Master Shortie – "Dead End" (Don Diablo Knows You Like It Hard Remix)


This song snaked into my email 5 days ago, and I overlooked it since my inbox looks like your life on a Monday morning. One thing I’m still learning is to never ignore Don Diablo. Never. If he dishes out 5 remixes in one day, then you listen to those 5 remixes. Because chances are they are all going to be monsters.

Here he turns the forthcoming Master Shortie single “Dead End” into a club banger. Check the video for the original “Dead End” above, and the mp3 for the remix below. I know you like electro.

Music Video! The Gossip – Heavy Cross


Not sure how I feel about Beth Ditto, but I like this song. The Gossip’s album Music For Men will be dropping June 22nd. The album was produced by the bearded bad ass Rick Rubin. Here is what Ditto said about the album:

There’s a shit-load of love songs in there,” she declared. “Writing down the tracklisting, we had about 14 songs and seven had the world ‘love’ in the title. I had no idea I was so romantic. via NME.

Fresh Daily – Hard Work (Flying Lotus)


If this bass doesn’t scramble your internals, go get your gut checked. Excellent production by Flying Lotus. Fresh Daily is nice too, but shit, I can’t stop focusing on this bass. So good. For me, Flying Lotus has always seemed like a more hyped, less consistent Madlib (this song reminds me of that “Figaro” beat from Madvillain), but I can’t deny the man has moments of genius, and this is one of them.

Fresh Daily – Hard Work (Prod. Flying Lotus)

And in case you haven’t heard it, here’s “Figaro”. It’s one of my favorites from the classic MF DOOM/Madlib collabo Madvillain. Producers out there: can someone mash this shit up? DOOM’s “Figaro” vocals over the Flying Lotus beat?

New! Lil Wayne ft. Gucci Mane – "We Be Steady Mobbin"


This song is the shit! Definitely making it to the iPod. Production by Kane Beatz. So many good Wayne lines in here. Sometimes it’s not what you say but how you say it. Examples given:

You can not reach my on my Samsung, I’m busy fuckin’ the world and givin’ the universe my damn tongue. Crazy motherfucker? I am one. But the crazy thing is, I began one.

Big house, long hallways. Ten bathrooms, I could shit all day.

Yeah, I’m the best to ever do it, bitch. And you the best at never doin’ shit.

New! Little Boots – "Magical" "Love Kills" and "Not Now"


Two days ago, Little Boots released her debut album, “Hands“, in the UK and has already recieved good reviews and sales so far. For the US and Canada, she released her 3rd EP “Illuminations” instead, including 3 tracks not included in the debut album, paired along with “New In Town” and “Stuck On Repeat”. via Mossip.

Say hello to one of my (many) guilty pleasures. With that weird instrument of hers and the Kid Cudi cover, Lil’ Boots stole my heart a while ago. I don’t bump this on the regular, but I support Little Boots for sure and if you like pop music, you should check her out. If you don’t listen to any pop music, c’mon, lighten up guy.

Little Boots – Magical

Little Boots – Love Kills

Little Boots – Not Now
