If you know me well, you'll know that I like listening to all types of music. I spend time just lurking about on last.fm, whatthefuckshouldilistentonow, and SoundCloud looking for obscure artists, tracks, and remixes. I bulk download/torrent all my music (illegal as fuck, but yolo) and then I'll compile playlists on iTunes. Sometimes the playlists would be themed (examples: bloodrush, ass-related, weed-related, chill songs) but I'll always have this one playlist that would hold all my favourite songs at the moment. It usually stays the same for 1-2 weeks with the exception of the removal/addition of a few tracks, but in 3-4 weeks it is completely revamped. Below is my current playlist.
|Left Boy - Jack Sparrow (Single)|
|Gil Scott-Heron And Jamie xx - We're New Here|
From my playlist, you can see I'm an obvious lover of remixes. Another noteworthy remix artist is Jamie xx, member of The xx. He remixed late Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here and retitled it as We're New Here, making it a Gil-Scott Heron and Jamie xx collaboration. In these remixes you can enjoy both the gruffness of Gil Scott-Heron's voice and enjoy the cutting-edge and talented beats dropped by Jamie xx. The track titled I'm New Here is a perfect example of the mix. Starting off with just Gil speaking, 'I did not become someone different, nor did I want to be / But I'm new here. Will you show me around?', then breaking into a quavering tonic of ambiance, and after a minute, taking another direction into Jamie's eargasmic beat-dropping.
Anyways, I recommend everyone to listen to this playlist and all the tracks, no matter what music taste you supposedly have, because I swear this playlist will convert you. The mix of music will definitely give put you in an ambivalent mood. If anyone wants a download link, comment below and put a Mediafire link up.
