Ananda Project – Moments before dreaming (idjut boys mix)
Remixed in 2009 this dreamy track with soft vocals over a memorable bass synth, stays with you. Championed by Maceo Plex on recent resident advisor podcast, this track features on chill out albums as well as deep house albums and comfortably crosses over many genres.
This is such a beautiful song. Its claimed its about a mixture of different themes. First verse being a relationship breakdown, second verse being about the death of someone and the third perhaps about the miscarriage. Each person being someone great.
Someone Great was taken from the massively acclaimed and already touted by many as an album of the decade ‘Sound Of Silver’ . With its emotive refrain and rhythmic precision ‘Someone Great’ was recognized critically as an album standout and become a key part of their live set. Its release is backed by a spectacular array of new and exclusive mixes of other S.O.S standouts in the form Soulwax (“Get Innocuous”), Carl Craig (“Sound of Silver“), Sorcerer (“Us v Them”) and Gucci Sound System (“Time to Get Away”). Award winning Artist/filmmaker Doug Aitken is currently shooting an experimental short film for “Someone Great.”
Caribou – Found Out
Favourite track for Caribou album swim.. Swim was released in April 2010. It was his first album featuring new material since the 2008 Polaris Music Prize-winning Andorra. It featured great changes in comparison to its predecessor, deviating from the psychedelic pop sound and taking more influences from various kinds of electronic dance music´, especially deep house and minimal techno.
Dan Snaith, the creative force behind Caribou, said that playing more DJ gigs, such as those at London’s Plastic People, influenced him to embrace dance music and a greater range of frequencies in his music.
Prefab Sprout – King of Rock N Roll.
The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll is a single by the British rock group Prefab Sprout, released in 1988. It was the second single taken from their album of that year, From Langley Park to Memphis, and makes reference to a washed-up ’50s star who is only remembered for his one-hit novelty song, which is sung in the chorus. It remains as the band’s biggest success in their native UK, where it reached #7 on the UK Singles Chart, and spent 10 weeks in the listings.Producer Thomas Dolby added a synth bass in the verses to mimic the sound of a bullfrog, tying them into the chorus. The song’s chorus, “Hot dog/Jumping frog/Albuquerque!” is supposed to be the song’s character’s sole claim to fame.
We just think its cool !!!
