Alright, so I haven’t had this much fun writing a Tuesday Top Ten in a while. Suffice it to say, I’ve found a format that you guys find interesting and entertaining, and one that is fun for me to do. I’m going to continue with the best 10 up and coming types, but I think I’ll do them bi-weekly, or maybe even monthly.. I will experiment a bit, and hopefully get some feedback from you all.
A lot of these tracks are old favourites that were on high rotation when I was getting my first really big gigs out, so digging them out for this list was exciting. When I listen to most music I have what you might call flashbacks – I feel as though I am experiencing the same feelings, or perhaps outlook, that I felt at the time in my life when I heard the song for the first time / when it was on high rotation. These tracks remind me of the adrenaline rush I got from turning the bass knobs for the first time, the mashups and mixes I made in my bedroom with DJ Saigo, and the parties that The Monarch and I threw on College St. with our friends where we would steal all the smokers from the DLYF party next door when they went outside for a cig.[audio:Kanye West – Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Cheap Thrills Remix).mp3,Kanye West – Get em High (Ratatat Remix).mp3,Kanye West – Homecoming (DiscoTech Remix).mp3,Kanye West – Love Lockdown (Chew Fu Small Room Fix).mp3,Kanye West – Power (DJ Kue Remix).mp3,Kanye West – See You in My Nightmares (Rynecologist Remix).mp3,Kanye West – Stronger (A-Trak Remix).mp3,Kanye West – Testify (Xaphoon Jones Radiohead Remix).mp3,Kanye West feat T-Pain – Good Life (Siik Remix).mp3,Kanye West – Electric Touch (Steve1der and Mighty Mi Remix).mp3]
