Asher Roth and Nottz Team for Free EP

Rapper Asher Roth and producer Nottz released a joint EP, entitled Rawth. The collaboration, which has been in the works for a while, is available for free HERE. Chester French, Rhymefest and Kardinal Offishall also lend their talents to the album, making it a must get.

Down below, you can grab the duo’s current single “Gotta Get Up.” The track is a nice preview of the EP, as it finds Roth at his best. The sample is also pretty sweet.

Calvin Harris Remixes Passion Pit

I think the title says it all. Calvin Harris recently remixed Passion Pit’s ‘The Reeling’ and the only reaction that can explain this is ‘WOW’. Combining two of the current hottest musical forces Harris manages to give a whole new life to this Passion Pit song….just when you didn’t think one of their songs could possibly get any better.  Giving the song a little softer tone and a brilliant into bassline I can only imagine what would happen if these guys made a record together. 

Passion Pit is currently on tour so don’t forget to check them out in your city! Tour dates can be found at their Myspace.

Video: Chester French ‘She Loves Everybody’


Until about 11 o’clock last night, I had no idea who in the world Chester French was. I had heard the name before and that was about the end of our relationship. Was it a band? Was it a one man show? Is anyone named Chester besides that Sloan song circa 1998? I decided to check out Chester French out of curosity, and I’m not sure that I have ever taken to a band so quickly. Think of them as MGMT lite. Chester French is indeed a band.  I checked out the video for ‘She Loves Everybody’ and I haven’t been able to get the song out of my head since. The duo of Maxwell Drummey and D.A. Wallach met at Harvard, named themselves after a sculptor (David Chester French), have been remixed by N.E.R.D., played SXSW and have been signed to Star Trax/Interscope Records. Phew. Chester French is definatly THE band to watch out for in 2009.
