Waking Up: Jamie Lidell “What A Shame”

December 5, 2012 at 11:21 am

You can really see Jamie Lidell picking up the new music trends and molding them with his super soul vocals.  Compared to his last two albums, this track is leaps and bounds in a more electronic direction, and I actually didn't like it the first time I heard it.  Jamie's vocals, though, are undeniable.  The tone he carries is amazing, and worth checking out if you've never heard his previous material.  His new self-titled album is set to release in February 2013 on Warp Records.

So yeah, as much as I can talk bad about the pop/dubstep sound, I still woke up with it in my head, and I still enjoy it.  Download for free on Jamie Lidell's website.

LDFD “Outtacontrol”

LDFD is a beatmaker based out of Dallas, TX. Don’t know much more about him, but I’m DIGGIN this release! There’s a relevant electronic sound here, but utilizing a sped up vocal sample from Janet Jackson’s “Go Deep” (whaaaa?!) makes it sound so much more soulful than just any wobbly dubstep track.
