Without notifying her manager or PR, Los Angeles producer TOKiMONSTA dropped this new track off her forthcoming new album Desiderium. Why? Because she’s been having the “most messed up week” and she wanted to “do something positive instead of stay upset”. It makes her happy to “bring other people music that may help them in some way”. You know TOKi? You’re totally right, and it’s your music, on your label. It’s AMAZING music, and I’m glad you dropped this new track, Steal My Attention. As we know from all my other prior features, TOKiMONSTA is incredibly versatile, crossing genre lines with ease on her productions. I can’t help but feel as if she made Steal My Attention for me, as this one’s right up my alley in terms of its future bass and hip hop production. I’ve enjoyed so much of her music in the past, but this one left my jaw agape for that much longer. Her mini-album Desiderium will be out September 23 on Young Art Records.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve turned dark green with envy this week. I’m a huge fan of eccentric, brilliant artist Kate Bush, and, as you should know by now, the elusive, influential songstress made a return to the stage in London with her series of Before The Dawn performances, her first concerts in 35 years (out of but a handful of live appearances). My Facebook feed has been strewn with endless Kate Bush related posts, particularly after she played her first show last night. Artists and bands from all corners of the world have either traveled to London to catch the show or won’t stop talking about her themselves, having been so heavily influenced by her avant-garde style and groundbreaking approach. One of the very first songs that hooked me on to Kate Bush’ artistry is Running Up That Hill, which was also the most successful single of hers in America. I love covers of the tune as well, and there have been many, from Placebo, to the Chromatics, and onwards. Recently featured British synthpop duo Avec Sans offer up one of the latest covers of the timeless song. Stream the pulsing, glistening rendition above.
Sup! heres the video for the song Go that me and blood diamonds wrote :) co directed by me and my brother mac
It’s supposed to be dante’s inferno (abstractly), different layers of hell etc. super visually inspired by like x men, metal gear, dune. haha, maybe thats too all over the place and doesn’t make sense, but yea, enjoy!
also special thanks to everyone in it: blood diamonds, david hayter (for doing the crazy voice @ the beginning), and the dancers (Nicki, natsuki, hana and rey!)
