Hi, I'm Andriana, but my friends call me Dre. Just a fan, with an ear for what's good. Coming up in tha game just in time to get old and die.
Sometimes I write for other sites. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any music posted here is for sampling purposes only. If you dig it, buy the album and spread the love. If you would like me to take down anything you see here....please Exit Through The Giftshop cuz that shit ain't gonna happen.
I’ve been super busy lately, so haven’t had time to write about all of the music I’ve been digging. If that makes you sad, you can always read my good stuff over at Shuffler.fm’s blog, Yours Truly, or Subrewind's site.
So I will leave you with some great new jams and probably the most poingant words to ever be spoken courtesy of comedian Louis C.K.

Killer jam. I want to write more about this…one day.

ABADABAD California Birds (Slow Magic Remix)
In honor of my last week in NYC and the show tonight at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn with Abadabad and Slow Magic, I have a special treat for y’all. Slow Magic gave Boston’s ABADABAD a sparkling, echoey twist on their track “California Birds,” just for the occasion. This one’s a lot of fun, just like the show will be tonight. Be sure to check out the other ABADABAD remixes by Yalls, :papercutz and Keep Shelly in Athens. Oh and if you’re in New York, come to Cameo Gallery tonight!
#2 How To Dress WellWaking Up To Life Sometimes Seems Worse (R. Kelly cover)
I lost my best friend and i sang this song for him. this was a really beautiful and sad experience for me — the video is the only take of the song, the first time i’ve ever played it, culling the lyrics from memory and singing from my soul with and for my boy.
i hope if you’ve lost someone you love you know that this shit is from the bottom of the heart.
I’ve actually been really curious about this dude’s live set. CLICK HERE to watch a live recording of Stay+ performing Dandelion in Manchester last December. It’s kind of a shitty vid, but you get the point.
I wanted to leave you with this last video of one of Ireland’s brightest stars, Toby Kaar, live at The Hard Working Class Heroes 2011 Launch. Guy is sick. I have met so many amazing, musically inclined (and obsessed) Irish folks in recent months, and just this week heard true brilliance from the new anonymous project known as Faws, that I wanted highlight a region that is experiencing their Golden Age of indie electronic. 2012 is Ireland’s for the taking. Nuthin’ but love.
I realized I missed a couple supa dupa stars on my Friday 11/11/11 mixtape, so decided to act like an adult with self respect and dignity and post a complete and updated version.This one is fancy and has artwork. And by artwork I mean a picture from the internet that I put text on top of.
Wrap up your week with some tunes to send you into the clouds. Just in time for 11/11/11, when the stars and moon align to form the face of one of musics’ greats. Luckily, this year the smiling face of Elton John appeared, a sign the world is not going to end anytime soon. If Mick Jagger had appeared instead, well, we would all be fucked. So get into the holiday spirit and celebrate the world not ending with this mix.

Possibly a glimpse into the master of mysterious, Slow Magic’s world. Or maybe not, maybe it’s all found images. Regardless living in a neon world can’t be that bad. GREAT track too. This jam is definitely the funkiest, of the spaced out variety Slow Magic has dropped thus far. Make that magic real slow bb.
Get Slow Magic’s “Feel Flows” from his Bandcamp. He also has an upcoming tour with Selebrities, so stay tuned.
I’ma go ahead and call this remix the deep fried Twinkie of my eye. The combo probably isn’t something you would think of on your own, but once you try it, all you can say is, “Daaaaaaaaaaannnnngggg. This is delicious.”
My two favorite electro-pop artists Luxemborg’s Sun Glitters and Denver, CO’s Slow Magic come together for a marriage of signature styles playing off one of Sun Glitter’s very first singles. Seriously amazing. Now all you need is a download…
