Cocoa Tea and Riker's Island


History lesson #1. Cocoa Tea's been around since the 80's and he's one of the abc's of reggae, dancehall an DJ culture, so know you know.

History lesson #2. Riker's island is the classic from Cocoa Tea, and it tells a story of an NYC prison where Tupac and Lil Wayne have served some time. Crime doesn't pay, so you know now.



History lesson #3. The segregated unit at Rikers for LGBT prisoners was closed down in 2005. I guess Cocoa Tea was not singing about this unit..

The Most Badass Alphabet Ever


There's no way my lazy ass can be bothered to post them all but this honestly must be the the most awesome alphabet ever!

New rules!

SHINE 2009 - NEW RULES from SHINE 2009 on Vimeo.



A great new song and video from a great new finnish outfit, Shine 2009. Shine 2009 is a duo consisting of Schmami, a way nice producer and DJ in his own right and Mikko from Regina. A lot of 1990's stuff has been circulating in the Kriton blog lately, and this is is mos def 1990's influenced. Be sure to also check out their first video Higher.

Sunny side up, please



I know (or i think) Hennyman blogged about this track a while ago already, but i had to come up here with the video too. It's a seriously nice one. And makes you CRAVE for a nice breakfast, don't it.

Is it the time already...



... to go back there?

Cocomotion goes Spotify!



Mixtapes are, like, the past, right? Spotify is, like, today, right? Naah, just kidding.. But since mixtapes can be a pain in the ass to make, I decided to go halfway and make a Spotify playlist for Cocomotion club. Here it is, fulla balearic goodness, dance jams and pop gems. Next time, I promise to make a mix.

Billy Rode Bikes Too!


Believe it or not, ZZ Top has always been a great source of inspiration for us Kriton Boys, and as we're pretty hardcore into riding bicycles too, this picture really warms our hearts.

The Electro Wars



Hrmmm.. a new documentary about the rise of electro, bloghause and the noughties club scene? Why not. Might seem a little bit outdated at some parts already, but still looks quite interesting.

And the albums called "Skinny Jeans And a Mic"

But why does this sound so much like the Cool Kids?

Teh Funneh Immortal
























All right, in case this is too blasphemous for you, you could also check this out with the proper soundtrack. Gotta love that wizard hat AKA 'velhon hiippalakki'!

Manhooker



Here it is - the new Azari & III single. And what a great title it has: "Manhooker". In finnish we have the expression "mihu", which pretty much describes a manhooker. So this goes out to all them mihus all around the the globe!

BTW: this song is so much darker and moodier stuff than what the previous Azari singles Reckless (For Your Love) and Hungry For The Power led us to expect from them. Awesome, claustrophobic stuff for the darkroom parties, full of mihus.

Love You Down x 3







I came across Meshell's brand new cover version of my absolute favorite 80's slow r&b jam, Ready For The World's Love You Down.

So i had to give you three versions: Meshell goes really deep, heavy and artistic with her vision of this, while INOJ gave you the Miami Bass-influenced, dancefloor-happy treatment (1997, check out the cool campus video with the sistas with them awesome sorority t-shirts... AND a up-and-coming Lil Jon deejaying at 2:50). And of course the classic original from 1986.

It's a shame they didn't have DJ Technics' way cool b-more remix (called "Girlfriend") on YouTube though.

Gotta go


This sooo reminds me of the Realest Song but it's still a banger. And those synth arpeggios... Nice. I guess Sean Kingston hasn't got that much to add to this riddim though.

Konshens really has had a lot of killer tunes lately, Good Girl Gone Bad, Winner, Realest Song... He's mos def an artist to follow.

One more sleeper hit


At first this seemed like an ok song, but it really grows after time. Kinda cool mixture of one drop / lovers chorus and Busy's more hectic vocals. Luv it.

Freestyle Track of the Day // Bettina: Destiny



Like whoa!

From the comments section:

"I love how you put together these videos. I wrote, arranged & produced "Destiny" I'm also the "Ah Shut Up" voice in the Loqueria mix, my friend does the Fix The House voice. We were actually fixing a house before we got to the studio. LOL That's how we came up with that."

Warrant issued for former Warrant singer



More info here
Although crimes or accidents are no fun, I couldn't help myself picturing these headlines:

"Former Poison singer sentenced to death by poison"
"White snake attacked former singer of Whitesnake"
"A giant ratt bit former singer of Ratt"
"Scorpions surrounded the former singer of Scorpions"

Bigga Choon Alert: K-OS: I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman



Featuring Saukrates(!) & Nelly Furtado. Gonna be BIG. Noddin' my head to this on repeat already. Also, waiting for Jamaica to discover this and hit us up with nice versions, just saying...
