Barletta Does Boom Boom Boom Comments | Nov 11 2008

I’ve been so incredibly busy with school and work I am slacking a bit with content. Sorry bout that I’ll try and get my life together. Anyways the new drop from Dj Barletta is an edit of The Outhere Brothers - Boom Boom Boom dating back to ‘94. Even if a club was empty the place would pop off that is how sick nasty this track is.

Magic Flashlights Comments | Nov 08 2008


Magic Flashlights from Mike Benson on Vimeo.
Knife Show Inc and friends uncover a strange phenomenon at Timberline Lodge at Mt Hood. Snowboarding video takes place in and out of High Cascade Summer Camp. Shot and edited by Mike Benson. Starring Brendan Hayes, Eli weiner, Scott Stevens, Chris Beresford, Matty Mo, Jesse Burtner, and Casey Wrightsman.

When it comes to snowboarding back in days I was super pumped with Robot Food’s first vidoe Lame came out because it completely added an new dimension to videos. They were fun again, they were creative, they were well directed and produced… snowboard videos were interesting again. And this is exactly what I feel Mike Benson is doing, making videos about riding with friends and just having fun.

And Yes the music is MGMT. For the other post of MGMT - Kids (This is My Empire! RMX) travel here.

Halloween’s Best Best Bass Lines… Ever, Y’all Comments | Nov 02 2008

Are you going to vote? I am I feel it’s my personal responsibility as a Canadian to voice my opinions about global politics. I am adding The Cobrasnake to each and every ballot I get my hands on.

So I put in a few seconds of listening to poppin’ tunes with killer bass lines. Well I’ve come to conclude that these are some of my fav. and that you probably need to listen to them/download them. These base lines may not be that tech, but there solid, poppin’ and dirty beyond belief. Show some love for these artists cause they know where its at! I posted music from many artists/producers from around the world… and my man DJ Barletta/Mansion shoutin’ love from their show at Circa last night. Um… YESSSS!!!!

Anyways, how was y’all Halloween? did you dress up in some zanny gool outfits? or held your personal respect and just go as yourself? I went as Sam from Wasted Push-ups. No one got it… is that my fault? Should I have been the Henrik Vibskov Jumper? Should I have been scary like a warlock from World Of War Kraft?

Tricky - Council Estate (Mowgli wobblin mix)

Don Rimini - Hools(Dj Barletta Edit)

A - Track Say Whoa (Big Nasty RMx)

3 is a crowd - Take It Back (HeavyFeet RMX)

ACDC - Thunderstruck (Crookers RMX) - also proabbly one of the most legit shows i’ve been to…

Empire Of The Sun can walk on dreams and The Killers are dancers Comments | Oct 24 2008

Empire Of The Sun are one of those bands from Australia that are proving there are no “bad” music coming from the land down under. Empire Of The Sun consist of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson. Who knows I could be hatted for this reference but Empire Of The Sun kind of reminds me of a Australian MGMT in a with their easy listening pop psychedelia. Many people have been claiming that the remix of Walking On A Dream by Sam La More (Sam Littlemore the brother of Nick Littlemore) is the best rmx of the song. While it is good, my vote goes with VanShe Tech remix. Empire Of The Suns debut album is currently available on iTunes - watch the video and when you see the album link click it and it will talk you to the iTunes store.

Empire Of The Sun - Walking On A Dream

Empire Of The Sun - Half Mast


The new song by The Killers does not suck, it is just as authentic and majestic a band can get. Noting The Killers are getting weirder and more obscure their music keeps raising the bar for the fusion between Indie Rock and Alternative music. Human starts off with similarities to U2 and blends into a more familiar sound of When You Were Young but making sure that they are not just banking of the sound and success of their previous hit. I found Human also shares similarities with the Toronto group Put The Rifle Down. Aside from the roaming majestic animals I am in awe of Brandon Flowers feather vest… like what? A-mazing. The Killers new album Day & Age is being released November 25, 2008.

The Killers - Human

I’ve been playing around with new music video and Overlay.TV’s interactive features for online video. That’s how I addeed all the dynamic content, text and links into the videos. Help the artists out and link to where you can buy their albums/mp3’s online. Overlay.TV allows you to link through the videos you post to itunes/beatport/amazon etc. YE!

Probably the happiest people alive! Comments | Oct 21 2008

Matt and Kim are an infused indie pop duo from Brooklyn with raw and catchy tunes. Their track Yea Yeah which really allowed them to take off came out over a year ago and they have done it again with the newly released Daylight single [video above]. I first say Matt and Kim in Toronto last summer when they played at Mod Club and quickly realized that they are probably the happiest people I have ever seen. Their whole set both of them had a huge smile across their faces and were authentically loving life being super fun and just playing their music. If you want proof if this claim just watch their new video for Daylight or their Yea Yeah video, happiest people ever!

Down In This Rapture Of Love Comments | Oct 20 2008

Down In This Rapture Of Love is a slice of the song Rapture ft. Sebastien Grainger by datA. I posted it originally when discussing how when Canadians and French musicians colaberate they just win at life. Finally the video was released for Rapture which has some killer motion graphics as i am sure you have already noticed. It was directed by Nicolas ANDRE & Damien VIGNAUX of Incog Design Büro.

Anyways here are a favorite RMX’s by Pacific! and Rapture pt. II.

Psychedelic Beach Walks Comments | Oct 19 2008

I’ve been listening to a more calmer style of music as of late. I say its the productivity level that isn’t hinder by loud, fast electro/ghetto/glitch tracks. Some of the highlights from the bands that I’ve listened to for a long while but feel they need to be recognized more, well some are pretty popular and others are still fairly unknown. Passion Pit, M83, Air France and MGMT. They all have similar styles of psychedelic pop infused synth rocking with easy listening of some sort but everything is overly catchy and relaxing. Listening to these songs really just makes me want to go for a stroll on the beach at sunset or just drift around in space  and not worry about a thing.

Passion Pit - Better Things

Passion Pit - Sleepy Head

M83 - Graveyard Girl

M83 - Teen Angst

Air France - Karibien

Air France - No Excuses

MGMT - Kids (This Is My Empire RMX)

MGMT - Of Moons Birds & Monsters
