The Streets + Homerun + OTT + RSD

Posted by Jakub

OTT - Skylon
This The Streets song came to me after Sam and I shared a few UK videos that we liked, the lyrics make me think about the times I use to be a silly worrywort in high school over girlfriends, ahh glad those feelings don’t come around anymore.

The Balearic sound is still ramping up into the rest of the world, slow disco seems to be creeping into the main stream even. iTunes has been in full support of Eskimo’s incredible Cosmic Balearic Beats series which volume 1 included this Homerun track that’s a full on epic bomb. I am still waiting for a song as gorgeous as this to make it to the masses, these instrumentals just have such thought out choices in synths and kicks compared all the studio club crap.

I actually found this cover art by OTT before I found the song. I can’t say i’m in full support of the song because of the vocal but that driving Telefon Tel Aviv low end synth keeps me from thinking about the bad vox, also a ton flute action for the flute fans out there.

UK’s Dub banger RSD puts out an extraordinary track called Good Energy, the beginning synth vividly remind me of ambulance’s in the EU in the 80’s and early 90’s and cold rainy days in UK/DE/PL, I can’t believe a simple dubstep track can give off such crazy exact memories.

The Streets – Blinded By the Lights


Homerun – The Killer Storm


OTT – A Shower of Sparks


RSD – Good Energy

Auto tune is enough for me to skip a song in any genre lately. Thank goodness for the internet rejecting it so vociferously. Hopefully its ubiquity will subside and it can stick around in places that it belongs.

Maybe you should consider changing the player to one that would have volume control? It would be nice.

And, as usual, thanks for the great music.

Ott is for people tripping balls; he’s on Twisted Records with Shpongle. Don’t worry too much about the vocals :-P
