THROWBACK TUNES: GET IT UP WITH MIA + SANTIGOLD
The last few weeks have been a bit much to say the least. Orwellian bitchassness is running rampant in D.C., there's a new reason to protest every day and Stranger Things won't be back until October. Combine that with your normal life struggle and it's no wonder everyone's energy is off. To get your vibes on track, we're throwing it back to a classic from our party days.
Unless you were crawling the internet for fresh music in the early 2000's, "Get it Up" was not on your radar. The Santigold track featuring M.I.A. and Gorilla Zoe, was a standout from 2008's Top Ranking: A Diplo Dub. With its contagious beat, peak Santi & M.I.A., and the sample of Zoe's "Hood N***a", "Get It Up" burned up the blogs when it leaked. In fact, I'm 99% sure I covered this track on a blog or two back in 2008.
Crack open a PBR, pull on a pair of neon American Apparel leggings and get your energy aligned with my two fave girls from my Urban Outfitters days.
