It’s my birthday today! In honor of this fact I thought I’d post a couple of faves. The first time I ever went to Chicago my family (curiously) listened to D-Mob’s A Little of This, a Little of That the entire time, and as a consequence I know most of it by heart. Most folks get into “We Call It Acieeed” (ok so maybe it does have an amazing video) but I’m partial to their take on D-Train’s “Put Our Hands Together,” which is a great romp of a hip house track.
Last year Boat Drinks!, an excellent reworker of tunes in the balearic style, did a lovely take on UB40’s “Don’t Break My Heart,” a vastly superior tune to most of their radio hits, and a surefire way to make me wish it’s simultaneously 90° and 1988. Grab it from his Soundcloud. I’ll be certain to crank it on my birthday beach trip tomorrow. Enjoy your weekend guys!
