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, firstname.lastname@example.org) –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.

Happy thanksgiving my American friends. I hope everyone eats hard and fills their bellies and then pops 10 pills of caffeine in order to hurry out to the gobs (pun intended) of thanksgiving parties going on in LA.
I got this remix from LA’s local, BUL!M!ATRON! (Bulimiatron) yesterday, and it’s amazing what some drum layering and especially……………HAND CLAPS (take note everyone) can do to an already impressive Boys Noize track.
