Almost there....signs of spring are coming, and so are the sounds.  Hopefully these tunes will heat it up a little faster.  They're definitely making me want to break out the bbq, and go ghostriding.

Tell me bad ass grasshoppa, whats your persona about this americana?

In the age of blog music, I thought I'd switch it up and butter the duck with mostly mainstream hip-hop and r&b. I heard most of these tracks on the only radio station I'll listen to: Hot97 in NYC. I gotta say that with all the crap out there in this genre, this historical station is better than most with about 2% of airtime being dedicated to solid DJs playing the the few new good shits that come out, and another 2% of airtime for strictly old school nyc-raps. Give it a chance, c'mon. Lemme know what you think.

Devro in India

This post is jacked straight from the Mad Decent Blog. Paul Devro played at Tokyo Thursdays two months ago. This month he's getting himself involved in the politics of globalization in really amazing way. Taking advantage of his creativity and music hes dipping into the politics of development as it pertains to the poor and the possibilities of the music and the internet. Having been to India recently, I can't say how much I'd like to get involved with something like this. Check it out:

Mad Decent Invades India


In the middle of March I’ll be heading to the largest slum in Asia, Dhavari, in Mumbai India. I’ve been invited to the Urban Typhoon redevelopment project along with other doctors, architects, musicians and more in Koliwada. Nestled between two major business districts, the slum is facing major turmoil as global firms are bidding billions on the land as we speak. There are clauses though, such as free 225 foot flats for those who can prove residency since 1995. But for the nearly one million populating the region this likely an impossible dream and by terms of assisting the community, falls very very short. The total strain on society when merging these two very different lifestyles needs to be more examined and thought out too.

Working toilets are rare, so i’m betting that the internet isn’t on every corner but i’ll be trying to keep daily posts while i’m over there and of course posting music from the region. I’m starting up a sort of Heaps Decent program while I’m over there too. Plus we’ll be throwing a major Mad Decent party at the end thanks to the brand new Blue Frog Club. They are do the unheard of by letting 100 Dhavari kids in for free, who would not be able to make it past the bouncers at any ohter club any other night. It’s gonna be a crazy party.
