Loca Wars: Shakira and Dizzee Rascal vs Oliver Twizt and Maluca

Battle royale in the "oh hey we both named our songs Loca" arena! Well not really, but since these two pieces of heat are getting virally and virtually delivered around the same time, it just makes sense for me to contrive some sort of fake head-to-head butting. What a little shit-stirrer I am!


Loca wars


Shakira and Dizzee Rascal just released the video for the former's new single, Loca, and on October 12, Mad Decent mates, Oliver Twizt and Maluca will release a song of the same name. They so crazy! See what I did there?


So who do you got in this tag team Loca Showca Showdown?

Cobra Krames & DirtyFinger's El Sabor Del Tigeraso EP (Maluca & Jasmine Solano Mixes)

Cumbia riddim fiyah for your Friday afternoon listening pleasures! Sure it may officially be the season named Fall right now, but Cobra Krames and DirtyFinger are laying down some smooth summa steezin' selections with their new El Sabor Del Tigeraso EP. Hitting you with some treats of heat here in Beastonia, we're dosing you with all that good goodness on the real!


Krames dirtyfinger


Grabbing two of Mad Decent's leading ladies, the Bushwick boys rally a riddim worthy of booty bouncing on it's own original accord, but with Maluca and Jasmine Solano lending their El Tigeraso and That's Not It vocals to the base with a beefy bass, we've got 3 cuts of cha-cha-worthy steppin' to get reppin'.


Want in on these slammers? Good, cause you're getting all three for free. S'just how we do!


El Sabor Del Tigeraso EP is the truth, say hey!

Video Recap: Mad Decent's Block Party in NYC

After posting yesterday's full on coverage from this past weekend's Mad Decent Block Party in New York City, I realized that I shot video during the course of the day, but woops, forgot to include the clips in said rundown of the event. 



In turn, here are three videos from the affair: one from Das Racist (featuring Leif) doing Jungle Fever, Bosco Delrey shredding on guitar, and Ricky Blaze getting the girls to go wild for Keep it Goin' Louder.

Recap: Mad Decent's Block Party in NYC

Perfect weather and a swarm of great friends sprinkled with the obligatory tween-to-twenty ratio caliber crowd hit the South Street Seaport for Mad Decent's Block Party in New York City this past Saturday, August 7. And while it wasn't so much as a block of partying, rather a pier-full of the get downs, that didn't stop the sweat from flying, the feet from dancing and a lineup of the label's mates and pals from bringing their own blend of fun in the summer sun.



With a lineup boasting Das Racist, POPO, Eli Escobar, Paul Devro, Maluca, Bosco Delrey and Max Glazer (with special guests Jasmine Solano, Mr. Lexx, Telli, Ricky Blaze and Chelley), there was a nonstop onslaught of freaked out funkiness all afternoon long. While the goings seemed to start slow, Pier 17 eventually became a wave of teaming youngsters, eager to make contact with the artists, as well as crowd surf...nonstop. 


Highlights of the day included the break-dancing grandma, Mr. Lexx's grumbling tiger-purr vocals and performance, as well as high-fiving all of our really good pals who came out and kicked it for a good chunk of the day. Big ups to Mad Decent, Jelly and Diesel for tossing together a wild time.


Full set of pictures from the party can be viewed here.

Diplo to Release Directorial Debut: Favela on Blast

Favela On Blast, the directorial film debut from Mad Decent's main man, Diplo, and his partner Leandro HBL, documents a vibrant and innovative musical subculture that has emerged in Brazil's impoverished slums aka favelas. Well beneath the radar of mainstream society for the last 20 years, they have their own language, style and heroes. 



An Official Selection of SXSW's Film Festival, Favela On Blast was not an easy feat to complete. Between little funding, unfamiliar territories, and broken translations, the filming proved to be hold harsh obstacles for Diplo and Leandro. The obstructions were overcome however, as the film captures the rarely seen stories of MC's, DJ's, dancers, and cultural producers through the filmmakers' eyes, with memorable appearances from funk superstars Deize, Tigrona, Mr. Catra, and Duda Do Borell.


The film will be available digitally and on DVD through Mad Decent on July 20, however, fans will get an early chance to preview the film when it airs on Pitchfork TV's One Week Only starting July 9.


Watch the trailer for Favela On Blast now.

M.I.A. - XXXO (Diplo's Job Theme)

Welcome to the funniest one minute and three seconds you'll experience all day. Captain tongue'n'cheek himself, Diplo, buffered up his pal M.I.A.'s XXXO and let it be a healthy reminder to all of you who may be without work right now.



In all seriousness through, if you can ignore his vocal pleadings, this has all the makings of a really sweet mix. Lullaby-like even.


Get it.
