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.
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?
I was going to create a huge post on SXSW with resources. Being th lazy person I am, I decided to just post this video from one of my favorite internet show called Epic Fu. The first part gives a summary with links to free music.
Also Express Milwaukee is covering the event with a list of some of the Milwaukee Bands performing in Austin.
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.

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’s “How 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.
We just started playing this song from this DC singer/songwriter by the name of Thao Nguyen. I mention it in an earlier post. Well I saw the official video for the song over at Fader Magazine’s website. I love the claymation. What do you all think of the song and video?
