MARCH 13, 2008 ANOTHER PB ALIVE TRACK + CANADA FUN TIMES Pay no attention to all that stuff I said about NAFTA. First up, here's another mp3 for your Zunes, a track from my ridiculous Party Ben Alive mega video set. I put together the original Led Snooppelin track in 2004, and I was never very happy with it, production-wise; the Zeppelin song was hard to work with, and the rhythm, from Block Rockin' Beats, didn't really sit right, in my opinion. But I put it out anyway, and probably because of the source material, some people were into it, and I resolved to someday fix all the problems.
Well that day arrived when I started putting together the video show, and I rebuilt the track from scratch, speeding it up and adding a more solid beat (Lovemakers' "Shake That Ass"). People are happily arguing over the new version's merits over on YouTube, so here's the mp3 all by itself.
Led Snooppelin - "Drop It Like It's a Whole Lotta Love" (2008 Remix) 5MB VBR mp3
Mostly this is just a good way for me to try and combat my (well-earned) reputation as "that guy who mashes up songs with '80s songs. See, no '80s here at all!
Also, I'll be doing my very first DJ set in Canada next week. Oh, Canada. Thanks to the good folks at Something and Monroe, I'll be appearing at the snazzy Hyde nightspot, right in Downtown Canada itself (er, Toronto, that is) next Thursday night 3/20, for a set at their "Hollywood Hangover" event. Thankfully I already have some Canadian tracks to play, although maybe this gig will be an impetus for me to finally finish that Arcade Fire/Yes mix. Either way, hope to see a bunch of you Canadians, with your flappy heads and beady little eyes, out at the gig.
