Electric Wire Hustle is an “electronic/organic trio” from New Zealand who’ve been getting mad love from across the ol’ blogosphere. I honestly don’t know a lot about them, but this track, called ‘Perception,’ definitely got my attention. Based on a sample from “Inside my Love” by Minnie Riperton (a joint that was best flipped, in my opinion, by Tribe on ‘Lyrics to Go‘), the track has a nice mellow vibe to it:
Also making the internet rounds is a new music video for the J Dilla track ‘On Stilts.’ From his posthumous album ‘Jay Stay Paid,’ the video has a surreal, cartoonish feel that I’m really digging.
Finally, on a bit of an older tip, here’s two videos of producer Kev Brown cookin’ up a hot beat. If you’re not into beat-making they may not appeal to you, but I’d say give ’em a shot, if only to get a glimpse into the incredible creativity that goes into producing a dope beat:
