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”

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)

Can’t Miss Mix

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]

Call Me Remix (Better EQ) by TheMessiahDub

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]

“Mulomo” (The Very Best Remix of “Ambling Alp”)

Roll Up, This is a Hold Up

A remix of one of the greatest lyricists in one of the greatest lyrical performances of all time? I figure most people would enjoy that. It’s the 7 Minutes of Madness Remix of “Paid in Full” by Eric B. and Rakim. [I got it from Licorice Pizza]

“Paid in Full” (7 Minutes of Madness Cold Cut Remix)

Then there’s a remix of my personal favorite track off the newest Gorillaz album Plastic Beach. “On Melancholy Hill” is serene and calming. It’s the least hip hop influenced track on the album and provides a great break in the middle of everything. It’s full of blowing bass and clinky background noise as well. [I got it from blahblahblahscience]

“On Melancholy Hill” (She is Danger 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]

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]
