Daft Punk: Behind The Helmets Documentary

daft-punk-feat Daft-Punk-Discover-Era-Helmets-Large DaftPunk2_zps8215df60 daftpunkoldskool3

The combined talents of DJs Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, the pair’s first projects together included Darling, a voiceless indie cover band; their current recording name derives from a review in U.K. music weekly Melody Maker of a compilation tape Darling were featured on, released by Krautrock revivalists Stereolab (their lo-fi D.I.Y. cover of a Beach Boys song was derided as “daft punk”). Subsequently ditching the almost inevitable creative cul-de-sac of rock for the more appealing rush of the dancefloor, the pair released their debut single, “The New Wave,” in 1993 on the celebrated Soma label. Instantly hailed by the dance music press as the work of a new breed of house innovators, the single was followed by “Da Funk,” the band’s first true hit (the record sold 30,000 copies worldwide and saw thorough rinsings by everyone from Kris Needs to the Chemical Brothers).

Pharrell Presents the World’s First 24-Hour Music Video

article-2511915-1995437100000578-323_634x478





Perpetually innovative and consistently creative, Pharrell Williams has recently launched the visuals for his Despicable Me 2 single “Happy” – completely stretching the capacity of the music video medium in the process. Williams channels the feeling of playing your favorite song walking down the sidewalk by recording a 24-hour sample of his life, looping the track in the background. Through menial tasks like going to the store or navigating a crowd, Skateboard P keeps thing interesting with cameos from Magic Johnson, Steve Carrell and even Odd Future, as well as some charming choreography.

Ghostface Killah’s Gritty RZA-Produced Comic Book: Twelve Reasons to Die

12ReasonsToDie-coverB_600px
12reasons

Spin -

Ghostface Killah’s Twelve Reasons to Die isn’t just a promising new album powered by the searing soul production of Adrian Younge. It’s also a comic book about “one vengeful soul hunting the 12 most powerful crime lords in the world,” and the list of guest artists is fiercely impressive: Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl), Paolo Rivera (Daredevil), Ramon Perez (Wolverine & The X-Men), Riley Rossmo (Bedlam), Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), and Kyle Strahm (Haunt), among others, plus 30 Days of Night‘s Christopher Mitten on the cover of Issue 1.

That debut entry in the six-part series hits stands May 29 courtesy of Black Mask Studios, a new publisher co-founded by Epitaph boss and Bad Religion O.G. Brett Gurewitz. The RZA is credited as the book’s producer, and his own Soul Temple Records will release the album on April 16. We’ve heard the excellent tracks “The Rise of the Ghostface Killah” and “The Sure Shot (Parts 1 and 2).” Now we have an opportunity to preview the comic via the trailer above, which promises, “Guns, sex, vinyl [and] revenge,” against a backdrop of grit.

Kanye West. Zane Lowe Interview BBC Radio 1

Screen-Shot-2013-09-23-at-5.24.45-PM



Part four coming in the next few days.

Kanye West interview with Zane Lowe from BBC Radio 1.

After the mixed reviews of Kanye’s latest album. This is a great interview to get more insight into his thinking behind the album and previous albums and even though I’m not the biggest fan of the album Yeezus. It’s given me much more appreciation for it and you have to admire his passion and confidence for everything he does.

Jawbone Mini Jambox

Jawbone-Mini-Jambox-4 Jawbone-Mini-Jambox-1-600x846

The biggest name in bluetooth speakers just got a little bit smaller with the new Jawbone Mini Jambox.  This svelte speaker system measures in at just six-by-two-by-one inches but manages to pack a whole lot of volume within.  It uses a pair of proprietary acoustic drivers and a passive bass radiator to fill a room with sound for casual listening.  It connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth 4.0 or the standard 3.5mm jack, the former allowing 33-feet of air room between your device and this speaker.  Not only is the Jawbone Mini Jambox functional, just like its bigger brothers, it’s also a stylish little thing.  It’s available in an array of colors and patterns that’ll excite the kid-in-a-candy-store in you.  For just $179, it’s primed to be an ideal holiday gift for a friend or family member for its fall arrival.
