Gold N’ Fly: 007 masterfully manipulates the music from the classic Nintendo 64
title Goldeneye: 007 to create a work of art that is both nostalgic and contemporary.
Alex puts an innovative twist on the brilliant compositions of Graeme Norgate and Grant Kirkhope,
repurposing their soundtrack for remixes of popular songs by the likes of
Jay-Z, Nas, 50 Cent, Rick Ross, Lil’ Wayne, Drake and Eminem.
The result is a generous serving of high-quality hip-hop,
as well as a veritable trip down memory lane.
This release is for anyone who remembers the thrill of flicking their Nintendo 64’s
power switch and jumping into the world of James Bond with their closest friends."
You have heard Ocarina of Rhyme, haven't you?

This μnłıłĿΞΔ dude,
my friend and yours,
is killing the sludgy aesthetic that all of us
web surfers have grown to love over time like our weird uncles.
I don't know much about him,
and though I could ask him what he's like and his favorite color,
I prefer the mystique that I'm sure he also prefers to be wrapped up in.
In "destinee" all I recognize is Beyonce's "ee-yeah-eh!" from "Say My Name",
but even that is morphed into a cackle bouncing back and forth between your headphone channels.
Bump this shit.
And drop μnłıłĿΞΔ a message on his soundcloud.
Tell him we want more.
I got blog warning so I had to remove the mp3.
Shot in Brooklyn or Queens.
All we have in Halifax is the "Miscellaneous Marching Band"
who roam the streets and suck at their instruments.
My birthday came together really nicely in the end.
No presents but lots of friends.
All that matters, boys and girls.
I love how the guy sings the first verse of this song,
caught me so off guard.
obviously via fader.
(my blog lately just feels like a fader feed)
The great thing about this blog (very) slowly making the rounds is having
the odd person find it that really has something to prove with a voice worth listening to.
Lately, I've been getting emails mainly from indie bands and the like,
which is great, but when I got an email from Kil Ripkin,
I jumped on that usershare link like there was no other choice.
On "Aftermath pt. 1", we're given a taste of an Eric G beat,
one that could contest with anything from Boi-1-da's catalogue.
Once Ripkin goes in, he sounds like Jay Electronica's lost brother,
or the missing member of Wu-Tang.
There's no doubt that this dude has a great balance of raw energy and intelligence on the mic.
The second track I got was "Mind Free",
with some production from Nyce & Don Newkirk,
which lets Ripkin take a breath and get his point across.
Sounds like a thesis on freedom under the government overtop a College Dropout-era Kanye beat.
Both of these tracks are leaks from his upcoming album, The Balancing Act.
If you don't recognize the name,
all the more reason to click the songs and give the man a second of your time.
Although Darwin Deez looks like the ultra, undefeated hipster overlord,
his music deserves any praise it gets and more.
A hipster with actual songwriting abilities, not just masking his songs with shitty cassette-quality recordings.
Feels like a strange thing right now.
Don't listen to these if you're antsy or feeling impatient.
They're slow burners - good for those rising from the dead after 4/20.
how is 4/20 anything?
If you're a pot smoker, it's a day when you can smoke pot.
As opposed to.. any other day.
Whatever your poison may be,
overdose to these songs from vaaes.
While everyone drooled pools for Sigur Ros over the past decade,
