M.I.A. – Pull Up The People (Speed Painting By Salena)

Randomly ran into this during a YouTube binge and what a pleasant surprise it was. I’m not very familiar with speed painting but this undeniably cool. It’s from an upcoming artist called Salena, out of Berlin, Germany. She’s done a few of them which are featured on her Myspace. The featured track is one of my all time favorites M.I.A. songs called Pull Up The People, from her freshman effort Arular. Nothing like some invigorating Diplo production, London Sri Lanken street slang and cool art to get Friday started. Enjoy.

Here’s a bonus track from the Piracy Funds Terrorism mixtape released back 2004.

M.I.A. – Arular

With the success of “Kala,” many of us may have forgotten or possibly not even know of M.I.A.’s first album, “Arular.” While not as adventurous as her sophomore effort, Arular still packs the same social consciousness, catchy cadences and hard hitting rhythms that make Maya irresistible to begin with. A true underground classic. Here’s “Hombre” & “Pull Up The People.”
