Comments from Jason Longoria

Kind of sad "Analyser" didn't make the cut--it's one of my fave AlunaGeorge songs--but the inclusion of "We Are Chosen," "Put Up Your Hands," and "Just a Touch" more than make up for it.

Listening to this song defies it. If it's truly "Nobody's Business" then why make a song about it? It's like wearing neons and standing in the middle of an intersection while screaming, "NOBODY LOOK AT ME!" It is our business, Rihanna. Notwithstanding the whole "we saw how your face looked after Chris Brown shoved it into a window" bit, it is our business because with songs like this, you've /made/ it our business.

Honestly, I get the impression that both Banks and Haze were savvy enough to realize that, regardless of how they feel about each other on a personal basis, they could profit much more by appearing to be "feuding" than by simply remaining quiet. I mean, I keep seeing both their names everywhere. I think that was the goal.

Just when Jessie Ware made me forget about Katy B... Seriously though, this is amazing. Like, some other level shit. "Got Paid" would be just another "OMG I'm a bad bitch" song if it weren't for her soulful vocals + that inescapable Sonic the Hedgehog coin-splash throwback that keeps happening. It's absolutely genius. "Light as a Feather" is so in-tune to the whole "trap"-thing to the extent of dispelling any idea that Katy B doesn't know what's current. She /knows/ what's current. "Danger" might be the most boring track on this EP but that's like saying "OMG this is weird LOL." It's ethereal-R&B at its finest. Jacques Greene was meant to collaborate with Katy B, as if you totally ignored his remix of "Broken Record." And then "Aaliyah" happens and it's like your dreams are collaborating about your dreams. My gut reaction was "God, they're reducing Aaliyah to an archetype," generously. But the fact that it's Ware + Katy B more than makes up for it. Not even mentioning the fact that they turn a trite reference into something transcendent. It would've been so easy for both of them to just pay shameless homage and instead they reflect upon her to the point that they realize she's an inescapable zenith, like she's something they can never hope to reach, and they even humanize her. Like "Jolene" except they think they have a chance. TL,DR: Katy B blew my expectations out of the water and I'm seriously impressed.

Just the fact that he adds Diplo on top of Skrillex pretty much tells you everything you need to know about how this works out, lol. Honestly I sort of tune out after I can't hear Grimes' "la la la la LA" anymore.

Little known fact: it's possible to be sarcastic and not hostile at the same time. Pointing out similarities ≠ hating on either. In fact, I'm both a Ke$ha fan and a LDR fan. Thank you for jumping to conclusions, though.

I agree. Although, you could that dubstep in its original form is already dead, and that "dubstep" nowadays is really something else. I think that's what they were implying.

Hearing deadmau5 bitch about Skrillex and Guetta is like hearing Miley Cyrus bitch about Selena Gomez and Miranda Cosgrove. You can whine about technicality and simplicity and what not, but at the end of the day, you're the blandest, most commercialized representatives of the genre and you all suck.
