This week, I’ve been kind of obsessed with listening to 45rpm singles at 33rpm, so here’s a whole hour of it.
A few things happen when you do this to a record. The bass frequencies become even lower. High-pitched voices can become surprisingly rich. And even some Top-40 artist like Samantha Fox can take on a whole new dopeness.
After a while your ear tunes itself to this style and then when you hear normal music it all sounds like a bunch of sped-up Mickey Mouse bullshit.
I tried to pick tracks that would be appropriate for this mix. It was tempting to do a spindown every time a singer uttered a phrase like “slow down,” but I’m pleased to say I gave in to this temptation every time.
