Roskilde Preview 6
This time coming straight of Sarcelle, Paris - when something happens in Sarcelle, nothing happens, it just another beat dropped dead... Straight out of Sarcelle crazy band of brothers called DSL...... ..... ok the NWA joke taken a bit too far. DSL are as you've guessed another French bomb hitting Roskilde. DSL - David, Stephane, Lionel - are brothers, rapping doing the whole Ed Banger thing - and if you still find that just remotely interesting, which I do, then you should definetly check them out at Roskilde - expect a short banging show.

DSL - Invaders
DSL - Invaders (Busy P Remix)
Get single here

One the few good rap names at Roskilde this year is Canadian Cadence Weapon - A typical blog phenomenon: One song on one blog and whammo signed to a label. Don't say blogs don't do anything good then.

Cadence Weapon's lyrics are tongue in cheek, with great humor and great social insight. Check out great fun number Tattoos and what they really feel like - a song based on the social implications of a tattoo, metatalking in and out of characters piece of hip-hop. This years album, Afterparty Babies is filled with the stuff, and guess what, it's pretty great. Thus for all you skinny jeans blog babies out there - Go get yo' hype on

Roskilde Festival Preview 4
Musically nothing divides Denmark like Alphabeat. The true pop affectionados love them for their impecable take on pop in the late 00's and the rockists hate them for their unpretentious take on a highschool band. I like them so I guess that makes me fit into the first group somewhere.

They are a definete must see at this years Roskilde. I highly encourage you to lay down your rockist arms and enjoy the nice side of life. This is in pop terms as good as it gets (Sorry, You'll always be number one Kylie, but these guys (and girl) are really good).

Alphabeat - Boyfriend (UK/International version)
Alphabeat - Touching me touching you

I cannot recommend their album enough and there's even a bonus disc these days - get it here

Roskilde Festival Preview 3
I'm not sure anyone who reads my blog on just a semi regular basis has doubts about my great Hot Chip affection. I find them brilliant and by far one of the most relavant acts of the last 10 years. Playful and creative are the first words in my mind, but in there should also be fantastic live. A group of nerds banging away at keyboards, guitars and what not is an amazing concept. Had the pleasure of seeing them some 3 years ago in Berlin and I am really looking forward to reliving that experience. (Actually I saw Justus Köncke at that concert as well, which was a big deal I guess, but still).

Funky (in a good way), nodding their heads to prince, these are some of their less played songs:

Hot Chip - Sexual Healing
Hot Chip - Wrestlers

Seriously, the gloves are of now! I could go over and over like a monkey with a minature cymbal about these guys. This is an absolut must at Roskilde - Go, or Hot Chip will break your legs, they will put you down.

Problemés d'amour
Oh, totally forgot to mention one hell of a performance by the almighty Alexander Robotnick at an outdoor festival the other day here in Copenhagen. One of the best nights ever!

I want him to sing at my wedding, it was that good! Until then this song pretty much sums up the summer for me:

Alexander Robotnick - Problemés d'amour (US Instrumental)
Alexander Robotnick - Problemés d'amour (Demo)

Here is a video taken by my lovely friend Iben demonstrating weeding singer extraordinare Alexander singing the above!

Finally, Internetz I haz it! Whoopee, seriously! Anygays I'll jump right into the Roskilde preview post. I'm really looking forward to Santogold, though I see I didn't mention that in my last post. Go figure...

Santi White has delivered one of the best albums of the year. It's a ska / reggae / new wave thing which is hard to put into one box. At certain points it sounds like Blondie, at other times it's M.I.A. The album (including its B-sides and remixes) features appearances or production work from Chuck Treece, Cliffored "Moonie" Pusey of Steel Pulse, Diplo, Freq Nasty, M.I.A, Naeem Juwan of Spank Rock, Radioclit, Sinden, Switch, Trouble Andrew, and XXXchange. That basically translates into one hell of a patch work.

It's hard for me to point out a single favorite track, but 'Shove it' is head-bouncing-tastic and 'Lights out' which sounds like it's lifted from an obscure 80's album by some one-hit-wonder who did a hit single for some film about teenage drama is killer.

Santogold - Shove it
Santogold - Lights out

She is on friday at the festival - get her excellent album here
