Completely random Friday greatness: Electronic music pioneer and composer Wendy Carlos revisits bits of never-before-heard music from the scores for Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and A Clockwork Orange. [via Resident Advisor]
Shout out to the Mighty Martorialist for putting me onto this. As Marty says, this song is a close cousin to ”Danny Glover”. Only I’d argue that, while Thugga’s vocal on ”Danny Glover” is the WTF element to that song (as crazy as the beat is), the 808 Mafia beat here is the real curveball - all rubbery and trippy, like a Zaytoven beat coated in the metallic brawn of 808Mafia’s aesthetic. Saying that, K Camp’s vocal is hardly unmemorable, and testifies to the ear-worm Gold Rush that’s been kicked off in rap music in recent years by the discovery and dissemination of autotune in street rap.
