  1. I love Kala, one of my favourite albums of all time and really hip-hop is
    one of about 20 genres it unites. It’s the epitome of the great electronica
    of 2007 thanks to the production of Switch, and adds heaps of world beats,
    disco, rock, reggae, house and grime to the mix

  2. the fact that you put in like 2 secs of “close your eyes (and count to
    fuck)” from “Run The Jewels” at 0:19 got my expectations up way too high!
