The Roots playing a free show to celebrate Guitar Center's new Times Square location (win tix and/or a drumset!)
Jul 24, 2014 1:48pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Guitar Center will be opening a new location in Times Square on Thursday, August 7 at 7 PM. That'll give NYC's tourist mecca 28,000 square feet of new axes to choose from and to show off those new licks you learned when you try 'em out (remember, no Stairway). In celebration of that, The Roots will play next door at the free show at Best Buy Theater that day. Even though it's free, you still need a ticket to go, and there's a few places to pick one up on August 5 (details HERE). We also have two pairs to giveaway. One of those pairs also COMES WITH A LUDWIG DRUMSET, courtesy of Guitar Center. Here's what it looks like when Questlove from The Roots plays it:

Details on how to enter the contest, below...

More vanishing New York. This time iconic, unironic midtown NYC dive bar Subway Inn. Via their Facebook:

Subway Inn Patrons,

As you might know, Subway Inn was established in 1937, and has been proudly serving customers since.

We are sad to inform you that Subway Inn will be closed for business on or about the 15th of August. That's not to say we aren't opening another location. Subway Inn WILL relocate.

Follow Us for further details.


As it says, the neon goes dark sometime next month.

Watch Diplo Show Off His Madonna Dubplate
Jul 24, 2014 1:41pm | StereoGum

Diplo has lately been putting in some studio work with Madonna, which is a pretty cool thing to have on your resume. During one of those sessions, he apparently convinced her to record a new version of “La Isla Bonita,” the 1987 hit that’s right up there with “Open Your Heart” and “Burning Up” and “Frozen” on the “Tom’s favorite Madonna songs” list. This time around, Diplo had her singing over a vaguely dancehall version of the original’s vaguely Spanish beat, and the opening line is different, too: “Last night, I dreamed of Major Lazer.” Diplo had the track pressed up on an exclusive dubplate and played its opening for the BBC DJ Annie Mac, and she freaked out accordingly. Watch video evidence below.


Coolio made a new ad for PornHub, but isn't signing a deal with them ++ there's Weird Al-themed porn now
Jul 24, 2014 1:31pm | Brooklyn Vegan

PornHub has already become a hot (some might say very hot) spot to premiere music videos -- just ask Xiu Xiu and FaltyDL -- and the next person to (sort of) follow suit will be a man of great hair, a misspelled Juggalo tattoo, and a standout on the Space Jam soundtrack, Coolio.

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Coolio had actually signed to PornHub and would be releasing music there, but Coolio since clarified to Rolling Stone that's not actually the case. The video will just be a new PornHub ad that features Coolio in it. Here's what he said when Rolling Stone asked about TMZ's story:

Hold up. They made that shit up completely. I didn't talk to them about shit and they didn't ask me any questions. That shit was a fuckin' promo song for the website. That's it! I met some executive from Pornhub while he was out [in Las Vegas] for the AVNs. We hung out; he was cool. He asked me to do a song for Pornhub and that was it. It's not even my song that I'm putting out. I'm never doing a new album. I'll probably do nothing but singles. I'm as good as anybody out there lyrically and conceptually and can go toe to toe with the best of them throughout history. But I don't know how much longer I'll be doing it. It's not really fun anymore.
And while we're at it, here's another quote from the interview that's too good not to include:
I don't even watch porn, bro. You know why?

Diplo and Madonna remix La Isla Bonita
Jul 24, 2014 1:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this month, we learned that Diplo has been in the studio hard at work on Madonnas forthcoming album, her first since 2012′s MDNA. According to the superstar DJ/producer, the two have already written seven songs together, including what Diplo calls one of his “craziest records”. While they’ve yet to preview anything from the actual album, today we get a taste of what their pop-meets-EDM/dancehall collaboration might sound like with this remix of Madonna’s 1987 hit “La Isla Bonita”.

The rework debuted last night on Annie Mac’s new television show Superstar DJs and finds Madonna swapping the original lines of “Last night, I dreamt of San Pedro” with “Last night, I dreamt of Major Lazer.” Check it out below (via Radio).

And here’s the original for full comparison (and nostalgia!):

The “La Isla Bonita” remix comes just one week after Diplo flipped Lorde’s “Tennis Court”. Listen to that here.

Stream Midlands string-laden new single Before We Leave
Jul 24, 2014 1:22pm | Fact Magazine

Northern techno and house producer Midland returns with his contribution to Phonica‘s ongoing White Label series.

Having released a slew of killer slabs since 2010, Harry Agius is a name it’s hard to avoid if you spend any amount of time clicking through the pages of FACT. The producer made his name following a release on Phonica’s very own label (2010′s ‘Play the Game’ 12″) and now he’s making a return with ‘Before We Leave’.

It’s a lush, pulsing house belter, layering disco strings over the kind of bassline that makes the mind wander straight to Detroit. You can hear the entire track in full below, and the ‘Play the Game’ 12″ is available now via Phonica.

Benoit & Sergio Your Darkness Video
Jul 24, 2014 1:15pm | StereoGum

Right now, the D.C.-based deep-house duo Benoit & Sergio are working on an album that’s being co-produced by Darkside’s Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington. Before they get to that, though, they’ll release their new Your Darkness EP. The video for the thumping, wistful title track is a sort of moving love letter to the city of Tokyo in the 1980s, and it’s full of drab, workaday images the things you might’ve seen there — the crowded commuter trains, the schoolkids in uniforms, the fascinating architecture, the crowded nightclubs where people actually wore suits. Kateb Habib directed the video, and you can watch it below.

Hear Masahiro Takahashis sleepytime love song Toyama Park -
Jul 24, 2014 12:54pm | Chart Attack

Retreat from Tokyo/Montreal's Masahiro Takahashi is a record of collages within a collage of glitchy glockenspiel-core, recorded over 12 years from 2001 to 2013. It's being re-released by Jeunesse Cosmique, and amongst DNTL-coloured tracks like "anti-control --," "Toyama Park -" stands out as a particularly kismetic track, combining the sour bedroom guitarist vibes of Alex G with the anything goes electro of Maltine Records's grab bag.
