Never mind the host’s pitiful description of the significance of “Summer Breeze”, Frank Dukes still ripped the Seals & Crofts sample while Marco Polo reworked Al B. Sure’s “Night and Day”, MoSS finagled The Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive”, and Rich Kidd gave new life to Melanie Fiona’s “It Kills Me.”

Flying Lotus's Homecoming Cosmogramma 2 night release party, the first night was for the beat heads and the second night (shown here) was and orchestral jazz interpetation show.
i'm in the precess of reviewing a bulk of new music, but i find myself coming back to this one. I've always been a fan of Dela, he's consistent with the Solid Drums and comfortable piano chops, this beat tape is a nice break from all the synth stuff.

For everyone who thinks Flying Lotus’ music is just too abstract for them, Cosmogramma has a few tracks that are easily digestible! Table Tennis, Galaxy in Janaki and Do the Astral Plane are some that will have naysayers ready to buy the album. When I was listening to the album, and Do the Astral Plane came on I immediately bean plotting how I was gonna add this song to my DJ set. It has a groove that feels like house music but is still “bound to wreck your body and turn the party out”
This lp was a surprisingly chill , lots of hypnotic soundscapes. There were moments of chaos, but thats al they were. Thumbs up Flylo!

24 year-old Londoner, BUG, is a keyboard player, songwriter and producer. Under the moniker, BUG, he creates an experimental, instrumentally grounded style of music with a compositional approach. The BUG sound encompasses the finer elements of hip-hop and neo-soul, yet the real beauty is in the delivery. Think the smooth richness of the Dam-Funk vibe, the solid construction of a Dilla beat, the electronic wizardry of Flying Lotus and the soulful melodies of Lonnie Liston Smith’s jazz.
I appreciate this record's straight-forwardness, solid downbeats without all
the showy beeps and clicks that are so popular right now. BUG is one to watch in the near future, enjoy.

Big Shout to District Fam Nachural for this one Georgia Anne Muldrow Remix: Untitled/Fantastic by Suite for MaDukes(an orchestra that plays Dilla covers...
yeah that IS Dope).
"Untitled/Fantastic is the emotional hub of Suite for Ma Dukes. When Mochilla/VTech screened the film in Detroit last week somebody shouted out ,“Now that’s what I’m talking about…”
HouseShoes has said several times, that he can’t watch Untitled/Fantastic without tearing up. If Suite for Ma Dukes has unlocked the emotional power of Dilla’s music, Untitled/Fantastic is the key. Here it is, our last offering from the three dvd set. To see the rest, you’ll have to purchase them.
The official street date is June 6th, but most retailers should have them before that. If not please spend it with us at MOCHILLA.
Please enjoy… and share.
Rest in Peace Dilla.

Miss TOKiMONSTA is one funny bunny if you ask me! Just found this on her website and clearly somebody got Cosmicly Intoxicated last night. Check out what she says about “Almost Free”.
So every blue moon, I get kinda of drunk and feel like making some music.
Here’s the story:
I get home after an awesome night at Low End Theory, then I see my rhodes still hanging in the living room because the 300 lb beast requires more than what is within my own abilities to carry up a flight of stairs to my studio. I felt the urge to make an all rhodes song, so I pseudo jammed on the rhodes and recorded directly into the mobile audio interface I use for my live performances. I didn’t even grab a proper mic to record the percussion–I recorded directly from the shitteous mic on my mac. In which, the percussion consists of me banging and tapping the top of the rhodes body, my car keys, and my snaps. The overall process was just me recording and looping bits into Ableton, then recording more layers, etc. So in total: 1 rhodes (for music and percussion), a pair of car keys, 1 mobile audio interface, 1 mac, 1 drunk girl. So yea, just layers and no edits, but minor EQing to cancel out the hiss from the unbalanced cables I was using. See? Doesn’t take much to make a song.
Listening to the song today, it makes sense that I made this song inebriated because I don’t think I’d make the same key choices if I was sober. Regardless, it has a nice chill vibe so I thought I’d share it with whoever is interested
For the life of me, I can’t remember why I named this song “Almost Free.”

First of all thank you for listening, This Project was alot of work and so much
fun! when i started this, Originally I started this, I wanted to make this lp with
Only the MPC, in the end, it was about %80 MP and the rest editing. I've
Had my MPC 2000 about a year (year and a half if you count the pawn shop).
its an outdated process, very enjoyable, i now can fully appreciate PC beatmaking.
I want this to sound like a late 90's beat tape, tape hiss and all Raw, u know?
i missed out on that period so i thought I'd relive it briefly. I knew cats that worked
like this but i was only Djing back then.
Why Pop Tarts? cus i looove them! Following the themes of Donuts(Dilla),
Fresh Brownies( Kev Brown)Nowalatas(14KT),etc.
I hope you enjoy it.
There will be more from this project(remixes,B-Sides,and vocal versions)
so stay tuned

Digging in the crates - The digging in record crates to find rare pieces of music that can be used for new productions, has long been a ritual of a scene within the music culture. Since the mid-20th Century it is called sampling, when digitized sound samples of existing musical works are edited, rearranged and used in modern music productions.
An interactive installation offers possibilities to explore sampling as a production technology of contemporary music. While modified turntables are used to navigate dynamic data visualizations, information graphics as well as auditory contributions are helping to understand complex contents and relations. Besides the history of sampling or technical backgrounds of the digitization of analog audio signals, visitors can also obtain information on the dissociation of sample-based productions and other musicological phenomena such as remixes, mashups or covers. As a highlight of the exhibition the visitor can slip into the role of a producer and goes on a fascinating search for suitable samples, which will be found on soul, funk and jazz records of the 70s and 80s.
Depending on user interests, Digging in the Crates offers different approaches to the topic. The visitor acts in a totally free interaction-space, which allows him to consider sampling from completely different perspectives. The straight interaction with information is just as important as the possibility to deal with "sampling" in a passive way. This means the user can slip into an active role in which he has full control over the visualized information as well as taking a rather passive attitude to get inspired by the interactions of others.
Digging in the Crates aims to describe the sampling culture in all its aspects, characteristics, and influences. Not only the understanding of the creative process as a craft but also the effort and creative processes associated with sampling should be communicated authentically.

Rare footage of Dilla Djing in toronto and a great interview about the love he recieves
abroad and the theory behind F*** the Police.
"It’s weird cuz like in Detroit, ya know I’m just a regular Joe. Ya know what I’m sayin’. but you go to New York, or you go to Cali, or go to London. Even coming to Toronto now, you know what I’m saying now, it’s a whole different thing. I get the love for what I do in that basement, it’s like appreciated. So I go back and do more sh**."
