Santigold Announces North American Spring Tour Amanda Blank and Trouble Andrew To Support
Santigold will take her endless dance party across the US one more time this spring before heading back into the studio to record the follow up to her smash self-titled debut. Santigold will be performing with a full band and dancers for the first time in North America to bring her genre-blending sound to life. Virgin Records artist Trouble Andrew, who can be heard on the Santigold track “I’m A Lady,” along with Downtown Records’ singer/mc Amanda Blank will be the openers.
Santigold recently released “Brooklyn Go Hard,” a duet with Jay-Z produced by Kanye West that samples her current single “Shove It,” which is the lead single from the Notorious B.I.G. biopic Notorious. She recently performed “Shove It” on the debut week of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Downtown/Lizard King released Santigold’s self-titled breakthrough CD in April 2008 and it instantly became one of last year’s most acclaimed albums garnering international raves. Critics and radio have championed the record’s standout singles “L.E.S. Artistes,” “Creator” and “Shove It.” Both the album and singles made countless “Best of 2008” lists from Rolling Stone to The Wall Street Journal.

MP3: Kero One - "When the Sunshine Comes" 03.26.2009 The summer is here / The drama's clear / It's time to call the girls / Bring the boys and beers
Whether our weatherman corroborates or not, spring has already officially arrived, just in time for Kero One to lace us with the perfect soundtrack for long summer days filled with sun, good friends, and good fun. Roll back the drop top and cue your warm weather playlist, which will undoubtedly include Kero One's "When the Sunshine Comes." Featuring the smooth vocals of Britain’s Ben Westbeech over improvisational guitar, syncopated keyboard rhythms, and a soulful bass line, Kero One tells of the relief the summer brings. After heartbreaks and baby daddy blues, the sunshine is the light at the end of the tunnel.
Former web designer by day and rapper/producer/DJ by night, Kero One, stands as a true testament to the do-it-yourself success story. His early career was marked by endless hours of researching, cold calling, and networking to gain exposure for his debut, self produced project Windmills of the Soul. Persistence paid off with a little help from fate when one of the 50 copies of his album was picked up in a tiny record store in Tokyo, Japan. Success was immediate, as Windmills of the Soul became a hit overnight, which opened the floodgates for international touring and performance opportunities. Three years later, after a Best Hip Hop Album of 2006 award and collabos with Talib Kweli and Mark Farina, Kero One is back with his sophomore album entitled Early Believers, via his label, Plug Label. Modulating from soulful jazz tinged tracks to upbeat synth-driven party bangers, Kero One features some his favorite vocalists such as Giles Peterson protégé UK singer Ben Westbeech, Finland's own modern day "Stevie Wonder," and Portland's Ohmega Watts. Early Believers will be released in April 2009, just in time for spring cleaning and summer fun.
Big Urban - "Love Is a Battle" feat. StarPower 03.25.2009 "Baby said I was a clown so I thought she wasn't down but she meant I wore big shoes meaning I got big news."
After giving us their serious side in "Snap to the Future," Big Urban unveils the comedy in "Love Is a Battle," the second release off of their forthcoming EP, It's Not So Much the Heat, It's the Humidity. In freestyle fashion, Krayola rhymes about how his heartbreak has left him with a gruff appearance and eating food that even a starving college student wouldn't touch while guest emcee StarPower's self-control wavers as he's tempted after exchanging vows. With production by Scott Thorough, "Love Is a Battle" is a club joint, complete with a pounding bass beat, a distorted vocal chorus, and an ending that has a dash of electronica.
Big Urban is the collaboration of emcee Krayola Spectrum on the mic and producer Scott Thorough on everything else. Both native to Brooklyn, Kray and Scott are members of the Nuclear Family, a Brooklyn hip-hop collective also including Baje One, DJ Snafu, Tone Tank, Probe Cellsplitter and N.E.M.C. Kray and Tone Tank make up the group Iller Than Theirs, who released their self-titled debut album on Embedded Records in 2007 and a follow-up, Wash, Rinse EP, in 2008. Scott is also a member of The Boys & Girls Club and also does production for Baje and Snafu's group Junk Science. Big Urban describes their music as "a failed attempt to make popular commercial rap music that failed horribly but came out sounding weird and interesting anyway." Their debut EP It's Not So Much The Heat, It's The Humidity will be released via Embedded Records this spring.

TIP arrived at an Atlanta courthouse just after 9 this morning, followed by his girlfriend Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle and members of his Grand Hustle team. The ATL superstar and his legal team worked out a plea deal that had TIP performing thousands of hours of community service, some of which was documented on his MTV show 'Road To Redemption.' T.I. is expected to begin his sentence within the next 6-8 weeks."
I'm aware that Kutiman's "Thru You" YouTube project has been circulating since the beginning of this month, but it was only been recently that I had the opportunity to experience his artistry. Although the idea of dissecting YouTube videos and reconstructing them into an original track isn't the most innovative, Kutiman's execution remains effortless as he puts others who have taken on this challenge in the dust.
Kutiman's three month "Thru You" project consists of seven individual tracks/videos incorporating an extensive list of amateur YouTube videos that he sampled, cut, and edited on his own. With his sensational talents, Kutiman deserves the moniker of "YouTube's DJ" as his videos have attracted well over a million hits so far.
"I'm New" is the most RapReviews appropriate and the most admired with its hip hop influence as Kutiman samples obscure videos including a cabasa and another with a cash register, as well as including an impressive freestyle and vocals. Also, Kutiman includes the source YouTube videos he sampled, so for those of you who are further intrigued by his art, be sure to check them out to fully understand the project.
To think, Kutiman's "Thru You" project was originally sent to twenty of his friends and has now exploded worldwide. With this in mind, Kutiman can be called the DJ Shadow of YouTube as he clearly deserves some praise for his artistry.
