The Dubstep Yamo B There Connection [Apr. 13th, 2009|03:42 pm]

Pangaea is a producer in the Dubstep vein that I like quite a lot for being one of the guys who resists the siren call of the obnoxious wobble bass.

He’s not about a bit of appropriation, specifically the chopped, screwed, and pitch-shifted R&B Vocal thing that Burial employed to great affect on his long player Untrue. He also share’s Burial’s love of ElB’s chicken scratch 2 step beats. He’s not a complete Burial clone though, but he definitely scratches some of the same itches for me.

But whether or not he’s original or derivative is irrelevant to this post; what I’m wondering is if my suspicions are true and his track “Router” contains a vocal sample of comedy punching bag Michael McDonald, of the Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, and Ya Mo B There fame. It sure sounds like it, though I can’t identify the particular track. Furthermore, tracking it down would require listening to the Michael Macdonald oeuvre, something that could put me right over the fucking edge.

The most unfortunate Michael Mcdonald picture I could find.

UPDATE

I found the track Pangaea sampled: Baby I’m For Real. God what a slab of shite.

Mystery Solved: Why I Keep Getting Twitter Adds. [Apr. 13th, 2009|04:33 pm]

I have been mystified by how many Twitter adds I’ve been getting, since I don’t really bother too much with it. But I think I’ve partially solved it. Unfortunately it’s NOT because I’m so awesomely original and brilliant that everyone wants to read my blog posts.

Apparently people are setting up automated twitter feeds, that will add you if they see keywords they deem relevant in your tweets. Presumably, someone would e.g. want to see every time someone posts about ‘Dubstep’ to Twitter, so they’d start following that automated feed. Or something like that.

Which has led me to this conclusion: Twitter is for people too ADD to handle RSS aggregators as Internet Timewasters.

Make Your Own Kraut [Apr. 13th, 2009|11:54 pm]

This is one of the most unambiguous bifurcation of humankind. Either you love fermented vegetables — Sauerkraut, Kim Chee, etc — or you can’t stand them.
