Loose Links: Madvillain, "Monster" By The Numbers, FELT x Nancy Sinatra
New DOOM and Madlib surfaces, Tokyo Cigar remixes FELT with Nancy, Complex tallies up 'Ye's video recurrences, IgniteMindz is a triple threat, and more.
Hopefully everybody's having a good first week of the year. Ours has been hectic, but we wanted to share some digital goodies with our heads.
HipHopDX are big Madlib fans and big MF DOOM fans. While BORN LIKE THIS was cool in 2009, we really have been looking forward to another Madvillan project. On his recent podcast, Stones Throw Records' founder and CEO Peanutbutter Wolf unveiled some new material from the dynamic, interview-shy duo. GorillaVsBeat.com pulled it to stream.
We love how Murs and Slug always pay tribute to a special lady with their collaborative, and terribly slept-on FELT albums. Deejay/producer Tokyo Cigar jumped in, and paid tribute to FELT with Nancy Sinatra with a new mix. These are amazing, spooky productions from the voice known by fans of RZA, Quentin Tarantino and simply dope '60s music. This is more than just a blend tape, these are really elegant productions that anybody can appreciate. Tokyo Cigar's Bandcamp page has the FELT 3.0: Tribute To Nancy Sinatra mix for stream.
It's great when somebody says, "But who's counting?" Somebody always is. In this case, it's Complex.com, at recurring images, objects, and themes in Kanye West's new video. Great tally, and a seemingly great video.
Shout out to this amazing spread of Pitchfork's Year End List, we wish somebody would do this with ours. Any takers?
As fans of when Large Professor, J-Live and Edan could deejay and emcee at the same time... check out North Carolina's IgniteMindz (frequent commenter on the site) play bass with his toes, keys with his hands, and rap. Pretty impressive, and pretty dope.
