Some phenomenal hindsight of grunge, alternative rock, and how it became the very thing it stood against. I remember this year vividly. I was 15, at the height of my angst, and this caused me not only to re-live the period but it also provided a unique subtext I was completely oblivious to. On the radio, Goo Goo Dolls’ “Name” bled into Tonic’s “If You Could Only See” into Dishwalla’s “Counting Blue Cars” into The Verve Pipe’s “The Freshmen” into Matchbox Twenty’s “Push” in a watery bouillabaisse of quiet-loud-quiet song structures and sad-bro earnestness. This has to be the most…
I searched all my archives, but it doesn’t appear that I had previously posted this anywhere here. It’s not exactly hot off the presses but if you haven’t heard it, check it out: It is phenomenal, and after mentioning it to someone on fb this evening I was reinvigorated by it. The iPad can’t deal with zip files so I couldn’t download it locally but it’s on my google music (play) so streaming it down. Gotta love the audio background ability they finally added to ios. Totally grooving out to it and going to listen more tomorrow. I believe it…
Fabulous track off David Guetta’s new album. Check out David Guetta – Titanium (ft Sia) on Spotify or if you’re mobile you can check it out on YouTube. I’m surprised there’s no official video for it yet, or if there is it’s completely eclipsed by all the covers, acoustic or otherwise.
One of the thing that I may have missed, and adding specially for #asot500 is my mixes: http://synthetic-x.com/digg/ my various mixes – nothing professional but I’m working on it.
Got another one I did over my birthday:Bruised, Salty, and Watery. Remix of a remix with an ode to the original – Chicane – Salt Water.
Put together a mix of Mindbender and Bassboosa, both use Wicked Game in a completely different way, so naturally I wanted to merge them together. Wicked Game (Mindbender VS Bassboosa)
Here’s a mix I put together of two different takes on the Chris Isaak classic “Wicked Game” by Bassboosa & Mindbender. It’s still got some work to do, but I know where I need to tweak – make sure not to leave out the v1 if tagging.
Morgan Page – The Longest Road (WijiX Mix Respackled) I am not sure if this is Trance or Dance… so I’m calling it electronic.What do you think?
