Introducing: Rogue Vogue

Ooh la la on the super side project tip, in which we find n00bs Rogue Vogue riding the rad wave here in Beastonia, as a production team taking it back to their Chicago funk house roots. Secrets secrets are no fun... but they sure sound good when they come in the form of these two free tracks.




First up is an edit of Roy Ayers' Everybody Loves the Sunshine. My life, my life, my life... my goodness this sounds fantastic. Then, we're treated to a spin on Seals & Crofts' Summer Breeze


Pure pleasures.

The 2 Bears - Bear Hug (new video!)

One of the better most bestest EP's you're gonna listen to this year is The 2 Bears' Bear Hug EP, out now on Southern Fried Records. And hey, the new video for the title track it out as of now and she's a rad one. Buy it and peep it and love love love it. I WANNA DO "THE BEAR HUG"!






mp3: Metronomy - The Bay (2 Bears Remix)



Azari & III - Manic (new single!)




Beaston-faves, Azari & III, have announced their latest single, Manic, which will come with a host of remixes from the likes of DJ Sneak and Tiger & Woods. Former Bang Gang member Finger Prince and rising Double Denim act Christian Aids have also been called on to remix the track. Manic will be released on July 24. RAD!

Metronomy - The Bay (new video!)

Oye! This band, this song and oh man, this video. Metronomy have a rather pleasant effort with their latest album, The English Riviera, specifically and moreso and heretofor, the single, The Bay. Slices of funked out guitar riffs intertwine with falsetto vocals for a trip down "memories you didn't know you had" lane. Meaning... I've wanted this sort of summer forever, not sure that I've ever had it, but will strive to now, so long as I've got this pretty lil' cut soundtracking the journey. New video... now!




PSST! The Erol Alkan rework, as expected, is 9+ minutes of beautiful brilliance. If you haven't heard it already you are either deaf or no friend of mine. In which case, I apologize for my rudeness in the first instance and feel sorry for yours in the latter.

Sneaky Sound System - We Love

Sneaky Sound System are back with their new single, We Love, ahead of the release of their third long player, From Here To Anywhere, out late August on Modular.




The video is chock full of sexy playful innuendos (the beads!!) and remixes will come courtesy of Pleasurekraft, Aston Shuffle and Bart B More. Heard 'em all and they ALL super rad. Single is out now on iTunes. Get it!

Introducing: The KDMS

The KDMS is Kathy Diamond and Maximilian Skiba. Tonight is their latest single on Gomma, in which the full album will be out in 2012. The listenings will NOT stop in Beastonia. The Box Codax remix is phenomenal. Viva la KDMS. Viva viva viva. (ps: BUTTS in the video)

Robyn - Call Your Girlfriend (new video!)

Right as this video started, I thought to msyelf, "Hmm, I wonder what Robyn's gonna do when that nifty beat drop hits around the :28 mark of Call Your Girlfriend?", and ol' homegirl does not disappoint. Also, she ensures that I will, from here on out, only dance like so all summer long. Really emotional and very personal. It's all very "Billy Elliott meets Napoleon Dynamite", AKA, super rad.






mp3: Rye Rye (ft Robyn) - Never Will Be Mine
