Planning to attend Sonar later this year? Why not live it up at the brand new Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona. I can only hope that we might be able to get to check this place out. Centrally located and designed and furnished by Spanish-Born architect, Patricia Urquiola, the 98-room follows Urquiola’s unique clean and linear theme.
The hotel officially opened in November of 2009.

The mysterious Balearic pop artist, JJ, has been getting a lot of play. Her track, “My Way” features Lil Wayne, sampled from a track he recorded with Trina. Sincerely Yours is giving away the two new tracks from JJ’s forthcoming album “jj nº 3” (on Secretly Canadian).
Fom Sincerely Yours
OK, jj went to malaga to have some fun, get some sun and 2 albums done. it was back in the fall of 2008 when they had both lost their virginity to insanity and were looking for moments of clarity. a plane to spain felt like a reasonable opportunity.
so with money in the bank, nobody to thank, it started with a drank.
and a couple of hours later the on the 29th of september they had felt the first breeze coming in from africa, sweet winds of melodies pure and true. And now, it’s time to give it away to you, of course for free, for you to see how vacation could be. so, let go, cause this is my way.
Catch JJ on Tour this spring with The XX and Delorean.

Underground, deep, funky, techy, and strange…there’s a little for everyone on this single. The single, properly titled, “Remixes Without Words” is out now exclusively at Beatport and it’s charting.

(Physical Education), a collaboration with Rob and Casey Nefcy. Not quite sure what differentiates P.E. from his other personalities, but it’s great addition to his array of many great personalities. Here is a P.E. disco / boogie edit of the late and great soul singer, Teddy Pendergrass.

It’s really interesting when you can watch and artist continue to push the boundaries of their sound. James Curd is that artist to us. James has been putting tracks out on his Greenskeepers Music label for years, but nothing quite like this new single.
On these new tracks James Curd conjures up Daft Punk, Digitalism, Shit Robot, but never looses his GK style.
