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.

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!



Buffet Libre saved my life

I have more than 1 reason to be thankful for these guys right now. Pizza, double cheeseburgers, spaghetti, delicious… all you can eat in Buffet Libre.

1.
For the past year or so, these guys from Spain have been putting out some of the most tasteful mixtapes I’ve laid ears on (aka the Verbena series). It’s less of the ‘computer mixing trickery’ and more of just straight pure awesome track selection. The mixing is smooth, to the point, and seamless. No tacky trickery here to make up for the mindless process of building your tracklist around what ‘the blogs you follow on hypem‘ post weekly.

2.
Today after my hellish first block of finals, I was looking for some relief and Marc from Buffet Libre was chillin in my mailbox to the rescue. I may not have ever mentioned here, but for the past months, a song has been haunting my memory. Ever since the day I tried to remember the title of it to play at a party. It would NOT come to me. From then on, a day hasn’t passed without me hearing the intro/vocals/rhythm of that mystery song.

That went on for about 3 months………and finally ended today. All thanks to…
Verbena Selected vol. 4. (right click, save as). Tracklist is after the break.

hotter (update! one more remix)

The temperatures in LA have been out of control lately. My normal bike route home which is usually very short and cool, resulted in me being drenched in sweat all week.

This is the time to have sweaty, debaucherous parties.

–but before all that, I need to finish school. :(

ENOUGH OF THAT.

MANY Thanks to all the people who send me demos, advances, mixtapes, nudes, and especially all the big name labels who, as of late, have been flooding my inbox with complete bullshit (and arguably shitty incomplete SAMPLES of songs).

But most importantly, thanks to all the people who send me high-bitrate mp3s. I cannot stress how much this means to me. Things like this tell me that you VALUE you own work as an artist.

To me it says,

“Hey, my work is tops, I don’t want it heard on anything but the best quality it can be. 320kbs all over your chest.”

I am probably more apt to respect your shit if you demonstrate some level of respect for it as well.

Something I can’t understand is an email consisting of,

“hey dude blogger guy, I don’t really give a fuck but you’re on the mailing list I made by crawling hypemachine, here’s my 96kbs track, feel free to play it live and post a blog entry about it.”

10 min later,

“oh sorry bro, i forgot to attach/link the file”

By this point, not only am I bothered that there was a message that failed to deliver with music, I was totally let down by the SHITness of the finally delivered track. Failure to deliver is such a bitch.

I will obviously not play a track that isn’t appealing to me, but I will sure as shit not play something that sounds like it was:
recorded off a ford fiesta fm radio into a lawyer’s spit-encrusted-dictaphone,
re-recorded onto your macbook through the built in microphone,
maxed out the input level because it wasn’t loud enough,
and finally re-compressed.

There isn’t enough time in a day.

hang in there, I’ve got a few weeks to go.

don’t have time to say much more… so listen.

ok, I GOTTA say something about this. Aside from all the Australian label inbreeding, I still can’t seem to get over the magic of Midnight Juggernauts. The spacey synth, church organs, reverb, CASTLEVANIASOUNDS, everything fucking thing they do is so epic and executed in a way that dwarfs everything in comparison. (them being juggernauts and all, LOOK I MAKE THE JOKE)

breaking necks

Maybe if we all scream loud enough, Sven of The Videoband will finally leak/release/materialize/shit out the final mix of La Parisienne. (please check it on myspace if you haven’t)

In the meantime, he’s been teasing me with a number of other remixes which I’ve liked enough to write about.

The teasing, hasn’t stopped, but thankfully everything they send my way is gold!

Here are 2 new remixes.

First up is Sam Sparro’s synthy funk track, Black Gold. If you’ve never heard of the guy, peep his myspace and check ’21st Century Life’. I don’t know much about him, but from his myspace, he kind of looks like a douche. It says he’s on a ‘major label’. Maybe his PR team should hire a new ‘myspace-friend-adder-intern’ and fire this guy who’s making his image really douchey.

Anyway, The Videoband has a knack. That is, they choose tracks with potentially life threatening vocals, slice, repeat, distort, and process them into a beast that has new life and probably way more appeal to you and me. Black Gold is one of these instances. I don’t recommend the original track in the LEAST, but if you do accidentally listen to it with your pitchfork-loving friends, you’ll realize that The Videoband knows what’s up in the ‘vocal-lyrical-fucking-shit-up’ department.

Sam Sparro – Black Gold (the videoband vocal fix remix)

Secondly, David Guetta needs no introduction. The Videoband shows us their take on Guetta’s ‘Delirious’. While this tracks vocals aren’t painful to listen to, The Videoband works their vocal remixing magic on this track and turns the vocals into instruments rather than stupid self-loathing words.

Voices as instruments? Less words, more sounds. Less people sounding stupid, more music sounding better?

PS: keep screaming for The Videoband to drop the Parisienne track. When they do, you’ll see it here.
