0125 James Blake – Deeds @ 1:20

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Hey, welcome back. Here’s one that’s nice for Fall. I thought this was going to be released on his upcoming EP Enough Thunder, but it’s not showing up on the advance tracklist. Found it on the BBC special that just aired, which has all sorts of gems in there. This one is stand out.

He plays Toronto on Sept. 30th, might want to check it out!

Deeds 1:20 – 1:50 (approx)

0111 Jamie XX/ Gil Scott Heron – I’ll take care of you @ 0:44

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

As previously tweeted, this guitar right here is amazing, and because it fits in with our instrument series, it’s #111 on the blog.

Enjoy! I’m going to check out the rest of the album. Jamie XX is a bit of pimp right now in the UK.

Buy the song and listen through to 3:23 for bonus points.

I’ll take care of you 0:44 – 1:15

“burn, burn, burn…”

I wonder what the UK boys think of this one, it’s kinda hidden at the 4:45 mark but still.

That extra little step in front of the drop makes it unique. Heavy drums and a soulful vocal, nice combo Mr. D.

You know it’s 2010 when a pop song drops like this. Wobble wobble.

0089 The Streets – Blinded by the Lights (Nero remix) @ 1:50

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

“…blinding my eyes”

The bass here could blind your ears on a proper sound system. No idea who Nero is, and the original of this track is already an amazing tune, but putting a blistering dubstep synth and drum pattern underneath it is pure genius. It’s a stomper, best part is the drop.

0076 Joy Orbison – The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow @ 2:54

This one is not obvious right away unless you know the track. Up until this point, we’re riding a synth wave that does not let up. Finally the drums do, which you can hear at the beginning of the clip, but the best part is when the drums come back in without the synth.

You can hear the synth start up a bit later on again, but around that early 3:00 mark, it’s a nice breath of fresh air to hear the track open up like that.

Geeky post I know :)  This artist is cool and I wanted to post him up here.

“Vancouver”

You’re going to hear this word a lot leading up to the Olympics, but not like it sounds here. Considering Martyn is from the Netherlands, I’d love to see the Dutch team roll into BC Place playing this song.
