Moon’s Song Of The Week – Superhero Music by Fingathing

 

I’ve had a week off from the site in order to get a few bits done (one of those being my 30th) but we’re back this weekend for more music and science. This week’s track is a jump into the archives for a song by Fingathing which is somewhat appropriate for this site. Drum Bowskill (who you’ll remember from the Mad Tree short we did a few weeks ago) gave me a USB full of music as a birthday present so don’t be surprised if I delve into it on more than one occasion over the next few weeks.

How this song has not made it onto the soundtrack of a movie, I will never know.

Moon’s Song of the Week – Happy Pills (Max Tannone Remix) by Norah Jones

 

There’s never a bad time to break out a Max Tannone track. This is a one off remix that he did for Norah Jones a little while back. As always Max’s seemingly limitless knowledge of dub reggae has allowed him to take a well known song and put a totally new slant on it. Effortlessly cool.

Enjoy!

Moon’s Song of the Week: Cold As Ice Remix by A.Skillz & Nick Thayer

 

 

I’m digging out a great club track this week British DJ A.Skillz and his Aussie partner in crime, Nick Thayer produced this badass reworking of Foreigner’s Cold As Ice a few months ago and I’ve been wanting to throw it up on the site ever since. There’s not a tonne of stuff to say about it, just that you’re gonna wanna play it loud.

You can download the track for free from HERE.

Moon’s Song of the Week – Hip Hop Anarchy by Max Tannone, Dead Prez, The Sex Pistols

 

Remix artist, Max Tannone released a new free album earlier this week so this week’s song is an easy choice. The Mic Check 1234 project fuses socially concious hip hop lyrics with classic punk rock and as a result you’re probably gonna either love it or consider it to be the death knell of music. I’m firmly in the former catagory and have had the album on repeat pretty much since it dropped.

I’m 50/50 on whether I like this track or the Tupac/X track the best, but given our rather broad readership I’ve gone for the moderately less sweary track.

As with all of Max’s work, you can stream or download the entire album for free by going to his official site.

Moon’s Song Of The Week: Willy Wonka Remix by SrslySirus

 

Remember how pissed Willy Wonka was when Charlie and his grandfather drunk the magic levitation drinks? Well now you can watch him being pissed to music! I don’t normally post internet remixes in this slot as they kinda fit better elsewhere, but this one is so nicely done that I thought it warranted a special mention. It’s daft, it’s funny and it will actually get you tapping your feet so I’d call that a win for the creators.

Moon’s Song of The Week – Johnny Too Beef by Max Tannone

I know it’s a bit early to be showcasing another Max Tannone track, but this video literally went live yesterday and Moon wanted to get it out there while it was still fresh.

Johnny Too Beef comes from Max’s Mos Dub project, an album which fuses the lyrical genius of Mos Def with some classic dub reggae. It’s probably my favourite of the Tannone projects and this fan made video for the album’s stand-out track is long overdue.

It’s made by youtuber Goodfear and you can check out the rest of his stuff here.

You can also download all of Max Tannone’s albums for free from his website.

Moon’s Song of the Week: Back In The Dark by Richard Rich, Clint Mansell & Max Tannone

Moon’s keeping it real (whatever that means) this week. It seems criminal that we’ve been running this site for over a year now without talking about the work of the mighty Max Tannone so it’s good to finally rectify that oversight. Max Tannone is a remix artist from New York who shot to fame with is remix project “Jadiohead” which fused the back catalogues of Radiohead and Jay Z together with stunning results.

Perhaps unsurprisingly however, Moon’s personal pick comes from Max’s 2011 project “Seline”, a concept album featuring hip hop remixes of the Clint Mansell’s score for the Sci-Fi movie “Moon.” Mansell’s score is beautiful enough on its own and Max’s re imagining of the music brings a whole new level of enjoyment.

You can pick up all of Max’s projects for free from his website.

United States of Pop 2011

DJ Earworm‘s United States of Pop mixes have become something of an internet staple in the last few years. The idea is that he takes a selection of major pop songs from the past 12 months and turns them into a poptastic supermix (neither of which are words I expected to use). This year’s showing is a fine one and while I barely recognise any of the individual tracks, I’m still rather fond of the finished article.

You can download the mp3 for free HERE.

The Golden Age of Video – Incredible Mashup

I’m away on my honeymoon right now but in order to not shirk my Bunkerly duties, I’ve queued up 10 awesome vids for you dear people. Enjoy!

This has been one of my favourite youtube clips ever since I came across it on the excellent Best of Youtube podcast and I’m actually kinda surprised that I’ve not posted it before. It’s a wonderful music video made up of clips from tonnes of classic movies and TV shows and is as finer a piece of editing and remixing as you’re likely to see. It’s by a chap called Ricardo Autobahn and you should check out the rest of his work on the strength of his name alone.

I just dare you to try and name every film shown here.

(Assuming I’ve not been eaten by a bear, I should be on my way home from Canada tomorrow. Given the length of the flight and inevitable jet lag, it may be a couple of days before real me is back on here, but as soon as I’m rested we’ll be back to business as usual. I hope you enjoyed the break as much as I did…probably).
