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."

Kimbra - Settle Down (Feature Cuts Remix)

Kimbra – Settle Down (Feature Cuts Remix)

Maybe y’all already knew this, but this Kimbra chick is apparently kinda hot sh*t at the moment. All of a sudden I keep hearing about her, and just bought her album Vows on Emusic. I had anticipated it being much more indie-kid, but in reality it has a nice quirky soulfulness to it. Adding to...
Andreya Triana - "Far Closer (Tokimonsta Remix)"

Andreya Triana – “Far Closer (Tokimonsta Remix)”

Andreya Triana’s album Lost Where I Belong was one of 2010’s gems. You may have heard her distinctive vocals previously on works with Flying Lotus (“Tea Leaf Dancers“), Bonobo, Aaron Jerome and more. Lost Where I Belong is her solo debut, and while retaining some elements of the experimental, it’s also a very warm, kinda...
Little Dragon - 1-O.A.K. Remix of Blinking Pigs

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...

Little Dragon – After The Rain (Floating Points Remix)

Garth Trinidad just threw us this none-too-shabby bone – a badass remix of “After The Rain” by Floating Points. Floating Points has got dopeness a-plenty goin’ on for himself – http://www.myspace.com/floatingpoints Listen to “After The...

Stereotree Presents: Beat Heroes Collection Vol 2 By Tayreeb

Well dang, talk about coming outta nowhere. An email landed in my inbox over the holidays with a link to another free producer mixtape/compilation thingy. I dutifully downloaded it but only recently got around to listening. Well I’m glad I didn’t let this one slip through the net. Stereotree is a French blog that seems...
Common S.T.O.R.Y - Beatnick and K-Salaam

Common S.T.O.R.Y – Beatnick and K-Salaam

So as Common prepares to release Universal Mind Control, an album that I suspect will be either loved or hated in a similar way to Electric Circus, Beatnick & K-Salaam have put together a retrospective that reminds us what we loved about Common in the first place. Common S.(tories) T.(old) O.(ver) R.(emixed) Y.(ears) features some...

LMFAO - Kanye West - Love Lockdown Remix

LMFAO – Kanye West – Love Lockdown Remix

So I think this autotune thingamabob madness that’s going on is for the birds and am sad that Kanye has jumped on that bandwagon with such gusto. Producers just need to stop with it already. Please. And why is Kanye “singing” like his jaw is still wired shut? Young man needs to enunciate. But having...
