See, I go and say nice things about someone, then I dig up someone who’s totally next level and remember what ‘good’ sounds like. Tricky is consistently amazing, his videos (all that I’ve seen, anyway) are visually stimulating and the sounds he creates are melodic and rich and intelligent. I Just got his new album, Mixed Race and I’m looking forward to it.
Guess we all do now and then…
I don’t like to talk about this dude too often because everyone else does so much of it already, but when it’s good, it’s good. I have cautious, but optimistic hopes for his new R&B Mixtape It’s Never Enough.
Tomorrow evening in our fair city of Toronto, a Biomedical Engineer from Pittsburgh named Gregg Michael Gillis, (better known to the world as Master-Pirate DJ ‘Girl Talk’), will be performing at The Docks, which I refuse to ever call by it’s current name ‘Sound Academy’. Alongside Sir Talk will be the successful, home-grown group known as Keys & Krates. Their eclectic, mash-up style of music will surely lend a hand to one another and make for quite a rowdy party that’s been known to happen on their dance floors and overcrowded stages filled with frighteningly overzealous fans (yes, I am one of them!) Last time Girl Talk was in Toronto, KoolHaus was covered in toilet paper shot from guns…By young women dressed as stripper cops…In November. I’ll leave you with that thought…And a little sampling of the musical styles of Keys & Krates and Girl Talk. Enjoy!
Girl Talk – Play your Part (Part 1)
I’m in a positive mood right now.
That is a good thing…
It is a beautiful, yet-fleeting feeling during the cold, dark, lonely and seemingly endless winter. Whether it comes from simple, little thoughts or; passing sights that make you smile to yourself, to not have a troubled mind…For a brief moment, is never a bad thing.
Speaking of good feelings; this mixtape makes me feel like I’m at a snobby, New York, underground/secret Loft party filled with Drag Queens, hot skinny white bitches, people who live in Brooklyn, The Well-Dressed, and a few sweaty, naked gay men. My idea of a good time.
This mix hails from female ‘artist?’, Maggie Horn; who is from the fun, innovative group ‘Telephoned’. Who are partners in crime with ‘Fool’s Gold’. Who are-namebomb, namebomb,- You get where I’m going. Lots of collabo’s and fun surprises on this one.
Before OR after party appropriate. Enjoy.
