Progressive soul, hip-hop and electronic music

AKG K 240 Semi-Open Studio Headphones

Great for DJs!

"The new K 240 Studio delivers even wider dynamic range and higher sensitivity than its well-known and widely-used predecessor. The secret to the semi-open K 240 Studio's sound quality is the new XXL transducers in acoustically tuned vented enclosures with circumaural (around the ear) pads. The circumaural pads envelope your ears nicely and reward you with smooth, solid bass and well-balanced, articulate mids and highs."

Little Dragon – 1-O.A.K. Remix of Blinking Pigs

Hot damn. This track is like, whoa. Seriously though, 1-O.A.K. did a ridiculous job of turning Little Dragon’s “Blinking Pigs” into a beautiful, hip-hop n’ jazz inflected head-nodder. 1-O.A.K, is Oakland’s Brandon McFarland – a vocalist, musician and producer who is part of the Bay Area Collective the Honor Roll. He entered this remix, titled...

GB Interprets His Contemporaries

Credit to Illmami @ Soulbounce for posting this. I was huge fan of GB’s Soundtrack For Sunrise album waaay back in 2004 but hadn’t heard much from GB since. Not sure if that’s because he wasn’t up to much, or I just wasn’t up on it. Either way I was excited to see that this...

Love Note To Little Dragon

My Dearest Little DragonI by no means fall easily but since the warm opening notes of “Twice” first caressed my ears, I was quickly smitten. Infatuation rapidly blossomed into something all the more captivating as I explored all that your Myspace had to offer. “Test”, “Constant Surprises” and other delights revealed to me your innate...
