I don’t know whowherewhyhowwhat I found these Montreal (or Toronto?) maestros of deescoey hause musique, but the Cloud took me there and damn it’s bon bon. The original is noice, but a tad too poppy for me. Lend your ears to the Arturo Re-vision (that vVv) after the original, and then onto the Dreamtrak Diamond Dub which is grooowing on me). And before you lie down and dream of Kate Upton, put on the Stay Ali “chill” remix. Check out their cloud and follow them, buy the EP when released.

An unexpected bonus that I stumbled upon today:
Shocked to just discover that Axe has been around since Unilever launched it in 1983. Gota be a cash cow as their target in America is pre-pube-scent boys and high school boys that play the skin flute. The “Axe Effect” has certainly never worked for me. But I don’t look like Nick Lachey or Ben Affleck (they’ve endorsed it), so go figure.
You’re telling me that if I spray myself with this “Kilo” next to me (true story) Kate Upton isn’t going to want to give me a blumpkin? Damn. BTW, Frenchies all wear Axe, it is HUGE there. Every day I’d board the bus in Aix-en-Provence to class and these French kids with tight jeans and gelled hair would hop on the bus and I would get smacked in the face with “Mirage,” “Recovery”, or “Dark Temptation.”
Whoever has Axe’s advertising account are either geniuses or retards and I can’t decide which. I mean the product is pretty trash. Most of the sprays are way too strong and smell like a skunked on sex panther or something. The body wash is the whack kind that has like those discolored hard dots that feel weird. But the ads kill it. Throw some hot chicks in bikinis, get Bartleby (Affleck’s IMDB is unreal) the evil angel and that dude who looks like Ronnie from the Jersey Shore to endorse it and boom, shazam, moolah.
Take a look at this ad for “Lynx” and guess what demographic they’re targeting. The subliminal message is blinding. It’s just so awesome:
"Yo mons if Isa spray myself with some of da Lynx, bitches bein wild ‘n’ out and doin donuts and shit in some hawt wheels mons. Bombaclat! Ima spray myself widda Lynx and be waxin on n off all da n night. Free BMDOUBLEYAS MONS. BOMBACLAT!"
Yeah I don’t think a Jamaican dude with an 10 inch anaconda needs any help getting laid and Axe isn’t going to help him win the lottery. Might mask that raunchy B.O. for like 30 minutes but in 108 degree heat you need some prescription shit. I like it nonetheless. Throw in a couple huge plants of herb sprouting to the sky jack in the beanstalk style and now you’ve got yourself an ad.
Note: I fucking love Jamaica, all it represents, and my best friend is black. As is my president.
