Blind I faithful, I almost didn’t do it. I looked at the new music that the world had to offer, at our submissions, and I just didn’t feel like what was presented was strong enough to make it to GO! You know me, them ordinary things don’t move me. I need some shit straight out the movies, word to Mighty Mos. So, being the critical mind that I am, I scoured my music database for what felt right, refreshing, and in taste with my current mood of happiness, hard work, and the chase of perfection. A parallel universe, you might say. So without further ado or delay, enjoy the June 2011 version of Blind I Says GO! and let me know how you like the shit! Cause I love it!

Yessss. This is exactly what the music world has been missing. new Santigold! I played her eponymous debut until I became exhausted of it, gave it a break and came back to it recently. So of course I was pleased when her new single and mini interview popped up on Jay-Z’s Lifeandtimes site.
Her new single, “Go” was co-produced by Santi, Q-Tip and Switch (with Nick Zinner on guitar) and features Karen O. from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. This artwork kind of reminds me of a wicked twist on the Roots’ Things Fall Apart cover. Can’t wait to see her perform this song live.

The final installment of the No Knows themes & what have you that I did for 20X has come. I set out with a mission, & mission accomplished. It was hard, it was challenging but overall, it was a fun journey through my favorite artists catalogs throughout 20X. Whether it was the str8 up heat to kick start it all, or February’s Dilla, March(ing) 2 the Beats, April’s Love , May’s Stereolab, June’s Portishead, July’s Stevie, August’s Busta Rhymes, September’s Radiohead, October’s Outkast or November’s Slum Village, I hope that one of this years NKD’s complemented your freshness. For the heads who peep the cover, you already kNOw off top, that for December, I decided to close it out with one of my favorite groups of all time, thus, No Knows Jamiroquai. The british founders Jay Kay, Toby Smith, Stuart Zender, Nick Van Gelder & Wallis Buchanan have supplied the ears with a new school version of funk meets electronic disco via the didgeridoo (commonly found within most of their earlier works as the main bass groove). If you aint knowing, then this NKD will hip you to the game, for those that DO know, you will not be disappointed. I put all the ones for us heads. In parting, as always… eNjOy & see you on the next idea I come up with for NKD 2011.

My brotha I-Ced put me on to this dope mix from the good homies DJ Cuzzin B & Jay*Clipp who basically, made a seriously dope mix of all the artists I love & will love.

TL & DL to follow…
I know… I know… I know. It’s about damn time. & you’re right. It is. My bad for the delay. No excuses (even tho I got em). Last time I’ll be late for the rest of the year (only 1 month left jackass… not that difficult). Anyways the long awaited No Knows Outkast that was supposed to drop on the 15th of last month is finally here. It’s filled with all my faves & was a batch & a half to put together. As for this month I felt taking it to the slums, thus, No Knows Slum Village, same formula as Kast, same difficult task, all executed for the love of your support & your need for dopenaassss. TL’s & DL’s you know where…eNjOy!
Aw shit yesterday was Friday wasn’t it?
KANYE WEST – CHAIN HEAVY [DOWNLOAD]
Well the good folks over @ Bonafide Magazine have been putting out a series entitled Bonafied Beats, and for Vol.6 they called on the talents of Luke Vibert. The schitt is like hoppin in a DeLorean of 1.21 gigawatts to late 98/early 99. In Bonafide’s words…
Fresh from carbonite, the next mix in the Bonafide Beats series is certified vintage, having been in storage since Prince was partying in 1999. Washing up on the silicon shores of Luke Vibert’s hard drive some ten or more years since it was made, this mix captures the vibrancy of underground hip-hop on the cusp of the new millennium. With the ‘golden-era’ fast disappearing in the rear-view mirror, here we see one-time independent outfits such as Company Flow and Slum Village take a breath and prepare to dive deeper, making way for Fiddy and co. to lurch in and plunder all that glamour and gold offered up to the new millennium ‘gangster’ rappers.
