It's "New Music Tuesday" (one of the last times I can say that, as new releases shift to Fridays beginning July 10), and today there's something new for the whole family. Two of my kindie friends - TWINKLE TIME and MISTA COOKIE JAR - have teamed up for a new single and video called "Kidz Rock." Both artists produce bilingual jams for the kids and family market, and this one - released to coincide with Dia Del Niño (April 30) is a fresh mix of EDM, hip hop and pop. Check it out below, and if you dig it, buy the track direct from Twinkle via Bandcamp.

A half hour and twenty videos later, I was well-versed enough in Harlem Shakeness to share it with my wife. If you're not familiar, Google is your friend (it's being called "the death of Gangam Style")... but here's what is quite possibly the first version done by a Children's performer, L.A.-based TWINKLE TIME. Check it out below...
