So I’m coming down from the hangover of the century. I mean the hangover where you have a forty degrees worth of fever, hallucinate and wake up wearing nothing but socks, soaked with sweat, having changed your pillow for a pair of jeans, not really knowing where you are.
I didn’t go out yesterday, but Friday. Me and fellow dbty-member Linus had a plan: getting only moderately drunk, being in bed before twelve, for a focused Saturday of hard work.
The plan failed.
So five o’clock Saturday morning I’m sitting half naked on a fucking truck screaming Please Forgive Me by Bryan Adams my hands full of flowers.
Four hours later I wake up and fall straight in to my living room table.
Now I’m starting to fell better, however. The only thing that got me through this horror-filled hung over week-end was the soothing music of Exploding Hearts
Please Gudmundur, give me more soon, release a record or, I don't know... This is to beautiful not to listen to every day for the rest of my life.
Exploding Hearts – Leaving Love, Chasing Light
Exploding Hearts – There’s Only One Thing
(Btw: Thanx to Joel Stockman 4 the awesome Exploding Hearts photo).

If you're like me, your so hungover today that you dont wanna listen to music at all. Never has the sound of silence sounded so good as today...
But who would I be posting my weekly post on a music blog without serving some music?
Ill start of with a digg deep down in the blues pile:
B.B King - Chains and Things
And if you're not like me (your head doesnt feel like it will explode) and you, maybe are getting ready to party (if so, go back to this post tomorrow and you will understand what im talking about) then you might enyoy this (but you should listen to the B.B King track first):

A tree can be long, a tree can be short,
It has branches and leaves, of all different sorts,
A tree can be used for several things,
Trees can be friends, like in The Lord of The Rings,
Trees can be used, in combination with a stapler,
That’s when you turn trees in to paper
These phallic symbols of nature that we call trees,
Is also the home of squirrels and bees
Trees can be singers that are awesome and cool
Trees are so awesome, trees fucking rule!
Trees a rad, dammit it’s sick!

It's still some kind of girls only week. So let's get this (girl)party started!!
When you are tired of New Young Pony Club this band is going to be the next big thing. Dragonettes had the great singel I Get Around included on the fourth Kitsuné Maison compilation. It was fantastique!
Now! Take on what ever shoes you are comfortable dancing in and listen to their semi-new singel remixed by our french favourites Alan and Fred. It's, as always with these two gentlemen, an instant banger.

I know this guy, who consider himself having a good taste in music. Sometimes when out at clubs, and the right person ask, he might even say he's a dj. The only obstacle in this mans life revolved around not having enough money to buy all 13 records at the vinyl store, and he was left with no other option that to leave one behind. Offcourse the 13th record was furious and lay a curse over our friend, that one day he would sting him self on a turntable-needle and fall in to a deep (musical) sleep filled with cheesy, easy digestible music that nor progress or provoke, and never leave much effect on the listener. (But the radio keeps playing it so it must be good right?) And our friend stayed in this musical-trance for a 100 years until a prince(ess) named Amanda Blank would awaken him.
Thank you Amanda, for arousing me from this sound-dazedness.

Felix Da Housecat is back! He just recently dropped his new single 'Like something 4 porno' - pretty lame but backed up with remixes by Teenage Bad Girl, Armand van Helden AND Kris Menace. Sick! But he saved the best for the last track 'Pretty Girls Don't Dance (What Should I Do?)'. Give me a remix of this! Now!

We’re of course thrilled that Doris Lessing at last won the Nobel Prize in Literature, or to put it the way DBTY-member Linus did when he heard the news:
“Fucking finally, I mean she’s been puttin out them books for like years now, where’s the champaggon at?”
Anyways: Congratulations Doris, hope to see you at the banquet!
This of course led to the idea of following Horace’s example and keep giving kudos to those women who’s been putting it down for long time, and who deserves some cred.
So, without further a due, we give you one week of our favorite female artists: not because they’re females, just cause they’re awesome artists!

First time I heard Charly Greane was on the Orgasmic tape: Rise and Rise of Orgasmic, Super F passed it to me about a year a go.
The first song of the tape: Stade De France, was fucking fantastix, Charly Greane featured with Cuiziner, and it was the bomb.
Then I kind of forgot about this French dude screaming “Okee!” all the time, claiming “We make music for the big shows like Jonny Halliday”, and “I’m the new Bertand Cantat, with a cap”.
So then yesterday, I ended up on his myspace by accident. We started talking and I was able to hustle two dope tracks from him. Charly Greane’s carrying on a tradition of French rap that DBTY totally dig.
Check him out, and don’t forget his words of wisdom, if you ever go to BX: “Okee, dans ma ville, on aime les gros bouls!”
Club Bordeaux – Charly Green
Fais Trembler – Charly Green
Btw: We’re now six @ DBTY – Martin will be starting for us, posting Wednesdays, we’re promised lots of House and texts about awesome technical stuff. Sounds awesome.
This is teh line-up:
Mondays: Super F
Tuesdays: Shoré a.k.a Garden Dwarf
Wednesdays: Martin L

This time of the year, when it pisses outside twentyfourseven and the noise of constant rain against the ground makes it impossible to think happy thoughts, all you really wanna do is get really, really drunk (the ultimate is to get really, really drunk at home, so you dont have to get all soaked on the way to the bar)...
Leela James - Rain
Honestly, I cant understand why this girl isnt even bigger than she is. This voice is killing!
I got this one from my girlfriend a long, long time ago:
Astrud Gilberto - The Gentle Rain (rjd2 remix)
If it wasn't for the fact that shes got a fucking awesome music taste (like mine, of course) we could be all cheesy and call this our song, but I think we got a biiig bunch of those allready..
The Congos - Food For The Rainy Day Classic one. Not much more to say... Falsetto reggae from the golden days...
Miri Ben-Ari - Sunshine To The Rain Feat. Scarface & Anthony Hamilton
I cant decide whether this song is totally sucky or not (maybe even almost good?). Miri Ben-ari is, according to google, "The Hip-Hop Violinist" (that is sucky!) and the beat is a weird, jumpy violin-loop, but Scarface is a tight rapper and Anthony Hamilton got one of my favourite neo-soul voices, so I'll let it slip..

Yesterday some of the DBTY-crew went to the Vice-party in Stockholm. I how ever, did not go there. Why? One then asks herself. Why did you say no to free drinks, a Dizzee Rascal-concert and a Dj-set by Turkdisco? Why on earth would you do that?
Well, I had to work.
On one side its really cool because I get paid to do an interview with Greg Rizzer (Lead Designer on The Simpsons Game), an article on Neneh Cherry and yet another one on Jaqee. These are all awesome people that I actually am given money to talk to.
On the other side I can no longer spell to spraetime… Sparrtme. S.P.A.R.E.E.T.I.M.M….
You know the thingy with time that you can use as you want.
It was probably wonderful.
So what keeps me up in this darkness? Last week it was Boys Noize that got me through.
Today it’s the beautiful new DBTY-look that puts a smile on my face every time I look at it.
Hughe thanks to my brother Linus for fixing us up look sharp!

I’ll put up some Dizzee-songs today, too ease the pain from missing the showcase last night, and as a dedicas to the Big L.
This is just pure ardcore:
Oldskool (Pussyhole) – Dizzee Rascal
This is pure euphoria:
Wannabe – Dizzee Rascal
And ya’ll know this one already:
Sirens (Komatrohn Remix) – Dizze Rascal

And for the love of music, I thought I'll be your own personal music bartender for a second. We start of with a slow, smooth White Russian and finish it of with an Old Fashion, a whiskey bomb that for sure will wake you up. Lets start:
First out: a big fucking guy with a sweet fucking voice; Tank.
Tank - Coldest
From the new album sex, love & pain btw...
and then, we put it up a notch, raise the volume, pump the base up on those big-speakers and play this banger by all our favorite rudebwoy Mr Kartel:

Now and then my dad calls me about going on a fishing trip, nothing special, just some father son stuff i guess. We've been doing it as long as i can remember. We rarely have much to speak about during these trips and the lake mälaren in Stockholm is way to piloted to actually hold any fish. So we just sit in silence for a few hours. Lately I've been bringing my mp3player, to do my home work. It's a perfect spot to do some one-ear listening, I'm talking about that mainstream, top 40 releases listening.
This day in particular, was like any day other, no fish, some Mike Jones, Project Pat, that I'm So Hood remix with a line-up that would fill this hole page and a few more goodies, everything was going smooth until this happens.

Fashion comes from France and so does Pain Chocolate. For those of you who don’t know it’s this crispy bread that’s filled with warm creamy chocolate inside. I used to stuff my face with it every morning when I was in France this summer.
This Friday I went to this awsome party in a fashion office where I drank a lot of cheap beer and met a hermaphrodite called Mysterious. I also met a group of frenchies!
These mec francais actually knew some english and convinced me and my friend Fatty Murder to go with them to an ‘after’. Natrually on my way there I started saying everything and anything I know in french, and the first thing that came out of my mouth was: “je suis un pain chocolate chaud” (This frase is something that me and other members of DBTY always joke about since Super Fitta used that as a line to hook up with a swedish girl in Stockholm.)
Now one of the frenchies said “Yes! I am Kirikoo and we are Pain chokolat Crew, thats us”.
I remember laughing my loud and obnoxious laughter when hearing his statement then thinking Wow, Kirikoo, what an awesome ninja name and then finally replying: “ Well I’m pain chocolate chaud and my friend and I together form the ‘Oreo Crew’.”
We’re suddenly standing outside Spy Bar and I say “we’re not going in here c’est tros nulle and my friend fatty murder elle est tros bu, but let’s meet up later and get défense”.
These three fraises (meaning: It’s worthless, she’s drunk, and stoned) pretty much sum up my whole week in France and I remember walking away feeling so proud that I had learned such usefull fraises this summer. How awesome!
The next day I’m checking out the Caliroots blogspot to se the opening hours for their sneaker swap and I find this picture of the frenchies from the night before. Above it is a Flyer for the club ‘Buck and Grind’ where apparently Kirikoo and Pain Chokolat Crew will be performing.
Now how crazzzzzy is that?! These guys were for real! C’est tros bizare! Too bad i was too hungover to see the performance.
Here’s a song about the yummie bread, and a song from another group thats cool and french.
Joe Dassin - Les Petits Pains au Chocolat
Boys Noize - Deny
