Underworld+Paul White+Hud Mo+Calvin H.
Underworld’s Jumbo will always go down as one of those songs that no music snob should feel right making fun of because its just an overall beautiful classic song with one of the best samples in the intro with the old guys talking about vests OR they’re just kidding themselves and their bitter and on one of these levels:
A. They listened to Underworld Beaucoup Fish way longer than all of us and now hate it because they showed up late to the other music genre parties.
B. They had a great experience at Love Parade hearing it as a raver but some sweaty muscle dude walked by and just smeared body sweat across their face and every time they hear “Nice lil vest, light!” they can still smell that sweat on their face.
C. they have a bad collection of music with not much depth and are very critical and own a lot of R.E.M. CD’s that their hiding for no reason and are too embarrassed to even share high school photos of themselves on facebook.
I remember someone was so kind enough to turn me onto Paul White on the blog and I just tried to search the comments but no luck to give them any credit. Paul White is pretty similar to Bullion(by the way, Bullion and Pilooski killed it last night, super nice guy, had dinner with him and told him about the blog and he dropped this amazing track that Busta Rhymes sampled to make Dangerous that blew my mind) but with a more silly side to him, really love the tracks and just soo much fun to listen to but a little short but hey it makes me press rewind.
Been waiting for a new Hudson Mohawke song forever, this bad boy has been floating around all day yesterday on twitter and blogs, the good people at Warp are nailing it this year. Rising 5 has this Onra feel to it but the highs and instruments really make your eyebrows raise in a good way.
To be honest I never listened to Calvin Harris, you know how you just see a musician’s name around certain brands and promotion that you just never get around to hearing what they do because they’re tied in with just odd pop culture that you’d never feel like you would enjoy whatever the person is offering creatively? well thats how I feel about Calvin Harris BUT when this song picks up after the intro I really had to throw all that other crap out the window that’s tied to Calvin Harris in my head, all in all pretty great remix work here Mr. Harris, is the album good?

I loved Underworld when Darren Emmerson was still in the group. I really loved Beaucoup Fish too. Sadly I got it on release day and on the same day some major events took place in my life. So that kinda dampened the album for me. So every so often when I break out the album, it takes me back to that time and digs up the memories. It’s weird how sometimes you can be listening to an album or song during something and forever that music will be embedded with that mood/memory.
You know, you kinda nailed it with how I treat some music sometime in your description of Calvin. I’ll read a lot of reviews and see certain names dropped a bunch and for some odd reason it’ll make me NOT want to listen to their music. Kinda like “On this album blah blah has some (insert dropped name here) programmed drums on the title track”. I might not of ever heard of “dropped name” but now I don’t feel like diggin to find out what they are going on about. weird.
