DJ SHADOW’s new material is incredibly sick man/ blowing up real big/ destroying dancefloors etc I’ll let you choose your musical cliché of choice. Cliches aside the underlying sentiment is accurate, as new track ‘I’m Excited’ shows.
On a slightly different tip, okay humongously different is a track called ‘Tenere Taqqim Tossam’ by TINARIWEN. Hard to describe, especially without resorting to the rather patronising ‘world music’ tag. For me it’s just a great catchy tune with a slightly hypnotic edge that I really like, and ultimately with music that is all that matters isn’t it? Whether it connects with you the listener.
On yet another musical tangent CHROMEO being Remixed by HERCULES AND LOVE AFFAIR is one of those combos that I know I’m going to love just from hearing the peeps involved. ‘When The Night Falls’ isn’t quite what I expected, it’s less Disco more Deep, but I Defo like it, a lot. House Music all night long.
