We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris) – Rihanna

13 Sep

Okay forgive me for being late on this one. About a month late, but we’ll just say that this is post that is celebrating the video. It was weird. The other night I heard a Rihanna song. I liked it, so I decided to listen to some more Rihanna songs. It was a very simple development that took place over the course of that one night, and now I really really like Rihanna. Her newest offering, We Found Love features Calvin Harris and is absolutely sure to getcha groovin.

Also, if you like this song, then you should really check out Coldplay’s cover. I think it’s done really well and Chris Martin sounds good with anything:

Read Daft Punk – Alive 2007 clip

8 Sep

It’s been awfully quiet on my blog, but that’s because I’m extremely busy at work until the end of the year at least. Probably my Flickr photos site is my busiest publication at the moment (not that it’s busy ;) ).

Anyhoo, I just had to share this track of the legendary Daft Punk. It’s a mash-up of “Around The World” and “Harder Better Faster Stronger” which they played at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, an 18,000-capacity sports arena in Paris, on June 14th, 2007. They asked the public to bring their digital camera, and tape the concert. The result of the recording is now available as Alive 2007 on double compact disc + dvd.

Here is a YouTube clip with the mash-up. Makes me wanna be there !

Vefslóð á Paris Hilton slær í gegn á WMC – Myndir

7 Sep

Það hefur væntanlega ekki farið framhjá mörgum danstónlistarunendum að WMC hátíðin fór fram nú um helgina í Miami. WMC eða Winter Music Conference er einn af stærri viðburðum danstónlistarheimsins og þá daga sem hún stendur yfir má finna öll stærstu nöfn bransans í Miami borg. Í kringum hátíðina sjálfa, sem er eins konar ráðstefna, eru haldin óteljandi partý og eru line uppin þar vægast sagt rosaleg.

.

Í dag rakst ég síðan á þessa blogfærslu frá Paris Hilton, en hún var í partýi á WMC þar sem Steve Angello var að spila, en hann er þekktastur fyrir að vera meðlimur í Swedish House Mafia sem er pæling sem ég hef ekki enn skilið.

Auðvitað er Paris Hilton “áttu ekki einhverja svona skemmtilega tónlist” týpan sem er oft í slagtogi við gríndansarann sem Kalli fjallaði um í síðustu færslu. “ I like certain techno music, but this was not even danceable and was frankly giving me a migraine”  sagði hún um tónlistina sem Angello var að spila og ákvað að taka málin í sínar hendur. “I asked the DJ if he could please play Daft Punk or Bob Sinclair and he rudely snapped at me and was like ‘I only play this kind of music.”

Restina að sögunni má nálgast hér. Steve Angello póstaði eftirfarandi commenti um atburðin “for someone who claims to make records … dont come into a booth and ask me to play hip hop and then have your doorman slap me”. Hér má svo að lokum finna úttekt Beatportal á herlegheitunum. Annars hefur dansidans almennt ekki mikin áhuga á danstónlistarslúðri, Paris Hilton eða Steve Angello, en þessi saga er eitthvað svo súrealísk og fyndin að rétt er að koma henni á framfæri.

If you had 5 minutes to interview your favorite artist or celebrity, what would you say?

Thanks to Clyde at Inside the Sneakerbox, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime at Art Basel 2010… Not only did I get to MEET my favorite music artist of all time, the legendary DJ, Steve Aoki, I got to INTERVIEW him (and *HUG* him)! It went a little something like this…

THANK YOU, CLYDE! Now all I have to do is convince Steve Aoki to marry me, and I can die a happy woman (No, I don’t usually go for the “asian Jesus-looking type” – in the words of Rio Dienn – but this amazingly talented DJ is something else…)
