Can MSTRKRFT Save Electro? Probably Not…

What the fuck is took you guys so long?

What the fuck is took you guys so long?

It’s been too long. Far, far far too long since MSTRKRFT has released their electro MSTRPC (masterpiece), The Looks. Now, about 3 years later, Canada’s synth-shredding superheroes are finally ready to release their long awaited sophomore effort, Fist of God.

After 2008, an entire year deprived of quality electro, will MSTRKRFT be able to revive the young and dying genre? Will Fist of God jumpstart the electro renaissance of ’06/’07. Unfortunately, I think not.

For this second LP, those crazy Canadians have enlisted the vocal help of a slew of artists, including Ghostface Killa and E-40, but I assure you, this wont help resusitate a quickly dying breed. The only thing that this new album guarantees is the complete transformation of electro, from underground club gold to mainstream radio crud. MSTRKRFT’s tracks WILL receive radio play. I’m predicting that now. That’s not even a bold prediction, see as how Crookers have managed to seep into the airwaves through their remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day and Night.” MSTRKRFT will manage to have the first (and last) decent electro track climb up the charts, and once that happens we all know what comes next:


I’m not going to post any of their new tracks, since they aren’t that great and we’d probably be asked to take them down anyway. Instead I’m going to take you back in time, so that you can reminisce about the era in which MSTRKRFT was DFA 1979…with drum sequencers.

Panthers – Thank Me With Your Hands (my favorite MSTRKRFT remix)

Bloc Party – Two More Years (It’s better than the original)

Wolfmother – Woman (Remember Wolfmother?)

Some old, some new. Enjoy

Stanton Warriors & The Beatnuts – Shake It Up

We Have Band – Hear It In the Cans (DIY Version)

Local Talent #2.5: More Adam S

Posted in DJs, Good Shit, Local Talent, mixtapes, Orlando with tags , , , , , on November 27, 2008 by Ben Badio

Mr. Smith decided to release a masterpiece mix AFTER being blogged on Hands Up. Is this some sort of ploy by Adam to get blogged about TWICE?

Well…it worked.

Adam’s new mix, entitled “Camelsutra” is comprised of rock, funk and folk classics from the past, perfectly blended into a 41-minute time warp. It’s got everything from James Brown to The Stone Roses. Readers of Hands Up: I strongly suggest you download this and add Adam S on myspace. Highly Recommended.

NOTE: No one hands you a script when you go to see a movie, so I don’t feel obligated to put up a tracklisting. If you know whats coming it won’t be any fun!

Adam S – Camelsutra (Mix)

Hear and see Adam perform live every Saturday @ Redlight. All the info you need is on the flyers. Pay close attention to the funny dress code.
