G-Eazy, “Lost in Translation”
I’ve been listening to G-Eazy a lot over the past few weeks— his flow is so easy to follow and he even has a couple of good thematic concepts for his songs (“Makeup Sex,” “Runaround Sue.”) I’ve also been listening to PON PON PON, one of the Japanese videos I threw up on here when I was delving into the seamy underbelly of j-pop vids.
I got to wake up this morning and find out that both of these musical interests of mine have somehow found each other. The world is a good place.
Here’s the original PONPONPON for comparison’s sake. I don’t think I can ever again consider a Lady Gaga video interesting.
JAKAZiD, “PONPONPON De Floor (きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ vs. Major Lazer)”
Not safe for work, but you’ve probably seen the Pon De Floor video enough times to know that by now. I am definitely including this next time I DJ. The collision of the pitch-perfect fluff of j-pop with the dancehall dirty dutch of Major Lazer is like watching the corruption of innocence. The course of history has been irrevocably altered. We’ll never forget this day.
