Danger + Vahé – Spring Fever/Autumn Leaves (a mix for both hemispheres)

zip | rar

Danger of Dipped In Dollars & myself, with the aid of a mutual friend, hooked up for a collabo mix in honour of our respective seasons (hers: Spring in the U.S, mine: Autumn in Australia), and the result is a beautimus mix that goes from upbeat-chill, bouncy n optimistic & segues into contemplative indoor languish-mode. stream/download the whole thing below @ SoundCloud, or choose from .rar or .zip downloads above.

The Weeknd – House Of Balloons (2011) + “What You Need”

these days the name of the game is ‘random finds’, and in an era where any person with musical aptitude and access to the internet can make a dent, sometimes they make a muthafuckin SPLASH instead. a good example was the accumulative blow-up effect of L.A. trio King, who recently took over the entire web as the next undiscovered awesome musical entity. well now i proudly add The Weeknd to this list. real name Abel Tesfaye, he’s a Toronto native & sang on and self-released “House Of Balloons”, which i think is officially regarded as a ‘mixtape’ although most ppl consider it a fully-formed, sonically & thematically-unified true album. Abel’s songs under The Weeknd moniker first leaked in 2010, the album being released for free via his website in March of this year (the first of a planned trilogy, all coming in 2011). the album was produced entirely by Canadian producers Doc McKinney and Illangelo. i’ve yet to listen to the album as i can’t seem to get over “What You Need”. once i get sick of the song (which should be in a few weeks time once i’ve worn it the fugg out), i’ll give it a listen. but i’m confident enough from that one song to make this post and throw my weighty props behind this release.
