2014 Mad Decent Block Party

The 2014 Mad Decent Block Parties are underway, having just hit NYC on Saturday (8/9) in Coney Island's MCU Park. The lineup included label boss Diplo plus rapper Vic Mensa who was fresh off a Lollapalooza performance where he covered The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" which he did again at the block party on Saturday. As always, the party -- which also included Dillon Francis, Diplo, Flosstradamus and a bunch of others -- was a wild time with nonstop dancing all day.

Vic Mensa at Lollapalooza last weekend (more by James Richards IV)
Vic Mensa

Chicago rapper/Chance the Rapper associate Vic Mensa has been on the rise this year, doing pretty cool things like playing "Clint Eastwood" with Damon Albarn, touring with Disclosure, and then making a song that sounds influenced by touring with Disclosure. He now just released a song with another hot electronic producer Kaytranada (who will release an EP on XL and tour later this year). It's called "Wimme Nah" (as in, now that he's getting hyped, all these people are with him now), and you can stream it below.

Video has also surfaced of Vic taking on The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" at his Lollapalooza set this past weekend, and you can watch that below too.

Vic was in NYC last night (8/7) playing the FADER / Goose Island show at Rough Trade. (Anyone catch that?) His tour continues tonight (8/8) in Philly, playing the first of four Mad Decent Block Parties that he was recently added to (in place of his pal Chance the Rapper who dropped off). Vic's also on the one happening in Coney Island's MCU Park this Saturday (8/9) with Big Gigantic, Dillon Francis, Diplo, Dougie F & DJ Fire, DJ Snake, Flosstradamus, Grandtheft, Walshy Fire and Young Kyle 187.

All of Vic's dates are listed, with the new song stream and video, below...

Bonde Do Role

Back in June, we mentioned that the Mad Decent Block Parties were returning this summer and then earlier this month, they revealed a list of artists, but didn't say who was playing each city. Now venues have been revealed for all five parties and the lineups for NYC Philly, and Toronto have been announced as well.

The parties are free and all ages but RSVP is required. All announced lineups are listed below.

Speaking of Lunice, his collaborative project with Hudson Mohawke, TNGHT (pronounced "tonight") released their self titled debut EP this week (7/24) via Warp/Lucky Me. If you've yet to hear it, you can stream the entire thing below.

As for Bonde Do Role, the block party will be their first NYC show quite a while. You may remember that their original singer, Marina Ribatski left the band in 2007 and was replaced by two other singers, Ana Bernardino and Laura Taylor, who joined the band by winning an audition done with MTV Brasil. Ana has since left the band too and they are now a 3-piece fronted only by Laura Taylor. The new incarnation of the band put out their first album in five years, Tropical/Bacanal, last month via Mad Decent. The album was co-produced by Diplo and Filip Nikolic of Poolside (who have two NYC shows this week). The album features guest appearances from Caetano Veloso, Das Racist, Cecile, Rizzle Kicks, and The Death Set (who also has a NYC show coming up). The video for album track "Kilo" and a stream of another track, "Bang," which features Kool AD of Das Racist, are below.
