Tune One- Artist: Ty
Tune: Takin' it back
From the excellent album, Upwards, Ty is takin' us back to "breakdancing on my living room floor, I can still do the backspin (Watchme!), takin' it back to when we used to bust moves in the club " laid over a sweet and deep bass and supported with by a simple chorus that grooves us along. As those who know me will attest-I am a nostalgic old git and this tune tugs on those nostalgic strings.
Tune Two- Artist: Danger Doom (w/ Talib Kweli)
Tune: Old School
Danger Mouse and MF Doom join forces to release their album that from early indications was gonna to be a stormer (check out this excellent review of the album). This tune is just infectious as it grabs you in all the right places. It would go along perfect with the Ohmega Watts track from a few weeks ago (Download 05_that_sound_that_sound_quantic_so.mp3). With some clever ass rapping from Doom and Kweli we are treated to some tales of life as a kid by rolling that rap over soul loops like that. Enjoy.
