Mayer Hawthorne’s sophomore album (and major label debut) will be released on October 11th. In anticipation of his new album, he will be releasing new music every monday as part of #MayerMondays. Here’s a remix of his current single, “A Long Time” by Chromeo. Nice!

So… I’m out in LA this week, and I’m hanging out with DJ Eric V (of the Baka Boyz) and DJ Homicide. They just introduced me to Skrillex. He is an electro/house/breakbeat/dubstep producer from LA. Check out his remix to Casxio’s “Seventeen” – he’s like Deadmau5 on steroids. In fact, Deadmau5 signed him to his imprint. Sick! Check it out here.
Of course this is in an old song… but not old enough to be a throwback. I just realized I never posted this! Check out James Pants’ song “Thin Moon” (off the album Seven Seals) as well as Mayer Hawthorne’s cover of it. I actually heard the Mayer Hawthorne cover first… both are great. Between MED, James Pants, Madlib, and Mayer Hawthorne, I’m loving this Stones Throw roster. Anyways, videos after the break (as always)…

I was having a discussion with Jeff the other day about Daft Punk, and then later on my friend Amar was playing “Voyager” on his home sound system. “Voyager” is a sick song off of the album, Discovery. Check it out below.
Here’s a new music video from British synthpop duo, Hurts, entitled “Sunday”… Check out the video after the break. Their album has been pretty difficult to find in the US… here are some links to purchase:
