The Budos Band - Origin of Man Live

These dudes are bad ass, hailing from Staten Island.

Rich Medina and Bobbito Present The Connection, Vol. 1


Download on iTunes here

Rich Medina and Bobbito "Kool Bob Love" Garcia — among many other distinctions — are veteran DJs who've been wooing groove-lovers and setting dancefloors ablaze for years; at home (in Philly and N.Y.C., respectively) and worldwide; individually and, since 1997, together, at their long-running "Happy Feet" parties. True to its title, their first joint release finds the pair delving deep into the well of contemporary, groove-based music from around the globe, often cross-pollinated with funk, soul, jazz, house, hip-hop, and more, but always firmly rooted in African and Latin rhythmic traditions.

Mishka Presents The Death Set's Artificially Sweetened Mixtape

"This mix is so much more than raps and rocks getting jumbled around.  There’s a good melange of everything that would possibly get people pumped.  There’s some salsa, the Zombies, The Jackson 5, some Fugazi, Angry Samoans, The Misfits, Descendents, Waka Flocka, Black Sheep, Cee Lo – you know what, it’s mostly just punk and rap.  But there’s a ton of great mixing in this thing" via the Mishka Bloglin, free download can be found here
