Escort - All Through The Night (with Muppets!)

Feeeelin this cute little video of the Rapture remix of All Through The Night by Brooklyn funk band Escort, featuring some of the grooviest bits that the Muppet Show had to offer. Does kids TV work it like this anymore? I sincerely doubt it.

K'Naan - America (feat Mos Def & another dude)

Gilles Peterson played this track by Somalia-born, Canada-based (but don't hold that against him) artist K'Naan a week or so ago, and I've been bumping it pretty regularly since then. It features Mos Def and one other dude who can't really rap, but nevermind. It bumps and is cool and breezy for summertimez!

Janelle & Erykah - Too Much Talent!

Just wanted to post this picture of these two ladies who are some of the biggest talents on the scene right now. Janelle Monae has been grinding as Erykah Badu's opening act on tour. I'm jealous of those who get to peep these shows! Come to Europe, ladies!

RIP Baatin: thanks for everything

Baatin of Slum Village recently passed away. Another huge loss for music. Having been one of the three original members of Slum Village(T3, Baatin, and Jay "Dilla" Dee), the group definitely as a whole but also he alone, influenced so many with his simply amazing unique vocal stylings.
