Aneurysm + Remixes EP (Mini Mix Promo) by clashthediskokids
I was gonna save this 'til the weekend which is when I'm gonna post most of the electronic stuff on my new 'schedule' but I don't want be too overloaded on the weekend and these guys have kind of an 'indie' sensibility about what they do anyway. BTW: ever notice that the indie rock bloggers almost NEVER post on the weekend though? There's gotta be a cultural explanation for that, right?
Anyway, here's the science: I've featured these cats before. This is their official commercially-released 4-track EP though. The above is a preview promo mini-mix of it. You can BUY the full thing at Beatport HERE.
01 Clash The Disko Kids - Aneurysm (Original)
02 Clash The Disko Kids - Aneurysm (Wazabi Remix)
03 Clash The Disko Kids - Aneurysm (Nando Remix)

I just saw the email that had these videos right now. Apparently homegirl, who is half-Chilean/Half-French, is playing live in the T.dot tonight! Curious who exactly would go out to see her live - is she known... at all?? Her looking like Eva Mendes' slightly less hot-looking sister might help though....

As you might have noticed, I've been mostly focusing on alternative/indie rock type stuff today. This is part of a plan of mine to blog on more of a planned schedule so I can manage this sh-t a little better although I might get into some hip hop and more traditionally 'urban' stuff a little later.
Tomorrow's gonna be 'T.dot Thursday' so if you're a Toronto (or Canadian, even) artist, better get me your sh-t ASAP so I can check it out in time.....

So help me out here: how is the Hutaree, this so-called 'Christian Militia' that plotted to kill a policeman and bomb his funeral in the hope of spurring an anti-government uprising different than your standard-issue ragtag Al Qaeda-inspired Muslim terror cell?? [Guardian]
And watch the video above: dude chooses his words very carefully saying his 'citizen militia' group disassociated themselves from the Hutaree after 'training' them, once they learned of their beliefs. But beyond that and his dubious claim that his group's primary mission is to function in a quasi-FEMA/National Guard role in times of emergency and not as a Christian fundamentalist, survivalist group like the Hutaree, I'm not sure why I shouldn't look at him sideways too the same Tea Baggers, xenophobes and other right wing racists do all Muslim or brown people in the wake of every new Muslim terror incident.

From Rory at Vice/VBS.TV:
"We've been fascinated by the London pirate radio scene for a while now. It's a story that features a crew of kids breaking on to rooftops and getting radio geeky by erecting terrestrial radio stations and old school antennas and then using modern technology to spread the word and the music. It's a story that had to be told, so we did and it's called London Pirate Frequencies."
Artists / DJs / Stations also featured in the piece include:
Matt Mason (host and author of Pirate's Dilemma)
Logan Sama (former pirate, now KISS FM DJ)
Jammer (Grime legend MC & Producer)

This is FIYA! Let it ride for minute and let the groove sink in and eventually take you over. This may not be 100% on-point, but as rough points of reference, if you dig Air and The Phenomenal Handclap Band, you might could f-ck with this. Here's the official plug in case I'm just trainwrecking the pitch though:
"Prins Thomas is now intrinsically linked to the eclectic and often termed ‘cosmic-disco’ sounds emanating from his homeland, Norway. Alongside Hans-Peter Lindstrøm their eponymous debut album and follow up II have opened up their tripped out sounds to a whole new audience of music lovers. Having already garnered international acclaim for his own DJing skills the world over and with a staggeringly impressive remix CV it comes as some surprise that after all that music and after all these years, we now have Prins Thomas's debut solo album!"

Dimitri From Paris-35 min of Philly Sound PROMO by bbemusic
Streaming-only for this promo mix sorry to say even though Dimitri is talking all over it and its snippets anyway rendering it kind of worthless for bootleggers. This 2-CD set including one disc with the original versions sounds like its gonna be pretty monstrous though. Here's the official plug:
"BBE Records proudly presents its 5th and arguably most exciting compilation with the French dj and ambassador of disco, Dimitri from Paris. This compilation focuses on Dimitri’s essential disco era tracks - made in Philadelphia, that feature the core of the rhythm section that created and defined the sound of the genre. For this compilation Dimitri has exclusively reworked 5 tracks from the original multitrack tapes of Gamble and Huff with a further 4 being edited from the original 2 track stereo masters."

Of all the memorable sweaty Raw Fusion parties we've had at WMC we think this year's will be the most exciting session yet!
Upstairs Rich Medina, Rainer Trüby, Simbad, Eddy Ramich and Raw Fusion's very own Mad Mats will treat you to everything from deep'n'techy house, sweet'n'soulful r&b, dark dubstep/UK funky, gritty hip-hop, funk 45s, disco edits, skankin' reggae and soulful house/broken jams. Downstairs it's all about keeping it real deal, for the real deal feel, with Ge-Ology, Kon & Amir, Scribe, OP! and Jon Oliver spinning 100% vinyl jams (no laptops allowed, ed note: er what?? Who's covering those extra freight charges??) all night long. If we know theses guys, you'll be served both big classics and those obscure headspinners.

Slight musical detour to close out the night...
At the risk of dating myself, I grew up on this man's music from his first band, The Jam (google them) up to his solo music today. Before I got into hip hop, his fixation as a mod with both classic 60's and contemporary black music introduced me to many artists from Curtis Mayfield to the Chi-Lites. Some of his recent solo music has sounded kind of complacent and betrayed his youthful pledge to never become staid artistically like his former musical heroes, Pete Townsned and Eric Clapton but these remixes of tracks from his forthcoming new album, Wake Up The Nation suggest he's once again become open to current musical sounds like he was during his Jam and Style Council days. Check the plug:
"Paul Weller releases his tenth studio solo album Wake Up The Nation on April 19th on Island Records.
After an unparalleled career, characterised by constant musical experimentation, we should be used to Paul Weller's relentless desire to chop and change his musical pack. But after the triumphant, Brit-bagging success of 22 Dreams (his third solo number one) Wake Up The Nation album sees rock's most iconic songwriter come up trumps once more.
Lean, mean and as uncompromisingly focused as it's maker, Wake Up The Nation also brings Paul Weller full circle: twenty-eight years on from The Jam's split, two tracks feature the former bassist Bruce Foxton. The album also sees contributions from My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields, The Move's Bev Bevan and legendary session drummer Clem Cattini.
Passion, progression, and, as ever, spine-tingling rock'n'roll -Paul Weller has, yet again delivered the perfect soundtrack as we embark on a new decade."

"This week on ItsTheReal.com, we analyze the lyrics of iTunes' favorite nu-pop princess Ke$ha, and get into a Bad Boy frame of mind, like Being P. Diddy, in Deconstructing Ke$ha."
"The Prologue is a two-part introduction into Aleon Craft (the artist) and The Solar-Hop Chronicles (a collection of his music to be released in the future). The Prologue Pt. 1 (released Monday, March 15th) is the first installment of the 2-part project (Part 2 out Monday, April 19th). Independently, The Prologue Pt. 1, and Pt. 2, is an incomplete representation of Craft.
Part 1 & 2 are two sides of the same coin. Each project depicts a different side of Craft, and together they represent the range of music that he creates. The project is split into 2 parts so that the listener can properly digest the music, and ideally have a better understanding of Aleon Craft, the artist. Aleon Craft’s The Prologue will be released in full on April 26th."
