Kelis – “Milkshake” (Back Talk Remix) // Vasilis Avramidis

Hide your kids! Hide your wife! Electro is back in town courtesy of this weird new LA/Seattle duo Back Talk who have just thrown Kelis’ “Milkshake” on the ground of a booze-stained dance floor circa 2008. If you remember those years fondly then push that strobe light to the max and keep this on repeat all weekend! (Anyone in LA should catch them at tomorrow at The Echoplex!)

[PLAYLIST] The Best COVER SONGS of 2012

TBE-Best-of-2012-Covers

Cover songs are still my favorite way for emerging bands to put their own sound on a hit song and get easy attention. However 2012 was for some reason a slow year for cover songs. Luckily a handful of bands did them well and left us with flipped and twisted takes on old classics and net hits alike. Here are my 10 favorites (#1 at the bottom). What did I miss? Read more

[STREAM] Skream – “Copy Cat” ft. Kelis

Skream Kelis COPY-CAT

i’m such a fan of your hair, that’s why i cut it

The track info say’s “Copy Cat” is Skream’s, the album art says Kelis’. Either way it’s an unlikely combination that puts both artists outside what they are known for and the end result is pretty undeniable. There is no milkshake motion or dubby crunch but the minimal blip bloop production hangs in the air like a fog, only being wafted aside by Kelis’ hushed vocals. I could definitely get behind more collaborations like this.

[MP3] ANR – “Millionaire” (Kelis w/ Andre 3000 Cover)

where there is cheese there are rats, where ever there are rats there are cats, where ever there are cats there are dogs, if you got the dogs you got bitches, bitches always out to put their paws up on your riches 

♫ ANR – Millionaire (Kelis cover)

Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean that the giving spirit doesn’t live on! TBE alums ANR dished out a 2-song gift over holidays and while their cover of “Little Drummer Boy” may have to wait a few months to dip into rotation, their take on Kelis & Andre 3000’s “Millionaire” is something else. There is weight here. Not many of us can identify with the pain of being rich but now we can know what it sounds like. And who doesn’t want to hear Andree 3000’s verses slowed to an easily followable speed? Plus they take on a whole different feel when they are sung with more heavy emotion. Well played, ANR.

Ahhh the wonders of summer.  A time for great tunes, butterflies, unicorns, puppies, summer flings, confetti birthday cakes, cookies and all your favorite things.
