BEDA: Mexican Monkey Jam

Monday number three of blogging every day. I could get used to this… if I was a masochist.

After getting an insight into my music tastes yesterday, you may realise that I’m a bit of a fan of the groovy chill-out sound. September by Earth, Wind and Fire, Mr Scruff, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Chic… I could go on. It’s the best stuff for a lazy day, or a crazy night. In my eyes it’s a mix of the current dance music trend that is sweeping the charts, tied to the groovy beats of the 70’s and 80’s. So you can imagine my reaction when a few weeks ago I saw that Daft Punk are releasing a new album, and it’s funky!

And the title… “Random Access Memories“… my geek side is euphoric. I promised myself that I wouldn’t get too excited about an album based on a 15 second sample, but then today I saw this:

How can you not listen to that and not get chills… did I mention I was a little bit excited?

We’re up all night to get lucky. We’re up all Mexican monkeys! Bring on May 21st! Until tomorrow x
