Took me longer than I thought but at least I’m feeling this Joe Cocker on acid vibe ; People are skeptical about reggaeton taking over some of the electronica sub-genres but here I quote Aeroplane “Genres are for journalists”.

“-so….what does [Die Antwoord] mean?
-answer to what?
Whether you’ve heard of Die Antwoord in 2009 when they had their big break or more recently, it probably made a hell of an impression on you. I feel that either you love or hate them….or maybe you’re like me and don’t quite know how to feel about them. I find their beat sick and “next level” like Ninja (born Watkin Tudor Jones), the main rapper says in Zef Side‘s video. It’s a perfect video to show you guys as a sample of their work since it’s part interview, part song, and it’s visually appealing even if it’s sooooo goddamn trashy! Try paying special attention to Yo-Landi Vi$$er (the girl) at 1:13; her looking at Ninja’s crotch is priceless.
I think the Afrikaan (South-African) hip-hop group wanted to take over rich country youngsters as a smart marketing move, so they tried appeling to trends in the USA and Japan. And did it ever work! In Zef Side, there’s the whole trailer-park trash vibe, and in, say, Enter the Ninja, the whole Japanese sexy schoolgirl, the cartoon-like girl voice, citing Japan and Ying & Yang, the ninja title, the martial art vibe, the use of a katana in the video..it all just comes together.Then there’s the handicapped boy they use in the video…was there a message behind it? I think Ninja wanted to show that you can build something big even if you start with no chances on your side.
Honestly Die Antwoord leave me quite puzzled…are they good guys? Bad guys? All I know is that Rich Bitch and Zef Side are pretty cool tunes, and that I’m going to have to find out if they’re really as weird as they portray themselves to be, for myself, ’cause they’re going to be in Montreal October 25th at Metropolis.
They’re not charging cheap, so I’m hoping it’ll be a hell of a show!

I have been hunting tracks for the past few hours and the result is juicy.
Metsi is a polish dj/producer that exceeds in the mashup/bootleg business. You can contact him via soundcloud or might also give Laidback Luke’s forum a try since he is a member over there. From what I know Laidback Luke is very active in his threads so you should give it a look if you are into music producing.
Fake Blood put up a great show when he came in Montreal around New Year’s Eve @ Les Foufounes Électriques. Tommie Sunshine is well known in the electro remix industry so lets see what Figure’s Brooklyn sound can bring into this funky edit.
“Carl Edward Sagan (November 9, 1934 – December 20, 1996) was an American astronomer, astrophysicist, author, cosmologist, and highly successful popularizer of astronomy, astrophysics and other natural sciences. During his lifetime, he published more than 600 scientific papers and popular articles and was author, co-author, or editor of more than 20 books. In his works, he advocated skeptical inquiry and the scientific method. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI).” via wikipedia
Doorly sent us this track last weekend. He changed his dubstep style for this train-made remix of what seems like the new “You’ve got the love” buzz. I will let you guys discover what seems to be a hit for this summer.
From the book Marijuana Reconsidered, Carl Sagan wrote under the pseudonym Mr. X which was revealed after his death.
” I do not consider myself a religious person in the usual sense, but there is a religious aspect to some highs. The heightened sensitivity in all areas gives me a feeling of communion with my surroundings, both animate and inanimate. Sometimes a kind of existential perception of the absurd comes over me and I see with awful certainty the hypocrisies and posturing of myself and my fellow men. And at other times, there is a different sense of the absurd, a playful and whimsical awareness. Both of these senses of the absurd can be communicated, and some of the most rewarding highs I’ve had have been in sharing talk and perceptions and humor. Cannabis brings us an awareness that we spend a lifetime being trained to overlook and forget and put out of our minds. A sense of what the world is really like can be maddening; cannabis has brought me some feelings for what it is like to be crazy, and how we use that word ‘crazy’ to avoid thinking about things that are too painful for us. In the Soviet Union political dissidents are routinely placed in insane asylums. The same kind of thing, a little more subtle perhaps, occurs here: ‘did you hear what Lenny Bruce said yesterday? He must be crazy.’ When high on cannabis I discovered that there’s somebody inside in those people we call mad.”
Considering it’s 4:20, I couldn’t resist to post this sick track produced by Major Lazer (Diplo & Switch) last summer.
” When I’m high I can penetrate into the past, recall childhood memories, friends, relatives, playthings, streets, smells, sounds, and tastes from a vanished era. I can reconstruct the actual occurrences in childhood events only half understood at the time. Many but not all my cannabis trips have somewhere in them a symbolism significant to me which I won’t attempt to describe here, a kind of mandala embossed on the high. Free-associating to this mandala, both visually and as plays on words, has produced a very rich array of insights.
There is a myth about such highs: the user has an illusion of great insight, but it does not survive scrutiny in the morning. I am convinced that this is an error, and that the devastating insights achieved when high are real insights; the main problem is putting these insights in a form acceptable to the quite different self that we are when we’re down the next day. Some of the hardest work I’ve ever done has been to put such insights down on tape or in writing. The problem is that ten even more interesting ideas or images have to be lost in the effort of recording one. It is easy to understand why someone might think it’s a waste of effort going to all that trouble to set the thought down, a kind of intrusion of the Protestant Ethic. But since I live almost all my life down I’ve made the effort – successfully, I think. Incidentally, I find that reasonably good insights can be remembered the next day, but only if some effort has been made to set them down another way. If I write the insight down or tell it to someone, then I can remember it with no assistance the following morning; but if I merely say to myself that I must make an effort to remember, I never do. ” via boingboing
Comme breakbot nous propose via twitter, je suis allé faire un tour sur le blog de crookers entre mes dix heures d’étude. Alexkid a remixé Remedy de Crookers qui feature Miike Snow. J’aime bien alors je partage avec vous. Comme il dit sur son myspace : “drum machines to take over the nation!”. J’avais déjà post le videoclip pour ceux qui ne l’ont pas encore vue.
On entend souvent les producings de Miike Snow, mais pour faire changement ils remix une chanson de Vampire Weekend que plusieurs de vous vont reconnaître. Ils viennent le 2 avril au Club Soda -> 18$ = une aubaine à ne pas manquer.
