Fake Blood x Glenjamn

Glenjamn captured Fake Blood’s magic with his Ninja Vid skills. Fake Blood is using 2 CDJ’s and Serato, quite an impressive DJ setup for one man. His little live edit of Tiga’s Mind Dimension is great which segues into his own edit of Soulwax’s version of Daft Punk’s Teachers. He cuts up the syllables in Teachers to “say” Fake Blood like he does in all his remixes/edits. So great. I can’t wait to hear more of Fake Blood in 2009, I can’t believe I just got into him these past few weeks. Better now then never.

Justice x 28 Weeks Later

What does Glenjamn and a few of his buddies decide do when they get high? The most typical stoner thing, find songs that sync up to movies, Justice x 28 Weeks Later. Thus is born, 28 Stressful Weeks Later. This is some epic shit, Michael Jackson’s Thriller on crack. Justice should have just scored this entire movie. Is this our generation’s Pink Floyd and Wizard of Oz? I quote Glenjamn by saying this is “one of the most important stoner discoveries of our time”. Take note of the transition from Stress into Waters of Nazareth.

Kanye West vs. Ninja Cam Glenjamn

So Glenjamn snuck his camera into Kanye’s LA show and was able to capture some vids and photos from the show. What an epic looking show. I need to see Kanye this summer.
