Every time I think about this past year, my brain starts to shut down. I can barely discern one month from another, and coupled with this being the end of the decade, I’m overwhelmed with ideas for a wrap-up.
This instead will be a “Bonnaventure Approved” post. I am not going to say anything about these tracks, except they found their way in to my headphones/car/DJ set and I made the effort to put them in to this post. I hope you understand. Happy New Year friends!
Example – Won’t Go Quietly (The Juan MacLean Remix)
Get A Room – The Dreamer
John Roman – Are You Ready For This?
Piranha Piranha – Stutter
Sidney Samson – Riverside (Breakage Remix)
Ok, I feel bad for not saying anything… The EXAMPLE track is extremely catchy and remixed by THE JUAN MACLEAN. I live in an area that’s months behind musically, so I have no idea who Example is, but this song is catchy. I sing it in my car to pass the time. The Dreamer is a track that was apparently edited from a movie? The DJs GET A ROOM! made a fun track with a italo feel, but wrote an annoying promo email so I kind of forgot about this tune until it shuffled in to my life, I’m hooked.
JOHN ROMAN is a Canadian that is blowing my mind with this tune. The horns scream “I want to be dub” on first listen, but once the track kicks in with the main lead, you WILL lose your mind. I am DJing New Years Eve, and this will be dropped at a peak moment. PIRANHA PIRANHA makes dubstep that isn’t trying to make it big, but is trying to make something original. This isn’t London dubstep, this is Calgary dubstep, the post apocalyptic themes are still apparent, but there is no biting of style here.
Speaking of dubstep, it’s fun right now. Will it be as hyped this time next year? Who knows? All I know is that I compulsively whistle this amazing SIDNEY SAMSON tune, and whenever something awesome happens, I tend to yell “Riverside Mother Fucker!”. I’m not the only one, I am sure of it. So that about wraps up this post, which is much longer than I expected. If you are wondering what my favourite album of the 00s is, I just have one word: Yoshimi.
