Kanye West – Power

Spent all day letting the new Kanye song simmer and sit with me and I came to the verdict that it is blogworthy and quite good. It is Kanye doing what Kanye does and this time sampling King Crimson?! Sure! Why not?

Major Lazer & La Roux Present: LAZERPROOF

So apparently Major Lazer & La Roux banger collab broke the Mad Decent server. I guess everyone is desperate for some new summer party jams and this is exactly what this mixtape is, nothing more nothing less. Be sure to check out The Creators Project video piece on the genius and madness that is Diplo. He is just a dude that just gets it.

Connan Mockasin – It’s Choade My Dear

Connan Mockasin is Phantasy latest little muse/release, a freak-a-delic weirdo from New Zealand. I consider his album “Please Turn Me Into Snat” what the latest MGMT album should’ve been, instead of that mediocre watered down hippie jargon. And with acts like Connan and Tame Impala making quality psychedelic music I dunno why anyone would give the new MGMT a second listen. Connan Mockasin’s album is a fantastic way to spend to spend 36 minutes of your life so pick up the album here at Rough Trade.

Mystery Jets x Wooden Shjips

Mystery Jets first single off of their upcoming pop opus, Brace Yourself is “Dreaming of Another World”. A 70s dream pop tune with a chorus that you have to let wash over you. I love that calls Mystery Jets – “Posi-pop” because their music just makes me feel so good about the world.

“It’s time to live out the dreams in your head…”

Apparently Stoner Rock is cool again with acts like Tame Impala making some moves with their fuzzed out psycho-delic Aussie rock. Wooden Shjips steps in and trips out the Mystery Jets’ polished pop sound and takes the tune to another world.

BURNS – So Many Nights

BURNS somehow turns a wah-guitar lead line into a dancefloor banger. Loved this tune from the first time I heard it on DJ Mehdi’s Xmas Mix.

Midnight Juggernauts x KIM + US Tour Dates

I might as well turn my blog into “Asian Dan Loves Australian Music” Blog. With “The Crystal Axis” almost upon us, 5.28.2010 be exact – the Juggernaut trio has provided us with some great remixes. One by KIM of The Presets, a dark house jam that oozes with Oceania pride. A dark psycho-delic spiral into the dancefloor vortex, just give in and dance. Be on the lookout for the Holy Trinity of remixes of “Vital Signs” by each member of the band, Vin, Andy, and Daniel, a sort of alternate ending as told by each member.

Check out the music video for “Vital Signs” – here.
