La Roux - Bulletproof (Troublemaker Edit)

from the Hollyrock desk...

Hello Friends.
Here is another edit from my upcoming mixtape.
There is a possibility this one may not make the cut; we will see.
You may be like me and say, "another remix of this song?," and I feel that.
I came up with this in the living room over the holiday while in headphones.
When I finally played it out loud, everyone really liked it.
I guess good songs never get old, and neither do Doorly's drums. Enjoy.
Download it here...

OMF(ood)G - Simply Delicious = Chow Baby

My eating has apparently been boring lately and I have not suggested any appealing places to go in a while. Today though I went to CHOW BABY on Ponce de Leon and it was both delicious and fun actually. Being able to pick your own veggies, seasonings and meat to accompany your rice or noodles lets you take part in making the meal. I have to say I thought I did a very good job on my dish! (ha ha!) They also have appetizers, soup etc. The price is reasonable and they had friendly service. If you go at lunch try to be there before 12:00 as it does get crowded. That in itself says it is good!

OMFG - Charlie Sheen: Duh, Losing!

When I first told friends that I was going to see Charlie Sheen at the Fox, I received a very polarized collection of responses. Half of my friends were jealous, and the other half were disgusted. "The show is going to suck"..."He's gonna get booed off stage"..."You will be so mad you wasted your time." But I figured since the tickets were free, I really had nothing to lose. I thought, Who wouldn't want to witness this spectacle? The man went on TV talking crazy and now all of a sudden, he is on tour using the media's ridicule to help fuel his career. It's brilliant! Brilliant concept maybe. But brilliant, the show was not.

The Violent Torpedo of Truth show opened to a guitarist on stage playing through a montage of movie clips, half of which did not even star Sheen. But it definitely served it's purpose for getting the crowd fired up, as drunken college students screamed and cheered at each scene. This relentless screaming continued for a good fifteen minutes into the show. You could barely hear what our man of the hour had to say through the random shouts of "Winning!" "Sorry for partying, Charlie!" and "Fuck Detroit!" echoing through the theater every four seconds. After the mayhem settled slightly, Sheen was able to stumble through a thirty minute monologue that only contained about two actual jokes. The remainder of this time was consumed by awkward banter between Sheen and some audience members, close-ups of two girls in the front row kissing and showing out for an unnecessary amount of time, and a whole segment dedicated to Sheen peeling off Falcons, Braves, and Tech apparel and tossing them into the audience. Of course a little hometown humor and team loyalty will keep people's interest for a while, but after that he lost the crowd.

Sheen then moved into an interview segment where he sat down with Rock 100.5's "Southside" Steve Rickman and Larry Wachs, and after a couple of uninteresting questions, the booing commenced. The crowd was getting restless. Heckles were getting louder and closer together. It was time for Sheen to bring out his secret weapon, Jeffrey Ross. Ross walked out wearing a hazmat suit and proceeded to do what he does best and roasted Sheen. Ross had the crowd cracking up for the next ten minutes. He said he was honored to be part of the "Apparently the Novelty Hasn't Worn Off Yet" Tour. Then hit Sheen with lines like, "It's funny your show was called Two and a Half Men, because that's how many people will be left in the theater when this show's over" and "If you're winning, then apparently there's something wrong with the fucking scoreboard." He mentioned that upon arriving in Atlanta Charlie kept asking how to get to the World of Coke but was disappointed to find out that it was actually the Coca-Cola museum. Appropriately, Ross joked about Sheen's escapades with porn stars, drug use, and his current custody battle. He then wrapped up with some cracks about Sheen's movie career. "Let's face it Charlie. You're the black sheep of a family that was responsible for three Mighty Ducks movies...You make your father ashamed that he shares the same fake last name with you."

Then the ridiculousness ensued when Ross and Sheen stated that the first ten people to make it on stage could ask Sheen one question. One lady asked Sheen to motorboat her on stage, a request which he hesitantly obliged. Ross made funny quips, and some of the audience participants were quite entertaining themselves. Charlie said a few more words about his hopes for his television career to get back on track. He then thanked everyone and brought the show to a close with a performance by ex-MTV Veejay Simon Rex, who apparently (and sadly) has a somewhat budding rap career as Dirt Nasty, rhyming about cocaine in the 80's. It was a sad display, but an appropriate end to the shit fest that we had all just witnessed.

Needless to say, I'm glad I didn't actually spend any money to see the show, and I feel sorry for the people who did. Had it not been for the saving grace of Jeffrey Ross, the whole thing would have been a disaster. And I made sure I let him know this when he walked past us outside after the show. I would have liked to have eloquently complimented him, but instead, in a half-drunken fog, I just slapped him five and shouted, "Jeff Ross! Dude, you fucking rock! You WERE the show, man!" I immediately realized he would not respond the way I hoped since it was not his show. He just looked around slightly bewildered and stated, "Okay. I was the show." Yes, Jeff, you were...Sorry Charlie.

DivKid - Drop Kick EP

An awesome new release from the DivKid duo. Aptly named, Drop Kick is a heavy electro progressive banger. The original track is badass alone, but with this menacing remix package; David Menezes' pounding electro remix, Deep Infect's almost balearic sounding tech-house remix, Dom Kane's dark euro-trance electro remix, and Grubby's hypnoticly sick dubstep remix... I highly reccomend picking this up!

Dirt Nasty x Wolfgang Gartner - 1980 (Rad Omen Edit)

A couple years back, my buddy Russell showed me the video for this track called "1980" from Dirt Nasty. I instantly knew I had to get this track in full quality. Scavenged around and found the rest of Dirt Nasty's tunes as well as a slew of similar west coast 'balla' raps from the Dyslexic Speedreaders troupe. Here's that video... which also happens to be directed by Nicholaus Goosen (who directed the Rad Anthem video for Rad Omen, as well as the full-length feature "Grandma's Boy")

I did end up dropping that one as the closer to my Summer Of Slam! '08 Mix which you can listen to here. Fast forward to early '10 when I discovered Rad Omen and the infamous Rad Anthem, later that year they dropped 'Search, Party & Destroy'


And then a few days ago Rad Omen drops this sick mixtape...


Rad Omen – Rad Anthem
Kavinsky – Nightcall (The Girls Can Hear Us Remix)
David Guetta feat. Rihanna – Who’s That Chick (Fuck Me I’m Famous Mix)
Yo Majesty – Club Action Chris (Acapella)
Mark Okoh feat. Marty Rod – Let Me See Your Hands (Kill Paris Mix)
Swedish House Mafia – One/Your Name (Vendisco Re-Edit)
Wolfgang Gartner – Illmerica
Dirt Nasty – 1980 (Acapella)
Calvin Harris – Flashback (Million Dollar Mano Remix)
Rad Omen feat. Hollywood Holt – More Fire! (Acapella)
Calvin Harris – You Used to Hold Me (Laidback Luke Remix)
Avicii and Sebastien Drums – My Feelings for You
Rad Omen – Information Age
Big Boi – Stutterbug (Jack Beats Remix)
Rad Omen – Rad Theme (Acapella)
Duck Sauce – Barbara Streisand
Deadmau5 feat. Rob Swire – Ghosts n Stuff (Vocal Mix)
Afrojack – Replica
The ’87 Stick Up Kids feat. Amanda Blank and Micah James – Psycho Killer (Acapella)
Dada Life – Unleash the Fucking Dada
Yolanda Be Cool and D Cup – We Speak No Americano
Cee Lo Green – Fuck You

Put that in your pipe and smoke it...

But of course all that was leading up to this, Rad Omen have just released this incredibly sick edit of Dirt Nasty's "1980" with Wolfgang Gartner's "Illmerica", pure electro progressive rad GOLD!
