Lullabye-tronic DJ Mayonnaise MP3

With its sing-songy beats and layers of simple sampled percussion, “Easily Distracted” by DJ Mayonnaise (aka Chris Greer), off his Still Alive collection from last year, is a perfect example of the space where instrumental hip-hop and bedroom electronica meet up and make beautiful lullabyes together. The tone is all early Aphex Twin, thanks to a fuzzy automaton foundation and a melody consisting of held notes that quaver more than they sing (MP3). Still Alive was released quietly last July on the Anticon label. More details, and MP3s, at djmayonnaise.com, including a decade-old mixtape titled I’m Not a Turntablist.
