Some fire for your weekend shenanigans. First up an epic 8 minute track from Dimitri from Paris. We don’t post a lot of house on this blog but this track gets me. Killer vocals on both backup and lead.
I’m kind of ashamed to like this next track just because it makes me feel old. Louis La Roche is no stranger to our blog and he nails that classic disco sound in his new track. And when I say classic, I’m picturing 80 year olds in a conga line reliving their glory days. It takes a special kind of producer to make you feel so much happiness and shame at the same time. Louis La Roche – Gimme Gimme
Next track is a fast and furious jazzy monster, definitely a big room affair. Curiously did not come attached with an artist. My apologies. After Party (Original Mix)
Haven’t heard of Griz before but if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a sucker for classic samples. Hip-hop memories over some fatass bass. GRIZ – iLL Type Moves
For those of you who have not noticed the subtle shift in weather (i.e. our friends in California), Fall is all but upon us. When you live in an area that routinely gets hammered by snow and wind, then you truly appreciate anything you can do to make yourself feel warmer whilst strolling down the sidewalk. I assume that this Autumn, like every other, is ramping up to turn frigid with a swiftness, and as such I will be dedicating each of my posts to songs that will help thaw you from the inside out…
I will begin with my two favorite songs off of the Marble Players newest EP ‘Marble Summer’. Obviously this post is slightly behind schedule but I figured what could warm you up more than music designed for the summer? For those of you who have not yet heard of Marble Players, it is a three-man group consisting of Surkin, Para One, and Bobmo who formed their own label together after their previous label was disbanded.
This first track is very laid back track that doesn’t have a ton of variation, but it’s perfect for the kind of thought-stimulation I look for in music trying to distract me from my current situation.
The second track is a little more what you’d expect out of these three. Still very chill, but definitely a lot more going on as far as song structure and instrumentation (plus there is a nice bass accent which is always appreciated here in funkytown).
And now something that should make you feel all warm inside before you even hear the song. ’96 Bulls re-edit of Wolfgang. It’s like Jordan pulling up from the top of the key: you know it’s gunna be good.
