For your Wednesday ear perusal, we've got the first track from the new Heartsrevolution mixtape. It's called I.D. (Investigate Discovery) and is a good taster of what the band has been up to during their hush hush hiatus.
PS: apparently, Heartsrevolution are being managed by Kanye West's manager now, so whatever that's worth... cool. And the mixtape sounds like it is going to be awesome, per the sampler below.
“From the people who brought you The Lion King, Graceland, The World Cup, Humanity and Bono and also that random one... what was it called? Warm Arm Of South Africa? Warm Heart Of Africa?. ANYWAYS! This year Mothers Day becomes SUPER MOM day!” Prepare for the epic FREE download... THE VERY BEST- SUPER MOM MIXTAPE!

Together with the superior skills and thrills of buddy sites, I'm Flashy and Pigeons and Planes, I'm super jazzmatazzed to reveal our tri-hosting of the brand new mixtape from a Beaston-fave in Rai Knight. You want the goods? Cause you're gonna get 'em!
With a little funk and a lot of soul, Rai returns to Beastonia with a 7-cut offer that's available on the fre and it's something we suggest you get in on now. Having already revealed her Black Milk cover of Without U, the track anchors the short and super stellar Self-Portrait mixtape that showcases a skill set we've been heralding for some time. Grab it in full, here.

You know, last year, we were really jazzed on Kid Sister's debut album, Ultraviolet, and while it hasn't gotten a lot of Beastonic play in recent months, we can however, switch gears, and get 'eared up on a new mixtape that she's dropped for free. Oh, you go, grrrrrll.
Kiss Kiss Kiss is out now on Fool's Gold Records, Nick Catchdubs is on the DJ mixin' duties, and you can snag the set for the simple cost of an email address here.
Listen to this while getting your pro nails did. Or just whenever you want.
Approval of a beastly nature.

In lieu of his upcoming sophomore album, Return to Paradise, Australian pop artist Sam Sparro decided to unleash a new and free EP for all ears to hear. And whilst this all happened prior to the turn into the new year, we're slightly behind on the good stuff here in Beastonia, but that makes it no less rad. No, in fact, we're appreciating it even more now that the initial "zomg wow and how" factors have worn off on everyone else, and we can reveal how much our beastly little body is so affected by the sounds coming forth.
In July of 2010, Sparro stopped by East Village Radio's Accidental Rhythm, with my pal Jason Eldredge on hosting duties, and he debuted new song Pink Cloud. The mostly instrumental jam is a nice slice of throwback lounge house and is an exciting new turn in sound from the musician.
Now, he's offering up the Pink Cloud EP for free, which features the song of the same name, subsequent remixes by Julian Brody, Nguzunguzu and Saint Le Roq, as well as the b-side, You's a Nasty.
I'd be remiss and sorely mistaken if I didn't admit that this EP has been on more often than not over the course of the past week. And I don't see that changing any time soon. You can join me on this epic musical quest by downloading the release for the cost of naught, over on Sparro's site, or check out the video to the title track... OR watch the video below. The choice is yours... and every answer is oh so right.
ZOOOOHHHHH MAN! Once again, Baron Von Luxxury encapsulates the year that was and tosses a ton of my favorite tracks into one seamless mixtape. Last year, he did it with 2009 Was an OK Year, and this time, it's Baron Von Luxxury Loved Me for an Hour and a Minute in 2010. Consider my ears BANGED!

You have nothing better to do on Thursday night. I'm making that a firm full-on fact right now, because you will instead, be present at the Free Williamsburg holiday party. It's got some backing love from SPIN Magazine as well as Newcastle Brown Ale. Our buddies The Hundred in the Hands are performing, and my grrrrll Whitney Fierce and I will be tag teaming on the 1's. And the 2's. Or on my laptop. So, you know... it's free, and rad, and you should probably go.
Let's not beat around the proverbial bush here. I have two slices of awesome to toss your way: one which could culminate in a tangibly titillating item, and the other, well, it's just another silly cochlear pleasure from yours truly. Monetary markdowns and mixtapes... it's a rad thing!
Dudes, giving someone a laptop for Christmas (only 10 shopping days left!) is a pretty sweet way to say ILU IRL, so if you're gonna do so, why not make it one in the HP ENVY series. If my own raves about the machine aren't enough to convince you, see what my pals like Jeff, Nora and Brad think of the device. Or, OR...on top of all that, how's about I just knock off $100 on the price of any notebook in the series, cause I'm about to do just that.
All you gotta do is start shopping at HPDirect.com. When you're ready to check out, use code NBEY69354 to save 100 big ones on your purchase (offer valid for the first 50 redeemers only).
And how's about a little inspirational music to listen to whilst you're doing that online navigating for new techy tidbits. Well, I suppose I'd hardly call it motivational, but you may get a good chuckle out of this insanely thematic minimix I threw together. Track listing, then play it .... uhnnn yeah!

Well, well, well...what have we here? Yes, my rad little fingers and brain and body have all joined forces to concoct a new mixtape for you. And yes, as mentioned in a previous post, this was done solely using that "one thing" I keep going on and on about.

SHOCK-WOO!, wee and wow! Those nefariously ridiculous (and might I add, rad) party starters, Tayisha Busay, have been selling the shit out of their debut EP, to the point where they've got no hard copies to dish out anymore. So in the glittery spirit of the holiday season, they're tossing it up on bandcamp for free download throughout the course of the month.
You should probably play WTF You Doin in My Mouth at your Hanukkah kick off meal tonight, right?
