Boston goes M.I.A.

M.I.A. hops the C Line.

1. LISTEN: DJ C, "Boston" (mp3, via DJ C). Track listing.

Jake Trussell, a/k/a DJ C, has come through with the goods. The streets asked for it. (OK, maybe it was just a dude on Hollerboard, but still . . . sayin'.) This one's for the archives: the (almost) complete 38-minute history of Boston Bounce, including a sneak peak at all four songs on the upcoming Beat Research 12-inch and -- yes -- your first taste of DJ C's offishal remix of M.I.A.'s "URAQT." The original traxx were pretty good to begin with, but this mix KILLS. For backstory, read David Day's scoop, or follow along in OTD's archives. Also, go see DJ C every Monday night as part of the Beat Research crew at Enormous.

1.5 [update]. Can't keep up with Beat Research dudes. DJ C's partner Antony Flackett, a/k/a DJ Flack, has just posted another Boston Bounce-y track, this one of the mashed variety, pitting Kanye West's "Gold Digger" against Ghislain Poirier.

LISTEN: DJ Flack, GP Bounce (mp3, via Riddim Method blog)

2. From the mean streets of Somerville, Compound 440r is ramping up their game. They've got rough cuts for days, and polish is not in their game plan. These guys have been sending us like three mixes a day, so expect to hear more from them. Here's two of their best M.I.A. remixes.

LISTEN: M.I.A., "Pull Up the People (PTVN's Do Not Eat Mix)" (mp3)
LISTEN: M.I.A., "URAQT (No. 1's Big Digits Remix)" (mp3)

For more info on these dudes, see here.

3. As if you needed reminding: M.I.A. headlines the Paradise on September 23: now with SPANK ROCK of B-more club "Put That Pussy On Me" fame.
