Based on the set lists and reviews I’ve read it sounds like Umphrey’s McGee tore it up this weekend. I found a recording of a debute mash-up “Mark On The Bus”  mashing Rage Against The Machine’s “Bulls On Parade” with The Beastie Boys “Mark On The Bus”.

Hudson Mohawke: BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

29 Oct

The BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes never cease to amaze me. One of my favorite EMs is Hudson Mohawke. His gltichy hip hop style is one of a kind. In this mix you’ll hear Hudson Mo’s  spin on Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Twista, Pharell and much more.

N e Tempo

18 Oct

 

Spotted N e Tempo at The Brain Trust’s blog. The Brain Trust is a hip-hop and electronic event production company with ties in Boston and NYC. They have worked with many artists like Major Lazer, KiD CuDi, O.T.T, Talib Kweli, EOTO, Rusko, Telepath, Brothers Past. N e Tempo really stood out to me as a duo that could really tear up the dance floor. Their music runs through the electronic genres covering dub step, breakbeat, house and downtempo. They have opened for big acts in the electronic scene including EOTO, Big Gigantic and Orchard Lounge. I really dig this band so check them out on Facebook and enjoy.

Exciting news from the world of Umphrey’s McGee! Starting this fall, Umphrey’s will begin rolling out some new music for all of us to enjoy. To kick things off they have released a new studio single titled “Wellwishers”. Its a pretty chill track and it definitely has potential for some wicked live jams.

Beats Antique Live

3 Oct

This is a Beats Antique concert that was streamed live over the internet a few weeks ago. I know its long but if you have the time its really worth watching the whole thing. My favorite song would have to be at either 26:00 or 31:00. It gets pretty funny at 44:00 as well 🙂 Their music fuses  underground hip hop, breakbeat brass band, downtempo, glitch and dubstep behind a curtain of middle eastern belly dancing (17:00) flavor. The violin and sitar brings sounds that are rarely heard in their genre. Also below is a couple track off of their new album Blind Threshold which you can pick up here.

MGMT Remixed, Reworked, and Mashed-Up

28 Sep

People seem to love to remix, rework, and mash-up MGMT songs (including MGMT themselves). So here’s just a few random MGMT remixes just because (no they aren’t new). The first is a rework of Electric feel done by MGMT themselves and its really sweet. I think it’s better produced and gives the song less of a messy sound. I really recommended checking that one out. The second is the Electric Feel Justice Remix. Then comes the DJ STHLM remix of kids (which is awesome). Fourth is the Wait What Nas vs. MGMT Justice Remix of Electric Feel mash-up (confusing right?) Lastly comes the famous Xaphoon Jones MGMT v Bob Marley mash-up which I’m pretty sure we already posted once, but whatever, it’s worth another post. That’s all I have to offer off of Oracular Spectacular. Then off of their latest album, Congratulations, here’s It’s Working Air Remix and a Someone’s Missing and Weezy mash-up. There are plenty more of them I’m sure, but I thought I’d share some cool ones. Check them out.
