I saw Vikesh Kapoor perform the other night, armed with a guitar and a harmonica (there were some Bob Dylan vibes for sure). I wanted to share one of his songs with you called “Bottom of the Ladder”.
The video below was made by Randy Sterling Hunter and Zia Anger, the same ones who did that video for Angel Olsen. Once again they’ve exposed and re-wound a single roll of 16mm film to create the visuals.
Producer Amerigo Gazaway has created a masterpiece here, turning the dream of a collab between Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Marvin Gaye into reality. To call this is a mash-up album simply does not do it any justice, this is a thing of beauty.
*Amerigo Gazaway has been served with a takedown notice from RIAA, the link I posted still works for now but probably won’t for much longer – better hurry!
This is rare, I made a new mix and it’s not summer! Just a heads up, this one’s pretty much the exact opposite of the summer ones. It might be a bit noisy for your office (unless you work in a really cool office) but you can always download it for later! If you’re into R&Bass music, this one’s for you.
Heads up Vancouver, James Blake is rolling through town on the 19th, playing Vogue Theatre with Nosaj Thing! I’ve also heard that James Blake’s dj collective 1-800-Dinosaur will be back here again in April. Anyways, this show is going to be epic and I have a pair of tickets to give away!
If you wanna go to the show tell me your favourite song by James Blake or Nosaj Thing in the comments below. If you have a story or specific memory tied to the song I wanna hear it!
