Yes, please.

“Five Step [Overdub Mashup]”

Radiohead vs. Dave Brubeck

Also, best thing said to me in recent memory:

“I hope you stay being a meteor that doesn’t just glance off atmospheres and drift away into the dark of space. I hope you keep on keeping on with direct hits on planets and with annihilating their civilizations.”

It feels like I am just too close to love you

Yeah, this is “that song from the IE9 commerical” — though it should be said I am in no way advocating the use of Internet Explorer.

Yet another long delay in new updates — the songs are always there for me, of course, so I apologize once more! I’ll go ahead and put it out there that over the past few months, a little bump in life has developed, but I’ll be okay… just a bit preoccupied, probably.

Therefore, I’m going to ask you (dear reader!) to actually pester me to update. I welcome all demands for new posts — comment on an entry or e-mail me any time at wp@saritate.com, and I should get off my ass and give you some music. If I missed a day of posting, feel free to just nudge me so I don’t go AWOL.

“Roc Boys”

DJ Victory Dance

Mashup of “El Pico” by Ratatat and “Roc Boys (And The Winner Is…)” by Jay-Z

Aside: Mid-Naughties, Local 506, Chapel Hill, NC — Ratatat. Most amazing concert ever.

I need to work on my social awareness.

“Spitfire”

Porter Robinson

2011

Spitfire EP

I recently discovered that I know a (literally) world-famous DJ/producer. He’s 19. He and his brother (who is a close friend) used to make stupid funny videos at the local Harris Teeter late at night, and I remember sitting in my apartment watching a series they did together, laughing my ass off. Then someone goes, “OMFG HAVE YOU HEARD OF PORTER ROBINSON?” And I’m all… “How do you know Nick‘s brother?”

And then I was properly put in my place. I think those Robinson kids are made of magic or something.

Anyway, Porter’s just released his new EP, and now I just get to watch in awe and feel old.
