DnB vs. Church

This is kind of disrespectful, but still worth a look - someone mashed up video of a Baptist Church with audio from a DnB rave, and it really works. No offense intended to any baptists, and I gotta say... your church services are off the chain!

It's a Dog's Life

This time-lapse video of a dog's day is just awesome. Anyone who tells you that humans have it better is just smoking crack. How do dogs stay in shape, anyway?

Reggae Legend David Rodigan

Discovering David "Ram Jam" Rodigan was like a revelation for me - I had heard his voice in countless samples on jungle records, but I never imagined that voice belonged to a white guy. Turns out that "Father Rodigan" was a major force in the rise of reggae music in the UK, and is widely regarded as one of the best reggae DJs in the world. As a DJ for the BBC in the 70s, he traveled to Jamaica to cover the music scene and bring new sounds to the UK, including Bob Marley, Tenor Saw, and countless other greats. He was an ambassador for the music, and artists provided him with 'special' dubplates for his show that often included his name in the vocals. Over the years, he started DJing in soundclashes - a reggae concert where two sound system crews compete for the best audience response. With his arsenal of dubplates he conquered many sound systems, and his style of toasting over the records became legendary. Take a look at the video below to get a little taste - this guy is 100% the real deal, and still going strong.

And now... a Murphy's Law Moment

For those of you who don't know, Murphy's Law is the best live band ever. Rising above the oh-so-serious NY Hardcore scene with wacky lyrics and on-stage hijinks including kegs and bongs, here they are in 1989 performing "Cavity Creeps". Yeah, those Cavity Creeps. Just look at how into it the crowd is... I'll post more soon with some stories from the times I saw them live.

Music for one apartment and six drummers

This is a great short film about 6 percussionists who play the hell out of a small apartment while the owners are away. The music is great and so is the filmmaking.
