Freestyle, Pop, Videos | Timesflies Tuesday: Summer Girls

Nobody else can spin an old track like Timeflies can.  Week after week they’ve been digging through their itunes vault sampling and remixing some of my favorite childhood/teenage tracks.  This week they bring it way back and cover Lyte Funky Ones’ (LFO) one hit wonder, “Summer Girls”.  The sad truth is that some of you didn’t even know how to read when this fruity pop/rap record ascended up the Billboard charts back in ’99.  Juvenile rhymes and catchy hooks landed LFO with one of the catchiest tracks of the decade.  I will say I loved it back in the day, but Cal’s added free verse makes this much more bearable as a recycled classic.

P.S. How ’bout that concert footage of Timeflies rocking that enormous crowd?  Impressive.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday: Game of Thrones

I don’t get HBO, I’m too poor for that.  I do however know that HBO rarely does wrong when it comes to TV series.  I have yet to immerse myself into the medieval mind frame and become a fan of Game of Thrones.  I was more of a Entourage/How To Make It In America type of guy.  Regardless, everyone I know who watches Game of Thrones speaks as if it’s the best show on premium TV. Apparently Cal and Res are avid fans themselves as they dress in character for this weeks edition of Timeflies Tuesday.  If you’re a newbie to the show and don’t know what Cal’s rapping about, you can still respect the production from Res.

Alternative, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday: Lights Collide

My apologies for the delay on this week’s Timeflies Tuesday.  The whole “Massachusetts state holiday” thing on Marathon Monday hrew me off and I still haven’t settled into my weekly routine.  Running into some technical difficulties on the tour bus, Res and Cal bring us an alternative Timeflies Tuesday, as their original “banger” was lost when the bus’ power suddenly shut off.  Covering Howie Day’s 2004 radio friendly slow jam, “Collide”, Cal adds a bit of autotune to his voice, which I think personally detracts from the purity for a nice mellow track.   Beggars can’t be choosers and lesson #89 in life, “Timeflies never fail.”  Enjoy this baby making jam and get the moon shoes ready for next week’s bangerang-er.


Hip-Hop, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday: Jetplane

Very few people enjoy flying.  Too many restrictions, too expensive, not enough leg room, bag of pretzels is too small, blah blah blah the list goes on.  Utilizing their social Klout, Timeflies drop a video for their fans that will hopefully make it’s way to United Air’s PR desk.  Sampling the famous hit, “Leaving On A Jetplane”, originally composed and made famous by John Denver, Cal raps/sings about their terrible experience at the airport(s) and then proceeds to freestyle about freestyling…really.

With March Madness right around the corner, Cal and Res suit up in their street ball attire and head down to the local courts for a healthy licking from a couple 12 year olds.  They may not be the best basketball players, but Res found the perfect sample and aced the production while Cal provides some “lyricology” for his “bracketology”.  Timeflies has also set up their personal bracket online so be sure to fill one out for your chance at prizes…on the daily!

Diverging from the usual bangin’ production we’ve heard the past several weeks on Timeflies Tuesday, Cal and Res slow it down and share an acoustic version of “Until The Sunrise”, which was originally featured on The Scotch Tape.  This may act as a reminding fans that strings and a pure voice can still make musical magic, as it did in early installments of Timeflies Tuesday.  56k FB fans and counting, jump on the wagon now kids.

P.S. I saw the X Factor will be holding auditions for their second season in the coming spring months.  Anyone else think we should encourage Timeflies to apply for an audition?  Tweet this link at them @Timeflies !

How appropriate for a Fat (Timeflies) Tuesday.  Nah, that’s not a fat joke.  Res samples the shit out of Jamie Foxx & T-Pain’s 2008 smash track, “Blame It” amping up the BPM’s and adding his own signature sound.  Are there any other artists that bring their recording equipment behind the bar and are able to freestyle all about the world’s finest hard beverages?  If there are, show me now.  Timeflies is on tap, enjoy this one people and be sure to check back for more spring tour dates being added daily!
