Girl Talk’s new Album, get it here (sorta)

This past Monday, Novermber 15th, everyone's favorite non-DJ, Girl Talk, released his 5th album entitled "All Day". You can download it for free. I have been listening to it and its everything you would expect from Girl Talk these days, and its great! Mashups/remixes times 10. One of the best parts of listing to this is that he does many of these mixes live. Some are pre-mixed (obviously), but for the most part, its live. Click through for the download link, more album art, and the track listings.

The Rent Is Too Damn High, Jimmy McMillan meets Jimmy McMillan (Update)

This Halloween was a bit nuts, as it is almost every year. But this one was special. I dressed up as Jimmy McMillan from "The Rent Is Too Damn High" party. He is running for Governor of NY this electron, November 2nd 2010. I got the pleasure of meeting him in front of my house and he is an interesting character. Check out the video below. Click through for more videos of the real Jimmy McMillan:

Update: Election results are in and Jimmy McMillan got 2615 votes for Governor. Thats 6th place, out of 8 people running. Not too shabby for "The Rent Is Too Damn High" party. That was actually on the ballot too, lol.

DJ LIGONE from France is the new 2010 World DMC Champion (update, VIDEO + more pics)

The DMC this year is now over. It was in London for the last two days and the action was intense. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the DMC, it is a world-wide championship that crowns the best DJs/Turntablists in the world. The winners wins major gear, sponsorships, and get to tour around the world. Past notable winners are DJ Qbert, Mix Master Mike, DJ A Trac, DJ Craze, and most recently in 2009, DJ Shiftee. The US has brought home 12 wold championships, but in the last five years its gone back and forth between the US, Germany (once), and France. This year France took the title back. Click through for all the winners, pic and more. Update, there are now many videos and pictures to check out.

Rock the Bells – Show wrap-up (tons of Videos and Pics)

This past Saturday, as you already know from the post before, the 7th annual "Rock The Bells" concert happened. First things first, it was off the hook! The artists were called to do, from cover to cover, one of their classic albums. No one completelly stuck to the format, and some threw it out the window, but overall it was a very special event. These artists never really do their album hits on stage, just the most popular songs. It was quite a treat and all the hip-hop stars were there (either making a cameo on stage or just watching). NYCelectro.com had VIP passes, so click through for more pics, videos, and complete coverage of the event.

DJ Shiftee for America’s Best DJ 2010 (with videos)

DJ Shiftee, if you don't know about him, then you should. He is the 2007 DMC Battle for World Supremecy champion (2 minute head to head routines, posted below), and the 2009 World DJ Champion (6 minute battle routines, also posted below). He has the gold turntables, and hes got mad skill. This year, he is up for America's best DJ, and I think he has go the skills to earn that title. His 2010 campaign video (parts 1 and 2), party routine, and other videos are all after the jump:
