Tuxedo – “Number One”

Music for… the lovers out there who still express themselves through the art of the mixtape. But this ‘aint no sappy filler track, this is the ‘put that wine down and dance wit me girl’ jam you should be opening side A with. Let her know of the bat you mean serious, sexy business.

Location: West Coast, same as 1/2 of Tuxedo, Los Angeles’ Mayer Hawthorne.

Future: More “slaps & claps” here. The full length album on Stones Throw Records 3.3.15

Coucheron – “Deep End” ft. Eastside & Mayer Hawthorne (Matoma Remix)

Sounds like… I may be kinda obsessed with this jam… Thank goodness the fresh remixes keep coming and I can at least pretend that I’m “diversifying” my “Deep End” portfolio. Thank you Matoma, my push man this week.

Location: My speakers.

Future: More smack, I mean remixes…

Coucheron – “Deep End” ft. Eastside and Mayer Hawthorne

Norway’s Coucheron grabbed my ears with his killer Eye Emma Jedi remix and then I lost track of him. This original jam with guest Mayer Hawthorne is all the things I love in a funky summer jam! Suped up funk beats, weirdo groove noises, and smooth ass vocals. Get into it!

Jaded Incorporated – “Coconut Sofa”

Long time TBE fave Mayer Hawthorne has a new project with longtime DJ collaborator 14kt. Enough said. Time to get sexy and a bit spooky.

The first listen from the upcoming album The Big Knock, out 6/17 on vinyl and digital only.

[VIDEO] Music Video Roundup – 6.29.2013


Boom! Another collection of eye wrinkling weirdness passed off as music videos. You know I don’t like em unless they have some meat in em. I say that metaphorically but two of this weeks videos have meat of some kind… Robin Thicke’s ubiquitous sex jam has an even sexier NSFW unrated video you need to be watching. Plus Wavves has actual animal flesh. Mayer Hawthorne just has actual animals. Acting like people. Story of the Running Wolf has people acting like mythical creatures. And J.views has dancing and levitating. Get weird! Read more

i’ve got my cup and i’m filling it up, i can’t get enough

Hayer Hawthorne has always been smooth. Sexy, even. But he isn’t always so danceable. Bakaboyz sort that right out on this funked up grover. That twisted horn line and bumpy beat are golden.

[REMIX] Mayer Hawthorne – “No Strings” (RAC Remix)

its one o’clock in the morning and you’re buzzing like a honey bee, why you trying to control it when you wanna just come home with me

♫ Mayer Hawthorne – No Strings (RAC Remix)

Two artists known for their laid back, funked up, aural sexiness make for a delicious pairing. Bass bounce!
