the 317 crew!
First off today we have a serious track from once posted Erobique. Posted on March 27th Ripped on Reality, Erobique had made his first appearance on 317. Anyways I have come across another track from the depths of Hamburg that I would like to share with the winter north. This tune had got a great club vibe, thick bass, simple percussion, catchy guitar licks, and little vocals. Erobique’s Grevenlove gets me going. Uplifting, groovy, smooth, a great morning tune on your walk to work or class, please enjoy this sure to be club fav as much as I do.
I got a couple of heavy hitters to throw down as well this evening, aggressive and trendy these tracks are bangers. First up we got a fresh group by the name of Blacklight Flashlight. These remix of Midfield Generals’ track Disco Sirens is a banger. Not too much to say about this bad boy, but check out some of the other tunes, these brothers from Columbus know how to groove.
Next we have an oddly name group by the name of Tits & Clits. Their track Aggressive is exactly that. From their MySpace page these guys seem kind of wild. I haven’t really checked out much of their other stuff which is posted but I will in the near future. Enjoy this one it really gets me going. I don't know to much about the Budapest scene, but it seems decent if junk like this is come out there.
Got a sweet Lorenz Rhodes club mix ... nothing to say about this guy ... never heard of him before but this mix gets me going. some smooth shit right here. Just a bonus.
Freak Folk and Mustache Jokes.
Well it has been a little while since my last post, a combination of the fine weather and school work have strayed me away for my information super highway commitments. Anyways I am back and have a few tracks as well as some interesting news tidbits to post in reaction.
I know this isn’t really 317 bag when it comes to posts, but I thought this was interesting and may effect of the readers so I went and posted. This article is from Tiny Mix Tapes, a great site for music news of the sort. Check them out, give this a read especially if you buy music online.
China renewed its charm offensive on TMT readers this week with an audacious hacking of iTunes’ gift certificate algorithm. These upstanding Chinese citizens are now selling $200 gift cards on Taobao, a Chinese equivalent to eBay, for as little as $2.60. Using the site’s instant messaging platform, the buyer receives a gift voucher code from the seller that can then be used to redeem the card from a user’s iTunes account. The cards are also available in the U.S for around $43 on eBay.
The hacker’s craft is so brilliant that not only have they given Apple a fine kick in the teeth, but they’ve also posed a frustrating conundrum for those good-for-nothing capitalists. If Apple decides to change the gift voucher code generation algorithm, all of the cards available right now would become obsolete. Consequently, the only ones making money at this moment in time are the code sellers and the artists who still get paid when their music is downloaded from iTunes.
It’s been only a week since the Chinese government’s commendable decision to ban Oasis from playing dates in Shanghai and Beijing in April (TMT News) and now this ingenious nation delivers another slap in the face to shameless profiteers. Who ever said quasi-Communism doesn’t work?
Comrade Obama, start taking notes.

I want to show BEAT ELECTRIC some love. The continuity they have in posting quality tracks is unreal, keep up the good work. Copped this tune from them, and haven’t stopped listening to it at all. Just a slow burner with some real soul in it, Gwen McCrae really gets me going, please enjoy this badass tune. I had just finished watching Jackie Brown when I came across the bad boy and it would have fit perfectly into the sound track, but I digress.
Moving on, I have been a huge fan of Devendra Banhart and the entirety of the “Freak Folk” revolution for quite some time now. I saw Devendra in Sept 2007 in Montreal and the show was unreal, he ran way over his time limit, played great alternative renditions of his album tracks, and simply, he was a showman.
Kevin Barker, member for Vetiver has made a documentary of the 2004 magic tour and it will be released soon. Breaking is camera out on a tour which included the likes of Banhart and Newsome, this documentary looks dope! I have included the teaser just to give you guys a little taster. I am quite excited to see this bad boy in full. The full length version will be presented at the on April 2 and 3.
I am not going to embed the video, just for the sake of speed and continuity. Nonetheless, enjoy.
