Boys Noize – “Girl Crush” (Feat. Rico Nasty)
Are we about due for a blog-house revival? It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, would it? Alexander Ridha, the German DJ and producer who records as Boys Noize, came up in the that whole mid-'00s wave, and he's been working steadily ever since. He's also become a prolific collaborator — working with Frank Ocean on "DHL" and with Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign on "Midnight Hour." Today, Boys Noize has a new single out, a collaboration with the festival-wrecking rap energy-bomb Rico Nasty. The combination makes sense, Rico Nasty's single greatest collaborator is Kenny Beats, a veteran of the EDM universe, and Boys Noize records often have the kind of trashy energy that she can project. But "Girl Crush," the new Boys Noize/Rico collab, isn't really a Rico Nasty song. She doesn't rap in it. Instead, she purrs about a girl she likes over a pulsing electro beat. It's not doing a lot for me right now, but I could imagine it going off late at night in a room where everybody is on cocaine.

AP Explains: Why Syria's M5 is Assad's highway to victory
BEIRUT (AP) — It is arguably one of the most coveted prizes in Syria’s civil war, and after eight years of fighting, Syrian President Bashar Assad has got it back.The Damascus-Aleppo highway, or the M5, is known to Syrians simply as the “International Road.” Cutting through Syria's major cities, the motorway is key to who controls the country.Assad gradually lost control over the M5 from 2012, when various rebel groups fighting to topple him began seizing parts of the country.Protests against his family's rule had erupted the year before amid a wave of uprisings in the Arab world. This soon turned into a civil war, following a brutal government crackdown on dissent and the intervention of foreign powers in th

Universal Confirms That Nirvana, Beck, Soundgarden, Slayer, More Masters Were Damaged Or Destroyed In 2008 Fire
Last year, in a massive feature, the New York Times reported on a musical-history loss that had been kept largely secret. In 2008, a fire at the Universal Studios Florida lot raged through and devastated a warehouse where Universal Music Group had been keeping decades' worth of master recordings. Many thousands of those masters — irreplaceable high-quality original recordings of songs, both iconic and forgotten — were reportedly destroyed. Universal kept this quiet for more than a decade, never alerting the artists, who, at least in some cases, were the legal owners of those masters. And now Universal has been forced to admit to some of the damage done in that fire. According to Rolling Stone, Universal has filed documents admitting that master recordings from 19 artists were destroyed or damaged in the fire. This was part of the discovery process in a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of many of the musicians whose music was reportedly lost. The list includes some truly important

The Number Ones: Chic’s “Good Times”
In The Number Ones, I'm reviewing every single #1 single in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, starting with the chart's beginning, in 1958, and working my way up into the present. *** Chic – "Good Times" HIT #1: August 18, 1979 STAYED AT #1: 1 week "Here it is, y'all," Nile Rodgers told us. "The song that started hip-hop." This was in the summer of 2000, and Chic were playing a free show at Central Park SummerStage. Rodgers, never Chic's vocalist, still made for a great hypeman throughout the evening, throwing in asides about how everyone used to go off in the clubs to these songs. Halfway though "Good Times," Rodgers even underlined his point about the song, rapping a few bars of the Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight." Apparently, he now does this every time Chic perform "Good Times." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er9xGRolrT4 Rodgers was not, strictly speaking, correct. Hip-hop had been an underground phenomenon in the Bronx and elsewhere in New York for years before Chic

Coronavirus cases surge for 2nd day after China revises diagnosis criteria
China on Friday confirmed another 5,090 coronavirus infections, and 121 more deaths, bringing the death toll near 1,400, according to The Associated Press. The country has seen a surge in new cases for the last two days since health authorities in Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak, changed the way they identify infections, with most of the new cases based on a physician's diagnosis before lab results come back. The surge in confirmed cases has dampened hope that the spread of the flu-like virus was slowing, but health experts say the higher numbers are partly due to the new methodology. "I suspect but can't be certain that the underlying trend is still downwards," said Paul Hunter, a professor of health protection at the University of East Anglia in England. Harold Maass
