LISTEN: “Chillin on a Plane” by Brand -X (Wale/Lady Gaga/M.I.A.)
Brand-X is a London based DJ, who from what I’ve heard is pretty new, and for some reason I can’t find his webpage/Facebook fan page/MySpace. Aside from his relative obscurity, I really love how he uses M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” beat in mashing with Wale’s “Chillin.” It’s one of those mash-ups that’s just fun to listen to rather than admire. It’s not a legendary mix, but it’s nice for what it is. It’s like watching a fun chick flick compared to sitting down for a serious Roman Polanski film–if you follow the analogy. If nothing else, it just gets me more excited for M.I.A.’s new album coming out this year.
