DJ, producer, and FileJerk, Astronomar has been a mainstay of the local scene here in Seattle for a minute. Now it’s time for the rest of the world to get familiar, thanks to Jeffree’s, Mad Decent’s newest underground-centric imprint. I am looking forward to this guy getting some shine, because he definitely deserves it. He’s an awesome dude and his music is the shit. LxNxM cosign %100.
I just got back from a two week long European vacation yesterday, and the jet lag is real. After pulling an all-nighter, I left Amsterdam at 11AM, flew for ten hours in a giant metal tube, and arrived in Seattle at noon (the same day). How’s that for a mindfuck?
After unpacking, starting a load of laundry, and getting a steaming bowl of duck noodle soup from my favorite noodle shop, I fired up the Macbook and started clicking through my favorites to catch up on some blog action. I didn’t make it too far, as I started to pass out about five minutes into it, but I did find this incredibly appropriately titled mix featured on Largeup.com’s Mixtape Mondays from last week.
Montreal’s finest, Ghislain Poirier, comes through with some serious heaters on this mix(tape), which features LxNxM favorites Bonjay, Emvee, Boogat, Spoek Mathambo, Dubbel Dutch, and mucho mas. I’m not sure how this worked out or what the connection is, but the mix was made for Aritizia, a boutique specializing in women’s clothing. Check em out, I guess.
I’d write more about how awesome this mix is, but my brain is still a little melty from traveling through space and time. I think I’m just gonna let this one play on repeat until I start feeling normal again.
Shoutouts to DJ Smutlee for putting out a dancehall mixtape that’s actually worthy of blogging. It’s a been a minute.
The London club DJ, mixtape maker, & blend specialist does what he does best on this 61-minute mix, which features a bunch of new jams, a couple tried a true classics and smattering of original mashups. Smutlee has made quite a name for himself in the moombahton scene lately, but it’s good to see that he’s still as keen on the dancehall as ever. Hope y’all enjoy this one as much as I do. It’s on steady bump. Hit the jump for the massive tracklist.
Following Tang’s lead, here is a sweet little downloadable ditty from that guy Theophilus London. I really dig this RAC (remix artist collective) version over the album version – the bright, poppy keys, and the airy vocals of Sara Q (of Tegan and Sara fame) make this jam remind me of some of that early Paula Abdul – you know like those video-duets with the totally slept on MC Skat Kat.
Summer has finally arrived in Seattle, which, in case you didn’t already know, is cause to celebrate. Who better to provide the soundtrack to this celebration than Mick Boogie and DJ Jazzy Jeff, makers of last years finest summer-themed mixtape, Summertime?
Trust me, you need this for your boombox/ipod dock this summer. It’s a guaranteed good time at your BBQ, pool party or whatever. Download or stream Summertime 2 here.
Here’s some new music from Toronto’s The Weeknd. “Rolling Stone” has that signature drug-induced, minimalist sound that put The Weeknd on the map, but the beat stands apart from most of his other jawns as it relies almost solely on a single accoustic guitar loop. Spoiler Alert: Not unlike
most all of his music, this song is about drugs, sex and more drugs.
If you haven’t already downloaded the House Of Balloons album and listened to it a thousand times on repeat, you should probably do that now.
Download “Rolling Stone” here.
A 2nd generation member of the avant-garde LA collective Project Blowed, Open Mike Eagle reps 1/3 of Thirsty Fish alongside fellow emcees Psychosiz and the notorious GrindTime tested battler Dumbfounded.
Working up a much deserved buzz lately, OME glides with concise wit and a bassy-smooth voice over this dope headnodic beat – production courtesy of Willie Green. Download “Nightmares” here, the first single from OME’s forthcoming Rappers Will Die of Natural Causes.
It’s definitely exciting to hear Hip Hop like this getting recognized in the midst of the swag crusades. OME pays homage well to the unapologetic creative lineage of left coast Hip Hop communities like the Good Life Cafe and Project Blowed.
It’s about time that I hit y’all with a proper dancehall – in this case, bashment – mix. So, since I’m on this British radio kick as of late, I figure why not go straight to the toppa top source of quality bashment in the UK, Gabriel Heatwave.
Expect to hear some new riddims, exclusive material and a few soon-to-be Spring/Summer anthems. We also get a little sneak preview of the upcoming Energy Bashment Mix, which
should be out any day now is out now (download via thehypelifemag).

Here’s a crazy mix from Vancouver, BC’s Blondtron (we see you neighbor to the north!). The track selection is eclectic, to say the least – just how we like our mixes over here at LxNxM. Prince Zimboo makes an appearance here and there, but this is by no means an all-Zimboo-everything mixtape. He’s more like a special guest. So, come for the Zimboo, but stay and enjoy the Spoek Mathambo, Big Freedia, Mr. Lexx, and Aloe Blacc/Wu-Tang and Dougie/Ace of Base mashups, among others. Trust me. It’s well worth 65 minutes of your time.
I found this on the Mad Decent blog, naturally.
