You know, we always forget to realize that musicians and entertainers in general are people too. I completely forgot that Dr. Dre’s son died until it was mentioned in this song, and now I feel a little bit worse about bitching about Detox when Dre was going through some obvious personal problems. So here, we have Eminem pleading to Dre to let Em help him because Dr. Dre “literally saved his life*” many years ago and Em feels like he owes him. And a part of me likes this song, because few rappers are as candid as Eminem and there’s something riveting about music when you know the artist is being completely open and honest about their life.

How dope is that cover? Anyways, Fleet Foxes released the debut single for their sophomore album today and its exactly what you’d expect. I’m not sure if the lyrics are too literal or not tho. In any case, the switchup right before three minutes in is what dreams are made of. Included my favorite track form their debut. Quit your job and function as a cog in the That Whiiite machine.
Helplessness Blues (the album) out May 3rd.
I feel a little guilty posting this cause it’s old, but whatever I still love it. Just so much energy and fun. The thing I love most about Skrillex is that he can transform songs seamlessly from electro to dubstep and vice versa, but his overpowering basslines present a unique brand, if you will. Detractors will be quick to call him a one-trick pony, but if you listen to this back-to-back with say, “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites“, you’ll see that he’s more versatile than a healthy amount of electronic artists. Really excited for whatever he’s putting out next.
Didn’t you hear? Disco is the new shit. I love songs like this. 2012 in 2010, which makes this a time machine, not just any blog. No D/L available for this one.
Update: Posted this one way back when but just had the Soundcloud stream. Here’s the best quality D/L I could find. This has to be one of my favorite 5 tracks I’ve posted here thusfar, along with (off the top of my head) 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Fuuck, can’t believe it’s been two months. 4000+ views, I’m honestly shocked. Check the Behind the Scenes sidebar, I’m gonna do a two-month recap either later today or tomorrow hopefully.
All I’m going to say is there’s a Tommy Lee remix. lol. Since fuckin when?
Hit the jump for more remixes!
DJs: here’s a perfect excuse to put “Infinity” back into your sets. As I’ve said time and time again, the simplest mashups are the best. Also put on Kaskade’s “Teenage Dream” remix.
