#BEEN #TRILL is a DJ/Creative collective that is affiliated with some guy named Kanye. As a part of the launch of their clothing line collabo with cool clothing heavyweight Stussy the crew cooked up a very smooth mix with #rare edits/remixes of everything from Jamie XX to 2 Chainz. This has pretty much been on loop since Thanksgiving. My personal highlight is this Jessie Ware remix. If you know what that Are You That Somebody remix is, drop knowledge in the comments.
I picked this little gem up yesterday at Unique Thrift.
We all remember the classic film; but what about the album it inspired? This late 90′s comp included the likes of Will Smith, Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, Ginuwine, a young Alicia Keys, The Roots, D’Angelo, Trey Lorenz (his name will be the answer to a jeopardy question one day), Nas, Emoja, ATCQ, an early Destiny’s Child, 3T, De La Soul, Buckshot LeFonque, and the legendary Danny Elfman.
Shout out to artists who are smart enough commission Paul White’s work as a producer and double shouts to Charli XCX for recognizing Paul White’s talents beyond hip-hop just like Turkish singer/DJ Ahu did in 2010 with “To:Love”.
It’sthattimeagain where ML frantically packs for the voyage to a farm an hour outside of Nashville. It’s where 100,000 or so attendees get their faces and ears melted off from 4 days of music, comedy, and film.
If you aren’t fortunate enough to make it to Manchester, TN, Youtube has got you covered this year again on the Bonnaroo Channel (click for schedule & more info).
Each year just going through the schedule seems like a daunting task, ML is here to help where we share some of our picks. Check them out after the jump. When you aren’t checking out acts, take a moment to check out the food trucks area, which has stepped up its game for 2012.
On last years preview we mentioned our essential/minimalist packing list, this year we’d like to make one addition: Emergen-C packets/Vitamin C.
One huge thing of note is The Brothers Rosenthal aka Its The Real are like the official interview dudes for the festival.. and they are even performing live their upcoming mixtape (!!) Urbane Outfitters. (Check the preview here).
A year later, Perseus’ remix of “Record Collection” is a seven minute blissful ode to the 80s pop-tinged fun of the original. It will appear on Record Collection 2012, a collection of remixes due out September 5. You can also listen to the Plastic Plates remix in The Magician’s Magic Tape 13 mix below. It starts at 3:57.
After the break, you’ll find several cuts recorded at Mr. Ronson’s gig at the Enmore Theater in Sydney, Australia on March 11, 2011.
It’s offically summer. You know how I know? Nope, it has nothing to do with the heat that people are bitching about on twitter. It is because Arthur King’s annual Summer Mix is here. I almost didn’t want to post this so all you aggregating savage blogs don’t get a sniff, but this man deserves more shine. I’ve been following the guys work since I stumbled his Pop Sh*t mix about 5 years ago. Arthur is a maestro of seamless transitions, remixes, and edits of jams that go hand in hand like Kells and underage girl.
So check out the first 25 minutes of his Summer 2011 mix NOW:
The kicker? If you like what you hear, you will have to buy it. from France.
Sidebar: That guy Knobbz is probably downloading this off the strength of the .gif mixtape cover alone.
If you like what you hear, I’ve procured some personal favorite jams from Arthur’s soundcloud, after the break. Stay tuned, I’m going to try to share the older Summer Mixes soon.
Hence Remix Lungies, ML’s own remix series, where take dope producers out of their element and have them rework pop songs. Today, Bossman, one of the unsung producers behind the wave of great music coming out of of Huntsville, Alabama, (note his skills here, here, here, here, and here) remixes Mike Posner’s “Bow Chicka Wow Wow.” He scrapped the jokey tone of the original and gave it a candied sheen. As the artwork (provided by the amazing Yumi Sakaki) suggests, this is poolside music.
Right after we approached him, Bossman lost power for five days because of the tornadoes that hit the Southern United States in April. The subdivision across the street from his house was destroyed, as well as the houses in front of and behind it. He told us he and his family are doing well.
Our favorite whiteboy Mark Ronson is still on his wild Australian vacation with his band and they stopped by triple j (Aussie radio) to perform “Somebody to Love Me” from Record Collection and then cover “Solitude is Bliss” by Tame Impala. Rose Elinor Dougall, who appeared on three songs on Record Collection, sounds great singing psych rock. Watch the original after the break.
