Our Creative Director Dan picks a track at random, our guest adds a track that they think of in response and explains the link, then they go back and forth for 10 tracks.
Founder + Creative Director + Artist @ Everything You See Here
GENESIS OWUSU "TIED UP!"
DD: Prince-esque funk pop vibes from Genesis Owusu.
BEYONCÉ "SUMMER RENAISSANCE"
SM: Love it! Added Summer Renaissance linked to Tied Up by producer Sol Was.
ALTHEA & DONNA "UPTOWN TOP RANKING"
DD: Excellent choice. That track interpolates "I Feel Love" by Donna Summer so from one Donna to another I've added Uptown Top Ranking by Althea & Donna.
RIHANNA "RUDE BOY"
SM: Ok…Uptown Ranking is a re-recording of I’m Still in Love by Alton Ellis the godfather of rocksteady who later made some anti-rude boy songs sooo…
LIONROCK "RUDE BOY ROCK"
DD: Cool. I've added some classic big beat in the form of the similarly titled Rude Boy Rock by Lionrock.
PARLIAMENT "FLASH LIGHT"
SM: Rude Boy Rock is on the FIFA 99 soundtrack along with...Fat Boy Slim Rockafeller Skank but that's too easy so how about this by the original funk soul brother...
BOBBY CALDWELL "OPEN YOUR EYES"
DD: Nicely done. Ok, lets go from Parliament, to House Of Commons, to US rapper Common, whose Grammy-nominated song "The Light" samples the late great Bobby Caldwell.
SILK CITY "ELECTRICITY (WITH DUA LIPA)"
SM: So…I think the woman Bobby’s singing to doesn’t need him to show her the light, she just needs some Electricity ⚡️
M.I.A. "BUCKY DONE GUN"
DD: I've added the early M.I.A. banger Bucky Done Gun, co-produced & co-written by long-time collaborator and one half of Silk City, Diplo.
TRAVIS SCOTT "TIL FURTHER NOTICE (FT JAMES BLAKE & 21 SAVAGE)"
SM: M.I.A. has said she was questioning the evolution and aftermath of gangster rap with Bucky Done Gun - ‘were they going to go into therapy?’ Perhaps what’s next is a commodified utopia? Til further notice…
Massive thanks to Shirin for a bunch of great links & tracks!
