UrbanMan vs City with your host Carl Meadow
So holy shit this looks awesome. Is Mortal Kombat coming back again? Well possibly. When I first saw this trailer I immediately thought because of the quality and caliber of actors that this MF was a done deal and was in production, but not so much. Aparently this was a proof of concept done by Kevin Tancharoen to sell the suits at Warner Brothers the new darker concpt for the rebirth of Mortal Combat. Apparently Warner Brothers was ready to move forward with production when Threshold Entertainment (Hollywood Intellectual Property Management and Production Company who owns the rights to mortal kombat) filed new breach of contract lawsuit and stopped the thing dead (lawsuit fatality!). Buuuuut this trailer has been getting such a huge buzz online that I think someone is going to pick it up and pay off Threshold because when there’s that much money to be made in hollywood someone will find a way. For now check out this bad as look at the possible new Mortal Kombat movie.
Got some fre$h tunes here for you people. First up is this KiD Cudi jam that he colabed with MGMT and Ratatat for. You might know of KiD from the poker face sampled song Make Her Say he did with Kanye (kanyes verse is the nasty btw) or the Day N Night jaunt he did, either way this track is rad. Person L is the singer from The Starting Line’s new band… well I guess not new because this is their second album but believe you me this album is a solid mother fucker. It has an old school rolling stonesish feel too it mixed with bad ass, gasoline, and a cigar. This track will give u a good feel of what it’s about. After that we go on to Sleigh Bells which is a noise pop duo based out of Brooklyn, NY. Real interesting stuff, nothing really like it out there now. Geographer has a pretty unique style too, not nearly has hard has Sleigh Bells but still has a little of that electronic feel mixed with some old world cello action. Lastly I threw in some old school swing jazz from france from my man Django Reinhardt. His guitar style is so rad and a feel musicians can learn a lot from how he does his string slides and verbratto. It would be a great style to try to work into more modern music but is still dope in the orginal context. Oh yea and he only had 2 good fingers on his fretting hand… total bad ass. Enjoy!
