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 Whatever, they probably see it as outdated technology too.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!
Like Madonna, Gwen Stefani is also a guilty pleasure of mine. First is the Jacques Lu Cont‘s Thin White Duke mix of Gwen Stefani‘s What You Waiting For. I have both the mix and dub, but I just can’t decide which one I like more. Though I really like both, you can give the mix a go. Also have the Kissy Sell Out remix of Wind It Up. It’s a bit choppy at first, but once you get into it, it gets really good. Make sure you listen to the whole thing cause I brushed it off at first as well. And lastly, the Photek remix of Cool. Love this song, they kind of made it a rock version of the song. And yes, I know that’s a picture of Gwen in No Doubt.
