The Cool Kids, "Tacklebox" Mixtape

The Cool Kids are at it again with their latest mixtape called Tacklebox. There really isn't much I can say about it because you already know what it is. Chuck and Mikey bring that 808 thumpin', hi-hat tickin', ultra dope, retro vibe. Personally, there is only one way I can listen to this mixtape: windows down, sunroof open, seat tilted back, one hand on the wheel with my Ray Bans on, driving slow down the street. So without further adieu, here is the full mixtape compliments of the LA Leakers. Peep a couple of the tracks and download accordingly.

B.o.B Featuring Bruno Mars & Bei Major - Nothin' On You (Villains Remix)

The original version of this song-- you know, the one all over the radio-- is a superbly crafted song, in my opinion. It's actually one of the only songs I can listen to when I tune into JAM'N 94.5 or KISS 108. It's a rare radio hit that actually conveys a substantial message and successfully avoids the usage of pop/ electro synths and auto-tune.

So by now you understand that I like the original song. Great. Well, my friends, I've found a remix that puts an interesting twist to the original. The Villains have flipped this song and added their signature electro-disco-synth-pop vibe without making me want to skip to the next song. This song, like the song in my previous post, has Summer 2010 Mix written all over it-- a must download in my opinion. Trust me, you'll like it. Check it out.

VV Brown - Shark in the Water (Louis La Roche Remix)

Wow. This song is so catchy and likable! VV Brown reminds me of Estelle x Janelle Monae x Jennifer Hudson x Donna Summer. It's got an intangible dance-the-night-away feel, which is perfect for a nighttime gala. Honestly one of the best songs I've downloaded this year, so far. This has Summer 2010 Mix written all over it. Check it out.

Gui Boratto - No Turning Back

Yesterday I was driving to Early Bird to eat brunch with with Molly and Larissa, and this song was playing in my car as were driving back. They really liked and wanted me to send it to them. I didn't really understand why-- I thought the song was alright, nothing special. So last night I gave it another (thorough) listen, and now I'm obsessed with this song.  Brilliant. Minimalistic. Simplistic. Soothing. Thank God I found this song right before finals week. Download this and loop it on iTunes while you study this week. Good luck!

Sammy Adams Kills Bamboozle 2010 in New Jersey

Hey Colby Campus Life, remember when we had the chance to lock down Sammy Adams last month, but you didn't sign the contracts when you were supposed to... Well, this is what we missed out on.

"Cause Sammy Adams what they like..."

DJ Homicide, "The Hangover" Mixtape

This mix is out of control. Seriously. 55 minutes of mind blowing, bass blasting, fist pumping, hip swaying, head nodding, jump-up-and-down-in-the-club-'til-you-pass-out energy. DJ Homicide is a beast. Put this on at midnight and watch the party go crazy. THIS IS A MUST DOWNLOAD.

**Note: the mixtape is one 55-minute track.

2Pac - California Love (Deadmau5 Edit)

So this past weekend I went down to Bowdoin College with some really cool people. On the drive down, Molly was bumpin' this song out the trunk. Needless to say I was vibing pretty hard. This song could potentially shut a party down. Don't believe me? Hit the link and listen for yourself (at 3:15 it gets crazy). I'm just saying that you might as well download it and put it on your iPod for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.
