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]

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]

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]
