We Are S.M.E

[LISTEN] The Strokes – Angles (Full Album Stream) by wearesme

Ladies and Gentlemen, the wait is over; The Strokes are back and here we have their latest record in all it’s glory.

Angles is the New York bands first album for almost 5 years; an incredible wait for a group with so many plaudits and a massive following.

They kicked off all the hype with the release of Under Cover Of Darkness as a free download via their website and this was followed by leaks of Machu Pichu and You’re So Right and a performance on SNL.

Listen to the album in full below and let us know if it was worth the wait!

Another day and another big mix from the man of the moment; Jamie xx. Everything this guy touches turns to gold. He even manages to sample the Countdown theme tune in a grime mix without looking like a complete twat! How is this possible, you ask? Some say he is half mortal, half badman.

Listen to his grimey mix from Mistajams Radio 1Xtra show on Tuesday night, with the Countdown theme in all it’s glory, below.


[FRESH VIDEO] Jamie xx & Gill Scott-Heron – I’ll Take Care Of You by wearesme

Premiered by Dazed & Confused, here is the brilliant new video for an equally brilliant song from Jamie xx and Gil Scott-Heron; I’ll Take Care Of You.

The beautifully shot film profiles a single mother who is torn between caring for her child and pursuing a career as a boxer. She trains hard in the gym and returns to her council flat to play with her young child.

“Who want’s to fight all of the time unless there’s something wrong with you”. A moving insight, set to the soundtrack of a moving song.

As SME mentioned earlier, Jamie xx dropped into Radio 6 Music on Sunday evening and took over the 6 Mix.

Unsurprisingly, he delivered a gem of a mix which features everything from his collaboration tracks with Gil Scott-Heron, 70’s Soul Tracks, UK Garage beats and Grime from the likes of Roll Deep.

You can listen to his crazy cool set below, courtesy of the wonderful iPlayer.

[VIDEO] Ghetts – Who’s On The Panel by wearesme

Following MTV’s announcement of the ‘Best Of The Best Top 10 UK MC’s 2010’ list, SME immediately expressed our annoyance at the outcome and it looks like we weren’t the only ones who weren’t impressed…

Ghetts is one of the MC’s who controversially didn’t make the cut and it’s safe to say he wasn’t best pleased. So, he took it upon himself to make a quick new track on which he could air his dirty laundry. He even got a video shot; this guy means business!

Check out what Ghetts had to say on the matter below.

Premiered during the NBA All Star Weekend in Los Angeles, The Black Mamba stars Kobe Bryant, Kanye West, Danny Trejo, Bruce Willis and is directed by Robert Rodriguez.

The short film sees Kobe playing the role of his alter-ego The Black Mamba while Willis and Trejo play the sidekicks of ‘The Boss’ Kanye West, who is after one thing and one thing only; Kobe’s shoes. Check out the cheeky flick below.
