The drums & electronic strings are sweeping in this Afrojack remix of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”. Miley’s vocals don’t appear until halfway through allowing Afrojack to steal the show with his expert level of EDM DJ skills. It begins haunting & dark. Then the bass hits like a million sledgehammers in your eardrums. Whew.
It’s one badass mix that plays for close to 8 minutes. Get out your glowing wrecking balls. We breaking down the club.
A Friday mix from Girl Talk. We haven’t heard much from Gregg since 2010′s ‘All Day’ dropped. I haven’t spoken of him since our 2011 B4M showcase. Long story short. this is overdue. Apparently, he’s planning on dropping something new in 2013/2014. I’ll update y’all when that moment blows up all the blogs. This is just a cut from his latest super mash up effort. You’ll hear samples of Big Boi & others. What more could you ask for on this Friday morn?
I have no plans set for the weekend. Maybe see Thor…or how my friend Ash wants me to write it: MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD (so very proud of her! Predicted she’d be running things. =)…or go see a show & knock another venue off my self-imposed list. Just want to write really. Got a handful of new twitter artists for our Spotlight Saturday session. So, come back tomorrow for that or to listen to the new MMLP2.
Have an amazing weekend y’all! Here is a megamix to kick it off.
…Do you have this track on your iPod? If you replied no then you’re missing out on one of the top three tracks of 2013. I’m disappointed that RAM by Daft Punk isn’t in your CD collection. One of the best albums of the year. Here is the link to buy…buy…buy! Possibly judge your taste of ‘good music’ because of it. No doubts about it. Been dying to pick up the vinyl at Amoeba. Bit pricey at $40. That’s the only thing halting me. Soon. It will apart of my collection quite soon. For now, this will do. It always does. Do you think in the future this track will be playing in elevators and/or malls?
Comic Book Wednesday was a blast. Still tired. Wing Night probably won’t go down tonight cause I have to pack. But we’ll see. Not very likely. My sights are set on a one night stand in Vegas. Not having a ONS in sin city…that might happen with some over priced ‘slampig’ if I feel like getting lucky. But mostly going for the gambling & cheap drinks. 24+ hours in my favorite US spot is full of so many possibilities. Wonder if they’ll have a nickel shot night. Our AotW featuring The Civil Wars will drop Friday Night. If I have time during Broadchurch watching to post some spotlights for Saturday, then applaud for me. The emails are piling up with fantastic recommendations.
Wish I had more to say. Life is good. Just paranoid that bosses are coming for my spot. Nothing I should worry about. Will walk around with that Bret Hart swagger till I’m dead & gone. Cue the guitar. Then I’ll let Giorgio tell you a story about his revolutionary life. This is “Giorgio By Moroder” by Daft Punk.

A bit of a tease before we “officially” return tomorrow. Happy we’re rolling again? I am. Been missing the music. Love when I can get soulful. ”The Renaissance”, by Q-Tip, is just one of those iconic hip-hop soul records that showcase what I have been missing from this generation’s pop friendly / experimental guady hip-hop that spews from the radio nowadays.
Need a palette cleanser? Meet Q-Tip’s 5 mic ranking hip hop classic. A Renaissance back in 2008.
#truth. J. Cole probably has one huge smile after Nas responded to his ‘Let Nas Down’ cut with a few epic bars. Simply incredible poetry. Enjoy…
A song so catchy that it had my mother singing the hook this morning. Special Delivery. Special Delivery. Because they invented the Remix. To grow up during the Rap Remix gang war between Bad Boy, So So Def, and all the other minor labels shows my age…but remember it fondly. There was a victor. His name was R. Kelly. Because the remix to Ignition is the best remix of all time! My Kanye west moment. ’I Need A Girl (Part 2)‘ trailing close behind as #2. For have you ever been to Saint-Tropez and see a brother play a mandolin? haha, you haven’t? Then you haven’t lived according to Diddy. ”I just wanna look in your eyes and watch the sunrise”…it’s that bounce.
Well, the Blackhawks did it. Looks like I’m going to game 3 or 4 with the coworkers. Super excited. Also, my Fall out Boy tickets just shipped. June’s gonna be a hot concert month. I have to wait to buy the 30 Secs to mars at the Hollywood Bowl in October, but I’m going to that show. Bank on it! Tonight’s Wing night. Gonna watch the Pacers beat the Heat. Can’t predict will happen.
yeah, should be fun. He’s one catchy track.
Wanted Two Things: The longest title in our history & a killer beat to kick off this holiday weekend as I roll out. Mission Accomplished. This is the ‘Can’t Hold Us’ remix brought to you from Major Lazer. Here we go. #swat
This song didn’t need a remix, but if anyone deserved to be highlighted it was 2 CHAINZ! Natural progression after being featured in the video. You feel the beat on this one. Just remember, it’s 2 Chainz!
The Boys ‘Save Rock and Roll’ in a two weeks.
Stuck at work and need a good hook to drive you mad? Luckily, here’s something to play ‘hook-y’ with…=). It’s Sammy Bananas’ reinterpretation of Timberlake’s 20/20 “Let The Groove Get In”. Still not a fan of the record, but the possibilities of amazing remixes that will be born from the mega selling record makes me oh so gitty. Here’s the first.
Get comfy. You won’t be able to get it out your head.
If you’re expecting a Jay-Z cameo over the original track, then you are totally wrong. You get that non-suit & tie Jay verse as Kendrick Lamar builds new bars on top of the iconic chorus while adding HOVA. Almost stood up and applauded in my office cubicle in front from my coworkers when he said..
I’m lookin’ to be the god MC
You look at my hat and see thorns there
I look at the game and see porn there
Fuckin’ this industry hard
This is why Kendrick is the fucking man now.
Plus, probably the best single cover of 2013.
