She Lights Up The Night

October 12th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

As much as I hate to post a video with out a related audio file, I couldn’t resist this one:

LIGHTS - Drive My Soul (official music video)

According to a poster I walked by on College Street this morning, she’s going to be at the Mod Club on Friday. It’s a six pm show, so I don’t know if I can be bothered.

Lights on MySpace

Dark Techno for a Rainy Day

October 8th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

A little while ago, I downloaded this track from the Curb Crawlers and listened to it over and over again. Its dark and disturbing and creepy, kind of like H.R. Giger artwork.

Kevin Saunderson - Just Want Another Chance (John Tjeda Remix)

Check out The Curb Crawlers blog and join their Facebook group. They throw some pretty good parties. Once I showed up at the end of one and picked up a chick.

Date With A Foxy Alcoholic

October 6th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

I’m not totally convinced that these are seperate songs, but they’ve got different titles and they come from different editions of The Blue Walrus‘ great Clap to the Electricity compilations.

Fox n’ Wolf - Youth Alcoholic

Fox n’ Wolf - Electric Date

According to their MySpace page, they’re also from Sweden. Is everyone from Sweden these days?

In other news, I’ve now got a Myspace page myself, and a Twitter account. Awesome.

Tactical Hip-Hop Action

Power GRaphixx MGS4 shirtIf you know me, you know that I fucking love the Metal Gear Solid series of games and that I think Hideo Kojima is a genius.

You also might know that I love wicked t-shirts, and this one created by the ultimate team-up of Uniqlo and the Tokyo’s Power-Graphixx Inc. design group is amazing.

Uniqlo has a few more MGS4 shirts here, but they seem to be pretty special edition and basically unavailable.

If anyone knows where I can hook up with one, I would be forever indebted to you.

And since we’re talking about Metal Gear Solid, I feel like I might as well post a track about Snake. Man, I definitely never thought I’d hear someone rap about the fact that you have to plug the controller into the other port to beat Psycho Mantis in MGS2.

If you’ve got time, also check out Ill Gill’s page. There’s some dope nerdcore going on there.

Some Deadly Drums.

October 1st, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

Dmoney says that Drums of Death is coming to Toronto this Friday and that you should “Go to the show so you can tell all your friends next year that you were into him before he blew the fuck up. ”

We looked up some of his shit, and it is fully sick.

Lesser Panda - Carousel (Drums of Death Remix)

Tricky - Council Estate (Drums of Death Remix)

See you at CiRCA on Friday.

Ping Pong Perfect

September 29th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

Frankly, I’d like to see Kelly play Michelle in a game of ping pong.

Daisy Daisy - Michelle Plays Ping Pong (Vicarious Bliss Remix)

AIR - Kelly Watch The Stars (MOOG Cookbook Remix)

Official AIR site here and some cool shit by the guys that that did the Michelle video can be found here.

Jook City

September 27th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

According to Wikipedia, Jook music is a “dance-driven genre” that is a mixture of “Bass, House and Hip-Hop.” It comes from Tampa Bay, a town alternately known as Jook City or Trigga City.

Count me in.

Tampa Tony - Can’t Juke Without Me (Tactic Re-edit)

R. Kelly - Hook It Up (UMYO Juke Remix)

One of the best parts about Tampa Tony’s Myspace profile is the number of people stopping by to show him some “luv” and express their support for him while he is in jail.

Straight Out Of Stockholm

September 24th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

Maybe it is because I’m 1/4 Swedish, but from Snus to Espen, I love all things Scandinavian. It’s like there is something in the water over there that just makes stuff perfect and clean and beautiful.

It’s like I knew Lykke Li was Swedish the first time I heard her. Mostly, I can’t get enough of her song Little Bit (in all its remixed glory) but her other stuff is also pretty sweet.

Toronto Life says she’ll be at the moddy on October 24 and that tickets are $15. All the cool kids are going.

Lykke Li - Little Bit (CSS Remix)

Lykke Li - Little Bit (Klumpfisk Remix)

Lykke Li - Little Bit (Loving Hand Remix)

Lykke Li - I’m Good, I’m Gone (Black Kids Remix)

Lykke Li - Dance Dance Dance (Chaise Marcel Remix)

Check out Lykke Li’s MySpace account or buy some of her songs on iTunes. Amazon even has her sweet little album “Youth Novels.” The Hype Machine has some more tracks from her.

If you still aren’t convinced, check out how gorgeous the video for Little Bit is and see if you don’t fall a little bit in love with her, too:

The Geek Shall Inherit The Hiphop Earth

Solid beats and rhymes from NASA and CERN respectively. Nerdcore represent, wha wha!
