Music and other modern musings

I COULD have loved you

I know I like Burns, Jack Splash and Missy (man, do I love Missy!) but I’m not sure how I feel about this Burn’s remix of Flash’s I Could Have Loved You. Its kind of all over the place. I think I could have loved it had it not made me feel as if i’m listening to a 60 min New Wave set thats been compressed (tightly) in 5 minutes and 36 seconds.

Jack Flash – I Could Have Loved You feat. Missy Elliot (Burns Remix)

I do, however, LOVE this Burns track!

Burns – In My Eyes

I posted an excellent His Majesty Andre mix of In My Eyes in my TGIF post two weeks ago. You can grab it here.

King of Bass

 Canadian king of bass and modern dance hall, Ghislain Poirier, is playing at tonight’s edition of Disorganized. Undeniably a show not to be missed if you are in the hood…or can get there.


Here is some of his best mixes from my favorite album, Bounce le Remix. He’s recently released Vol. 3 though I believe these tracks are from the first edition.

Ghislain Poirier – Missy Elliott
Ghislain Poirier – M.I.A.
Ghislain Poirier – Vanilla Ice
Ghislain Poirier – Lady Soveriegn
Ghislain Poirier – Bon De Role

And here is something a little more recent featuring Mr Slaughter,

A whole lot 2 step 2!

Here’s the brand new video from Greg and Isis, aka Thunderheist, for their forthcoming single Nothing 2 Step 2 which is to be released April 20th on Big Dada – the American extension of Britain’s Ninjatune and host of great acts like the famed French hip-hop artists TTC, Roots Manuva, Two Fingers, Spank Rock, and Diplo. Diplo (Wesley Pentz) recently released a new album on Dada as well. Decent work for decent play is reported to be an overview of what Diplo’s been up to for the past 4 years since the release of Florida and is certainly worth the listen. If you’ve missed either you can more than likely download them for free but I would recommend hopping over to the Ninjatune Ninjashop where you can buy either the CD or the Mp3 pac.

This vid is truly amazing. A simply edited production which provides a pretty profound impact.

Greg and Isis will be taking the stage at Montreal’s Club Soda on April 11. If you’ve not seen them before and are in the area be sure to check this show! Its worth making the trip for. The two never disappoint the crowd.


Here’s an oldie to step to as well.

Missy, how I miss the.

Just yesterday a mate of mine and I were reminiscing about good old, freaky, always got the way-ahead-of-the-times-videos, Missy Misdemeanour Elliott, and today, BAM! here she is, in my interweb travels.

Canada’s very own Two Fingers have really come to prove themselves with this down-tempo and raw take on Missy’s ‘Best Best’

This is bound to bring back a memory or two, Work it!

And in case you were wondering…
