Raise Your Weapon

30 Nov

We brought you the HQ rip when this first dropped on his Ustream and now we bring you the 320 kbps album version. This is the standout track from Deadmau5’s upcoming album 4×4=12 and shows how the Mau5 is incorporating new genres of electronic music into his productions. Pre-order the album here or grab it when it hits stores on Dec. 7th.

Too Numb – New The Streets Song/Video

30 Nov

I first heard The Streets many years ago when I went through my own personal British Invasion. Trying to snap up everything and anything I could on the British music scene.

Fast forward almost five years and The Streets is still releasing new material, although this may be the last album we can expect from him. Computers and Blues is expected to be released on Febuary 7th and is said to be the last record Mike Skinner will put out, at least under the name The Streets.

I’ve got two videos for you today. One is his new song Too Numb off his newest album, and the song that made me a fan, Dry Your Eyes Mate. Enjoy.

 

New Dallas Green Song feat. Shad

30 Nov

It’s been a while since Dallas Green has done anything outside of Alexisonfire, but songs are starting to emerge which is always a good sign.

Live Forever dropped last week and seems to be a new Dallas Green and Shad song. Its not something that most City and Color fans would expect but I personally love it.

I’d like to see more of these two together, possibly an album? You never know, but you can dream. Check out Live Forever below.

Black Cards E-603 Mashup

29 Nov

Since Fall Out Boy kind of… fell a part last year each member has been off doing there own thing. Well Pete Wentz Simpson has been busy recording with a so called experimental electronic band. One of there songs was recently thrown into a mashup featuing Drake, Lil Wayne and Chiddy Band. Definately worth a listen. Check it out below.

 

 

Good Old Video

29 Nov

Got a live studio session video from indie rockers Good Old War. The combination of layered vocals and acoustic vibe sold me on this video. They perform Coney Island from there 2008 release Only Way To Be Alone here. Not much else to say, check this out you will love this band.

Clockwork Music

29 Nov

Henry Steinway, aka Clockwork has been infiltrating the intra web with dirty electro beats and heavy hitting remixes for the past year. He came onto my radar when he dropped a mashup of Lil’ Wayne vs. The Office theme song (see below) and since then I have been continually impressed with the diversity in his music as you will see from the following tracks. Check out his newest remix which will be released on Guys & Dolls Records, December 6th… this one is MASSIVE!! Get connected with Clockwork on:

Lights Performs With Bring Me The Horizon

28 Nov

Not too long ago Bring Me The Horizon released their third full length LP and it blew me away. Totally surprised me with the growth they had made since their last record and every song on the album is amazing.

I have posted a song or two off their latest release There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heaven Lets Keep It A Secret, but this song was one of my favourite.

Don’t Go features Canadian pop star Lights. She has been making the rounds lately after just finishing up her cross country tour with Michou. She is also in talks with Deadmau5 to do a collaboration some time in the new year.  Expect big things from her in a number of genres in the not too distant future.

Check out the video as well as the CDQ song below.

Frank Sinatra Re-Re-Remixed

26 Nov

Sitting in class, bored as fuck, so obviously i’m scouring the web for tunes. Then out of the blue Kaskade drops another (free) track on his soundcloud. I am curious to see how a Frank Sinatra remix is going to sound but I have no doubt that Kaskade has once again given it the golden touch. If you missed monday’s freebie check it here. This is what the man had to say about this one.

I love Christmas music, so I had a lot of fun doing this remix. I did it in 2004 but in the end the label that hired me could not get the rights to use it. Drop it in to your holiday shuffle.

Twitter Artist of the Week – Illa Scorsese

26 Nov

A couple of days ago, I got a message on twitter from Illa Scorsese. He sent me a track and I was instantly impressed. Originally from North Philly Illa has appeared on stage with the likes of Jim Jones, Young Jeeze and Lil Wayne. Thats quite the accomplishment if you ask me.

Knockin Out The Bottom is a track off his upcoming independently released album Illavation. Look out for that in the spring of 2011. I’m sure we’ll be doing more with Illa in the new year.

Illa prides himself on his legal hustle habits and introducing everyday situations in his raps. I really enjoy this song and listen for it on this week’s Webisode. Check out Knockin Out The Bottom below.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Is Here

24 Nov

Unless you have been living under a rock, you should know that the new Kanye West album dropped this week. Let me just apologize for now throwing a bunch of posts up, but its been a crazy week with school and I have only listened to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy this week. Honestly since I got my copy on monday I have been listening to it non-stop. Easily the album of the year. And I’m not the only one who thinks that.

Pitchfork gave the album a perfect rating, Rolling Stone magazine gave it 5 stars, Best Coast called out the haters and told the world how amazing the album is. Even Soupy from The Wonder Years commented on how good the album was on twitter.

Love him or hate him, Kanye knows how to make a scene and how to make an album. There is not a bad tune on the album, and a lot of the G.O.O.D. Friday tracks that made the album have added verses or production on them.

I am going to play a song off this album on this weeks webisode, but until then check out the album version of Devil In A New Dress which features a verse from Rick Ross. Check that out below.

Buy My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy here, you will not be disappointed.

New Song From The Get Up Kids

24 Nov

After being in semi-retirement for 7 years, ’90s emo ambassadors are back. The Get Up Kids are prepping for a new album release in early 2011. There Are Rules will be the first release in 7 years and I am extremely excited for it. Their big album from 1999, Something To Write Home About, is one of the best emo albums before the genre was diluted with shitty bands.

Regent Court is a short but sweet song that will remind you of your teenage years. The Get Up Kids still command a huge audience and following even though they were never mainstream rock stars. They sold out arenas in their day and if their reunion shows are any indication, they will have no problem filling the seats.

Check out Regent Court below and listen for this song on this weeks Webisode.

He has reached rock star status and he still releases free music every monday on his soundcloud. Check this week’s deep house mix that he made back in 2003 and also the Sultan & Ned Shepard Electro remix to ‘Fire In Your New Shoes’. Biiiig Tunes!

So apparently I missed the boat on this one as its been around for awhile but thanks to someofitwastrue.com I can share it with you today. Ben Folds covers the classic Dr. Dre tune which makes for a hilarious rendition of gangsta rap turned acoustic.
