you must be living under a rock if you don’t know what a vuvuzela is. a week into the world cup, they’ve generated more discussion than the football itself. even non-football fans are ranting about them, calling for them to be banned or joining hilarious facebook groups somehow vuvu-related. there’s been a lot of talk hovering across the internet suggesting that the vuvu drone should be sampled, and this is the first one i’ve come across.
it was put together by ghostdad, of the fully fitted fam, and it’s suitably frenetic and exciting. there’s even a crying baby in there, no doubt aggravated by the incessant sound of the horn. for what it’s worth, i think they add some colour to the games, though i just can’t be certain if i can hear them deep in my mind late at night as i lie awake in fear…..
in other news, check out this new track da bee by polish upstar deCtar. it’s described by its creator as “Annoying piece of shit”, but i think its use of that whining bee sound is interesting, inventive and lots of fun. check it out.
