DJ BAHLER – Crystal Hearts [Childish Gambino + Midnight Conspiracy + Crystal Castles + Health]

Apart from the fact that Childish Gambino’s rhymes sometimes make you go “fuck kid… did you just really?”, I’m really liking this mashup. It’s refreshing to hear some Crystal Castles mashed up ’cause I miss them…

DJ Shadow feat. Little Dragon – Scale It Back (Video Premiere)

DJ Shadow’s beats plus Yukimi Nagano’s voice = bliss. To this, creative visuals have been added by Ewan Jones Morris & Casey Raymond. It’s the tale of a man who remembers the order of playing cards by associating stories to them, and it’s really quite original. I’m digging it. Take a look for yourself:

Fela Soul – De La Soul meets Fela Kuti

What do you get when you put together afrobeat legend Fela Kuti and rap pioneers De La Soul? You get Fela Soul; a musical tapestry created by Gummy Soul artist Amerigo Gazaway. More than just a clever title, Fela Soul is an 8-track, 33 minute journey into the world of afrobeat rhythms, funky horn riffs, and classic hip-hop gems. Using dozens of hand-picked samples from the Nigerian instrumentalist and political figure Fela Kuti, and 8 carefully-chosen acapellas from the Native Tongue rap trio De La Soul, Amerigo seamlessly intertwines the two into something completely new and original.
