RF Preview - Part 2
. . .Continuing our preview series. This year the smart heads behind Roskilde Festival have done away with the 'Metropol' tent - The electronic tent - and also the world music hippie tent (The name eludes me right now). Instead they've established a new urban scene - Cosmopol - "The stage is a brand new hot spot for underground urban genres and will sparkle with hip hop, R’n’B, global beats and rhythms, neo-soul and music from the more organic electronic scene" - I'm sceptical. I want my techno stage dammit, where the following ideally should play saturday night:

Bmore king / Baile Funk to the mainstream bringer Diplo (Wiki) is already a Roskilde Veteran having closed the festival on a previous occasion. The Dipster has impecable musical credentials, at least partly responsible for the world knowing of M.I.A. (If you haven't heard it, track down one the best mixtape projects ever Diplo & M.I.A.: Piracy Funds Terrorism), Bondo Do Role, and also Spank Rock. Thus you already know this guy has a good musical ear and if that wasn't enough, he is also partly responsible for the huge mashup/bootleg wave a couple of years ago! He is the musical equivalent of a Tomahawk missile with a nuclear device as a warhead - There is something for everyone! Expect big beats and music all over the spectrum. Hopefully, we won't have to wait until late sunday night to join the Diplo party.

Here is a small mix I made of some of his great remixes:

Justin Timberlake - My Love (Diplo Remix)
Hot Chip-Over and Over (Diplo's Shake it Over and Over Remix)
Kanye West - Gold Digger (Diplo Remix)
CSS - Let's Make Love and Listen to Death From Above (Diplo Remix)
Kanye West - Stronger (Diplo's Work is Never Over Remix)
Diplo Vs The Beatles - Sshake it up

'Vorsprung durch Technik' could be the motto of Berlin based Jeans Team. It's hard to describe Jeans Team - at least when you're not German - without mentioning Kraftwerk. Actually I'd bet that this is what Kraft' would sound like if they'd found guitars instead of keyboards. It's destinctly German and it is destinctly rocking!
Now join me: "Ich singe keine Melodien - Ich singe 1 - 2 - 3 - 4!"

    I'm with you on loving Jeans Team (be sure to listen to "Oh Bauer" if you haven't yet), but I got some news: Kraftwerk's first album had guitars on it, and a live drummer. And it was quite rocking! They sounded quite different from their stark electronicness that they're known for now. Check it out if you're a fan of krautrock, because its awesome.
