Pot Shop – Macklemore Thrift Shop Parody

The fifth and final single from Seattle-based American rapper Macklemore debut studio album The Heist, ‘Thrift Shop‘ has received enormous success topping on the US billboard hot 100 at number 5, while still gathering much attention from the music blogosphere. Its catchy production by Ryan Lewis, thoughtful pun-fueled rhythms vocals and vivid music video gave it much viability in 2012. Just a few months after its release, we are now seeing one of the best parody videos we have come across. This well put together commentary about the legalization of marijuana is as insightful as it is entertaining, including a small cameo of Macklemore himself at the very end.

Below is the actual parody song by Steve Berke, available as a free download.

Aylen 2013 Bootleg Pack : A MUST DOWNLOAD PACK TO BEGIN 2013 [TMN PREMIERE]


With so many obvious reasons to love New Jersey producer Andrew Lin, better known as Aylen, there was no doubt in our minds that whatever he did next, we would fully support it. Yet, in all honesty, I was not expecting such a massive release. PREPARE FOR WHAT WILL BE THE MOST EXCITING BOOTLEG PACK OF 2013, as Aylen is about to unleash a collection of 13 delicately produced bangers completely unique in both execution and style.

The Music Ninja has been known for frowning upon mashups just because at the end of the day, too many producers seem to simply layer two tracks together and call it a mix. Aylen has redefined and set the new standard for what a mashups should be like in the modernized area of electronic dance music. The very first track, “Toxic Streisand” captures the nostalgia of previous years with the ubiquitous 2010 single from Duck Sauce ‘Barbra streisand’ and the focus and determination of ‘Toxic Rush’ (Jewelz feat. Scott Sparks) bassline. It sets the mood for the next 12 songs and leaves you prepared to expect the unexpected. From utter bass destruction with a mashup combining Dada Life and Gigi Borocoo, to melodically rich tracks influenced by Martin Solveig, Madeon and Hard Rock Sofa. It has it all.

‘Cannonball’ also takes an enormous amount of spotlight as Aylen edits in Anchorman (the Movie) quotes throughout Carnage & Victor Niglio’s big room trap remix. Being surprised at what is coming out of our speakers is the best gift we could receive welcoming a new year.

There is just so much for everyone that already being 9 days into 2013, we know this compilation will lively be apart of dance floors all across the world for months to come.

[Indie Rock] Water Liars – Fake Heat

Talk about a throbbing wound. The ache in “Fake Heat,” by Mississippi duo Water Liars, is as painfully palpable as they come. Both band members Andrew Bryant and Justin Kinkel-Schuster are exceptionally emotional throughout the slow-moving folksy/indie rock track, calling, telling, cautioning of an impending doom. When it isn’t crunchy and soaring, the music — which sometimes calls to mind Band of Horses balladry — seems to sigh heavily and sadly. This back and forth between explosive feeling and somber resignation, alongside the moving harmonies (especially towards the second half of the song), really makes this lead single standout as a heartbreaker.

“Fake Heat” is off Water Liars’ new album, Wyoming, out March 5th via Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum Records.

[Hip-Hop] Trinidad Jame$ – All Gold Everything (Remix) (Feat. T.I., Young Jeezy & 2 Chainz)

Newcomer Trinidad Jame$ recruits fellow ATLiens, T.I., Young Jeezy and 2 Chainz to hop on the star-studded remix of his hit track, “All Gold Everything.” The track was premiered by DJ Holliday on Atanta’s Streetz 94.5, hence why we have to settle for the clean version for now. Even with the censors though, it’s easy to get addicted to this slowed down, Southern-cooked anthem. You know this one’ s definitely LeBron James approved.
