Just Sit Up On My Satellite

North Star

Well funny thing happened today… One of those primitive primates that we blasted into the peripheral outer atmosphere and infinite beyond actually sent back a signal to the Tin Man’s antenna.  Apparently it was a long forgotten radio broadcast transmitted into the cosmos to see if anyone’s actually out there… complete with all the funky spaced out vibes you would expect from monkey’s making music with martians.  So go forth and touch a monolith.  Get lifted to a higher state, because after all, “they lied when the said there was no air in space.”

After further decoding of the transmission, here’s what we were able to come up with:

Richard Strauss – Also Sprach Zarathustra (Thus Spake Zarathustra) / Sound of Genesis – Journey To The Moon / Dam Funk – Let’s Take Off / James Pants – Cosmic Rapp / Baron Zen – Space BASS / Beastie Boys – Intergalactic (Colleone / Webb Remix) / Cut Chemist – What’s The Altitude (feat. Hymnal) / The Heliocentrics – Joyride / Sonic Sum – Rocket / Cannibal Ox – Cosmos (feat. Rob Swift) / Flying Lotus & Declaime – Whole Wide World (feat. Pattie Blingh) / Ras_G & The Afrikan Space Program – Spacewayz ! / Quasimoto – Astro Travellin / Dr. Octagon – Earth People (Earth Planet Mix) / DJ Shadow – Changeling / Philip Glass – Lady Day

One of the featured artists on this week’s broadcast, Dam-Funk, continues to keep the space funk alive with his new FREE! EP, InnaFocusedDaze.  Be sure to check it out at Stones Throw’s site, and if you haven’t heard his epic 5xLP sincerely funked opus, Toeachizown, do yourself a favor.  Keeping with the space vibe, here’s a nice video of what good times can be had on the moon if we just got our space program back…
