The Science of Skank

This track reminds me of being in a Zelda dugeon, but with way more layers than my game boy could ever produce. Its a pretty slow track, not really a club hit, more something to chill out and listen to on repeat for hours. Check out Stagga at

Purple Lips

Purple Lips are a new act, and I had a lot of trouble finding info on them. Im pretty sure they are an act based in Italy with an affiliation with Alex D'Elia. Either way, the single they sent me, based on a Tetris (yea, Tetris) sample, is ill. Check it out

Loads of New Stuff

Got some hot tracks in the inbox over the last few days, hopefully ill have them all up tonight (if i dont just go see Star Trek again). Anyway, the first of the bunch is a remix of Passion Pit's "The Reeling" by Burns.

He doesn't take too huge of a swing at it, but tweeks enough of it that it feels distinctly different. in a good way. he adds a couple extra layers in parts that are really really relaxing.

I really do not have the words to describe the email and mixtape that landed in my box a couple days ago. Check the message:


How have you been?

This time, Hoshina takes us to the galaxy.

He remixed 10 songs. They are concept albums that make galaxy a theme.

First of all, we recommend the thing to which it sequentially listens from No.1 to No.10.

Ten Remixes is one story like stars that exists in one Galaxy.

The same star is not in Galaxy as one. In the same way as, Remixes have the feature respectively.

The story receives the end by the last "Message In A Bottle".

The percussion sound in which time is ticked away rather forgets time.

It’s instant travel not to feel 40 minutes.

Became another year until 2010.

However, we cannot trip to space freely still.

Please experience a little early Galaxy travel in "Galaxy" Remixes / Hoshina Anniversary.

Have a nice Galaxy trip!

Thanks from the Far East,


and Check the remixes here.

Also, if you think its a little 'out there' listen to it from track one all the way through, it grows on you really fast. If ya want more, check the myspace here.

New M.anifest Cut ft Muja Messiah

Two sweet Minneapolis rappers that Ive featured before, M.anifest and Muja Messiah, team up on this new track from M.anifests upcoming 'Coming To America' release. Its called Rebel, produced by Budo, and is definitely sweet. Its a little slower then the other cuts from these two Ive heard before, but they pull off the slower beat really well too. Sweet flow.

Long Time No See

So finals kicked my ass, but thats all done now. I am home free for the summer months, well until i start working. I havnt checked my email in a couple weeks, so im sorry for all the backlog, ill get through it asap.

To start off the inbox cleanout, heres a sweet new track from May 68, called "My Ways". Its pretty electropoppy, just the way i like it. They are an indie-electo pop group from Manchester, UK, and definitely worth keeping an eye on. I would also reccomend grabbing "The Duke Is Dead", which as been a staple on my radio show for the past month and a half or so.
