Telephoned – Keep the Head Ringin’
It’s not really a covers mixtape, because on a lot of the tracks they use the actual music, and it’s sung over with different lyrics. Some have lyrics, but the beats is different. It’s really hard to explain the very subtle art of the “flip” – flipping a popular track into something totally different, even a different essence – but Telephoned has managed to figure it out. This is just as much a Girl Talk mashup, as it is Venetian Snares…..like they had a musical manage with a dance club DJ….and then put a pop singer on the tracks minus the vocal coaching/studio synthesizing. Pretty raw and rather unique, in its own way.
Currently on tour with Chromeo – heard the live set is crazy. My Austin people – August 24th @ Stubb’s. Check it out and let me know how it goes.
