Friday Free for All: Kendrick Lamar & Kenny Loggins remixes + Derevolutions

Posted March 27, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 376 views]

Kendrick Lamar Remixes
No matter what else happens in 2015, Kendrick Lamar‘s latest album, “To Pimp A Butterfly“, has cemented its place on my end-of-year top 10 list.
It’s an record so weighty and complex in its ambition and execution that it makes most other albums released this year look D-League in comparison.

On another level, it’s also just a really fun album to …

Friday Free For All: Tame Impala and Nuve

Posted March 13, 2015 by | 2 Comments | 2,537 views]

Tame Impala – “Let It Happen”
It seems hard to believe, but it’s been nearly three years since Tame Impala’s last studio album — “Lonerism” — came out.
Not that Kevin Parker has been sitting idly by in that time; between touring (and releasing the excellent Live Versions album last year (“Be Above It”  from that album is EPIC!), producing and collaborating on releases by Melody’s …

Dolly Parton – “Jolene” (Todd Terje Remix)
Can Todd Terje do any wrong?
That’s rhetorical question because we all know the answer is NO!!!
The big Norwegian has been quiet on the edit front in the last couple of years, but came back recently with a new edit of Dolly Parton’s classic, “Jolene”.

Todd Terje gives the country diva a balearic disco rubdown on the edit. Nothing too …

Friday Free For All: Aphex Twin/Tom Waits Mashup + Disclosure Remix

Eskmo – “Aphex Waits”
On the surface, Tom Waits and Aphex Twin would seem to very little in common.
While Waits is a gravelly voiced singer-songwriter whose style might best be described as leftfield interpretations of pre-war jazz and blues, Aphex Twin trades in futuristic experiments in electronics.
LA-based producer, Eskmo, manages to meld the seemingly disparate worlds together in a mash-up that defies expectations and manages …

Museum of Love — the duo consisting of Pat Mahoney (drummer for LCD Soundsystem) and Dennis McNany (a.k.a. Jee Day) — made one of my favorite albums of 2014.
So, needless to say, I was very excited when they sent me a DJ mix they made to play on my show last night.
It’s an engrossing mix highlighting their love of house music, featuring modern classics …
