Mash-Up Monday

This weekend I dove head first into a the Mysplice III: Team9 vs. Stereogum album. There was one track in particular that left me very impressed, and it was by an artist which I'm not particularly fond of: Kanye West.

The production on "Lockdown Shelter" is magnificent. The songs puts Ye's "Love Lockdown" with The Rolling Stones "Gimme Shelter." I was surprised how well "Gimme Shelter" went with Ye's song. One very small detail that I thought was a touch of genius was the pitch correction on Jagger's voice. It was such a small but vital touch that really cemented the song for me.
