This Is Catchy

I'm a sucker for gimmicks. I bought an iPod Touch, a KP3, a Kaossilator, and I came pretty damn close to buying myself a DSi. Coincidentally, I'm a sucker for popped out songs that sound "catchy." I can't help myself.

First, let's get this 800lb gorilla out of the way.

BSOD - This Is The Hook [click to download]

Next, some goodies from the East. Wulf just did a great post on a Japanese group, m-flo, but let's tap into the other Beast of the East, India. Unfortunately the original version is barely electronic, but hey, some people dance to this stuff.

Panjabi MC - Beware Of The Boys [click to download]

And here's the Jay Z rap version that was a pretty big hit here in the states a few years back. To be honest, I find this one equally catchy. The beat is pretty nice too. But oh well, haters gon' hate. Wouldn't call this a remix, but hey, it's not up to me.

Not doing it for you? How about some blast-to-the-face JPop, courtesy of Ryu & Sota. Some vomit at this stuff, but after a stressful day, sometimes I like to unwind with the drug-frenzied hyperbeats that powerpop trance has to offer. It also makes for a great DDR song :P

Ryu* vs. Sota - Go Beyond!! [click to download]

And lastly, the second release from our favorite new-new-new wave rock group "Jamaica." Produced by Xavier de Rosnay and Daft Punk's sound engineer, this power group is bound to go places. I can feel it.

I'm gonna be honest, this was a pretty odd post, mainly because I have some conflicting emotions in my life right now. How are things for you guys? Let me know in the comments below.

Who cares, just enjoy :)

The BSOD was so good until that annoying voice ruined the song.

How do I feel? Bummed. It's that time of year when school REALLY ramps up and everybody's busier than should be legal. I've only received like 5 text messages since Saturday. Neither of my best friends have been on Facebook so I haven't heard much from them (I don't see people very often). So I've been compensating by immersing myself in my Eagle Project, learning to produce WELL, and listening to really light, feel-good house and electronica. Starting like next week though... heads will be rolling.

So, the only one of those devices which is actually worth owning (the DSi), is the one you decided not to get?

You're breaking my heart over here Prez.

Well, that, and I'm buying a DSi XL this weekend, haha.

Oh, there's this record I heard in East London's Big Chill Bar a few weeks ago and has been an excellent prelude to this year's spring for me! Catchy as f#ck.

Tensnake - Coma Cat

haha @phil, I already have a DS (old silver one), so why shell out the money for a DSi? :P
