So I asked for suggestions for Featured Friday and kindly I got loads from Ecstatic Eva. So actually she sent me quite a hot and controversial song.
The story goes like this: some unknown 24-year-old student of philosophy and politics that on the sides calls himself DJ Wankelmut takes an old song by Asaf Avidan called Reckoning Song or One Day, remixes it and uploads it on to his SoundCloud naming it in brackets “unmastered/unsigned”. And then, what happens is internet magic. People go nuts, view sky-rocket and the remix explodes into a viral victory. It shocks everyone, most of all the unknown non-big shot DJ himself, Jacob.
Now all that fame and hype and the fun didn’t last long, now he is in negotiations with Sony who own the rights to the song and he has had to take down the remix from his SoundCloud. But we hear there will be more to come from him, if he can match the mountainess expectations after this hit. Let’s see what there is to come.
But of course there is an odd version lying on youtube, so have a listen:
Dont forget James Murphy tonight (see last post).
I wish I could make a soundtrack to my life and breathe in the notes every day
