Why would I be sorry?
For now I will not be sorry instead I will be thankful to someone who truly deserves thanks and that is Adso for his first of hopefully many posts. I think you all should be very grateful to Adso as well.
Why would you be grateful?
In my defence for something I truly am not sorry about (i swear), at least when I do post it is with many hours thought as I listen to as many tracks as I can and realise some tracks are not worth posting.
Why would I waste money on stamps?
And you see I could post 1 track a day for 38 days or I could give all the tracks enough time to prove themselves and post 38 tracks in 1.
Aren’t you sick of these random questions?
I have changed my approach to suit the lazy downloader – which is all of you. See I have always been about economy when it comes to the incredible hard task of downloading so many songs. So just for you I have zipped each playlist, so instead of 38 “right click save as” you now only have to do 3. I suggest you throw each Playlist in order into Itunes or burn it onto a CD for the full effect of what I have always been trying to do here.

Friendly Fires – Paris (Aeroplane Remix ft. Au Revoir Simone)
Well it’s quite obvious to see that Aeroplane are currently my favourite producers with three appearances in the above playlists. They seem to have perfected the pop disco mix and have the perfect ear for choosing exactly the right song to remix. With help from Au Revoir Simone; they have turned Friendly Fires ‘Paris’ into a melodic journey into an elegant electronic space which can only be described with a smile. I just love the break down at 4:17 when they begin to use some deeper organs to launch the track into a screaming ending.
Grace Jones – William’s Blood (Aeroplane Remix)
A Derogatory Playlist PT IX has a down tempo feel for almost three quarters of the way. This is evidence of my changing dance music taste over the last 6 months. Once again Aeroplane fly into the ideal vocal track, this time using the immortal disco queen Grace Jones and her come back single ‘Williams Blood’. What happens during this track is amazing – an old school disco voice mixes with the new school disco beats which after a break builds into a distorted synth sample spew which I am sure Aeroplane must have stole from Soulwax.
Who Made Who – TV Friend (Hot Chip Remix)
I was lucky enough to see Who Made Who play live a couple of weeks ago and it was an absolutely brilliant set. Their new album is set for release in March and they have already launched a couple of singles. When I am looking forward to an album I always try to ignore the bands singles as I think it can ruin the album when your start listening to it from start to finish and already know 1 or 2 tracks way more then the others. This rule offcourse does not apply for remixes and Hot Chip as always have done an original job at turning this one into a 8 Min masterpiece. WMW have always concentrated on short and catchy lyrics and when they are mixed with the production expertise of someone like Hot Chip you are destined for a hit.
Franz Ferdinand – Ulysses (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Remix)
Well as anyone who knows anything knows – you never look past the Wizards Sleeve or should I say anything the Wizard Erol touches. Franz’s new album has definitely opened a whole new door for them in terms of fans and people who will be knocking on it to remix any number of their 20 new tracks. It is not a surprise that Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve does an impeccable job of keeping the track dark yet bouncy at the same time, which I think puts it just ahead of Franz’s other version ‘Feeling Kind Of Anxious’.
The Juan MacLean – One Day
I must say that this track got me extremely excited for The Juan MacLean’s new album which is coming out I think in April. It seems that Maclean has spent quite some time just doing DJ sets and the odd remix here and there so it was a pleasure to hear a song which has been produced for the band. I am hoping it gains enough popularity to see a tour come to Australia and hopefully bringing with it some DFA celebrities. The track itself is probably my favourite of the moment with its catchy sly verses which will set up a tent in your head until you listen to it again.
Kaiser Chiefs – Never Miss A Beat (Cut Copy Remix)
Whatever Cut copy touches usually turns into gold – but I must say they had a little help here with one of the most catchy songs of last year in Kaiser Chief’s ‘Never Miss A Beat’. I remember first hearing the original live in Belgium last year and knowing that it was going to be a simple hit – so with a little bit of Cut Copy magic it will/has turned into a dance floor favourite.
You will hear from me again but right now I am a little exhausted
O yeah – that’s why I was saying sorry.
