0059 LCD Soundsystem – Daft Punk is Playing at My House (Soulwax Remix) @ :35

“All the furniture… is in the garage”

It’s new to me; the remix is dead cool. Heard this on The Gilles Peterson show last month.

Soulwax really turned up the heat for their remix, it’s a lot harder than the original. The best part is when they edit in the Daft Punk snippets. That’s all. Happy Holidays!

0058 Curtis Mayfield – To Be Invisible @ 3:47

“so I’ll be invisible..”

When I first started buying old records, Curtis M was one who I would always look out for. All of these albums from the early 70’s (Sweet Exorcist, Supafly, Curtis, Back to the World) you can play the whole way through. This jam is kind of a slow one, but it stands out for me because of the ending. Remember that part in the Unkle video for Rabbit in your Headlights where the guy finds his strength and the car demolishes itself on HIM..I think this part of the song is like that. There’s like a little delay after “..upset”, and Curtis is reborn, choice made.  Invisible. It  sounds futuristic, and perfectly out of place.

Also, Cassius sampled it.

From the heyday of hip hop, one of DJ Premier’s hottest beats. Classic! Lots of good parts but I’m going with the instrumental at the end.

“whatever puts me all the way up”

A quickie on a beautiful Sunday.  Always liked this one from local boy Matt Good. The best part is right at the end.

0055 The Beach Boys – God Only Knows @ 2:00

Definitely my favourite Beach Boys song of all time, and the only one on my Itunes. This part at the end is magical, and I’d go so far to say we’re in Mozart and Beethoven territory here. Your first cue is the drums, and then the bass, and then you’re off twirling around in a circle staring up at the  sky adding in our own “..withooouutt you’s.” Try it!

God Only Knows 2:00 – 2:37
