Covers! LCD Soundsystem and Joni Mitchell


Here are two covers of great songs. Winter Gloves, a brand new Canadian band take on LCD Soundsystem’s “Someone Great” and turn the epic dance track into a more manageable, but less epic (but still great) 2 minute pop gem. Then Lex Land covers Joni Mitchell’s beautiful classic “River”, using a guitar instead of a piano. Perfect for the holidays.

GLC x RTC – Similar To The Letters Mixtape


Got to check out a dope new mixtape today thanks to the good people at Ruby Hornet. Here’s the explanation behind the project along with a few of my favorites. Go here to check the whole tape.

I am very happy to present GLC X RTC: Similar To The Letters. The mixtape features unreleased GLC material, live performances, new joints, and a guest appearance by Taterchip. Similar To The Letters is a mixtape born out of talks I’ve had with GLC, our shared philosophies, and of course, the three letter monikers that we both employ.

GLC’s full length debut, Love, Life, and Loyalty, also speaks to the principles that define him, and this mixtape serves as a perfect table-setter. The songs presented offer up trials, tribulations, and triumphs in the life of Leonard Harris, with a few touches from RTC.

New! Adele & Mick Boogie – Tracks from 1988


1988 is a great collection of Adele remixes brought to you by Mick Boogie. The goal here was to introduce Adele to a whole new audience by adding a little hip hop into her critically acclaimed album 19. As long as it sounds good, I’m all for it. Here are my favorites.
