Mumford and Sons
CP rides the line on this one. Hit play on the song if you haven’t already. Yes, that’s a Mumford & Sons sample. “Wack” has to be your first thought. It just has to be, yet you can’t stop listening. Then about a minute into the song, “wack” becomes “dope,” and you’re sold. Download the track for free, and as a bonus check out the NSFW video, starring Mercedeh Allen.
A lot of people hate on Mumford for sounding the same in every single song. And, yeah, they kind of do…but I’ll be damned if I don’t like it.
They’re back again after the latest *Grammy winning* album, Babel, releasing the new single with a video accompaniment. The video is cool, but I still can’t figure out what the four different screens have to do with one another. Maybe it’s just midnight and I’ve been studying for 5 hours, but hey, I just don’t see it.
The song itself is a solid effort, though. None of Mumford & Son’s singles really do it for me to the extent that some of the smaller cuts on the albums do, but, as the industry goes, the single is just the song with most mass appeal, which this track certainly has in droves.
Be on the look out for more from the Sons, and let me know if you figure out the message behind the video in the comments below.
You hold your truth so purely // And swerve not through the minds of men
Mumford and Sons have announced that they will release a second album called Babel on September 24th. Today they released the first official single from the album, “I Will Wait.” Unfortunately we don’t have a direct MP3, but you can listen to the audio on the YouTube video below. It sounds to me like classic Mumford and Sons, which is just about the best I could ask for. I really love the music these guys make and will be anxiously awaiting the album release in September!
I’m a big Mumford & Sons fan (although I need some more new material from them), and this was a really cool remix to hear. This remix puts a very unique twist on the song, and perhaps the coolest part is when they blend the womp with the strumming of the original guitar track. I usually don’t like remixes of songs like this, but this one was extremely will done. Sounds awesome to me. Turn up the bass and kick back.
Well this one just goes off, plain and simple. Porter Robinson starts it a little slow, letting it build up. Then, right around 2:30, he lets it drop. Play this at a rave or in a club, that’s when people start losing it. Porter’s going to be a big, big name in the club scene.
For me as a DJ, this is an extremely useful song. Shouts to DJ Bahler for showing it to me, dude’s the man. This is exactly the kind of song I drop right as a hit peaks in my set. It gets going super fast, Busta spits 1200 words per minute, and the groove of the song is awesome. Right at 3:04, I would drop something MASSIVE, that’s just too perfect of a lead into a song. That’s when I’d bring out the wompiest wompers I have and watch faces melt.
