SXSW in 4 gigabytes or less…

SXSW in 4 gigabytesIf you missed SXSW like me, you can have an opportunity to hear all the artists and bands from the comfort of your ipod. I briefly mentioned it in an earlier post. A kind gentleman by the name of Greg Hewgill compiled music from all the artists that were showcased at this year’s SXSW. It is a little over 3 gigabytes of music. You will need torrent client to download the file. If you need help to download the file, go here for guidance.

If you download it and listen to some of the music, let me know some of your favorite tracks. I will post some of my favorites after I finish downloading the file. While you are waiting for your download take at a look at some of the video coverage of the event. (Update) I just fond out someone took the time to review the over 768 songs that is included in the torrent. Check it out here.

Exploiting a Scandal to Sell Music…

dupree myspace

I just saw this video from Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine. He discusses the fact that Ashley Dupree (i.e. She ‘worked’ with Elliot Spitzer) might get a record deal. Put it this way, I think the music industry is so desperate to make a dollar they will do anything including exploiting a scandal. I love Jay Smooth’s take on it and how it relates to Hip hop and the music industry. How do you feel about it?

Also Express Milwaukee is covering the event with a list of some of the Milwaukee Bands performing in Austin.

…And ‘Justice’ for All

Justice

Well one of the biggest groups from 2007 is continuing their dominance. The french duo known as Justice is headlining the MySpace Tour along with Diplo, DJ Mehdi, Chromeo, Busy P(Daft Punk’s manager and founder of Justice’s label Ed Banger). The tour will be stopping through Chicago on March 20th at the Riviera. Check out their new video for the song “DVNO”

According to band member Xavier de Rosnay, “DVNO” stands for “Divino.” de Rosnay states, “In every suburb of the world, in every city, there’s always a nightclub called El Divino… Clubs where you have to wear like a white shirt to get in.”

The vocalist featured in the song is Mehdi Pinson from the band Scenario Rock.

The video for the song, directed by So-Me, Yorgo Tloupas and Machine Molle, features band members Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé playing piano at the end.

All you need is gold…Santogold that is

Santogold

My favorite artist right now is the multi talented Santi White aka Santogold. She has been all over the music blogosphere for some time now. I have been playing her music on Rhythm Lab Radio for over a year. She even was a writer and producer on Res’sHow I Do“. That album is amazing, and you need to get it (I mean it!). She opened up for Bjork at Madison Square Garden at Bjork’s request. Performs with Spank Rock. This will be a golden year for Santogold. Her album is due out this year. She mixes reggae, electronic, punk, rock, with dash of hip hop attitude. She is the future of music.

She just dropped the video for “Les Artistes” which we have been playing here at RadioMilwaukee. DO NOT SLEEP… I REPEAT DO NOT SLEEP.

Santogold – “Les Artistes (XXXChange Remix)”

Grab this cool Santogold Mini-Mix she did for BBC’s Annie Mac Show. She picked the songs and then it was mixed by Martelo(via FiftyOne:Fiftyone)
