late night dj'ing yesterday. i woke up at 6:30 pm today, don't think i've slept that late since sophomore year at college...i'm trying to remember a rough setlist of what i dropped at the show, but i think it's gonna be an exercise in futility. thank you sparks (!).
but here's a song that absolutely killed last night:
the temptations - papa was a rolling stone (cosmo baker applause remix)
and one song that was a total failure (even though it's an awesome track!):
cansei de ser sexy - let's make love and listen to death from above
speaking of cosmo baker, the new lemon-red mix is up for february - and there are three killer mixes from the guys behind dj/remix/production powerhouse the rub.
lots of blogosphere (did i just use that word? smack me in the mouth..) action surrounding the new yeah yeah yeahs single "gold lion" - especially over whether or not the diplo remix does justice to the original. i think part of the problem is that most people - including me until very recently - were listening to a low-quality mp3 taken from the middle of diplo's set from the guggenheim. take a listen to this version of the remix which has been pitch corrected, and grab the original version as well.
yeah yeah yeahs - gold lion (corrected diplo mix)
yeah yeah yeahs - gold lion
and peep the video here
lastly, did you really think i'd hold out on y'all?
prince - black sweat
