My March spotify playlist is finally online, with new music from Andrew Ashong, Great Dane, Elaquent, Moodymann or Dag Savage and timeless gems from The Earth Disciples, D’Angelo, Nas or Madlib. If you like it, send it to a friend :-)
Maybe it’s because we all wanted to believe in it or maybe because people are so lost with the advancement of technology these days… Anyway, Funny or Die did a great hoax with this HUVr commercial, featuring Schoolboy Q, Moby and “Doc” Christopher Lloyd, claiming that the long awaited Hoverboard finally got a proper release. Big up on this one !
Recently, I picked up a treasure… I had no idea that what seemed to be just a really heavy coffee table book, would turn out to be a box collection to include 2 vinyls and so much history from 70’s Chicago.
Michael Abramson (1948-2011) was an acclaimed Chicago photographer who produced a large body of artistic and commercial work. He established his reputation during the mid- to late-seventies with his intimate portraits of nightlife on Chicago’s South Side. Many of these stunning B/W images were published, along with two LPs of the music playing at these clubs, in a multimedia package entitled Light on the South Side(2009), released by Chicago music recording company Numero Group.
Mount Kimbie is without any doubt my favorite rock band at the moment. Even if you think, and you may be right, that this is not rock music. Have a listen to this recent live session for Asos, it sounds like Mogwai drinking red wine with BOC and Pan American, with lots of additional groove.
Swiss beat master Chief has assembled a solid collection of 31 beats, demos and other goodies produced in 2013 to form “Echo Chamber - a collection of rough beats and random pieces”, available now as a free download here. Full support, as always : play it loud and share it !
