The Rise of MONKEYTOWN and 50 WEAPONS



50 Weapons, run by EDM gurus Modeselektor, has been on the horizon for a while. Its now finally starting to step up with a phatty new release featuring remixes of Modeselektor's gem "Art & Cash", as well as a sweet single from none other than Night Slugs co-founder Bok Bok. Releases 001 and 002 from 50 Weapons were total white labels and still relatively hard to find. The first featured a remix of 50 Cent's "Just a Lil Bit" and the second was a two-sided 12" with tracks from Monkeytown artist Siriusmo and BPitch Control bredren Housemeister. Both were sickness. However you must peep the newness from Monkeytown so as to stay as excited about this stuff as we are. Recently, MDSLKTR's new Monkeytown records released Siriusmo's first full length album "The Plasterer of Love". Now you can be excited for some more upcoming tracks from the likes of SBTRKT, 2562 and Ramadanman to name a few. Here are some tracks from both labels that are worth owning and spinning!

Tes La Rok



No stranger to dancefloor madness and sick dub tunes, Tes La Rok is a worldwide phenomenon. The founder of Noppa Recordings and hailing out of Helsinki, Finland Tes La Rok has made himself famous for throwing down sick, roots-y dub beats (Patois vocal bytes included) with amazing control of dirty, gritty wobble bass lines. On top of that, dude's label has released tracks by the likes of DJG, 12th Planet, Kromestar and Mungo's Hi-Fi. PROPS! Keep watching Noppa for more great releases this fall.

Here are a few tracks I keep on repeat:

Top Cat & Jack Murda - Drunken Master (Tes La Rok Remix)


Mungo's Hi-Fi feat. Brother Culture - Wikidness (Tes La Rok Remix)


Tes La Rok feat. Uncle Sam - Up In The VIP

Siriusmo - Einmal In Der Woche Schreien

King Crimson - Behind the Scenes


Here's a rare, behind-the-scenes documentary on one of the most underrated bands of the last century and one of my personal favorites - King Crimson. Probably a bit too intimidating for their time. No doubt they were ahead of it.





Visit King-Crimson.com to purchase the first in a series of remastered 40th Anniversary CD sets.

King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man


King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King

Noisia - Machine Gun

Hard electro with quite the abstract clip to go with it. What a way to start a Friday.



The single is now available on iTunes with remixes by Amon Tobin, 16 Bit and Spor.

Deadmau5 rocking Noisia @ Foot Locker

Everybody's favorite Mau5, always in action, this time at a Foot Locker in his hometown, Toronto. Here we see him playing Noisia's uberawesome new track "Alpha Centauri" off their newly released album, "Split the Atom". We highly suggest you give these dutch gentlemen a listen if you haven't already (the album is definitely worth a buy). From DnB to Dubstep to Hip Hop to Electro, Noisia seems to have something for everyone - and a lot of it.

Check out their official website at www.noisia.nl




And the original in its entirety:

Noisia - Alpha Centauri
