Tanlines: Live at Brooklyn Flea Record Fair

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!

If you can't see the above box, click here.

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.

Crowbar Method mix by DJ Louche

Check out this sweet mix by Nightflight's DJ Louche. He has distilled a typical 5 hour set from his regular Saturday night gig at Dublin's Crowbar into this succinct, happy mix to give us an idea of what to expect: a little bit of everything!

From the man himself: 'all mellow at the start and kicking on, packed with bar favourites. Mixed on the fly with CD and vinyl, it's a little rough around the edges, but the tunes are pretty solid IMHO. Enjoy!'

Indeed, enjoy, and head on down to Crowbar of a Saturday eve if you are out and about!
