Alphabeat – The Spell (Video)

For the group Alphabeat from the UK, the mid-1990s never went out of style and Anthony Michael Hall from the 1980’s never grew up. Woah-a-woah-a-woah-oh-oh-oh. Rhythm is a dancer.

Mash-Up Monday #7: Irn Mnky – How Soon Is MVP? (Big L vs. The Smiths) (.mp3)

big_l_smiths_mash-up

I found this track while searching Google looking for a video or a photo of rapper Big L writing to see what hand he wrote with– as I pondered, “Big L? Maybe he’s left handed?” I didn’t find anything relevant to that, so I guess he recited off the dome… but I did stumble across this mash-up of Big L’s M.V.P. and The SmithsHow Soon Is Now? titled How Soon Is MVP? The track was mashed-up by Irn Mnky of the (from what I gather) British DJ/Production collective The White Eyed Tigers. Also check out Irn Mnky’s A Very British American Gangster mash-up tape of Jay-Z‘s American Gangster ‘pellas over various music from British artists old and new.

Dan Black – SYMPHONIES (video) & HYPNTZ (Notorious B.I.G. Cover) (.mp3)

Part Rihanna‘s “Umbrella” (edit: Garageband loop, Vintage Funk Kit 03 slowed down to 90bpm, also used in “Umbrella”), part Jack Nitzsche‘s sountrack from John Carpenter‘s amazing film, “Starman“, part Notiorious B.I.G., 100% awesome. The video above is for Dan Black‘s new single, SYMPHONIES from his upcoming album, ((un)). The song was originally released as a cover of Biggie’s “Hypnotize” (which was also mentioned in the eariler Herb Alpert post. Funny coincidence.) but for clearance reasons could not be used as a single on Dan’s album due out July 7th by (edit: found out it’s A&M/Polydor UK, yet another coincidence.) Polydor UK. He reworked it so it could be on the album and the video above is what resulted. I suggest listening to the original cover track first before watching the video. BLKN 4 LYF.
