X-Mas Tunes That Won't Krampus Your Style

I find that Christmas music generally is the worst shit ever. Talk about flogging a dead horse! This year I got to thinking that I need to get my Irving Berlin on and become a Christmas-music-making-Jew just to make the music more tolerable (I've admitted to myself that Christmas is probably here to stay so I guess I should just deal).

But hey check it out - here are some good ones: Two dudes who will dress up as Santa and have sex with your Mom!

Anyways - Happy Holidays children, and watch out for the Krampus!

PPU and Uku

And yet again People's Potential Unlimited has reached back into time and released a pair of supremely mysterious top secret jams. Fans of DâM-FunK style boogie and lo-fi soul should take a moment & check out these cuts from the vaults of Uku Kuut. Plus PPU hooked us up with an exclusive download! Here's a little insight into Uku...
Uku Kuut was born in the Soviet Union, raised in Sweden and Santa Monica California. When PPU finally caught up with him we were happy to find him still recording and producing music in Tallinn, Estonia. "I Don't Have To Cry Anymore" was Uku's first single released privately on his own label Polar Star Records in 1985. The song features Marju Kuut on vocals and Uku on Syntovox 222 Vocoder and the Oberheim DX. "Vision of Estonia" is an instrumental homage to Uku's home for the last 20 years. This will be the first time it's been available on vinyl.

Grab the 45 over at Earcave.

I Love Music

For a while now, I've been wanting to do a series of posts on disco era covers - those songs that were so big or so loved that everyone wanted a piece. Perhaps fitting for the inaugural post, here's the O'Jays' masterpiece "I Love Music." If I've missed any great covers feel free to let me know in the comments, or even better, send em to the blog and I'll add them to the post.

Edit: Zoinks! Just noticed the rip of Montana below is full of glitches. I'll reupload soon.

Philadelphyinz - Moombahton de Acero Vol. 2

"Bells and Whistles = summer 2011 anthem status."

-Dave Nada

This summer, Skinny Friedman and DJ Apt One made their first entry into the moombahton canon to rave reviews. Tracks from Moombahton De Acero got support from DJs across the country (and the world!). And now, Philadelphyinz is back with round 2!

Moombahton De Acero 2: MAS MOOMBAHTON MAS ACERO touches all the bases of the growing genre, from Skinny's takes on poppy house and rap hits to Apt One's forays into deeper territory. There's something here for everyone and it's entirely free!

Vintage Rune Lindbæk Mix!

Norwegian disco guru Rune Lindbæk recently unearthed a mix he did for a friend in 1997. It's a good listen & an interesting document of where disco was in the late 90's. Many thanks to Smalltown Supersound for posting it! Be sure to click the link for Rune's description.
