i thought mondays were supposed to suck? i had an excellent interview (completely non-music related), found an excellent charity compilation with tracks by diplo, lcd, eli and devendra banhart, and when i hit up my google reader i saw some innanet-gems.
buraka som sistema are giving away a new mixtape, and fool’s gold have rounded up ALL the free tracks they’ve given to rcrd lbl in advance of a party the two are putting on tomorrow. shame it’s in nyc. anyway my personal favourites have to be the surkin remix of acid life, a-trak‘s remix of bounce, and pretty much everything involving kid sister. one in particular is her freestyle over green velvet‘s shake and pop, the standout from the otherwise mediocre pillowface mix cd. apparently her album is on the way – see here for an insightful interview.
Sometimes you just gotta let it marinate. I need to make something I’m proud of. So don’t hate! We’re doing it as fast as we can. In the meantime, let’s tell knock-knock jokes on Twitter: Knock knock. Who’s there? Your album. Oh, wait– just kidding. It’ll never end.
EDIT: oh yeah and there’s a oizo remix of n.a.s.a. floating around too 😉

i haven’t really been impressed with mstrkrft‘s recent output. apart from vuvuvu, and maybe bounce when i’m in a particular kind of mood, nothing on fist of god really grabbed me. but laidback luke can pretty much do no wrong. it’s huge, the pianos are stretched to pieces, the percussion is suitably insane and, well, it’s laidback luke! of course it’s awesome.
