Took me longer than I thought but at least I’m feeling this Joe Cocker on acid vibe ; People are skeptical about reggaeton taking over some of the electronica sub-genres but here I quote Aeroplane “Genres are for journalists”.

Hey there, we are still working on a new home but OTSOTM is still alive and we have plans for you guys this summer. I will cut the shit shat right now and post all the top billin leaching I have done last month. Let this be your summer playlist.
Got some time off to finally build a decent length playlist of my usual music style : low keys, funky club beats, experimental, disco […] but like someone recently tagged his song on soundcloud : genres are for journalists. Thus, just let it flow and listen to a song all the way through. This playlist is all about that considering they each have a different style and a different mood. And as for the quote in this title, some of you will recall this saying by James Dean but he surely wasn’t the first one to state the obvious. You guys can see it the way you want it and this is what quotes are for but to me it’s a carpe diem euphemism. The point being: yes do live your life to the fullest but keep a certain path to where you would like to be ; not restrictions but mostly a guide.
Enough with the philosophy over dead people, enjoy.
Those songs are dope and between exams stress kinda mood. For some explicit reasons, exam sessions bring up a load of tension in my relations with others and I tend to have very little patience when it comes to this. This is the glue holding my brain together ; thus listen to those tracks & get your moves on if you want to eradicate what’s left of the post-exam crap.
Musical activities lack any obvious survival value. Why then is music so pervasive in human life? Music appears to be a pure pleasure technology, a cocktail of recreational drugs that we ingest through the ear to stimulate a mass of pleasure circuits at once. 1) music has prosody-like properties, and the brain rewards the analysis of prosodic signals (patterns of linguistic rhythm and intonation) because prosody is an important component of language; 2) music is rich in harmonic sounds (sounds in which frequency components are integer multiples of some fundamental frequency), and the brain rewards the analysis of such sounds because harmonicity is an acoustic cue used to identify sound sources, an important part of auditory scene analysis; 3) music can evoke strong emotions because it contains pitch and rhythm patterns that resemble our species’ emotional calls, and 4) because it contains sound patterns reminiscent of evocative environmental sounds (e.g. “safe” or “unsafe” sounds, such as thunder, wind, or growls); 5) musical rhythm engenders rhythmic movement (e.g., in dance), and such movement is rewarded by the brain because rhythmic motor patterns are associated with biologically meaningful behaviors, such as walking, running, or digging.”- as written by Aniruddh Patel, ideas of Darwin & Pinker.
From Boba Threat : “A WORD ON MY ‘SAMPLING’: i used many different sounds that i lifted from many different records. if i had done this for an original track, that may or may not be a thing to be frowned upon. but ultimately, this is a bootleg. it’s just a mild re-visioning of the original. when making this, my first priority was to make something that honors TPR, ghosts of venice, sneak and van helden, and the other artists i sampled.
p.s. if you can ID the other records i sampled, you deserve a no-prize.”
I was listening to that song one year ago because of Mark “The Cobrasnake” Hunter. A lot of people already pointed this out : the song/the girl/the camera shots are pure hotness. To whoever is out there : do you like bass ?
I’m no fan of mashups or multiple edits but that one is a must have. It sounds more like a pre-made mix you could play while mixing so you get time to fill up your glass ; that might be why he named it bootleg instead of mashup. This song was introduced to me by DJ Pekas on “The New Workout Plan” mix that you can find below the post.
Once in a while I enjoy listening to old school songs and see what are the new remixes. This is a good way to find new artists that actually take time to give you feedback and help you out. Danktra is a solid producer so check out his songs ; definitely a car banger
Remixing your own songs give you a step ahead of everyone and more flexibility in your mixes. I’m not a fan of Hyper Crush considering they are a pop machine but I always give their songs a listen. Once again this is from DJ Pekas.
Hope you guys got more luck with the eclipse than I did ; all I could see were clouds.
Right on time with last night’s lunar eclipse (referring to the original videoclip), Bjork’s ‘Dull flame of desire’ is kinda hard to remix. Even doh they titled this remix “for girls”, I find it way more manly than the original one. Give some time for the song to build up / enjoy.
Kanye West – “Workout Plan”
Hyper Crush – “Kick Us Out (Hyper Crush Remix)”
Tonic – “Tonic – Bad Girl (Original Mix)”
Chuckie & Gregori Klosman vs Chocolate Puma – “Mutfakta Chants (Nick Svenson Bootleg)”
Mike Posner – “Cooler Than Me (Jistortion Remix)”
Loopers – “Ghetto 2010 (Artistic Raw Remix)”
R3hab & Ferruccio Salvo – “Keep Up For Your Love (Club Mix)”
Damianito DJ – “I Got My Eye On You Re Edit”
Laserkraft 3D – “Nein Mann (Kevstar & Demian Ngo Dutch Bootleg)”
I’m still tergiversating trough the music I love and I guess that is a good thing. Now try mixing those tracks and you get yourself a headache. It took me all night to find those but it was worth it. ZitanB’s ‘Lone Maya’ is a “Classical Tribal Trip Step” aka ambient music released this week that makes you want to light it up and lay back. It is made up of bootleg samples from: Diabate (West Africa Unwired), Isaac Stern (Violin), Jacqueline du Pre (Cello), and others.
Second one on my list is the refix of a remix (makes me thinks of vocals “this is the refix inside the remix” but I can’t recall the song) : DJ Globa made that smooth tribal mashup of his production ‘Zoum Zoum Riddim’ and ‘Shake it to the Ground’s’ Rye Rye acapella. Then he uploaded the file and asked for collaboration on that one. Murkules did refix that song and there goes the result. When I first listened to DJ Globa’s I knew there was something missing and Murkules stepped in.
Tupac is the rapper no one can say shit on ; he is a legend. ‘Do for love’ was unreleased with the title ‘Sucka for love’ which is still available. Vodka and Milk made a good but too high bpm for the smooth vocals, it reached the popular page of hypem. Bart B More’s Brap song makes me think of Nuage Eliott’s remix of Mr. Oizo ‘Bleue’.
Lets go back in the 80s clubbin’ with some swaggalicious moves + we have another remix of Nosaj Thing by Boreta. I was thinking of the incoming igloofest and Drop The Lime popped in my mind so I bring back those memories with an unclassifiable remix of Canblaster.
It’s that magic time, once a day
No matter how horrible the day was, something happens
The sky starts to darken and the city turns orange
Magical orange that puts a smile in our hearts
It’s that time that makes the night welcomed.
