Real McCoy – Pornstar

Hip Hop track infused with synth stab chords that remind me of Faithless.


Flying Lotus – Tea Leaf Dancers

Nice laid back jam from Flying Lotus.  Flying Lotus is known primarily as the artist who produces many of the bumpers on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. His great-aunt is the late Alice Coltrane.

Quio – Great

28 09 2007






Ok, think M.I.A but with more grime.  And remember to listen carefully, there’s a little ode to Depeche Mode in there. 

Halcali – Giri-Giri Surfrider

26 09 2007




Found this tune on MOG, Girl Duo from Japan, Haruka (Halca) and Yukari.  Sounds like a Fantastic Plastic Machine production, and loads of fun.

Here’s a hip hop/soul track from Kevin Michael who is out of Chester, PA.
I dig the gospel break towards the end of the track.  His album goes on Sale OCT 2.
