Dizzee Dancing Gang, M.I.A.
A few days ago I bought "God's Money" by Gang Gang Dance and "Sketchi" by Cex. Then, a few days later, I bought Dizzee Rascal's new album, "Maths + English," and M.I.A.'s new "Kala." And all of those albums are awesome examples of the turn electronic music is taking in this new century: these albums, all electronic in different ways, are all awesome in similar ways. Sick beats, high in danceability factor (Cex is low on this, but high in great-to-listen-to-while-stoned factor), meaningful messages, it's all so great. Just had to let you know.
