Still Cool?

I quite like Mark Ronson. I loved "Ooh Wee" when it came out a few years back. Then the production for Winehouse and his own Versions album were very different at the time. But it all got played and copied to death.

When my good friend James e-mailed me the new song and said it was really good I was skeptical. I listened to it and now I can't get it out of my head. It also guests Ghostface for the first time since Ooh Wee (or was Ghostface on one of the Winehouse tracks?). The track bellow sounds like it may have been taken off the radio but gives you an idea.

Bellow is the video for Circuit Breaker which is also on his new album. I am playing the new Zelda at the moment - This is a Fanboy's dream.

Alert!! Good Busta Rhymes Song!!!

Out of all the artists that I listen to on a regular basis I would have to say that Busta Rhymes is the most inconsistent. He either releases a great club tune or something terrible, that is usually a duet (Janet Jackson, Linkin Park). On the occations that he is on his game he produces magic. One time Zane Lowe premiered one of his tracks whilst I was driving - I got so pumped I almost crashed my Car.

The other week I was once again listening to the radio when I hear that the new Busta track is about to be played. What would it be? 100% great or a lame turd. I was in the kitchen so was in no danger of crashing, but decided that I should put down the knife I was using. This was a good move as I thought it was a hot track - Stop The Party. production by Swizz Beat.

I also added the track that I almost crashed my car to.
