TrapperKeeper – Best of 2010: Lazerproof

Soundtrek, TK:NYC

Oh, hai “that time of year again,” didn’t hear you come in – well, have a seat and make yourself comfortable. I’m not spectacular at year-end reviews… I prefer life like I prefer my albums: gapless. That said, I hat-tipped six artists, songs, and albums that made me pause and take time to jot the time and place – year included – over the last 300-someodd days; and six creations that embodied and encapsulated sonic aesthetic for 2010. Why six? Why not? To the six I take, to have and to hold; forever like a TrapperKeeper, Pop safe in the fold. #enjoi

For the second round, I invite you to indulge in citric sonic splendor, to dwell in dollhouse dubstep divinity… welcome to the truth

“I’m Not Your Lemonade (Heroes and Villains Mix)” – Lazerproof Major Lazer x La Roux

Major Lazer and La Roux is a match made in dubstep heaven… let the angels rejoice and the devils stomp to dub beats. The mixtape features samples that trot the globe: hopping from Houstatlantavegas, touching down in Toronto, finagling in Finland, trapping in Atlanta, and finding diamonds in the roughest places everywhere in between. The result is a perfect collective summer anthem fit for any system. Remember where you first heard the intoxicatingly visceral vibes, as they will no doubt be heard on dashboards and dancefloors all over until the world goes tone deaf.

#mytwocents: This was a cultural convergence and sonic cacophony of the highest kind – the bonfire around which the future tribes of music will dance: this is the kindling.

Dime Dailies: Three Things to Do in Atlanta This Weekend 3/26-3/28

Uncategorized

A quick-and-dirty hat trick of things to do in the Dirty this weekend…

“The Allure of the Automobile”

WHAT: Walk it out like Andre 3000 to The High Museum for an evolution of roadsters “considered classics before the drastic change in production when cars were metal instead of plastic.” The exhibit runs through June 20 and features rare “rolling sculptures” from rocket-esque roadsters like the 1937 Dubonnet “Xenia,” to low-country-luxe 1948 Tucker Model 48 Torpedo.

WHY: In Atlanta, top-dollar rides are a dime-a-dozen; it’s worth the visit to see truly one-of-a-kind rides that show the art behind the artifice.
