Death Grips - Government Plates [FREE]

Holy shit where did this come from? Apparently Death Grips dropped a mixtape last week under the radar and without any promotion, which is a stark contrast to the fanfare and controversey that surrounded their last release NO LOVE DEEP WEB. I'm not even going to waste any time listening to this before posting - DOWNLOAD THIS NOW. If you love Death Grips I'm sure this release won't dissapoint and if you're not familiar you might as well start here and work your way backwards. There's not many acts that release high quality music for FREE this often. You can also check out the video for their track Whatever I want (Fuck who's watching) after the download link below:

Godzilla 2014 Design Revealed?

Looks like Gojira has finally stopped teasing and hooked us up with a full body shot! The above image was posted along with a pre-order for a book and figurine set on Amazon today. Since its an officially licensed product we think it's safe to say that this is the actual look of the Godzilla that will star in Legendary's reboot coming out May next year! The book may be geared more for the younger crowd considering there's "lights and sounds" that come with it but I for one am extremely curious how the figure will look! You can pre-order the set (coming out in April) at the link below:

Marvel Teams & Netflix to release Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage & Defenders Mini-Series

image from
Yesterday Marvel and Netflix announced that they will team-up to release four mini-series based on the comic company's characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.  All of which will culminate in a Defenders mini-series.  This is especially exciting considering that these are all mostly street-level super heroes and therefore will possibly be easier (and cheaper) to translate to the small screen.  While Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been doing well on ABC it seems that it hasn't quite hit the ratings they were expecting, so hopefully these VOD series will fare better.  Since it is The Defenders we can only hope that we will see cameos from the likes of Hellcat, Dr. Strange, Valkyrie and more (a cameo from Hulk wouldn't hurt either.)  No word if Bruce Afleck will be reprising his role but we chances are slim (and can we PLEASE get Michael Jai White to play Power Man?!)  You can check out the press release below:

"Burbank, Calif. - Nov 7, 2013—The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel's most popular characters exclusively to the world's leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs leading to a mini-series programming event. 

Led by a series focused on "Daredevil," followed by "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel's "The Defenders" mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters. 

Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking deal is Marvel’s most ambitious foray yet into live-action TV storytelling."

The four 13-episode live action series will launch in 2015.

Craze & Klever: Scratch Nerds 2 [Free Download]

Craze - one of the worlds greatest turntablists, avid drum & bass DJ and the only person to win three consecutive DMC World Championships. Klever - 2000 and 2001 US DMC Champion and world renown DJ. Both are multi-championship holders and members of turntablist supergroup The Allies (which also includes A-Trak as a member.) In 2001 the duo released a scratch tape that was appropriately titled "Scratch Nerds." The popularity of turntablism rose to a climax in the late 90s/early 'oughts, with demand so high for the technical artform that it spawned dozens of tapes and CDs of famous DJs - mostly from the infamous Invisibl Skratch Piklz. In these releases you would hear nothing but scratching for nearly an hour or more on beats ranging from slow as molasses drum & bass to frenzied electro. These were the turntable equivalent of prog rock extended guitar solos and the late night saxophone battles that took place in Jazz clubs back in the day. They were an acquired taste but luckily with the greater exposure of turntablism and rise in popularity of EDM these scratch albums can now have a wider appeal than ever. This is probably why the duo has decided to release a sequel to their scratch tape more than a decade later. Scratch Nerds II is out on Slow Roast Records and features guest cuts from DJ Q-bert, Ruckazoid, D-Styles, A-Trak, Teekoand Chris Karnes (fka DJ Vajra.) That is an INSANE lineup and you would be hard-pressed to find a better representation of scratching anywhere else. You can download it for free from the Soundcloud link below after the video trailer for the mixtape.
