This is an old one, but I only just discovered it this summer. It’s the opening track from Cornelius’ 1998 debut, Fantasma, and it features one of the most beautiful transitions from something as simple as the repeated phrase “ah ah ah ah… mic check” into a full-fledged FlyLo-style instrumental hip-hop melody, complete with the flourishing beeps and whirs signature to Cornelius’ unique style. The video fits the track really well, and it’s all-around just an immensely pleasurable experience:
