hot love dolphin

popular, hot and verkifftI’ve been to a Hot Chip concert on Wednesday, where I got this totally verkiffte button. It was super. They rocked the house and their live beats are phatt, eh fat. Check them out while they are on tour.

Courtney Love heads back into the studio and says: “A lot of times rockers are trying to be cool so much they forget that the fundamental job is to be as vulnerable as possible. Really good comedians are sometimes more rock ‘n’ roll than rock ‘n’ rollers.”

What I forgot to tell you about Cuba. I touched a dolphin and it reminded me of washing a very ripe and soft eggplant. The circumstances leading to the touchy touchy are a bit embarrasing, so I can’t reveal them. But it involed me, sitting on a catamaran with an open bar together with lots of people who stayed at a tourist resort hotel thing. The glamour of it all!

Postcards from Havana

Back in Toronto from our little Cuba holiday.

I love the Havana street life. To cool me off from all the hot guys, we drove around with Coco movil. But then, the drivers were hot, too. There was no escape.

First picture taken from the balcony of Casa Aurora (that’s where we stayed in Havana), overlooking Plaza del Cristo and the Capitolo Nacional.
Third picture taken at the Museo de los Orishas. More on Santeria.

Almost Spring Charts

  1. Kerri Chandler – Halleluhjah (Kaoz Club Mix) – King Street
    Found this mid 90ties classic at a used record store. I was instantly blown away by the beats and lyrics.
  2. Jam & Spoon feat. Plavka – Right In The Night (MK Mix) – Epic
    More 90ties stuff. Back then, I collected MK, but wasn’t aware of the Jam & Spoon remix. The song is a guilty pleasure for me, as I was always afraid to admit my love. The remix is classic Marc Kinchen, who is a cutie too. You may know his worldwide hit by the Nightcrawlers – Push The Feeling On (listen at Hope he comes back to house music.
  3. Hot Chip – Over And Over (Justus Köhncke”™s Baking Horse Club Mix) – EMI UK
    Now that the mix has finally been released (with a different name, though) I had to put it on my charts a second time. It is so good. The Hot Chip tour will be hitting Toronto on March 15th.
  4. Kerri Chandler – So Let the Wind Come (Remix) – Nitegrooves (no. 246)
    A new Kerri record with a straight beat. Good for learning how to beat mix if you ask me.
  5. Fonda Rae – Over Like a Fat Rat – Vanguard Records
    You know I love this one.
  6. Flat Pack – Sweet Child Of Mine (Mylo Club Mix) – Breastfed Recordings
    Wonderful electro cover of Guns’n’Roses.
  7. Tiga – Good As Gold (Morgan Geist Monophonic Mix) – PIAS
  8. Rihanna – S.O.S. (Rescue Me) – DefJam
    Sounds like a mash-up. This is going to be a hit. For sure. Not only because of the Tainted Love sample. Stream available at her website.
  9. Felix (Arthur Russell & Nicky Siano) – Tigerstripes – Sleeping Bag Records
  10. Prince – Black Sweat – Universal/NPG
  11. Romanthony – Falling From Grace (Murk Main Mix) – Azuli
    Even more 90ties. I love Romanthony and the Murk boys. Again, didn’t get the remix back then, here it is available as a mp3 download. The original version is fabulous too. The whole Azuli backcatalog seems to be up for download at juno, btw.

Limited mp3: Jam & Spoon – Right In The Night (MK Mix)
Buy: CA / DE
