I have a new favorite track in the asian massive genre....what I wanna know is how come no one I know and love is creating isht like this! Below is the link to the winner of KK's acidplanet.com Manifest Remix competition.
Now even though I entered a remix too (something I threw together in a few days). I think this track is simply amazing. What I wish I could do!
I generally don't do political blogs on this site but, a family friend of mine received this in their mailbox. This letter makes me think of two things: (1) Either a USPS employee /contractor or (2) a HSBC employee/contractor affixed that sticker because the mailbox is a private one. Now, should my friend file a complaint with either of those major organizations because this is an outright racist act? Interestingly enough, everyone at that address (blocked) is an american citizen.
Has anyone else received such mails from these nameless cowards?
Now I in no way pretend to be on the cutting edge of what is going on in the South Asian music scene but I did want to share this with everyone. For the people who already knew....well now you know again!
INDIAN ROPEMAN IS ON MYSPACE!!!
And yes I admit that initially I wasn't too impressed by his album on Skint but as time has passed the album has grown on me. That, and I think I have realized what he was trying to do with his original album. He was far enough ahead of the curve that it was confusing then but makes complete sense now. If you don't get what I am saying you will, after hearing (and downloading!) the samples on his MySpace page.
All I have to say is.....man I can't wait for what else he's coming up with.
