      Watching David Pattillo (who goes by the moniker “Strange Majik”) perform makes you want to fist bump to the tune of rebellion and replace your bedroom door with beaded curtains. Exuding bona fide rock n’roll from his music to his attitude to his shoes, my good friend continues to add to his arsenal of skills by releasing a record called Lights On featuring a coterie of talented singers and rappers that begun to fester after a walk home from his Nolita studio. Ever since I met him at a Rolling Stones tribute show in Bowery a few years ago, I’ve been captivated by his energy and crippled by jealousy of his long, luscious locks. WHAT IS YOUR SECRET, DAVID? What otherworldly oil do you use to make your hair shine like a brand new solar panel?! But I digress! In addition to fronting rock n’roll group The Dead Exs, the Emmy-nominated producer and musician has teamed up with a slew of fresh New York City talent to produce a 10-track record that transcends genre from an array of decades. I sat down to have a conversation with my buddy and it went a little something like this:

        “For me vinyl has always brought controversy, rebellion, love, hope, philosophy, sex, truth, irony, and mind expansion. From making up dances to Beatles tunes on my sister’s close n’ play as a toddler, to dropping my new 180g Lights On white vinyl on my vintage Dual turntable, it never ceases to amaze. My dream as a young musician would not be realized till I saw the needle meet the spinning platter and play my song… and now that day is here… a long time coming.” Continues here

Strange Majik was performing his solo blues with Velvetiina Taylor groovin her gogo moves and look who showed up….it even broke the Strange Majik personal Facebook forcing him to become a business page.

              As promised the new Strange Majik “Lights On” LP is here. In lovely audiophile quality 180g white vinyl this is how this record was meant to be heard. We just got this pic from our label in the UK and wanted to share our excitement!!

              Important information for buyers from the USA. As long as you’re happy with a slight delay for shipping, you can now use the “UK” shipping option for your orders, and I will arrange for the albums to be shipped to you from within the US. Order more than one album from America and there will also be a refund. HUGE SAVINGS!

              Here is the purchase link

                So we are huge fans of the h1tchr album credits app on the Spotify desktop client as well as apps from KCRW, MusiXmatch, Pitchfork, Bluenote and many others. This week Spotify forced a new update which removes the App Finder and all third party apps from the client. Its an unfortunate reality and we were really bummed when our apps were suddenly gone.

                Thankfully we did a little digging and we found cool kid Javier Santos post a super nice fix. He’s even going to tell you how to rollback the Spotify version with the App Finder and disable the automatic updates! Sweeeet. We recommend you google search for latest installer that includes app finder: Spotify 0.9.15.27. Install that first then use his instructions to disable auto updates. Working here!

                Here’s a more complete walkthrough with links to the DLs from WIRED UK

                    Thanks to the amazing contributors of h1tchr (pronounced hitcher) there is now a website where you can find and contribute to user generated h1tchmaps of songs that sound similar or share certain commonalities like melody, beat or lyrics. You can also connect cover songs, and songs that contain samples. While other sites like soundsjustlike will compare two songs, h1tchr lets you make entire maps of music. Check it out here. h1tchr was created by David Pattillo founder of Bang Bang Boogaloo.
