Mr Hudson, Kanye West, Supernova and my ability to spot a great song.
Can I pick a hit or what? The other day I posted up a video by a band called Mr Hudson & The Library. I heard the song as one of those "recommended tracks" on iTunes Genius. I must have listened to 50 or more track samples that day, most of which I ignored, but that one was different so I got the album and posted up the video here.
Later that day, I'm listening to the radio and totally by coincidence Ben from Mr Hudson is on Trevor Nelson's show, apparently Kanye West liked the stuff he'd done and invited him to work on some other projects in Hawaii, and appears on his new single, which is of course awesome. Glad to know that I have as good an ear as Kanye ;)
Here's the song. Not sure how long it'll stay up as there's a download link in the description, but search for it if it's not here. Facebook/RSS readers can go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb0FTXLGADQ
