well - you know me for a terrible music snob - but credit where credit is due

the man caribou/manitoba - i don't have any of his records bar a remix he did of the junior boys at nick K's behest (may god rest his soul)

but i've seen he's a pretty good DJ

and if you have time on your hands you should check this out - basically it is an act of generosity IMHO

The obvious thing now would be for Woebot to do his own 1000 song playlist :D

luka

the Hip-Hop stuff is all quite obvious as you say

Superthug
Numbers On the Boards
Come Clean
What We Do

OTOH its also all good and for those that don't know much hip-hop it might be an ear opener.

Corpsey

also several of these would be on my own 1000 song playlist.

luka

Any 1000 songs with no formatting will be like an ipood on shuffle what's your problem? Always finding fault even with a generous gesture for the fans
He spent hours on that.

LUKA2 is right LUKA1 you are being a bit of a prick.

:rolleyes:

honestly! at the risk of making it appear like i've been successfully trolled.

there's masses of good stuff in there. and many things i haven't heard before. you want a percentage figure of what i've heard before? can i convert that percentage into a hipster quotient that will get me a discount at Tesco?

if you can disable your pride for...ooh five seconds....think of it another way. anyone's selection of a 1000 tracks they thought were great would contain stuff that you hadn't heard before. it's just inevitable.

Woebot
20-01-2015, 12:37 PM
here's an example of something i hadn't heard that's nice.

never heard anything by phillipe besombes before in fact. to be honest it's OK.

Philip Besombes did the Libra soundtrack I think - that's pretty well-known. Otherwise did some pretty decent libraries.

Every music website I look at has picked up this mix/playlist thing... and every second comment has been "well, listing 1000 songs aint that difficult".

Corpsey
20-01-2015, 01:52 PM
1000 tracks is a bit much. What's he trying to hide?

Better to construct a 10 track playlist of unimpeachable elegance.

Corpsey
20-01-2015, 01:53 PM
I love this track

I've started my first 1000 song playlist. It's 100% bait anthems so far.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCJN59Nr6m3Ct0u42CsfMRlrAgluPvJPy

If you'd like to follow my progress through the annals of unimpeachable music (musical MARBLE, if you will) that's the link.

This is quite hard actually I'm jumping all over the place. You could stick it on shuffle and the tone would deviate wildly. :(

UPDATE: I'm gonna just lay down the foundations in one big splurge and worry about track ordering later. Thanks for sticking with me through this tough ordeal.

Pride!! Ha! What a ludicrous concept.

Im sure there's loads of good stuff there, wasnt trying to be dismissive, simply saw '1000 track mix' and thought 'wow, and then went 'ah'.

I blame you for bad expectation management.

This is a real humbling process for we who doubted Caribou.

I didn't start with a theme so now I'm just chucking in every tune I ever five starred on iTunes. I reckon you could easily do a 1000 track rap only playlist, could be a fairly comprehensive short history of the genre, too. Dunno whether just to plough on now :'(

i cant speak highly enough of my one. i really need to get it out to the children so they get a proper education. caribous one is a great effort but it is the work of a dilletante. skimming the surface of every genre ever cherry picking the hits. ipod on shuffle.

i focus on the essential genres. the proud tradition of london dance music and the music which feeds it ie rap, r&b, dancehall.

no trendy music. like i do jungle but if it could have got played at speed or metalheads i dont include it. no dubstep. no dubstep diaspora. no fleetwood mac.

proper music only to educate the youth. please show this playlist to your little niece, your nephew, your children.

luka

luka
22-01-2015, 12:17 PM
the best thing is no one can do this again. ive made it impossible lol.

you can just discuss it like,maybe he should have swapped that song for this song what do you think?

Corpsey
22-01-2015, 12:48 PM
My one is very much a cherry-picker. I'm in favour of picking cherries, though. Perhaps it is simply laziness that makes me gravitate more and more towards ''anthems'' the older I get. It's like, I COULD pick five or six other tunes by Smif N Wessun than ''Bucktown'', but is "Bucktown" not the best?

Anyway, I'm going to just keep building this playlist now for my own personal amusement, it has failed as a challenge to Caribou/Luka. Then I'm going to get on my nerd shit and really upstage the both of youse. I'm going to crush the buildings on some Snoop shit.

I was kind of sceptical about my own list but just now on shuffle it played

Love Comes Down
She Lives In My Lap
Footsteps On The Dancefloor
Let's Stay Together
Baby Be Mine

What TASTE. What DISCRIMINATION.

luka

i didnt think the great british mcs album was adequate when i came out so at the end of the playlist i made a counteraction. it is very educational. i didnt have to license tunes though so it was quite easy.

i might do a UK MC edit for educational purposes but i wanted to do 1001 tunes to smash Caribou.

haha, i'm not sure this list will do anything to convert dissenters, but at the very least check out the funkystepz tunes on there, i think you might like them.

now you have to do one to smash Luka's ;)

Yeah, fair enough that Speed may not be towards yours or his tastes and all, but it's a bit of an odd statement to rule out the kind of tunes played at Metalheadz, whilst including tunes that were released on Metalheadz. Seems like a bit of a contradiction to me. And even if he's just going for a representation of the UK MC culture which wasn't exactly represented fully at Headz nights, this tune on Headz defo deserves a mention.

on track #989. nearly listened to the whole darn thing.

i've greatly enjoyed this. he's good on "digger" breaks. lots of nice jazz (nice is the correct word of course). sweet bits of bollywood funk. some cool baldelli-type stuff. some really fantastic bits of house i missed - most especially kenlou's "bounce" - an unbelievably fine track. some good rock.

i would say though:

a) found the disco a bit blah. just a bit ordinary. sorry if you're reading this caribou (i mean - people google don't they?)

b) quite a stunning lack of reggae - a total of four songs (or thereabouts) - that certainly reflects american music tastes. americans frequently don't seem to get reggae or dub. it's a generalisation - but i'll defend it. rare is the american who does. i think it's seen through the prism of funk which distorts its combinative/deconstructed essence.

ANYWAY - a great tour through an expert's tastes - we'd all make a different one - and therein lies the charm. now onto luke's!

Never got anywhere near finishing mine, which in any case went off the rails fairly quickly in terms of any conceptual element holding things together. The one thing it did do for me was kick starting an obsession with making playlists on YouTube. Never really thought about doing it before but now it seems like one of the best ways to create mixtapes online.
