GO KYPSKI!

October 1, 2008

NIKE

That’s the detail of the tongue label on C-Mon & Kypski’s limited edition SB Dunks…Here’s the details on Kypski’s new mix.

Our Dutch turntablist friend Kypski is the man, and he’s got this new mix that’s full of the joints we play in the office from MGMT, Digitalism, Boreta, Booka Shade & more. The cuts are crazy and remind us of when hip hop mixtapes had real DJ’s who could scratch. For good measure, we’ve added this youtube clip so you can see this guy in action. I don’t think he made this mix sitting at the drumset but who knows.

Can’t wait to have these guys back in the city and if you don’t know about their band, look them up under BAND WATCH and you’ll find out we’ve been friends with them for a bit.

This DOWNLOAD LINK is going to expire so hurry up and get the mix!

BAND WATCH: C-MON & KYPSKI

April 7, 2008

LaMae has the best description for our friends from Amsterdam..
“It’s like Gogol Bordelo, Hot Chip, Electro/Hip Hop with 4 guys from Amsterdam and they all sing.”
(I would also add DJ Revolution and the Beach Boys.)

C-Mon and Kypski have one of the most entertaining live sets I’ve ever seen. Whistles and mpc’s, drums with turntables on top of them and a cast of 4 characters from the Netherlands who have a limited edition Nike Dunk designed for them.

The set ranges from heavy rocking out, to throwback hip hop breaks and turntablism, to something with farts and awkward key stabs. It’s really hard to explain actually, you kind of have to see it and lucky enough they’re out on tour with Lotus for the next few weeks.

Plus, we love the music videos.
