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.
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 don’t know what’s up but those are the current songs that fit my mood ; might be because of those rainy days or the nostalgia of losing my entire iTunes’ music collection. Last week I’ve been watching both The Wall & The Wall synchronized with Alice in Wonderland so I thought I would add at least two songs from this beastly cd. Lean Wit It, Rock Wit it is an old single we used to listen and I had to keep up with this playlist’s mood. This is a good example of vocal modulation that turned great. Pitch and tone are well matched with the downbeat tempo and keys. [“You little girls like candy?”]
Then I got baile funked mood ; with a switching bpm song from “Pristine Blusters” remixing the ‘Positif’ hit from “Mr. Oizo”. Other songs are mostly what I browsed on soundcloud and the latest youtube videos I’ve been posting on the facebook page. I suggest burning all of those songs on a cd and pop it in your car or sound system. For those who care I aimed for the 320kbps.
Bikini nous avait frappé avec le ep concerning the number 7 and your love (2008). Deux ans plus tard, leur CD tourne encore 24/7 dans ma voiture. Ils ont l’air super occupé avec beaucoup d’autres projets, mais ils ont sorti dernièrement une nouvelle chanson et un video clip allant avec.
Les séquences du clip sont du film “Celebrity” de Woody Allen (1998).
PeaceTreaty, association de Josh Anaya et Sam Hiller (Groove Radio), nous envoit une track produite avec Disk Jo Slim. Ça me fait penser aux montréalais NROTB. La sortie de ce petit bijoux est due prochainement sur beatport alors on leur souhaite bonne chance et on les envie un peu parce qu’ils habitent en Californie et que mon surf fait pas mal pitié tout seul.
J’avais post le remix You’ve Got the Love par Adam Smith il y a quelques semaines et il avait été assez populaire donc il nous a renvoyé un bootleg de I Feel Better (Hot Chip). Vous pouvez le suivre sur twitter ou allez l’encourager via son myspace.
