0174 Drake – Preach featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR @ 2:15

“Doing it right is a whole different story…”

Listen at :06, when they cut the filter, it had to be that number right.

Best part of the album in my mind, and you know why he had the drop the album so fast? K dot in his rear view.. K dot is next on TBPOS.

“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

best part of over my dead body

“over my dead body”

The first time I heard this it was on some terrible speakers, and I didn’t quite hear it right. My friend was also making fun of Drake’s sing songy rap style. But damn, hearing it on headphones, yes, this is why I have this blog. To post these special moments of musical bliss. Those lil drums in the background, the way she says ‘baby’, shit man.

Shout out to Drake for the Take Care billboard too, so slick.

LCD Soundsystem Interview in Toronto – This is Happening

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

“We’re gonna do the record in Spanish, and do the Panda market as well…”

I’ve posted this on Lowsound, but I want to share it here too. Last year I got to interview James and Nancy from LCD Soundsystem thanks to Ira at ExploreMusic. It was a blast, they’re both cool as hell. I think this may be their last ever interview :).. so enjoy!

“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.
