This Mashup Of Miles Davis And LCD Soundsystem Is Honestly Perfect

first_imgSometimes, two pieces of music were just meant to be one. That is the case for LCD Soundsystem’s “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” and Miles Davis’ soundtrack to the 1958 film, Ascenseur Pour l’Échafaud. One clever YouTube user mashed up the two tracks, amazingly combining the two pieces of music by simply playing them at the same time.With no editing tricks whatsoever, it’s remarkable how Davis’ improvised trumpet lines fit in with the brooding LCD Soundsystem ballad. It forces the listener to ask themselves, “gee, why doesn’t LCD Soundsystem have a trumpet player?” If James Murphy decides to add one for their performances next summer (they have one booked thusfar), you’ll know where he got the idea.Enjoy this beautiful Miles Davis and LCD Soundsystem mashup video below.last_img
