Curious what you might hear? A while ago Artist Direct asked him to put together a “crate diving” playlist form them, and this is what got Vitoed (song clips available on their site):
1. Chicago – “Street Player”
A classic track with a great hook.
2. Boz Scaggs – “Lowdown”
When I was in Australia there was an infomercial for a Time Life music series called Soft Rock’s Greatest Hits or something like that. This track came on, it rules. Here’s a link to a clip of a live version of the song with the legendary Jeff Porcaro on drums.
3. Map of Africa – “Black Skin, Blue Eyed Boys”
Really awesome cover of a great track by the Equals.
4. The Imperials – “Can You Imagine”
When I’m feeling down, this Daft Punk-sampled song makes me feel good.
5. Chicken Lips – “He Not In (DJ Greg Wilson Edit)”
One of my favorite Greg Wilson edits of one of my favorite Chicken Lips tracks.
6. Hot Butter – “Popcorn”
A great track. Amazing moog line.
7. Frankie Valli – “Beggin’ (Pilooski Edit)”
A truly beautiful song, one of my favorites right now.
8. Scorpions – “Sails of Charon”
One of the best metal songs or songs in any genre ever.
9. The Incredible Bongo Band – “Bongo Rock”
A classic. Just found it on 7″ again—total awesomeness!
10. Timbaland – “Oh Timbaland”
I can’t stop listening to this first track off his new album.
