House party.

It's no secret that the majority of us like going to house parties, having a drink and a dance. This can at times be difficult if the host of said parties lacks good music taste or friends with said taste. Now, do your mates a favour and bring along this little mix to unite the crowd at the next bash you crash/throw.

I have a feeling that the ball cap wearing, dancehall loving crowd in Toronto will be fans of Rock Steady Drew already. Check out his mix if you haven't already.

thunderheist - jerk it from thatgo on Vimeo. i copied this video link from Palmsout so fast i didn't even know if my body could control itself.
seriously one of the BEST videos i have seen in a long time. Comparable to when I saw my first Orbital or Chemical Brothers video (see: Setting Sun)

Also, these cats are from Toronto. I've had Isis (the vocalist) yell my ear at least a handful of times. Holy lord, can that woman drink.

holy lord this so HOT!

Sunday, June 8, 2008

32 degrees celsius/89 degrees fahrenheit.

The past 2 days have been the hottest days (for June temperatures) since 195something.
The people are overjoyed. We love our heat here in Toronto, at least for the first two weeks.
I, for one, am looking forward to having my industrial fan going full blast while I sleep.

In keeping with my personal philosophy of "There's Song For Every Occasion", Dsico
seems to have the perfect tune for the perfect beginning to a perfect (hopefully) summer.

Some Like It Hot - Dsico

Dsico caught my attention maybe a year ago, doing remixes for ROC, Ollo and releasing some random one off ep's.

After a HUGE hiatus (I check his site bi-monthly what?!) he's back with a new (unreleased) album. An intelligent man is one that utilizes the Internet. As such the whole album is download-able at his site.

If you just want to taste the milk before buying the cow, try out this song for now...
