Norah Jones Remixes

chasingpirates

Having just released her latest full-length, The Fall, Grammy Award-winner Norah Jones has unveiled a set of brilliant remixes from a few of her favorite artists and collaborators. In this digital DJ promo, femme fatale Santigold joins forces with Snotty for an intoxicating remix of the bluesy “Chasing Pirates,” while Droogs (a remix collective featuring Beck) takes the track to a druggy downtempo wonderland. A masterful finishing touch on this EP comes courtesy of Beastie Boys’ Adrock and Mike D, with an intergalactic Big Apple remix of “That’s What I Said.” These remixes will be released digitally and on vinyl on January 12, 2010.

VV Brown’s “Miss You”

eus24-003-mfThe lovely Ms. VV Brown does not waste time. While she’s touring internationally, she’s steadily dropping acoustic videos and low-fi recordings on the web. Download her cover of the Rolling Stones’ track, “Miss You” (and turn the volume up!).  If this soul-drenched version of the rock song sounds familiar, you might be remembering the days of Musiq Soulchild and his 2003 album Soulstar. (Revisit Musiq’s version here)

Travelling Like the Light, the upcoming full-length album, will be released in the US on Capitol Records on February 9, 2010.

Gilles Peterson Worldwide 11/30

gilles1_smThere is no special guest on the Gilles show this week, but he still gave us 2 solid hours of great music. In his words, much like the latest Robert Glasper album, Double Booked, this week’s show is split in two, starting with heavy jazz and leading into hip hop and soul.

The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble Pays Tribute

FULL SCREEN
The Sounds of VTech / Hypnotic Brass Ensemble by Mochilla   

The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble teamed up with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson in LA for this live event, which sold out quickly and brought support from artists like Aloe Blacc and Madlib. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson played viola and wrote this arrangement of “Scrabble” specifically for the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. It’s a jazz song by Rene Costy, which inspired Dilla to create one of his best-loved tracks.

The enthusiastic crowd of music lovers that packed their way into the Echoplex for this special show and were not disappointed by the magic they witnessed. Exclusive music, top quality sound, and a stunning performance. Thanks to VTech Music and Mochilla for the video.
