Dakar Bounce

Maga Bo made this great mini-documentary/interview with Senegalese rappers Xuman and Keyti. These guys speak articulately and positely about the globalization of hip-hop, and the cross-breeding of musical influences from around the world. Now with internet, the world is like an international village… I can know what’s going on in Brazil today… I can know what’s happening in China; I…

Body Juke, Britney Work

The other day Murderbot asked me for the a-capella of Body Work; a track that Zulu and I made. I sent it his way and the next day he sent me back 2 remixes. They’re both hot! The first one is a mashup of Zulu’s vocals on top of Britney’s new (“It’s Britney, Bitch”) beat.

Eclectic Junglists

Murderbot and I ventured out to Zebo and Hess‘s Can I Kick It party last night. It turned out that Manny (AKA DJ Magneto AKA ERS One) was the guest DJ. It was like a junglist convention in there, yet no jungle was being dropped. Seems that ‘Bot and I aren’t the only ones who have become fed up with…

DJ Donnasummer (AKA Jason Forrest) just brought this Belgian/Dutch style of music to my attention via his sick Jump Set DJ mix.
