The Magic is a Guelph-based duo comprised of the brothers Gordon - Geordie and Evan. They make blissful, extremely catchy electronic pop music that makes me think good thoughts about Disco. They have a new album coming out next week on Half Machine records, and in preparation for it they’ve done something extremely wise in [...]
Ugh, have I ever mentioned that spring in Halifax is mighty god damn depressing? Well if I know you IRL, as the kids say, then surely you know I have, cause I love to bitch about it. Well we’re on our 3rd straight day of a rain & cool temperatures combo, so I could use a pick-me-up song. Here’s a dandy from the legendary Skratch Bastid which features some of the south’s finest flowing over Let It Whip (Whoomp!) from the fantastic Dazz Band. Catch SB on his upcoming Skratch Of All Trades mini-tour, which looks like it’s going to be pretty awesome.
MP3:: Three Six Mafia, Young Buck & 8 Ball & MJG vs Dazz Band - Let It Stay Fly (Skratch Bastid Blend)
I’d been planning to post this song over the holidays, but it got lost in the shuffle. Anyhoo, better late than never I always seem forced to say, but it’s especially true when it pertains to an enjoyable remix like this one here, done by Teen Daze for Vancouver outfit Young Liars.
MP3:: Young Liars - Colours (Teen Daze Remix)
I know pretty much nothing about Work Drugs, other than the assumption that mine would be more enjoyable if I had some. Same goes for Wintercoats - I know not of the musical variety, but am familiar with utilizing one to keep the cold at bay. But I know this: Southern Shores are awesome. And [...]
Fact: Feist was born in Nova Scotia. I believe Beck was born on Mars. Or he believes that, not sure which.
Would you like a remix of Rah Rah’s Henry from T.O. MC & Producer Rich Kidd? You should, because it is awesome. Get this and more on Rah Rah’s new remix album Rahmixes.

Don’t tell anyone, but here’s one surefire caveat to our “Canada-mostly” posting policy: have your shiz remixed by the King Ad-Rock. Here’s his version of Merill Garbus’ Gangsta. Enjoy.
MP3:: tUnE-yArDs - Gangsta (Ad-Rock remix)
In general, most mixtapes have some element of fun to them, but you’re going to have a hard time getting more enjoyment than those done by the best DJ Bedford Nova Scotia ever produced: Skratch Bastid. The man known as Paul Murphy when he isn’t Bastid-izing the Technic 1200′s has to be one of the [...]
Skratch Bastid’s new mix, The Entertainer, is out now and it looks pretty awesome. Here’s another sneak peek here with Look At Hudson Mohawke Now (Skratch Bastid’s Thunder Bay Blend). It’s a high energy, double-time raps affair f. Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown over a Hudson Mohawke beat. Hectic stuff.

Sure, we usually run What’s This, A Party? (word to Jeanette Lapaix) on Saturdays, but we have gathered up a bunch of remixes lately (some from Polaris short-listers…topical!), and the Ack and I have to get mangled at softball tonight, so there’s zero chance I’d have a post done for the AM. So what’s wrong [...]
