M.I.A. – “Bad Girls (Switch Remix)” (Feat. Missy Elliott & Rye Rye)

Well, this is awesome. Here’s a track from M.I.A.’s forthcoming Bad Girls remix EP, a Switch remix that features verses from Missy Elliott (!!!) and Rye Rye. It reworks the original into a stuttering dancehall anthem and tailors the beat to the choppy deliveries of the rappers. Hear it at Soundcloud. Bad Girls: The RemixesMore »

Watch No Doubt Prep New Major Lazer-Assisted Track “Push & Shove”

Last summer we posted a photo from Major Lazer’s visit to No Doubt laboratories, where Diplo and Switch made nice with Gwen Stefani’s crew and, according to @NoDoubt’s tweet that day, worked on a collabo track called “Push And Shove.” That demo has survived every subsequent production, label, and band meeting to the point that… More »

Santigold – “GO” (Feat. Karen O)

“People want my power, and they want my station.” The first listen from Santigold’s Santogold followup is a call to arms and a declaration and its credits read like the intersection of aural worlds and styles that was her last album (and, apparently, this one): Nick Zinner on guitar, Switch and Santi and Q-Tip o… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2010: Sunday Recap

The final day of 2010’s Pitchfork Festival was just as hot as Saturday, with stages that needed quick shots of energy to pull the audience out of its languor. Girls were pretty but wispy — though they sounded stronger as I walked over to Washed Out, who had the audience clapping along to his set. More »

New Major Lazer Video – “Keep It Goin’ Louder” (Eric Wareheim Version)

The DayGlo Ferry Gouw/Jason Miller-directed clip for Diplo & Switch’s zombie jam was pretty rad, but Eric Wareheim (who previously set “Pon De Floor” to dancehall dry humping) also did a Great Job. Watch his version here. More »

New Big Pink Video – “Dominos”

London pop duo Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell, aka the Big Pink, release their full-length debut A Brief History Of Love this September via 4AD. It’s a difficult album to pin down: You’ll catch clattering Suicide here/there, but with plenty slow and frozen synth balladry (John Hughes, anyone?), Jesus & Mary Chain (and Happy Mondays?!)… More »

New Major Lazer Video – “Pon De Floor”

Tim & Eric’s Eric Wareheim continues stockpiling hipster cred by taking a directorial credit on this new Major Lazer video. He brought a bit of an Awesome Show Great Job! sensibility to that clip for MGMT’s “The Youth,” but this one is more akin to his work on that hardcore-sex-masked-by-cute-animations piece for Flying Lotus. Maybe… More »

New Major Lazer Video – “Hold The Line”

As we’ve mentioned, Major Lazer is “Paper Planes” producers Switch and Diplo’s collaborative and conceptual dancehall project. As the concept goes, he’s “a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984,” etc. (e.g., he gets around on a rocket-powered silver-surfer board). Clearly someone of Major Lazer’s stature (and super-powered prosthetic… More »

“Paper Planes” Producers Recruit Santigold For Monster War

“Major Lazer is a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984. The US military rescued him and repurposed experimental lazers as prosthetic limbs. Since then Major Lazer has been a hired renegade soldier for a rogue government operating in secrecy underneath the watch of M5 and the CIA.” Pre… More »

New Björk – “Náttúra (Switch Remix)”

In mid-October we posted about Björk’s Náttúra,” a song that included extremely ambient vocal noises from Thom Yorke and prominent drums from Lightning Bolt and “Dull Flame Of Desire“‘s Brian Chippendale. As mentioned then, and as you likely already know, the proceeds from the sale of the track go toward funding the Náttúra campaign to… More »
