One of my favorite songs of 2010, La Roux’s In for the Kill, gets the remix treatment from one of my favorite artists, Kanye. ‘Ye seems to have his hands in everything right now with remixes of Justin Bieber and French Pop artist Stromae to working with the Wu, and now La Roux.
Always a breath of fresh air, even if it’s old. via Nahright.com: Jay did both verses from this Flex’s show in October of 2006. “Most Kings” was the Jean-Michel Basquiat inspired song that was set to be on Kingdom Come, but that never saw the light of day. Around that time, DJ Green Lantern was Jay’s DJ and he even released “Corporate Takeover” on one of his mixtape (which was the other verse from that legendary Funkmaster Flex freestyle.) These bars mostly ended up on Jay’s “Lost” remix for Coldplay.

Mandie just introduced me to a band by the name of Atomic Tom. They hail from Brooklyn, NY and are working on mixing their album right now. Check out some reviews from Amie Street and MTV below. Check out their single Take me Out and if you like their stuff, go vote for them here (bottom right hand corner). Let me know what you think!
“Atomic Tom is an energetic pop-rock band that wants to rock your world. Singing about love, sex, and madness, this NYC based band is influenced by bands like The Cure and The Dandy Warhols. They’ve gained so much buzz that they’ve earned a weekly residency at the well known rock club Arlene’s Grocery. Check these guys out before the rest of the
world discovers this great band.” – Amie Street
“Atomic Tom frontman Luke White likes to refer to their performances as “melting faces” rock shows. White’s songs [translate] well into deep, melodic strums that have steady, simple bass lines, highlighting White’s thick vocal style.”
I just discovered the band, Apes & Androids, through Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) on Twitter. According to Wikipedia, the band became known for its extravagant live shows which included dancers dressed as zombies and their mix of glam rock and electro pop. Too bad it also says they disbanded in ’09. Maybe 2010 will change their mind? What do you all think.
