What is a scene?

A cultural music lesson with White Light

What makes a scene? Today, the internet seems to break all geographical barriers, not making it hard for anybody with a laptop to duplicate what they heard on a website. So does that mean we are left with a totally homogeneous sound that lacks variety? Luckily, I think that locale still determines the type of style and sound. Here are a few quick examples

LA Hip Hop
Take - Horizontal Figuration Tokimonsta Remix by TOKiMONSTA

Erick Rincon is a teenager making this hyped up cumbia called 3ball (tribal). This stuff, I assume, goes nuts at underage house parties in his hometown of Monterey, Mexico.

Machine gun ragga or dirty arab garage is maybe the best way to describe this magic.

Spaced Out Music - Might be a little overwhelming for some...

I love spaced out music but often have a hard time finding the right spot for them in a playlist or mixtape... They usually surface all of the sudden and totally kills my buzz... whats that you say? you know the feeling?!!?

That's why i created a little playlist specifically for these awesome (seriously... they're awesome) tracks. Perfect for long drives, contemplation, day dreams, naps, journaling, reading?, studying, sophisticated parties...

suggested consumption: download all of them, put them on a cd, listen to ever track fully at least 3 times (don't skip) to allow full immersion. Then listen one more time, write me a love letter on facebook or below, and then support the artists.

Friday Post

typically I lead off my Friday posts with some sort of Party James for everyone to groove to over the weekend... Sorry to let all my followers down, but we're taking a slightly different angle on this friday post, cause I'm going to do a little fly fishing this evening! Instead of my usual routine of finding the most radical tunes and getting super pumped up for my suburban partying, I have sourced a couple upbeat folky treasures for your weekend... I'm moving to the country!

Radiolab - my inner nerd

I can't help it but share with you all... Radiolab is the most interesting radio program I've ever encountered, is like mr Toad's wild ride through philosphy and science in an accessible and light-hearted manner... perfectly packaged presented with a distinctive audio production style.

It's like crack for your intellect... hour-long episodes with stories, interviews, and thought experiments approaching broad topics from mulitple angles. The knowlege you learn and stories you hear are seared into your brain out of pure interest and its impossible to forget. really fascinating stuff.

Insanely good content for those that are interested...

Oh yeah, all of their content is available for free through their Itunes podcast channel.

Sleigh Bells

wow... this duo will wake you up with a kick in the teeth!

Sleigh Bells "Infinity Guitars" from Phil Pinto on Vimeo.

Think modern day inverse of the White Stripes with better looking people ... this all feels a little too good to be true... I have a feeling that some marketing guru was behind this.

DeerHunter has been owning my playlists right now. Their new cd came out late september and created quite a stir in the blogosphere with their "helicopter". some of you might be aware of the lead singer's side project, Atlas Sound...

A lush interpretation of an already perfect jam...

Deerhunter - Helicopter (Diplo & Lunice mix) by maddecent
Deerhunter - Helicopter (Diplo & Lunice Remix)

starting off reeeaaaally mellow, maybe we'll work up to something...? Just give it a moment to work its magic, let the sidechain compression (reverbesk) kick build and BOOOOMM! Something completely takes over your ears with this lush tropical jam that combos perfectly with DH's silky smooth vocals.

A little overwhelming for the uninitiated... Its ok. Check out the original and you'll find your place...
