I’m going to post my favorite Deodato track (S.O.S. – Fire In The Sky) later, but in the meantime have this:
I couldn’t come up with one particular track by Snow Tha Product I liked more than others, so I made a playlist. She’s one of the best rappers I’ve heard in a long time. Her topics are not super original (although her bisexual Mexican-American perspective is), but her skills are amazing and before you know it she will say some phrase like “the type that makes local strippers to do too much for crumpled ones” and you have to go back to figure out how she possibly made that fit the rhythm perfectly. And she raps in Spanish, too.
I used to play this in the office a lot. It’s nice music to work by, and juuust safe for work enough you can play it on a second monitor without getting HR complaints. But only just.
This great synth-pop track was not what I was expecting from Steven Wilson. I need to check out more of his music.
I’m a huge fan of Mahavishnu Orchestra and John McLaughlin. I never listened to Jeff Beck. And then I came across this. I think it’s… better than the original?
This is a great cover of one of my favorite The Cure songs by pagan doom rockers Alunah.
I’m a huge fan of Feist’s first two albums and then somehow stopped listening to anything she did after that. Ironic since I now live in Canada and she gives concerts here.
This is a kick ass remix of one of the tracks off her second album.
Lovely guitar solo.
To be honest, I don’t watch this for the music. I watch it to see two nice young men being mercilessly crushed in a break dance battle. The contrast between the first dancer and Bad Queen’s synchronized entrance makes me laugh every time, and then Ibuki finishes by doing some things that look impossible or are just exquisitely timed to the music. Despite the crushing it looks like everyone is having a good time.
If you’re into this kind of thing, I definitely recommend looking for more Ibuki videos.
This DJ set by Sama’ made me fall in love with techno music again. Amazing tracks, amazing song progression. Play it loud and/or through headphones.
If you want listen to it without ads, but also without the lovely crowd, here it is on SoundCloud.
I got this track 15 years ago from Erik, as an untitled MP3. It took me a very long time to find out it is by the French band Artsonic. Absolutely kick-ass cover.
