This morning I woke up to hear of the passing of Martin Streek. He had been a DJ for the local Toronto radio station (102.1 the edge) until he was let go in may of this year. Martin had been with the edge for almost 20 years and was the last of “the spirit of radio” crew (as far as i am aware?). He was probably most well known for his live-to-air broadcasts from different clubs and bars across the GTA and also for the Thursday 30 and new rock ground breakers.
On Thursday July 9th after a two year wait Toronto was graced once again with the bombastic sounds of Beirut. The openers for the night were the psych-rock duo The Dodos who played about a 45min set showcasing some of their more well known tunes including this one here.
As the venue started to fill and the tension start to rise the main act finally hit the stage and bombarded the crowd with all of their favorite tracks. This was the first time that Zach Condon had been back to Toronto since October 2007 and after the scare last year (Zach took a break and canceled all tours for almost a year) it almost seemed like they would never come back again. If you do not know much about this group then read on :P
- thanks wiki
I noticed the last time that I saw them was that they encourage the fans to bring cameras and recording equipment to the shows. Very cool idea! If only I had remembered this time haha. Anyways, for the record Beirut puts on one of the best live shows that I have seen. You wont ever understand unless you go to see them for yourself.

Just found this track the other day and really liked the video and of course the Radiohead sampling.
NOTE: keep your eyes open at the end for a tribute to radiohead :p
This fascinating, brilliant 20-minute video narrates the history of the “Amen Break,” a six-second drum sample from the b-side of a chart-topping single from 1969. This sample was used extensively in early hiphop and sample-based music, and became the basis for drum-and-bass and jungle music — a six-second clip that spawned several entire subcultures.
Just got sent this track and thought i should pass it on. It reminds me of an old knight rider re-mix from back in the day but my memory escapes me on who it was.
