Yup, I've Been Drinkin' Again

Stopped off for a cheeky pint or two on me way home with some mates, as university students are legally required to do. And I gots to thinking about audio that matched out merry state as I walked to the station, and here's what I found!

Pablo Picasso - The Absinthe Drinker (1901)

Kicking off with a bit from Modeselektor. Hadn't even considered this at first, but then the stumbling melody that opens the track just fit perfectly for the theme. Lucky I've recently put Happy Birthday! back into rotation, I've been missing my electro style fix as of late.

Keepin' it in Germany with a visit from Siriusmo. I didn't see much press about his second album Enthusiast compared to his debut Mosaik, though I suppose we weren't waiting about ten years for it. Similar to the Modeselektor tune it sounds pretty unstable, but the title also translates to something along the lines of "Beer Tears" too.

Something a little out of leftfield here, I've mentioned a Squarepusher's one off Jazz record a couple of times but never actually posted anything from it save My Sound. It does get pretty weird in parts but is actually pretty sweet, here's a little 40 second interstitial that appears about halfway through that reminds me of some stuff I've made meself while on the drink.

And finally, a little extra that I decided to put on as it came on in the station. A dubbed out rework of Massive Attack's Better Things courtesy of Mad Professor. I was surprised I hadn't posted this one, it's one of my favourites from the remix album No Protection, headphones definitely recommended for this one.
