I’ve written about Black Light Dinner Party before here, here, and even here, and if you’re a smart person you’ll click every single one of those links. Now that you’ve done that take a listen to the whole EP released by the enigmatic group who produce some of the best music that I’ve heard in forever. True story, and forever is a mighty long time. Since the embed isn’t working you can check it out here. After you listen buy it on iTunes. I already said you were smart right?
Man… If you have been following me for awhile you already know that RAC is one of my favorite remixers out now, with his remix of Phoenix’s Armistice being an all time favorites. His remixes just have this feel good vibe to them that makes you want to dance no matter what mood you are in. This is his first single as a solo artist and it doesn’t disappoint in the slightest. Like the press release said this might be the most summery song that I’ve heard so far this year.
Two quick thoughts about this song and Maroon 5, first up does Adam Levine ever have a relationship that goes right? It’s like every song is him complaining about heartbreak. Second Maroon 5 has a black dude in the group? Will wonders ever cease? Payphone is the first single from their upcoming album, and Wiz shows up to dial in a quick verse so Maroon 5 can seem cool again I guess?
Okay. You may know Jai Paul from his breakout single BTSU, which has been sampled and remade by Drake, Pusha T, and Beyonce. Drake used it for Dreams Money Can Buy, so that’s probably the one most familiar to you. Anyway since then the wonder kid has been mostly silent up until a few days ago when he released Jasmine, an amazingD’Angeloish on acid and shrooms love ballad. This is one of those songs that you just have to hear again and again to truly appreciate, so press play and get on with it. Go listen to more from him at his soundcloud after that. You’re welcome.
“All of these records were made in about a 3 week period of time. So I was in the same mental space throughout the creation of them,” says Eddy. “Sean O’Connell added his touch to the recording of the vocals, so everyone that I really love working with that I respect musically got to touch this project in some way.”
Haven’t heard a lick of this project yet, but something about it makes me think it’s worth a post. After the break you can download it for yourself, and catch some video of McKenzie and Curren$y in the latest Muscle Car Chronicles episode.
I swear for a city that’s supposedly dying out Detroit sure seems to get it popping on the music scene. Guitar god Dennis Coffey joined soul upstart Meyer Hawthorne for this performance down in the motor city. If you haven’t picked up the House Shoes mix cd featuring the great Mr. Coffey then do so here. Now.
I got this in my email this morning, listened to it and hated it the first time I heard it. The beat knocks like shit, but the vocals threw me off. I listened again though, and now I can’t stop playing it. It sounds like the very end of a drunk frat party in the middle of the woods, if it was djed by me. You know, it’s not going to suck itself. #pleasedontstare
