Diplo Interview

Diplo is another one of my favorite DJs.  Originally from Florida, he has spent a great deal of time in South America, and has worked to globalize the Baile Funk sound.  He is currently based in Philadelphia where he runs the Mad Decent label and the Hollertronix Music Collective.

Chacarron

During the songwriting process, it is common to record a ‘scratch’ vocal track in which you are just getting out the melody for the lyrics you are working on.  That is really the only explanation I can come up for this video’s existence.

Learn to navigate by the Stars

I found this a long time ago, and was reminded of how cool it was the other night when when I was at the beach (far enough away from LA city lights to actually see stars).  This takes like 10 mins to go through but is pretty sweet.

Narc-ass turtle bitch

Some pot dealer got busted when a goddamn GPS-equipped turtle wandered into his grow field.  What the fuck is that about.  It reminds me of that scene from Fifth Element where Tricky sends a cockroach with a video camera to stake those fools out.

 

In other news I havent posted shit all week since it was my birthday and I’ve been drunk/at the beach/drunk at the beach.  My other two cohorts are in bloody Thailand for the next month while I remain here locked in the studio; I’ll try my best to find some funny shit to post.  Until then put down your laptop and go do something constructive with your time, like buying me this, or one of these, or sending me here.

Thank You Kindly,

UB
