C2C – Down The Road

Holy. If it was possible for a track to be as hot as the weather outside, I think it would be this track. Like if fire could be translated to the literal notes and turntable rhythms of a song, it would exist in one’s ears as this song. Oh my sweet heavens.

There are few times that one accidentally comes across this kind of music. You know a track that makes you feel like the only appropriate reaction is to stand up wherever you are, and freak out. If you don’t flail those arms, shake your booty, make weird pointy gestures with your fingers in the air at no one in particular, and maybe even start head thrashing with an epic air guitar, then you’re not doing the musical gods justice. The truth is that I came across this track on accident when my roommate started playing C2C‘s music yesterday in our kitchen. She knew right away that I would fall in love, and she was right. She showed me a few other tracks, and I knew C2C needed to make its way into my iTunes immediately.

They’re a french turntable group that consists of four members, and their music hasn’t really made it in the states yet. I mean, maybe it has, but this was the first I’d heard of them. To my knowledge, they’re relatively new on the music scene, but they’ve done collaborations with French hip-hop group Hocus Pocus. I’m always a lover of turntable music. A fascinating different spin on something entirely original.

This track is so incredibly sexy not just because of how smoothly each transition is between sounds, but because of how carefully each sound is chosen. Not a single note seems out of place, and just when you think it couldn’t get any more surprising, there’s a guitar. Or a new set of vocals. Or a break that feels so right that you just can’t help but smile.

I can’t wait for you guys to click play on this one. I’m not even going to tell you where to play it, or what to wait for. The truth is that if you’re at work, it will probably sound even better because you may not be allowed to just break out in dance. Constraint sometimes makes things even better…But you might just have to excuse yourself for a minute or two. It’s okay, life is full of excuses.

Goodbye baby, yes I’m goin’…
