k-os.  "EXIT (Call Me)“.  Exit.  Astralwerks, 2002.

This one deserves a little context.

I heard this song for the first time on the CBC’s Richardson’s Roundup, on what Google tells me was the February 11, 2003 episode.

Ann Marie Fleming, who was the guest that day, brought along the above track and a cover of "Vive la Rose” by a creaky-voiced gentleman who’s name I’ve since forgotten Emile Benoit.

I, at nineteen years of age, fell in love with hip-hop as a result.
