* The inspiration for this week’s lyrical heading.

The show: DatA. Auto-Tune.

We haven’t figured out if he is officially DatA or datA or DaTa or Data or dAtA. Usually this mixed-case fetish would ring alarm bells and play havoc with our nerdy iTunes naming conventions but David Guillon has just released the funnest, guilty pleasure of an electro album for 2009 in the form of “Skywriter”.

Maybe the sugar rush will wear off but loved it so much had to play three tracks on the show today. Love the wailing guitars and emo sentiments (“Rapture”), vocoders (“So much in love”), and even more wailing guitars and synth stabs (“Renaissance Theme”).

Can’t believe we made it through that last paragraph without once mentioning Alan Braxe, Fred Falke or Justice.

More info about DatA at:

Possibly the weirdest and most disturbing track we played on the show today was “Baako” by DJ Champion. The track features heavy use of a sample of a baby crying – run through Auto-Tune software.

Jace Clayton recently wrote about the Auto-Tune phenomenon in “Pitch Perfect” in Frieze magazine. Auto-Tune first gained mainstream fame/infamy with Cher’s 1998 single “Believe”. North African musicians have embraced it for the last decade to bizarre effect. Many music critics now blame it for the world’s social ills. But Jace Clayton argues a really good “defence” for its use – it’s just another technology that can be used well or misused. James Marcus also covers the issue nicely in his House of Mirth blog.

Still doesn’t beat the fun and silliness of an old school vocoder though.
