"This is the second installment in a trilogy slated for completion in January. While In opened with a fog lifting to reveal a romantic vista, On bursts out of the gate like a bolting horse pulling a cart with a broken back wheel. “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” is a promise to the listener Mehr intends to work hard to keep. Only two minutes long and bold and abrasive as it is, it´s immediately apparent that there is much more going on than first meets the ear, that the arrangement is full of delicate particulars behind [...]
Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire follows up his Adult Swim performance with this new record featuring Speak and Golide Glo. "Igloo" is a slow record on which MNF tells us his heart is cold, and gets a little deep. Speak is on board for a little more light-heartedness and together they balance this track out. Check it below.
" Markus Mehr is certainly leading with his chin by announcing a full-blown trilogy with only one full-length release under his belt. In is the first part, to be followed by On and Off within the year. The German experimental ambient artist marshals the same array of computer, synthesizers, guitars and distortion pedals used on his 2010 debut, Lava , and opens with a muffled grumble that might well be churning magma deep in the volcano. As 'Komo' slowly clarifies in the air, a ravishing string-ensemble [...]
Time for another episode of the Non-Fat Urban Soundtrack series , which is mixed and hosted by DJ Steve Martin . He is currently in LA, where he already brings a weekly mix to the ears of all the LA listeners through his radio show. The radio show is called “My Side of the City” which you can hear Saturdays on KPFK from Midnight til 2 AM in LA or you can check out the mix online. Thug life just isn't what it used to be, and believe me, that's not a bad thing. This mix starts with [...]

CASSETTE #038 - I IS FOR IGLOOSI, I, I! Me, me, and me! That is all these guys can talk about apparently. The good news is that these self-centered pricks are not actually self-centered or pricks, and we have assembled the 9th playlist of the 26 we plan to release of this alpha-cassettes series. Enjoy!PLAYLIST:1. "I'm Only Sleeping"/The Beatles2. "I Was A Kaleidoscope"/Death Cab For Cutie3. "I Am
It's been a pretty tiring few weeks in the world of Peenko (i.e. me), so I think it's somewhat appropriate that this weeks Scots Way-Hay post is a bit more chilled. Niall Masson, aka iglue, is a singer songwriter from the Isle of Lewis, who I first caught at this years goNorth showcase. Yes, I [...]

Excerpt: "shifting between gentle yet slightly unsettling ambiance and new wave-ish pop, sprinkled throughout with vocalist Wendy Allen's ethereal folk tales... a strange mixture of styles juxtaposed against each othe... the lyrics and the vocal style offer the most intrigue with this release... Against the seemingly relentless flow good, but similar, neo-folk releases, might it just be possible that this strangely literal mix of traditional and modern music offers an engaging take on what folk means these days?"

Something tells me the Nanooks in Alaska never dreamed of the possibilities of their snow castles when they were carving out igloos to escape the whipping winds and driving snows of the barren landscapes up north (did the Nanooks even build igloos? I have no idea!). Luckily for them and us, one unemployed Cleveland man dreamed the impossible by resurrecting a giant igloo complete with sports jersey, television, and candle light - you know for ambiance and sexing up those Cleveland ladies. Jimmy Grey really gives new definition to that old pickup line: "you [...]
That's right; its time to dance outside, at night, in January . Personally I'm gonna hit up Modeselektor (grab some of his tunes here ) and Housemeister tonight, and next week Adam Freeland (!) and Evil Nine are coming through. Its about time we got some good European DJs around here. Anyway here's what's on my playlists now: Sex Bomb (Adam Freeland Remix) - Spinnerette ; Kinda explicit but totally sweet. Drop The Tough [The Twelves B-LIVE Remix] - Groove [...]

Ok, this is NOT an exclusive, but I am willing to bet that The Plugg will be the first to report this. Ludacris's new Album Theater of the Mind came out this past week. Almost concurrently, we were tipped off on some interesting news about the video below. The guy in front of the camera is Ludacris's personal ProTools engineer and producer, Igloo . It appears the album is being reworked as a ROCK RECORD . Ludacris Rock Remix Teaser
Dat kan geen toeval meer zijn. Onlangs kwam ik door een Russische kennis in aanraking met het werk van Mujuice en na enig speurwerk bleek zijn naam al eens gevallen te zijn in de comments in een post over het beroemde netlabel Thinner/Autoplate . Nu hij wederom in de spotlights staat als de vertegenwoordiger van de stad Moskou in de Nike documentaire " The AM90 Sound " is driemaal dus scheepsrecht en is het tijd om deze artiest eens uit te lichten. Mujuice is het alter ego van de 25-jarige Rus Roma Litvinov en [...]
