I'm having difficulty here...I'm working on 3 different mixes right now. This means that I probably won't be able to post a real one for at least another week. In the meantime, listen to the new Diplo and Santogold mixtape called "Top Ranking".

The other day, I found a track by M.I.A. and Santogold called "Get It Up" that's featured on the mixtape. It features remixes of her own songs as well as other artists that I assume she's been inspired by. It's difficult to classify the style of songs that are on here...which is fine by me.

Give it a shot. You might like what you hear.

(oh...and if you are the artist or represent the artist and need me to remove this, just leave a comment and I'll take it off)

A Hip Hop Podcast: Part Two - This Is Hip Hop
I don't even know what to write about this podcast. It's the second in the series and it was inspired because I will be seeing The Roots perform for the 3rd time later this month - two weeks before I head to Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Again, I don't even know what to write about it. I'm in music-listening and appreciating overdrive.

Here's "This Is Hip Hop".

1. Common (featuring GZA and Pharrell) - Announcement (paul remix)
2. Deltron 3030 -  Mastermind
3. Pharoahe Monch - Simon Says (paul remix)
4. Jaylib (feat. Pharoahe Monch, Black Thought and Dice Raw) - The Red (paul remix)

10. Ol' Dirty Bastard - Hippa To Da Hoppa

This is a podcast for those moments where you feel nostalgic for that classic hip hop and when you need that old school boom bap beat. Even if you haven't consciously thought about it before, play this mix and listen to the sultry sounds that are not only harmony-mixed...but blended with care. You'll soon discover that you can now define that mood you once thought you couldn't define. Crazy, hey?

So enjoy the sounds of 80s and 90s hip hop at it's finest.

Since I seem to use so many MSTRKRFT tracks in my mixes, I decided that it would make sense to create a 'best-of MSTRKRFT' mix. See? It only makes sense.

So here are most of my favourite tracks that MSTRKRFT has made even better! In addition, I sprinkled in a few of their originals as well. Word on the 'net is that MSTRKRFT will be releasing a new album in September. In the meantime, they've been consistently putting out remixes over the last couple of years. They've even began treading the pop-music market. I don't seem to mind...I now enjoy that Usher song.

1. Wolfmother - Woman (MSTRKRFT remix)
2. Brazilian Girls - Jique (MSTRKRFT remix)
3. Justice - D.A.N.C.E. (MSTRKRFT remix)
4. Usher - Love In This Club (MSTRKRFT remix)
5. Easy Love
6. Kylie Minogue - Wow (MSTRKRFT remix)
7. Metric - Monster Hospital (MSTRKRFT remix)
8. She's Good for Business
9. Services - Element of Danger (MSTRKRFT remix)
10. Paris
11. The Kills - No Wow (MSTRKRFT remix)
12. Chromeo - Tenderoni (MSTRKRFT remix)
13. Street Justice
14. New Young Pony Club - Get Lucky (MSTRKRFT remix)
15. Bodywork
16. Annie - Heartbeat (MSTRKRFT remix)
17. Death From Above 1979 - Sexy Results (MSTRKRFT remix)

paul: the reintroduction
This is a hip hop mix that I did sometime in 2006. As you can see from the tracklist, there are a lot of songs, yet the whole mix is only 50 minutes. I cut each track down to 1 or 2 minutes, leaving only the verses I like and I mixed the hell out of the rest. It was the first time I really put a vocal track over another beat, creating a blend of 2 songs. Most of the songs are blended into each other and the rest are tied in with interludes and other sounds. It's one of those mixes where I look back and shake my head because I think I spent much too much time doing things that only I'll be able to hear...unless you really know the songs well.

One of the blends that I was most happy with is the Lupe Fiasco vocal track for Kick, Push that I put over Kanye's beat he gave Cam'ron for the song, Down and Out. I'm not a fan of Cam'ron...especially what he raps over that beat, but I absolutely love that beat. It's at about 26:00 minutes if you want to skip and quickly check it out!

See Ya Socks!
This podcast is a compilation of songs from artists I've been listening to for the last few weeks. Most of them are by bands I'll be seeing at Lollapalooza this year. All of them are on constant rotation in my car and headphones.

The thing is, I'm a little worried. The high-level of hipster groove and soul within this collection has brought me to the point where I must warn you if you plan on listening to it straight through:

This compilation will rock your socks. I have personally been through 3 pairs of gray Costco socks - it actually puts the 'r' in 'rock-socking'. It's disgusting.

Be afraid.

Oh, and Santogold leads the pack. My socks flee my feet and run in pairs when they hear her name.

1) Santogold - Shove It (feat. Spank Rock)
2) Spank Rock - Rick Rubin (President Eutl remix) (3:30)
3) M.I.A. - 20 Dollar (6:53)
4) The Roots - Rising Down (feat. Mos Def & Styles P) (11:07)
5) J Dilla - Creepin' On You (14:40)
6) The Cool Kids - 'Sup (17:24)
7) Kid Sister - Girlie Rock (Flosstradamus mix) (19:48)
8) Black Kids - I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You (The Twelves Remix) (22:29)
9) Van She - Strangers (Van She Tech Remix) (26:05)
10) Bloc Party - The Prayer (Does It Offend You, Yeah? Remix) (29:51)
11) Does It Offend You, Yeah? - Doomed Now (33:08)
12) Santogold - L.E.S. Artistes (XXXChange Remix) (36:42)

That's pretty much what I was thinking when I heard the remix of Teenager's "Alone Again" by VAN SHE. They have a great way of cutting up the sample and fueling it with 80’s post punk, funk and synth pop. I began mixing that track with a Louis La Roche song before I realized that all I wanted to do was play VAN SHE remixes. So I blended a bunch of them together.

The great thing about VAN SHE is that they are, first and foremost, an Aussie band...not a 'remix band'. Their debut album, "V", comes out in August on Modular Records. On this album they worked with producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Ladytron, Kasabian).

What I've been most impressed with is the remixes they've done. Their 'sound' blends well together so I tried to make a VAN SHE 'remix-mega-mix' without screwing around too much. So, take the next 48-minutes and enjoy.

1) Teenager - Alone Again (Van She Tech Remix)
2) Ladyhawke - Back Of The Van (Van She Tech Turbo Fire Engine Mix)
3) Dragonette - I Get Around (Van She Vocal Mix)
4) New Young Pony Club - Ice Cream (Van She Tech Remix)
5) Martine Topley-Bird - Poison (Van She Mix)
6) I Am Finn - I Love You (Van She Tech Remix)
7) Feist - 1234 (Van She Remix)
8) The Bravery - Time Won't Let Me Go (Van She Tech Remix)
9) Klaxons - Gravity's Rainbow (Van She Remix)
10) Van She - Cat and the Eye (Van She Tech Remix)

J'ai une grenouille dans mon bidet!
I've mixed another electro podcast. I've been looping crazy samples for the past few weeks and trying to get away with blending them into 'French house' songs...even when the artists aren't French. It was awkward at first, but now they're friends.

My goal is to make it 'Frenchier', thereby turning it into 'Frenchier house'.

Another thing about this mix is that I've finally found a pretty cool beat from an A-Trak remix that I used for the Call Me Up acapella by Chromeo. It's pretty simple, but I think it worked. Also, I did a mash up of a hellogoodbye acapella over a Digitalism beat sometime last year and I decided to include it here because I'm playing around with this voice filter that works well.

I was recently introduced to the music of Louis La Roche. He's 17, from the UK, and just released an EP called The Peach that you can download for free. He's French house squared. I mixed his title track using a loop of Yelle, which I have been playing in my head for days now.

Also, I had an urge to make a Kris Kross remix.

All in all, I'm hoping it worked and you can enjoy it.

1) Justice - Stress (Auto remix)
2) Matt & Kim - Yeah Yeah (Flosstradamus remix)
3) Cut Copy - Lights & Music (Boys Noize Happy Birthday remix)
4) Boys Noize - Oh! (paul remix b/w Chromeo)
5) hellogoodbye - All Of Your Love (paul remix b/w Digitalism)
6) Ocelot - Lo Sforzo (Your Dirty Habit remix)
7) Chromeo - Fancy Footwork (Russ Chimes remix)
8) Yelle - Ce Jeu (The Twelves remix)
9) Digitalism - Pogo (The Horrors remix)
11) Louis La Roche - Peach (paul remix)
12) The Whitest Boy Alive - Golden Cage (Fred Falke remix)
13) Basment Jaxx - Rendez Vu (House Moguls Remix)
14) Kris Kross - Jump (paul remix)
15) Goldfrapp - A & E (Hercules & Love Affair Remix)
