The Knife – Heartbeats

My homegirl Michelle in San Diego turned me onto to this little jem from 2004 by Sweedish duo The Knife recently and I must say that it’s a perfect summertime treat. I can’t wait to get all lazy while listening to this on the beach this weekend.

And Hensforth we have a Shadow

I like this track which was remixed by Hensforth. It is a real interesting take on the DJ Shadow’s Midnight In A Perfect World. (1996) Take a listen for yourself, sounds like Hensforth really know how to take a jelly and make it a jam. Both versions are amazing!

A-Trak’s Running Man “Say Whoa” Single

Five time DMC champ/Kanye’s tour DJ/possibly my favorite hipster techno party starter A-Trak is the latest to step up to the plate for the Nike + Original Run mix series with Running Man.  Following in the footsteps of LCD Soundsystem, Crystal Method and Aesop Rock, A-Trak strings together a 40 minute plus mix guaranteed to keep your feet moving whether you’re hitting it hard on the treadmill or getting stupid on the dance floor.   Check out the single “Say Whoa” below and get your ass to iTunes to cop the whole thing.

California Soul

Here it is, a real summertime banger.  If you were at the last looks party you heard  “Summertime” by the Fresh Prince and will continue to all summer long, but if you looking for something a bit more sophisticated for the summer check out this gem … it’s gonna grab a hold on you for sure

Minitel Rose – “Magic Powder” video

This is definately one of the most fantastically cheesy videos I’ve seen in a while, but I’ll tell you what, Minitel Rose is serioius!   These “three french boys back from the future” crank up spaced out electro jams that just may be the next big thing.  Peep their myspace page and also visit Missingtoof’s Minitel Rose archives to cop a bunch of sick tracks.

I’m really digging these two from Missingtoof:
West Coast Valerie – Official Theme of Valerie (Minitel Rose Remix)
The Kinks – Sunny Afternoon (Minitel Rose Remix)

Universal Mind Control

I’m totally feeling Common’s new track with Pharrell, UMC (Universal Mind Control) from his upcoming album Invincible Summer.  Ya gotta love the Planet Rock type beat coupled with the Busy B-esque chorus.  Plus Common always comes correct.  Check out the song on the shitty youtube video below.
