Posting a great track from a the newest album The Presets released back in September called Pacifica. I’ve yet to fully listen to this album, I will have to do so now! I miss Australian electro, and I definitely find that The Presets is one of the duos that help define that genre of music. I love how clean Promises is, and like it just as much as the remixes. The Lifelike remix adds a nice baseline to the track, a small touch that gives it a bit more of a retro feel to the song which I’m all for. The Plastic Plates changes the track quite a bit, altering the beat completely. It’s a great listen, I actually really enjoyed the Plastic Plates remix.
The Presets – Promises
Alright. I hope you have your plans set for Halloween, best costume wins a prize. The post later tonight will explain why I was hesitant about this post, BUT I made this earlier this week so I just followed through. You’ll understand. All dirty tracks tonight! Possibly for you to play at the party? They’re tracks from the Doom and Hoodrat Bang Gang mixtape. First track is the Boys Noize remix of Depeche Mode. I totally heard this original track at the Cafe, more Depeche Mode please. Boys Noize of course, dirtiness is expected! Second track was a bit unexpected, the Digitalism remix of Depeche Mode. Somewhat more dirty, I totally didn’t expect that from Digitalism. Depeche Mode has my heart today. While we’re in the 80’s mood, the Cut Copy completely retro sounding remix of The Presets. I think I just posted four of my favorite electro peeps so enjoy it. I have too many favorites.
Futureflashs is out with a new mix, Space Rock Vol. 2. I love his mixes because they always have tracks which I’ve never heard of before, usually ones I can’t even find. It kind of makes me said as a mainly electro music blogger. This hour long mix has 31 tracks which I think I’ve only posted two tracks; the Soulwax and Phrenzy remixes. Very euro club and very dirty mix this time from Futureflashs, completely different from his Future Disco mixes. It was hard to choose three, but don’t worry, I might post some other tracks from this mix later on outside of this post cause I just can’t get enough of them.
I included three tracks from the mix, first the Malente remix of Foals. Who would’ve thought that this track could sound so dirty. Next, is the oh so famous Herve with Plastic Little and the Armand Van Helden remix. This track doesn’t really need any introduction, very underground grunge house if that’s even a proper description. I make these genres up in my head as I listen to the track so sometimes they’re completely warped. And lastly, the Jence remix of The Presets which is pure electro, let’s hear more from Jence. I’ll be posting some other tracks from the mix really depending on how many free post slots I’ve got next week. Also, hopefully Futureflashs doesn’t mind that I’m posting tracks from the mix, sometimes DJs are very particular about that. But he’s been cool in the past.

Most attractive picture ever. So when I first saw the Miami Horror remix of The Presets, I thought I already posted it. No, that was the Lifelike remix, so here it is! Let’s just saw Miami Horror and Lifelike are practically opposites, at least when it came to this track. This version is so much dirtier, you got to love it. Second is the Minitel Rose remix of The Kinks. What the hell, The Kinks? Yes please. Pretty much French House or at least what that genre has become now. And lastly the Supermayer remix of Hot Chip. Kind of a chill-out track. Opps, and Happy Forth of July.
Last part of the Van She Tech remixes of Klaxons, Dragonette, Feist, The Presets, NYPC, and Teenager. Great sound to the remixes, especially Feist’s 1,2,3,4 which is also in my top 10 for 2007. I also like their remix of Dragonette. I could listen to these all day! Keep it up you two, and listen to it all. Recommended!
You better be dancing, cause here’s some upbeat tracks! I decided to compensate for the less dancy tracks from the last post, even though they were. And yes, I’ll find pictures other than those from lastnightsparty, I’ve just been incredibly lazy trying to find pictures lately. Whatever, she’s kind of dancing, it’s related. Today I have three amazing tracks for you! First, and probably my favorite in this set, is the Lifelike remix of The Presets. Ohh so upbeat! The second remix is LAZRTAG‘s remix of Timbaland. I think I’ve heard LAZRTAG before, they did a remix of Crystal Castles I think. Should check both them and Lifelike out for sure. And I just had to include another Yuksek remix of M83. They’re all very electro feel, so I hope you enjoy it.
