Black Dominoes remix of Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa, and a Vampire Weekend prize pack

One listen to this catchy-as-all-get-out song is usually all it takes to have me whistling it for a large part of the day. I'm getting really good at it; someone should make the Heather Browne Whistle Remix.

Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa (Black Dominoes remix)- Vampire Weekend

The guy who remixed this writes: "Black Dominoes is my new nome de remix and I gig out in the Southeast as Kellen John Kid Danger. I've shared bills with people like the Black Kids, DJ Klever, the Selmanaires, Flosstradamus, Treasure Fingers, Deerhunter, HR and Dr. Know from Bad Brains, the Black Lips, Snowden etc. I'm based in Atlanta but I actually just did a great gig this weekend at the 40 Watt Club in Athens.

I thickened up the original Vampire Weekend track with some Chico Sonido percussion and some beats jacked with the help of Blaqstarr and Diplo. The female MC is Rye Rye from Baltimore--I think her 'response' to the original Vampire Weekend verses add another dimension to the track

I love it.

In related news, Beggars Group/XL Recordings is giving away a prize package for this buzz album of 2008 that includes some cool Vampire Weekend schwag -- a copy of the Mansard Roof 7" single, an autographed poster, a scarf or hat, and best of all a pair of tickets to a local show. Most folks I know who have caught these guys live are instant converts.

Hardly true. Live show's a snooze.

On an unrelated note I think your facebook account may have been "hacked" because I just received an email from the facebook:

"Best ringer site ever, they hooked me up with t0nes for a year.


On a related note, this is my favorite music blog.

thanks Rob, and my apologies.

maybe I am actually really excited about those free ringtones.

Well I suppose anyone could get excited about free ringtones however being so excited that you would post a message like that is probably rare.

They definitely won me over when I saw them live last month, and this one is my favourite track.

I came across this remix because Colin Murray played it on his Radio 1 show this week, in case you didn't know.
