free the universe

will follow up this post with some more maddecent posts; until then I’m freeing the universe.

Since releasing “Get Free (feat. Amber of the Dirty Projectors)”, us jammers have been impatiently waiting for Free the Universe.  The star-studded collabs may save the three out of five star rating I give this album.  I mean, how could Diplo & Switch have topped Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do album?  There is still that heavy Caribbean vibe, but the dancehall gals may have to tweak their twerking to the new riddim…

Noteworthy:

Track List:

1. You’re No Good featuring Santigold, Vybz Kartel, Danielle Haim & Yasmin
2. Jet Blue Jet featuring Leftside, GTA, Razz & Biggy
3. Get Free featuring Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors
4. Jah No Partial featuring Flux Pavilion
5. Wind Up featuring Elephant Man & Opal
6. Scare Me featuring Peaches & Timberlee
7. Jessica featuring Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend
8. Bumaye (Watch Out for This) featuring Busy Signal & Flexican
9. Keep Cool featuring Shaggy & Wynter Gordon
10. Sweat featuring Laidback Luke & Ms. Dynamite
11. Reach for the Stars featuring Wyclef Jean
12. Bubble Butt featuring Bruno Mars, Tyga & Mystic
13. Mashup the Dance featuring the Partysquad & Ward 21

Get it.

slow down

Major props to my sister for forcing me to listen to this guy.  Alex Clare is responsible for the ever so popular dubstep-ish song featured on the newest Microsoft Internet Explorer commercial.  He started out playing the guitar and drums, but when he was hooked up with Diplo & Switch, a new kind of music was made.  He likes to describe his sound as being “in touch with his beloved soul and jazz as well as opening itself up to funk and jungle and punk rock and dubstep.”  It definitely has a lot of dancehall flavor but Clare can still break it down:
