Tonight, Mia Moretti, Caitlin Moe and Midi Mafia for Cosmo. After that, the all new Covet has a Jazz night featuring the group from the Tonight Show, I believe. This Saturday my man Mel Debarge is holding it down with Talib Kweli.
It became immediately clear upon watching this that the hipsters of the early 2000′s run New York. Is that Diplo hanging out a window? Awesome stuff.
No secret I think Sky Ferriera is about the best thing in pop music since sliced bread… Peep this rehearsal vid of her covering Mike Snow’s “Animal”. This would be killer mid-set.
When I first moved to New York a few years back and I was drinking Scotch overlooking the city and running wild in the town with my boy Jimmie, we had Viva La Hova in the Bose ipod speaker set and it was absolutely the perfect soundtrack to ignorantly sophisticated New York living. For those that didn’t gather, this is Jay-Z songs over Coldplay sample based beats by a variety of fresh producers and deejays. Terry Urban and Mick Boogie have released it remastered and without drops, taking it from a mixtape to a concept album of epic proportions, and I don’t say that lightly, I really love this project.

Pics from Inferno. Classy.
Aesop Rock is curating a new site/blog called 900 Bats that provides some interesting visual and audio tidbits. And here’s my favorite Aesop Rock song from age 16 for good measure…
Is it just me, or is album art really on the next level nowadays? And yes, Lil B did drop a spoken word ambient album, produced by him (produced meaning he just pressed pad keys in Garageband) and I won’t force you to sit through a sample, but you should probably cop the limited vinyl pressing just to have a piece of a strange strange time.

LRG Artist Series Artist Driven with Pose | New York from LRG on Vimeo. I’m gonna have to see this… Phil Spector… His Wall of Sound technique. Mick Boogie’s Fashion Week Mixtape with Stylecaster is awesome You can download here. http://www.stylecaster.com/nyfw/ss2011 Lil Wayne’s got a new single and video for his upcoming EP, which he’ll still be locked up for. I heard they shot about 100 green screen videos before he went inside, so they could release material like this forever. If the rumours that they’re dropping the album and doing Madison Square Garden the night he gets out are true I’m gonna be at that concert no matter what.
Arizona, you mean the world to us. Tonight we rocked for thousands of people in Tucson, and people crowdsurfed at the afterparty when I played “Babylon” into “Hey” into that dubstep remix of Dead Prez’s “Hip Hop” This weekends lineup. And then Martini Ranch Sunday, which needs no flyer.
I Look To You from Miami Horror on Vimeo. And the Moon Theory video in case you missed it. Moon Theory from Miami Horror on Vimeo.
The time has come, and we got options for ya. Some notes… If the RSVP is visible on the flyer, go ahead and hit them up. If it is not visible I have removed or censored it in which case hit us up email@example.com and we will provide you with RSVP information, and its up to you to use that to swing entry. We’re all about party crashing, but we’re classy about it. And if all else fails you just hang out at the free Rescue Water station and talk about how you’re “so over Fashion Week” after you caught a private Halston preview or whatever. In no particular order.
