planet rock

There’s something to be said for senselessly repeated phrases in American club music and while I can’t exactly back it up with a cultural studies lexicon of terms and theories, I can say that it has become one of the defining features of the Baltimore, New Orleans Jersey and Chicago sounds. On it’s own, a repeated Big Sean line is annoying to the point of inflicting self-harm, but in the context of DJ Kiff’s remix of Planet Rock’s “Sarah Palin” it takes on new, hypnotizing function. Vocal repetition might not offer any deeper meaning into life, but it often makes for damn effective dance music. Stream Kiff’s remix below and cop a free download here.
