It’s sad that the majority of my posts refer to the fact that that I don’t update as frequently as I should. This is one more of those.
Either way, I still listen to a shitload of music, and I still don’t give a fuck about hype.
♥ u all.
Anyway, here’s one from Whitest Boy Alive’s new venture. I’ve mentioned them in the past via a great Fred Falke remake, but this is an original of theirs. Believe me, WBA’s originals don’t need edits, Falke’s just being generous here.
This track is from their upcoming “Rules” album, (which is stellar –out in March 09). Immediately starting the song you’ll notice those soft wurlitzer-esque keyboard riffs and an extremely crisp rhythm section –something I appreciate these guys for.
But as soon as the bridge rolls through… GAME OVER watch out for the staccato synnnttthhhssss!
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about all the club banger freaks –most importantly Wolfgang Gartner didn’t forget. He’s been one of my favorite producers lately and his original shit has been nonstop stellar.
I picked out some pretty obvious samples in “Hookshot”, anyone else?
