Some administrative stuff to start off this great week, great for a Monday right? Contact method is different now for anyone still emailing me at my old email, that email will no longer work. I was receiving upwards to 50-100 emails a day, at least half of them was spam. Now there’s a nice contact form you can use here. A little more steps to contacting me, but this ensures that I will actually read your email now unless bots figure that out too and spam me to hell again! If you are looking to request content removal or apply to write for Sundtrak, remember to select the contact type in the dropdown.
Also, the music player should now work on your iPhones and iPads because Adobe is being a bitch and removing flash support to everything. Whatever, they probably see it as outdated technology too. However, the player doesn’t seem to work on mobile Firefox without flash. You’ll have to live without for now. The HTML5 player also doesn’t automatically start the next track when it is finished, that will be a work in progress until later.
Now for the music! Starting off with the Viceroy remix of Amtrac‘s Those Days. Great upbeat track with a hint of the 90’s, thank you Viceroy for that, you can hear the original here. Second is the Classixx remix of Passion Pit Take A Walk which has that baseline I love. I can’t even explain why I like the sound so much. And lastly, the Photek remix of Lana Del Rey Ride, a track from her newest album (or EP, whatever) Paradise. I’m a sucker for remixes of her tracks as they turn them upbeat, and you have to admit her voice is magical with a great beat behind it. If you haven’t noticed already, the links are becoming more and more from Soundcloud. That’s not me getting lazy, but it’s the best way for me to support artists and because Soundcloud is such an amazingly music distribution platform, typically they provide a download link with the track. So if you like what you hear, visit the artist’s pages and the Soundcloud links!
Six more weeks of winter for us. Alright, no more Katy Perry for a while. But you know what? I bet after you heard those tracks you loved it and you were like “FUCK SUNDTRAK!” Ya, put on that tough front, I know you’re listening to Katy Perry right now. First track today is the Le Matos remix of Coeur De Pirate, as Canadian as you can get, both are out of Montreal. Listen to the original and you’ll be quite a bit more amazed at what Le Matos did. Kind of reminds me of Moulinex except toned down a notch. Points at Filles Sourires, merci. In a similar sounding genre, the Classixx remix of BeNi, never heard of either but I’m curious now. It’s definitely got that 80’s slightly new wave sound to it. I’m pretty sure this is the BeNi Japanese pop singer from my attempted Google search and not DJ Beni who’s part of Riots in Belgium. And lastly, another remix of the Moulinex & Xinobi track Discotexas Theme this time by Esto!
