Top of 2008 #6: Fujiya & Miyagi-Lightbulbs

I’ve been a fan of Fujiya & Miyagi since their last album, Transparent Things. I love the casual yet persistent beats, but most of all I love everything about the vocals. Singer David Best’s voice is almost a whisper on most tracks, but he’s just so lovable with his goofy lyrics that fit into the groove of the basslines perfectly. Lightbulbs is just a very solid record by these Kraut-lovers. Am looking forward to what the future holds for these boys.

Getting Down

So I thought I’d share this little mix I made this morning with you. It’s a good little dance mix, great for dancing in your car, cubicle, club, or comfort zone. The editing’s not too hot (my first) but the songs fit well together I think. Hope you enjoy!
