DIOS are PUTTIN IT DOWN, it’s as simple as that.

i’ll be better at kissin’ when my teeth are all missin’

♫ Dios – Puttin It Down

Dios, who for legal reasons go by Dios Malos, just dropped two free songs on Buddyhead’s record label and I have been digging “Puttin It Down.” Dios are one of those bands I have always heard about but never heard their music but this is pretty fresh. Lo-fi, catchy, and great lyrics that somehow seem appropriate for this new year. Their third LP is coming soon on Buddyhead and although I have yet to figure out if they are a band for me I will definitely be rocking this jam for a while.

RITON & PRIMARY 1 have a jam that RADIATES good times so much that it doesn’t matter WHO’S THERE to dance with

see you when the world falls

♫ Riton & Primary 1 – Radiates

We heard Primary 1 team up with The Shoes a few weeks ago but his main collaborator of late has been Riton. They dropped “Who’s There” this summer (as TBE TV followers will know) and “Radiates” just recently came on the scene. I don’t know too much about the men behind these bangers but I do know that these are two beats I would like to hear dropped tonight. I just dig the way Riton does his thang, all those unique sounds and everything a bit elastic and bouncy. And who doesn’t want to belt out “AhhhOOOOOO’s there?” every time it comes up!?

BULLET & SNOWFOX call for an end to BAD DAYS

do do do do do, set it on fire

♫ Bullet & Snowfox – Bad Days

Because what better occasion is there to indulge in some sugar saturated electro pop than New Years Eve. Especially when it’s a song about being done with bad days and moving on. A perfect soundtrack for getting plastered and making fake New Years resolutions! Bullet & Snowfox are from L.A. and are new on the electro blah blah blah…. you don’t have time to reading this! It’s New Years Eve! Just slap it on your playlist and if tomorrow you even remember dancing to it then you can hit up their MySpace. Or just drunk-comment me at some point in the night. I’m down with that.

GAMBLE & BURKE want you to be ISOLATED WITH your lover and doing YOU know what

outstanding, understand me, it’s exactly where i really want to be

♫ Gamble & Burke -Isolated (With You)

I get a crap load of dudes trying to weasel their electro-turds onto TBE with a polite email and a claim to be “a big fan of your blog!” Well, Kaz Gamble came double-correct when he introduced his Boston based Gamble & Burke to me a few weeks ago. His two sentence email was short and to the point but most memorably it opened with a greeting in Polish (TBE is based in Poland). The dude did his research and added that little but of extra care. Oh, and he also attached the fantastic “Isolated” which certainly helped. If you are wondering why Gamble & Burke have slapped their names over a photo of Eddie Murphy and Rick James then you are not listening to the song, and you definitely aren’t watching the video. Do both. And then play this for your special someone.

XUMAN beings need less PANIC and more crazy bass action

just try to keep it inside your brain

♫ Xuman – Panic

Ahhh, the sweetness of it all. Not only does Xuman hail from relative musical backwoods of Moscow, but the dude behind this fresh jam has more in his pocket! I always love it I go to the MySpace of an artist I am writing about and find that they did not just stumble on their music but seem to actually know what they are doing. To quote Xuman’s MySpace:

Xuman makes rock-electronic songs, which are good both for party and for beautiful evenings with girlfriend.

It’s not that often that an artists sums up his vibe so succinctly. Imperfect English aside, I am gonna let that stand as pretty much exactly what I would say about the guy behind one of the sickest bass breakdowns in recent memory. Do it! “Panic” on the dancefloor tomorrow night!

Because sometimes good songs have no place in a post of their own. But mostly, just because I am not down with a jam doesn’t mean you shouldn’t hear it too.

Get caught up with the last tidbits of 2009 after the jump.

GAVIN only has one song but it’s definitely STUCK IN MY HEAD

just strolling through the park after dark with the spark of a love too strong

♫ Gavin – Stuck In My Head

Oh Gavin, you make me smile. Not only for your goofy white-boy fro and small-town-to-big-city story in your bio, but your song is pretty fresh too. And I mean song, cause you only have one. But that’s OK. And eventually you will have more than 9 friends on MySpace. These things take time. I’m just glad you teamed up with that Bolivian (!?) producer and made this sweet jam that kinda makes me wanna light some candles and get sexual. I am really curious as to what will become of you, Gavin. First of all, you are pretty tough to Google and that is not good for a dude with Top 40 aspirations. In the meantime I will definitely be slipping this one into my NYE playlist.

DANGEROUS MUSE are a band I WANT to hear more of, especially if IT sounds at ALL like this

soon you will find out i am obsessed with excessive pleasure

♫ Dangerous Muse – I Want It All

[Track removed :( Warner Bros. does’t like artist promotion.]

New Years Eve is quickly approaching and weather you are going big or going home, it’s time to get our tunes together. Dangerous Muse are some rather dramatic looking NYC dudes who have made at least one jam I am loving. “I Want It All” is one part dancey and one part creepy as hushed vocals breathe over a sick beat and some rather fresh guitar noodling. Dangerous Muse’s debut album comes out next year but apparently these guys have a few other singles under their belt, one even made it to the I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry Soundtrack. Hmmm…. Well anyway, if your new years is going to look anything like that album art then I suggest you get on this jam and start breaking in those leather chaps. Or maybe you just like a sweet electro jam. Who am I to judge? If you are in NYC this NYE then Dangerous Muse will be playing with Fischerspooner. Now that is a party.
