The movie Drive made Desire’s Under Your Spell an instant classic and on February of last year Kid Cudi revealed his project WZRD (an alias he uses for the rock project where he partners up with Dot Da Genius).
Drive’s soundtrack has the ability to transport (or teleport me, for that matter) to another time (even though it’s a relatively new movie only a couple years old. But everything about the movie has influences from a decade that’s very special to me. Among its feats was making Desire’s Under Your Spell an instant classic. In Teleport 2 Me, Jamie, Cudi samples Desire’s original and sings about how much he wants this girl to be with him. The elusive Jamie is Jamie Baratta (Cudi’s best friend or girlfriend, depending who you ask). Cudi still can’t sing yet he’s managed for us all to accept and even like the way he ‘sings’ in his songs.
WZRD (which was first called Wizard then 2 Be Continuum and later WZRD where the four letters are pronounced one letter at a time *rolls eyes*) is the rock project that finds behind it the aforementioned Cudi and Dot Da Genius. Teleport 2 Me, Jamie was their debut single in February 2012 and since then I haven’t heard a bit. Hopefully this side-project gives birth to more stuff like this.
