This week PETRIe gets instrumentally infested. Eerie by nature and artificially upbeat, this playlist amounts to a constant cycle of urban rhythms and high rises. Chaotic and daring, we wondrously blend war and peace with non-stop tempo adjustments. Catch it while you can.
We begin with Voicelittle’s remix of M.I.A’s ‘Bamboo Banga’, a no nonsense record that goes straight into the thick of the groove with its warm funk flow. Powerhouse pair, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar, mix intelligent lyrics with a bass lead 70s sound in ‘No More Parties in L.A’. Expect more spontaneous projects from these huge artists. Drk’s ‘Soft Crush’ blends slow transient strings and heavy L.A. vibes, underlined by sampling over multiple loops. Santigold - ‘Disparate Youth (Amateur Best remix)’ is broken and chopped up into a pumped rework, better suited to this rapid set list.
Chet Faker ‘In-Between’ provides a freshly uploaded piece featuring news reports and coverage of emergency and weather services over radio. This track beautifully mixes storms into a well incorporated beat that hastily progresses. Little Dragon’s ‘Cat Rider (Poolside Remix)’ steadily hits you with a tribal grouping of percussion and soulful relaxation.
Moving back into the chaos, Sam Gellaitry’s 'Payme’ explodes throughout with racing drum sequences and arpeggiated vocal samples. MMOTHS ‘Eva’ is one not to be missed; this fascinating song manages to captivate you throughout from start to finish. Imagine James Blake and Bon Iver collaborating, this may be the birth child.
