Young MC - Bust A Move (Diplo Remix)
"Next days function high class luncheon
Food they're serving, you're stone-cold munchin
Music comes on people start to dance
But then you ate so much you nearly split your pants
A girl starts walking guys start gawking
Sits down next to you and starts talking
Says she wants to dance cause she likes to groove
So come on fatso and just bust a move "
- Young MC
Bonobo - El Toro
"Bonobo makes the kind of music that you want playing as you drive one of these along some ridiculously picturesque coastline in some country you can't spell, where all the women have names you can't pronounce...all the while with tears in your eyes. (I don't know what you're crying about either. It just seems fitting.) His latest album "Black Sands" has one such record and it's called "El Toro". For me it all happens at 0:50 when those horns swell and the drums go ballistic. But that's just a taste. As the record progresses the intensity crests somewhere in the Heavens and troughs in the bowels of Hell and...I'm crying now."
Kanye West samples: Mike Oldfield - In High Places (feat Jon Anderson)
"As a record producer I'm always looking for inspiration. I typically look in my own music library. I just like to sample stuff I listen to anyway. I'm always blown away when I hear a record that I already own that another producer samples and turns into a great record. It takes a certain ear and mind to find inspiration in what others may find to be completely obscure material. Such is the case with Kanye West and this 80's Mike Oldfield record. I know my mp3 lists the song artist as Jon Anderson (frontman of legendary prog rock band YES) but the record is actually from Oldfield's 1983 album Crises (hence the album artwork above). The sample you're listening for is at 0:45. Check out "Dark Fantasy" from Kanye's new album below as well. Enjoy."
