Remember those trippy tee-shirts from the D.A.N.C.E. video? Well now you can have a set of your very own hipster tee’s, for the modest price of 50 euros (~$66). Okay, so that’s really not too modest, but how awesome are these shirts? You can pick them up in sets of two over at We Sold Out. And no, this post is not an excuse for me to post more of the seemingly endless stream of Justice remixes.
Some remixes to get your day started. Lately I haven’t been actively seeking out remixes, instead letting them find me. It’s worked out well, even if that means fewer remixes. Also, I’ve got a request; I’m looking for: R. Kelly – I’m A Flirt (DJ Obsession soca ragga remix) [ft. Lady Saw & T-Pain. If you happen to know where I can find that, let me know. Enjoy the mixes!
Happy Monday! We all hate them, so here are a few remixes to make things a little better. As usual, all the remixes here are good, but if you’re looking for something extra, I’d go with any of the YACHT remixes. They’ve got that bouncy optimism that you probably need today.
For whatever reason, Remix Roundup just wasn’t working anymore, so it’s been changed to Remix Monday. While todays remixes may look a little random, they’re all actually tangentially interrelated. I started with Björk, which led me to the Spank Rock remix of ‘Earth Intruders’. From there, all these other artists popped up. There are some really great remixes here, but I think my favorite would have to be Beck’s remix of Alarm Call. He tears the song apart, then uses the most unlikely parts as beats. It’s actually a little funny at times. Enjoy.
It’s Monday again, which means it’s time for yet another Remix Roundup; the fifth or sixth, I believe. Todays remixes are much more focused than last weeks, though that’s not exactly a hard feat. They’re also a little Grizzly Bear-centric, in anticipation of Dept. Of Eagles upcoming album. I’ve also included an odd little remix, sent to me by an artist called Kula. It’s interesting, to say the least. Finally, the Dntel remixes are meant to get you excited about Dntel’s new album, Dumb Luck, which will be released tomorrow (4/24). I’ll be posting my review of that later today, so stay tuned.
It’s Monday again, and you know what that means: more remixes! They’re all pretty decent, but my personal favorite of the bunch is the Appogee remix of Bright Eye’s Lover I Don’t Have To Love. It keeps the best parts of the original, while adding an extra dose of electro. Enjoy!
Last week I introduced this feature, unsure if it was something I wanted to keep. After reviewing it’s traffic stats at the end of last week, I think it’s safe to say you’ll be seeing this feature every Monday from now on. Today, things are a little different. One of the remixes I included is actually just an alternate version (The Good Times Are Killing Me), and another isn’t an artist remixed, but and artist remixing (Scarecrow). That’s the nice thing about working with artists who are also producers; their back catalog is so damn big, that it’s never hard to find a suitable song to post. I’d more or less forgotten that El-P had remixed Becks Scarecrow until I started working on this post; after all, Guerolito isn’t exactly the type of record that gets heavy rotation from me. But, El-P’s is definitely one of the standout remixes on that album. It’s still Beck’s Scarecrow, but it has El-P’s harsh edge going for it too. The result is a pretty damn good song.
Since I feel a rant coming on, I’ll give you a little break before it comes. So, welcome to the first remix roundup, where I bring together remixes from popular artists. Ideally, I should be able to do this every Monday, but you never can tell. I don’t have much to say about these remixes, except that if you can recognize ‘North American Scum’, you’re a better person than I am.
