Flashflooder DJ Mix: It’s Always Summer in Partaydelphia

I recently recorded a live electroravedance DJ mix (with a bunch of comedic samples thrown in) and have now posted it on my new flashflooder soundcloud account and flashflooder facebook page. I recorded the mix in Traktor Pro2 using my VCI-100 Arcade and my Midi Fighter Classic.

Lupe Fiasco (legally) rips off Modest Mouse

This is plain ridiculous. I was listening to the radio in the car and heard a song (which I now know to be Lupe Fiasco’s “The Show Goes On”) that immediately sounded familiar, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. And then it clicked. It was Modest Mouse’s super popular single from 2004, “Float On” (of the excellent album Good News for People Who Love Bad News).

At first I thought this was potentially some goof cover song that leaked from the upcoming Big Boi and Modest Mouse collaboration, but then I remembered that Big Boi isn’t apparently doing any rapping in that collaboration, in addition to the fact that the rapper from the song in question sounded nothing like Big Boi.

So, after some quick internet investigation I found Lupe Fiasco’s “The Show Goes On” (off his 2011 album Lasers), which seems to steal/copy the tune of “Float On” and even is as blatant to open the song with a nearly identical guitar riff. Now I’m not an advocate of lawsuits, but if Lupe Fiasco is making any significant amount of money with this song, he should definitely hand a good chunk of it over to Isaac Brock and the Modest Mouse crew…lame. Take a listen for yourself below.

Editor’s Note: I recently found a video of Lupe stating in a video interview that he had no part producing the track and that the sample was indeed apparently cleared and that Modest Mouse gave their personal approval. So it is ok after all, but i’m still not a fan of it. Check out the video below for proof.

Amon Tobin’s ‘ISAM’ Live

Amon Tobin recently released his new album ISAM and in support of it he has set a new precedent for live visual set ups.

Words can’t describe how awesome this is. All I hope is that whoever is working on Daft Punk’s upcoming live set (or so the rumor goes) sees this and realizes that the bar has been set. Check out the videos below for yourself.

And if you’re immediately wondering, “Oh my god! When and where can I see this ridiculousness in person?!?”. Well, check out the current tour dates listed in the tour section of Amon Tobin’s website. This is not something you will want to miss if you have a chance to see it.

EDIT: I recently saw Amon Tobin’s ISAM set live and it was amazing. Check out my post here for videos and more info.
