2010 Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series Lineup Announced

So much good music news to share today. A lot in the vein of summer concert series lineups being announced, and hey, we're all for that, especially when they come in the form of free and friggin' amazing. The latest set I've got my eye on is the Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series which takes place in Brooklyn.

Ray Mang (featuring Lady Miss Kier) - Bulletproof

There are very few artists that I will simply say YES to no matter what time or what consequence. One is the grand funkatronics of George Clinton; the other, the velvet lined licks of Lady Miss Kier, most notably remembered for her work with Deee-Lite. So to find out that the two are somewhat, kind of, although not really paired together, well we just nod and start writing.

Ray Mang, the alias of UK master-producer, Raj Gupta, stole the basic formula for Clinton's track, Bulletproof. And by formula, I mean he's reworked and refreshed it for modern ears, by lacing a wet and wobbly bass and synth line with the distinct tongue of Kier.


What more can I say about this? Not a lot, because I'm 100% preoccupied with dancing around like a damn fool to this.


Get in on the fun below.
