Post-Render Blues

Just finished up a big video project I've been working on for fellow writer Evan, and as much as I won't miss the ever increasing render times, conversions and compression, what I will miss is having it to do. I've been at it for nearly 4 months as of now, and I don't know what to do with myself, so I thought I'd share some tunes that are helping me cope.

Edward Hopper - Compartment Car

Working the last remnants of my latest cyberpunk binge with everybody's favourite Jazz cats from the 2040's The Seatbelts. If I were given it in a blind test I'd swear it was almost a Mr. Scruff track given that bassline and the overall feel. This one's a must listen for all you folks out there like me that like a bit of that Scruff style in our lives.

Not gonna lie, I'm kinda feeling all things Hip & Trip Hop right now, and its been a long time since I've had the pleasure of Pretty Lights' debut. It's up and down gorgeously done, shame he moved away from the style so quickly, guy's got a knack for instrumentals and I'd love to hear more.

And finally, the unsung heroes of trip hop in my collection, The Deadbeats (or just Deabeats, as they were on this first LP). I dig their style a whole bunch, the album this is from, Lounging certainly lives up to its name, it's a lovely little time capsule back to the turn of the millennium, so whack this on and have a lazy day like it's 2000 again.
