party tricks for youtube discos, vol. 3

Ever had the feeling that some vid is trying so hard to be in a specific style that it effectively gets bodysnatched by a different song? While going through the recent entries in the Singles Jukebox for our previous meeting, I felt this odd sense of displacement over Disclosure feat Mary J Blige's 'F For You' - indeed, take this and start mixing it into the Disclosure/Blige track at about 0:49/0:50 of the latter, then try what happens with Adeva's sound superimposed over Disclosure/Blige clip...
Welcome to Class'14 (most of you seem to be here now) - and the alumni are also welcome to stick around!

The links for 19 Feb session:

Cybotron 'Enter' reissue review @ Pitchfork

(full reissue album available in Spotify, most tracks can be found in YouTube - don't confuse it with another Cybotron, Australian synth-prog outfit from late 70s, also occasionally an intriguing listen though)

Velvet Underground 'White Light/White Heat' reissue review

(full reissue album in Spotify, the HD original in YouTube )
