Next Big Thing Alert: Santogold

Okay, so she may already be The Big Thing, but we here at middleCoast just can't get enough of the Santogold. Along with her compatriot, MIA, this Brooklynite makes pop music as it should be made in our post-contemporary society. The future is now, and Santogold is already there.

Santogold (née: Santi White) - not to be confused with Santo Gold, the wrestler/actor/singer/infomercial-mastermind - dropped her eponymous debut earlier this week on Downtown Records. Having worked with artists and producers such as Mark Ronson (you may remember "Pretty Green" from Version), Spank Rock, and Diplo, along with Miss MIA herself, Santogold's sound is an amalgamation of Hip-Hop, world jams, and girly pop.

We posted the video for "L.E.S. Artistes" last week, but here's a sampling of a few more:

"You'll Find a Way"

"The Creator"

"Shove It" (featuring Spank Rock)

Seriously, go get it.
