A couple of (slightly old but nonetheless very good) downloadable mixes

First, from a few months back (I think), Mike Paradinas (aka ╬╝-ziq)'s "Watermelon Thievery Mix"- 60 minutes of very nice jungle. He's also running a competition at the Planet Mu homepage- you can win an autographed Am╬╝nition t-shirt if you send him the most accurate tracklisting. Good luck if you intend to try it...

And DJ /rupture's Gold Teeth Thief mix, which has been around for ages but is well worth linking for those who haven't heard it yet.

Also be sure to grab his song "High Resolution."

Negrophonic and DJ /rupture
Buy Gold Teeth Thief from Tigerbeat6 (Only a few hundred copies made, but they're still available. Tigerbeat6 mail order is dirt cheap, too, so it's well worth digging around to see what you can find.)

A review will be posted before Sunday or I'll eat my hat.

"But wait! That is not The Space! Where is he being now?!"

MK12 are a design/animation collective responsible for, among other things, Hot Hot Heat's "No, Not Now" video. But their original shorts are even better- especially the completely insane "Man of Action." Just...just watch it. Also "Ultra Love Ninja," which proves beyond all doubt that a ninja's heart is shiny.

MK12 (more QT videos)

First the Cinematic Orchestra recorded a soundtrack for Dziga Vertov's Man With a Movie Camera, and now it's come to this: the Pet Shop Boys have soundtracked Battleship Potemkin. Lileks is thrilled, I'm sure.

Stopgap post

Just a quick post to say hello to anyone coming here from Fluxblog, and to apologize- not much here at the moment, I'm afraid, and updates will be slow for a while because of school. But, in the meantime, here are some mp3s:

LCD Soundsystem, "Tribulations"
Presumably an early leak from the forthcoming album by LCD Soundsystem, aka James Murphy of the DFA. Very different from the earlier stuff like "Losing My Edge" and "Beat Connection," with a more melodic synthpop sound.

Tes, "Trigga Tha Whistla (The Black Dice Remix)"
From Lex's latest promo sampler, Lexample Blue, and as far as I know not available elsewhere yet. Good stuff, and a bit less weird and more rhythmic than you might expect from Black Dice.

At least one review will be up by the end of the week, I swear.
