Today marks Russell Jones 35th birthday, better known to people as Wu Tang Clan Legend, Ol Dirty Bastard. On this day Rae drops his ode to Dirt McGirt and a short video tribute by Kris Kinetik. RIP ODB!
We got the preview for this new Gorillaz video last week which wetted our appetites in the way only a Damon Albarn creation can. The video is for track "Doncamatic" which didn't feature on Plastic Beach, which is understandable as it does have a different feel to that of the last concept album. Yet it has the flavour of a Gorillaz track through and through. Check out the pretty cool video up top which features some cool underwater antics from Daley. If you like the track you can grab yourself a download of the Joker Remix over here.
Happy Music Monday! and what a Monday it is so far. You got the first audio samples from Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi's Rome featuring collaboration with Norah Jones and Jack White, a new G.O.O.D Friday track from Kanye, new Deadmau5 and a new FREE Girl Talk album, what more can you ask for? Wait. I know. How about 6 minutes of samples from Daft Punk's Tron Legacy score. Yeah. Thought that would do it. Check them out on the player below courtesy of Consequence of Sound and Daftworld.
Good morning, everyone! Who wants to start the day off right with a new Girl Talk album?? You do!?!? Well today is your lucky Monday! Head on over to Illegal Art to pick up Girl Talk's latest creation, All Day. The album is being offered to you, the public, for the actual retail price of $FREE.99. Seriously!
Currently, the album is available two ways: a group of MP3s or one seamless MP3 (FLAC is also on the way within the next day or so). As the websites notes:
All Day is intended to be listened to as a whole.
It is broken up into individual tracks only for easier navigation.
So there you have it, kiddies! Go getchu some Girl Talk and make this the best Monday ever!

Our favorite british producer/DJ Mark Ronson premiered a new unreleased cut from his recently released album Record Collection on his radio show Authentic Shit on East Village Radio. The track titled "Taste Of A Samurai" features Jarina de Marco and according to Ronson may be released on later edition of the album. But for now, we can all enjoy this World Premiere radio rip until the official track drops. IMO, this definitely shoulda made the final album.
Our favorite Mau5 head DJ recently posted a new track on his Soundcloud titled "Get In The Cart, Pig." It's another one of those track from Deadmau5 that starts with a beautiful atmospheric intro and builds up into absolute dance mayhem. Sadly, this track is only a preview of whats to come and doesn't show us its full potential but it is awesome to get a glimpse of what Deadmau5 has coming around the bin.
We also have the full HQ version of Deadmau5's latest single "Right This Second" off his upcoming album 4x4=12. The single officially dropped today so make sure you pick this banger up on iTunes.
