I don’t know if it’s the horns or the subtle tambourine (likely those plus solid kicks and the digital X-R-2 refrain anong other elements), but the Tigerstyle (get your BBC game up!) remix of MIA’s XR2 got my headphones working overtime lately.

Not exactly a step in the commercial radio direction -this one is for the clubs fly nightspots with exotic setlists and to pump out the JBL’s.

On a somewhat related note Viacom announced that they are slicing off 6% of their workforce and dumping the infant MTV’s Chi, Desi and K. MTV World GM and Senior VP Nusrat Durrani will be exiting his post.

According to MTV’s prepared statement:

“Unfortunately, the premium distribution model for MTV World proved more challenging than we anticipated in this competitive environment. As a result, MTV has decided to shut down its linear MTV World operation. However, we remain steadfast in superserving multicultural youth, and we are continuing to investigate ways to integrate the MTV Desi, Chi and K brands online and on our other screens.”

I guess we won’t be seeing The Real World: Chennai or The Himalayas any time soon.
