Dystimulation

Music and other modern musings

Old news can be good news.

I’m a little late on this one but better late than never.

In the summer of 2007, I think most us were insanely excited in a dense cloud of disbelief to hear of Sam Spiegel (Dj Squeak E. Clean) and Dj Zegon‘s project N.A.S.A. – North America/South America. The appropriately titled project links the sounds and famed faces of the North and South to form a remarkable album of somewhat unimaginable collaborations; Tom Waits, M.I.A., George Clinton, Kanye, Lykke Li, Spank Rock, SantoGold, RZA, the YYY’s, Red Hot Chili Peppers and even Seu Jorge…Whao! If you’ve not heard the album, Spirit of Apollo, which dropped mid-February, I would highly recommend you do so now. Each track is like a 3-5 minute mental trip to Coachella.

Could there be a better combo than the one we have here?

N.A.S.A. – Gifted feat. Kanye West, Santogold, Lykke Li

FYI – Spiegel is reportedly working on a film detailing the N.A.S.A. project with older bother, Spike Jonze.
