New Release: DJ Rob Swift – ‘Roc For Raida’ Mix

 

Yesterday, a very special collection of defining songs and DJ battle routines of the late Roc Raida were released by DJ Rob Swift. The compilation also includes some unreleased tracks, original “scratch/beat juggle compositions” that Rob has dedicated to Raida, and thought to be lost interview archives.

Rob Swift notes, “It’s not about me this year. It’s about Raida, his wife Tye and their 3 kids (Tia, Nyra and Asia). Proceeds from the mixtape sales will be donated to Raida’s family.”

You can hear a snippet of the mix on Soundcloud. Please support!

New Tracks: Machinedrum – New Beats Teaser

 

Powerhouse producer Machinedrum goes in on this teaser of upcoming 2012 beats. Eleven minutes of electronic ear loving to the max; starting off like the soundtrack to an epic love saga with its sweeping sounds, the mix moves through downtempo dance, drum and bass, and a myriad of other electro experiments before closing out with a tune that sounds like it could be part of an action scene from The Matrix .

Video: Spank Rock – “Car Song” ft. Santigold

 

An absolutely precious Santigold accompanies Spank Rock on the track and video for “Car Song.” These two are owning with their swanky attire and too cool for school nonchalance. Ready yourself for some NSFW shenanigans towards the end, though – let’s just say: two nekkid blondes and some blue body paint, yeah?

Not sure what any of this has to do with ‘keys to a car’ but seriously – who cares, guys?! Gold foil showers and body paint for life!
