I’m not sure how many of you know that Franki Chan is good ole boy from Indiana, but the man behind Iheartcomix hails from Bloomington. A couple of years ago, Iheartcomix and Franki were influential in the revitalization of dance music. Recently I haven’t noticed much from the label, but this quick 9 track mix is nice blend of some newer disco joints.
Somehow I missed this when it first dropped. Not sure how. Anyway, my favorite electro house miscreants have returned with their latest edition of the Datamix series. This shit just makes me salivate at the thought of their full length release coming soon!

The man behind iheartcomix Franki Chan dropped his newest mixtape the other day. Clearly a promo piece for his upcoming Australian tour, the mix features a nice selection of the hottest current jams. However, I have to admit that the first 2/3 of the mix bored me. It wasn’t until “King of Africa” dropped that I actually became interested in what Mr. Chan was playing. From there out, the mix lets loose with some serious basslines and a lil Dutch house….its everywhere … srsly! Hopefully we’ll see Franki in Indy sometime soon.

I usually don’t post about the same artists twice in a week, but Designer Drugs have had an exceptional week. First off, they have just released their second single “Riot”/”Drop Down” on iheartcomix. Secondly, Theo and Mike celebrated the anniversary of their first single “Zombies”. And finally, I somehow conned them into doing an interview for MHC. Hope you enjoy!
MHC: I open every interview with this question, so who can pull more pussy in a night: Michael or Theo?
Michael: Theo because since he has a pussy he can pull it whenever he wants.
Theo: Pull it, pet it, twist it, bite it, you name it.
Rest of the Interview below the cut.
Designer Drugs are back with their second original release on iheartcomix featuring Riot and Drop Down. Riot is already an anthem that most people are dying to get their hands on. Drop Down, however, has not gotten much exposure until now. As a means to hype the release, Franki Chan recently posted Drop Down as a free download on iheartcomix. Enjoy, and watch for a Designer Drugs interview in the near future.

There is nothing better than receiving unexpected new music from artists that you love. I just stumbled across this new gem on Twitter from Mike and Theo of Designer Drugs. As the fifth volume in their Datamix series, this edition follows suit with a series of banging electro joints. I wasn’t able to grab a full tracklist, but I would venture to say that it consists of a lot of originals and remixes from the DD duo.

Messinian sent me a link to a video of him peforming live that was posted on IHEARTCOMIX, but the coolest part about the post was the Toxic Avengers minimix that was posted at the bottom. The past week or two has been a great two weeks for electro mixtapes. Between this and the Designer Drugs mix, I am straight set on all of the electro that I might want to listen to.

Just wanted to say HUGE thanks to everyone that performed at and came out for the first “Money, Hoes, & Clothes presents” show @ Talbott Street. It was a great fucking night and a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday. Mike from Designer Drugs was drinkin’ his whiskey per usual and broke his glasses by running into me. Grey Granite and company put on a great show. His stage presence is definitely worth noting. TONS OF FUCKING ENERGY! The turnout was decent considering the snow. Below are links to pictures from the night and a bonus voice clip from Michael before Designer Drugs.

Went out drinking last night with the Stewbot, and he told me that he was cooking up a special mashup for his set on January 29th @ Money, Hoes, & Clothes presents Designer Drugs! I immediately asked if I could give download to all of the MHC readers, and Stew was down. The track is over all fun. I love it. Throw it on a decent and feel the bass. Prepare for that feeling on a much more massive scale in exactly a month from today!
UPDATE: This is just an early cut of the tune. Will post the finished version later.
UPDATE: Got the final version of the tune, and it now features Kanye’s verse from American Boys. Seriously, this shit is hot. I am leaving the original up as a bonus download, but you definitely need to cop the official mash-up.
