Fireplays from Jon Thomas on Vimeo.
The video above is from artist Jon Thomas. Entitled Fireplays, the video was made using a bevy of fireworks and a Nikon D300. It's like those Sprint commercials from 2007 except cooler and more dangerous.
The song below was made by Mr. Vega and features the vocal stylings of Jamie Righetti from the band Firekrotch. It's like a Rihanna song from 2008, except cooler and more dangerous.

So that's what happened! I was wondering why Num Num has just been lying in the same spot for three weeks.
Canadian producers AutoErotique, or as I call them "the artists formerly known as VND/LSM", apparently released their dance floor banger, Gladiator, onto the internet nearly three months ago. If you missed it then, please download it now. Some of you might remember their name being attached to one of the best Little Bit remixes around. If not, you have some catching up the do sirs and ma'ams. Start your learning process off by listening to Gladiator at least three times then give their Little Bit remix a couple of plays and you'll see why they are one of the mostly hotly anticipated acts coming out of Canada for 2009.
