I was going to wait until tomorrow to upload these, have it be like a happy November first post. But I can't. This is honestly my most exciting set I've put up yet. These songs are SO incredibly gnarley, raw, and dangerous. Please...put everything out of your mind and listen.

Felix Cartal - Love at Dawn (We Rage Remix)

I found this song I think maybe...less than 24 hours after it leaked. SO dirty. So illicit.

Royskopp - What Else is There (Thin White Dukes Remix)

Love the original to this, and I heard this remix in Miami last weekend. I listened to some other TWD remixes, kids are on point.

Don Diablo feat. Dragonette - Animale (Datsik Dubstep Remix)

Sexy sexy beat. Don Diablo's beats always makes me want to do something illegal. Plus Martina Sorbara's voice is so unique, so it makes the song that much more eccentric and creepy -- plus this extra dubstep? yumyumyum.
stamp your hindlegs, get behind me, ANIMALE.

The Bloody Beetroots - F*ck*d from above 1985

Just some really good feel good music.

Jamiroquai - Blue Skies (Flux Pavilion Remix)

Save the best for last! I'm so excited about this song. Flux Plavilion just keeps getting better and better. I thought he hit his peak with the remix to the DJ Fresh song 'Gold Dust', but nope, this song is SO killer I can't even stay still listening to it. I think I may have teared when the beat dropped in my head for the first time.

Okay, I was NOT going to put this video up because I like to keep this blog somewhat clean, but this video is AMAZING. Totally a take off of Requiem for a Dream, so creative, and explains quite a bit.

I want these pants. shorts... whatever they're called. I want I want.

Note to self: Stop Eating.

Whyyy can't there be guys like this in Florida. Kiev, here i come.

Seriously missing these bad chicks.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Clearly I'm out at a RAGER right now... Wasn't feeling too well tonite, even though there was a banger going on, and everyone and their damn mother was going. I had thee dopest Courtney Love outfit too. Oh well what can you do. I have an incredible plethora of new tunage for your pleasure. I was finally able to sit down and attack all music blogs, and I am quite happy with what I've found.

Shroedinger's Cat by Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger just came on my itunes. What a perfect song for the holiday. I'd upload it...but....


Crystal Castles feat. Robert Smith - Not In Love

YES, CC, been waiting for something like this.

Ellie Goulding - Lights (Eyes Remix)

Her voice sure is something else. Plus this sweet dubBbBbstep overlay is totally killer.

Chemical Brothers - Dissolve (Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Chemical Brothers always kind of murder it since back in the day, but who better to help with a homicide other than the Bloody Beetroots! Screaming synths over a comp-violin sounding beat? Wonderbar.

Eddy B & Tim Gunter - Mad World (Gary Jules original)

As soon as I heard this I fell in love. Possibly because I've been obsessed with this song ever since I heard it in Donnie Darko, of course. And because it's Halloween, I figured that a Donnie Darko song may seem somewhat appropriate. Sweet rap flow with it too, not even gunna lie. Tight.

N.A.S.A. - Gifted (Kanye West, Santogold, and Lykke Li)

First heard the original last year when Brit sent it to me from her UrbzOutz playlist, but then I heard this last night...and :47 when that low beat sneaks in...yumm.

Sunday Girl vs Rusko - Hey Stop (Club Remix)

Sup Sunday Girl, nice to have you back on the blog.

90's Relapse

The 90's relapse just will not subside. I was writing a paper the other night, and I got SO sidetracked because the song "Stupid Girl" came on by Garbage, and I hadn't heard that song probably since I would jam to it with my oldest sister when I was like...10. So then I went on a 90's grunge hunt, and downloaded a lot of Garbage, Soundgarden, old Alanis, brough Marilyn Manson back to life, I found the album Tragic Kingdom by No Doubt, I threw on some Korn and Powerman 5000...oh my it was nice. And please tell me you remember the song Tubthumping by Chumbawamba....

Garbage - Stupid Girl

Shirly Manson, how are you so bad ass yet so beautiful.

I also was looking up old school pics of the grunge era, and I totally found some vintage goodies. And since fashion week was FILLED with the reincarnation of the 90's, I figure it be okay to indulge a little bit.
My roommate actually also just bought THEE most 90's dress I've seen since the one bought last year, and she left me to go visit the fall, so I'm totes stealing it this weekend muwahahha sorry Aimee.

Oh oh I also found this dope skinny cross necklace like the one Alanis had on in her video from '91 that I recently posted. Check ittt.

Check out these sweet vintage Kate Moss and C-Love pics I found...

These pics are just because I love their clothes.

How hot is my friend? She's keepin' it real for me in NYC while I'm away. MISS YOU BABY, see you soon dollface.

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

I'm on vacation, that's why I haven't been blogging, but I am going crazy not being able to write. I have a nine page paper to write when I return, yet I have so much to talk about when I get back and so many music blogs to violate! I cannot wait to dive into finding music but I'm hardly going to have time for ittttt. Ugh. Going to be late nights. I promise I will be uploading soon - I come back tomorrow!
Anyway, I decided to upload a couple of pictures. One is the house I'm staying at, really beautiful, so nice of them to let us stay, and the other is our beach. Miami is craaaaaazy. But the people I'm with is making this trip amazinggg. Best family ever.

Check out this sweet pic I found from the SHM tour....:'(

I'm really excited about this set. I'm dancing in my seat typing this actually listening to these songs. In honor of me going to Miami this weekend for break with a friend I thought that I would upload some heavy dance tunes.
Listen with caution.

Armin Van Buuren feat. Sharon Den Adel - In & Out of Love

My friends showed me this song one time when we were studying. ...didn't study the rest of the night.

Pitbull feat. T-Pain - Hey Baby (Drop it to the Floor)

I just heard this somewhere on the interwebz, and I recognized it because...Ana and I danced to this one night when we weren't exactly sober. At some dance place. And I believe we were not on the floor...

Afrojack feat. Eva Simons - Take Over Control

Afrojack never really fails. And Eva's vocals just add that much more to it.

Diplo feat. Lil Jon - U Don't Like Me (South Rakkas Remix)

Dirtiest beat since GET OUTTA YOUR MIND. Heavy dirty raw.

MIA - Steppin Up (Nacey Remix)

You guys know I have mixed feelings on MIA due to the party I went to of hers over the summer...where we all got kicked out because of POOR PLANNING. It was such a bummer. Whatever, this song is like...lighter than her normal future music. It's totally...pretty.

Stromae feat. Kanye West & Gilbere Forte - Alors On Danse

Whatever, I don't even care that this is old. This is one of the sexiest beats ever. The original is even better...due to the fact that it's sung in French. mmmm.

AO - AO: Lewis Wilde

So having Diplo's tweets come up on my feed one time, I saw that he had happily tweeted someone titled AO-AO. I decided to click on this alleged blog, and my...was it to my fancy. I'm always immediately attracted to anyone and everyone who takes the time to put up music that I'm interested up for the world to hear. The blog is based out of Leeds, England, and who is the blog master? Lewis Wilde. I decided to send Lewis an email to have him review and critique my blog, and we eventually started talking blog talk, we became friends, and he agreed to do an interview for me. I was interested in having an interview because I wanted to get someone who's more familiar with music and mixes to talk with. Lewis is absolutely the most inappropriate Brit I have ever met, but in so which it's almost...charming.

What made you want to start a blog?
--I think it's just useful to share everything you like with other people who like similar stuff. Whether that be on a blog, talking to people, social networking sites, anything! The internet's amazing because you can find whatever you want so quickly because of sites and blogs.

Who works on AO-AO with you, and how do you divide up the posts?
--It's mainly just me who does the posts, but me and my brother (Dean) have very similar tastes/styles in music so sometimes he'll come across something or some new artist and I'll blog it! It works really well. The design of the blog is really simple so there's nothing complicated to do!

How do you decide what goes up on the blog - is it for your taste, or what you THINK other people will like?
--It's totally selfish, everything that I like. I think one of the keys to having a decent blog is keep everything authentic. Don't just blog whatever everyone else is blogging. Whether it be an old Pharrell music video, some sick photography or a new artist I dig, I just blog the best things I come across.

How do you get musicians to send you music for AO-AO?
--I always put out my email address everywhere because everyone wants to find decent new music. A dope Chilean producer called Daniel Klauser sent me a track yesterday and it was amazing! I posted it, and I saw it on Discobelle earlier, which is one of the best blogs around. Artists should send there stuff everywhere I think, the wonder of the internet definately.

Do you DJ/Mix tracks yourself - how do you send them out, and to where?
--For me it's just a hobbie, I love DJ'ing with music I love, loud. Dean usually makes the mixes, like the other month he made a sick 'Gypsy Mix' but we haven't really focused on making any monthly mixes and sending them out. We really should!

How often do you go to shows? Do you try to talk to the artist after? Or are you there only to critique the performance and vibe of the crowd?
--I don't go to as many shows as I'd like, because of money! But the best nights always seem to be the ones where your whiling out with friends to awful, cheesy music! I love seeing DJ's live, with different styles. I saw and met Brodinski a while back in Leeds and he was great, just like one big track! A-Trak and Kissy Sell Out also blew my mind when I saw them, mad talent and energy.

What genre most attracts you? What artists are you most into right now?
--Apart from heavy metal, which I just don't understand, I love everything from old jazz like Chet Baker to Rick Ross to Roska. I don't understand people who shut off to anything they've not heard of. In terms of House and Techno music, artists I really love at the moment are; Homework, Savage Skulls, Art Nouveau, Oliver Twizt, there's too many! I've been really hunting hip-hop recently though.

Who excites you most when they drop something brand new?
--Oh there's a lot. I think the Sound Pellegrino releases are always on point, Made To Play is an amazing label, aswell as DeadFish. There's a big scene in France right now with the likes of Manaré, French Fries, Bambounou and the Club Cheval gang constantly churning out amazing releases.

What do you hope happens with your blog?
--I really don't know actually, a lot has happened through doing it in this past year, a lot of networking, and some great perks. It's something I enjoy doing massively.

What do you want to eventually end up doing with music?
--I'd love to eventually run a music management agency, representing artists and sending them and myself all over the world to play shows. That would be the dream. A toned down Ari Gold maybe.

How did you get into such a deep appreciation for music?
--I listen to music ALL the time, everything, so it's bound to have a massive impact. We weren't playing Grade 20 piano at 7 or anything like that, we both just love to play and listen to anything we love.

What kind of concerts/shows/venues get you the most hyped? Whats your favorite scene to get into?
--There's a few crews in the UK that we're good friends with and they're running amazing parties right now; The Kool Kids Klub and Banana. They have that mentality that it's a party rather than loads of people just facing the DJ, which is the best sort of atmosphere to create at a show I think.

Describe your style.
--Personally? Erm, I never buy any clothes and wear all my brothers old shit to be honest. I think if I ever get any money, I'll buy some cheeky garms, shoes and jackets, but until then I'll stick to these second hand Lacoste tee's that are dripping in swagjuice.

Describe your hair. (which i love)
--Thank you! It's evolved due to a fear of conversation at a hairdressers. You both talk shit to each other and leave unsatisfied because they've normally exposed your massive head, so I thought I'd let it do whatever!

How do you feel about the music scene in America? -----Have you ever been to America? Do you want to come?
I've never been to America, I really want to go, to NYC, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. The music scene is amazing in America, obviously the amount of talented Hip-Hop stars coming out of there is insane. Everywhere has a healthy music scene if you look hard enough I think, even Russia and Bulgaria.

Does Jersey Shore make you want to throw up and never visit our country?
--The opposite. I love Jersey Shore, I only know me and a friend that like it though! They might be mega-greasy but it's one of the most entertaining things on UK TV. You have amazing shows though, like Entourage, How To Make It In America, Eastbound and Down, Curb Your Enthusiasm. There's loads!

Lewis and his brother Dean, who mixes for him. Lewis is the one in the grey oxford with the rad hair who strangely resembles Pete Doherty.

Felix Cartal Fall 2010 Mix

Felix Cartal's Fall 2010 Mix

Style of Eye, Tiga, James Holden OH MY. yayy.

HURTS - Stay

The 90's earring and buttoned up oxford is a win in my book. So is the drop dead gorgeous blonde he's with. I didn't like the song at first, but with a couple more listens it becomes addicting.

Here's one of their songs I had from a year or so ago, I used to be in love with this song. Check ittt.

HURTS - Wonderful Life (Arthur Baker remix)

Beauty and the Beats

Sickest tattoo in the world? yes.

Leather and chiffon. I am in love. especially the length. It's like a badass goddess.

The shoes. Those freaking shoes. I want them.

Spark - Revolving (Warrior One Remix)

I was so confused when this first started playing, because I thought it was Katy B. It sounds just like her. Beautiful voice, fun light dubstep sound, I dig.

Far East Movement - Like a G6 (Disco Fries Remix)

This is probably the guiltiest pleasure for me right now. Well, amongst other things...but songwise, totally. I can't stay still when this beat enters my head.

Foals - One (Swedish House Mafia Cover)

So cool, and you can totally still dance to it.

Bassnecter - WildStyle Method (feat. 40 Love)

Dirty dirty beats.

Samuel feat. Joell Ortiz - I Heart NY

Awh. I get sad. I miss NY. The only reason I wanted to listen to this song was because it feature Joell Ortiz who was in that song that I fell in love with over the summer, Walking On Air by Novel. This song is definitely different from anything I ever put up, but it's worth listening to. It's a feel good song.

Look What I Freaking Found

Thank you forever, Sky Ferreira for showing this to me. This Alanis Morissette. ALANIS MORISETTE. I'm in freaking love. She's by far the most attractive lip singer I've laid eyes on. Totally channeling Paula Abdul with those dance moves. And the black and white part when she's wearing the jeans and leather jacket and cross necklace??? I WANT THAT OUTFIT.

Oh my gosh I just watched it again, TYCE FREAKING DIORIO IS ONE OF THE DANCERS. My life is complete seeing him in a backwards newsies hat and ripped jeans. Thank you gods of the 90's.

Selflessness > Selfishness

Top of the evening to everyone. Last night and this morning I was delivered some news that...if I had any parcel of a heart left, I'd be upset, but since I don't, I don't care. So technically I'm really upset, but then I think about it, and how much BETTER my life is down here, that I can't let myself get upset. Which brings me to another point...
I'm really selfish.
Yeah, extremely shitty things have happened to me in the last couple years, and I don't react in the most...healthy ways possible...but I have it so good. I have GREAT health, minus the anxiety disorder which runs my life, my family is all alive and well, I have AMAZINGGG friends, I have amazing style and music taste....(kidding, but like...I'm not kidding at all)...and I have an education. I take my life so for granted, and it's sad that I'm just now realizing this. I think it's because being here I've met the coolest people ever, and then I get to know them, and they've had it so much worse than I have. And I'm almost embarrassed that I let myself get so upset about things. My life is pretty damn good.
Just because I found out that the boy I would've jumped off a bridge for had been dating another girl at the same time, is a junkie, and basically just a complete waste of life, doesn't really give me a reason to be upset. Like, whatever. I'm a pretty awesome person, hell of a lot better than that piece of shit, and I know I'm going places.
I have to remember how blessed I really am.

Found some random pictures from London. I want to go back. Especially this season.

Swedish House Mafia vs Tinie Tempah Miami 2 Ibiza

On October 30th, the possibly greatest party of my life will occur. And that party would be Swedish House Mafia performing in Miami. Halloween party, only place in the southeast they are performing on their tour, I have to go...right? IM BROKE. I have to find a way to sneak in, there is no way I would miss a musical thrill like this. No way. Maybe I'll dress up as security?

This is the behind the scenes for the video with Tinie Tempah for Miami 2 Ibiza. I want to go to Ibiza. Scratch that, I'm going to Ibiza.

Marina and the Diamonds - Shampain

This is for you, brother. I know how much you love your Marina Diamandis.
She's beautiful, isnt she? And that dress fits her perfectly. The thriller spin off is just the right gothic touch, as well.

I HAVE FOUND GIRLS HERE WHO LOVE HOUSE. Mission semi over, I am now ecstatic, life is almost decent. Speaking of decent, mad decent, I decided to email Diplo about dancing, and he big deal. But like, it is. Ohhh I want him to let me dance for his music!
On another note, Zebra and Snake are playing their first NYC show tomorrow at Piano's! I miss piano's, I have good memories there with my good old friend Brooks Paschal. (Check out his band, The Afterlife Kids, super good.) But I advise everyone in the NYC area to see my boys Zebra and Snake! Crazy Helsinki boys who are rough, raw, and synth magic makers? Good enough for me.

Style of Eye - Antidote

I first heard of SOE because they had some dope Little Boots remix way long ago, then re-brought to my attention by gandering over Beatport, this song is straight illicit. You can only get into trouble listening to this song.

Diplo y Don Diablo - Make You Pop (Hooky Dubstep remix)

DeerHunter - Helicopter (Diplo & Lunice Remix)

Diplo, I have such mixed feelings about you. I hate that you are selling out so hardcore, and reading your tweets kind of makes me want to throw up, however; you are so goodlooking, and your beats are undeniably orgasmic. It's a love hate relationship. More love than hate.

Harry Romero Junior Sanchez Alexander Technique - Where You Are (Steve Angello Edit)

Oh Steve Angello. I can not wait to see Swedish House Mafia in Miami on Oct 30th. ...if i can find the proper funds....

Swedish House Mafia/Laidback Luke Remix - Show Me One

YOUVE GOT TO SHOW ME ONE. Clever, really.

Le Corps de Mince Francoise - Something Golden (ZEBRA AND SNAKE edit)

YOU NEED TO SEE THEM IN NYC! Do it, so worth it.

Kanye West and Bon Iver - Lost in the World

I hate Kanye West. But love Bon Iver. This song is so so cool. Super controversial, super real, super new. Enjoy

Salem - Trapdoor

Can you imagine seeing Salem AND Zebra and Snake together? What a dark, goth like, forbidden show....

Sunday, October 10, 2010

I don't even care that I'm suffocating; I love fall fashion too much right now...

My friend sent me a new website to window browse in, and I'm completely and fully obsessed. Here are some looks I LOVE. I need to get a job so I can shop again.

And...once again, here are some randoms I'm obsessed with from YvanRodic\

Hold On, Let Me Sleep on it Tonight

I've been in this really weird soft charcoal mood lately. The calmer more tranquil songs are the move for me right now.

Phil RetroSpector - Sleepwalking for Hours

My friend showed me this one when we were in the library. It is the most beautiful song to listen to alone, because you become terrified of your mind and the thoughts processed while this song is playing in your head. Really magnificent.

Magnetic Man - Perfect Stranger (Benga Remix)

I love Katy B. And she kills it with her voice in this song. The video for the song was released a couple weeks ago, it's really, really bizarre. Maybe I'll upload it later. I suggest a gander towards it...

White Sea - Mountaineer

WINNER. This song is my song for the week! It is the most beautiful song in the entire library of my itunes right now, and it definitely makes me like...emotional or something. It reminds me to love nature, and life.
How cool is the freaking album cover, also??

Unicorn Kid - Wild Life (Blessings Remix)

Personal Therapy

I just came in from watching an absolutely beautiful sunset. I took my book out with me and finally was able to come up with some pretty cool stream of conscious and a pretty little baby poem. I think I like it here. I'm keeping myself busy with my work, and when play time comes around, I find myself getting into childish scrupulous mischief. I laugh so much. Other than homegirl 1 and 2, I've never had girlfriends who can just chill, listen to house, and be stupid. A good stupid. A needed stupid. A calm and rehabilitating stupid. A healthy stupid. It's something I've needed. I like this peace I've found...

I've realized I need therapy again. After an event at the beach with Aimee occurred, I realized how bad my panic disorder is. I realized how bad my train of thought is, and how easily I let people take control of my mind. I realized how sensitive I am to it, I realized why it occurs, and it makes me so unbelievably angry towards the people who are the reason why I panic. I am so weakened by the thoughts and previous situations that have caused me to be like this. And I hate. I hate. I have so much anger towards people. Rightfully so, but I definitely am trying to find my own therapy without having to go see someone new. I think my meticulous playtime is working out well.

Duck Sauce - Barbra Streisand

Oh my goodness let's see we've got here...A-Trak's killin it in most of the video, then we've got appearances from Santogold, Pharell, Kanye, I mean you can notice Diplo hanging out a window at one point...what is going on, this seems like the place to party. And where the hell is this party? NYC baby. Can't do it any better than that.

Yep, Barbara, Everybody does love DuckSauce. And it's amazing.
