On The 20th Day...

...Of Christmas Van Foxbat gave to you; a boatload of good tunes. Hello all, just dropping by for my usual art + track dump, see y'all on the other side!

Gustave Caillebotte - Rue Halevy, Seen from the Sixth Floor (1878)

Been re-watching the Bebop again, and lemme tell you it's just as good as ever. The soundtrack deserves an honourable mention naturally, but what's even better is some cuts from the remix LP featuring names like Ian Pooley and Luke Vibert! Here's one of my faves from tea-loving beat crafter Mr. Scruff.

On a similar funky note I have fallen back in love with the bass work of Squarepusher. The man is a virtuoso on those strings, there are tracks that maybe show this a bit better but for my money, this track from my favourite of his albums Hello Everything is all I need.

And no jazz/lounge heavy post would be complete with the tune that introduced me to trip hop before knew it was called that back in '99. And even then it'd take me a good 10 years to find that out and track the tune back down. Ladies and gentlemen: the E-Z Rollers, take it away.
