Noctambule – Cinco de Mayo

That’s right fool, it’s Cinco de Mayo and you know very well what that P.Y.T. up there means in our language – we’re having a party. The weather is amazing, the RSVPs are through the roof, the margaritas will be flowing soon and the night is set to be epic. If you have’t RSVP’d yet go ahead and do it so you can get the password, it’s going to be a full house and I don’t want anyone to have trouble getting in. On another note, tomorrow I’ll be announcing my new company for which we’ll be having a launch party next week but more on that later.

The Eldridge – 247 Essex (btw Stanton & Houston)

Pretty much the only music I like to listen to on days like this is MJ but we’ve all heard that a million times so I thought why not just post some MJ inspired music. While a million songs will fit that category here are two of my favorites. The first is the Idjut Boys’ remix of Lindstrom & Christabelle’s Baby Can’t Stop. Want MJ without Quiny Jones or MJ, listen to this track. It’s got the horns, the guitars, the pads, the works. Of course you won’t get that big Bruce Sweden sound but the energy and life is there so the vibe will still be right. Second is Drixxxe’s Remix of Data’s One In A Million. The first you’ll notice is the Wanna Be Starting Something in the bass and rhythm section. Some people might see the inspiration as something negative but I love it. Anyways, I have a million things to do to make sure this party rocks correctly so I’ll have to cut it short but stop by The Eldridge and say hi, I’ll be at the table next to the DJ’s, enjoy.

Lindstrøm & Christabelle – Baby Can’t Stop (Idjut Boys Remix)

I was on the phone with G.O.V. last night talking about how much we crave a new paradigm of thinking because the current standard seem to be so dated, boxed in and uninspiring. Long story short the conversation led to picking favorites, it seems like the second you settle for one, you’ve limited life’s palette and possibly neglected a whole world of endless possibilities and experiences. With that said I’m going to somewhat contradict myself because when it comes to music there’s one album that offers so much it deserves a little favoritism, by more then a hundred million people that is…

After spending a week with a good friend in Nantucket this summer, literally blasting Thriller the entire time, I came to the conclusion that this album was the one, the two, the three, the four… If Thriller was a girl, I’d get down on my knees and propose this minute. Nothing comes close to the feelgood vibe of that album, the sound is universal, the lyrics are real and it was made with so much love, sincerity and care that it’s no secret why an entire world would embrace it the way it has. For those of you just getting into MJ, this all happened long before he passed away. If a girl was Thriller, I probably wouldn’t have so much trouble with the current paradigm.

Well, if you haven’t guess by now this song reminds me of a Quincy Jones production. Idjut apparently shares similar affection for the album because everything from the horn arrangement to the guitar licks on this remix is screaming Quincy inspiration and I love it. Without further ado, here’s a 7 minute retro inspired remix of Baby Can’t Stop, enjoy.
