0162 John Wizards – Muizenberg (The 2 Bears Remix) @ 3:15

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

This is a highlight of late 2013; the original of which is from a fantastic album which has flown way under the radar considering how good it is. Check the categories it falls into.

A great way to start 2014, turn it up!

0159 Drake – Too Much @ 0:47

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

“most people in my position get complacent, want to come places with star girls”

There are some great moments on the Drake album, the sample on the Jay Z track, the intro to Connect, the chorus on Furthest Thing, and then the way the drums drop here on Too Much. It feels like they’re late. Love the flow too, and hearing Sampha takes me back to that great SBTRKT album. The Jimmy Fallon performance is worth a look too, great stuff from our hometown representative.

Too Much 2:45 – 5:45

From Nothing Was the Same, released through Cash Money Records, 2013

0142 The XX – Sunset @ 3:04

Monday, October 8th, 2012

There were lots of choices on this standout track from the new XX album. I had 2 parts chosen as the best part, when I realized it’s this part at the end that has it. It’s the post club, post dubstep, underwater atmospherics that take this part to the next level. It’s Jamie XX’s shout out to London, to Burial, and to his contemporaries in the happening UK bass scene. It’s a headphone listen, and oh man I’m hoping for a remix to hear this part get extended.  Best Part on the clip below at 0:33.

Sunset 2:30 – 3:15

From Coexist, released through Young Turks Records, 2012

0106 Deadmau5 – Raise your Weapon @ 5:03

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

“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.
