She Loves Everybody

A customer of mine told me to check out this video by Chester French. I enjoyed the song and the video is pretty funny so here it is:


Again, if you want the song, just message me for it. Ill post it up if enough people start to ask.

Here's a pretty good outtake of the girl accidentally punching him for real. Reactions are priceless.

Ronson and Co.

So I'm pretty excited right now due to the fact that I'll be heading up to Squamish for the BC Day weekend to do some camping. Because of that, I'm keeping the stuff in this post pretty limited. Here's a video for you from one of my favourite artists. This is one of those songs that wont pick up on you the first time, but something about it is just so catchy.



Mark Ronson. Heard of him? If not, the name might sound familiar. Im sure everyone has heard of Samantha Ronson; this is her brother. Coming from a family of musicians, Ronson (both of them) specializes in remixing old tunes and giving them a jazzy touch. Definitely look this guy up. He's written two albums, and while the most recent one has more popular artists featured, his first album is unbelievable. Ill be posting up some of the song links once I'm back. Peace.

Sunday Girl






Now I'm not normally fond of music like this, but something about her songs is very appealing. A blogger at heart, Jade Williams specializes in art, music, film, and fashion. Now add DJ on top of everything else. She released her first single, Four Floors in March and her second single, a cover of Self Control by Laura Branigan, just came out recently. Open to letting other DJs remix her music, Diplo has done a cover of her first single which sounds amazing.

You can check out her blog here which I find pretty interesting to read through. She's got a great taste in music and art. Mind you, she is only 22 years old so this is very impressive.

Melania


Melania (Ft. P!) - Zweiseitig

Finding music is always a strange thing. For me, it started with spam email that I decided to check out. That junk mail led me to Melania, a German born artist who fuses soul with gospel and jazz.

The one thing I love about this song is the contrast between her unique sound and the occasional rapping. On one end, you hear what the guy is singing and on the other, you wonder what the song is actually about. I could listen to this song a thousand times and not get bored of it.

He Say She Say


Crash Test Dummy

Modesty Is Key

It's no coincidence that they're named after Lupe's song of the same name. Meeting each other back in Chicago in 2004, they formed a duo three years later. Signed under Lupe Fiasco's 1st and 15th record label, they quickly became a big hit, performing as openers for his concerts. Unfortunately these are their only songs that went public.

Records On My Wall

video
Skream - Listenin' to the Records On My Wall
From the album, Outside the Box (Releasing Aug 2010)

Welcome to my blog, everyone. My first post.

The first song I will be posting is not so much about music, but about art. This is possibly the finest rendition of the birth of Adam and Eve I have ever seen. If you can look past all the nudity, this is a video worth admiring.

This is one of his few songs that he created himself, but definitely go and check out his remixes:

La Roux - In For The Kill (Skream remix)
