DITC Bonus: Dwele ‘Startin Somethin’

dwele_piano.jpg

Dwele's interpolation of "Wanna Be Startin' Something" wipes the floor with Akon's remake for Thriller 25. I just thought I'd put that out there. Then again, the sound of tires screeching and felines copulating has more artistic integrity and aural appeal than Akon.

Thank You.

  1. Usually Dwele's style after awhile can seem so downtempo and a bit tooooo sloooooow that it just makes me want to fall asleep, but it is for this reason that this track totally works. It's nice to see/hear something of Michael's that doesn't evoke any automatic knee-jerk response.

  2. What the hell is the point of this !?! Just repeating the chorus over an 808, some finger snaps, and a Rhodes piano !? The music business is in the toilet when shit like this gets released!!!

  3. I'm not real excited by this.

  4. Dwele delivers on a much more soulful tip than Akon and I could put that on replay but...that track as originally done by MJ should just be left alone.

  5. This works for Dwele! not so much for Akon.

  6. DONT FORGET THE NOMINATION
    08' GRAMMY's

    ARTIST : DWELE
    ALBUM: INTERPRETATION OF EARTH,WIND & FIRE
    SONG" THATS THE WAY OF THE WORLD

  7. I am a huge Dwele fan, but this track is just OK to me. I think the stuff he's done with Roy Hargrove is the best combination of his soul/jazz chops captured on recordings. However, it does run CIRCLES around that crap with Akon.

  8. I LOVE-LOVE Dwele, for real he's a fav of mind, but this is BORING as hell.

  9. It is all good; I love DWELE and anything that I hear from him makes me feel good. His voice is so sexy against the sound of the music.

  10. This is fly! Dwele can do no wrong IMO.

  11. The vocals on this one sound a lot like the one's on Down Jimmy from the Rize cd... I always like to hear things that artist play around with..

  12. Is an artist not allowed to experiment...?
    Gwaaan Dwele! u da undisputed king of vybe-filled mellow!!
