So I’ve been in Korea and Japan for the last two weeks, and for the two before that I was frantically equipping myself with travel clotheslines, packets of detergent and business attire. Please forgive my absence.

Raise your hand if you like R&B.

This new John Legend song featuring Andre 3000 is on heavy rotation for the moment, I bet many of you have heard it but please taste it now if you haven’t:

John Legend, 3 Stacks- Green Light

At the newspaper, I always hated when the copy editors got away with trite sayings as headlines. Now, I am following in their footsteps but tonight I really am dreaming of a San Diego dance floor… at Transport, to be precise. That is the name of the hallowed home of indiephile DJs Saul Q and Gabe Vega, who have compiled an excellent mixtape to keep you pushin’ all summer long. And if the title is indicative of anything, we can expect volumes more.

Feel the Noise- Vol. 1

Feel The Noise – Vol 1:
Black Kids – Dance With You (the twelves remix)
Bitchee Bitchee ya ya ya – Fuck Friend (yuksek brodinski remix)
Buddy Akai – Cut me up (villains remix)
Matt & Kim – No More Long Years (radioclit remix)
Hot Chip – Ready For The Floor (LA riots and villains remix)
Daft Punk – Technologic (remix by ?)
Missy Elliot vs Mason & Princess – I’m Really Perfect
MSTRKRFT – Bounce (feat.N.O.R.E)
Fake Shark Real Zombie – Designer Drugs (designer drugs remix)
Kid Cudi – Day ‘N’ Nite (crookers remix)
Klaxons – Golden Skans (switch mix)
The Ting Tings – Great Dj (calvin harris remix)

“I’m blogging horizontal this morning… I’ve got a wicked hangover and my clothes from last night still smell of fog machine juice…”

I wrote those opening lines about 12 hours ago when I first intended to post. What can I say, summer days just happen.

But here I am now, headphones firmly in place, ready to drop some ting tings.

Need I really say more? Run, don’t walk!!

NERD- Seeing Sounds

If you’re up on the internet when you should be out partying, like me, it’s Happy Hour on Rapidshare which means no security codes to decipher.

Back in the go mode: Wale’s mixtape rules!! June 3, 2008

Let me be frank-

If you are not listening to Wale’s “Mixtape About Nothing,” you’re f***ing asleep! Seinfeld was the most amazing comedy of MY lifetime and this mixtape is literally my summer anthem for the moment. Little Brother, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, and now… Wale?! This year has been a hailstorm.

Part 1: Wale “The Mixtape About Nothing”
Part 2: Wale “The Mixtape About Nothing” Pt. II

“Good rappers ain’t eatin’, they Olsen twinnin’.” – Wale

Forgive me for the lateness, but I had to post this because I gave Reggie endless shit over his support for “4 Minutes” (he even put it on the mixtape!!) but here Madge has actually made a bona fide hit that I would not be shamed to be seen dancing to in the club! Pharrell, you’ve done a good thing.

Forgive that rude subject line but I really am excited to be back. Since I’ve moved into my new shack I have not had internet access. All is resolved now and I am back, happy to bring you whatever sniffings of culture I uncover along my digital journeys.

Y’all know I had to do right by you on this Thursday afternoon, so here is a hot remix by Tepr for you to rock over the weekend. All thanks to DISCODUST for this fab discovery.

Kid Sister – Pro Nails (Tepr Remix)

Looks super fly…

Kanye, Cool Kids, CSS, Lupe, Broken Social Scene, The Black Keys, Mark Ronson, Spankrock, Saul Williams, MGMT, Black Kids, I could go on… Lollapalooza is going to be so great this year. Chicago and Illinois are the two words of the year and I can’t wait to visit their city and see how it really goes down.

I think this will be the summer event to be at.

P.S. Why is Janelle Monae not performing?!

I also really wish I was going to the H.A.R.D. music fest in L.A.: N*E*R*D,MSTRKRFT, SPANK ROCK, KID SISTER, A-TRAK, STEVE AOKI, BLOODY BEETROOTS, JASON BENTLEY, KILL THE NOISE, MILES DYSON, DESTRUCTO, MR. WHITE”

Your brain is magic city, your nose is ATLANTA!

This Child Rebel Soldiers and Pusha T remix is so so so so so so off the chain! Run don’t walk:
