Some Gnarls Barkley here, I've been listening to them a lot lately, and this track's a stand-out for me.

@Cand: That Bibio was bananas I'd like to hear more.

 

 

Gnarls Barkley

DJ Danger Mouse actually has a new colab project he just put out with the lead singer of The Shins called Broken Bells, very different sounding but interesting never the less.

 

Here's a cut from it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm really picky on World Music as I got a bit burnt out on it when I was younger my father

would listen to it quite a bit but there are some good tunes out there if you go siftin'.

 

 

 

Mr. Scruff is one of my favorite sample maestros this side of Kid Koala. This song cracks me up every time.

That was really, really trippy, teetering somewhere between blissful and nightmarish. Very cool you put that together yourself. The Blurry face looks like that dude, Eric Stoltz from that old movie Mask with Cher.

 

Suppose it's a good time to transition into the evening.

 

 

 

 

I'm sure our friends "Down Unda" couldn't escape these guys over the last 2 years as I know they got major play there but this easily in my top ten for 2008.

 

 

 

Dreamy almost MIDI sounding Trip Hop Instrumental.

 

 

 

Classic. Seriously, love this.

Another great post, meta. Almost.

Empire Of The Sun is not for me but the last two ones - especially the trip-hop thing - were really good.

Also, the last one catched my immediate attention remembering that that The Stylistic song was heavily sampled in Westside Connection's '96 song Gangstas Make The World Go Round. Whadda ya know, the world is small.

 

 

Talking about hip-hop samples, here's a sweet one. I bet you know where it is sampled.

Not to forget that nothing can be as good or relaxing as The Temptations

 

 

 

Okay I guess I'm fallling out of topic again, so I'm getting back. Here is one of the very best chill-out/jazz masterpieces you can find.

Yeaaaaa.. Empire isn't for everyone. I really dig them as they make me nolstalgic for a lot of the 80's synthpop era but I'm starting to think that album is going to be a 2 hit wonder because that dude from PNAU ended up leaving and going back to his own band later in the year.

 

Anyways, it's a new day.

 

 

 

 

I found this while tracking down something for the Hip Hop topic yesterday and really liked it.

 

 

 

Thievery Corporation, always a safe bet. So consistant on Everything they do.

 

 

 

Bristol 101, I've pitched a lot of woo to this little tune.

I was going to post another original, but that Death by Chocolate was nice, reminded me of this band my friend showed me yesterday called Jaga Jazzist, this song Animal Chin is insane, it starts out disjointed for a couple seconds, so give it a chance.

 

As someone so eloquently puts it in a comment, "it's a wonderful mix-together of bebop jazz, house and a bit of d'n'b biggrin.gif love it."

That was way trippy. It's funny when you watch something like that and realize how much the mind compensates for empty spaces. All the animals and animals with people faces in that are essentially about 4 or 5 photos being shifted around to simulate animation about a minute in you stop considering the fact they are cut out bits of photo. Very cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love Horace Andy, combine him with Massive Attack and I'm just lifted.

 

 

 

Another great combo.

 

 

 

Used to force my wife to listen to this when we first started dating. Beautiful Song.

Two of the very best Chillout tracks by one of the very best Chillout artists,

Finley Quaye

Almost forgot to add one of my favourite chill-out anthems, and I do mean anthem - it's so well known, people hear it and don't even know where. I'm talking about At The River by the legendary Groove Armada.

Thank you, good sir. Definitely enjoying Mr. Quaye, keep'em coming.

 

@Masterkraft: HOLEE crapples! like seriously that is SO crazy I was just thinking of that song after listening to GoDK's tunes, how weird is that?

 

 

 

 

Another great track off the Aim: Hinterland Compilation

 

 

 

Roots Manuva, anyone?

 

 

 

Moby's kinda hit or miss for me but I'm definitely liking this track off his new album, Hotel.

This truly is a badass topic, so much of the music on here is awesome.

 

Here's two more original tracks. The first one is just a beat, but a fat beat at that (give it a second to kick in, it has a sort of organic first half minute). Second one is a track I made completely composed of sampling from my library of music, there'd be some things I'd do differently now, but it's pretty cool.

@860: As always, thanks for sharing giving that tune a 2nd play as I type this.

 

@Cand: You have my nose, it scares me to think I may have had something to do with your production. That out of focus bowl of Lucky Charms on "In the Water" looks quite delish, I must say. On a serious tip you do isolations very well, on both of those.

 

 

 

 

Nice.

 

 

 

Mellow and groovin'- love it.

 

 

 

Did I mention, Karin Dreijer Andersson scares the f*ck out of me?

A little dub flashback, a dub-le classic... tounge.gif

 

Scratch Perry in 1982 remixing "I Am the Upsetter" from the 60's.

 

Strictly hashbowl listening.

 

 

 

"Jah Rastafari smokin' a spliff an' he don't want no disturbance..."

 

... more Scratch Perry for a rainy night

 

 

 

... and Junior Murvin, "Police and Thieves" from 1976

 

 

 

 

 

Chill to da dub, ya mon?

Ya mon, irie.

 

That Police and Thieves is a definite win.

 

Well one classic dub track deserves another.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A lot of people have probably heard this track and didn't know who it was by as it's featured in a lot of soundtracks and such.

 

 

 

One of my favs off the GTA IV Soundtrack, I can hear Dr. Dre rapping over this everytime the intro cues up.

Hahah, yeah, Axlerod is great. In sampled songs and those who hip hop did not make famous.

 

I've been enjoying these Curtis Mayfield tunes the last week:

Police and thieves is brilliant, I love that sh*t. Bank robber is a cracker aswell!

 

Heres a good Dub track from Leftöver Crack, just a totally random instrumental.

 

Listen to this, I love it.

@Cheat: Curtis is undeniable. Main composer of the Superfly Soundtrack. Crazy to think that "All Night Long" may have been playing on a radio in the kitchen when I was sleeping in my crib.

 

@Wreckless Jake: Really like that, makes me want to hang out at the beach in Brevard with a few friends, sipping a beer and passing a J.

 

@Whoever pinned the topic: Thanks, I'll do my best to always be a gracious host and honor the confidence you placed in the thread.

 

 

 

I usually drop 3 tracks as the standard form here but this particular song stands out for me. Things have been a bit hectic as of late, around the world and even here at the forums people can't quite seem to escape conflict, tension and the fears that hold them back from making them happy. I was a Correctional Officer (that's "prison guard" for the lamen) for close to 3 years just after I graduated high school. Those were 3 of the unhappiest years of my life, just seeing other people bound not only physically by their actions and fears but mentally and spiritually as well. I turn on the news, walk down the street and see a ton of people in situations and with mentalities that make them no different than those behind bars. If perception is our reality then we really need to start making mental freedom a big part of our outlook.

 

Listen to the simple words on this track and let me know if you're feeling the general sentiment.

 

 

 

 

"Penitentiary"

Well I'm waiting on the day

When the people walk free to see

When the penitentiary is on fire

When there's no need

To bleed

For your mother or your brother

Or the one that comes before you whoa

Well I'm waiting on a time when people walk free to see

From the penitentiary in our mind

When there's no need to bleed

For your father

Or your son

Or the one that you've become

When the penitentiary is on fire

When the penitentiary is on fire

 

I'm waiting on the day

When the people walk free to see

When the penitentiary is on fire

there's no need

To bleed

For your father or your son

Or the one that you've become and a

I'm waiting on a time when people walk

free to see

when the penitentiary in our mind

there's no need to bleed

For your mother

Or your brother

or the one that come before ya yea

 

When the penitentiary is on fire

When the penitentiary is on fire

When the penitentiary is on fire

When the penitentiary is on fire

Simply some of the best electronic sh*t out there, by a guy who simply dabbled in it between acoustic projects.

Yea, Sufjan has had an assload of critical acclaim in recent years, a truly versatile music artist. I've always liked his haunting, slightly chilling, John Wayne Gacy, Jr from his Illinois release. So pretty, you'd hardly know it was talking about a convicted serial killer if you weren't paying attention to the lyrics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was dropped in the Hip Hop topic a few weeks back and I haven't been able to shake it, such an epicly smooth track.

 

 

 

Speaking of epic tracks. Unfortunately, a sort of one hit wonder here in the states but what a great use of looping strings. Humorous video to boot.

Not just posting this because I stole my name from them. Their second album Fist Of God came out early last year and I've sadly overlooked it.

@ Ats.: Thanks for posting, always good to see a new face in here. FC Kahuna, definitely has a groovin' vibe on all their tracks.

 

@Masterkraft: The synth lead on that track is just str8 80's, love it.

 

 

 

 

Often compared to La Roux for that bonafide New Nu Wave sound, I don't dig everything she does but this ones catchy.

 

 

 

Dan the Automator & Prince Paul collaboration, you really can't go wrong.

 

 

 

One of RJD2's better tracks, kind of upbeat but funky.

One of the all time great funk songs on an album that solidified the aesthetic principles of the genre.

 

 

 

 

Sly Stone is a gifted multi-instrumentalist and songwriter whose work is greatly under appreciated by the current generations.

 

 

=============

 

 

 

 

Minutemen put out the great album Double Nickels On the Dime back in '84, with over 40 songs most very short there's a lot of excellent post-punk on here.

Yes indeed, Sly Stone is pretty much the Patron Saint of Funk, easily rivaling Clinton or Bootsy Collins.

 

I think my cousin Paul, would really dig that Minutemen, I'll pass it along.

 

 

 

 

Simply beautiful song. Play this for your girl or which ever barn yard animal you've chosen to be romantically aquainted with.

 

 

 

My wife turned me on to these guys recently, very dream like overtones.

 

 

 

Pretty much an instant classic, went into heavy rotation in a lot of Coffee House DJ's playlists when it dropped.

The Minutemen's song Candarelli posted is really nice.

 

 

This song is really good and relaxing:

 

 

I like this one too:
