VIDEO: A Tribe Called Quest – “We The People…”

18 Nov

For all of us who grew up listening to A Tribe Called Quest, last Friday was like winning the lottery with the first new album in 18 years (RIP Phife). How it went down (read it here), the timing, etc. all aligned at the right moment. Don’t believe me? Have you listened to the album?! Plus Pitchfork just gave it a 9.0! Now comes the first music video for the lead single, “We The People…”

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 14 Days – Artist of the Day: Girl Talk

26 May

Two weeks from today Bonnaroo gets under way and what better artist to crank the party up but Girl Talk.  Five albums of mashup and sampling bonanza later, Gregg Gillis is currently one of the most sought after DJs with each show filled with inflatables, toilet paper launchers, balloons and of course, music mayhem.

I remember years ago reading an article about Gillis and learned how he was an engineer by day and DJ by night and without anyone at work knowing, would hop a plane (at times to Europe), play a couple parties and be back in the office Monday morning.  Here’s an article from Pitchfork back in 2007 that may shed some light on the beginnings of Girl Talk.  Besides liking the music, I thought his story was incredibly intriguing.

Sure to be one of the most anticipated late night sets of the festival, straight from String Cheese it will be to see Girl Talk.
