Alex B 'Getting to Know You'



Sexy and shuffling. Spaced out and smooth. Perfect for a Spring day.

Alex B 'Getting To Know You'

Eighties Ladies



Soul Jazz are issuing this seminal super-rare rare-groove album produced by Roy Ayers originally released on his own Uno Melodic label in 1983.



This amazing one-off album featured the group Eighties Ladies comprising the vocal talents of Susan Beaubian, Marva Hicks, Vivian Prince, Denie Corbett & Sylvia Striplin backed by an all-start line-up Roy Ayers band (including Rick James who shares the production).



The anthemic ‘Turned on To You” and “Ladies of the Eighties” are both included in this absolutely classic boogie-funk-jazz-soul album from the start of the 80s. Soul Jazz Records are re-issuing this remastered album in its entirety with original artwork, in Soul Jazz case edition CD and deluxe heavyweight card and gate-fold vinyl.

Insane Clown Posse 'Miracles'



I know this post must seem odd just based on the fact that I.C.P. is the artist being covered...but this video and track will make you laugh for days. I don't even care to ponder whether or not these two 'clowns' are in on the joke or are actually making inspirational music for their backwoods kids...either way...this is BRILLIANT.

Special thanks to my man Josh for opening my eyes to 'Miracles.'

M.I.A. 'Born Free'

King Fantastic

Hollyrock Jam Session from King Fantastic on Vimeo.



They describe themselves as 'Westcoastsynthesizerbeachbumgangstermusic.' Which is enough for me to give them a listen. The group is comprised of Killer Reese One and that hustler Troublemaker-seriously, he's a hustler-I feel like I've been getting promo remixes from the guy for years. Their debut album 'Finger Snaps and Gun Claps' will be released in June. Above is the recently shot video for "Hollyrock Jam Session."

Check out their remix of The Glitch Mob's 'Drive It Like You Stole It'!












And 'Because' by The Bird and The Bee...

LCD SoundSystem 'Drunk Girls' Video



I feel this track doesn't make any sense in the grand scheme of the album. In fact, I'm not the biggest fan of the track. I am however, a massive fan of this video.

The Sugarcubes 'Hit'

LCD SoundSystem 'This Is Happening'




I have listened to this album as many as 10 times in the first 24 Hours since I downloaded it. Sometimes reviews just need to get to the point, sometimes I feel it's better to not wax poetic on what so many are sure to critique.

Album opener 'Dance Yrself Clean' is a solid favorite.

Go on and dance yrself clean and realize that all the time...this is happening.

Ramadanman



David Kennedy, aka Ramadanman and co-founder of Hessle Audio has just picked up where James Blake left off with the labels previous 12". Spacious and funky. You can hardly stand the space between each snap and twist the tracks offer. I would say Ramadanman is one of the few producers out there making the wobble step vibe where the rest in his music is as precious as the beats themselves.

Ramadanman EP (Hessle Audio)
A. 'I Beg You'
B1. 'No Swing'
B2. 'Tumble'

Ramadanman EP will be released on Hessle Audio on May 4th.

Mexicans With Guns



Mexicans With Guns is the production-moniker/character created by Exponential Records honcho Ernest Gonzales. Only forming in Feb. 2009 he has already remixed Bassnectar, Rainbow Arabia, CYNE, Faunts and Yppah. He has also shared the stage with Peanut Butter Wolf, Daedelus, Ghosts on Tape, Nocando, Eliot Lipp. Mux Mool, Jogger and more.

From what I've heard so far it's kind of like a Mexican wrestling match between an Atari, a massive Bass cabinet and Speedy Gonzalez.

Available exclusively via the Stones Throw store NOW!

D'Angelo 'Voodoo'



This album came out slightly over ten years ago. It's sounds as fresh as the first time I heard it-sewer soul, psychedelic soul, Mo-Hip-Town-Hop. Whatever the label this album is smooth like a fine V.S.O.P. I suggest a hot Summer day with your honey just being lazy around the house 'sharing in a slice of the Devil's Pie.'

NEU!



Neu! (trademarked NEU! in block capitals, German: New!, pronounced [ˈnɔʏ]) was a German band formed by Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother after their split from Kraftwerk in the early 1970s. Though the band had minimal commercial success during its existence, Neu! are retrospectively considered one of the founding fathers of Krautrock and a significant influence on artists including PiL, Joy Division, Brian Eno, David Bowie, Stereolab, Gary Numan, Ultravox, Radiohead, The Horrors & Simple Minds.

GUMBO BASS





A live bass heavy mix, train wrecks and all. Not many though. The mix is a great example of how far and wide my tastes are these days. A little dub reggae, a little UK Funky, wobble and step, you get the idea.
