Fans of THEESatisfaction originals aren’t often treated to remixes for whatever reason. Perhaps producers who don’t know them take the duo too seriously or appreciate their raw material so much that they don’t dare muck it up. But the ever-clever Old Money duo recently stripped down and refurbished “Enchantruss,” one of the best tunes on THEESat’s stellar debut album of 2012 and made it into an entirely new composition. What you’ll hear on this tune has the barest seedlings of Stas and Cat and guts Shabazz Palaces contributions to the song entirely. Calling it a remix is iffy. It’s better to call it cerebral ballsy.
Soundcloud’s a beautiful thing. I say this in all seriousness. It’s what Myspace wishes it could be, but can’t, because, well, it’s Myspace. Here’s a little taste of the virtual firehose that we here at LxNxM sip from.
And if you’re on the Cloud of Sound, follow us right about hurrrrr.
Krieg put me on to Lunice a little over a month ago when he posted this remix of a Deerhunter track that he did with Diplo. I liked that song, and it was as catchy as Krieg purported it to be. But after listening to that song a couple of times, I kinda forgot about him. (Nothing on Krieg or Lunice, it’s just that I got busy and, you know, I have a million other songs in my head at any given moment that I am either trying to soak in or get out. It happens sometimes.) Then, as I was perusing the always informative, always classy and always fresh pages of Put Me On It this week, I saw that that one of my favorite bloggers, Amelia, was lamenting that Lunice’s Stacker Upper EP hadn’t been released yet. So, I decided to pop over to Monsieur Lunice Fermin Pierre II’s Soundcloud page to see for myself what the homie had in store. Sure enough, I found nothing but a bunch of heaters. This kid is ridiculous.
Here’s his latest, a remix of Elephant Man’s “Shake It.” It’s a headbanger, that’s for certain:
Don’t get it twisted though, Lunice is no one trick pony/only-remix-other-people’s-shit kinda dude. He’s also got quality material that is all his. For example, check out the laid back yet sharp “Clear Eyes” below:
You should also check out this mini-preview mix for the upcoming EP. For under four minutes, it’s actually a really good teaser mix:
I want more. I know you want more. Do yourself a favor and go to Lunice’s Soundcloud and stream everything he has. It’s pretty much all that good. If you still can’t get enough Lunice, go over to his youtube channel and check out his sweet dance moves. No, seriously, he has some pretty sweet moves.
Not for nothing, there’s probably nobody else on earth tougher than folks from Afghanistan. They’re putting up with a total U.S. onslaught, a Taliban onslaught and God knows what else, without giving up at all. What exactly does that mean, who knows, but I sense they’re some tough motherfuckers. I found this image online a couple of days ago thanks to something the homie Peter Dean Rickards tweeted out and have been fascinated by it ever since.
Today, while still compelled by this photograph, I went on Soundcloud and wondered if there are any Afghani’s with Soundcloud accounts. It’s the concept that even amidst death, war and carnage, there’s still time to make music and dance. I didn’t find any DJs in Kabul with Soundclouds, but I did discover a solid mix from a cat named DJ Wise that’s worth a listen. Ever wondered what Afghan music is like? Probably not, but dig deep and find out below. That is if you’re a real music head.
