I received this album in the mail while I was living in Paris in 2005, its by an old band mate of mine from the late 90s. He’s been in so many music projects over the years that range in sound from super experimental to this shoe gazy warm wave pop (yes i just made that up) :
If you like that, don’t be shy, listen to the full album here, my 2nd favorite track is Omega Does 40. The rest of the album gets weird at times, check it out here:
This man has tons of recordings, listen endlessly here.
i’ve been creepin on these miami kids, check them out.
i need a break, cue in the house music!
My parents had this on vinyl and when I first started djing I played out the same record, its a standard:

Last weekend Kendrick Lamar performed on Saturday Night Live which I’m sure you missed, you party animal you. Check out the two songs he performed:

All the girls wanna play Baywatch!
Are you feeling that Janet Jackson sample or what? If you don’t, trust me, it will grow on you.
Here’s a remix for Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe by Kill Them With Color:
I got a visit this past weekend from my Chicago buddy, the enigma, the knowledgeable Seven Bedard, from Chocolate Industries and check out his wonderful tumblr while you’re at it: The A NN Ex. He explained to me the music I was currently listening to was called chopped and screwed.
Excuse me for my ignorance but this hasn’t happened to me in a long time.. You know when you come across something and you find out its a whole genre and its called something and you’re like the last one to find out? Yeah that was me. No one invited me to that party. WAMP WAMP.
So let’s embark on the journey by starting off with this documentary by Vice:
this song is making me crazy. who did it? what’s going on? why is the slowed down music make me so nutso? why does it feel like its everywhere? is that shit trending or what? ever since i heard birdy nam nam’s cadillac dreams (posted last year) i hear slowed down music everywhere i go.
label is called beer on the rug

not gonna comment on the video visuals right now but everyones videos are starting to look the same, just saying..
and here’s a slowed down topper:
romy schneider is definitely stealing away all the attention from this song. the footage is from an unfinished film L’Enfer which turned into a semi documentary with the unused footage. I’m in the process of trying to acquire a link to this, I’ll keep you updated!
oh wait, back to lee hazlewood, woops my bad. this song is terribly haunting. it’s leaving a footprint in my brain. i get weirdly obsessed with songs and listen to them over and over, feel free to do the same download here
thanks to town full of losers for the free download.
oh my god, what is going on here? is this america? is this europe? is this a white power 90s work out video? i’m so damn confused. the dancing is so epically terrible and mesmerizing that i totally forget about the music playing, i like the song but the video kicks ass!
so i did a bit a research, i just had to.. turns out its footage is from a rave in antwerp, belgium; well that explains all the raved out whiteys now don’t it? Thunderdome 97’ must have been a blast because we are still talking about it over a decade later.
spot the one brown looking dude i dare you.
