LA based hip hop duo KnowMads with a uplifting sample based track called “101 The Good Stuff” taken from their upcoming LP “Knew School” to be released on July 15. The original sample is taken from Billie Joel’s “Movin’ Out” and we’ve already had Das Racist “You Oughta Know” with a different twist on the same sample back in 2010 here on CM. Looking forward to play this beauty on one of our YUM YUM parties and if you’re interested in watching the official music video too, there you go.
Brooklyn based Das Racist is another one of those new hip hop crews to watch out for. Known for their use of humor and unkonventional style they made it into almost everybodys Top Tunes of 2010, including ours. After rising to Internet fame with their 2008 song “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell”, Das Racist established themselves with the release of their 2010 mixtapes Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man.
One of my personal highlights is “You Oughta Know” – I just love how they used that Billy Joel Sample[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Das-Racist-You-Oughta-Know.mp3]
just in time for our huuuuge YUM YUM new years eve party, here are the selected 50 top tunes of 2010. i know we ignored a whole bunch of tunes, that we especially as YUM YUM or chromemusic helped make big in our lands or even make it to the peak positions. remember our buddy Stromae?, Ben L’oncle Soul? or that song about the italian that doesnt speak any american-english lol, and many more… but seriously its not like i can bear hearing any of these tunes anymore. the old media has just being overfeeding us with our very own stuff. so here is a list of tunes that we played in 2010, some like mayer hawthorne were even released in 09, but that didnt stop us from coining these tunes in 2010 and thats why they belong here (its just very few exceptions anways). Some mellow, some soulful, some exstatic and some simply beautiful. pretty much what makes up YUM YUM. we had & have an amazing time playing these. thx to all and everyone for making YUM YUM what it is, namely.. one love
ps. the YUM YUM Dj Top tunes coming next week. All our djs showcasing their very favourite tunes of 2010.[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/fuck-you-chrome-edit.mp3]
