Snake Eyes


October is looking to be a crazy month for shows, to be honest. So far, I've already got Angus & Julia Stone, A-Trak, Classixx, Etienne de Crecy & Chromeo lined up, and September isn't even over yet. You should expect a few noticeable changes on Avenge The Virgins in the coming month as well, since we're trying to step our game up and expand our reach a bit. A lot of behind-the-scenes stuff, but hopefully we'll be able to show you the fruit of our labour in a not-too-distant future.

Anyways, I felt like treatin you to some somewhat soothing music today. You know how I roll on rainy-ass days like today.

Mayer Hawthorne- No Strings (produced by Classixx)

I'm guessing this came to be after Mayer Hawthorne heard the great (and coincidentally, overloaded with strings) remix that Classixx did of his "Green-Eyed Love" tune a while back. These L-A disco kings always deliver quality productions, and this soulful monster of a tune seems to support their winning streak of dope work. Detroit native Hawthorne, one of the brightest stars on Peanut Butter Wolf's label Stones Throw, channels all of the Motown greats and delivers a silky smooth sexual salvo of a song. Here's to hoping that Classixx and Mayer Hawthorne work together again in the future.

Busy Signal- One More Night 2009

One more night, give me just one more night. I love Busy Signal's music with a passion, and this just happens to be one of my favorites. A lovers reggae tune for those nights where you just kick it back with the missus. This song is the audio equivalent of pillow talk, folks. No need for foreplay, you've got Busy Signal to heat up the vibe.

Tiga- You gonna want me (Hey Today! remix)

I'm not too sure if this is kosher to post, but what the hell. I love you, Turbo Records, please don't send a cease and desist! The people need to hear this masterpiece, for it shall be bulldozing their dancefloors into rubble very soon. My friends, you have been warned.


Well, now, I would have posted the song that goes with the video below, but, to be honest, it has been posted everywhere. Just enjoy this phenomenal visual roller coaster ride instead . El Guincho es mas awesome, cabron.



See you tomorrow,

-Matt
