Lights, Passion, Action!

Everybody has been going on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on......

about Passion Pit. Which is fine. I never personally caught the bug since I've been just spacing out to Faze Action and shit lately. But I'm starting to reconsider that notion. I'm happy to say our dear friend and fellow blogger Figure's roommate, Action Jackson has possibly made me a believer. I'm not saying he's some sort of evangelist producer - but he might be on to something.

His remix of Sleepyhead is stuck in my head like cigarette tar to a finger. And I like it. It's got this fantastic old school electro feel - and by electro, I mean REAL ELECTRO (nod to the Grow on that one). With his high hat arrangements giving some serious nods to Africa Bambaatta's Planet Rock and some serious 808 claves and congas to make any throw back break-dancer happy. Throw that in the blender with the haunting chipmunk-esq vocals from the original and some B-More stabs, you might have the perfect jammy jam.

In tennis something like this would be called an Ace.
