Bobby McFerrin

Basically this post is about how good and under appreciated Bobby McFerrin is. I reckon if you asked people who Bobby McFerrin was they wouldn't a breeze. But they don't realise they already know his music. He is most famous for his uplifting song "Don't Worry Be Happy". And that song is very good obviously, but it gets much better.
My brother showed me a video of Bobby about 2 years ago and since then I've been discovering better better material from him, mostly live. What makes him so good is natural music talent. He really has music in him. He is amazing at improvisation.
So here's a few sweet, sweet videos for you, all a capella.

This is the first video I saw of him.

This is him exploring the expectation part of our brain.

Florence and The Xx

First up here's a deadly a Capella performance from a group called "Ca Capella".

Next up is probably one of my favourite remixes this year by two promising artists. The XX, who are great little band, remixing Florence and the Machine's great cover of 'You've got the Love'. With the harps, and chilled out beats. This remix can be taken as slightly dubby and slighty chilled out.

Noob and Brodinski got together and made 'Peanuts Club'. Then Beatacue remixed it and made this club banger. I haven't heard it much in Dublin yet. But I expect to be played in most sets soon enough. I'll definitely be dropping it at this Sunday's Mr.Jones Alliance

Mr. Meeble

I was just "stumble videoing" and came across the very cool video called 'I Fell Through' by Mr.Meeble. It starts off with some dude covered in all sorts of paints and coloured liquids and because it's reversed you have to watch it to the end. And the song is also very cool enjoy.
Mr.Meeble is electronica/indie/trip hop hailing from France. I checked out their Myspace and there is some really nice tunes there.

Also, here's just a bouncy, happy, housey mix tape I made for "True Stories" which is a night which runs every Tuesday night in the wonderful Bernard Shaw.

Tracklist: 30 Minutes

i. Walter Murphy - A Fifth of Beethoven (Soulwax Remix)
ii. Fake Blood - I Think I Like It
iii. Switch - A Bit Patchy
iv. Jesse Rose - A Night At The Dogs
v. Gramophonedzie - Why Don't You
vi. Thomas Schumacher - Sunset
vii. Foxy Brown - Oh Yeah (Spinstyles Remix)
viii. Lazy Jay - Float My Boat

DJ Z-Trip and Mystery Nicole

DJ Z-Trip Live in LA 2003

First up is a mix tape from an American Dj called DJ Z-Trip. If anybody out there likes Dj Yoda or Girl Talk, you will also like this. I was shown this recently at a party and it kept impressing again and again as it went on. So much so, that I think that it's one of the best mixtapes I've ever heard. He basically adds delicious hip hop beats to classic rock and pop songs. It works.



Mercedes Benz

Bombs Over Baghdad


Whole Lotta Love

Walk This Way

Make You Feel That Way

Baba O'Riley



What I Am

Just To Get By

I'm Your Puppet



I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More, Baby

What's Going On?


DJ Z-Trip Live in LA 2003 mediafire

Next up is a song called 'Nicole' that I found on a compilation album about 4 years ago. It was the only decent song on that compilation and also the only song that didn't have the name of the artist. So I tried and tried to find the artist and never could. So to this day it's a wonderful mystery. If anyone would like to try find the artist, please do. Coz I would love to hear more stuff like this. Anyway here it is for you.
