LISTEN | You Won’t Hear These Holiday Songs At The Deli

With the holiday season in full swing, all the usual holiday songs can start to sound a little aggressive. We wanted to listen to something different, so in true mash-up form BAMIN (Build And Make It Now) put together a playlist of traditional songs covered by an eclectic array of artists from Cocteau Twins, Beyoncé, Sufjan Stevens, Kanye West, Run DMC, Fleet Foxes, Kylie Minogue, Kurtis Blow, etc..And there’s a few original songs that just feel appropriate for this wintry time. Enjoy. 


PLAY | M.I.A. Matangi

“If you only live once why we keep doing the same shit?” M.I.A. asked via twitter. We couldn’t agree more with the sentiment.
Here at BAMIN (Build And Make It Now), we’ve been playing M.I.A.’s new album on loop. Her beat-heavy thumper titled, “Y.A.L.A.”, which stands for “You Always Live Again”, challenges Drake’s Y.O.L.O. mantra and makes it so much better.
M.I.A.’s music has an uncanny ability to predict the future of sound. And if you haven’t already noticed, there are echoes of “Bird Flu” in her new track “MATANGI”. Kind of like how your BAMIN bag takes on a new shape when you add new parts.

PLAY | Rihanna “Stay” feat. Mikky Ekko—Datamoshed
It’s raining in New York, and this track is almost the perfect complement—drippy visuals match a beautiful song. French artist Systaime (aka Michael B) takes the video and runs it through a bunch of compression, datamoshing it so you can feel the heat. Watch the original here, andshine bright like diamonds.
