If you live in a big city (in Europe), you’ve probably had the opportunity to check one of these ‘Hyper Facades’ out. For the rest of us, there’s the YouTube version. The good stuff starts at about 30 seconds in:
Yes, it is just another big budget advertising gimmick, but at least it’s a visual treat. Not like a billboard that sits for weeks on end, looking shitty until some brave graffiti artists puts something worthwhile on it.

Introducing The Lost Files Vol I by the Fyre Dept (Adam Deitch & Eric Krasno) available for FREE on Royal Family Records.
The Fyre Dept, consisting of lifelong friends and musical cohorts Adam Deitch and Eric Krasno, have put together a collection of their hottest tracks that have been locked in the vaults of their Brooklyn studio for years. Deitch began the process of sampling countless musical heroes of his onto his Korg Triton keyboard about 10 years ago. After rearranging pieces of different records mixed with samples of his own drums and percussion, as well as adding basslines and efx, Kraz stepped in and added his masterful guitar playing, mixing and mastering skills, while coordinating and producing the guests that appear on this mixtape. This mixtape is edutainment, meaning that we encourage you to do research into the artists we sampled as well as the emcees and musicians that appear. This is also a homage to a style of Hip Hop music that we love. Enjoy the lost files.

This is a solo acoustic version of “Fanfare” performed on the HandPan (PANArt Hang). Never heard of it? Neither had we. Peep it:
I don’t recall ever hearing about the HandPan, but thanks to Dante Bucci, I’m now in the know. That thing seems like it’s gotta be fun to play on. Like a reverse steel drum that you play with your hands.
*By the way, I have no idea if “Fanfare” is a cover, and if so, who does the original. Just saw the vid and thought it was cool enough to share.
