>Late Night Playlist + New Wiz Khalifa Track, No Not Rollin UpPosted: February 1, 2011
>Late night playlist time. I’m spending my night on Hypem tonight so I figured I’d make a solid playlist instead of 12,000 posts. So here it is, the late night, here comes February mixtape.
Limit to Your Love – James Blake
A track off UK ambient electronic composer James Blake’s eponymous debut. This is a striking track that alternates between sections of piano ballad type music and chorus dominated by a heavy wobbling sub bass.
Days ft. Romy Madley Croft – Creep (Deadboy Remix)
Next is the Deadboy remix of the eerie Days by Creep, featuring the always pleasant and ethereal Romy Madley Croft of The xx.
Devils – Say Hi
Say Hi, formed by Eric Elbogen, is usually known for Elbogen’s soft mumbled vocals and quiet guitar. He is best known for mumbling through emotional and quirky lovelorn songs but the single of his latest album Um, Uh Oh is a significant departure from his sound. It seems as if he’s taken a que from Modest Mouse almost. I like the way it sounds though and I’m a fan of the change.
Young Folks (Peter Bjorn and John Remix) – Kanye West
Kanye also went with a departure from his more recent sounds for this song. A Plain Pat produced reworked version of Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John. Good Stuff.
Empire Ants (Miami Horror Remix) – Gorillaz
The Miami Horror remix of Empire Ants by the Gorillaz has a great house sound to it and a banging bass. A great dance track that carries with a solid upbeat vibe.
D.A.N.C.E (Eli & Diplo Remix) – Justice
The Eli & Diplo Remix of the classic track D.A.N.C.E. by Justice features a great funky bassline that really adds to the disco feel and drives it in a more old school direction. Diplo has a magic touch and any track with his name attached deserves attention.
On My Level – Wiz Khalifa
I wasn’t a fan of Wiz’s single Rollin Up, but he definitely makes up for that unpleasant anomaly with this song. A great minimalist beat that’s a departure from Wiz’s more recent mixtapes. This brings me back to the Show and Prove stuff he used to do.
