R.I.P. Eddie Bo

This might seem a little out of place on my blog, but Eddie Bo is someone that anyone who has a love of funky and soulful music should be aware of. He's not only influenced many contemporary greats over a broad span of style and genre, but his tracks have been directly used in many dance and DJ circles, such as DJ Shadow, The Chemical Brothers and Plump DJs, to name a few.

I also got to work with this man on a regular basis while I was a sound tech/stage hand at a bar on Bourbon Street many years ago. Eddie was one of the most warm and disarming personalities you could ever meet, and man could he wail on a piano!

Eddie will be missed.

Avenue >> Can You Feel It (Soda Boys Remix)

While the original (by Avenue) isn't exactly my preferred flavor of pop, all the more reason to appreciate the rework done here by Soda Boys. I can imagine this unleashed on more than a few unsuspecting parties, and just feel the temperature rise as the song chugs along, fueled by vocoded dancefloor fury.

Kid Cudi >> The Prayer

I was sitting here, thinking about Charlie, and found this Kid Cudi track... All I can say is this hit me like a ton of bricks. I don't do sappy crap like song dedications (hello? Delilah?! I had to listen to that drivel at an old job. Misery in sonic form.) but if there was ever a song I could dedicate, it's this one for Charlie.

You are not forgotten.

Lily Allen >> The Fear (AP vs DJ Cat NYC Remix)

Definitely one of the more schizophrenic remixes I've heard in a bit... This Automatic Panic vs DJ Cat NYC remix of Lily Allen is all over the place, from I'm-feelin-those-Mitsubishis-NOW rave madness, to acid soaked disco hi-hats, to a brief love affair with breakbeat, and progressivey pads to wash it all down.
