Chad with obligatory Nagel

Chad’s DJing at the Churchward [Pop Inn] tonight, 9:30-2.
He is not annoying!

I don’t know if you guys have heard Major Lazer or not [it is Diplo, who did that M.I.A. mash-up album back in two thousand ought something, and a bunch of people a la that album Brand New Heavies did, with a tropical/electro/club bent. Fun stuff, though I liked the N.A.S.A. album earlier this year way more.], there is this one song called Baby that samples a baby’s cry and autotunes it and it is kind of funny for a moment but about halfway through I feel like I’m going to start lactating and I am wondering why anyone would do this because it is really upsetting.
Play it here.
[though the guy on it, Prince Zimboo, who is totally that Eddie Murphy vampire skit [incidentally, there is a karaoke regular who sings like that. all kinds of songs.] has the most awesome song about I don’t even know what, “Say Heh”, play that.]

And there is this one song that sounds like a warped old tape where the sound fades in and out.
Play this one, too.

Chad says he has also heard several songs lately that sample that loud BLAT the car radio makes when my cell phone is too near.
