Drake has just dropped another video and now you can Watch Drake's "Hotline Bling" ($FREE) on Muted. In a recent interview with Fader he said the song is based on the concept of taking a single beat from a popular song, in this case, D.R.A.M.s "Cha Cha", and putting his spin on it. This is the "modern-rap equivalent to a dancehall artist recording their spin on a hot riddim."But the question is, how does this sort of sampling sit with the original artist? The latest tweet from D.R.A.M suggests, not very well.
Yeah, I feel I got jacked for my record...But I’m GOOD.— D.R.A.M. not DRAM (@ONLY1DRAM) October 20, 2015

The Gerês House By Carvalho Araújo ($NFS) reminds me of works by Frank Lloyd Wright, particularly Falling Water http://www.fallingwater.org/ located in Pennsylvania. The Gerês House is located in Minho, Portugal and was completed in 2015. It sits on a steep slope just above a stream. The small home that was previously at the location was demolished and its location moved due to continual small landslides. Just like Falling Waters, the new structure relates beautifully to the surrounding property.The interior features a large living area that overlooks the property and the stream below and features a terrace, that takes further advantage of these elements. The kitchen is on the same floor with the mezzanine and bedrooms located on the lower level.
