[NEW] Ratatat – Nightclub Amnesia


Ratatat‘s forthcoming, highly-anticipated album, Magnifique, has been more than living up to its hype thus far. The first two jams shared, “Cream on Chrome” and “Abrasive,” see the legendary Brooklyn duo building out steady, and undeniably infectious, grooves with their signature guitar. “Nightclub Amnesia,” which dropped just this morning, continues in that tradition but proves the most dynamic, hard-hitting single from the project yet. Starting with glitchy synths and fuzzy guitar the song only grows from there developing into a disorienting, yet dance-floor ready, composition. As its name suggests, the “Nightclub Amnesia” evokes feelings of intoxication and euphoria once again displaying Ratatat’s one-of-a-kind sound. Magnifique drops in 10 days, on July 17th, and can be pre-ordered here.

[NEW] Ratatat – Cream On Chrome


It’s hard to believe it’s been five whole years since we last heard any new material from Ratatat, but the wait is finally over. Returning with a brand new single ahead of their highly anticipated Coachella set later tonight, the Brooklyn duo pick up right where they left off with “Cream On Chrome”. The cut is presumably set to appear on their upcoming project due out on XL Recordings later this year, widely speculated to be titled LP5.  Check out the slick new track below, and make sure to catch a live stream of the band’s performance when they hit the stage in a few hours.

[Hip/Hop] November 2009 Random Playlist Part. I


We call this playlist random because it has a little of everything. Hip/hop with pretty heavy electronic beats, Hip/hop with pop/funk and just simply fresh new tracks from Wale and Speech Debelle that we cant stop listening to.

Corynne Elliot, AKA Speech Debelle is a British rapper that has recently released the very sweet track Spinnin’. It is a positive and hopeful song full of soft melodies that go along well with her fast rapping flow.

From his debut album Attention Deficit that will be released November 10, 2009, Wale gets real about the life of celebrities in 90210. Everyday more and more hip/hop artist like Wale and Kid Cudi are embracing electronic elements into their songs creating a whole new hip/hop experience. We can’t wait to listen to Attention Deficit in its entirety but judging from the little that we have listen to, I think November will be Wale’s month.

Just a feel good awesome mash up from the guys over at The White Panda remixing Wyclef Jean and Alphabeat. They have been releasing a lot of great mash-ups lately (including Badd by Ying Yang Twins) and you can expect to see more of their mixes populating the interwebs.

We might get tired of our own answer to this questions but so far it has not changed. How to make an electronic beat sound amazing? Simply sprinkling a little of Jay Z to it. (or at times Lil Wayne and Kid Cudi)
