Jesse Cohen from Tanlines played this set at Brooklyn Flea Record Fair a couple of days ago for RBMA. Not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't a Madness tune followed by some serious hip-hop and dancehall and a couple of bangin' tunes thrown in at the end - all very slick!

Not sure how well known Tanlines are this side of the Atlantic - if you don't know 'em you should check 'em out. They are from Brooklyn and produce very cool tunes. Check out the video for their song 'All Of Me' here and possibly my favourite song of theirs 'Real Life' here. (The whole album is called Mixed Emotions). For more info on the band go to truepanther.com/artists/tanlines.
Cohen also has a podcast where he talks to people from other bands, it's called No Effects, you can subscribe here. He seems really cool, check it out.
