Well, completely random tracks from last week. I was hoping to post them way earlier but things got in the way, alas here they are! I love anything Danger related, his music is amazing and totally brings me back to French electro house. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and listen to his EPs. Only complaint I have about Danger is GIMME MORE TRACKS TO LISTEN TO!!! Great rendition of the track by Wolf Saga, although I can’t seem to pinpoint what other track is sampled for the remix, for some reason I want to say something M83. Second up, the Ryan Hemsworth remix of Grimes Genesis. Listen to the original track and you’ll quickly figure out how much exactly Ryan Hemsworth changed, not really even the same track, and I’m really loving the remix. Lastly, I had to include it, Shades of Funk by Kill Paris. I think the track title explains it.
Well, these weren’t hard to find and the whole year I didn’t post these guys once which they dominated the years before, strangely they got a remix in last minute this year. Just in time for those year end lists! First off is the Soulwax remix of Late of the Pier Best in the Class. Although I’m still biased towards their huge remix of The Chemical Brothers, similar sounds as their other remixes, but god damn it’s great to hear another remix coming from Soulwax. I thought they gave up one them. Unfortunately this was in a single, but 70 cents isn’t terrible for a track right?! Second is the Danger remix of Nero, sounding a bit different as in more rock heavy and clean, but I’m definitely digging the track. It’s downloadable through official.fm, the link provided. I’m used to a more sinister feel from their tracks, he’s got some awesome EPs if you haven’t gotten it already. And lastly, the Clockwork remix of Para One! I’m ashamed to say I didn’t even know Para One had an album, thought he mainly produced remixes. Great tracks, now to work on that Top list for the end of the year!
Nero – Me and You (Danger Remix) (password: nero10)
How did I ever miss this Danger remix? Somehow I did. As any Danger track, this one of Midnight Juggernauts sounds like it should be in some 90’s show like MacGuyver. Some intuitive thinking to get out of a sticky situation with this playing in the background as MacGuyver manages to fix the hole in the engine with a pen and an egg. I’m pretty sure I’ve used this description before. Anyways, I’m always very excited about anything from Danger. Second is two decades early, very 70’s sounding blend by Immuzikation of Chromeo‘s Call Me Up and Skyy’s Call Me. What a great combination, though don’t get any ideas on that 70’s guitar riff. And lastly, the Jake Troth remix of Kanye‘s new track. I promise this will be one of the last I post, I feel bad having posted about him three posts in a row. Really liked this remix though, adds the perfect touches from turning the track from a somewhat slow monotone to a dance track. Also seems as though Kanye has released either a remastered or a 2nd remastered version of the track? The one I posted wasn’t? Anyways, you can investigate cause I’m not posting it again.
Have three tracks and a bonus today. A guilty pleasure of mine CSS remixed by Midnight Juggernauts. Can’t get any better of a combination than that. And it’s not the quality of the file, I think the track actually has that muffled sound. Second is the MMMatthias remix of Ratatat. Love the MMMatthias sound, very Euro which makes sense. And last off, straight from UK, the Fake Blood remix of Little Boots. Similar themed sound tracks today; very Euro-esque sounding tracks. The bonus includes my favorite remixer Danger with the remix of SymbolOne. I just can’t get enough of that “80’s action TV show” sound, I guess thus the tag on the song. Check out Danger’s myspace for more details on the track.
SymbolOne – Love Juice (Danger TV Remix) (Radio Rip)
Almost forgot to post today! Got Danger remix of We Are Scientists. Love the 90’s tv show soundtrack sounds they include in all their tracks. Danger is getting up there in one of my favorite electro remixers. Second is Justice with their new remix of MGMT. It’s very ‘Justice’ if that means anything, kind of grungy electro. Let me remind you it’s a radio rip. Lastly to set the summertime mood, Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith. Now that’s oldschool. Get in the summer groove.
I think Danger is my new favorite electro remixer. Though they’re not releasing very quickly, so there’s only a couple tracks I can possibly show you. Here’s their remix of Estelle‘s American Boy featuring Kanye West. I absolutely love it. It’s so retro sounding with a mixture of French house, it gave me shivers of joy. I also included a sample of the Danger remix of Sebastien Tellier‘s Divine. There’s also TEPR‘s remix of The Teenagers and Foamo‘s remix of Primary 1 which are a bit more club.
