Some of you may be using your holidays to light the menorah, trim the tree, or eat an obscene amount of peppermint bark but Fatboy Slim makes us mixes. Last year, Norm released a free mix to celebrate Christmas cheer and we’re taking another listen this year as a lead-up to the 2012 holidays. This is a DJ mix in the traditional sense; Norm throws in the old and new, telling a story suited for both commercial and underground ears along the way. We’ve got Queen, Riva Starr, Beardyman, Azealia Banks, Afrojack, Bart B More & Harvard Bass, Grandmaster Flash, and Moby all woven together into a neat little Fatboy Slim tapestry of sound. It’s high energy and never misses a beat — take a listen for yourself below.
Rudimental dropped a new track on their Soundcloud page yesterday, and we couldn’t be happier it features Angel Haze. “Hell Could Freeze” is one part RnB soul jam and one part syncopated house track. Angel, alternating between spitting dirty rap lines and sickly sweet tones, also shows her diversity. Think of what would happen if Delilah and Azealia Banks made a baby and you’ll get the swagger of Angel Haze.
