Totally in love with this dude, Yuksek.
I might be a little late on this, but whatevs.
Haling from Reims, France, Yuksek has crafted some dirty ass remixes of songs og by Mika, The Kaiser Chefs, and Ghostface Killah. His new album, “Away From the Sea” features the love of my life, Amanda Blank, on the track “Extra Ball”. His other tracks are equally wonderful, and totally dance worthy!
CHECK HIM OUT!
below is the link to the actual video, since i cant find any sites to embed it in here. 😦
“Philadelphia-based filth-rock collective Sweatheart specializes in raunchy club/pop with titles like “Fingerbangin'” and “Dreambeaver.” Formed by visual artists Thom Lessner and Rose Luardo in 2005, Sweatheart’s debut album, So Cherri, was released on Tone Arm Records in the summer of 2006. The band further included Amanda Blank by this time, along with their backing band “The Toddlers.” ~ James Christopher Monger, All Music Guide
I’ve loved this band for awhile now. They’re so great. Dress-up bands are great fun and me and some of my broads actually have a project lined up… but that’s a secret for now.
Sweatheart has fun, dancey, vulgar songs. “Finger bangin'” being my favorite. They’ve always got great costume themes too.
Especially love that my future ex-girlfriend, Amanda Blank (rapper/singer), is in this band. she’s so talented. When I saw her live, i was in love. prettiest lady ever, in my opinion.
Here be some flicks and videos.
This dude has a way with words. He’s such a poet. One of my favorites. And his music is amazing. I suggest you take a listen, you’ll learn something.
I remember when I heard him for the first time, around 2004, i believe. I was in my friend’s car, when I lived in Florida. We were on our way home from the bar and he put this fucking beautiful song on. It was, “Tao of Now” by Saul Williams and featuring Esthero (who i love, as well), and I immediately fell head over heels in love with it. Been following his work ever since.
I even love his version of U2’s “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, and I loathe U2, as well as most covers. But this one done did it.
So in conclusion, get up on your Saul Williams knowledge.
