Check out this excellent track from London producer Deadboy. He takes a Bon Iver sample and turns it into something completely different. Sweet action.

Disco Crunk?

A good friend of The Cassette Deck is one hell of a DJ. She classifies her own music as “Disco/Crunk.” Not sure what that means. Then again, I’m still not sure the definition of “Crunk.”

I think it was a term coined by a shitty rapper called “Lil’ John” who wears a lot of gold a jewels and drinks a lot of “Lean” which is a way for poor urbanites to “get loaded.” It’s a drink that combines regular old cough syrup with sprite/juice and grape jolly ranchers.

Sounds like shit to me, but then again, I’m an upper middle class suburbanite who can afford Jack Daniels and a real glass to drink it out of.

You know what's in my cup...

Regardless, Lauren Blakestad mixes some “crazy good shit” tunes. Check it out.

New Robyn Track

Robyn will be releasing her third album of 2010. It’s impressive enough if an artist can get two albums out…actually one per year. So this outpour of production from the Swedish-born Robyn is staggering.
Check out the first single from Body Talk, Pt. 3 “Indestructible” incidentally the acoustic track from Body Talk, Pt. 2.

New Flying Lotus

Flying Lotus, i.e. multi-instrumentalist producer Steven Ellison, might have cut his teeth making beats for Adult Swim bumps, but the guy has some major producing chops. After two ridiculously good albums in Los Angeles and Cosmogramma Ellison dropped a new EP, Pattern+Grid World today. Here is the single “Kill Your Co-workers”
