One of my favorite things to do when I’ve got nothing else too important to work on is remix random songs. some old, some new, some completely out of left field.
Over the years I’ve done a bunch of these and given them away for free (cause I’m cool like that) but I figured it might be nice to put a bunch of them in a folder and give them all away at once. So, dig in…enjoy these random remixes I’ve made over the last 10 years or so.
1)A dream: Donny Hathaway
2)Lost and lookin’: Sam Cooke
3)Nobody’s fault: Nina SImone
4)Fidelity: Regina Spektor

It’s been out of print for a while now but it is back, in limited numbers.
I had my newest album, “Bells and Whistles” repressed in a special red vinyl. There are only 500 copies. And you can only get it from one place. Bandcamp. It’s only $20 and it should go pretty quickly. So, get on that and order it!
It’s a double vinyl and comes with a download code for a high quality digital version. Enjoy it!
It should also be added, people often ask me “How do i buy your music and you get the highest money %?” Outside of buying it from me directly at a show, Bandcamp it is. So, by getting this record from bandcamp, you’re helping your bro (me) out and that’s pretty cool of you.
I’ve been doing a lot of remixes lately. Most have been of pop songs that you probably think are silly. Well, today is a new day I recently got a chance to work with Brooklyn based group Surrender the spirit and remix their song “Control”. I’ve been friends with these two for a while and it was a pleasure to rework their already awesome song. Check it out! Something new!
If you’d like to check out their original work, you should do that! Right here…right now.
In an effort to both amuse myself and stay sharp, I’ve been dabbling with some remixes of famous pop songs lately. A few weeks ago, it was “Bitch betta have my money” and now, it is The Weeknd’s mega hit “I can’t feel my face”. I can’t stress how fun these remixes are to do. Partially cause it’s just fun to play around with these types of vocals but also cause of the rag eit can bring out of purist music snobs. But ,Seriously. I would do only stuff like this if i had a choice cause I love taking a song and making it something very different.
Anyway, check it out…download it from soundcloud. Tell a friend.
Thanks again to Sam Woolley for the artwork. It’s a good look for me, no?
Are you there, Rihanna? It’s me, Blockhead.
So, every now and then, I get a little restless and feel like putting something out. Anything. A great way to quench this thirst is to remix a random song. For me, it’s kinda fun to take popular songs that people either love or hate and put an entirely new spin on them. I did it with “Hot Nigga”, I did it with “CLassic Man”, and now I’m doing it with Rihanna’s “Bitch better have my money”. In the cases of all these songs, I actually like the originals. I’m sure that thought is appalling to some of you anti-pop music avengers but ,hey, a song is a song and just cause it’s made by millionaires doesn’t mean it’s bad. So, here is my version of “Bitch Better have my money”. Hopefully, Rihanna will hear it, fall in love with me and this will all be worth it.
Oh and it’s a free download on my soundcloud page so go nuts.
Side note, I do love doing these remixes. If you got any ideas of a current song that you’d like to hear me remix (one that has an existing acapella) , give me some ideas. I’m always open to try new stuff like this. Leave any ideas (and links to the acapellas if possible) in the comment section. I might make these remixes a regular thing.
Shout out to Sam Woolley for the artwork.
So, I’ve been working on music lately but nothing that will be put anytime soon. Every now and then, I like to throw some random shit up on soundcloud. You know, just to remind you guys that I’m still a breathing being. Over the last few months, I’ve put up a remix, a joke trap song and two old beats I made over a decade ago that I always liked but never did anything with. This post is just a means of me putting them all in one place (outside of soundcloud).
If you like those old tracks, here’s a link to 15 installments of throwaway tracks I enver used, all made between 95-2004. Free beats, yo!
Also, I threw in a radio show I did where my Buddies Jer (Sir Jarlsberg) and Shannon (from the band Activator) played music and talked shit. The music ranges from stuff we like to an overview of my former group with jer Party Fun action committee to just a bunch of truly offensive songs you probably wouldn’t hear anywhere else. Enjoy!
I’ve been on Soundcloud for less than a year and , honestly, never used it beyond just posting my own songs. While on tour recently, I had some downtime and realized “oh wait…there’s some cool music on here to listen to!”. It didn’t hurt that the computer I travel with, when touring, doesn’t have most of my music on it. So, I decided to make a playlist of song that I found on soundcloud. Songs by people who aren’t me. Rappers I fuck with heavily like Tree, Your Old Droog, Jay Electronica, Sparkmaster Tape, Open Mike Eagle and Michael Christmas. Turns out, Soundlcoud is full of unreleased gems and rarities by all sorts of artists. Nice. So, here’s the playlist I made. Admittedly, it’s all over the place but think of it like an ipod on random.
Also, the songs range from new to old so this isn’t meant to be some cutting edge collection of music.
Also, while you’re there, don’t hesitate to peep my soundcloud page.It’s full of rarities and remixes , many of which are downloadbale for free. Go nuts.
While I got you here, you should also peep the awesome new song/video “Celebrity reduction prayer” by Open Mike Eagle. Dude just keeps getting better and better.
