Jib Kidder - Windowdipper

I love shows like American Idol and So You Think You Dance because they constantly are turning me on to new music, and new artists. Last night on the results show, one of the contestants at the bottom (Ade) had to "dance for his life" and he did this fabulous contemporary/hip-hop routine, choreographed to this WACKY-fun song by Jib Kidder.

Now, I've never heard of Jib Kidder before but WHOA "Windowdipper" drew me in FAST, given that Ade only had a couple of minutes to impress the judges. The intro uses all of these Microsoft Windows blips and blops. I watched the video today from work on my computer and kept thinking how my computer was about to die. So trippy! The song can be found on iTunes.

Jib Kidder - All On Yall
Apparently Travis Wall, runner-up on Season Two of SYTYCD has choregraphed a routine to the same song. Pretty hot as well! I'm obsessed with this song now. OBSESSED. Jib Kidder reminds me a little bit of Girl Talk in the way that he infuses so many elements from different songs, but the guy is totally unique. It's a new kind of MASH-UP and I love, love, love it!

Calvin Harris Album Artwork Revealed

Calvin Harris
Album Artwork Via Coverlandia

Love, Love, Love Calvin Harris. Ready For The Weekend, the new album from the Scottish DJ, is due out in August. Debut single "I'm Not Alone" hit # 1 on the UK Singles Charts and stayed there for 2 consecutive weeks. Nice! The follow up single, "Ready For The Weekend" features vocals by UK singer Mary Pearce and is released in the UK on August 10th, with remixes announced by Dave Spoon, High Contrast and Fake Blood. The video premiered online in June. I love this song! It's got a fantastic old-school vibe too it and Mary Pearce's vocals sound fantastic. I'd love to see a Calvin Harris set should he come do a club tour in the U.S.

New Blake Lewis Album Drops in October

I adore Blake Lewis. Lewis was the beat-boxing cutie-pie who was runner-up to Season Six winner Jordin Sparks. While his debut album with Arista Records, Audio Daydream peaked at # 10 on the Billboard Charts, his singles failed to make much of an impact on the charts. "How Many Words" hit #8 on the Billboard Dance Charts with Remixes by DJ Dan and Dave Audé. His new album, Heartbreak On Vinyl is out on October 6th via Tommy Boy Entertainment. The first single will be "Sad Song" and you can have the chorus sent to your phone as a ringtone now.

Blake Lewis
I can't wait for new Blake Lewis. The guy is super talented and definitely brings something unique to the Idol alum crew. I also happen to love the new "electro-dance" sound that he's bringing to his next album. According to USA Today, Lewis is working with songwriters, producers and collaborators including S*A*M & Sluggo (Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco), Dave Audé (Pussycat Dolls, Paradiso Girls, Girlicious), Rodney Jerkins (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears), and Jean Baptiste (Will.I.Am, Black Eyed Peas) which all sounds mighty promising.

According to Blake in his e-newsletter: "The new album is coming together nicely, I just finished the photo shoot with the greatly talented Myriam Santos (google her!). We had a blast and I got to shoot in my hometown SEATTLE! I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to be working with a group of people that believe in me and support my crazy ideas!!"

Go Blake! Can't wait to hear what's next from you.
