0080 LCD Soundsystem – Dance yourself Clean @ 3:00

Monday, June 14th, 2010

“Don’t you want me to wake up….”

Big Synth drop right here. I was lucky enough to interview James Murphy (the main guy from LCD) a couple weeks back for ExploreMusic and I asked him about this part of the song. He said he’s a big gear guy, and that he sidechained about 6 synths to get this the way he wanted it. I remember watching a video of Kanye talking to Timbaland about whether the kick drum on Stronger had enough oomph…there are parts of songs that a producer knows have to hit hard, and I think some producers spend days if not weeks tweaking the compressors, filters and effects settings once they’ve already got the notes played.

You’ll be thankful when you hear this, I am. Check it out.

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!
