MURS vs. Blue Sky Black Death – Can It Be (EvanAwake Remix)

January 24, 2011

Lots to like about this mash.  Vocals from Murs “Can It Be” (which had a great MJ sample in the original) over BSBD’s “Days are Years” which, if you havent heard them, I’d describe as the hip-hop flavored version of Explosions in the Sky.*  Apparently EvanAwake has done an entire mashup album similar to this, which I will most likely download immediately.

*and if you havent heard them, then cot damn you are missing out.  basically if they are playing in the background, they can make the most trivial & mundane moments in your life feel cinematic.

Master Blazter (Dam Funk, Computer Jay, & J-1)

January 23, 2011

Dam Funk always kind of annoyed me b/c he was a) associated with peanut butter wolf and b) always coming up on search results when I was actually looking for the supremely-talented Damu the Fudgemunk.  These guys don’t “normally” play together and are accomplished on their own right.  But simply put, this is very chill and very funky, and I’m glad I came across it (and also glad as it reminds me of Clyde Frazier and one of his many famous lines following a thunderous New York Knickerbocker dunk: “Wilson Chandler the MASTER BLASTER with his ubiquitous presence electrifying the garden faithful slicing through the Bull’s matador D”).

Check out the following for a taste from the Dam Funk/Computer Love’s EP from All City’s L.A. Series Volume 7.  Dam Funk and Computer Jay trade instrumentals in this 5 song EP.  I personally prefer the Computer Love tracks, as they are similarly synth-funky, but a bit more hip-hop driven vs. Dam Funk’s sister tracks

ATCQ Documentary

January 23, 2011

^ Yes, these do exist.

FYI

“Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest is premiering at The Sundance Film Festival this weekend.  Peanut Butter Wolf is the music supervisor of the film, Madlib has created original music for the score.  The film is directed by Michael Rapaport.”

I am:

97% psyched that this exists.

1% disappointed by PBW (?) being the music supervisor.  You’re not J. Dilla buddy.  Stop trying.

1% redeemed that PBW is only the music supervisor and Madlib is actually creating the score.

1% weirded out in a way that Michael Rapaport did this. Though anybody involved in True Romance pretty much has a lifetime pass.
