Still an Animal.

"Diwon is something else …in a profound kind of way. The New Yorker gets crafty when it comes to beats by extracting world music—mainly traditional Yemenite music-- and fusing it with electro hip hop; creating a titillating sound that’s juicy and for the ears. His musical influence developed from his migration from Yemen to Ethiopia to Israel". URB

Introduce to yourself to Diwon. His remix of Miike Snow's Animal should be a good first impression.

Let me tell you something, all that glitters ain't gold

Aloe Blacc's original version "I need a Dollar" has been making its rounds these past couple months around the internet to say the least. It's the theme song for HBO's How to Make it in America, which I happened to watch the entire first season in one day last month. Blacc is no one trick pony, putting out great music for the last 15 years and frequently jumping back and forth from Hip/hop to R&B, Blacc has an extremely soulful voice that paired with retro-production and dope lyricism always leads to a great listen. Recently I came across a subtle remix from French producer Stern* that adds some bass, turns up the tempo a bit, and maybe adds some happiness into a poor man's ode.

Mashups have been jumping into the poop like crazy and peeing in it even though they know they shouldn't. But this one makes me happy that mashups exist, RJD2 x Jurrasic 5
What's Golden has lyrics that just don't stop and are perfect for the feel of RJD2.
Somebody needs to mashup Starwars and Jurassic Park now and make what would be known as the bests movie during the reign of man kind!!!!!

Keep talking that chat Gucci Mane

So Gucci Man is out of jail and boy he's got some cars up his sleeve now! His future plans include
  1. "Start up Brick Squad Records record label."
  2. "Begin recording with rapper Wacka Flocka Flame in the near future.
  3. Tour the nation being the G he is
Mad Decent made a shirt to celebrate the occasion right ova hiya
PREVIEW@!#@!....Keeeeeeeeep scroooooooooling

Mad Decent's own Diplo created something called the Cold War mixtapes
The mixtapes make's work of Gucci's lyrics
example: "I just shitted on your ride, but my nikes match my necklace and my necklace match my rims...something. blow my nose, probation GUCCI." Well if you didn't know anything about gucci you now know everything that you need to!
Ignoring the mixtape is hard though, highlighting names like Bird Peterson, Douster, Benzi aka Mr. Get Right & Willy Joy, Brodinski, Flying lotus as well as a handful more. YEahhhhhHHHHH
It's worth the free download though, because it's entertaining as hell and the production work is top shelf as well as the gltiches, pops, synths, breaks and the basslines that make you want to smoke crack. SKEEERTTTTTTT

Break it down.

Off Big Boi's upcoming album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, here is a funkadelic, narty and old Outkastesque summer jam Shutterbugg. Surprisingly, its produced by Scott Storch who must have finally realized that he needs to produce to get out of the red. Nevertheless, get ready to start dancing in your chair.

There's something about Crystal Castles that I've always really enjoyed even though I can't pinpoint it. Going of Levo's previous post I figured I put up another mix featuring Rihanna, which combines Rude Boy and CC's Baptism. If you haven't checked out The Hood Internet by now.....get on the train.

Rhianna likes it rude

Rhianna has already had an experience with a rude boy so I'm not sure why this song is about her getting beat up. I guess some girls just like it dirty and rude like that. Thanks Chris Brown for the inspiration! Anyways, here's a remix which makes the original seem like a bag of mulch. TC brings the remix heavy and dirty, like a bag of manure, but nicer than that. The video is below and the track itself is below that with the link to the download spot. Enjoy the weekend everyone! even though you probably have like 10 finals tomorrow.

Starry Eyed

A bit late with these remixes of Starry Eyed by Ellie Goulding but it'll be worth posting them up regardless. Ellie is from England and has been on the seen since 2009 and her track "Starry Eyed" has grabbed the attention of many producers and dj's for it's catchy lyrics and soft melodies that are already infused with a really great feeling electric rhythm. The original track already has some small remix treasures seeing as how Starsmith a well known remixer and composer from the UK. He's worked with the likes of Katy Perry, Little Boots, Passion Pit, Paloma Faith, Marina and the Diamonds, Lady Gaga, Boy Crisis, The Twang and Frankmusik. Below you'll find two remixes of the track both of them being pretty amazing in their own ways. The Russ Chimes mix has a much more trance/electric feel to it and is much faster but I love the piano breakdowns in it so much, really such a body mover! The Jakwob remix is personally my favorite because I love the heavy bass way too much. I mean it's got the dub-drop half way through the track and it rocks so hard, makes my whole body bob to the beat. Not as much for the club but just as much for the right type of club scene!!! Speaking of heavy bass, there's nothing like some Bassnectar. Also, if you don't have a bass somewhere in your casa better rethink your life because bass is the essence of a song. Check out the heavy drop of the Fever Ray remix by Bassnectar at the bottom of these tracks, and the video for Starry Eyed!

You Can't Imagine How Much Fun We're Having

What's up all? New poster here and when I first logged in I saw there were no Atmosphere posts! What's the deal with that? Atmosphere is a duo from Minne-snow-ta consisting of rapper, Slug, and producer, Ant. Don't be thrown off by the insect misnomers, they're pretty much the premier artists for the label Rhymesayers. They're a unique duo with more floe than an iceberg and I attribute it to the tailor-made beats to the lyrics. They have this interesting, ongoing thing where they intro some songs with a few bars about some girl meeting the devil so ignore that on Modern Man's Hustle and I guarantee you'll dig the track. Next up is a Swedish band called The Sounds. They're fronted by a lovely young Swedish woman (tall, blonde, amazing stage presence), and they usually start their songs out rockin' and eventually move into a hot mess of danceable magic. Another group I want to throw at you is The Faint. I used to listen to these guys back in high school and recently rediscovered them through a chance encounter with a Paul Oakenfold remix of Glass Danse. They're definitely different (considering Conor Oberst used to be in the band, and they're on his label explains a lot) but they definitely know how to crank out some noise. I'm also pretty sure they don't have a 'c' key.

And now a riddle...
Q. How do you make a Rhymesayers song better?
A. Turn it into a Sufjan Stevens mashup. - Get the entire mixtape here:
