AraabMuzik Shot After Attempted Robbery

One of the true MPC jedis was shot while fending off an attempted robbery on May 2nd. He’s recovering in the hospital and will still be able to make Electric Daisy Carnival but his scheduled show in Little Neck, NY may not go down. Here’s one of my favorite early proofs that this kid was not to be trifled with from 2010.

EP of the Week: Sierra Leone Remixes

Mt. Eden is one of my absolute favorite artists and almost 2 years after downloading & playing the hell out of their original tracks, they’re finally releasing some of their sick nasty goodness for purchase. Sierra Leone is a gorgeous track that was one of the first that proved that dubsteppy beats could be chilled and lovely in my mind. Saw these cats live at Webster Hall and they did not disappoint in the least. The remixes, from the likes of Araabmuzik and Tommie Sunshine do not disappoint. TaKu adds some fun garage’y beats to round out the EP. Tight, to the point and a great little reminder that Mt. Eden kills it. Can’t wait for their next NYC show.
