oh em gee

I didn't even realize Grizzly Bear was playing with Radiohead!

Awesome show coming soon!


The mystery is kind of solved. For the most part, anyhow.

Keedz ≠ Justice

Here is the full story taken from

"Keedz are Universal France new Justice.

Yep, give it a year and they are trying to sell out your style of sound. Justice gained a huge ball of popularity during 2007, esp. with their super banger track DANCE.

"Stand On The Word” was first ever recorded live in the First Baptist Church in Crown Heights, NYC, in 1982. Soon after the church pressed up a couple of hundred copies for the congregation, a couple of blocks away from Walter Gibbons’ Jus Born recording studios. Walter Gibbons had already turned new born Christian since a few years, avid Gospel records collector with that; and played the original recording often behind the counter at the 7th av. Rock and Soul shop were he worked. Walter Gibbons must be credited to have revealed this Phyllis McKoy Joubert song to New York most discerning DJs and soulful dance music aficionados, as it quickly became a Garage, Loft and Zanzibar club classic and ended up remixed by Tony Humphries for this wider release.

But then DJ Larry Levin re-edited it and made it an instant disco favorite. This is when Justice used his re-edit to create their song, DANCE."

Here is a link to one of the original remixes, not the original track though.

In case anyone was interested. I was.

I am an atheist and all, but I find this song, both the Keedz version and Larry Levan Mix, very rousing. I really enjoy it.

Oh and the Keedz version if you'd like to hear both:
