Play This SongPosted: May 26, 2009
I came across today’s selection while browsing a great blog called Motel de Moka which can be found here.
It was a part of a playlist that was posted on said blog and I found it to be quite mesmerizing. There are no completely discernible vocals, but what remains is an entrancing hip-hop beat with a sample on repeat.
For some reason, I can’t get it out of my head. According to what I can gather from the blog and the various corners of the internet, it’s a mix made by a man named Stro from a group called The Procussions. They are pictured below.
The leftmost gentleman in the photo above is Stro.
Aside from working with The Procussions, he creates mixes on his own and posts them up on his myspace page.
Now, I am a big fan of hip hop of any form and this one certainly has grabbed my attention. I’m not entirely sure if this is the name of the track but when I downloaded the mp3 it came labeled as ‘Play This Song’ so I’m going to leave it that way.
Download the song, put it in your iPod, and take a cruise pondering life, the universe, and everything.
