Lost in the groove
Concluding my little dance-music extravaganza, here are two of my favorite tunes from earlier in 2005 before I was doing the site. First up, Solid Groove's "This Is Sick" -- like Soho's "Hot Music," it's one of those uncategorizable tracks that appeals to everyone, whether you're on the hip-hop / global pop side of things like Ayres and Diplo, or coming from the house end like Ewan Pearson. Backward vocals, loungey swirls and yes, SICK pulsing bass: It seems like producer Dave Taylor just threw everything at the wall, but it comes together perfectly.
Don't know much about Poni Hoax and "Budapest" except that it's on Tigersushi and, pardon my french, it sounds like fucking. I mean we're talking Budapest as in sex capital of Europe, lost weekend with Rocco Siffredi's camera crew Budapest. (Nah, I ain't linking Rocco, you can find out yerself.)
p.s. Obviously this post has nothing to do with Lost. I'm just glad it's back. Have a great weekend.
