AC x P du P

11 Jun

It’s been a few days, I’m sorting some stuff out with interning and finally got it finalized. So here I am back with another remix. Found on Pitchfork, of course, it is Animal Collective. But it’s a glittery remix of the already shimmering Pantha du Prince track “Welt am Draht”

Two Current Mixes

2 Jun

Here are two remixes that are pretty out there and came out today.

Four Tet is usually good at mixing other people’s shit, but he also has his stuff remixed on a regular basis too. This time it’d Dan Snaith of Caribou that took his hand at remixing one of my favorite tracks off There is Love In You “Angel Echoes”. [I got it from GvB]

“Angel Echoes” (Caribou Remix)

Then there’s the throwback courtesy of Thurston Moore. You know Thurston. From Sonic Youth remember? Even twenty years removed from the glory days of Sonic Youth, he’s still got his hand in the cookie jar. He remixes the current electro track “Celestica” from Crystal Castles. [I got it from P4K]

“Celestica” (Thurston Moore Remix)

Metric System

31 May

We all love Emily Haines of Metric. She’s a talented musician and beautiful to boot. So, let’s listen to some remixes of one of Metric’s tracks remixed.

Two of these are the same track remixed differently, “Help, I’m Alive” redone by 80Kidz and The Twelves. [I got them from Sheenabeaston & Comfortradio]

“Help, I’m Alive” (80Kidz Remix)
“Help, I’m Alive” (The Twelves Remix)

Then there’s the MSTRKRFT remix of “Monster Hospital” which is absolute fire. And who remembers Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park? I do. Well, he also did a remix of “Gold Guns Girls” [I got them from Sheenabeaston. She really likes Metric]

Blackout Bruises

29 May

Some sped up, some slowed down is the story here. We’ve got three distinctly different remixes. The Miike Snow “Black & Blue” one has that dancified attitude and extra bouncy rhythm. Ra Ra Riot ‘s “Too Too Too Fast” gets the introvert treatment here as the Say Hi remix tones it down a little. And, well, “Sabotage” is given the bombastic bass treatment free of charge as not too much changes, but enough to move your feet. [I got them from Hejven, All Things Go and LFTF]

Daily Dosage of Dope

28 May

Kid Cudi does some dope remixes. He took recent track “Dance Yrself Clean” from LCD Soundsystem and used the beat to rap over with his buddy Chip da Ripper. Oh, and Christian Bale’s in the intro too. [I got it from Sunset in The Rear View]

“All Talk”

Here’s another remix featuring a new LCD track. This time it’s “Drunk Girls” remixed by Holy Ghost!. Definitely more dance hall inspired and up beat even through it slows down the lyrics. [I got it from Dailybeatz]

“Drunk Girls” (Holy Ghost! Remix)

Cut Copy is a pretty great electro synthpop duo and Hercules and Love Affair make some quality nu-disco tunes. So let’s mix the two together and make a downright glittery, shimmery remix. [I got it from Red Threat]

“Far Away” (Hercules and Love Affair Remix)

Antlernative

28 May

Here are some current alternative groups that did some remixing and getting remixed recently.

I’m a professed obsessor of The Antlers. I thought Hospice was one of the three best releases last year. It’s so raw and emotional. Darby Cicci of the band remixed a track of another skilled indie band, Freelance Whales. And DJ duo Buffetlibre, who have done quite a few remixes reduxed the albums best track, “Two”, and somehow made it better. [I got them from The Tripwire and SoundsXP]

“Killer Whales” (Darby Cicci of The Antlers Remix)
“Two” (Buffetlibre Remix)

Local Natives album Gorilla Manor is a lesson in laid back. This gurgling remix of “Wide Eyes” comes to us through Suckers, who have an album coming out June 8th. [I got it from PMA]

“Wide Eyes” (Suckers Remix)

The Big Pink came into 2010 pretty hot off the success of A Brief History of Love and they just put out a free EP that features this oOoOO remix of their track “Tonight”. [I got it from MOKB]

“Tonight” (oOoOO Remix)

Pop & Hop

28 May


While The Killers may have lost Brandon Flowers to a solo career, here’s an old remix to keep their pop danceability alive. Armin Van Buuren…you already know is one of the most storied techno DJs of our time. So you can’t go wrong. [I got it from R2N]

“Human” (Armin Van Buuren Club Remix)

Rihanna’s ripe for remix as well. Her most recent single “Rude Boy” is chopped up and thrown in the dubstep machine to get a little bit wonkier. [I got it from The Noise Collective]

“Rude Boy” (CHRISPY REMIX)

Here are some remixes I came across while browsing a random blog yesterday. Needless to say, I’ll be frequenting it from now on as these were essentially throwaway mixes of Lupe Fiasco’s “Fighters” and Clipse’s “Virginia”. [I got it from Squeegie Sounds]
