Holy Fuck... this is awesome... Klaxons hip-hop Dalliance!


Well we heard that Klaxons wanted to work with Dr Dre. And some people thought that would be awesome (including myself) but the likelihood of that happening is probably rather slim... (their closest hip-hop collabo so far was the one I blogged about back during Pitchfork Festival with Cadence Weapon *pictured above... I searched forever for a picture of them together and then found it on their Flickr lol*)...

BUT NOW THIS DREAM HAS BEEN PARTIALLY REALIZED! A BBC Covers album is coming out with loads of covers including Klaxons cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity" (which was, of course, produced by Dr Dre). It is quite simply the fucking most awesome idea that has come to fruition in quite sometime. They are heading into second album territory and we need things like this to whet out palate until we get to hear that...

So I now present to you, my friends, in all of it's radio ripped 128kbps sounding glory, the cover...

Klaxons- "No Diggity (Blackstreet Cover/Radio Rip)"

Klaxons- "No Diggity (Blackstreet Cover/Radio Rip)" YSI

Now you say to yourself, "Why is this asshole giving us a radio rip and not the song in it's full glory?"... first off, I don't have it... second off, if I did I wouldn't post it... I really really like the Klaxons and want them to make money! My blog is not about depriving people of income it's about promoting bands I like (so BBC when you come here to kick my ass lay off please)... when the covers album comes out make sure you pick it up! There are TONS of other artists like Hard-Fi, Maximo Park, The Fratellis, etc that you (the discerning 'Arcadia' reader) will probably love if not at least be entertained by!

This was a surprise post I didn't even intend on making but once I found this I KNEW you guys would want to hear it! Check back soon for more interviews and more awesome tracks.. until next time!

Correct me if I'm wrong but are you the guy who invented Tipex?
Sorry....... Correct me if I'm wrong but the Klaxons will not make a penny from No Diggerty if they release it. Won't it all go to Black Street? Unless the laws have changed no-one makes money off cover versions, but then again I maybe wrong.
Love the blog by-the-way.

They get performance royalties if they play it live... other than that it's all for the lyricist/composer/owner/publisher/probably record company/BBC..
