Watch two bizarre Microsoft recruitment videos soundtracked by Legowelt
Aug 22, 2014 6:11am | Fact Magazine

Danny Wolfers slapped his zany squelch-techno onto the tech company’s ads back in 2008.

Legowelt has drawn our attention to a pair of videos he soundtracked six years ago as part of an ad campaign for Microsoft’s recruitment wing.

The bizarre clips, which were created for the tech giant by creative agency Digital Kitchen, pair Wolfers’ signature analogue ambience (specifically his Jupiter 4 and Roland Juno 6 synths) with a vintage VHS aesthetic in a narrative that sees two young computer programmers get snapped up by Google and Facebook.

“Somehow Microsoft let the concept through,” say the designers, though the second of the videos was “so weird they didn’t know what to do with it.” Watch both below.

Last week Wolfers gave away a pair of brand new techno jams download those and take a tour of the synth fanatic’s studio.

Talib Kweli blasts CNN coverage of Ferguson shooting live on-air
Aug 22, 2014 4:42am | Fact Magazine

Brooklyn MC lets rip at CNN anchor.

Talib Kweli railed against media coverage of the shooting of Michael Brown yesterday in a fiery interview broadcast live on CNN. Reporters have “done a horrible job in getting the story out there the right way,” he told reporter Don Lemon, challenging the news network’s coverage of the protests sparked by the killing of the unarmed black teen.

“We live in a world that’s run by white supremacy and that’s the narrative and language of the oppressors taking over,” said Kweli, pointing out that headlines like ‘Ferguson Calm Until Bottles Fly’ contribute to biased reporting of the protests.

Lemon attempted to defend what he thought was balanced coverage of the events, but the pair ended up getting into a heated argument, with Kweli threatening to walk off camera at one point. Watch the full interview in the video below.

Kweli follows J.Cole, Nelly and Killer Mike as the latest rapper to join the protests in Ferguson. Killer Mike penned an essay on the subject for Billboard earlier this week.


How in the hell could you possibly do that to your children?: Henry Rollins criticises Robin Williams over the actors suicide
Aug 22, 2014 4:38am | Fact Magazine

“I am sure some will strongly disagree with what Im about to say. And I also understand that his personal struggles were quite real. I cant argue with that.

“But I simply cannot understand how any parent could kill themselves.

“How in the hell could you possibly do that to your children? I don’t care how well-adjusted your kid might be choosing to kill yourself, rather than to be there for that child, is every shade of awful, traumatic and confusing. I think as soon as you have children, you waive your right to take your own life. No matter what mistakes you make in life, it should be your utmost goal not to traumatize your kids. So, you don’t kill yourself.”

Former Black Flag singer Henry Rollins pens an article for LA Weekly about actor Robin Williams’ death. Williams died of an apparent suicide on August 11.

Diplo, MNEK and Ariel Rechtshaid are working on the new Madonna album
Aug 22, 2014 4:07am | Fact Magazine

Disclosure collaborator and US hitmaker join Madge in the studio.

Diplo has revealed that producers MNEK and Ariel Rechtshaid are involved in the next Madonna album.

MNEK, the 19-year-old songwriter who’s had a major hand in the sound of the UK charts over the past year through his work with the likes of Rudimental, Clean Bandit and Gorgon City, has teamed up with Vampire Weekend and Sky Ferreira producer Rechtshaid to work out the verses of a song for the pop veteran, and Rechtshaid has also joined Diplo and Madge for their studio sessions.

The Mad Decent boss reveals the collaboration in his Billboard cover feature this week, adding that he and the pop veteran have had three studio sessions of their own so far.

“One [song] is super weird,” says Diplo. “Late one night in the studio we got a little bit drunk and she improvised a little hook and we made a song out of it. I think its going to be a breakthrough if she can manage to get everything together and get it out properly.”

Madonna also sent him a “20-page text” with notes about a bunch of songs he’d sent her, and one of the tracks they’re writing “is on like version 20,” he add. “It went from a piano ballad to a ‘Turn Down for What’-style song, which I didnt like. Now its somewhere in th...
