Do the November blues got you down? Getting tired of cold weather, darkness before dinner time, and copious amount of snow? Enter Pharrell Williams and his new interactive music video: it’s catchy, full of infectious smiles and dancing, and is 24 hours long!

Ready for some F U N!? Funky, Unique, New

DJ Simple

The last few days I’ve been enjoying a party mix from DJ Simple (Buffalo, NY). There’s a few parts I especially like, including the juggling of the first song “I’m Ill” to shout Simple’s name and a Ludacris track smoothly mixed over a dubstep version of Ginuwine’s “My Pony” beat. Somehow it just works!

From the artist:

About the mix: Released in early 2011, DJ Simple aims to create a fun party atmosphere for everyone in attendance while remaining unique in his track selection and mixing style. This mix is guaranteed FUN! The only thing that would be better than playing this mix at your next party would be to have Simple himself rocking the crowd!
