It’s nowhere near November but I’m thankful for so many things. Internet, cell phone with internet, web browser to access internet, macintosh to enrich internet experience. etc.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, on to the part where I post really good music. (this is long…) (that’s what she said)

Miami Horror seems to be a permanent fixture on this website and it is no coincidence. It’s all so good! Whether it’s an original production or a commissioned remix, the curatorship is always top notch.

First up is a remix for Miami Horror’s single release of “Sometimes”. My boy Yama of GLOVES fame gives this a heavy coat of vintage summer pearl and finishes it off with a butter-smooth 2000 grit wetsand of some of the best ‘big-lady’ vocals + 90’s big room piano stabs I’ve ever heard in my LIFE. TRUTH. (apologies for the car-nerdism -ed.) …but damn, not to be overlooked is THAT INTRO which complements the conclusion so well.

Miami HorrorSometimes (G.L.O.V.E.S. Remix)

In no way, shape, or form of bringing you down from your high of that last track comes a Miami Horror remix of The Presets “Talk Like That”. This one’s from the blog-vintage rosetta stone. Had to hop in my blog-delorean to dig this one up, but it proves one thing: If it’s good, it’s good forever. None of this fast-fashion bullshit. fuck your fleeting taste in music. I played this out recently and fear not, it still makes the kids get crunk @ 2:58. soooo much vibe!! If you need a musical analysis of this track, no. just no.

Now that we’ve gotten sweaty let’s hop a bridge to the disco side of things to get a steady pace going. Human Life. I posted a video (so good) of this single on the TUMBLMANIA not too long ago, but if you don’t follow it’s quite easy to miss such a thing. A lovely bassline and earnest vocals bring this together. The chorus verse first dropping @1:01 has some of the best vocal / instrumental interaction I’ve heard in a while!

Lastly, but surely not least, the man, the freshest in Brooklyn, ALAN WILKIS. He remixed RJD2’s “The Shining Path” which features vocals lent by the only Phonte Coleman (part of Foreign Exchange, phontigallo etc). Alan Wilkis’ style complements this style of vocal PERFECTLY. When I first heard this track I thought it was an original AW track –that’s how natural it feels. Take this cool-down lap and have a listen.

I hope you enjoyed today’s journey as much as I did. As usual, check the tags if you want to hear more from the posted artists. Chances are, I’ve blogged about it before.



UFFIE COME ON WHAT HAPPENED

Dear Uffie,

Your awkward white-girl rap was charming. When paired with solid Feadz/Oizo/Ed Banger beats, it was outright vibe-worthy.

Key example: Oizo’s track, “Steroids” features your lovely vocals and it’s a perfect marriage of awkward and technoise. (is that coined for mr. oizo yet?)

Things went downhill from there my dear…

Your latest single [ADD Suv] featuring Pharrell (Prod. by Mirwais) is listenable –for 15 seconds. No disrespect Mirwais, but C’MON SON. Yes, there are brief glints of beauty, but in a whole sea of ugly.

Hell it could have been good even if P produced it himself.

Here’s to hoping your upcoming full-length has things that sound better than this.

Love,

Chris_n

In other news, this is what “ADD Suv” could have been:
Armand Van Helden in for the save. I can hear the heavy influence of Duck Sauce shining through on this one. By somewhat balancing Pharrell and Uffie’s lines, he capitalizes on Uffie’s (really good) harmonic vocals that are noticeably overshadowed [by the off-kilter-Mirwais-borderline-hip-hop-beat] and turns it into a chopped up sparkling-disco fiesta. FEEL ME??

For you to note: for some reason you readers like emailing me comments instead of just posting comments to the post directly. This poses 2 problems:

1. it’s a 1 on 1 interaction and that’s not what the internet is about. I’m all about an orgy of discussion. Besides, I’d much rather everyone be able to see my amazingly snide/smart-ass/bitch-ass replies –I’m not beyond making individual posts about email messages, as you know. but it’s gotta be REALLY good.

2. it makes me look horribly un-popular on the internet. not that i care or anything. seriously. i don’t care. forget it. fine. just keep emailing me your comments. i see u lurkers. lurkin’ ‘n shit.

twitter.
tumblr.
facebook.

BONUS:
just listen to this again. seriously. do it.

Matt Van Schie(Be My) Lady (Hemingway’s Beach Bossa Mix)



i like to relax and listen to yacht funk

This is about Matt Van Schie. Yes, the one from Van She.

He’s been doing his solo thing for a while now with the not-too-long-ago debut solo release of the fun “Balmy Nights EP” –while his bandmate, Michael Di Francesco is doing remix wizardry under the name Arithmatix!. (need more van she tech circa 06-07 in my life)

There has been a stream of remixes to supplement this EP release and a chilled out remix of Matt Van Schie by none other than Hemingway is nothing to scoff at. In fact it’s bloody amazing. Anyway, it is known fact that Hemingway makes magic yacht funk.

From bassline to keyboarding, everything is dialed for maximum funk. This vibe is a complete departure from the original track and it’s pretty refreshing (suffice to say, I enjoy the original material as well).

Get this and
GET BOSSA ON THE BEACH

BONUS:
Who likes “How to Make it in America“? At first I only watched it to see the intro with pictures Bronques took of the people I know in real life. But then I heard a fat man say ”fuck selvage, that’s hand-dyed indigo from a left handed weave.”

It made me sad and confused. and I’m glad they failed at making jawnz. but i still watch it. ’cause i dunno.

treasure fingers bootlegs

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?

This is a Treasure Fingers edit/bootleg of Jocelyn Brown’s “Someone Else’s Guy”, totally unofficial, but totally awesome.

Where did Treasure Fingers learn the funk? This is perhaps a mystery nobody is yet ready to answer.

Anyway, check this bootleg, spread it around, play it out. The intro starts out relatively innocuous, but just as the vocal drops at 1:31 it gets soooo groooove! Start to get summer hype for the 2 upcoming releases!

BONUS!
since I’m still on a Juggernauts high, check this remix of Stardust Five from WAYYYY back. You can hear the BEST sound EVER right when it drops at the 2:30 mark. holy shit. There should be a vintage Juggernauts remix throwback at least bi-weekly.

midnight juggernauts: showing vital signs

You remember I posted this.

Then I tweeted this.

Now it’s your turn to get a taste. I just got the OK to post a single from the Vital Signs EP along with another little surprise set for release on their upcoming Crystal Axis full length. (Out May 28!!!!!!!!!!FFFFUUUUUUCCCKKKKKK)

It builds and builds and builds and builds. There’s so much atmosphere in Vital Signs that once the verse begins, you don’t even realize it. The chorus explodes into your CNS without warning and it feels so right.

Midnight Juggernauts – Vital Signs (videoooooo) (sosick)

This next one is a b-side on the Crystal Axis album, and what’s up with that? Like, if this is a ‘b-side’ the a-side must be fucking ridiculously amazing because what I’m hearing right now is quite fucking ridiculously amazing.

Speaking of b-sides, what is a b-side anymore? are there digital b-sides? like, what dictates the ’side’ of a digital file? I can’t ‘flip’ my mp3 over and play the other side –so why call it a b-side? Why not call it, “Stuff that didn’t make it onto our actual album, but we want to include anyway.”

Anyway, just wait until 2:46.5 when this track slices you in half with the organ stabs good enough to be pulled straight from a doors album.
