Christmas Vybz

You know that the silent night is around di corner when Vybz Kartel comes up with a new xmas song. This time teaming up with Sheba he's here with "Like Christmas". Maybe not so out there as 2009 with Gaza Christmas when Vybzie was chanting about killing Santa (!), but this time the overuse of autotune mixed with obscene & profane lyrical still makes it a statement for the holiday season. Just plain xmas spirit, seen!

So for your xmas party of choice you can go either for the...

...Clean version


Or try the f****n dutty one for the pure punanny approach

Creature



This tune is the MF jam right now. I mean, easily the best vocal house, since Azari's Reckless (For Your Love). It comes from Hercules And Love Affair singer Kim Ann Foxman (and also Hercules main man Andrew Butler on production).

Creature just re-incorporates everything that's so good about late 80's - early 90's NY/Chicago house music: the big, melodic synth hooks, emotional vocals, pulsating beats. I also read a rumor that this brand new single is recorded with all 1992 gear... The video is perfectly neat and the b-side What You Need is an equally good track. Check em both out (with remixes!) on soundcloud.

(BTW: this video was uploaded to youtube something like 3 hours before this post. Damn, sometimes i can be cutting edge too!)

The Saga continues - Lähiörotat skujaa



SMC Hoodrats are here with their latest video "Lähiörotat skujaa". Honestly, this really raises the bar for finnish rap videos. The video is just stunning, and we have Erä-Koira there spitting once again 30 seconds of killer one-liners. Extra big ups for Notkea Rotta (AKA Nimble Rat) representing eastside and showing how to steal a mountain bike.

Barbra Streisand



Barbra Streisand. Nuff said.

Classic Finnish Reggae Pop


This is really something. One of the most expensive videos made in FInland (!) is a catchy reggae-influenced pop tune from the Pets.

The video leaves you speechless: a combination of Maija Mehiläinen (Die Biene Maja)style of animation and german softporn lookalikes. What more can I say?

This October...

Nunca olvidaré!



[Hurricane G]
Mira Puffy, oyeme papito
Yo estoy cansada de estos hijos de su madre hablando mierda
Tantos envidiosos, tu le tiene que ensenar como es esto okay
Yo choque con uno hesteroso(?) en la calle
Que estaban diciendo que tu te cres que eres el jefe de rap
Y yo le dije raitru mano
El es el enemigo numero uno del publico
Haci que dale pa'lante con mucha energia
Y que se hoda


[Puffy]
Para todo mis guerreros, Latinos caribenos
Enfermo con dinero
Arsa la mano y grita
Viva Bad Boy familia
Yo soy ese negrito, el mas querido por mis enemigos
Yo celebro con los anteojitos(?)
Por que traigo mi estilo rico de carito
Representando con mi goriyo
So mama mi bicho si tu quieres guerra
A mi no me tumban de la tierra
Hecha para atras maricon
Yo soy el campeon, Don Puff Daddy de corazon


[Hurricane G]: (Puffy):
One, one, one, one
(Numero uno del publico)
One, one, one, one
(Yeah P Diddy, espanol)
One, one, one, one
(Ha!)


[Puffy]:
Primo que te pasa contigo
Por que tu quieres ser mi enemigo
Por que soy un millonario
Tengo los mejores carros
Y yo ando
Con mujeres caribenas
Estrellas y muy bellas
Bomba en su mini falda
Meneando toda esa nalga
Por que tengo soldados con almas
Que espantan gangas
Y no le dan nada
So cojelo con cama
Y tranquilo chico
Te lo digo en vivo
El scenario siempre va a ser mio


[Hurricane G]: (Puffy):
One, one, one, one
(Numero uno del publico)
One, one, one, one
One, one, one, one
(I like this one right here)


[Puff]:
Oh I am supposed to speak Spanish
Check this out
Otro unosticia y envidia
Te lo digo esta limita
Esto no es un juego por tu sero
No producer dinero puedo ser muerto
Por que no hay que me doquen
Me oyen en el radio con este jote
Yo no me preocupo, soy puro
Y yo amo todo mi publico
Raitru mano tengo un hijo de Jesus
Brillando en la luz
Con mucho lujo y mucho jugo
Y te lo juro, yo te busco
En el nuevo milenium
Yo me muevo como el viento
Representando en cual quier pueblo
Hasta luego y punto
Soy el papichulo conquistando el mundo


[Hurricane G]: (Puffy):
One, one, one, one
(Uno)
One, one, one, one
(Uno)
One, one, one, one
(Yeah Hurricane)


[Hurricane G]:
Yeah asi mismo papito, eso es lo que yo estoy diciendo
Tu le tienes que ensenar a estos mamahuevos
Como es que va la vaina, tu sabes
Por que ellos se pasan hablando mierda
Hablando de lo que tiene uno
Pero lo que no tienen ellos, tantos habladores
So celosos que son un poquito malo
Quieren guerra, pues toman un guerra maricon
Bad Boy de corazon

This band never stops to amaze me. Last album it was Lil Wayne as a featuring artist, now it's this weird Lost character obsession.

More is more


4 guitars is more than one. Remember that kids.

Don't f**k around with love


If the story's correct, the Blenders made a version to their "Don't play around with love" in the 50's, by changing the "play" with the "f-word". However, it was not released officially back then, which makes perfect sense, thinking of the culturally open minded good 'ol days. This version came out in 1971.

I think that the main point cuts through much better in the alt version: "Well, take a little advice from me..." This just calls for sampling, don't you think?

Just a sidenote: I wanted to name one of my punk bands as "Blender" in the early 90's. We decided not to go with Blender, because it was (and still is) just a bit too generic name. Blenders then again is pretty much like Baseballs - generic, idiotic and kinda cool in that sense.

Amish Hipsters


Now that the Flow Festival has started here in Helsinki all media including Nyt-liite is talking about hipsters. That's nothing new, as we have seen all kind of funny things, like The evolution of hipsters and Look At This Fuckign Hipster to mention a few.

One aspect has still not been analyzed to the fullest. If you look at the pic above, you will find many similarities to the classic Amish look. I mean once the beards reach that magnitude and the suspensers are added and topped with a pork pie hat... --> you must agree it's friggin' amish.

This has by the way nothing to do with the OG finnish "Amis" -look, which basically was pre-hipster look in the 80's/90's with the moustache (amisviikset) and the trucker caps.

So Stoked!



Tomorrow, live at Flow 2010!

Deeper with Jacques and Nachos



This new Nacho Lovers tune Deeper is crazy good. But on top of that, these canucks have made the awesomest video of the year. Clips from vintage Jacques Cousteau footage that go so well along their blissful, nautical electronic soundscapes. You gotta love this.

This thing is out on Fool's Gold records, with brilliant remixes from fellow canadians like Azari & III, CFCF and Mike Mind. Go n giddit!

Dipset is back - and raving?



You already knew this: The Diplomats are back together and apparently coming up with a new album pretty soon. Here's the first single (or something like that) called Salute. It's proper Dipset, like you knew: Cam's, Jim's and Santana's swagger is dumb and arrogant as ever.

But what's up with the 90's rave/gabber/happy hardcore -synth over there? Pretty crazy s**t..

Henry & Glenn Forever


I was never that much into comics, I mean I read the Mickey Mice, The Lucky Lukes and the X-Men when I was a kid, but didn't like collect zines too seriously or anything.

But recently this comic strip caught by eye:

Henry & Glenn Forever.

The basic storyline is explained at the front of the zine:

"Henry and Glenn are very good 'friends.' They are also 'room mates.' Daryl and John live next door. They are satanists"

What makes this pretty cool is the fact that Henry is Mr. Rollins, Glenn is Mr. Danzig and Daryl & John are Misters Hall & Oates.

Like whoa.

Do the Cocomotion with Dennis



Cocomotion gets deep into summer 2010! In june i'll have Schmami from Shine 2009 (and also behind some AWESOME solo tracks...) as a guest DJ at Cocomotion. So i thought, who'd be better to start off the summer season than a picture good old Dennis Wilson, the absolute dudest of them Beach Dudes. Rumour has it that no other rock star dated more cute chicks in the 70's than Dennis.

Put on your Sebagos and take a sip of da Pina. Pacific Ocean Blue vibes run this mofo!

Studio geek fantasies



How friggin cool is this???? Brings out the materialist in me. But actually this dude built it himself, so i couldn't really buy this even if i had the money. Sad.

Another bad news is, the Kritons are out of a studio right now. The wall in our old one was cracking to pieces, so they have to do something about it... and NO, it's not breaking because of us making too much noise. So right now we can only dream about stuff like this...


PS. i just noticed that is is the 666:th post in the Kriton blog... spooky!

Jopo comes back


According to latest news, they're gonna start manufacturing Jopo-bikes once again in Finland. So the subcontractors in Taiwan must find some other way to make their living from now on.

I'm not sure if this will change the quality of the bikes, because they had no challenges in that area, but this is an awesome thing for the brand image, because not that many bikes are manufactured here in the Nordics, let alone Finland.

F****ng magnets, how do they work?
