My sister just sent me this video of Mos Def performing Quiet Dog on Letterman. Amazing performance (fingers crossed for the album)!
Watch the video below!
This is ridiculous. Team Teamwork just dropped 10 remixes using music from Zelda! The image below has nothing to do with the project but the album artwork was so wack I decided to post this instead. The remix of Aesop Rock’s No Jumper Cables using the music from Goron Village is perfect.
Download The Ocarina of Rhyme, here.
This is where you scream ‘why didn’t I think of this???’ and jump off a bridge! Israeli musician Kutiman has crafted an album entirely from Youtube clips, and it is nothing short of brilliant. Dj Shadow, Mike Realm and Pb Wolf look out. Thanks to Dutch for the heads up!

AWESOME. A 40-piece orchestra interpreting the music of the late great Jay-Dee. Arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Lots of cameos throughout – here’s Pos and Talib doin Stakes is High and then the show closing with Illa J (Dilla’s little brother) singing over Fall in Love (footage courtesy of DERT).
There was a film crew there and it looks like it will be released as a DVD! It will be a must-have (at least for me). Thanks to YesYesYall for the heads up!
Apparently I missed the Grammys the other night, I never seem to know when these big award shows are on. My only regret is missing this performance by Radiohead (just Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood) with the USC Trojan marching band.
I would love to hear the whole album performed like this. Amazing.
Here’s the opener:
Dert’s Talk Strange has just been made available for free download and it is AMAZING. 17 tracks made from Bjork samples and remixes.
Now I know what you’re thinking – believe me I haaaate 99.9% of the mash-up/remix albums I am sent (and I’m sent A LOT) but anyone who heard Dert’s previous release re-working of Jose González knows this is worth a listen – especially when the cost is free.99!
