DELPHIC – “THIS MOMENTARY” Genre: Electronic
“Let’s do something real.”
So, being the music nerd that I am, I decided to figure out exactly how Jason Derulo sampled “Hide and Seek” by Imogen Heap for his “Whatcha Say” song. Took me like five minutes! :D I recorded the process and posted it on YouTube for internet posterity :-B
All I did was increase the pitch of Immi’s original by 10.29% and the tempo by 15%
Because…it’s the WEEKEND! :D
SO here’s some of what I’ve been “bumpin”. I was in a chill mood pretty much all day today, and most of the time the music I listen to will usually reflect the mood I’m in. Sooo without further adooo…
WASHED OUT – “FEEL IT ALL AROUND”
JUST found out about this guy, I like his creative sampling of old records.
THEOPHILUS LONDON – “TNT”
Keep an eye out for Theophilus London this year, he’s working on some new material and it should be FRESHHH, er “PHRESH”. Whatever the kids these days say…
CRYSTAL CASTLES – “1991”
Really, if you haven’t heard of these two by now then I don’t know what to tell you. They are insane in the best of ways!
BLOOD ORANGE – “S’COOLED”
Blood Orange is the side project of Devonté Hynes, better known as Lightspeed Champion. While Lightspeed has more of an alternative pop rock sound, Blood Orange’s style is more similar to 80’s funk and soul.
XV – “FALL OUT THE SKY”
XV is another rapper I’d keep an eye on in 2010, he’s got excellent lyrical ability to go along with beats catchy enough to play at any club.
That’s it for now, hope everyone is enjoying their weekend :P
