Friday At Five [Weekend Music]

Friday at Five

EDIT: For some reason this never published at the right time, but here’s your FAF, a day late

I’m super excited guys. The NBA is officially back tonight. Okay, it’s just preseason, but the fact that I’m not already watching my team makes every game that much sweeter. And you’ll see that I dedicated the first FAF song to this celebratory occasion. What’s errbody up to this weekend? #TGIFAF

1. “NYE Chicago Bulls Intro (Remix)” – Pretty Lights

Pretty Lights – NYE Chicago Bulls Intro Remix by prettylights

In anticipation of the renewed and upcoming NBA season, I wanted to spread some Luvabulls with you. Pretty Lights dropped this live to ring in 2011 just about a year ago, and Congress Theater in Chitown went almonds to say the least. Yeah, I’m a Bulls fan, but you don’t have to be one to appreciate this NBA jam.

2. “I.D.G.A.F.O.S.” – Dillon Francis

Dillon Francis – I.D.G.A.F.O.S. by DILLONFRANCIS

La-La Land native Dillon Francis is one of Mad Decent’s best. Diplo sure knows how to pick ’em, eh?

3. “Pursuit of Happiness (Steve Aoki Remix)” – Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi – Pursuit of Happiness (Steve Aoki Remix) by steveaoki

This is probably my all time favorite remix of Cudder. I got a chance to catch this song live when Aoki threw down in Madtown last year. It was a riot. There was champagne everywhere, crowd surfing via inflatable rafts and a lot of fucking sweat.

4. “This Plane (Viceroy Jet Life Remix)” – Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa – This Plane (Viceroy Jet Life Remix) by VICEROY

Maaan. What ever happened to the Kush and Orange Juice Wiz? You know, before he dyed a patch of his hair blonde and started messing around with Yeezy-taught Amber rose?  I miss that dude. The least we can do now is enjoy his remixes I suppose. Taylor Gang or…

5. “A Real Hero (feat. Electric Youth)” – College

College feat. Electric Youth – A Real Hero by College

Save this one for Sunday morning, it’s got that type of vibe. Much of the appeal I got from watching Drive–whom a lot consider to be the year’s best flick–was from the soundtrack, and this was used prominently throughout the film. Enjoy some synth pop magic while getting flashbacks of Ryan Gosling stomping a dude’s head in.

Steve Aoki ft. Kid Cudi & Travis Barker – CuDi The Kid

Steve Aoki recruits CuDi & Travis Barker for this brand new song off of his upcoming project.

I don’t even like this song. Really, it’s weird and I just can’t find the appeal for it. Yet, I can’t stop listening to it. And there’s the appeal. That’s just the effect that Scott Mescudi has on me. Can’t stop, won’t stop. CuDi for the win!

Womp Womp Wednesday: Steve Aoki Style

So my boy Mikey Gendell is helping put together a dope little show at Mizzou at The Bluenote with ProbCause, Sinclair Wheeler, DJ E-V (I did a set with him, Chip Tha Ripper, and Felix Cartal this Halloween) and one of the filthiest DJ/producers around, the legendary Steve Aoki.

Since founding Dim Mak Records in 1996, Steve Aoki has since helped shape the electronic club scene as it has transitioned into a mainstream phenomenon. Steve Aoki has personally helped launch the careers of such artists as MSTRKRFT, Armand Van Helden and The Bloody Beetroots.

Buy tickets at Prime Social and sign up for the facebook event here. If you’re anywhere around Mizzou, or really anywhere around the state of Missouri, you need to get yourself to this show. Why? Well, I’ll let the music do the explaining.

1. Gifted (Steve Aoki Remix) – N.A.S.A.

So the original song featured an allstar line up (Kanye West, Santogold, Lykke Li) so you know if Steve Aoki is going to come in and put his touch on it, things are going to be ridiculous. I dare you to sit there and try to not start dancing. Seriously. Try it. Personally, I’m having trouble sitting in my chair and writing this, it’s taking all of my energy to concentrate so I don’t stand up and get my GOTDAMN GROOVE ON. “Y’all mutha fuckas know who this is…”

2. Pursuit of Happiness (Steve Aoki Remix) – Kid Cudi

Cudder. Aoki. Need I say more? Probably not, but because my job is to write about music, I guess I will anyways. To say that Cudi’s song was dope to begin with would be kind of like saying the sky is blue. But when Aoki puts his spin on this one, absurd amounts of dopeness is the byproduct. He takes the stems and turns them into something new and unique, in a fashion few do as well as Aoki. Check out this video of Aoki and Cudi playing this live at Cinespace, I would give all of my appendages to go back in time and see this live.

3. Warp 1.9 – The Bloody Beetroots and Steve Aoki

Is this real life? Maybe. Is this a ridiculous song? Yes. Does it frequently cause people to lose control of their bodily functions? Yes. Bloody Beetroots+Steve Aoki=Your face melting slowy.

Download “Warp 1.9”

Oh yeah, did I mention this show is on 4/20? Rage.
