Welcome to the Eclectic Method, Getting Shit Funky!

Eclectic Method - Rock & Remix 2 from Eclectic Method on Vimeo.

WTF!?! Just watched the excellent Copyright Criminals PBS special and these guys were featured heavily. Jumped online and found their site along with this ridiculous video mix. Go to their blog for the mp3 file and peep the special if you are at all interested in the legality of sampling and the future of music creativity.

RIP J Dilla

Cibelle in: 'Lightworks' from Crammed Discs on Vimeo.

The biggest thing I took from Dilla was to pay attention to all music, to always dig deeper. This is pretty fucking awesome. Too bad the song stops half way through for an interview, oh well. Rock out to this! Shouts out to Potholes in My Blog for hippin me.

Late night videos...

Just some dope things to watch while intoxicated on a Friday night. Cheers.

This could go either way, but I think it has some potential. I'll be keeping my eye out for it.

WIZ KHALIFA - SWEAT BOX from Creative Control on Vimeo.

Wiz has been a little hit or miss for me these days but I like what Dame has going on over at DD172 and this sounds like a hit for the Khalifa man.

Watching young kids in the town become artists is great, it's awesome that Seattle can provide inspiration to people of all ages. I haven't seen these guys rock a show but they look like they know what they are doing, looking forward to catching them.

Jose James

Ever since I was listening to Worldwide religiously in '06 I've always kept my ear out for Jose James. Caught him at Bumbershoot and it was fucking awesome. Hearing that he had a new album dropping and then seeing that Flying Lotus contributed THREE beats convinced me it's an album I need to get familiar with it now, you should to.

New Joy Orbison!!

If you spent much time perusing music websites last year chances are you probably heard the name Joy Orbison. Now maybe it pissed you off cause someone was disrespecting your holier than thou rock legend or maybe you don't fuck with dance music. But I'm not writing to y'all. For those that were digging cuts like "Hyph Mngo", "J. Doe" & "Brkln Clln" you better get over to the Simple Records site and check out the latest batch of jams from Joy! Yet another 12" from a man that seems to be doing everything right with his combination of soulful house meets dubstep beauty.

Stream "The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow" 12" availible February 10th!
