Etienne de la Sayette – I’m So Cool In Seoul

paris djs

My most relaxing discovery this week… a 2 piece at that, Im so cool in Seoul & Lord Bougainvillard by Etienne de la Sayette >>>> go be cool>>>

 Things starts with “I’m So Cool In Seoul”, the soundtrack to a very pleasant, relaxing road-movie. Close your eyes. You’re in a taxi, in the streets of Seoul, Korea. It’s the early hours, the day has just barely started. The sun is slowly rising to some deep, soul jazz funkyness. In the background you hear some Zimbabwean mbira…

When suddenly, out of nowhere, “Lord Bougainvillard” arrives on the scene.

The mbira is still playing, but the scenery has morphed into a kind of out of hand chamber afrobeat ‪paying homage to‬ an imaginary explorer.

Or is that Etienne de la Sayette messing with your mind?
Open you eyes. Play it again. Search for the details. It’s all in the details.

Out there.

My Train is Always on Schedule (Fan Made Documentary on Jay Eelectronica)

jay-electronica-profile

Peep this Fan made perspective on Jay Electronica. A mini documentary showcasing the electric language of the paranormal poet. .,, just a little something for the heads “I overheard niggas saying Jay was on the verge
He could make Rumsfeld resign with rhymes he never heard

Commune with the birds
And can manipulate matter with the usage of words
Throwin’ dice on the curb
I’m the best and the freshest with the written text, fuck what you heard
It’s the, metaphysical, dolby digital

Any Joe’ll tell you, the flow’s so pivotal
Every word’s literal
Each diatribe is sort of like an interview
Come get an inner view
Right past the man and the myth to the mineral

I was born uptown a mile from the river view
Look, I’m a simple man, ya understand?
Masterin’ my temple man, tryin’ to expand
But when they think you simple, man
They’ll try to play you out like you a simpleton
See what I’m sayin’
Niggas want pain not mercy

I’m writin’ in my Moleskine on the train to Canarsie
Stand clear of the closin’ doors

The people are in constant fear of a Trojan War
The vehicle that’s supposed to free us is just an whore
I gotta call ’em like I see ’em
Even if it means they’ll sanction my per diem
The angels will thank me in the streets if I see ’em
Sayin’, there he go but I wouldn’t wanna be him

Holdin’ up a three and reppin’ for New Orleans
Let us begin….-Jay Electronica
