PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: There’s now a really long version of ‘Cut To The Feeling’

This post was originally published on this site

‘Cut To The Feeling’, the epoch-redefining three-minutes-28-seconds uberbanger whose emotional power has created a colossal popcultural centrifuge around the Jeppo-shaped axis of which spin the dreams of aspirations of several generations, has just got better.

And if you’re thinking “well hold on there just a minute you dickhead, I can’t see how ‘Cut To The Feeling’ can conceivably have got any better at all, considering how very enjoyable it is”, consider the problem we just mentioned: it only lasts for three and a half minutes. Well that’s a problem that has now been addressed.

An individual called DJ De wanted to recut ‘Cut To The Feeling’, and that’s just what he did. His ‘I Had A Dream’ re-edit lasts for well over seven minutes and the part at 0:43 really does represent everything that’s above-tolerable about being alive.

We’ve mentioned DJ De a few times over the last couple of years: he specialises in extended pop edits and is pretty good at it. (Most of his best ones have disappeared down the back of the internet thanks to SoundCloud’s anti-enjoyment policy, but this Ellie Goulding ‘Something In The Way You Move’ one has made its way to YouTube and is v good.)

During the later stages of the 20th century, extended 12″ edits were a pretty standard part of the pop process but they fell out of fashion in the 90s, and these days officially-sanctioned extended versions are incredibly rare. Maybe, in this era of artists exploring any and every avenue that leads to maximised streams, extended mixes should make a comeback?

Watch Carly Rae Jepsen Perform With The Toronto Symphony Orchestra

This post was originally published on this site

Carly Rae Jepsen sang “Your Type” with a string quartet from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at last year’s Polaris Music Prize gala, and the team-up was so good that they decided to do it again — but bigger. Last night, Queen Carly performed an entire concert with the full Toronto Symphony … More »

♫ Listen: Carly Rae Jepsen – “Cut to the Feeling”

This post was originally published on this site

Pure fire summer pop classic from Carly Rae. Is this what I’m listening to when running through the city, Rocky style? You better believe it, people. Sometimes I wish a DJ playing a basement show would put aside the hardware based techno and drop this banger. I guarantee even the saltiest of punks would throw their hands in the air. A man can dream, can’t he?

IT’S HAPPENING IT’S HAPPENING JESUS CHRIST IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING

This post was originally published on this site

To coin (not coin quote but still) a phrase: here we… here we… here we fucking go!!!

This is proper dare-to-dream territory.

‘Cut To The Feeling’, the song which Carly Rae Jepsen consigned to the Jeppo Song Mountain when she compiled the ‘E•MO•TION’ album, the song WHICH WAS THEN LEFT ON THE REJECT HEAP when she whacked out that album’s accompanying b-side collection, the song which Jeppo didn’t even release as an international iTunes bonus track, the song which she basically left for dead in a bucket on the hard shoulder of the pop superhighway, and the song which has only now been released on the soundtrack of an extremely bad looking film, has been serviced to UK radio.

Radio 1’s Greg James has made it his Song Of The Week. This means it gets one play every single day this week.

Which also means that even if no other DJ ever plays this song in the UK, it will have achieved almost half a dozen plays on national UK radio.

This is what old Reitho was talking about back in the day, isn’t it.

  • INFORM: Carly Rae Jepsen has recorded 2017’s song of the summer and that song is now available to stream.
  • EDUCATE: This is how you create the perfect pop song, or at least the near-perfect pop song because if we’re all honest the pre-chorus could probably do with a bit of work.
  • ENTERTAIN: This song is entertaining, yes, but actually it also redefines all previously accepted boundaries of entertainment in the sense that on hearing ‘Cut To The Feeling’ it immediately becomes clear that entertainment has no boundaries whatsoever and is in fact totally limitless.

This is definitely in the Top 2 perceived underdog surprise triumphs of the last seven days.

New Music Friday: Carly Rae Jepsen at the top, no total disasters at the bottom, various collaborations in between

This post was originally published on this site

Song of the week:
Carly Rae Jepsen — ‘Cut To The Feeling’
What you need to understand here is that this song was almost on Carly’s b-sides collection. Which means it was also almost on ‘E•MO•TION’. Which means this song has been passed up on twice, before finally finding its home on the soundtrack for a crap film. This beautiful, magnificent song. This song that could and will prompt a thousand summer dancefloor stampedes. This song whose chorus could raise the Titanic from the sea bed. This song bursting with a natural luminescence so intense that it would shine bright in a Vantablack pop dungeon. THIS SONG was cast aside on multiple occasions. We don’t know what Carly Rae So-Called ‘Jepsen’ thinks she’s playing at but if we ever find out there are other songs like this in the  ‘E•MO•TION’ scrapheap we will go absolutely ballistic.

Wrong of the week:
The Little Mix artwork
No total disasters on this week’s playlist, and Little Mix’s worst single for a while is improved by Stormzy turning up, but unspecial mention must go to the ‘Power’ artwork which commits a number of crimes not least of which is the fact that IF YOU’RE GOING TO USE AN ILLUSTRATION FOR YOUR SINGLE ARTWORK THERE’S NO EXCUSE AT ALL FOR NOT INCLUDING THE FEATURED ARTIST, JESUS CHRIST.

Additional notes:

  • This week’s new releases include various artists — including Dagny, Grace Mitchell and Allie X — who at one point looked like they might save the world, and given a couple of lucky breaks still might.
  • The debut release from Robinson, whose new video we showed you yesterday, is very exciting.
  • Noah Cyrus‘ new one feels like her best release to date. Since the release of ‘Malibu’ it also feels, and we presume this was precisely the opposite of The Big Plan, like it could be a Miley Cyrus song.
  • Halsey and Lauren Fifth Harmony‘s big bisexual love song is ‘quite a moment’.
  • The Nick Jonas, Anne-Marie and Mike Posner song is a release best described as ‘unnecessary’.
  • Rita Ora‘s new single is pretty good in a Little Mix album track kind of way.
  • The Troye Sivan and Martin Garrix release would be better with a bit more Troye and a bit less Martin but we’re sure Garro is a lovely man with a fine moral compass who’s kind to his friends and wouldn’t think twice about stepping in to rescue an injured bird.

♫ Listen: Danny L Harle feat. Carly Rae Jepsen – “Super Natural (felicita remix)”

This post was originally published on this site

As we reported   15   day(s) ago, PC Music will be releasing something new every day for the month of May. Today, for “Month of Mayhem” release #  17  , we get a new [song/video/album/EP/mix/other] from   felicita   titled   “Super Natural (felicita remix),” a track originally by Danny L Harle feat. Carly Rae Jepsen  . It’s a really   I HATE MAD LIBS KILL ME   and   DO IT NOW   [song/video/album/EP/mix/other]. A person on social media said   “This is where I decided to mute this and put on some N SYNC”  !

  “Super Natural (felicita remix),” a track originally by Danny L Harle feat. Carly Rae Jepsen   follows   felicita  ’s last release, which was   “ecce homo”  . That one was very   I HATE MAD LIBS KILL ME   too, but also   FIND ME AND PLEASE MURDER ME. I AM READY TO DIE  .

Experience   “Super Natural (felicita remix),” a track originally by Danny L Harle feat. Carly Rae Jepsen   by   felicita   [above/below], check out the previous Month of Mayhem release right here, and don’t forget to   KILL ME!! (and also read a “conversation” between felicita and Danny L Harle below)  .

See you tomorrow!

DLH:
OK so this remix is complete nonsense, what are you even trying to do?

felicita:
To quote something you said in a recent interview, which I liked and agree with: ‘the way in which music is performed is largely uninteresting, just as long as it SOUNDS amazing…’

I decided at the outset of felicita that I would only do remixes if they were very occasional, for ‘big’ or ‘mainstream’ artists, and then only if I could take them wherever I feel like.

DLH:
Why does your music never settle into a regular rhythm or anything? I can’t follow it.

felicita:
I’m gonna answer this question with a series of questions:

Why is your music so painfully generic?

Is it born of a blinkered and pre-failed attempt at a kind of ‘cultural universalism’, which you pursue through your patrician notion of ‘Pop’ music?

Do you regard difference and formal invention as anathema to ‘the mainstream’, which you pledge allegiance to, albeit to an outdated version, which you are desperately trying to force back to life, like trying to administer CPR to a 3310, in the hope that your music actually becomes ‘Pop’ music, though you know it never will, cannot be, because no-one listens to or cares about N Sync anymore?

DLH:
My five year old niece could your make music tbh?

felicita:
I’d like to see him try.

DLH:
Do you feel guilty about anything and do you ever harbour secrets?

felicita:
Both, all the time. Secrets are Sexy.

DLH:
Why are you signed to PC Music ?

felicita:
Good question. Because I believe in Pop music..

DLH:
Do you like stand-up comedy? Because your music is a joke.

felicita:
I don’t need stand-up comedy…..people are funny enough already.

DLH:
Do you like Miley Cyrus single ‘Malibu’? What would you say to her about it?

felicita:
Three thousand ninety Li farther southeast, then northeast, stands Departing Doves Mountain.

On its heights are many mulberry trees.

There is a bird dwelling here whose form resembles a crow, with a patterned head, white beak, and red feet.

It is called Jingwei and makes a sound like its name.

Jingwei was once a human named Nüwa.

Nüwa was swimming in the Eastern Sea when she was unable to return to shore and drowned.

She transformed into the Spirit-Guardian Jingwei.

All day she collects twigs and stones from the Western Mountains, and carries them in her beak, to fill up the Eastern Sea.

The Zhang River emanates from here and flows eastward into the Yellow River.

Flyboy – Run Away With Me (feat. Radiochaser)

This post was originally published on this site

I’ll be honest, Carly Rae Jepsen is not at all someone I intend to listen to. However, Flyboy and Radiochaser have transformed this Jepsen song into something special (never thought I’d say that). The track was released on Tipsy Records, a record label gaining a lot of traction as a solid taste maker for chilled house vibes.

Flyboy fits those chilled house vibes perfectly with this new track. Using the vocal and guitar riffs from the talented Radiochaser, Flyboy crafts an atmosphere of escape with every kick, clap, and vocal chop. The track can be downloaded for free for a limited time only, so grab your copy while it’s still hot:
