Andreya Triana - Lost Where I Belong (Flying Lotus Remix)
"I first heard Andreya Triana on Bonobo's latest album entitled Black Sands. That's an AWESOME album btw, definitiely worth picking up, er, downloading? How you get your music is your business. I actually didn't like the records that Andreya was on, haha. I know, so how did I get more of her music? Easy, I'm a music stalker. I lookup EVERYTHING related to EVERYTHING I listen to. There isn't too much music in my library where I don't have some interesting tidbit of information to share about the artist. Andreya has some decent music out there but this Flying Lotus remix (off her Bonobo produced album of the same name) is a real standout. Flylo can do no wrong."
Flying Lotus - Untitled
Michael Jackson - Ain't No Sunshine (Benny Blanco Remix)
"This is one of my favourite songs of all time. OF ALL TIME. Lil' MJ covered the Booker T. produced record on his debut album Got to Be There. Decades later it's gotten an electro/dub treatment by wunderkind producer Benny Blanco of Katy Perry/Ke$ha fame."
Beth Gibbons - L'annulaire
"Apparently Portishead's Beth Gibbons is ALWAYS cupping the microphone at her performances. Seriously, I couldn't find a decent photo where she wasn't choking the mic. That's cool though. If you're not a Portishead fan then you don't know who Beth Gibbons is (and I have no idea how you even found my blog) but just know that Portishead was music of a generation. Mostly a generation of stoners and emo kids, but that doesn't make it any less true. Beth was tapped to compose the soundtrack for a film titled "L'annulaire". Now, I don't know what the means but I know it's French.
I first heard this song on the FACT Mix by Ahu. That mixtape had a tracklist but I'm an idiot and I forgot about the tracklist so months later I used Shazam on my Blackberry to try and find the song. Since the soundtrack was unreleased, Shazam couldn't find a match. That's when I remember the playlist. Problem was, I could only find a crappy lo-fi mp3 version of the album. I was happy with this for about 2 hours, when my privileged ears could no longer take the pain of less than 320kbps. So I searched and searched and finally came across a 256kbps version, which I am more than satisfied with. Beautiful record. I've already listened to it 750 times. Make that 751."
