Nicolas Jaar John Lennon Tribute Mix

Standard

‘Yesterday marked the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon’s murder at the hands of Mark Chapman. Jaar has noted the occasion with a new mix in Lennon’s honour, titled ‘Our World’.

Jaar’s mix certainly isn’t a conventional tribute session – instead, he uses processed fragments of classic Lennon material (‘Imagine’ included), news reports, and assorted Jaar productions to build a trippy, oneiric hour.’

Doggystyle: The Samples [20th Anniversary]

Standard

“November 23rd marks the 20th Anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s highly-acclaimed Doggystyle, in which his lyrical realism and distinctive vocal flow forever changed hip-hop and helped define the genre into what it is today.

In honor of this date, Snoop has created an enticing mixtape of the samples used on Doggystyle. Never done before, Snoop offers exclusive commentary about each song and the behind-the-scenes stories that went on during the making of the historic record. The mixtape offers fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience to hear first-hand, the creative process behind the record.”

If you like your sounds a bit glitchy with a smattering of dub check this out. A very able soundtrack to my afternoon.
