Play with Hudson Mohawke’s Face Right Now

Yeah that's p. interesting.

New (Retro) Mixed Media is a real thing, with GIF and 3D render artists making mad bank from creative contracts and fat EBAY sales. Try mixing interactivity with tumblr / Chicago / PC feelz, and you have something the killer beatmaker/Apple Commercial Guy Hudson Mohawke tries to totally bridge with his recent release of an interactive “video” for

Music Video: Brodinski ft. SD – “Can’t Help Myself”.

Recommended: Listen With Your Balls.

We can all be real: In the US, Brodinski has basically been in the shadows, known more as a producer for artists, doing work for big personalities like Kanye and recently, setting up that sweet “Can’t Stop” track for Theophilus London (in collaboration with our sweetest Cheval bru, Canblaster). Sure you like him on Facebook, but do

Ta-Ku Releases Drive Slow, Homie Pt. IV

In a year full of fuck that shit, Ta-ku kept it pretty clean.

Let’s be real: This has got to be one of the shittiest years ever — but then every year’s been one of the shittiest years — and while we pretend to ignore it by going to massive parties and neglecting to vote during midterm elections (which is seriously the reason why every year feels like the shittiest

Diplo’s One Image Sums Up the Problem With Music Sites

Before we start on Diplo, let's take a trip down brain-exercise lane. Imagine the following:

Picture this: We’re hanging out at the beach — y’know keeping it casual — while I’m tickling your b-hole with a shy feather, when suddenly I go ahead and give you a donut with bacon bits on top, and FUCKING CHEESEBURGER FILLING in the middle. What would your reaction be? Personally mine would be: Shit thas nasty, but oooh you fancy.   Without

Indie Playlist: Oct. 5, 2012

This week’s new Indie Playlist is kinda all, like one fucking spicy pizza. Pizza is all about sharing, ’cause if you eat one alone, you’re probably a top fuck — and that’s just not you silly. Today’s indie playlist is all about artists who’ve received shout-outs from other artists willing to cut a slice of their

Spönge: September 26, 2012

We’re all about’s that rotation hurr at Sweetest HQ — y’know like when we keep inconsistent (rotating) posting schedules.

Coming to Central: oOoOO.

oOoOO – 333 There have been a lot of times when we’ve been stopped in our tracks, our minds absolutely blown by slick bedroom artists (& Kpop missy’s) that have forced a bushel of throaty oh‘s from our bodies. oOoOO yes bbgirls and boys, music-wise we are clearly in the midst of a slick 90’s

Are Your Hipster Balls Angry?

My never-there hipster father once told me two things before he left the family to marry a prostitute: The first piece of advice was: “Kid, never hit a lady” — a mantra he didn’t necessarily follow, and the second piece was one he whispered to me softly, while holding his junk on the lawn, dry-heaving: “Mind the

Some DIY Music With Howard

It’s 5:02am and I have work in a couple of hours. (PRO TIP: Greens stop all sorts of bitching) At Sweetest Drip, we have a weird form of quality control that — I think — reflects the culture we’re trying to cheer on: A good indie artist to us will be DIY, easy-access, interesting and

Trippple Nippples. Get your attention yet?

Like it or not, Trippple Nippples is a genius name. It’s hard to refresh genres, but “electropop” artists Trippple Nippples look ready to scale that mountain—in pasties—and get your attention (if their name or pasties haven’t done that already). From frenetic intros to full-steam tribal/taiko-infused energetic beats, the Tokyo artists aren’t your normal female-fronted act. And we’re
