"Smells Like Teen Spirit"
This time on one song: Mosquitos and libidos. That’s right, Diallo and LUXXURY are off on a sonic adventure with Nirvana’s 1991 grunge rock juggernaut, Smells Like Teen Spirit. Hear why Diallo thinks it’s one of the most important songs in pop culture, and strap in for some rarely heard Kurt Cobain vocal stems. There’s also a lot of talk about blap-um-blap-um drum patterns.
Diallo and LUXXURY are joined this week by comedian and friend of the pod, Punkie Johnson. Together, they go on a quest to flip it and reverse it and unpack the many layers of samples and interpolations that went into Missy Elliott’s 2002 banger, Work It. Come for the badonkadonk, stay for the obscure Paul Simon sample.
This time on One Song, Diallo and LUXXURY are taking a long hard look at Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” and asking the questions that really matter: Is washing your face and hands a superstition or just good hygiene? What’s a clavinet? And, crucially, what does LUXXURY mean by “Stevie slop”?
This week on one song we’re talking all things joo joo eyeball, walrus gumboot, and monkey finger — That’s right, Diallo and LUXXURY are peering into The Beatles word salad masterpiece, Come Together. Come for John Lennon’s breathtaking isolated vocal stems, stay for LUXXRY’s hot takes on Ringo Starr’s drumming skills.
The Music That Made Us
This time on One Song we’re flipping the script and doing something different: LUXXURY and Diallo will be sharing the songs that changed the way that they listen to music. So come along for the ride and hear about the song that convinced Diallo that he was no longer young, and one that still brings LUXXURY to tears.
On each episode of ONE SONG, friends Diallo Riddle ( Emmy-nominated star and creator of HBO Max’s South Side and IFC’s Sherman’s Showcase) and Blake "LUXXURY" Robin (Music Producer & TikTok creator) will hilariously break down ONE SONG from the pop music canon that you know - or need to know - but have never heard quite like this.
