My Favorite Color. Another Youtube mix from Kutiman. Previously.

That was... muddy, occasionally confusing, and overall not very impressive. And that makes me sad. Because Thru You is one of the most amazing things in the world. I hope this is just a hiccup in his continuing efforts to make amazing audiovisual collages.

I thought everything just fell into place, and every individual part contributed to the mix very well. I was just amazed again

Nice. Mellow, cool and groovy.

I don't know, I'm agreeing with cthuljew here. There seemed to be very little rhythmic relationship between the different elements, and the vocals were pretty incoherent (compare with an impeccable track like "Just a Lady" or "I'm New").

Ricky Gervais is pretty ok on drums.

(stick around to see the success Tenesan1 deserves be bled away by Rebecca Black et al...)

Not his best work, IMO, but "Thru You" remains the high point of remix culture, and a damn fine album of music on its own.

Back when I used to overdub from cassette to cassette (in the glorious days of, say, 1986) I would usually reach a point where I'd gone too far — too much tape hiss, too many ideas at once. Kutiman just reached that point.

Fantastic! Love the complexity: reminds of Bitches Brew era Miles Davis.

Granted, it definitely doesn't groove as hard as most of Thru You, but I definitely dig the free fusion-esque vibe it's got going. Maybe a few more listens might dissuade the detractors.

i thought this worked better as a piece of music than the other stuff of his i've come across. i thought it was quite gorgeous - if i'd heard it in a blindfold test i'd have guessed it was the work of nostalgia 77 or someone like that.

What, the My Bloody Valentine point? Good! MOAR please.

This was soulful and wonderful. I prefer it to his earlier work which in retrospect sounds a bit cookie cuttery and obvious. This was looser and more interesting. He could still stand to go outside the lines more than this, really fuck some shit up. I hope he does.

Ditto that. Give it a chance.
