♫ Calvin Harris – Feel So Close (TABS Bootleg Remix) / I have a hard time seeing anyone topping  this TABS rework of “Feel So Close”.  This is the kind of remix that puts a fat grin on my face and a wiggle in my hips.

♫ Pendulum – The Island (Madeon remix) / Madeon is a 16 year old producer from France,… a wait, 16?!  Are you F’n kidding???  This kid, ain’t a kid at all.  Dude is a pro.  Props.

[MP3] ALEX WINSTON is a fly chick i’d be stoked to have as a SISTER or a WIFE but definitely not as both

i’m telling you, one wrong move and we’re through

♫ Alex Winston – Sister Wife

My favorite Detroit-based barely-of-legal-drinking-age multi-instrumentalist, Alex Winston, is back with a teaser jam from her Feb 7th mini-album of the same name. Taking an (i’m assuming) tongue-in-cheek take on polygamy, Winston casts herself as a first wife who has to suddenly share her man with a woman who so clearly doesn’t deserve his affections. And just in time for the new/last season of Big Love! If Winston keeps things this loose and fun while maintaining such top-notch production then 2011 should be a big year for her. At least something to console on her nights off.

The Best Songs of 2010 for Shaking Your Ass/Rump/Donk/Moneymaker/What Your Mama Gave You: A New Years Eve Collection

The year comes to a close tomorrow and it’s time to start compiling those “Best Of” lists we all love. What better way to kick things off than with a mega-mix of the year’s best ass-shaking jams. Those tracks that just take a hold and force you to dip that hip, and just in time for New Year’s Eve!

Some are originals, some are remixes, and some are mashups. It’s no means a definitive list nor are the tracks in any sort of ranking. These are the tracks that have gotten my blood pumping all year long and so what better way to celebrate them than letting them ring in the new year! More specific lists coming once the year actually ends!

I’ve broken them down into three parts for easier navigation. If these lists were hot sauces they would Read more

NEW ORIGINAL FRESHNESS

♫ Kanye West – All of the Lights (Ft. John Legend, The-Dream, Ryan Leslie, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, Elly Jackson, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, & Elton John) – Besides all the gems at in Kanye’s GOOD Fridays free mp3 program, this guest-crazy jam from the forthcoming My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy also dropped recently.

[MP3] ALEX WINSTON dated an ANIMAL and used to call him BABY

so you wanna play pretend, but my best friends don’t bring out their claws

♫ Alex Winston – Animal Baby

Alex Winston already won me over with her great covers EP and now this original jam is just cementing the multi-instrumentalist’s talent. The 22 year old Detroit native just dropped her Knocks produced “Choice Notes” single which features two songs that are not “Animal Baby” so you can pick that up after getting into this soulful and groovy kiss off to an ex-lover. Gotta love those “ooooh ooooh”s!
