wow. it’s been a loooong time since i’ve posted but i have good reasons. since my last post, i have had one of the most amazing life changing life rewarding awesome epic all possible positive adjectives at burning man. a festival that everyone should experience at least once (and after that, as many times as humanly possible). since my last post, i have embarked on a journey starting in vancouver, canada all the way down the west coast until san fran camping, hiking, existing within nature…all the way to new york where i am temporarily pro chillin’ until i leave to continue my love for travel and engulfment of culture further south in the latin americas.

since my last post i have been blessed with amazing people that have come into my life and introduced me to many things…especially good music. so, this post…is just a tease. OOOOOoooooOOOa tease. oh yes. i have a bigger post coming up with photos aaaaaaaaaand i think, one of the best mixtapes to come out on atm, EVA. hope y’all had an awesome thanksgiving and enjoy these songs, pump up the volume, and keep it dirty for me until the mixtape is out!

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!

hi everyone, sorry for the lack in posts. have been very busy lately…just got back from toronto from the g20 after a week of protesting, marching, and being a flood of different emotions at once.

will hopefully have a mixtape for you all soon…i have one prepared already from last month but now with the montréal jazz festival starting…it may be even more postponed…but there will be jazz fest coverage!

meanwhile…DON’T believe mainstream media and how they have horribly misrepresented the people, the protest, and our ideologies as well as how they’ve glamorized the police.

go outside of the system. a good place to start for all g20 related news is the 2010 media co-op as well as justin and lex.

So, I decided to start a new page called “Watch” which is just at the top along with the “Home”, “Speak”, and “About” links. I’ll try to post new movies every month or so that I really liked. The first for this month will be the documentary “Earthlings”, which made me super depressed by the end of it and has reified what was in the back of my conscience in the first place. It’s super informative and I think everyone should see this before they make the choices they do, good or bad. Anyways, I hope you will like it as much as I did!

Enjoy!

Another mixtape will be on the way soon 😉 and will include a lot of tracks from more great new albums this year as well as tracks from artists that are touring and will be doing lots of festivals! March is so ridiculous for shows and already this month I have more than 7 shows to see.

NEON AND HIGH FOOD MONTRÉAL have a THREE DAY festival coming up featuring: FLYING LOTUS!!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH *DIES* FLYING LOTUS! BENGA! FAKE BLOOD! JOAKIM! DUCHESS SAYS! AND MORE! Outside of the festival they’re hosting Aeroplane! Neon Indian! Silly Kissers! and more!

So sick.

Calvin Harris, Air, Joanna Newsom, the Clientele and many others are also making they’re way to Montréal this month! CALVIN HARRIS! I missed him at Coachella and I still regret it.

Anyways, I recently listened to Hot Chip’s new album One Life Stand and have determined that they will never live up to Coming On Strong or even The Warning, which for me (and for Taha ;)), is one of those classic dance albums. There are a few good singles on there like “One Life Stand” and “Keep Quiet”, but other than that it is a very very mainstream sound compared to their former works and not very much stands out. So this led me to go on a The Warning binge so to speak, and I haven’t been able to let go of listening to this album for a few days now.

I decided to share one of my favorite songs of all time “Boy From School” and a cover of it done by Grizzly Bear. I don’t think they did it justice…but “Boy From School” is one of those tracks that are absolutely untouchable, so perfect already. But the Grizzly Bear cover is a completey different side of it, and they did somewhat keep the harmonies that I love so much…so it’s not too bad 😉

Hot Chip are playing Coachella this year! They kicked my ass when I saw them in the Sahara in 2008.

Enjoy! and check out those shows!

I am back from NYC. Two long weeks of dancing, music, sight seeing, and the FOOD. Yum. Good food. Updates to come on my KYLIE concert, CMJ, and more. I definitely had this song in my head the entire time…and it’s so fitting for New York. It’s just too bad I don’t have that much money to blow. But the song is sexy and makes me feel like I do! BRAP BRAP!

MP3: Drake – Money To Blow
