Midnight Music: Jack Ü ft. AlunaGeorge – To Ü (Lodent Remix) [Anthem Trap]

Jack U - To U (Lodent Remix)The massive Jack U album continues to spawn dope remixes! This time, we’ve got Lodent knocking it out of the park. A rising bass producer from Chicago kills it on this. The glittering anthem vibe meshes with merciless trap beats. A heavy but almost euphoric mix down allows the original track featuring AlunaGeorge a chance to soar, showcasing this Lodent fella. Quite good work actually, especially for someone new on the scene. I usually can’t stand heavy trap because of the total lack of melody & major chords. Lodent must’ve heard me complaining and proves you can make trap that’s both heavy on chords and doesn’t skimp on the bass. It’s a small gift, especially with the festival season coming, so I hope it works its way into a set or two I hear by the time the summer is out. 

Hilariously Terrible Hard Copy Segment Involving A Dead Trent Reznor, A Retired Cop & The FBI in 1991.

The year is 1991 and Hard Copy’s boner for cops is on display. NIN was a year old and the cops just couldn’t understand why there was video of his dead body that landed in a corn field in Michigan. This is amazing & why the hell was that artistic dramatization paid for? (via Metafilter)

Midnight Music (Mix!): Footwork Jungle Presents Strange Future

To round out your weekend, I’ve got more than 45min of some glorious jungle’y footwork for you. Footwork is a Chigago-spawned genre that has in turn, spawned an entirely new dance craze in the Windy City. Add some delicious old-school jungle to the sound, and there’s a lot of UK + Chicago fast/slow action going on here. The mix is definitely good for both headphones and for jumping around, in case you’ve got a Sunday night Dance Party going down. I got this from one of my super awesome DJ friends, TygerLily, who if you haven’t, you need to check out. She’s wonderful and I have all of the good feelings for her and her amazing taste. Do it up here & see y’all in a few hours 😀
