The Whole Internet Has Been a Prelude to This Mashup of LCD Soundsystem and Miles Davis
Gawker, By Neetzan Zimmerman, November 16
Some of the most exceptional contributions to modern culture were admittedly produced while on too little sleep and too much Internet, and this simple-yet-stellar mashup/sync-up of LCD Soundsystem’s “New York, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down” and Miles Davis’ Elevator to the Gallows score is no exception.
Late one night in London, united by their inability to sleep, Alessandro Grespan and his “ex flatmate and secret lover” Eleonora Rossi came together “in a spontaneous randomly perfect collaboration” to unite these two cosmically-linked pieces of music.
