I’ve been making things,
Out of dead cows,
But more on that later.
During my absence I took some time to taste what was out there in the real music world.
Alternative still sucks,
Modern Hip-Hop/RnB/Black People music (no racist) for the most part sucks except for R. Kelly (crazy motherfucker) and Gucci (still doing his thing from jail wordup),
Country was saved by Carrie Underwood (luv u babes),
Pop music will always be amazing [sup @taylorswift13 (love u lanky ass bitch) @selenagomez (+ her whole baby-disney crew omgzz luv u) @katyperry (xoxo) @ladygaga (love u crazy ass bitch/bro).]
Now back in unicorn fairy blog music land, here’s something from blog-decades ago. Pilooski does his thing on Jarvis Cocker’s “Discosong”. In this case, Pilooski’s ‘thing’ means making something sound better no matter how good it already is.
That said, it’s truly a joy going through my inbox and listening to all the rough poorly composed shit people send me because you know what? Whether it be a single lick, a nice sample, killer drums –there’s at least ONE genuinely good thing in all of them.
(that one good thing might also be the silence at the end of the track)

My backlog of ‘to shlog’ is getting longer and longer. Bad for me, good for you. Really a lot of good shit coming around these days and I don’t anticipate it slowing down anytime soon. Some of my favorites are locked down in the studio getting their chops ready to record new albums, so be ready!
Up next in the list is from Yuksek. The EP “Extraball” recently dropped, I think. It is a massive EP and features Amanda Blank’s vocals with remixes by ….drumroll….omfg….Burns, Pilooski, Breakbot, and a cover by The Shoes??? WHAT.THE.FUCK.!!! MADNESSSSSS. Get this. ASAP.
Anyway, here’s Breakbot’s remix which is undeniably ‘Breakbot’. Funk funk funk funkkkkkk. the synths and vocals. perfect for days. make you do the funky bot.
(ps: Breakbot also just signed with Ed Banger, finally. can’t wait to hear what comes of this very holy matrimony)
Alright and since anything Pilooski just kills me, here it is.
Seriously. Pilooski edits are the standard for edits. Anyone listen to the Franki Valli ‘Beggin’ Compilation? Pilooski MURDERS THE SHIT SOLID. check it out asap.
Q: How do you make a classic, classic-er?
oh, hold up, did you say you wanted more Breakbot? thought so. just look in the history my friends.
This one’s remixed by Fuzzz Whitaker, and I don’t know shit about him, other than this track is chill2themax. end of story. (HOLLER AT ME FUZZZ)
Next is a remix of an utter classic. (haaaaz udder). Listen. This is Findlay Brown (tite), and he’s been given a tiny edit by Pilooski (MAD FUEGO K-POP). It’s just the right thing to ease into right after a classy dinner party when people have a baby buzz on red wine and you’re getting ready to pour the scotch.
Sit down, close your eyes, slouch down on the couch… you can take your pants off if you want to.
