Alright, this is pretty dope. Icona Pop sample classic pop tune It’s My Party and created this collaboration with New York rapper Zebra Katz (the fella with that super infectious track Ima Read from early last year, if you recall). I’ve watched Icona Pop cover It’s My Party before live, which was loads of fun. Add in Zebra Katz, and it becomes an updated, even catchier version. The futuristic production does wonders on the track. Can we nominate Icona Pop for one of the most fun electronic pop acts, yet? Icona Pop’s long awaited debut album This Is… Icona Pop finally drops on September 24! Yay!

Zebra Katz x I Am A Camera

September 29, 2012

UK electronic duo made a sick remix of already sick (but very polarizing) dark and twisted Ima Read by Zebra Katz. The track features Njena Reddd Foxxx on very Azealia Banks-like vocals. Since the track first dropped, this style of hip hop/rap has become so much more popular. Stream both the dance remix and the awesome original cut & video below. Again. Sick…

OFFICIAL VID: Zebra Katz – W8WTF

August 31, 2012

Zebra Katz is back with a new dark video. The New York rapper was very polarizing when his track I’ma Read dropped early this year. Some people hated I’ma Read with a fervor. There’s no denying the artist has a sound that stands out and also fits the general penchant for dark, atmospheric music these days. It’s creepy and haunting. In fact, W8WTF is pretty much witch house with some distorted flow, which makes perfect sense to me. I’ve often explained to friends that witch house (or drag or darkwave or whatever you prefer to call it) sounds very much like hip hop but much more chopped and screwed, or much more glitchy, or with distorted vocals or no vocals entirely. Stream W8WTF and its video below… it’s sick, super thick, syrupy stuff.

You know what? I’m going to go off on a tangent with the Yelle. What better time than now to share Yelle’s new 2012 summer mix? Are you ready to get down and party even though it’s only Tuesday? What surprised me a lot was the first song on the tracklisting… Zebra Katz’s Ima Read. I shared that tune sometime last year, or was it very early this year, but I knew it was going to be absolutely polarizing (and it was). There is something incredibly infectious about it, so I guess it’s caught on! And now that I think about it, with the huge Azealia Banks explosion, this sound is right on top of what’s in right now! Yeeeeep. I knew it was worth sharing. 😉 The rest of the tracklisting is all pretty awesome too. And come on, Yelle throwing it down can never go wrong, right?

1. Zebra Katz – Ima Read (ft. Njena Reddd Foxxx)
2. Solomun – Daddy’s Jam
3. Sepehr – Apple Bottoms
(#2 again)
4. Hot Chip – Night and Day
5. MAM – Modern Heat
‪6. Theophilus London – Last Name London (Brodinski Remix)‬
7. Bag Raiders – Snake Charmer
8. Slagsmalsklubben – Jake Blood (Tony Senghore Remix)
‪9. Sinjin Hawke – Crystal Dust‬
10. Para One – Every Little Thing
11. Kindness – SEOD (Zdar Dub Mix)

I’m very confused and having a hard time deciding if this is brilliant or stupid. The hypnotizing beat and haunting drone is incredible. The lyrics are very questionable at times (particularly that 1st period, 2nd period section). Then again, maybe the minimalist, easily offensive, tongue in cheek (intended???) lyrics are actually… sarcastically good. Either way, this is definitely very unique. Ah yes, and let me warn you, major cussing ahead. 😉 I know you’re going to either love or hate this with a passion.
