So I’m back in action but I don’t know what to post about (as usual!) however, I have a lot of cool finds to share with you all. Shout out to the fact that I have over 260 views with no promotion! By the way, only two people I know have contributed to those views and they definitely only visited the site twice so don’t even say “oh well you’re just telling the people you know to read your blog and hit it up a lot!” because that is extremely untrue.
Anyways, back to the post. My beloved Mad Decent website has a new place to get mixtapes!!! Click here to check it out!
Take one look at that wicked cover art and tell me you are not interested in who this chick is! I was reading a blog from MTV Iggy about Das Racist’s party for the release of their mixtape Sit Down, Man. Don’t worry, I’m going to post the review soon. As for this post. This post right here, it’s very informative. Every time I find a new artist that is worth listening to I nearly go KooKoo for Cocoa Puffs, Planet of The Apes, B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Gwen Stefani. Why? You ask. Well look up at the title of this blog. What does it say? It says “Know The Unknwn” in other words I am saying, “Get Smart. This Music Right Here. I Mean This Music Right Here, Is Legit! Like Too Legit To Quite. MC Hammer.” Okay, back to the post. I was reading a blog about Das Racist’s album party at the Santos Party House in NY and I noticed that this woman named Tecla was listed as one of the many performers of that night.
So, being the person I am, I Googled her. Notice how I said “Googled” not “searched on the internet.” That’s called a Proprietary Eponym. Get Smart Y’all. Geez I keep getting sidetracked. Sooooooo basically I am trying to say this chick Tecla is sick. She’s beyond sick. She’s ill. Lil Wayne. OMG I keep saying off topic things.
Tecla is like a mix of pop, euro, electro, I don’t even know how to explain-ness. I am diggin her style. I think she’s worth dropping a couple bucks on Amazon to purchase her CD. Take a look at her Bandcamp page and listen to her music. http://tecla.bandcamp.com/
BTW: Mezcla means mix F.Y.I. Get it, “Tecla is in my new mezcla.” She’s in my mix because she fits in so well with all the other artist I love. She’s definitely going on the Unknwn Artists page!!
If you don’t know who Maluca is then slap yourself one time. The word maluca means crazy woman in Portuguese and I’m sure she knew that when giving herself that title.
Maluca is a super fly Dominicana from New York with a ghetto tech style (Google it). Her music is like DJ Playero (once again, Google it!) meets Vogue. China Food, her mixtape, is on fire! Check out one of my favorite tracks. The video is too legit! >>
China Food gets an absolute 5 stars!
