NGUZUNGUZU WORKING ON M.I.A.'S NEW MIXTAPE [05 May 2010|05:54pm]

astralwish
I did an intvw with LA duo NGUZUNGUZU a few days back and they revealed that they are workin on maya's new mixtape! And workin on tracks with Rye Rye as well.





How have you guys been? All good, taking it all in! We are working on a bunch of new tracks and we’re getting ready to tour Europe and playing HARDfest out here in July. We’re also working on M.I.A.’s new mixtape for her upcoming album. The mixtape is due in June. We are really excited!

That’s definitely exciting! Is that why you were working with Rye Rye as well? Rye Rye is amazing to work with. We actually worked with her on another new track too, for a strange reason– the track is for the new A-team movie! We got contacted by NEET when we were in Monterrey Mexico DJing, to do a collaboration with Rye Rye the night we got back to LA. So we basically made the beat on the plane, and went straight to the studio at like midnight to meet Rye from there. We were supposed to remix the A-Team theme song, but we mostly sampled the drums and made a REALLY loud heavy club tune. Then Rye Rye wrote all the lyrics on the spot and killed it. The music really happened beautifully. Aside from that track, we’re doing some more work with her for the M.I.A. mixtape. Rye Rye taught us a lot about bustin’ some shit OUT! She handles her business, ain’t no fucking around.

So the mixtape is dropping in June. The full article is here.

BTW They also did a mixtape for our blog which is FIRE.

Keep an eye on them, they are gonna be big!

The release date is set. The buzz is growing. And now M.I.A. has chosen the lead single from her eagerly-awaited album.

The “Paper Planes” rapper, who recently returned to the U.S. after visa problems, has selected “XXXO” as the first single from her as-yet-untitled third album. The catchy electro-pop song will be available on iTunes May 11, Rap-Up.com has learned.

“I just feel like ‘XXXO’—it is what it is,” she told Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1. “It’s kinda [about] being disconnected in L.A. and not having cell phone service or just not being able to kinda leave there for 18 months.”

While she does not appear in her controversial video for “Born Free,” which has been banned from YouTube, she will soon go in front of the lens to shoot the visuals for “XXXO” with famed director Hype Williams.

M.I.A. had everyone looking up when a blimp flew overhead Jay-Z’s set at Coachella to announce her June 29th album release date.

I bet this is the track with the singing Verizon workers.

M.I.A. has made the unusual step of asking fans to name her forthcoming third album. On Monday, April 26, the 34-year-old singer-songwriter/rapper posted the following message on Twitter, "MIA TRACKLIST FOR LP COMING JUNE "YET UNTITLED" OPEN TO SUGGESTION AT @_M_I_A_ #miap4k," alongside a picture of the tracklisting.

The follow-up to 2007's 'Kala' is produced by dubstep whizzkid Rusko and already sounds like it will be as genre-busting and unconventional as her previous offerings -- the pair recorded the heartbeat of M.I.A.'s one-year-old son for one track.

Speaking to BBC 6Music backstage at the Coachella festival earlier this month, Rusko said. "It sounds like a rock band trying to play dubstep songs. The whole idea of the record was to freak people out. It's crazy. It's like mad distorted and hectic." He went on to say they considered calling the album 'Complications' on account of the convoluted recording process, before deciding to throw the title open to fans.

Meanwhile, M.I.A. has caused controversy with the video for new track 'Born Free', posted on her official website on April 25. Directed by controversial French film maker Romain Gavras -- who made the 2008 Justice tour documentary 'A Cross the Universe' -- the nine-minute-long film features images of law enforcement officers wearing American flags beating, arresting and brutally executing people with red hair, presumably a metaphor for oppressed minorities. It has been banned from Youtube, but is still available on Vimeo.

I personally think she should keep it self-titled since her first two albums were named after her parents.

Go here to listen to a short interview with M.I.A. where she says she is making a video for the song XXXO directed by Hype Williams (smh) It is at the 34 minute mark.

this just in! Spencer Pratt gives his unwanted $0.02 about Born Free!Collapse )

M.I.A video 'removed by YouTube'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

British rapper M.I.A's latest music video is being removed by YouTube, the video website says.

The 9 minute long clip for new track Born Free depicts a number of gun carrying 'soldiers' executing redheaded people in graphic detail.

Confirming the content is being removed in the UK and US, a spokesperson for YouTube said: "On YouTube the rules prohibit content like pornography or gratuitous violence.

"If the content breaks our terms then we remove it and if a user repeatedly breaks the rules we disable their account."

M.I.A's UK record label XL said they had no comment.

The video is directed by Romain Gavras who has previously worked on music videos for The Last Shadow Puppets and french dance duo Justice.

M.I.A enjoyed a worldwide hit with her track Paper Planes when it was re-released after featuring on the soundtrack of Slumdog Millionaire in 2008.

M.I.A on her new track Born Free
Speaking to Radio 1's Zane Lowe about new track Born Free (26 April) M.I.A, real name Mathangi 'Maya' Arulpragasam, said: "It was the first song recorded for the album.

"At the time, a lot of things were bottled up. It was a good start."

Released on 29 June, the rapper added that her as yet untitled third album was recorded in LA and was about being "disconnected" and "not being able to leave there for 18 months."

Meanwhile, the latest figures from ComScore say the number of videos viewed online in the UK has increased by 37% year on year in February, to 5.5bn.

YouTube is the most popular online video destination in the UK, with 99.6% of all videos viewed.
