I got a hold of this perfect remix by goose last week on Itunes. I thought I would stop being selfish and share it will all of you as soon as I could.
I found the remix does not sound like just one member of the band has sat down on the Mac and reproduced the tracks of this song. It sounds to me like the whole band is playing a cover of it live. The sound is very much the sound of goose the band and I have a feeling the man on the synth – Dave Martijn (formulary Soulwax’s tour guitarist) had a lot to do with this one. The sound will build up for the majority of the track and explode in an electronic onslaught for the ending. I can just imagine Goose finishing a set with this, the same style as they usually finish with “Everybody” – they should really try to play it live.
See below for a couple of original tracks from UK’s Shitdisco (awesome band) and another fine remix from French electro star Yuksek.
Shitdisco – I Know Kung-Fu
Shitdisco – Ok
Shitdisco – Ok (Yuksek Remix)
Seeing Muse on Wednesday night!! Can not wait!! Then Round and Round (Midnight Juggernauts, Boys Noize, Bumblebeez, The Glimmers and Chop Shop DJS) on Sunday. Should be a good week for tunes.
“Hey Now” and “Miami Horror” are some of the best up and coming DJ’s in Australia and if you don’t believe me from the above tracks then check below fuckers.
Lost Valentinos – 17 Deaths (Hey Now Remix)
The Dirty Secrets – 5 Feet of Snow (Miami Horror Remix)
See I told you!!! I am not always right but seldom am I wrong, or is it seldom am I right but I am always wrong? O I can’t remember whatever; you don’t even know me right?
Just listen to the tracks and enjoy some high quality shit people!!
Any way I am not really in the mood to talk about the highs and lows of the decibels because I am too busy listening to them. However I can highly recommend the Valentinos Hey Now Remix after a big night. When the vocals drop in at 1.48 you may find your self screaming and punching your fist out to the beat, wishing you could go back to the club and hear it on their system. Probably one of the coolest changes I have heard in a track.
Just In!! – Grafton Primary having a go at the remix game themselves and hitting it right on the spot with this very smooth remix of another great Aussie band Faker
Got to love the synths!
I will leave you with some of my favorite lyrics from Grafton Primary’s I can cook;
“I adore your love more then drugs in my system, these days I don’t miss them, I just want you’re kissing”
Buy the music fromItunes

I think it would be wrong to keep this blog to dance music when Indie Rock will always live closest to my heart. I will give you a feel of some albums that have excited and entertained me throughout this year plus their corresponding remix. Although some of the bands below are definitely crossing over to the dance spectrum you will always find them slicing the prism of Indie Rock.
The Sunshine Underground – Borders
The Sunshine Underground – Borders (Goodbooks Remix)
I highly recommend The Sunshine Underground Remix – the track got me into the band.
The Bloc Party – Uniform remix is a masterpiece and should be listened to with patience and grace.
I was lucky enough to see all the above bands live this year except for The Sunshine Underground who I hope a festival like the V Festival will be cool enough to bring.
The double Klaxons show last weekend was crazy, unfortunately I can not remember enough to blog about it. All I know is that when they played 4 Horseman of 2012 as their encore I nearly went into cardiorespriatory arrest.
This weekend I am hoping will be a little more quiet, although Larry Tee (New York City) is playing at the Empire on Friday night. The more I listen to the grinding bass at about 1:30 of the Herve remix of his track with Princess Superstar the more I think it would be silly to miss. He is apparently an absolute veteran of the electro scene so I have a feeling his set would be very educational.
Larry Tee – Ft. Princess Superstar – Work It Out (Herve Goes Low Remix)(Buy it From Itunes)
I will be posting a couple of entries next week as I will be seeing Van She, Soft Tigers, Cut Copy and Para One all in the one week (you should come) – Very excited. Stay Tuned.
