OK, so I know Chris from GvB just posted these tracks (here), but I didn’t want anyone who isn’t familiar with GvB to miss these. Mix-master and mashup-man (alliteration!) Dert has created an album by mixing together tracks from swedish-mexican heartthrob Jose Gonzalez’ debut, Veneer, with songs from numerous alt-hip-hop stars, including Common and Talib Kweli. The mashup album, Sometimes I Rhyme Slow, will be available for purchase on March 7th, but Dert has released two downloadable songs from the album on his myspace page. The mashup of Gonzalez’ Heartbeats with The Light (by Erika Badu & Common) is my personal favorite, and looks to be the best track on the album. I have posted the two songs for download below, but you can also just download them from Dert’s myspace. In addition to that, I have posted the tracklisting for SIRS, just to get you all tittilated and whatnot. Check it out.
Tracklisting for Sometimes I Rhyme Slow:
1) Go + All You Deliver – Common

PS: I designed a little mini-banner, as you can see below (and also at the bottom of the page). This allows you guys to get an idea of what we look like. Just as a note, Adrian has long hair now and Austin is aware that his hat looks ridiculous. That is all.
