Pretty Lights - I Can See It In Your Face

These are the two reasons I wander the halls of Hype Machine - 1) new music and 2) new blogs. To demonstrate this, I implore you to follow the links to a new song I found on a new blog via Hype Machine: "I Can See It In Your Face" by Pretty Lights.

Hype Machine directed me to a great music blog called "Potholes in My Blog: Beats, Rhymes and Life." The blog mostly features hip hop, and it gives a nice mention to this electro hip hop jam from Pretty Lights. It mashes a few genres together - hip hop, downtempo electronic, funk and even blues (which hip hop is derived from). The track is amazing - click here to go to Potholes and download it.
Also, if you have some extra time, read the comments - they're pretty interesting. Comments about how people have never heard a track like this and it's genre bending and such. Really cool to read stuff about this type of track, cuz if you've been listening to funk or downtempo with any sort of regularity you know that this isn't new, though it is a REALLY GOOD TRACK. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking these readers, I just think its interesting - shows you how little attention really creative downtempo gets sometimes. Anyway, check it out, you won't regret it.

THANK YOU HYPE MACHINE!

THANK YOU POTHOLES IN MY BLOG!

THANK YOU PRETTY LIGHTS!

Reposting ish with a few shoutouts seems alarmingly unoriginal especially when last week, the same track got +2000 hits (with all due respect).
