I haven't posted in quite a while ashamedly, and introductions were never my strong point, so let just get straight into it!
Firstly, a track I've had on repeat for the last week or three, Daylight by Aesop Rock. I enjoy Aesop's use of doubled up vocals, but after a while, it can become a little tiresome. That's my only criticism of Aesop Rock. The samples are solid, the beats tight and well balanced in the grand scheme. It's just a well written song, and the track suits it perfectly.
Part two is Nightlight. It is exactly what you'd think it is, a yin to Daylight's yang. It too is executed soundly (ba-dum tss), and perfectly fills the mood. Many of the lines from Daylight are repeated, albeit with a new negative or darker answer. One of my favourite lyricists.
"My God, NightLight flipped th beauty of Daylight on its back and fucked it." (sic)
Next up, Utah Saints. I never really got into the 90's electronica, and I think it's fair to blame the general quality and style that many of the hits from that era share. Although the album (Two) cam out in 2000, it still holds many of the characteristics of 90's dance. This track I find to be somewhat exempt, and I cannot find any reason why. It starts so simple and basic and just builds to something fantastic throughout. The vocal work sounds like some of the early Moby vocals, and the simple delay feedback used throughout to blend sections works favourably. Enough chit chat, enjoy it.
Lastly, something soothing and soft yet powerful and resonant. Gotye's remix album Mixed Blood (2007) was a really quite good album in my opinion. This 3am mix really quite suits the title, fitting perfectly with the vibes that abound at 3am. A soft, soothing and haunting synth and some stunning vocal work. Bravo Joe Hardy.
