
Moustache Men DJs – Hyper Color Mix
I actually got given this mix a few months back and have been wanting to pass it on really badly. As it is one of the dopest mix’s I heard in 2009.
I just love how this mix goes all over the show. Dropping heavy dub tunes, glitched out hip hop, cumbia, dancehall, and even some tropical house cuts. Not to mention their own custom made edits, mash ups, remixes and turntablism.
check out this tracklist. They definitely know how to jam in the tracks!
