Deerhunter - Helicopter (Diplo & Lunice Mix)

Lunice, cousin of Deerhunter's lead vocalist, Bradford Cox, teams up with Diplo to create a track that is less in the vain of Diplo's party vibe and more reminiscent of the original track. Diplo does put a bit of his spin on the track adding some funky drum programming on top more in line with an Atlanta Crunk sound than Deerhunter's "Ambient Punk" sound.

The outcome is absolutely perfect for a multitude of situations. Whether you're driving down the street, in the club or finishing up your morning reports (hint, hint), this track should be your companion. Don't skip this one.

ACL 2010 - What's On Schedule?

So, here we are; October of 2010. Each October, the city of Austin is granted two wishes. One of those wishes is one of college football traditions in America. That was last week, and Texas lost. This week, we have Austin City Limits Music Festival.

ACL started as a rather understated 2-day event with 60 performing acts. It has now blossomed into a full scale, 3-day event rivaling other major festivals such as Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Lollapalooza. And, while ACL is best known as the little brother to the 3 other big boys, it still packs a powerful punch.

Tomorrow, I plan to unveil a mix of tracks featuring some of the bands slated to perform. In the meantime, here are some videos of the bands I'm planning to catch.


Miike Snow


Vampire Weekend


Two Door Cinema Club

Broken Bells



The Flaming Lips
