Free MP3 of the week - no idea what number
Music: Posted: 16/12/02 12:09 Author: Funkodrom Comments: 4 Comments

Some of you saw Joski last week but I've been meaning to put one of their mp3s up as free mp3 of the week for a while. This is the low bandwidth version of my favourite song from the three they have available from their site. It's called Direction Finding

Free MP3 of the week - yes, another one!
Music: Posted: 25/11/02 11:00 Author: Funkodrom Comments: 7 Comments

This was sent to me by Scabrous Birdseed, and it's quite cool so I used it. Here's what he has to say about it:

I was randomly searching the net earlier this afternoon when I stumbled accross the currently most popular genre in my former homeland of Tanzania, a hip-hop variant called \"Bongo Flava\". Now, frankly most of what I've found is pretty crap, very bad mid-nineties- style jazzy rap in Swahili basically, but one song that was available as a free MP3 download was actually reasonably decent.

Direct Link (~5 Mb): http://www.mzibo.net/muziki/files/C..._SinaMakosa.mp3

Link to page: http://www.mzibo.net/muziki/albums/cooljames.html (It's the topmost link)

Very nice summery vibe, not at all how I like my Hip Hop really, much more laid back, but really cool. Also strikes a reasonable balance between the African and the American, without losing out to either. The chorus is a bit too cliche, but I love the solo and the verses are nice, with good, subtle production.

So there you go. Thanks Scabby! Anyone else with suggestions please PM them to me.

Audioslave album out!

Today if you are in the US, yesterday if you are in the UK. No idea when if you live somewhere else.

Welcome to the death of a once great institution. If you notice to my right is yet another cover featuring The Strokes, behold it's Q-like insipidness. If you'll just pass through here please... Right, here's this week's featured article. It's the writers' \"top 100 singles of all time\". Wow. And it's absolute fucking monkey excrement, written by a bunch of historyless, slackjawed indie fuckers. The number one song alone on the last such list they made in 1987 is worth more than the combined total of the entire top ten here. Awesome, isn't it?

No, please, ma'am, you can't throw up in here. Use the toilet located behind the death of the music press memorial statue.

Is it finally time for Dancehall, aka. The Second Most Dynamic Genre in the World™, to break through into the US market in a big way? At #13 (and climbing) on this week's Billboard Hot 100 lies what as far as I know is the first hardcore, non-westernised Dancehall song to ever climb up the US charts, Sean Paul's excellent "Gimme The Light". Will this (and the inclusion of Bounty Killer and Lady Saw on recent No Doubt hits) open up for a flooding of the american market by real, JA-popular Dancehall artists (rather than second-rate softened-up mushy peas along the lines of Shaggy, Diana Kind and with his latest effort also unfortunately Beenie Man)? Could people like Sizzla and Capleton, with their rootsier messages, and increasingly forward-looking sounds, break through? Go US Record buyers!

This one's been sent in by Sean, OK so it's not exactly an mp3 but it works on my winamp so I'm allowing it.

Free MP3 of the Week #4

Guest Spot!

One of the coolest cult sites ever to be created by a Big Evil Corporation, IT Anthems is a collection of the most cringeworthy, awful pieces of music ever concieved by the brains of the afflicted in Dot-com marketing departments. Ranging from stirring gospel about how all their employees are family members (Honeywell) to a soulful woman dreaming about a dual-processor system (SGI), everything on this page is guaranteed to absolutely bloody awful and most of it is quite funny too. In an embarassing, "The Office" kind of way.

I've picked the one I imagine will reflect the sentiment shared by most people: "Infogrames Rocks My World".
