So it’s midnight here on the eastcoast and I realized something, I like midnight, I like it alot.  It’s the begining of a new day, all the hands of the clock are in the very same spot and the lore behind the hour goes as far back as man has had a standard clock.  Myths aren’t the only thing associated with this time, you’d be surprised how much music is related to midnight and how much of it takes you through every imaginable mood associated with the stigma of midnight. Dig!


DJ Shadow- Midnight In A Perfect World

The Killers- Midnight Show

Broker and Dealer- Midnight

Skream- Midnight Request Line ( Hot Chip Remix )

Justice- Two Minutes To Midnight (Live)


Shake Your…..

20 11 2008

In this edition of HCSY we will be discussing music that makes people want to, “shake what their momma gave them”, “bump the junk in their trunks”, “shake their groove things” and “bounce that ass, while letting me see what they got”.  I’ve come up with a sound track for these actions that will definitely get the glutes going.  With more bounce to the ounce than a vat of rubber, these songs have what it takes to get things rocking, or shaking, or jiggling etc.  


This first track sounds pretty painful but it’s actually quite dope, plenty of bass and great samples that get the party hyped.

Aniki- Nut Kickaz (Bass Weazal Remix)

Next up are a few remixes from DJ Barletta, again ample booty shaking fuel for the masses, Bass, Bounce and Bang.

DJ Barletta- Bass Live ( Misio Bootleg )

Since we’re on the topic of booty shaking I’ve got to throw in this Barletta remix of Lady GaGa’s Just Dance because well, she’s got a nice booty!

Lady GaGa- Just Dance ( DJ Barletta Crunk Edit )

Next up is a favorite of mine by Don Rimini

Don Rimini- Hools ( DJ Barletta Crunk Edit )

And closing out the DJ Barletta contribution is this impressive remix of Lil’ Wayne’s Lollipop.

Lil’ Wayne- Lollipop ( DJ Barletta Remix )

Now I think I’ll close this post out with a little Laidback Luke and A-Trak

Laidback Luke & A-Trak- Shake It Down

 Now don’t think I’m forgetting about your eye candy if the title image wasn’t enough here’s a little more.  Remember my mention of Lady GaGa?

Brand New Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit…..

Well guys I’ve decided to move over to WordPress to host my blog, no worries though all of the previous content is still here and it wont go anywhere.  Now I do wan’t your feedback on this new layout and the overall steez of HCSY.  I decided to also drop the Deus Ex Machina bit since, I want to change the direction of the blog.  As a bit of a celebratory event I’ll drop EXTRA music on your guys on top of the day’s earlier post.  These tracks are a vintage dopeness from yester-year with a new coat of paint so please do enjoy.


Z-Factor- I Am The DJ ( Remix of the Remix Dub Mix )

This song is an automatic win,  it depicts how DJs should be treated, JOCK ME DAMN YOU!

Michael Jackson- Thriller/THRILLA (Villains Remix)

One of the best damn pop remixes I’ve heard ever.


Now this next track isn’t a remix but it is a bit of new flavor from Miami Horror, I’m really digging this track and I’m sure you will too so, grab a shovel and turn up the bass.

Miami Horror- Make You Mine



Well that’s about it guys don’t worry along with the new digs will come some new eye candy.



Again thanks to all readers, and again to Rudy for getting me back into this PEACE!

Rudy this one’s for you….

Guess who’s back!  Yeah it’s been AGES since I’ve posted but I will be back at it and since I’m moving back to NY in a few months, I think the blog will head in an awesome direction in the coming months and hopefully beyond that.  I think I’m gonna hit you guys up with a good amount of music and news.  I won’t leak anymore of 808’s & Heartbreak than you guys have already gotten on blogs across the web, instead I’ll bless you guys with some new music I’ve just got my hands on and a couple bangers we all know that I’ve been rocking with.

First things first though guys I do want to update you on a couple things,  KR’s marker & ink company KRINK has just released something pretty impressive.  The K-66 steel tipped marker which comes in 10 different colors, I haven’t gotten word or tested them to check their opacity, ink flow or price but stay tuned for more info I cant wait to test these babies out!
In a fashion industry where the occasional bite is acceptable and often times hyped beyond expectations we often see a high end brand taking a page out of the little guy’s book.  There’s no better example than this recent effort by Louis Vuitton I stumbled upon.  It looks like LV has drawn inspiration from the skateboard culture’s OG brand Vans and whipped up this new collection.  With obvious beefed up soles and what seems to look like the legendary SK8 Hi’s and the Lo’s  rich cousins these shoe’s are pretty damn clean, released for the re-opening of one of LV’s Japan stores these sneakers should appeal to anyone looking for luxury in a classic sillouhette.
Now for the MUSIC portion of tonight’s program, just a little while ago I stumbled upon these tracks from a dude by the name of Pase Rock.  Fusing hip-hop and electro in a funk ass package full of shit I would find myself saying Pase does a good job of making fun and funny music we can all dance and laugh to.
Another group I’ve found is Heads We Dance, yes more electro but this is different….this sounds like robot orgasms.   I know what you’re thinking “Fucking great another electro group raping the shit out of a vocoder/auto-tune or talk box!”  And yes you guys are right they do use a vocoder/autotune, a lot but they do a great job of getting your head nodding, hipster girls 2 stepping in their fedora’s and swaying to the beat.  Warning: HUMAN TOUCH IS HEAVY ON AUTO-TUNE/VOCODER LISTENER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
This track right here nigga….this track right here nigga…this shit’s DEF!  Well really it’s closer to Bad Boy, Felix Da Housecat employed P.Diddy to feature on his track Jack U and my boys Jesse and Al of MSTRKRFT have taken the liberty of remixing and making it dope track even DOPER!
Now moving away from all things electro, I’d like to share with you a little of my favorite crack…..rap that is.  Pusha T and Malice are The Clipse ( if you don’t already know) and when you added Ab Liva and Sandman you had The Re-Up Gang.  Now unfortunately Sandman no longer is associates himself with Re-Up due to unhappiness with the politics of their last album but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate that fresh out the mayonaise jar, in your mom’s good pots baking soda-ey goodness that they once provided.  So I reintroduce to you R-E-U-P-G-A-N-G!
Now,I know I said we we gonna move away from electro this post but just as I was about to wrap up I got a little surpise on my computer screen.  The name of the band reeks of awesomeness and their sound is pretty much the voice of our generation ( fucked up by internet porn, fruit snacks, 90’s cartoons and college experimenting )and straddles the electro rock fence, as painful as that sounds.  Their name, Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head.   Yeah, that’s right no typo no mistake and no I’m not bullshitting you, those of you that know me well know that I have an unhealthy obsession with Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson( see first post ) and without hearing a tune this band was automatically cool with me.  Let’s have a listen shall we!
Well guys that about wraps it up for now, I did not forget the eye candy though so kick back and enjoy!  
P.S.  As a tolerant heterosexual male, I urge all of you guys to go out and fight for the civil rights of Gays and Lesbians in America, their right to marry is just as legal as anyone else’s.  Think about it as recently as the 60’s if a Black man were to want to marry a White woman that marriage would not be recognized legally.  There was a time when Black men couldn’t even marry Black women.  Honestly, stop using the Bible as an excuse to rob these individuals of civil liberties,  there is no sanctity in marriage because if there was, people wouldn’t be forced into it, it wouldn’t be given away as a prize on a reality T.V. show and it wouldn’t be used as a way to gain wealth.  All these people want is the right to have the same 50% chance of lifelong happiness that you have.  Their union does not threaten American society, homosexuality is not a disease and it does not threaten this country’s future.  So honestly, what is it to you?  How will two people who honestly love each other and want nothing more than to share each other’s lives hurt you, how is it your business?  Those of you who voted for Propositions 8&2 have successfully stripped away the right of happiness from your fellow citizens, so hug your big book of Jewish fairy tales and rejoice that you made a mockery of the freedom that this country promises.
