YE-LID News: All We Care About Is Sex And Violence

It's the middle of finals season right now. I'm in the library, and am supposed to be reading about media institutions or some shit. However, I've discovered that Dizzee Rascal has started playing this new track at his shows called "Bonkers". It's produced by Armand Van Helden (yes, that Armand Van Helden), and while it's obvious that the song is a response to no one in North America giving a flying fuck about his music, there's something really addictive about it.
Going from grime to straight up dance music reeks of desperation, but if his new album is filled with tracks this fun, I'll let him sellout. There's a video of him doing it live below; you can almost feel the crowd letting out a loud, "WTF?" when the song starts before no longer caring that this sounds nothing like Dizzee Rascal and just losing their shit when the beat really kicks in. You also may or may not be able to find the mp3 if you google search it (but you didn't hear it from us). We'll post it when it's not wildly illegal to do so.
