I had no idea, but I was just tipped off by Jane Metromix on this devastating news for hipsters everywhere. Father of Steve Aoki, ‘hipster icon in outer space’, Hiraoki Aoki (aka: Rocky), died last week. He was a former speedboat racer, olympic wrestler, pimp, baller, ice cream man, baby maker, and founded the Benihana amusement eating restaurant chain.
The memorial is set for this weekend in New York.
I hope Steve perms his hair in memory of his pops.
Here’s the song that was playing when this news was communicated to me via goog chat.
When you stop, everything else keeps on moving.
Ever since school started, I’ve been coming across some great new music. That, or I just don’t hear new music anymore.
Just got this in the mail today, a couple new tracks from Choreo!
This dude hails out of Germany and I’m definitely hearing some fun little 80’s and indie pop influence in his bangers. Anyway, this track “Cut the Dust” is absolutely killing it. It’s got dirty synth, a banging beat, high hats that make you want to have a SEIZURE!! The intro might leave you wondering if you’re just going to hear the same loop for the whole track, but I assure you just in time for you to skip to the next track, the rewards flow and cuts straight through the dust in an awesome ‘pop/happy/synthy’ buildup for the last verse. Choreo, make the ending last longer!!!
i love music from everywhere in the world.

ANOTHER ONE!!! LET’S GOOO!!
Here’s another new discovery for me! Introducing….MERCURIUS. Probably the coolest remix of two Chromeo songs I’ve ever heard. (probably the only). Anyway, Mercurius takes 100% and Tenderoni, and make a new beast that combines/chops/skews/flips the funnest parts of both tracks. Just take a listen.

Since so many sweet tracks came out recently, I decided to make yet another ghetto mixtape for your displeasure.
Most tracks are my own edits, however, some remain untouched.
pre-apology for getting lazy at the end and not really caring at all.
