LEIF will be celebrating his 18th berfday this Friday, and you know what that means. Right. He will be 18.
Leif has been in the IT'S THE MONEY SHOT!! clubhouse since before it existed. Nearly a year ago, his remix of M.I.A.'s "URAQT" provided an exciting conclusion to the first post on this piece of interweb. The mix was included in his remix compilation Arular Gone Glam, which has been on heavy pod rotation along with his Spank Rock remix project Spank Rock Rejawned. He completed two remixes for the Mirror Boiyz of "Don't Get It Twisted" and "IRL", a remix of another ITMS favorite Bedtime for Toys, a collaboration with the wonderful Onili, and the list doesn't end there. His work was recently seen on scattermish, callmeMickey, and chazology. Long story short...he's not even legal yet and his musical resume could probably shit on your actual resume. Or at least mine.
Though Leif seems to be retiring from the mash-up scene, he recently dropped a song entitled "LoveBroke". I was sold from the start on this one, as Fergie's "Glamorous", Trina's "No Panties", and Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" rendezvoused in a moment of musical bliss. Needless to say, this piece of musical genius quickly creeped its way into my Top 25 Most Played.
A while ago, Leif dropped the NEON DANCES EP, a full collection of mash-ups and mixes. Along with "LoveBroke", check out two jams from that project. Note the inclusion of Khia in "Do The Sexy Work II". Just sayin'.

BLOGWATCH: Brugo posted Lily Allen covering Blondie at SXSW, which I'm notifying you of even if I kind of hate Lily Allen. My Old Kentucky Blog has a huge collection of covers of The Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" with everything from Guns N Roses to Alicia Keys. Pop Tarts Suck Toasted recommends the new Timbaland album, which I don't recommend at all (no offense, PTST). Speaking of new releases, Lessons from Things posts a new one by Ms. Hilary Duff. The Smudge of Ashen Fluff brings us Bloc Party performing live on Letterman. Last but not least, Shameless Complacency has an mp3 of that Alanis Morissette "My Humps" cover that literally ten people sent me.
