Couldn't post last week, but it seemed to me like everyone was heading in the same direction: Ok Go's video and Katy Perry getting kicked off Sesame Street. If you missed either of those, you have no pulse.
1. Duck Sauce - Barbara Streisand Video
Duck Sauce (A-Trak & Armand Van Helden) released an EP last year that brought back some disco funk and I totally ate it up. They are set to release a new single and this is the crazy video with too many cameos to mention. If you listen closely, you'll notice a few edits, remixes and additions that really make the song sound better than the original. Check out P-Thugg at 1:30 & DJ Premiere scratching it up right after that! Blink and you might miss Diplo sneaking in/out through the window...
2. Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake - A History of Rap
Jimmy Fallon has been quietly ruling late night. Maybe I'm still pissed about the whole Leno/Conan fiasco, but no one can fuck with Fallon's guests or musical acts. This year I've seen Paul Simon play with the Roots, Phish rock out as part of Rolling Stones week, Cheech & Chong break out the classic "Mexican-Americans" and now this... Watch him every night.
3. Felix Cartal - Fall 2010 Mix
Daily, I hear crap. That isn't a joke. Daily, I dig through emails and search for new stuff. But for the most part everyone is jumping on Dubstep and it's HUGE bass. Like anything there is a place for it, but with it being so trendy, finding a great mix is hard. Leave it up to Felix Cartal to drop something new and incredible. I've been blasting it for the past two days and hope you start your weekend off right. BTW, stay away from Deadmau5's new track "Raise Your Weapon", or try and find it for a prime example of shit my ears hear on the regular.
