Santogold and M.I.A. - BFF

I think I am not only in saying that when I heard first heard Santogold mid-to-late 2007, I thought that she may have just been biting our dear M.I.A.'s style - cute, alt, likes neon, loves Brooklyn, working with Diplo and other famous M.I.A. producers, etc.
I had come to find out that she has been writing and making music for some tome now with many MANY other acts, but I still couldn't shake that feeling of "hmmm, I think I have seen this before." All those fears and such laid to rest when pictures of the Santo and M.I.A. began to emerge and I realized that they realized that we are all in this together... Sweet ain't it.

Now Santogold's Self-Titled album (or as I like to call it "I should have ate the third helping of Arts and Crafts") wasn't my favorite and some parts just fall short for me. But I have been loving recent remixes and new offerings I have seen sprouting up along these internets. So today I bring you some tracks I have been rocking, two Santogold/Diplo endeavors (one with Amanda Blank, who I am in love with) and a KILLER M.I.A. mix.

Santogold - I'm A Lady (Diplo Mix ft. Amanda Blank).mp3 (320 kbps)

Santogold and Diplo - Guns of Brooklyn (Dob and Jon Hill Dub).mp3 (192 kbps)

M.I.A. - Boyz (Hot Pink DeLorean rmx).mp3 (320 kbps)

OH and before i go, everyone go over to THE LEMUR BLOG and wish our good friend a Happy Birthday! There is a killer collection of tracks he has collected from various blogs sending birthday wishes in the form of awesome musics. They are stellar. We unfortunately missed our chance to participate in this happening but we await the next opportunity. Anyhoo, HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEMUR!
