Just got this by way of email and I must say, I like attached mp3s rather than linked mp3s in my emails.

Apple mail puts a handy little play button in the mail window and I can listen directly there. This just makes my workflow that much quicker and a hell of a lot simpler.

I’d only heard of Intergalactic Bastard in passing, so getting a sample of his work in my mailbox was a nice surprise.

I’ve been loving this glitchy/stop/start sound lately –it’s kind of a sound The Videoband (no parisienne rmx, no exclamation) uses very well.

have a listen, then peep the myspace for other solid listening material. (very solid)

Intergalactic Bastard – Hell Yeah!

it is imperative that you realize the danger

You’ve all heard Danger before. Whether it be in someone’s mixtape, your friends car space, TV space, movie space, radiospace, outer space, deep sea space, cyberspace, or myspace, you’ve heard it.

Aside from the awesome original productions (which hypem is overflowing with), Danger also dips his skinny fingers in the remix production game. I recently came across this track which made the A/C in my house explode with random, PBR-wielding dancing hipsters crawling out of the vents.

I can guarantee that you’ll hear this coming from my and everyone else’s car/headphones/house/parties ….starting last month.

video update (updated)

NOTICE: there is a floating creature in the lower left. correct. I am a huge fan of this ‘internet balloon race’ …. you could win shit… or something. i don’t really know. anyway, i kind of like the cute animal. it will be here for a few days… or weeks… something.

I had to put this up to exemplify the fact that a music video can be ANYTHING. All that hinges on the success of said music video is the quality of the song. Subpar videos that are saved by awesome music, if you will.

take note: the same cannot be said about a shitty song combined with an awesome video.
disclaimer: I love Ladyhawke.

You may have heard an extremely catchy track featuring the voice of a female in my last mixtape. Modular Chris sent this tonight and I just had to smile about it. Ladyhawke’s ‘Paris is Burning’ is a highly solid track on its own merit. The same cannot be said about the music video featuring our favorite lady walking through various stages of events….

1. out the back door of a club, in an alley
2. battling drunk hobo in said alley
3. through a pillow fight
4. through a welding shop
5. finally ending up at prom with confetti

This just does nothing for me…. HOWEVER. It did EVERYTHING for me because the song is so good.

Think what you will, but it is my new mission to make shitty music videos over the best tracks I come across, and the magic of the sounds will prevail.

update: jason has informed me that he told Pip that her first cut of the video sucked. Upon hearing this, she promptly re-uploaded a new video. So this is actually version two. do any of you creepy e-stalking ladyhawke lovers have a saved flv? …. i mean, i’m sure it’s out there…. it’s not like i saved the rough cut of D.A.N.C.E. or anything…..



oh, just tramping about

I have a separate email for the myspace account, it’s ‘discojockeys [at] tuftsmania [dot] com’ and I thought I might just check it for fun. (prior to this, I didn’t even think of forwarding it to my main address, chris@tuftsmania.com) –speaking of social networking.. I’ve been stepping my game up! If you haven’t added me on facebook, twitter, myspace….. you’re missing out on some sweet memes.

Anyway, I found some awesome gems in there. Another mass CC message which I promptly replied to. This time it was a ‘what are you eating right now’ meme. The music blogging community has some definitely stellar taste in food. Especially MAD DECENT (not sure which blogger), rocking it downtown chinatown style with the vietnamese classic, “Banh Mi“. Word up to mad decent.

The original promo email that had us all on the same list was of an artist I’d never heard of. ChicandtheTramp rocks it daily over in Switzerland and I’m impressed. The heavy banger………STILL BURNS IN MY HEART…. or maybe it’s the Pink’s Chili Dogs.

Also I recently got my hands on the recent bootleg production of The Beach Boys – Locals Only. It was put together by the Black Lights and features remixes from Johnatron, bulimiatron, black lights, thavius (what’s up fellow CCer), ricky dollars, futuristic prince, and subtitle (what’s his myspace?).

Going through this album, most of the remixes are somewhat more abstract with core beats other than the standard 4/4… and that is awesome, but this is what immediately caught my attention. Definite crowd pleaser… so accessible.

If you’re interested, download it for FREE at the Black Lights Blog, leave a comment and show them some love for their hard work.

This is a similar project to what Buffet Libre is doing with their ’80’s rewind project’ and I would love to see more of this kind of stuff in the future.

Lemme know what you think. If any links are dead… lemme know. The heat in LA is warping my mind.



POOL PARTY @ TUFTSMANIA (tracklist in comments)

It’s been obscenely hot in LA and when it’s hot, you have a pool party. One of the requirements of a successful pool party is excellent music.

Who gives a shit about smooth technical mixing when you’re too busy blasting your friend with a Super Soaker 2000 Death Cannon Triple Barrel Lazer Machine Hydromaster?

exactly.

also, big ups to Hacks from Resonator Mag for reminding me about the 80kidz remix of “Knock Out”.

Franki Chan from IHEARTCOMIX also sent this little gem of a mixtape over to me. It has a tracklist that is pretty much all 5-stars in my itunes, so you should check it out.

PS: what’s the deal with hotlinking files? Obviously it’s an easy way to link to a file/mp3/whatever, but it totally kills me these days. I’m not making any money from this website, and when another site (sometimes even sponsored, to remain nameless) hotlinks to the files hosted on this site, I over-run my bandwidth allotment. I have TONS of bandwidth and it is usually pretty hard to do, but once it’s linked outside on other bigger websites, game over. There really aren’t any excuses with the multitudes of free online file hosting (zshare, megaupload, yousendit.)

I could care less about ‘being the first’ to break news on a track,
I could care less about getting credit for ‘being the source’ of a track,
and I could care less about getting a huge reader base.

Getting quality visitors works well enough by word of mouth.

So, other leechy music blogs, let’s show some proper netiquette

…AND SAVE ME THE BANDWIDTH OVER-USAGE MONEY!
