Why is Icelandic music so special? Is a question asked by, I think, Bang Gang's main guy. He answers that its because most Icelandic bands know that they will only sell 200 copies and therefore don't try to sound like something they're not. This seems right, Bjork has always seemed crazy and wierd, Sigur Ros is also kinda out there and current heat like Steed Lord sound like they dont really care who is buying their shit. In Screaming Masterpiece, we get to see the whole picture of Iceland's music scene. The movie deals with the obvious artists, like Bjork and Sigur Ros, and more obscure artists, like Apparat. It's got a bunch of real dope concert scenes, including some more "classical" Icelandic music. I'm generally not a huge fan of music DVDs, but this one is more like a documentary than just Icelandic concert scenes. Definitely worth buying or seeing if it in any theaters around you. You can buy the dvd here and the soundtrack here on amazon.
Just hit up a record store for this first time in a while (there are none in Grinnell) and came away with a bunch of hot freestyle records. One of the Nu Shooz ones I got is produced by this guy Bruce Forest and I remembered I had this hot Technotronic remix by him, so I figured I'd share it.
Technotronic - Move That Body (Bruce Forest Remix)
Palms Out put up this hot Yo Majesty remix by Chris Bagraider.

I'm a little late on posting this, but you're gonna wanna head over to Mr. Singh's myspace after listening to this mixtape. Real hot mix of go-go bangers, Mr. Singh's own blends and some Wale.
This is quite possibly the hottest club EP ever. Very house sounding Baltimore club, I dont know too much about it, other than who Griff and Booman are. Anyway, here's two smoking tracks off of it.
Selectah Road Runna - Boomy Bomb (Saturday Nite 'Believe' Mix)
Selectah Road Runna - Boomy Bomb (Griff & Boo Doo Dew Remix)
Zoelah got some hot new soca heat.
Zolah - Together Now [alt link]
