Stepping Out

As a bunch of you'll know, Blogger's been behaving in a less-than-great manner recently, so no content yesterday. It was gonna be a 'Why Am I an MP3 Blogger" soul-searcher of post (one that I've decided to postpone), so consider yourself spared.

Sweet Female Attitude - Flowers

Before Three of a Kind's "Babycakes" (which the blogosphere's oldskool garage-hedz [Spizz's Rob Dem excepted, I believe] puzzlingly didn't find all that terrific), "Flowers" was the Hallmark of sickeningly sweet 2step. It's guaranteed to either put a spring in your step or make you regret every action that has led to your current condition of crippling loneliness.

MJ Cole feat. Elephant Man - Zoom Zoom

Too impossibly bouncy to frame as the yang to Flowers yin, but the cool reverso synth-harpsicord and spooky synth washes (think I stole that description straight off Harvell) make this a slightly darker, slinkier affair. My question to you: was this the lone raggarage crossover track? (Another question: since this doesn't really count as raggarage, was there *ever* a raggarage track?) (Yet more: How annoying is it that I'm this proud of having coined "raggarage"?)
