Heatbeat, my life could use a little “Extra Bacon”; how about yours?

Heatbeat was first introduced to me earlier this year. The Argentinean duo’s “Rocker Monster” came at me through my car speakers with an aggressive edge. Matias Faint, 26, and Agustin Servente, 25, are the masterminds behind this DJ/Producer combo from Buenos Aires. In hearing this first single they started to peak my interest.

Then they gave my life a little “Extra Bacon”. This EDM banger has been stuck in my head like the thought of bacon is every morning when I get up. Any track that is named “Extra Bacon” better live up to all the hype because everybody could use some more bacon in their life to make it complete. The very thought of bacon is making me hungry for bacon and I need more… Bacon.

So check out their track “Extra Bacon” and continue to watch this unbelievable duo rise to electronic greatness.

Album Update: P.O.S., We Don’t Even Live Here

Good music keeps oozing from the pores of the Hip-Hop Heavyweights over at Rhymesayers Entertainment. Aesop Rock just released another stellar album last month; Brother Ali is releasing his new album in September, and now it has been announced that P.O.S. will release his fourth studio album - We Don’t Even Live Here - on October 23rd.

According to the press release I read, We Don’t Even Live Here will favor more futuristic beats influenced by the Euro club scene. Even though P.O.S. is going to keep his Hip-Hop roots grounded by collaborating with regular names like Cecil Otter, Lazerbeak, Mike Mictlan and Sims, We Don’t Even Live Here will feature beats from artists like Boyz Noise & Housemeister – DJs who make dance-oriented music. Fans can also expect to hear Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) lending his vocals to the album.

This will be Stef’s first album since he released the masterpiece Never Better back in 2009; three years is a long wait, so I’m definitely stoked to hear some new solo material is coming out. I’ve been a huge fan of everything he’s done so far, and I think that his strategy to shake things up could pay off big dividends.

Recently, Stef performed a live version of the lead single from We Don’t Even Live Here - “Bumper” – for Pitchfork City of Music, and if it’s any indication of what the album’s going to sound like, then listeners are in for a very interesting and intense ride. I know I can’t wait to buy my ticket.
