I totally missed April Fools. I didn’t fool anyone nor did anyone fool me. That’s disappointing and quite anticlimactic compared to the one from 2009, unfortunately all the comments were deleted. I’ll keep something in mind for next year. I’ve been absolutely garbage at checking my email the last couple weeks, so these tracks are a result of music blog skimming. Yea, I take no credit for finding these tracks on my own except for the SposhRock remix. First off, the Fred Falke remix of Metronomy. Is there a Fred Falke remix I haven’t liked? No, greatness as usual. Relatively new SebastiAn track Embody and a new Kavinsky remix of the track. I think I’m in heaven, this totally reminds me of the good old days when I started blogging. You can check out the video for the original track here. And lastly, the SposhRock remix of Miami Horror Holidays. It’s calmer than the other ones but I like it.
Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of the rabbit, those of you who are rabbits rejoice! I actually have no idea what happens when its your year. Didn’t we all hear about The White Stripes breaking? Wait, does that mean Jack White can start his solo career? Starting off the big hit, the Miami Horror remix of Gorillaz. I really thought I posted this already, I even remember writing this description of the song, strangely enough I used the same description about another remix I posted earlier. The remix totally reminds me of the Aeroplane remix of Friendly Fires. I have to say, this may be one of my favorite remixes of this track, and yes there were that many remixes of Empire Ants that I could choose a favorite. Second is the Chew Fu remix of Kerli Army of Love. A bit more synth for you there, something a bit faster. And lastly, it seems to be a trend that’s coming along with my posts, the last track always resembling something vaguely 8-bit. No vocals, this track the Rimer London remix of Classic Brothers is great on its own.
First official post from the big T.O., I finally have internet and everything is moved in. This post is more of a chart update, I haven’t had much time to surf around or search through my inbox looking for music. I wish there was an email provider that worked like Hype, anyways, three tracks I couldn’t stop listening to this weekend and yesterday. The Punks Jump Up remix of Miami Horror Moon Theory, haven’t heard any Miami Horror lately, meaning a month or two, but time has been trudging by. Reminds me of the old sounds though, quite nice to hear resurfacing. The Millionyoung remix of Memoryhouse To The Light House, both names I can’t say I’ve ever heard of but I definitely listened to this track at least 15 times today. I just put it on repeat and never got tired of it. And lastly, another group I haven’t heard from in a while, Soulwax. They remixed quite the appropriate track Yeah, Techno! by Paul Chambers.

So today is April Fools day. For those of you who forgot, this is a great reminder before you get tricked. No April fools from me this year, I’m still getting a laugh from last years post. Alright, let’s start this hump day off with a great remix from Boss in Drama of Miami Horror Sometimes. You can watch the video here, it’s a great track. There’s a sound in the remix which I really love. It’s that one key strike synth sound. Not sure how else to explain it, but it’s throughout the track as a beat. Second is I guess more ambiance club remix coming from LightsoverLA of Miike Snow, posted their remix of Two Door Cinema Club last week. And lastly, The Dirty Disco remix of Penguin Prison The Worse It Gets.
Two of these tracks I posted similar remixes earlier this week. If I was a better blogger, I probably would’ve planned this shit out better and posted these tracks together but alas, that isn’t the case. First song is a different track, the Villains remix of Dragonette‘s Fixin to Thrill from their upcoming album of the same title. It’s such a dirty remix, so dirty yet so good. Did I just dirty talk about a track in one of my posts? At around 2 minutes there’s a great build-up, just loop around there all day. The next two tracks are more of a groovy take on the originals. The Cassian remix of Miami Horror‘s Make You Mine. There’s actually a bunch of remixes of this track including one by Treasure Fingers which I’m sure you can find somewhere. Also the Nacey remix of Wale, much slower than we’re used to.
Starting things off with The Knocks remix of Wale‘s Chillin featuring Lady Gaga. It vaguely reminds me of The Twelves and Santogold, I mean that in the best (and seemingly vaguest) way possible, kind of indie/hip hop electro. I love it. Miami Horror and Fred Falke with their usual goodness. They are joined at the hip, we need more. I know I’m saying that on the basis that they’ve only really done one collab remix and that Fred Falke is attached more to Alan Braxe, but I don’t care. I’ve never been known for my accuracy anyways. Lastly, taking a different approach in the club direction, the Sidechains remix of Blue Pearl Naked in the Rain.
Buffetlibre has released their project Rewind 2.0, which includes covers and remixes of tracks from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. I’ve posted a couple of the tracks from the project already here, here, and here. Those were well, some of my favorite ones from the project including Sidechains, Super Mal, CatComplex, Justin Faust, and Little Boots. I included three more remixes which I liked when I went through the project, great covers but I won’t include those. First track is the Miami Horror remix of Dan Hartman‘s Relight My Fire. Straight out of the late 70’s, the disco era anyways. Second is the LAZRtag remix of Michael Jackson. You kind of have to get over the intro a bit, but it’s got a good sound. And lastly, the Facteur and Dubmood remix of Kraftwerk. Not completely sure what the make of this track, it’s somewhere in the vague realm of music I post but not really. Abstract anyways, coming from Kraftwerk it shouldn’t be unexpected. Reminds me slightly of The Chemical Brothers.
