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!
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!

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.

“David Pattillo, AKA DP, AKA Strange Majik is a man that lives for music. He is a true student of the art ingesting anything that has to do with music and incorporating it into his work. From performing, to producing, to writing whatever he puts his hands on usually turns out pretty damn good and that includes his latest project, Strange Majik’s Lights On. Throughout his musical travels he came upon a relatively obscure musical collective in NY called the Lesson. Strange Majik began a collaboration with the collective leading to some of the best music to filter out of Pattillo’s brain.” Read more….
