Dayve Hawk & Nas

8 Jun

Dayve Hawk of Memory Tapes is good and putting remixes together. Following Thurston Moore’s remix of “Celestica” Hawk takes his turn at remixing one of my favorite tracks off the new album, “Suffocation”. [I got it from stereogum]

“Suffocation” (Memory Tapes Remix)

Nas is one of the best rappers currently alive whether you want to admit it or not. And while this is one of his more annoying tracks, it’s still damn good. [I got it from JLM]

“I Can” (9th Wonder Remix)

I love chillwave and everything it has to offer. So I pretty much love Chaz Bundick aka Toro Y Moi. In light of dedicating a post to Zomby, I’ll dedicate this one to Toro. He doesn’t have too many remixes, but what he’s got are pretty solid.

Here’s a Toro remix of The Longcut’s “Repeated”. He added enough synth to make one question what they’re hearing and it blooms nicely. The “repeating” beat is infectious and glowing. [I got it from RCRD LBL]

“Repeated” (Toro Y Moi Remix) [d/l]

Toro completely reduxed this track “At A Glance”  by Body Language as they remixed a track of his, also located below. Toro’s version is absorbing and foggy, just like most of his other stuff. I really like this redo as it reminds me of a great summer’s day. [I got it from Golden Bloggen and GvB]

“Timed Pleasure” (Body Language Remix)

An album full of remixes of one track, Tegan and Sara’s “Alligator” got remixed so many times it’s hard to keep track. But here’s Toro’s Caribbean-esque interpretation. [I got it from PMA]

“Alligator” (Toro Y Moi Remix)

And as if it wasn’t chill enough, Bundick remixes his buddy Ernest Greene’s (Washed Out) break out track “Feel It All Around”. It’s a little drowsier, slower and gooier than the original. [I got it from Citizen Dick]

“Feel It All Around” (Toro Y Moi Remix)

And for good measure here’s Bundick’s most recent single “Leave Everywhere”. It’s a little less chill than his other material, but that’s not necessarily bad. [I got it from MOKB]
