Don’t forget to have a listen to all the music being made with auto-tuned crying babies too.
I prefer not to listen to Justin Bieber, thank you.
Not to mention some early 90′s bleep and bass from The Scientist, sampling a baby burbling away, sneezing, then crying. Baby starts at 1.20: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9caT4zuaZ8
Major Lazer used this on an album like 3 years ago.
The Birth of the Borg.
Like I’m going to voluntarily click on a link I *know* will subject me to crying babies.
And I say that as a loving mother.
The story behind this recording is actually fairly fascinating – it was made in the Ivory Coast (or possibly Angola or Ghana, version conflict!) half a decade ago, and became rather popular accross Africa before being appropriated by the likes of Diplo above.
