Can’t Miss Mix

2 Jun

Everyone knows the track, but no one remixed it in the 30 years since it’s come out. It’s Blondie’s “Call Me”. Could you really ask for anything more? [I got it from SquittyBubbler]

Then, homeboy The Very Best, name Esau Mwamwaya, puts his spin on one of the tracks of the year, “Ambling Alp”. [I got it from Hellovegetables]

Blown Out

26 May

A few quick hitters for right now.

The BIG news today is the availability of the re/mixtape collaboration between DJ reggae duo Major Lazer and British synth-pop act La Roux. It’s called Lazerproof and it’s chock full of jams. I particularly enjoy “Bulletproof” and “Keep it Fascinating”. You can download it from Mad Decent, just cough up your name, email and zip code. But their server crashed due to demand. It’s also available on Mediafire, but I’d encourage going through Mad Decent. Either way it’s free.

Here’s a burner I heard late last night. It’s a completely transformed track by The Acorn called “Restoration”.The original is folky and filled with plum acoustic guitar. But this Four Tet remix of it is totally chilled out and shimmery. [I got it from MOKB]

The Drums are a favorite upcoming band of mine. They’ve got their self-titled debut coming out in a few weeks. So in lieue of that, they released a track off that album. Then Saint Etienne remixed it. It sounds like pure ’80s production value. That’s a good thing. [I got it from Quick Before It Melts]
