I finally got a chance to go through my inbox, have a couple tracks I really liked for you guys which will probably bleed into the next couple posts. Starting off with the Chew Fu remix of Robyn Dancing On My Own, finally something that’s electro/dance and not club. I’ve been posting too much club lately. It’s a great mix with Robyn as well, her stuff is usually the first thing people will go to remix, not a bad thing although it comes off that way doesn’t it. Second track is a bit lighter, the Tame Impala cover of Midnight Juggernauts’ new single Vital Signs; both of which you should totally check out. Both Aussies which is a scene I’ve unknowingly ignored for the last year. Tame Impala has some interesting tracks, you should check out this video a friend forwarded to me a couple days ago of their song Solitude Is Bliss; cool video. Also, Midnight Juggernaut’s new album The Crystal Axis due for May 28th, I still know nothing about it. Great cover though, here’s the original if you’re curious. A little high video. And lastly, the Buffetlibre remix of Plushgun Mixtape. The original is actually part of their PEACE project if you missed that with my last post about them.
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.
So this is actually the first guest post on this blog from Cassette Culture. His mixtape is based on remixes of Australian electro-pop artists, something which I’ve definitely been ignoring lately. Thanks for the guest post.
Now if anybody actually said “Psychedelic Australian Electro-Pop” to me vocally I think I’d recoil in horror, but apart from actually listening to the music I’m about to talk about, it’s probably the best way to describe it.
Over the last few months there’s been a burst of activity from these bands that seem to be, for the large part, based in Sydney or Melbourne. Excitingly for us, these guys have all started remixing each other’s stuff. Double the fun.
Here’s a couple of tracks from the front runners of this Australian revolution – Cut Copy and Ladyhawke. Midnight Juggernauts have produced a slightly less dancefloor friendly, more psychedelic remix of Cut Copy’s “Hearts on Fire” whilst Van She Tech have transformed Ladyhawke’s Van Halen esque “Back of the Van” into an infectious dancefloor pounder. Enjoy yourselves.
Sorry guys, I’ve been preparing a new-old series so I haven’t really had the time to search around for new tracks. Though I’m not sure when the next post will be, hopefully tomorrow. First track is the Distort remix of Keedz. Actually love this track and it really matches today’s theme of ‘chill out’ slower music. Second track I included is the XXXChange remix of Santogold. One of the slower ones, definitely loving the track. And lastly, the Chateau Marmont remix of Midnight Juggernauts from discodust. Actually, there’s a couple new remixes of Midnight Juggernauts that have come out recently for their single “Into The Galaxy” out on August 11th, so definitely check those out. Expect a series soon. So long, and thanks for all the music bloggers.
That looks like a TERRIBLE mojito. So, here are three remixes I loved this week. There seems to be a lot of covers coming out lately which I like, I’ll have to look into those as well. But for now, remixes. I was thinking of saving the Noel Zancanella remix of Casxio for myself, I usually keep the more unique tracks I like so I can one day include it in a mix. A lighter track with a completely 80’s or even 70’s feel to it. A combination of sounds that definitely work. It’s kind of two tracks, listen to it all the way though cause the kind of postlude is also pretty cool. Second, Cut Copy never fails to impress me. Their remix of Midnight Juggernauts is fantastic even though remixes of this band has been repeatedly done. Yet they manage to make it great anyways. It’s a bit of a lighter track like the first one. And completely on a tangent, the TEPR remix of Martin Solveig. I haven’t posted any of Martin Solveig yet, so here’s my first track from him. Great track, clubbier than the other ones.
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)
Give it up for Miami Horror! Not the first time I’ve posted them, but I guess I just became more interested in them. Expect an excited post dedicated to them tomorrow. Their great remix of Datarock. It’s very Miami Horror anyways, that’s the only way I can explain it. Second is the Cut Copy remix of Mercy Arms. Similar sound, electro anyways. A bit of a dirtier track, DIM remix of Midnight Juggernauts.
