Dose of Buckley on T-Swizzle

Good point about poor little Taylor Swift and her war on Spotify by A Dose of Buckley. Her work isn’t rare art, I would dispute it is art at all, apart from the pop-art sense. But certainly it’s not as special or wonderful as she thinks (I notice that Shake It Off makes his Top Ten Worst Songs of 2014, qnd quite rightly along with the execrable Anaconda by Nicki Minaj who would be my #1, and anything featuring that fake rapper Iggy Azalea. I was going to post that here, but calling Katy Perry a cunt is way beyond ‘angry Canadian’ and going into misogyny. :-/ He’s also partly wrong about All About That Bass, there are worse songs than that although his points about the double-standard are correct, it’s not that bad a song musically, it at least has a tune. So you got this instead.)

Totally Pointless Policing

Whoever placed this poster outside New Scotland Yard (HQ of the Metropolitan Police), not only does that take serious cojones you are my Person of the Year ;-) These posters are originally from Strike Magazine and seems like someone has worked out how to replace those bus shelter posters with something far more truthful.

And cheaper than MILLIONS the Met spent last year telling us how so wonderful and brilliant they are. They spent nearly half a million pounds on that campaign alone? Right.

Apparently they’ve been Infiltrating Christmas too on the Tube. Love it. Subvertisements with some real meaning, at last…let the #notallpolice and #onebadapple comments commence!

Mr B Needs Your Love

When you think of Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer you might not think of house, but Mr B The Gentleman Selector has recently released a collection of electroswing ‘chapstep’ tracks called Acid Ragtime, and included is this excellent mashup/cover of Frankie Knuckles ‘Your Love’ – Jive Bunny meets acid house with that clever In the Mood sample ;-) Very clever.

The Cats Piano is rather good, also:

And on the CD but not the download is Monty’s Acid, but you can currently get it here for free. One guess what it’s an acid remix of…*cue big foot*

Now available over at his shop, or at all half-decent download establishments. Good show!

Santastic 9 & Bomarr Go Crackers

Finally got around to some Xmess music, doesn’t feel Xmassy til December (why I tend to never get around to doing mashups til late, I don’t get in the mood – if ever – until a week or two before. Although recently I’ve been a bit Grinch about the whole deal) and listening to another good Santastic compilation from djBC, a rather germanic selection featuring mashups and remix crizzle shizzle from DJ Morgoth, DJ Schmolli, Voicedude, DJ M.i.F., ATOM, mojochronic, Divide and Kreate and G3RSt.

My faves are this Flula sampling track from ATOM describing why Santa Claus is a stalker:

And djBC’s Forgot About Merry (Staple Singers vs The Christmas Villains) is very good also:

Also the G3RSt one aint too shabby either…Shawn Lee and Metallica FTW! You can download it all with artwork here.

And Bomarr has another Wild Xmas mix out, it’s great if extremely strange, the more experimental and outsider part of Chrisslemas. Watch this space, this and other Xmas strangeness might have inspired a new Bah Humbug mix…Watch this space.
