so, lots of things have happened since my last serious post. the montréal jazz fest. tons of shows in between. lots more coming up! i’ve got die antwoord (YESSSSSSSSSS!) tomors, meg montréal and osheaga are coming up, and i am once again heading off to new york for a week and along the way i will  be checking out flaming lips in central park! annnnnd the hard tour in nyc which features m.i.a. and a bunch of crazy fun other artists! i will mos defs be covering meg montréal but i dunno about the rest.

oh fiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally! this mixtape has been soooo long due. like for real. the original playlist for this was made probably two months ago but obviously since then i’ve been hearing a lot of new artists so the playlist is now what it is. i had to put this out before it got too crazy. there are 40 tracks so unfortunately, like last time, i had to convert all the songs to a lower bit rate just to save space and upload it to mediafire…the mp3′s that i offer are of their original quality (very good) but within the mixtape it is all converted.

this mixtape is amazing. not gonna lie. unforts i couldn’t fit ALL the new stuff like lcd soundsystem, ratatat, etc etc but managed to put some amazing tracks from new albums released by m.i.a., crystal castles…and more. there is everything in here from minimal, techno, hip-hop, rap, house, haaaaaaaaaaauss, d’n’b, experimental to psychedelic, soft-pop, israeli goodness, and xyz genre jajaja.

it’s come to my realisation that for those of you who use itunes, the playlist doesn’t quite work and you’d have to renumber them manually just so the tracks play in their proper order…maybe some of you do this, maybe some of you don’t (because you use players like mediamonkey (woohoo!) or songbird (woohoo!))…but i DO encourage you guys to listen to my mixtapes IN ORDER. most of my time spent making them is well, doing the write up, but most importantly, is picking and choosing what goes in the mixtape and how to fit it in…if it isn’t played in order, well i could just pick a bunch of songs i like and zip it up and let it be that. but that’s no fun and so impersonal. i put a lot of love and effort into these mixtapes so i hope that you guys get to hear it the way it’s supposed to be heard! soooo…enough rambling, let’s dance! playlist after the jump!

p.s. happy belated to a special mr. taha!

I. Am. Back! My place is finally finished in terms of painting. One of my walls is electric orange aka awesome orange aka the happiest color ever. And it makes me smile and I zone out sometimes in bliss just staring at my perfect wall…aaah…oh…right. The news!

So Osheaga is upon us…yet another festival here in MTL which boasts headliners such as Coldplay, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Roots from the 30th until the 2nd of August. Beastie Boys was one of the headliners but you folks don’t need me to tell you the bad news ’cause I’m guessing you’ve already heard it…or seen it. Some bands that I would like to see the most are the Rural Alberta Advantage (review to come soon), The Roots (of course), and MTL’s own, Misteur Valaire (a band I attempted to see a few weeks ago but got the address wrong! Damnit!). But, Osheaga tickets are ludicrously expensive compared to other festivals and the whole quantity versus quality ratio. I am going to be a concert chicken, as I normally am, to see if I can score tickets…but I don’t really know if it’s worth it seeing as there are waaaaay too many conflicts because I am doing a full coverage of MEG MONTREAL!!!

It is pretty much the cooler, hipper, and more danceable part of Osheaga…kind of like a mini Sahara Tent if you will…and yes, I will be going to all the shows. Have I rested up from my Flying Lotus and my MJF crazinesss…a bit. But MEG is gonna be awesome. Watch the trailer below and go after the jump to see the lineup and schedule!
