Feyorz - Wake Up, Bitch.
*Coffee Table Talk*
I recently came across this artist (shout outs to Rappamelo website for putting me on)…!
Hailing from Russia is producer Feyorz. I can’t really explain his style, some say he has elements of old school ‘70’s Bronx’ feel, whilst others say it’s more of that Rare Groove feel, either way I’m feelin’ it!
Particular favourites of mine on his Pillow Talk EP are Need4u, Nevaleav & the track I decided to showcase to you all ‘Wake Up Bitch’. Now the last track mentioned was the one that reeled my ears in first.
- Wake Up, Bitch - This song just paints the illest setting your brain! I always feel like I should be waking up on a white sandy beach in the West Indies with the crashing waves rocking you back to that peaceful sleep you just woke up out of….. Very atmospheric, the drums aren’t too vicious either, just a track you can happily rock away to.
- Nevaleav (Featuring Boho Fau) - Now this is where the Rare Groove influence comes through soo badly. The intro is bangin’…! Love the keys on this one, although I do find the singer on the chorus a little too loud for the music (although that might just be me), however my favourite parts of the song are the ad-libs in the background (too dope)!
- Need4u (Featuring Gillespy) - I can’t but help thinking back when I was a kid, in the back of my dad’s car on the way to school listening to Jazz FM (yes Jazz FM not Smooth FM) when listening to this song! The song has production elements of Luther Vandross in it, like the little guitar and synth riff that comes in mid-track, not forgetting the vocals too…!
I really enjoy listening to this album, however it has to be the right time i.e. the journey home from work, early morning, or even on Sunday’s…! Sure he didn’t name it Pillow Talk for nothing…..!
Available here through Bandcamp, and while you’re at it go check his other work out…!
New from Swedish sock brand Happy socks is their Paisley sock.
…..Two words: “Ahhhhhh Sheeeeiiiiiiitttt”
I’ve been waiting (too long) for a brand to pull this off correctly. Whilst I still don’t think its 100% right, their pretty darn close! I personally would taken it that little step further and gone for gang coloured socks (blue, red, etc), but totally understand why they didn’t.
Anyhoo, ordered two pairs in the black, a little too much going on with the red pair. There’s also a blue pair which I don’t like at all so didn’t bother posting it up.
Not the best picture, however I did get me some new BAPE Sta logo ankle socks…!
Still Here………(just about)
I haven’t posted up here in a lonnnngggg ass time as I haven’t seen (or bought) any decent socks.
Maybe summer doesn’t help the sock industry much…..lets hope Autumn/Winter ‘13 will have some treats in store for us!
