i haven't decided if i really like Macklemore's stuff yet or not, i think production is pretty good, just not yet sure if i like his emcee-ing style, feel like some times he nails it and other times he has some really lame lines. i dont take note of much hip hop anymore though, so ill give him credit that he caught my ear a few times.

For a while I was doing really fast metal stuff. The tempo seemed to keep me moving forward.


Absolutely heavy metal, and not an single electric cord used. Mnzozil Brass is an Austrian touring band. If you ever get the chance to go to a performance... take it.





Ana Vidovic, decidedly not heavy metal. Great studio music, for me anyway.

chillaxin' rock : nirvana - mtv unplugged in new york, crowded house - temple of low men, radiohead - the bends, r.e.m - out of time, coldplay - a rush of blood to the head

space out/ambient stuff : adam shaikh & tim floyd - drift, william orbit - strange cargo 3, bladerunner soundtrack, omnimotion - dream wide awake, marconi union - distance, kendall station - nebulae and gridlock

techno ambient : sounds from the ground - luminal, portishead - dummy, kid loco - a grand love story, global underground - exposures, global underground - afterhours 1 & 2, tricky - maxinquaye, massive attack - protection

techno ambient compilations : freezone 2, cafe del mar 5, nightmares on wax - latenighttales, mgmt - latenighttales, café mambo ibiza 09, zero 7 - another late night, thievery corporation - d.j. kicks, kruder & dorfmeister - d.j. kicks, erlend oye d.j. kicks, kid loco - another late night,

@pojo and yo

If you like Washed Out, check out Tame Impala. Great working music.



I've also been listening to a lot of Hot Chip recently.



I have had this Mac DeMarco song in my head for the last few days:

Drum and bass gets me in the zone! Lately though I've been listening to a lot of Blackmill (some type of melodic dub step).

Go the the Youtube URL...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK8mJJJvaes&feature=player_embedded

Take the alpha-numeric code after the " = " (highlighted in red) and paste it between [youtub-]QK8mJJJvaes[/youtub-] - brackets. Disregard everything after the alpha-numerics [ ... &feature=player_embedded] I left out the final "e" so it would display correctly

And Modern Man was remiss to not have included anything by Klaus Schultze and Conrad Schnitzler. What was Modern Man thinking?!?!
