You know when you come across a song with so little plays and it’s so well put together you think it’s suspect. Like someone is trying to fuck with you and it’s really some famous band you don’t know about because this is really not your genre.
I still don’t know if Sillyboy is legit, but it don’t matter. ‘On and On’ is all I care about. It’s got the funk in the bass that’s pretty much a requirement of mine in today’s listening with a legitimate voice backed. I haven’t locked down the style in his voice yet, it’s soundin depressingly preachy, but it clashes with the guitar well.
Here’s a special one for ya. It’s the first story I’ve written on here, at least a personal one. And of course it’s accompanied with a playlist, which tells the story much better. My writing only covers the first night and only 95% of that. Ya gotta earn the rest.
I was talking to my coworkers about the music in my Late Night Jazz list. While it’s definitely not the music of the early turn of last century, it still gives me that feeling of jazz for the evening, unconventional as it may be. It’s all covered in electronic sounds and that’s where our opinions stray.
Same goes with our funk-infused playlist, The Funk Shall Be Within You. It may go off into electro at times, but the feeling of funk is strong throughout and I don’t think any word could describe it better, especially electronic. Other than nufunk or any other made up offshoot, but that’s a whole other debate.
You know this guy can play guitar when he’s got me off my ass dancing better than any edm. Most music takes vocals for me to connect, but Josh J’s guitar talks wonders.
Just listen to Babble’s Sundazin for me, all the way through. That ending! Woof.
But he’s got much more than that. That’s what’s so amazing about him. Consistency. And he sets up his guitar well (he can produce).
I love high hats especially with something sexy wrapped around em. I first found this off beat, soulful shit in our vapor lists, but unlike that this is much more hip hop based and much sexier.
We get into some future glam towards the middle and end it a little lighter with my favorite hip hop out right now. So stick til the end.
Shit this is a fun one! I don’t know where James Curd got these vocals from, he won’t return my voicemails, but they make me smile every time.
I love what jacking is and the music it’s created. I’ll make a playlist sometime. Check out the documentary, Pump Up the Volume, if you don’t know what jacking is. It’s a very informative, long documentary about the origins of house music.
First half is on the lighter side of deep house. Most the music deals in Love and the shit parts of it. Reminds me a lot of our Horizontal Disco playlist, but a little deeper with the house.
The other half is on a much heavier side of bass that’s a bit better for dancing. Late night raging that is. Both are good for dancing, depending on your mood.
Let me know how you’d order these differently if you had the chance.
We didn’t really post any house music until a few years into the blog. For all I can tell Luminaire was our first and he’s still one of our favorite. Right now I’m thinkin the favorite.
The man finds the best vocals in disco and puts such heavy house in, that four on the floor kinda fashion. But it’s the small adjustments he makes to his music that makes it not sound so fuckin generic. Something many famous house producers need to recognize.
Luminaire has one of the healthiest collections of hits out there. And when he took down his SoundCloud, we got the honor of putting some of his best back up.
Last year we had five playlists highlighting our favorite remixes called, Remixed Right, but we decided this year to split them into themes. First up comes our chill hip hop remixes.
This is purely mainstream hits remixed. 50/50 on good rap vs not so good, but the remixes do their job. Making shit sound good (to relax to).
