Rihanna doesn’t have to do much to drop men down.  She can simply walk down a street, and watch them drop like flies at her feet.  However, she insisted on releasing this song and video describing in a faux-Jamaican slant how she shot a man down. The fast reggae beat gives her story more cred…

The Beastie Boys have done it once again and added another slice of visual genius to their videography.

This time, acclaimed director and old friend, Spike Jonze, created a video which is a glorious 007 pastiche, with an unforgettable zombies scene –  all done with small action figures and Barbie dolls.

The track is called “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” from the latest B-Boys album: Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2, which is available for downloading now on iMesh .


Crash test dummies

Africa Hitech are Steve Spacek & Mark Pritchard, two English musicians who relocated to Australia a few years ago (wow, that’s 3 continents in one sentence!). Their latest album, 93 Million Miles is one of the best bass heavy electronic albums of the year so far, and the lead single off it has just got a brand spanking new video. Malfunctioning robots, crashing cars and urban chaos are all magically co-existing in this great piece of audio visual goodness..

By the way, the main sample here is probably familiar to you from Damian Marley’s huge hit from a couple of years back, Welcome to Jamrock, but the original vocal cut (Out in the streets, they call it murder..) is from World-A-Music by Ini Kamoze, which was released back in 1984.
