i never felt a part of anything. i felt apart from everything.

I've been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand. Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man? New sensations barely interest me for another day. I've got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away. It's getting faster, moving faster now, it's getting out of hand. On the tenth floor, down the back stairs, it's a no man's land. Lights are flashing, cars are crashing, getting frequent now. I've got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it out somehow. What means to you, what means to me, and we will meet again. I'm watching you, I'm watching her, I take no pity from your friends. Who is right, who can tell, and who gives a damn right now? Until the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know. Until the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know. Until the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know. I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling. I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling. Feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling.

massive fan of these guys and their style. little glo-fi. little chillwave. little glitch. little hip/hop

gold panda - uk artist, built his rep on the back of some great remixes(little boots, telepathe, health) before releasing his own japanese/vhs inspired minimal techno hip/hop tunes.

little loud
another uk producer. been following this guy since i heard his remix of memory house's 'bicycle'. so far he's only released remixes and this cover but his blog promises that original tunes are on the way.

star slinger
uk. again. darren williams self-releases his own instrumental hip/hop tunes. sample-laden beat tapes showcasing his eclectic and excellant taste in music along with some crafty remix's are all available on his site, strongly recommend you get them. exhibit A for his music taste: this first track samples life without buildings' 'the leanover'. get 'the leanover' here.
**these are both serious tunes. must download.

Holy Rollers + RAC

this film look okay. despite how annoying jesse eisenberg's face is he is pretty much exclusively in good films (squid and the whale, adventureland, zombieland). but the soundtrack is the real reason i want to see it. RAC (remix artist collective) make great music. check the soundcloud page and have a listen. most of the remix's are up for free download.
