Vanilla - Sweet Talk [mp3]

A really nice throw-back sounding instrumental hip hop track.  Helping me get over the mid-afternoon hump.  From the album of the same name.

The New Pornographers - Fantasy Fools [mp3]

This whole album is SO wonderful. The harmonies! The build ups! The wide open choruses!

I can’t remember the last time I’ve been thrilled with an album to a point where I just listen to it over and over and over.

Busta Rhymes - Thank You (feat. Qtip, Kanye West and Lil Wayne) [mp3]

Second addendum to previous post: this one is also in that Jazzy Jeff set.  Spent $1.29 on iTunes this morning and used this track as my commute to work power anthem.

Also, someone needs to take that four on the floor piano loop from the Alicia Myers sample used in this track and make a house-y instrumental re-edit of it.

Janet Jackson - If (Kaytranada Remix) [mp3]

Addendum to previous post: found this little jem tucked away in that Jazzy Jeffy DJ set.  Janet Jackson’s If gets modernized and reedited and all of her euphemisms for cock get looped a bunch too… and it’s pretty great.

Disclosure - When a Fire Starts to Burn (C2C Remix) [mp3]

Slowed down and scratched up!

Daft Punk - Off/On (Atom Remix) [mp3]

Look, I know it’s 2014 and talking about homemade Daft Punk remixes is boring beyond belief, but… HOOBOY, Thomas Atom’s After The Robots remix tribute album is so good.

Everything sounds so fresh and different.  Yes, it’s a reinterpretation of Daft Punk and their samples and hooks, but there’s such a thrifty attitude towards the source material and such playfulness with new melodies.  Even tired loops like the vocals from Technologic have a totally different feel now.

Röyksopp & Robyn - Do It Again [mp3]

I know I’m a minute late to this party, but I’m enjoying the Röyksopp & Robyn EP.

First Summer Jam of 2014?

Boogie Down Productions - My Philosophy [mp3]

LIFE HACK: listen to this as you sluggishly commute to work in the morning, you’ll immediately feel indestructible.

Or if you’re not working today and are having a mellow morning enjoy the Stanley Turrentine track which was the sample source.

This song has been stuck in my head for FIVE days.

Beck - Morning [mp3]

Is it still cool to like Beck? Is it even still cool to be cool? Either way, I like the new Beck album a bunch… and like this song in particular.
