I hate when artists that we’ve posted tweet at me to post their tracks. In this case, I didn’t mind because CALVO is one of my favorite obscure up and coming producers. He’s a real sicko and makes damn good tracks. CALVO is in the running as one of my favorite artists at the moment. Need more CALVO.

FYI, Review | Dillon Francis’ Merch Table is Possibly the Best Thing on the Internet

Posted by on December 17, 2013

Okay, so for those of you who don’t already know, aside from being one of the most talented, Dillon Francis (AKA DJ Hanzel) is hands down one of the funniest, most creative artists in the industry right now. Whether it’s reenacting scenes from Adam Sandler movies, casually handing out free tacos for DJ awareness, or just making jokes that nobody entirely understands, this guy really does come up with some of the most hilarious (and weirdest) things you’ll see on the internet.

Now, I’m sure many of you saw the (almost uncomfortable) video below of Dillon and 12th planet playing out the scene from “Ghost” where Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore sensually make pottery together:

This clip came up in a conversation I had with a friend the other day, which then prompted us to revisit what other crazy stuff Dillon will do for money. Of course, under the category “Awesome S**t” on his merch website, we found a spectacular collection of things he’ll do for dollars. Some of my favorites include DJing a Bar/Bat Mitzvah for 15k, becoming a vegan for a year for 40k, and joining the US Army for $1,000,000.

Here’s where you come in. I’m pretty sure a lot of us don’t have $40,000 just lying around (unless the Rich Kids of Instagram want to throw down); so if we want one of these things to happen, we’re going to need to work together. I’ve started an online fundraising campaign HERE so that we can do it. In two months we’ll count up how much we have, and buy the best one we can. At the very least, we’ll have him tweet a randomly selected FNT follower. The person who donates most will win a special FNT prize. Let’s go one deeper and get some DJ Awareness going!

Don’t forget to follow Dillon on his different social media outlets – you won’t be disappointed.

After seeing this particular tweet earlier this week, it’s safe to say I am one confused kitten…

It didn’t take much time to come to terms with the fact that Cashmere Cat’s sound is so distinct that there was no way he couldn’t be the man behind Trippy Turtle. Which then lead me to question the true identity of the similar sounding producers Booty Beaver and D-D-DJ Yolo Bear, as well. The signature mattress squeaks and tambourines, the Drake references and remixes, the alliterated names, the “FoFo FaDis” for crying out loud. It suddenly all made sense…

And you know, while I’m still not entirely sure BenZel’s revealing tweet has been verified, nor this theory of my own, I’m not too worried about it anymore anyways because the Norwegian producer, Magnus August Høiberg (under whichever alias he prefers) (or whoever any of these musically-inclined critters actually are) has dropped some faaaantastic tracks this week. And that’s what we’re all here for anyways, right? I’ve bundled them all up for you here below in alphabetical order for your listening pleasure. And in the mean time, I’ll be brainstorming the perfectly catchy anthropomorphic nickname for my alter-egos. Hit me up if you come up with any good ones, your submissions are much appreciated.

Videos | Kanye West – Black Skinhead (Official Video)

Posted by on July 22, 2013


In typical Kanye form, Yeezus’s latest video was released without much warning, about an hour after a tweet regarding the video surfaced. After receiving a leak of the video a couple weeks ago, after a few heads rolled in camp Kanye, the REAL, official video has been released. Obviously the video isn’t able to be embedded, because it’s Kanye, so I will direct you over here to his website to watch it. The video is interesting, artistically cool but not something aesthetically pleasing to my taste. What we expected from the first visuals off critically acclaimed and critically hated album, Yeezus.

Hip-Hop | Jay-Z – Dead Presidents 3

Posted by on July 8, 2013


Jay-Z’s twitter spree came bearing fruit today courtesy of a one @JordanJClemons. The tweet read ”is there a finished version of Dead Presidents 3?”, and among the plethora of gifted replies, Hov said to this one: ”Just or Guru has it I give them Twitter permission to GO”. Hours later Guru resurrects the nearly 5 year old DP3 in full. A gorgeous chain reaction that seeded from the mind of @JordanJClemons. Cool things.

Hip-Hop, Rap, Videos | Sam Lachow – King Lear

Posted by on June 10, 2013

Sam Lachow has been on my radar for quite some time now. The young man has proved himself time and time again with his soulful sound and self-aware rapping. However, “King Lear” is different. Sam goes a few steps deeper with his introspection and really digs in to his life and career as a rapper thus far. Perhaps it was the self-produced instrumental, or the self-directed and edited video? Either way, this song is more personal than much of Sam’s music, a trait that I endlessly respect and enjoy.

Take a gander at “King Lear” above, and be sure to tweet out #kinglear for a chance to win some cool prizes from the young Seattle emcee.
