Six Cups of Rebel

Hans-Peter Lindstrøm's ecstatic synth disco occupies a stylin' cyborg middle ground between Daft Punk and Air; he's remixed LCD Soundsystem and transformed Bethany Cosentino into a bedroom-mirror dance diva on a reworking of Best Coast’s "Boyfriend." The Norwegian DJ's third solo LP conjures the Eighties Midwestern art funk of Prince and Was (Not Was) in a miasmatic mix of club grooves. On "Magik" and "Quiet Place to Live," barely intelligible lyrics are like neon signage: more color than meaning, but seductive enough to lure you in and keep you there.

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
