Hailing from the great nation of Brazil, Faroff can be credited with bringing the Bootie Mashup Movement to the South America, when he headlined A plus D's first Bootie Brazil Party."Ray No Speak No Americano" takes the man who brought us some of the greatest blues of all time and throws him into Yolanda Be Cool's club mix that's been rocking the dance hall seen for months. My homeboy Dj joc.la.roc is kind of a hater on "We No Speak no Americano", but last time I threw it down at a party, the dance floor went nuts and people couldn't stop asking for track info so they could scramble home and download it. Anyways, enjoy the track kids......

I mean c'mon, if the title of this post doesn't get you jumping out of your seat, then you're either a ginger, and therefore have no soul, or you hate music and probably shouldn't be reading this in the first place. Peter Axelrod, aka DJ Axel, has been tearing up SoCal as a guest DJ at the infamous Bootie Mashup Parties, and "Metal Romance" won't disappoint.

The Cataracs first made it onto my radar after the release of their mixtape with DJ Greg Street I Thought They Were Black?!, and were featured in one of Audionugs' first blogposts because I couldn't stop listening to this new hip-hop influenced indie-pop sound coming out of the Bay Area. Niles Dhar and David Singer Vine, who make up the Berkeley duo, create a chaotic orgy of auto-tuned harmonies, pop synthesizers and rap beats that sounds authentic enough for the Bay Area that brought us the hyphy movement. While musically more sophisticated and complex than the likes of E40 and Mistah Fab, The Cataracs have stayed true to their roots and continue to rip through the charts, most recently with "Like a G6", which features both Dev and the Far East Movement. We were actually blasting it out our window last night in Adams Morgan and got some pretty solid crowd reactions from the street, which included a couple people getting hyphy in the middle of 18th street. Enjoy the track, alongside "Undercover", which some of my friends have actually mistakenly assumed was a new MGMT track, so I'm sure you'll dig it....

We posted a Mark Ronson track featuring Ghostface Killah a couple of weeks back that I was really into, and it got me on this 3-week Ronson music binge. "The Bike Song", which features both Kyle Falconer and Spank Rock, is soon to be the hipster biking anthem for the fall, so get your single speed road bikes and ipods ready kids. Record Collection, Ronson's 3rd album, will be released on September 28th, and has been well received by music critics, who see his diverse influences from the Lennons to Duran Duran to The Supremes, all over the album.

As the great Sam Cooke once said, it's been a long time comin.... but Mashup Mondays are back and this week its time to highlight another up and coming mashup dj. Mother Earth Remixes, aka Andrew David, hails from the Happy Valley of PA, where he moonlights as a Penn State undergrad while putting together great mashups like Fireman vs. Sexy Can I, highlighting Weezy's lyrical maturation in The Carter 2 with Ray-J's lightly up-beat pop instrumentals..
Make sure to check out Mother Earth Remixes Facebook if you like what you hear...

First off, I've got to apologize for the lag in posts - its been a crazy 2 weeks of spinning, moving to a new apartment, Rosh Hashanah, etc. - but the moral of the story is that we're back!!!!
Like I've said time and time again, nothing gets me more pumped than new B.O.B. tracks and "Let 'Cha Boy Go", a 4-IZE track featuring B.O.B. does nothing to disappoint. 4-IZE, who entered the rap game as a member of the Loudmouth Hooligans, an Atlanta rap crew that featured the likes of Ludacris, has never really made his footprint on a national scene, but I'm sure the blogosphere will be kind to him on this one.
p.s... how fucking creepy is that grill????
