Little Joy

This music is slow life on a beach sipping Mojitos with a sexy lady. It really warms up the balls-out-cold of Vermont in November.

Little Joy is Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes, Rodrigo Amarante of Los Hermanos, and Binki Shapiro.

Oh this is nice.

Biggie Smalls, What?

Its not every day that a Biggie demo from 1992 falls into your lap. Indeed, I might go so far as to say that makes for a BANNER day.

The demo, though not of the highest production quality, and with the incredibly annoying voice of the random dj who found the tracks over the chorus, is still absolutely fantastic.

Macs and Dons, an unreleased track, is probably the most upbeat Biggie beat ive ever heard. Check it for yourself.

On Rotation

Let's highlight some music.

Something you should definitely check out is Devendra Banhart's side project, Megapuss. The band is made up of Banhart, Priestbird's Greg Rogove and Stroke's drummer Fabrizio Moretti. The members of the band got together and made up song names, only to later write music to match the names and put together an album. Its called Surfing.

Chicken Titz - Megapuss

The vinyl lp comes out December 9. The CD is out on Vapor Records.

Fresh Cold Cuts on Rye

You have probably heard of Coldcut, the British dance/hip hop duo. You probably like them.

In England, they have this great thing called the BBC, which owns radio and TV and internet outlets. Though this may be a scary example of government control of the media, they tend to do an excellent job with music programming.

BBC Radio 1 has a show called Essential Mix that is basically a late-night mix from a famous DJ or group broadcast over the air. Think DJ Shadow or RJD2 or Diplo doing a live concert set on the radio and that's about it.

Cold Cut has an excellent version of this Essential Mix, two hours of beautiful hip hop samples and dance beats.

and enjoy

Keenhouse is an LA based electro artist on the new Binary Label, who definitely deserve some attention. Theyve been putting out fire with some of their new acts, such as The Kids are RADIOACTIVE and NightWaves. Really just fire.
