Tag Archives: Santogold



Santigold is definitely one of the fastest rising stars in the indie/dance/hip hop game. It’s hard to pull cred in all those circles, but she’s done it. All this despite the fact that she’s had to change her name from Santogold to Santigold because of some C class DJ who’s been calling himself Santogold for some time now. A brooklyn DJ just dropped the new mixtape Southerngold which pairs Santi’s songs with verses from southern rappers. Her propper LP was one of the best albums released last year, and her colab mixtape with Diplo, Top Ranking, is easily my favorite mixtape released in a long while. All this and the countless remixes and guest spots are propelling her to the top fast.

Shows and music below the link…

Gonna be checkin out Spank Rock and N.A.S.A. tonight at Making Time. One of the two should be a party. I’ll let you guess which. Definitely interested to see how N.A.S.A. deals with a feature-less set, seeing as how the glut of featured artists were the only draw to their album. In any rate, dropping some Spank, B-More, and one decent N.A.S.A. jam in your face… Get your weekend on. Bump.

Spank Rock – Backyard Betty

Santogold – Shove It feat. Spank Rock

Panda Bear – Comfy In Nautica (XXXChange Remix)

Justice – Dance (Benny Blanco Mix feat. Mos Def & Spank Rock)

N.A.S.A. – Gifted feat. Kanye, Santogold, Lykke Li

Spank Rock & Amanda Blank – Grit City

Gang Gang Dance – House Jam (XXXChange Remix)

I fell asleep in the sun


I’ve been in a very summery music mood lately.. as you may have noticed. I can feel spring coming in the air and am doing all I can to make it feel like summer in my head. The band Air France has helped me do this better than anyone else. But with only two EPs to their name, I’ve been searching for anything else they’ve had their hands in. They don’t do many remixes, but the ones they do have their signature sound all over them. They’ll do just fine for now…

Au Revior Simone – Afraid You Told Someone About Us (Air France Remix)

Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy (Air France Remix)

And a few other things that help trick your brain into summer mode..

but if these don’t work, drink like five mojitos and try again:

The Avalanches – Summer Crane

From the Since I Left Your LP

High Place – The Storm

From the High Place LP

Animal Collective – Grass

From the Feels LP

The Tough Alliance – Lucky

From the Neo Violence 7″

Saint Etienne – Only Love Can Break Your Heart

From the London Conversations LP

School of Seven Bells – Face to Face on High Places

From the Alpinisms Lp

Jamie Lidell – Wait For Me

From the Jim LP

The Supremes – Automatically Sunshine

From the Gold LP

Santogold – Your Voice
