AiMT has been a ghost town for two months, but the hiatus is ending now in a big way. The next post will be the debut of something BIG for this site, mainly because it will provide content on a regular basis in a format that will be a lot easier for me to stay on top of regularly and naturally.
While I'm putting the finishing touches on it, I thought I'd share some new heat by two of AiMT's all-time favs, Diplo and Azealia Banks. (By the way, if you didn't catch the video for Diplo's new single, "Express Yourself," please do so now.)
Here's a bonus, which I posted back in January, but the SOPA blackout kept us from getting our precious aggregated web love:
BONUS: Azealia Banks - "212 (607 Flip)":

Back in June, Little Rock's premier hip-hop duo earFear dropped Art Class, which AiMT has proudly sported as a streaming widget on the side bar. Around that same time of the album's release, earFear member and AiMT regular 607 sent me his marvelous flip of Diplo and Douster's "On!," which you can peep below. Upon receiving it, I tucked the MP3 away in some obscure folder and pitifully forgot about it. Meanwhile, earFear has managed to complete another full album, which is slated to drop on Halloween. It will be earFear's third album in the last 10 months.
What I want you to take away from this story is that it takes me longer to post an MP3 than it takes earFear to complete an entire album. So to celebrate earFear's beyond-diligent work ethic (and AiMT's non-existent time management skills), here is a long-overdue selection from their awesome (and still new) album, Art Class. You can cop the album for $10 over on their Bandcamp page.
And here's the "On!" flip:
BONUS: Diplo & Douster - "On! (607 Flip)"
And here's a full version for any DJs who may want to play it out. Watch for earFear's next album on Halloween!

Sunday Girl has a mere seven comments on her MySpace and under 800 plays. Yet somehow she's already commissioned remixes from Diplo and Russ Chimes along with an oh-so-posh video directed by Elisha Smith-Leverock. Of course, that may say more about MySpace's decline than Sunday Girl's popularity, but in any case, she's clearly another one of these out-of-nowhere off-center British bubblegum pop types (e.g., Ellie Goulding, Florrie). Give her seven months, and she'll be climbing the BBC singles chart.
Diplo turns out a terrific dubstep-leaning remix here. (That's right—Diplo, as well as every other producer on the planet, is making at least some dubstep these days.)

The "Four Floors" single is slated to drop March 28.

Oddly enough, this is only my second Major Lazer post. Usually I hype any larger Mad Decent project into oblivion, but this one I've been taking it easy with because seemingly every other blog on the planet has been holding it down hard.
This Ms. Thing choon is probably my favorite off the album:
The Dance Area remix ain't bad either. You can pick it up on the iTunes release of the album.
Speaking of which, Guns Don't Kill People...Lazers Do is out today on Downtown. Buy it off Amazon ($9.49), iTunes ($9.99—with bonus tracks).
BONUS: "Hold the Line" [ft. Mr. Lexx & Santigold] [dir. by Ferry Gouw:
• Major Lazer [ft. Andy Milonakis] - "Zumbi"

This popped up on my radar a few days ago. I didn't even bother posting it initially because I assumed the PMA-minded blog universe would collectively and immediately overexpose it. Strangely, it hasn't yet landed on any of the "bigger" blogs I watch. That's somewhat perplexing. I wonder if there's some pact between the Mad Decent fam and the upper crust blogosphere that this particular track is off limits. If so, I didn't get the memo, so here you go.
For those of you not in the know, Major Lazer is the dancehall project of Switch and Diplo. They've been talking about the project for well over a year now, and we'll finally get to hear the full fruits of their labor on June 16, when their album will drop on Downtown Music.
On "Zumbi," the Shmilosmakis' hyper-faux ragga freestyle chant will keep your diaphragm active while Switch and Diplo's minimalist dancehall thud will make you want to get rill hostile up in the club:
In other Mad Decent news, cumbia/raverton king Toy Selectah released a free full length album of his remixes last night. If only I had this when I DJed for a very impatient salsa crowd a few weeks back. Click here to get the zip.

Just a quick heads up for those of you who haven't heard. Diplo has just announced a new joint venture between his label, Mad Decent, and Warner sublabel Downtown Music. Read more on Billboard.
This essentially means that Mad Decent, a label caught up in the bustle of not-quite-legit mixtapes, bootlegged re-edits and uncleared samples, will get some major label shine. This is quite a bold move on behalf of Warner, and it's certainly a testament to a changing-but-overwhelmed music industry that can't quite make up its mind on whether it would rather arrest these kinds of whippersnappers or work with them.
P.S. Did anyone catch the Rich Boy remix featuring 607 on the Mad Decent blog?

The above link is one of my favorite new things on this expansive mess we call the internet. It's a Tumblelog dedicated solely to pictures of Diplo giving the peace sign "as well as other less common gang signs." They even have a Twitter and a Cafe Press shop. Pretty ambitious operation here.
Not sure who's behind this. I promise it's not me.
