Jamie(the beatmaker) of heavily lauded The XX, has made a mini mix (5 minutes in length) for the BBC that serves as a nice taster of sorts as to what is on his musical radar. Good stuff here...No tracklist.

File Under Awesome: Santigold to produce new Devo album

(via Perez Hilton) Wow 2010 is popping up fresh! On the heels of her successful "debut", Santigold is making power moves with this rumoured production gig with Devo. Apparently she beat out applicants like Snoop Dogg (?!) and Fatboy Slim for the gig.

Nice look Santi!

"History" Mos Def and talib Kweli (Blackstar)

click on pic to see video

So nice to see Blackstar coming back together, if only for one song (from Mos Def's 2009 album The Ecstatic). Something about this pairing works so well, especially for the sake of Talib who I'm reluctant to listen to when not alongside Mos in Blackstar formation.
