Lazers Never Die – Rave Review by Dan

maja laza
This EP is what MIA’s horrible new album should have sounded like. The opening track, Sound of Siren sounds like an anthem for our scandalous, thieving, decision-regretting generation. The EP keeps going with tracks like Good Enuff (Cash Flow Dub) and Bruk Out (Buraka Som Sistema Remix) that could keep the party chilled for hours – in the best of ways.

We all know and love Diplo, M.I.A.’s ex-hubby, DJ/Producer extraordinaire, and head of Mad Decent that has given rise to such artists as Major Lazer, DJ Sega, and Buraka Som Sistema. Well, now he got himself arrested in New Jersey.

Amanda Blank
Well, I know what I’m gonna be listening to on repeat for the next month. Amanda Blank, you know, that chick that hangs out with Diplo, Spank Rock, and Major Lazer? Yeah that one has just released what some (me) call THE SICKEST ALBUM OF THE SUMMER. The album is called I Love You which is weird but whatever, I don’t judge books by their cover. I recommend track no.4 Gimme What You Got (feat. Spank Rock). Its a sick beat mashed with Amanda’s uncanny ability to throw down lyrics like the best of them.

To be honest, I heard it wasn’t coming out until September, so I wasn’t on alert for it, but I just came across it on iTunes and oh my god – its like heaven in an album. PA is seriously tearing it up this summer. I’m sure Asher Roth and Amanda Blank are never going to go on tour together, but they really should. Their music fits together so well (Asher’s good stuff, Amanda’s…stuff).

Finally, I think we all admit that this album absolutely answers the question “Who is the queen of club? Uffie or Amanda Blank?” Well Uffie, I’m sorry to say but since you haven’t released a track since 1978 (rough estimate), you loose. All hail Queen Blank (that sounds so bad).

We Love This KID(DA) by Dan

Seriously, we love this kid. He seems to understand what’s becoming big before just about anyone else. You probably have heard his song “Feel Too Good” and his Anniemac minimix from a while back turned some heads. I’m pretty sure Feel Too Good is a back track for some Skoda or Fiat car commercial. The song is an anthem. Apparently he was scheduled to play this year’s Starfields but it seems to have fallen through as his myspace has nothing about it. His July full length mix features his hand picked tracks from this month as well as some of his personal remixes. Don’t think that this kid(da) is just a production prodigy either. A few months ago, he opened for Fake Blood at Cabaret Voltaire and tore the house down. Mad props. Check the mix here
