a new sound to come

"I like geometric shapes" Theophilus London

Brooklyn's electro rapper Theophilus is getting major airplay on MTV. I'm am glad to say the underground is coming up. You can catch him in short segments after tv shows. The recent relationship of MTV and Green Label Sound has given more exposure to alot of my favorite artists like Chromeo, U-N-I, Holy Ghost! and of course Theophilus London.

Steve Aoki = the greatness

Steve Aoki has been turning out remixes like crazy lately

Kid Cudi - Pursuit Of Happiness - (Steve Aoki Dance Remix) (mp3)

Drake feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Eminem - Forever (Steve Aoki Remix) (mp3)
basically the same song sped up besides a cool dubstep vibe during Eminem's verse

Animal Collective released Fall Be Kind EP
and it received an 8.9 from Pitchfork

Graze (mp3)
my favorite track from the EP. It's about and it amazingly changes into a bouncy flute based melody that makes you feel like your at a medieval festival.

What Would I Want Sky (mp3)
The song contains the FIRST legally licensed sample from the Grateful Dead. Its basically about uncertainty and confusion.
