Do you ever wake up from a dream and you find yourself singing a song as you arise? It's been happening a lot to me lately, and there are no complaints. So when we do wake up, we like to share what's got us night grooving.

And of course, all the tunes that are making us move during the day.

Charismatic Bloc Party frontman, Kele Okereke, announced that he'll be releasing a solo dance album, The Boxer. The 10 track project is slated for a UK release through Wichita/Polydor on the June 21. Track list and more info here.

 

Local Natives announced a summer NYC show on Governor's Island. Perfect, in case you missed snagging a ticket for their upcoming sold-out Bowery Ballroom gig in a month. Tickets for the August 7 show go on sale this Friday April 9 here.

 

Snoop Dogg and Cypress Hill sit down and interview each other in the new MySpace feature, Artist on Artist. Check it out here.

 

Kelis hit up the Jimmy Kimmel Show last night and rocked the crowd with a live performance of Acapella. Watch the clip at this link.

 

A new Mr. Vega track hit us like a ton of the raddest bricks ever. Forgoing his signature sound, our pal pumps up the disco beat and has us making moves in the office this morning. Download I'm Crazy Baby for free below.

We're back in the 3 hours of sleep per night mode...also known as "hey beast, get your butt ready for the Austin SXSW radness you're about to dive into this week" functioning state of mind. I am already thoroughly spent, yet 100% excited for the cool to unfurl.

Don't worry...you'll be taken care of throughout my absence. Check out the banner at the top of the page for more info. Also, updates will be provided here...(for lack of another better word) provided I find the time to get my Austin act together.

Had a conversation last week that Lady Gaga is on the fast track to a nervous breakdown or emotional meltdown due to her hectic tour and promo schedule. Lo and behold, the lass suffered a bout of stage exhaustion (?) at her weekend gig in New Zealand. Watch her lethargic performance of Bad Romance, in which the lady lays on the stage and barely makes it through the number. Yikes.


Bloc Party's Kele Okereke has revealed that he will be playing a solo show as part of this year's Ibiza Rocks gig series. The ProdigyFlorence And The MachineDizzee Rascal and The Courteeners are among the other acts set to play shows on the island at the summer fest. More info here.

 

DJ Z-Trip is headlining the Sahara tent (THE dance tent) Saturday night at Coachella, and we've got his mix of Chic's Le Freak ready to pump you up. Grab it a short scroll down.
