Pitchy Control

With my sometimes reservations about what goes on over at the Mad Decent site, every now and then they post something that really blows me away. This mix by Nick the V is Dubstep at 45 RPM mixed with DJ Nate Juke Footwork songs, and in my opinion it really works. It's amazing what a little ajustando of the pitch control can do for the creative process.

yeah I liked that mix, even though I wasn't all that into most of the Dubstep he was playing. I liked how he dropped the Nate bomb in the middle, that made it worth listening for me. One of my favorite nate tracks for sure.

That video is awesome too.

And by video I meant the cumbia one, though of course Moortje and Screw are my two favorite musicians ever.

Yeah Dave, I thought of you posting this. I can't believe you posted screwed Rush! My roommate in College used to listen to that in college, and would tell me it was the best music ever. Then I would crush him with my turntable.

That version definitely made it tollerable

When I got to college I was cleaning out an old student pirate radio station and found a box of two hundred juke box 45s from the mid 80s. Being upstate New York- there was alot of classic rock.... some of that shit sounds allright at 33... but most of its still shit.

yeah that Rush track cracks me up, it's amazing how much more tolerable it is slowed down. The guitars and everything sound so much less wanky. It's still Rush but the powers of Screw are a force to be reckoned with. I have heard some other screwed rock tracks, that "Slowride" song and "Black Betty", they are kind of cool. Some dj from Houston made a mixtape of southern rock screwed but I can't find it. The SUC "screwed up oldies" mixtape is pretty dope, Cheech and Chong - Basketball Jones sounds like funkadelic.

I have had a lot of roomates that listened to some awful stuff. Not the case now which is fortunate.

I'm glad to hear others out there have reservations about Mad Decent. What I am calling reservations might may look a lot like what other folks would call utter distrust. But, I am still open to informed opinions about what they are up to as I am only vaguely familiar, going to the blog to look for the occasional remix etc. Feel free to point me to any posts about the dicey relationship between privilege, colonization, cultural appropriation, and the new global bass scene.
