I saw Vikesh Kapoor perform the other night, armed with a guitar and a harmonica (there were some Bob Dylan vibes for sure). I wanted to share one of his songs with you called “Bottom of the Ladder”.

The video below was made by Randy Sterling Hunter and Zia Anger, the same ones who did that video for Angel Olsen. Once again they’ve exposed and re-wound a single roll of 16mm film to create the visuals.

Yasiin Gaye (Mos Def and Marvin Gaye): The Departure (Side One)

yasiin-gaye

Producer Amerigo Gazaway has created a masterpiece here, turning the dream of a collab between Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Marvin Gaye into reality. To call this is a mash-up album simply does not do it any justice, this is a thing of beauty.

Stream the whole thing on SoundCloud or download it here.

*Amerigo Gazaway has been served with a takedown notice from RIAA, the link I posted still works for now but probably won’t for much longer – better hurry!

truly-madly-deeply-500

This is rare, I made a new mix and it’s not summer! Just a heads up, this one’s pretty much the exact opposite of the summer ones. It might be a bit noisy for your office (unless you work in a really cool office) but you can always download it for later! If you’re into R&Bass music, this one’s for you.
