Blanketed vocals sound really weird. I instinctively feel, when I see the xl logo, that it's a 90s/00s record, but the vocal fx make it sound more 10s/20s.not the beats tho, they are older than 20 years.

That's the flip, I actually prefer to A side

I haven't checked this one yet but I'm sold anyhow. I love those kinda ebm beats and although I'm far from being a fan of Mary J I've always had a soft spot for that tune - or in fact the vocal, love the building, nagging nature of it. So as soon as I realised what that was gonna be my I felt like someone had made a song for me. Or, to put it more negatively, I wondered why the fuck I had never done it myself...

If this side is also good then so much the better. But I've already resolved to buy a copy and rinse it every time I dj...

that vibe also reminds me of that Radio Soulwax mix where they took early 90s Belgian etc proto-gabber and slowed it back down to ~115 bpm

and improved it all by about 1000%

this is my tune of day. more in the slow dance music lane.

i.e. you'd probably call this more "left-field // synthpop" in Discogs terms but you could play it in a cosmic Balearic meets Paradise Garage type set

or as a comment says, "New Wave dub". like a record Holger Czukay and Jah Wobble might have made at the time, but wispier.

a personal favorite, by one of the Wire dudes, one of several excellent side projects members were involved in the mid-80s

Makes me almost want to reconsider Boards of Canada...

Nah.
I know seriously - like maybe I should give them another...nope
not sure this will change your minds but it might do


A mix of Gucci Mane vs Boards of Canada by Caddy Bay I made this album as an outlet for the stress I was feeling while looking for a job fresh out of law school. download the mix at: https://soundcloud.com/caddybay/gucci... or http://www.mediafire.com/download/lva...
