Dj Eli(Ell-e) Escobar..known mostly for being a great NY DJ and his great remixes(One of my favorite remixers..I'm always checkin his Mspace)..Steps in for Ronson to do this weeks Authentic Sh*t Podcast... You can tell hes from New York...I feel like I'm in some trendy bar/club with like couches and random chicks all over the place whenever I hear his mixes..Not a bad thing btw...Anyway Eli Escobar doesn't dissappoint with a solid mix of some exclusives(as expected) of his own. Since it seems that this blog has taken a turn towards house/dance/electro/jazz/downbeat music(kind of a reflection of my mood lately) this week its only fitting that Eli Escobar would guest DJ for Ronson.

New video from the Scottish band Franz Ferdinand.... Another pretty good track off Franz's record...I posted their song 'Dream Again' a while back but it got pulled as I expected it probably would...Definitely give their album a listen if your fiending for some new Rock...
Another great track off Giles Peterson's show....Kay Suzuki is one of London's biggest Djs and one of the worlds best house/downbeat djs...I can only take so much house music, but every once in a while a track comes on that gets the vibe in the right place..This would be that recrord.

This remix is relatively new...Mayer Hawthorne's by now classic record gets the Astronote remix treatment....Perfect Saturday freeload material...

So I was listening to Giles Peterson(Life Goal: Be half as knowledgeable of world music as Giles) last week and I heard a bunch of dope records on his show but 2 stood out to me and its crazy cause they're more on the house tip(Not really a big house fan), but I liked them so much I did some editing work and decided to bring them both to you...Lets start with this great track remix by Phlash & Friends of Shea Soul's 'Tricks'...The record is catchy and I like British Soul/R&B/Funk/Jazz/House/Hip-hop/Dubstep....Enjoy!

Off L.A. based Production duo L.A.U.S.D's new project..L.A.U.S.D. presents… Curly Tops & Nautica Jackets ..Freshselects dropped the ridiculous leak I made a post about a minute ago... I've been looking for it and now its here...The record is ill...Kind of Miss Jack and Blu doing a little flirting...OK..I'm done for the night one of the dopest tracks I've ever posted in this blogs short existence is here now.
So I hadn't been on Miss Jack's blog in a minute but supposedly Blu rapped a line 'Pipe dreams, I reach for daily/Stoned daisy, and daydream about bonin’ J*DaVeY' on the track 'Say Say' which you can hear ...here... Miss Jack made this post...I heart u 2 Blu with the XXL video of Blu spitting the verse...and the world found itself with this little track...Miss Jack even spits..

This week its a sick Harrington style Jacket from the Nike Sportswear S/S 09 Collection. Available only @ select Nike Dealers(will update with dealers and prices later..)...The best way, it seems to me, to describe the Harrington is that its a Bomber/Track jacket hybrid...The ribbing on this jacket is major fresh...

The Stones throw affiliated DJ..Dam Funk.. has been killin the L.A. music scene for a minute.. I became aware of him via 'The Do-over' which is my favorite Summer spot out here in L.A..... His record 'LAtrifying' hit me like a brick wall when I heard it on Ronson's Authentic Sh*t Podcast a couple of weeks ago and since it hasn't leaked in full form to the net and it seems we'll have to wait for the 12" for 'Lets Take Off' to hit stores whch will include 'LAtrifying'... But since I have some music editing knowledge I did some work and now I have Daniel Merriweather's Freestyle over Latrifying and also Dam-Funk recently made Lets take Off(Far Away) available for download via dublab....So now I bring you both...
Dam Funk - LAtrifying(Daniel Merriweather Remix)
Dam Funk - Lets Take Off(Far Away)
Be sure of one thing when I get my hands on it Latrifying will be right here..
So I saw this video of Ryan Leslie rehearsing a new track 'Zodiac' and as usual when Ryan posts these videos (and he only seems to do this with songs he knows are going to be bangers) I knew I was going to be searching for it from that point on... Well so far thats come with little luck, but that doesn't mean no luck... The good people @ Rmx4u did the work for me...I believe this is ripped from this video...
Download: Ryan Leslie - Zodiac(Snippet)
BTW...Ryan's dance @ the end of this clip...lol..
Set for an April 1st release these kicks will definitely be one of the most anticipated releases of Nike's 09. Its hard to see how any other brand even approaches Nike with the quality of releases this year. Nike will clearly own the 09.
