I wanna be where you are

On such a cold & snowy day only one thing can warm me, and that’s being in touch with myself and not being lost in the world, in thoughts, ideas and other not-real imaginative things.

YUM YUM Top 50 Tunes 2010

just in time for our huuuuge YUM YUM new years eve party, here are the selected 50 top tunes of 2010. i know we ignored a whole bunch of tunes, that we especially as YUM YUM or chromemusic helped make big in our lands or even make it to the peak positions. remember our buddy Stromae?, Ben L’oncle Soul? or that song about the italian that doesnt speak any american-english lol, and many more… but seriously its not like i can bear hearing any of these tunes anymore. the old media has just being overfeeding us with our very own stuff. so here is a list of tunes that we played in 2010, some like mayer hawthorne were even released in 09, but that didnt stop us from coining these tunes in 2010 and thats why they belong here (its just very few exceptions anways). Some mellow, some soulful, some exstatic and some simply beautiful. pretty much what makes up YUM YUM. we had & have an amazing time playing these. thx to all and everyone for making YUM YUM what it is, namely.. one love

ps. the YUM YUM Dj Top tunes coming next week. All our djs showcasing their very favourite tunes of 2010.

Duffy – well,well,well

Nice one ! In der Vergangenheit hatte Questlove bereits den Track “Mercy” von Duffy geremixt. Nun folgt eine  Kollaboration von Duffy und The Roots, die ein Ergebnis bringt, dass sich hören lässt wie ich finde .
