NOMO bandleader, Iron & Wine live member and fellow Midwesterner Elliot Bergman has a new project called Wild Belle.
Their first single “Keep You” is a sexy dubbed out psychedelic pop jam. Here it above and on their bandcamp.
M.I.A. boasts a miltant fashionista political agenda. It’s pretty cool but, after three records, the only things gathered from her guerrilla musical musings are an attachment to flashy neon clothing and marrying a rich dude. Historically, struggle has yielded a lot of creative and amazing art. A notable one being the Black American struggle which has lead to… well… The current state of the music. Watching a Sudanese woman rap “I want to sing for freedom/I want to sing for Love” in a thoub and dunks is incredible. We’ve come a long way. I guess some dope shit is surfacing out of the current state of affairs in Sudan.
Incredible new mix from Los Angeles dude Eamon Ore-Giron aka DJ Lengua.
“Rebajada is a Mexican DJ style. It, essentially, is slowing down the beat of a super fast gaita, guaracha and cumbia to create a much more tangible music to dance to. Some sonideros take it even a step further by tranquilizing the cocaine induced beats of Colombia and Peru. The end result, music on heroin.” (Super Sonido)
DJ Screw was the main music mixer for the Screwed Up Click and involved in the Houston hip hop scene; screw music, a type of rap music with heavy bass and “a languid, eerie quality” is named for him. Houston is really close to Mexico.
