Back from a very relaxing week off and it’s time to dwell back into the depths of audio culture. It’s amazing the transformation that has happened with media consumption in the last ten years.
No longer is currency the constraint limiting our consumption with asymmetrically infinite quantities of audio available online. With our time – or the length of our lives – as the only relevant constraint I feel the shift towards quality is inevitable. With over whelming quantities of audio – positive in on its own – we learn to appreciate the marvels of meta text that the progressive evolution of online media has brought about. Now we are at a point where even meta is approaching infinity. How many layers of meta do we need to listen to good music..?
To the point:
Dr. Octagon is dead. Never-the-less let us reminisce on a track celebrating our favourite extraterrestrial gynecologist. I do feel that classical horror movie vibe underneath Kool Keith’s lyrics – is it just me or is this movie theme becoming a definitive soul of the blog? Incidentally Dan the Automator is the common denominator. He’s had his hands deep in this track as well as in “strangers on a train.” I love the original track with its bizarre lyrics only matched by the absurd complexity of our audio culture. However, this remix by Mr. fli for me at least has a very attractive electro twist with definite value added to the original.
