reviving old thread but I was listening to the new version w/o the first verse and thought I recognised the weird vocal thing at the beginning and it turns out.. i was right. Go to 15:23 in the A. G. Cook live @ Power Lunches part 1 and you'll see this is the version he played in the set. This may be passed off as just an alternate version that he decided to use but the vocals at the beginning confirm that this is ripped from the audio he used for his set.. which raises a couple questions. Who leaked it? Was it A.G. or a friend? Was the set audio, at some point in time, publicly available? It would be amazing if we found the audio for the whole set, I would love to get a HQ version of Aquarius with the short rap part by Danny (5:51), among other things. Also ¬ if you remember anything from the tumblr post(s) that'd be awesome!
also also unrelated but the dude at 5:01 looks like Danny, probably is him as it's his song and he's seen like that in Meal for 2 (Raving Kru) live @ XOYO
I asked him in person in nyc if there were studio versions of songs in the set but he said there's something cool and rare about keeping as a YouTube video
yeah that makes sense, what with all the content he's taken down, or half taken down (with it still being accessible with a bit of digging). maybe hes into that sort of mystery surrounding his work. kinda annoying but i get it
i might ask him about the songs he used. I especially loved the one that goes "SING LIKE A POPSTAAAAR" but im pretty sure it isnt an existing song because at the beginning you can just make out the vocalist saying "hey alex cook" or something
