february 15 2011 – can you wait?
i featured ghostdad’s acid yazz last week (which is still super awesome and features xxxchange tracks such as his remix of charlotte gainsbourg) and now i wanna draw your attention to a new project from xxxchange, ghostdad and devlin. they’ve done a new track under the name win win, which is a pretty appropriate moniker. the track is called releaserpm (no i’ve no idea either), and it features vocals from lizzi bougatsos, who if you don’t know is a member of gang gang dance. remember what i said? win win. the track is hosted on the fader, and got a mention on p4k, but it needs our attention because…..
never think that dudes, NEVER…
girl talk has a new album out! hurrah! uh, no, fuck that. i can’t even download the damn thing. if you want something to really mess with your head, check out acid yazz from ghostdad. it’s in a similar vein as xxxchange and devlin‘s voila (only the second-best mix ever) in that it’s in short, distinct yet vaguely related segments. each section is aptly named, and it’s got stuff you really should know (bowie, um, vampire weekend) and stuff you’ve probably never heard before (pretty much everything else). it’s an amazing listening experience, enjoyable not just because you’re waiting to hear what comes next. now trust me, i’m not solely celebrating this mix against a backdrop of girl talk hate though. this is awesome on its own two, but in today’s context it stands out even more. you can listen below, or pay with a tweet. do it – it’s worth it.
they call me pasey pase
don’t make me wait
i go from country to country
and state to state
well you’ve kept us waiting. pase rock’s latest has been a long time coming – nights, produced by xxxchange is a bizarre oddity. it’s a bit wobby, moving from the disco-funk styles he’s used in the past. he’s also eschewed the knowing, humourous style (getting head from punk rock chicks, give me bad brains) for an autotuned party-time vocal.
feel so lonely
i’m tired of being alone
an understandable sentiment, but not one you expected from this dude. that said, the production is ace and the remixes don’t disappoint. nadastrom’s is of the electro-banger variety, while dj spider’s has that hazey, smokey vibe you expect from the likes of the solid bump crew. pick up the single here.
still no internet at home – blogging at work. yeesh. last night at krash was a lot of fun, as usual. someone spotted that panda bear remix – what a dude. i was happy that a few people asked “what’s this track?!” while i was playing schizofonics. tellin’ ya, they’re headed for great things.
next on the list is transmission tomorrow night – it’ll be a special one, as quigo and i are going b2b for the last 45 minutes or so. we’re thinking lots of energy and lots of tunes that’ll put a smile on your face.
