Thou Shalt Always Kill (De La Edit)

Filed under: Break Beat, Hip Hop, Video | Tags: , ,

Dan Le Sac make’s the funkiest beats and Scroobius Pip gives us his rather intelligent and satrical opinions about the current pop culture on this hit last year. Now they’ve enlisted De La Soul to spice it up even further. Don’t get too hot on this one, ’cause afterall, they’re just a band like Pip said. And if you’re edited to that beat like I do, look below this sentence.

The Monkey Clap’s Last Post of 2008

Greetings! Happiest of New Years to everyone who’ve been popping by once in awhile since this blog started somewhere during September. As of this moment, there have been 2100 clicks in  the space of 3 months. I am very happy with the statistics, but most of all, I’ve been really stoked at having the opportunity to share these music that I like to everyone round the world.

Every year round this time, music bloggers all over the world would lose a whole lotta hair stressing themselves to come up with their own top 10 lists. Many people would not see the point cause almost everyone’s doing it, but I’d be doing it too because it will put a good fullstop to this great year and then have a firm reminder of songs that I’ve played over and over and over during 2008. So here it is.

Monkeyclapeducation’s 10 Best of 2008

10. Simian Mobile Disco – Run

In collabo with Nike and I’ve mentioned that it sounds really like Kraftwerk’s Tour De France, caught them this year (very happy to see them) and I went nuts when they played this one nearing the end of the set.

Here’s the full version and my edit of it.

09. Patrice Baumel – Roar

Roar is like the best ever DJ Tool ever made. When this song’s up, I’d take a break from the banging kick drums and then close my eyes to hear it. Sometimes it sounds like trains, sometimes it sounds like V12 Engine, but it always sounds very damn good!

Patrice Baumel – Roar

08. Eine Kleine Nacht Musik – La Serenissima

Riton is so underrated! And I’m dying to see his Eine Kleine Nacht Musik project get big. It will teach kids these days about every intricasy of krautrock, what made it sounds so smooth. La Serenissima has all of it.

Get it here.

07. Dj Mujava – Township Funk

Various DJs with who toured Africa regularly has been playing this one ever since 07. However, it only got released by Warp and got big in the UK this year. Been playing it non stop ever since this got into my radar!

Click here for it.

06. Tiga & Zyntherius – Sunglasses at Night (Black Devil Disco Club Mix)

The original is so mysteriously kitschy, and new up and comers Black Devil turn it into acid disco! Tiga’s so big this year together with releases of Mind Dimension and Worm, and Black Devil is really gona make the headlines, matter of when.

Here!

05. Minilogue – Jamaica (Dubfire Remix)

This track is incredibly sick. Minimal house has never ever been this good! You have to listen to the whole damn 13 minutes and count the times you orgased.

Here it is.

04. Late of the Pier – Focker (Boys Noize Terror Remix)

We’re all very thankful to Late of the Pier for single handedly killing every new raver. The idea of being in a rock band is to not conform to layman knowledge and ideas of how things should sound and LotP totally defines this idea with their incredible album. With a little help from Alex Ridha, they’ve this legendary song.

Late of the Pier – Focker (Boys Noize Terror Remix)

03. Mystery Jets – Two Doors Down (Duke Dumont Reconstruction)

The most incredible breakdown of 2008. And mind you, 2008 sees many songs with very awesome breakdowns. This Duke Dumont remix of Mystery Jets (dropping by sunny lil Singapore for the next RSG) beats them all by a whole full notch.

Mystery Jets – Two Doors Down (Duke Dumont Reconstruction)

02. Dj Mehdi – Pocket Piano (Joakim Berger Remix)

Simply stirs your stomach whenever this one is played in a club. You find yourself suddenly in tights holding ray guns like science fiction movies from the 80s.

I have it here.

01. Popof – The Chomper (LSD Version)

And finally! Popof is another DJ that’s grossly underated! Allow me to emphasize it again, Popof is immensely underrated! For me, he’s songs and skills are definately up at the level of Sasha’s and Richie Hawtin’s. If you’ve stumbled across this list in anyway and never heard of Popof before in your life. I urge you to please download and have a listen!

Popof – The Chomper (LSD Version)

The 5 Other That Got Very Close

C’mon it’s insane to come up with just 10 songs with my shortlist having close to 60 songs, so here’s the 5 other that should’ve made it but didn’t.

Friendly Fires feat. Au Revoir Simone – Paris (Aeroplane Remix)

Justice – Planisphere

Sebastien Tellier – L’Amour Et La Violence

Tiga – Mind Dimension

MGMT – Kids (Soulwax Remix)

Sebo Sebo’s 2008 Best Work


In no particular order, these 3 are my favourite of all the mixtapes I’ve concocted during ’08.

This song’s not exactly new, the original was by Teddybears with Mad Cobra and then Robyn covered it. I don’t follow local radio so I’m not sure whether Singaporeans had caught the trend but it is imensely popular in Europe for sometime now. Recently there’s a host of incredible remixes, I bring you two of ’em.

This is of course every hot blooded young male’s dream. A TV series filled with hot girls but all our attention are on this hot car. It gets better, the Knight Industries Three Thousand‘s not just an ordinary car of course. This show’s filled to the brim with kitschy fun but gets you all gripped to your seat at times as well. Best part of it is the fond memories of the old series which I’ve only caught the re-runs when I was just a little boy. That old Tans-Am can never be replaced, but this Shelby Mustang just got everyone so hot!

The most epic part of Knight Rider is it’s most amazing theme, take a listen of the new version in the above video, and I bring you some of my favourite sampled versions of it.

Sonido Lasser Drakar – Pontiac Firebird 82 (YSI)
Panjabi MC ft. Jay Z – Beware of the Boys (YSI)



The On the Fly Lick

Now I’m proud of what I did that’s totally impromptu and on the fly. I didn’t construct a playlist, was partially drunk and wobbly all over, but this is what I’ve got. Doesn’t sound as tight as Ravelick of Steel, but this one’s totally raw and unexpected at times.
01. Hot Chip – Touch Too Much (Fake Blood Remix)
02. Machines Don’t Care – On a Roll
03. Drums of Death – Breathe (Curses! Remix)
04. Bingo Players – Get Up (Diplo Remix)

Which hot blooded young male could have idnored this video. Nothing would get us more interested than these webcam babes in skimpy clothings moving so naturally to the new Van Helden. He sure knows what is a good booty and mmmhm, so damn delish! Mowgli’s remix is good, not the really epic fidget tract like the Fake Bloods, but it just reminds me of the video, and that is good. I only blinked 3 times throughout, yes I counted.

Grooved to an awesome tune as I was going through my almost unmanageble music collection. N.E.R.D. really knows what’s good. First up is their remix of Daft Punk’s played to death track, and they just put their *bling blings* onto it.

Daft Punk – Harder Better Faster Stronger (Neptunes Remix) (YSI)

There’s also their theme song for the Converse spot, in collabo with the 2 most awesome artistes of recent times. We have Santogold and that guy from The Strokes together with Pharell on this one, so addictive, so damn sexy.

N.E.R.D. – My Drive Thru (feat. Santogold, Julian Casablanca) (YSI)
