99 Problems And A Mashup Aint One (or Two)

You might have seen quite a few Jay-Z 99 Problems vs Nena related mashups already today. I couldn’t possibly comment, as it’s all secret codeword: Project Flake. But check over at r/mashup or your favourite mashup site for a special crumplebangtastic treat. ;-)

And it seems DJNoNo has got in on this 99 mania, because Tim’s away at Glastonbury the mice do indeed play. All 99 of them, attached to little red balloons. WHEEE! If you missed your dose of Accordions or Happy Hardcore, NoNo-style you is in for a treat. Otherwise I suggest running in the opposite direction, followed by little mice hovering on balloons.

This is the Squeezettes live version of 99 Red Balloons vs Jay-Z with his 99 Problems (And Solange Aint One). Fun fact: the line is stolen from Ice-T, but the bitch referred to in Jay-Z’s track is a double meaning, it’s actually referring to a dog. It’s a true story about being pulled over by the police, and waiting for the drug sniffer dog to turn up (the Canine in the lyrics) which turned up late so Jay-Z got away, even though he had drugs in the boot of his car.

99 hardcore problems

And this is the infamous happy hardcore version of 99 Red Balloons by Jimmy Jay that was such a hit at the Bootie Bastard Invasion in 2006, mixed with Jay-Z again. Features a familiar voice also – this is almost breakcore speed, 180+bpm bitches! ;-)

RC 261: May The Bridges You Burn Light The Way (!Summer)

Aka Lang May Yr Lum Reek…the Not Summer edition (well Summer can’t make up it’s mind, so really ±Summer) Dark and cloudy at times, it seems the light from all the burnt bridges might be more reliable?

[Image is a burnt out scooter from Ham Lands, a supposedly sunny/cloudy day just when it started raining...]

So it goes, so it goes! The latest podcast covers a lot of new music – yes stuff actually released in the last month, from Sage Francis to TV Girl with new albums out, the new Enjoy the Science Depeche Mode 8-bit compilation is finally released, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Vegan Leather with new releases, some mashups and lots of hazy lazy or crazy electronic vibes.

Really Bandcamp should be sponsoring this podcast at this rate!

RC 259: Pop Is Dead #4 – We Hate The Kids (And Rock and Roll)

Fourth in the Pop is Dead series, and it’s all about hate – hating rock and roll, hating the kids, hating the hangers on, hating the Spice Girls, hating the fakers, hating music even. Oh and a little bit about Britpop False Memory Syndrome / Fake Nostalgia.

The cover features as well as the classic Sex Pistols stuff, several of the teen fashion shops in the US selling Punk by the Pound, as if you can go punk in 5 easy steps (one of the graphics says GO PUNK! which apparently means shiny iPhone covers and new leather jackets?!). There’s been a lot of debate about the frankly awful Misfits merchandise, and Ramones jumped the hipster ship years ago – but also surprised to find Clash and Crass on those sites (maybe they’re being ripped off like Minor Threat was) – and a really funny ‘Anarchy’ tshirt with the model trying to be all Black Bloc Chic. Err…Oh and one site is selling a Britpop costume, so you too can look like Liam or Noel! :-/

The only thing I find really offensive is the COBAIN 27 tshirt. 27 being the age he killed himself – we don’t need to perpetuate the myth of the 27 club any more.

Well I hope it means those kids check out the music, or even better make their own – that would be a far more radical thing than wearing a label to a long dead subculture.

Haters gonna hate, and write good songs about it. (158 Mb 2:03)
