Radiohead-Not For Profit

August 19, 2008

Whether you’ve been able to engage in the mystique that was Radiohead’s summer tour and want to relive that very night, or if you are just curious what they sound like live, then please check out Radiohead Not For Profit.  As of now, its up to date with audio from every show this summer, along with other notable live performances.  All downloads are free as the creators only ask you not to sell them for profit.  I just downloaded the infamous Bonnaroo 06′ set.  Find your show!

Keep They Heads Ringing

August 19, 2008

If you watched any of the Team USA’s romping on the basketball court in Bejing, then theres a chance you noticed the similar headphones every player has draped around their neck.  The unofficial sponsor of blasting beats to these star’s heads is none other than the Doc himself.  Dre’s newest contribution to the music world is his new headphones system; Beats by Dre.  Dre’s mission is to create a state of the art system where the listener can enjoy studio monitor quality.

“When I’m making a track I’m trying to capture the sound that makes me go ‘now THAT’s the shit! And I want that reaction from everybody who hears it. I spend a lot of time in the studio listening to my music through headphones…with Beats, people are finally going to hear it the way they should: the way I do.”

As of now, the Beats will run you about $350-400 depending on where you buy them.  Not chump change at all for headphones.  I sure as hell appreciate my Bose over ear system and look forward to trying a new set thats supposed to blow any others away.  Wonder how Detox is gonna sound in these things.

Please, feel free to give any feedback if you use or hear anything about these Beats.

Sure fire Massachusetts mc, Termanology,  has been getting well-deserved attention amongst underground hip-hop ranks.  Most notably, Terms impressed DJ Premier who has already produced numerous tracks for the up-and-coming lyricist.  Term spits from topics of politics to everyday struggles.  His dagger like flow is the most impressive force.  Check out any of his Hood Politics mixtape series at Datpiff.com.  Heres the Hood Politics IV.
