Ch-Check It Out

Have I got some treats for you today! Firstly though, reading the Slutty Fringe blog yesterday reminded me to tell you all bout something. Some will know already, but others need to know… Rappers Delight Club y’all! They’re a bunch of elementary school children from Maryland, USA. The kids are aged 5 to 12 and rap their little hearts out under the tutelage of a high school teacher. You have to check out their MySpace page, add them to your friends and then leave a comment – apparently the kids go wild when they hear that another comment has been left. So, get those tracks checked on the MySpace page and download First Ladies Anthem from Slutty Fringe.

Also, Stones Throw and Adult Swim have announced Chrome Children, a CD and DVD due out 3rd October. They say… “The CD: music from Madvillain, J Dilla, Madlib, and many others – this will also be released on 2/LP. The DVD: a full-length live hip hop show headlined by MF DOOM and Madlib. The concert was filmed at this year’s SXSW in a tent. That’s how we do it. Filmed & edited by the Adult Swim crew.” Full details can be found on the website. Oh and also on that site you can download a Peanut Butter Wolf Chrome mix…

This download is totally free and must be listened to on your computer or ipod after downloading. This download link will be up until it’s taken down by Stones Throw.

So, those treats I promised, well first one is a track featured on the film Lost In Translation, and then also a remix of that said track. You might have heard of this guy before; Sebastien Tellier. His track La Ritournelle is just unreal. From the very first time I heard it on his MySpace page, I was like… whoah. The original version is over seven minutes long and pure class. Funk drums, emotional piano, atmospheric strings, then your reward for patience shown… the vocals – complete composition, more than satisfied…

I also have a Mr Dan remix of that track. Much shorter, and no doubt more radio-play friendly – but Mr Dan has beefed the track up a little bit. Nothing will ever beat the original, but Mr Dan’s remix is still definitely worth checking out…

This guy is still a total enigma to me at the moment. All I know is that this track was in Lost In Translation and Sebastien is good friends with the director of that film; Sofia Coppola. Needless to say I shall be scouring the earth for more Sebastien Tellier music. Be sure to check out his MySpace page.

On to your next treat for this fine Saturday. Know an alternative pop artist from Sweden called Jenny Wilson? Well you do now. Watch this amazing video for her track Let My Shoes Lead Me Forward here. Instantly love the track? Of course you do, here you go…

Jenny is also good friends with compatriots The Knife, and as such they’ve actually done their own remix of this track – I prefer the original, but it’s a good remix in a typical Knifey vein, get it checked…

Jenny shot to fame in Sweden last year with the album Love and Youth, which she actually produced and played all the instruments on herself. Check out a few other tracks on her MySpace page.

Don’t I just spoil you lot?!

    Funny you mention Tellier I got two mp3s a month ago I reckon, the Jim Noir remix is even better than the original if you can imagine. Thanks for the Jenny Wilson, I’ve been meaning to check her out since January. What, it happens.

    I’m trying to imagine something better than the original version of La Ritournelle, but I just cant see it. Guess I’ll have to listen for myself!
