As promised, here's the second "video" from the new EP. Just used some random visualizations with Winamp. Watch in HD! Also uploaded the third track, I'll include that as the "bonus beats" for today.

...aaaand here's the "video" for the title track. It's a re-hash of the old one I posted a couple years ago, but I've switched the audio. Just there so I have it on YouTube. The second video is done, and I'll be uploading it in a bit, so it'll either be up here later tonight or by tomorrow morning.

Let's try this again. I kinda released this one a couple years ago, but didn't like how it sounded and truth be told didn't really have a handle on the mixing and mastering side of things. After spending a lot of time learning new tricks and some proper skills, I think I'm a bit closer now. Enough to re-release this EP anyway. You can preview each track on Soundcloud, download the individual tracks from there, or download the whole EP from the link below. Enjoy.

I've been busy for the last few days. Busy doing not much, for the most part. Thankfully I've managed to sneak in a few hours on my own stuff, and with a little luck I'll have a finished original EP for you tomorrow. In the meantime check out my favorite episode of this series, it inspired me and hopefully it will inspire you too.

The crowd is pretty dull and I wasn't diggin' the hype man, but those are some slick moves. Reminds me of the good ol' days of Roxy Blu in Toronto. Awesome club with amazing dancers every night.

Last one for today, as promised here's the second crazy video from Monsieur Tellier. WARNING: Extremely sexually suggestive and packed with nudity. Directed by madman Alex Courtès.
This is a repost from over a year ago, but I just felt like it was worth another look/listen. Again not a big Alex Jones fan but this is an awesome edit by Fergus Breen.

The latest of the John Boswell's ongoing series of musical tributes featuring past and contemporary scientists.
This is actually a soundtrack for the 1921 short silent film by Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand. Gotta say they did a fantastic job. Watch the whole thing, it's worth the eleven minutes.
NOTE: For some stupid reason the film company has taken this video down. Hopefully it'll be back up shortly, I'll repost it when it is.
This is almost a year old now, but still a relevant and fascinating discussion on the future of technology and its ramifications on business featuring Michio Kaku, Michael Schrage, Isabel Aguilera, and Peter Diamandis. Feel free to skip the 15 minute rambling introduction by Gabriel Byrne.
I hate to bring up this topic again, but Breitbart posted this little excerpt from a 1991 literary agency booklet. Ol' Barry's bio doesn't quite match with the one he's been touting lately. The whole story is here.
Friday? How did we get to Friday already? Somehow I missed a day somewhere... Oh well here we are with the latest Epic Meal Time. Haven't watched one in a while, but I do love my burgers so I was stoked to check this out. I'm off on another adventure until Monday so here's some stuffs to keep you entertained.

Just another useless piece of junk from more than 2000 years ago. You know, when people were uncivilized brutes. They couldn't possibly have known anything about complex mathematics, or mechanics, or astronomy, or...

More minimal tech beats with a crazy video.
Claes Rosen - Into The Bloom [Luiz B Remix]
Sunday, May 13, 2012
Was on the road on Friday, and spent yesterday recovering. Been a busy weekend and I'm beat, so here's some classic southern soul to hold you over until tomorrow. This one goes out to bass player Donald "Duck" Dunn who passed away in Tokyo earlier today. This is him in action circa the mid 1960's alongside his legendary band-mates Steve Cooper on guitar, Al Jackson on drums, and Booker T. Jones on the keys.

Since we're on the topic of robots, check out this crazy support unit for paraplegics. Technology is opening all kinds of doors for modern medicine. Bring on the future!
I was going to re-watch Yellow Submarine this week, just for fun, but then I saw that it's coming out on Blu-Ray on June 5! No digital re-scanning on this one either, all the restoration has been done by hand! I suppose I can justify the wait for quality...

Here's the second new video from these guys. Great classic soulful house sound.
A Tribe Called Quest - Bonita Applebum [Sir Piers & Si Ashton Vocal Mix]
This is Claire Boucher out of Vancouver via Montreal. I'm not really sure what to think of her. I find a lot of her stuff to be a little... flat? I dunno, hit and miss. I don't mind this one though.
This is an extraordinary picture of an extraordinary moment in history. Can you recognize it? The full story is here if you get stumped. Try not to cheat by looking at the tags...
This might not mean anything to you un-tech-savvy folks out there, but believe me when I say that this is an awesome display of programming, arrangement, and a ton of practice. Mad respect to Riccardo Betti for this award-winning performance.
Yes! New Simian Mobile Disco! This is the first of two of their new videos, I'll post the other tomorrow. Both are radically different and while I prefer this one, they're both good. I'm really diggin' this track and the crazy video is great too. Better spice it up with some bonus beat action too, just to finish off the day. Back tomorrow with more great tunes!
Lauer - Trainman [Tensnake's "Franceman" Remix]
This is a great track. I was a fan of her before and I can't wait to listen to her new album. This track is kind of where I thought and hoped M.I.A. would go. Maybe there's still hope, and in the meantime this will do nicely.

Time to catch up on some new video releases. This is the latest video from my favorite album of 2011. Let's throw in a pretty dope bonus track too.
Miguel Campbell - Something Special
Monday, May 7, 2012
I've returned from my long Irish sojourn intact! In my absence the world has evolved somewhat. It's warmer here in Halifax, Manchester City has toppled Manchester United from the top of the Premier League, Leinster and Ulster will do battle for Heineken Cup glory, the GOP race is down to Ron Paul vs Mitt Romney, Nicolas Sarkozy is no longer the president of France, T.E.E.D. has a new album on the way, and the Blogger interface has been updated! Oh how times have changed! Hahaha... prepare for new original music, and a new website that's taking longer than I had anticipated to get done. Need to get my energy levels back up. Coffee time!
