Clocks x Buena Vista Social Club and St. Germain!

It's almost a shame that the birth control medicine YAZ used the St. Germain song Sure Thing as Background music for their cheesy commercial, but I tell you what, I'm sure they are selling alot more records becuse of it. Sampled from John Lee Hooker and Miles Davis' (What a combination!!!!) song "Harry's Philosophy" (from the "Hot Spot" soundtrack - M.Davis, J.L. Hooker, A. Cooper, T. Mahal and R. Rogers), "Sure Thing" reaches that happy medium where cool meets sophistication and intersects with sexy!! The St. Germain Album "Tourist" is a brilliant album and definitely is worth a listen!

On Saturday I played a version of Clocks by Coldplay, that I have heard before, but was a little skeptical about how it would be recieved by the masses. I heard Dj Enferno play it at Fly a couple of weeks back, and decided to try it for myself. It is a really well done mash up of Coldplay and Buena Vista Social Club, which by the way is one of my favorite documentaries of ALL TIME!! The crowd was slow to recieve it, but like anything new in DC, give it time. Enjoy!!
