Tall Black Guy Productions – Inspiration by Laid Back on Mixcloud

A heavy dose of Brazilian-inspired soul from one of my favorite producers, Tall Black Guy. He made my week when he responded to one of my tweets.  Today I saw that Tall Black Guy and TY, another of my favorite artists, were hanging out in London.

Hopefully some amazing music will come of it.

Shugo Tokumaru “Katachi” from Kijek / Adamski on Vimeo.

Japanese artist Shugo Tokumaru created this absolutely stunning stop-motion video for his song “Katachi,” along with help from the creatives at Kijeck/Adamski. Katachi means “shape” in Japanese, and each character  was created by artist Dawid Kryzanowski who used PVC plates etched by a computer-controlled cutter.

Beautiful and upbeat song, and a brilliant, inspiring product.

H/T GOOD

Review: Milktape Soothes Mixtape Nostalgia in a Digital Age http://flavorist.net/milktape/ http://flavorist.net/milktape/#comments Wed, 16 Jan 2013 22:34:20 +0000 http://flavorist.net/?p=3024

When was the last time you made a mix tape for a love interest? It’s probably been quite a while! Startup Milktape wants to take you back to simpler times, when making a mix for your “main hang” wasn’t something shared on Spotify, but was instead a laboriously-dubbed cassette tape. That’s right, a physical object.

Milktapes are 128 megabyte USB drives housed in an audio cassette-like case. The Milktape can hold about 15 songs, so they’re roughly the same length as a traditional mix tape. While swapping mixes on USB drives is a practice that has been around for many years, the advantage of the Milktape is that the cassette and it’s plastic case allow you to scribble tokens of your affection just like the old days. Is it worth $15 a pop? Probably not, but the company says they will ship anywhere(!), so that must be worth something. Being

Two years was the last time I made a love interest a musical mix, and it was on a CD. To do so I had to buy a spindle of 50 cheapo blanks at the drug store, because I wouldn’t spend $5 on a single disc, but that’s another story. Fast forward to 2013, and my MacBook Air doesn’t even have an optical drive. Cloud computing is the way of the future, which means the mix tape, and even the mix CD is a relic.

DJ’s don’t bring records to clubs anymore, because they spin on Serato, and I have an app that allows me to DJ a party right from my iTunes library, complete with scratch effects and beat matching. I’m not lamenting retirement of old technologies, because I think what each new innovations makes possible is pretty rad. The T-Mobile Sidekick, which used to be the ultimate celebrity accessory is a laughable antique just a few years after it was must-have.

If you’re old enough to remember the mix tape, you’ll appreciate the charming video below that shows the relentless march of technology in a way that words can’t. These French-Canadian school children have no clue how to use technologies that were cutting edge, and ubiquitous when their parents were adolescents.

A beautiful song by Australian producer Proof of Concept, who reminds me of everything I love about 4 Hero. Orchestral drum and base, sonorous, rising instrumentation, and a lot of romance.
