just in time

Wednesday, 25 February 2009

there are few things in this world that make me more excited than news of a new lifelike release. so i guess you could say that when i recently received lifelike's new sunset/sequencer release i was more than fairly excited.

although the sunset half of the release is an amazingly buoyant song (which is well worth a look), i have chosen to feature the more d-floor friendly sequencer.. kinda hoping to channel some of my future music/lifelike excitedness to him and all y'all through song.

Lifelike - Sequencer

although it starts off a little bit abrasive, this track definitely builds into a sophisticated lifelike-style banger (if you can call it that), with layer upon layer of gorgeoushhh synth. call me simple minded, but songs (like sequencer) that transparently add elements and layers with each verse or chorus always appeal to me- i love being able to follow the progression of a song.

so excited to see lifelike on sat yo- i hope he doesnt play too much progressive though. i remember hearing a live dj mix that he did somewhere and hearing way too much prog. yyaaawwwnnn
and as a final piece of future music commentary- the set times are shit. having to ditch lifelike half way through so i can go and watch nerd wasnt how i envisioned it.

as a final piece of steve commentary: after many many years, i have finally tracked down an unmixed version of this song by everything but the girl. i believe that it may be one of my favourite house songs eevverrr.

Everything But The Girl - Tracey In My Room (Lazy Dog Bootleg Vocal Mix)

this is perhaps one of the only songs that i know that can effortlessly and consistently squeeze into (almost) any set, scenario or situation and bring smiles to peoples faces and butts to the dancefloor.
