A sad, but happy affair. For more than a year, Mike Who has been putting in work behind the decks on Stolen Records. Bringing such amazing DJ skills, and a fantastic taste and knowledge of hip hop, Caribbean and Latin music. This was his last show before he moves to the north of Chile. Make sure you are at our going away party for him BADONKADONK at GOODGOD on Saturday.
Also we were joined by experimental indie rapper, Busdriver. What is it about The Good Life/Project Blowed rappers? He did one of the best freestyles we had on the show since we had Aceyalone on our show years ago. That scene of rappers originally based around open mic nights at The Good Life cafe has created some amazing emcees with a free flowing style of freestyle. Listen to this for Busdriver spitting on ‘Niggas In Paris’ and ‘Shutterbug’.

They were like a gate way drug. Spank Rock made it okay for indie kids to like sexually explicit, misogynistic party music. At first it was only an ironic love, but maybe now it has have given way to a more genuine enjoyment for music that makes you dumber with each listen. So after a little while away making Italo Disco, Spank Rock finally have a new record, Everything Is Boring And Everyone Is A Fucking Liar, which should be out later this month. Here are the first tracks to make their way to the interwebs. We have Bike Song the sequel and another tune about ass and titties? Thoughts?
Basically a really long video for ‘Make Some Noise’, it’s the full length version of ‘Fight For Your Right Revisited’. Featuring an allstar, cast the Beastie Boys of the future challenge the Beastie Boys of the past to a “super fresh old school dance off”. Not quite Thriller, but probably better than Kanye’s efforts. Your thoughts?
Oh and here is ‘Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win’ with Santigold. It is like ‘Shove It’, but with the Beastie Boys instead of Spank Rock, and not really as good… but still pretty okay.
Fuck yeah! I want more music from Santigold and I want it to be as good as her old music. Please lord, is this too much to ask? Santi dropped this one today on Jay-Z’s Life and Times. It is co-produced by Q-Tip, Switch and Santigold with some vocals from Karen O. So what do you think? Does the future look promising?
