The Very Best: Amplified (behind the band video!)

These lads had my be[a]st album of 2009 and now we get to learn a little more about what makes them tick and what makes them ever so slick. It's The Very Best, and yep, they are darn good. Real good.



The modestly-named The Very Best talk to Jessica Suarez in ABC's latest webisode series, Amplified. They chat about their delicious mix of African music and electro-beats and also jump in on a great back story. Best details: lead singer used to work in a junk shop and is one of ten children.


Watch it now!

Angelique Kidjo - Move On Up (Radioclit Remix)

Since this may be a new beast to introduce to you, first, we share a bit of background info to educate. Angelique Kidjo is a Grammy Award-winning African singer-songwriter and activist, noted for her diverse musical influences and creative music videos. With a career spanning 20+ years, Kidjo is an influential staple of traditional rhythms and tones, all of which can be heard on her upcoming album, Oyo.



Kidjo went back to her musical roots and inspirations for this album, which is a collection of original songs combined with covers of classics. The first single off of the album, Move On Up, is a passionate cover of Curtis Mayfield’s 1970 hit featuring Bono and John Legend. Originally recorded with only Legend, the song has now been remixed by the production team Radioclit from The Very Best.


If you'll recall my favorite album of last year, then you'll know that this song and remix fall right in line with everything I wanna love up on. Great way to start your day, mmhmmm.
