This is your weekend update. First is a new remix by LA Riots of The Ting Tings which is downloadable at RCRD LBL, I have the link below. I haven’t really touched on LA Riots for a while now, really started to miss them. It’s just what the track needed, a little bit of dirty electro. The next two remixes are done by the same guys called Aeroplane, a duo based in Belgium. I’m completely sure how to describe the track, they’re kind of groove of psychedelic as their Myspace so eloquently describes it. Their remixes of MGMT and Cut Copy.
The Ting Tings – That’s Not My Name (LA Riots Remix)
The final, and best in my opinion, set to LA Riots. It’s got Kylie, Chromeo, Jupter One, and Kid Sister! Never heard of Photek though, it’s good anyways. They’re fantastic remixes at that. I really like the sound LA Riots has, it’s not really dirty euro. Quite different from their city siblings Gun’N'Bombs, it’s more refined shall I say. Check it out.

I decided to do the same for the LA Riots series as I did with Van She. Same deal. Things are going to be somewhat cluttered this weekend.
Here’s a group right out of Los Angeles, California. Well, given the name. La Riots consists of Daniel Ledisko and Jo’B. Not surprisingly they’re managed by the same guy who manages MSTRKRFT, they have similar sounds. Anyways check it out, there will be a part 2 & 3 of this series, including a mixtape to finish it off. I included two remixes this time, one of Madonna and the other Le Castle Vania. Also two of their original tracks.
LA Riots never disappoints me, this short but sweet mix is amazing. Great track selections and transitions, I couldn’t ask for more.
1. Hot Chip — “Ready for the Floor (LA Riots Remix)”
2. Kavinsky — “Testarossa Autodrive (sebastiAn Remix)”
3. Justice — “DVNO (LA Riots Remix)”
4. Bonde Do Role — “Gasolina (Radioclit remix)”
5. Uffie — “Hot Chick”
6. M.I.A — “Bamboo Banga”
7. Kid Sister — “Control (LA Riots Remix)”
8. Cut Copy — “Saturdays”
9. Chromeo — “Needy Girl (Vandalism Remix)”
10. Boys Noize — “oh! (A-Trak Remix)”
11. Justice — “The Party (LA Riots Remix)”
12. Yelle — “A Cause des Garcons”
13. Tegan and Sara — “Back in Your Head (Morgan Page Remix)”
Love this remix by LA Riots vs. Villians of Hot Chip. Bring it right to 1 minute, it’s my favorite part of the song. I also really like the Tegan And Sara remix by Morgan Page. Didn’t know you could do that to Tegan And Sara, extremely impressed.
I decided to continue the series, but mostly remixes. I highly suggest you to check out Heartsrevolution for their songs, it’s unique and quite amazing. There’s actually a bunch of C.Y.O.A remixes out there which are great, but I found it refreshing to see LA Riots remix Switchblade from the IHEARTCOMIX/Scion mixtape. Personally one of my favorite songs by Heartsrevolution. I also included two of my favorite remixes of CYOA from the CYOA Remix Contest, one by Pink Enemy and the other by Lismr. I really liked both remixes, they’ve got that nice electro sound. Be sure to check em out.
Hearing this song constantly on Annie Mac’s, and well basically the only radio show I listen to. So maybe it’s not supper popular and I’m just really bias. Anyways, here’s Estelle‘s American Boy featuring Kanye West. Now as you probably know, I’m never very fond of Kanye, but he’s musically talented and that’s all that matters. And no, I won’t post the download link because Kanye is big time stuff and it’ll get taken off faster than you can say YAR! But for your convenience, you can listen to it!
I decided not to make this a lone post, so I posted two remixes as well. LA Riot‘s remix of The Toxic Avenger was pretty decent, big beats. I actually REALLY like the remix by Calvin Harris‘ of The Ting Tings, it’s slower but it sounds so good.
