Shaun Boothe returns with more hits. Link:

leave a comment »

So remember how I geeked out over that Shaun Boothe record that used that awesome sample from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody? Well he’s returned (not that he ever left) with some new freshness for you to enjoy. “Do It For You,” his newest track hitting the internets is a uplifting dedication from Shaun to the art of Hip Hop and Music in general (“they say theres no money in music/so you should KNOW I do it for you”). You can check out the song and a short video with him taking you through the heart of his native Canadas by checking the YouTubes and stream/download the song by clicking here.

Find more music from Shaun on his YouTube page… and enjoy.

You know that awesome song in that Trident Commercial? It's an even better Music Video.

Yeah. So surprisingly enough, I am not opposed to this fairly poppy, euro dance song that magically popped up in my life recently. Or its supporting music video. Both are somewhat amazing and creative enough to keep my attention for a long amount of time. Martin Solveig, whos always good for the duet, teams up with Dragonette and her vocals. The result is non annoying party music. Mix that with an intriguing Music Video with an interesting (and fairly questionable) ending… and you have an all around win with me.

(Also, did anyone ePlay Motion commercial for wii or xBox? I think someone just got copyright jacked. But we’ll see.)

Too Cute.

Video | Photo: The Roots Live @ The Playboy Jazz Festival.

(Before you do anything… Hit a like button up there for me. Then go leave a comment. Don’t let me have installed Disqus for nothing. lol.)
So remember when I told you about The Roots headlining the Playboy Jazz Festival? Yeah, I made it out. And here is all the awesome proof.

By the way… check out Slidedeck. Its the truth and the future. I know the photos dont fit into the format yet (still working on it), but if you want to see the picture in full, all you have to do is click on it and it will take you to the full photo.

Also, an interesting interview with Questlove regarding The Roots leading such a prominent jazz festival. I mean, since The Legendary are basically a Jazz Band that do hip hop, I don’t understand what the problem is. Yeah, some of the 60+ got up and left… but they were like, 60. No offense. (And thanks euroweb for featuring my video.)

But really, the YouTubes should give you an ideal of what a fun time it was. Everything I have is up on my YouTube page for you to see.
The best part? The Gil Scott-Heron Cover of “The Bottle” with Terrance Blanchard on the horns. Wow.
Second to that… the lead in from Bob James and Fourplay doing “Westchester Lady,” which led right to The Roots set. Dopeness.

The Roots and Terrance Blanchard: Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Bottle”

….The start of the show… Bob James and Fourplay do “Westchester Lady” before The Roots tear the roof off.

…and here we go.

..and there you go. I didn’t even go to this thing with the intent of recording. I was on my 3rd glass of chardonnay. So its not the greatest stability in the camera. But I hope you semi-enjoy.
Leave a comment in the awesome discuss feature for me, and spread the word.

You need to listen to Quadron right fast. Links:

Quick post, but an awesome post.

Ambient, soulful, electronic, fairly kickass. After seeing Quadron mentioned in my timeline a few days ago by some great friends, I was quickly reminded of how amazing Quadron is, and how I have not yet made a post to appreciate that awesome. A Denmark Duo, these kids have been churning out jams for the better part of the last two years. And if they can keep sounding like this, I will keep acting like I care.

Ima go listen to this for a while. You guys tell me what you think. And its real easy with disqus down there now. lol.

You know that awesome song in that New Honda CRV Commercial? It's Mr. Little Jeans – "Rescue Song (RAC Remix)." Links:

leave a comment »

Yeah. Not what I was expecting either. Wow.

This one I actually had to look up. Did it two weeks ago, but were just now catching up with my own musically overactive brain. Thought I should take the time to post it up here and now before I forgot what it was again. Popping up in the Honda CRV “Forecast” Commercial, I figured I could take the time to find out what it was so I can replay the sh*t out of it at any given time. Songs name? “The Rescue Song.” And its Mr. Little Jean. And yeah. Not a guy. Shes a rather beautiful lady with beautiful electronica/trance/synth 808-laced composed song that has my attention at the moment. I’m glad I looked her up. Finding her Soundcloud page was an victory of gigantic proprotions, discovering awesome remakes of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” all over her page. Along with other awesomeness. I’m a fan, hope she keeps it up. Rescue Song (RAC Remix) by Mr Little Jeans


The amazing @AdrienneWrites sits down with @IamAnitaBaker for a quick catch-up on The New Album.

I’ll just go ahead and post up the photo, you can have all the fun. Thanks, For Anita Baker Fans.

How did I not know My Morning Jacket dropped A New Single? "Circuital." Link:

I love you, Potholes In My Blog. When I’m slippin, you’re right there with a musical cushion to catch me.

For the first single off their newest album (which also made Potholes Most Anticipated Albums of 2011 list), MMJ kinda leave behind their trademark Pedaled-Up technique and¬† take you on a 7 minute melody changing, bluegrass and country influenced, uptempo little journey that somehow leaves you wanting more even, though you just spent a good chunk of your time with it. Hard to pull off nowadays… but easy for these kids who are on their 99th album already (no not really. But you know what I mean).

You can right click-save as right here to download, or just click it to enjoy. (OOOOOh. I’m learnding MacBook. LOL).
