The Ting Tings – Great DJ (Calvin Harris) - The original of this track is really gaining popularity and I only found that out after thoroughly enjoying this remix. Calvin Harris is clearly a genius and all I hope is that he continues to produce great disco dance hits/remixes and does not turn to the dark side and start producing for pop stars as a career. His album was one of my favorite from last year and his live show earlier this year was very impressive. I loved him for touring with a band when he could have just as easily settled for a one man show like Muscles. This remix is real disco pop and it is sure to make every one happy.
Cut Copy – Lights and Music (Moulinex Remix) –
I have been a little obsessed with Cut Copy’s Lights and Music since I first noticed it in a live set last year at Daft Punk. I have just got my hands on their new album “In Ghost Colours” and for just one listen so far it is really sounding the goods. It almost reminds me of “The Dark Side of The Moon” in the way it is mixed and put together with pysadelic intermissions between tracks. The original will always stand above this remix because “Moulinex” decided to loop just the “And Music” for the closing part of the track cutting out the all important weapon of the original chorus lyrics. The remix becomes an absolute destroyer at around 1:30 when the jumpy bass synth provides a real electro feel. This has been my favorite remix for a few weeks now and is still going strong; I would love to hear this one out.
Calling In Sick – Cali Games – Where the hell did these guys come from?? Apparently Sydney and I thank my mate Skour for pointing them out to me. I first heard their track “Cali Games” on their myspace and I was amazed at the bumpy ride the track took me on. The first noise that grabbed me was what sounded like a clean synthesised slap bass riff which was soon accompanied by the complete opposite in a disgustingly dirty lower end. The track continues to lay down amazing sounds and riffs which sounds a little like Kissy Sell Out if he was to sign to Ed Banger records. . It sounds like a lead guitarist is hiding somewhere within this electro production, with incredible solo synthesised guitar riffs ripping perfectly through the bottom end of the track. Check out the boys at their myspace for some of their other productions/remixes. If “Ajax” has heard these guys I am sure he could be thinking of putting them on his new label as they would fit perfectly.
The Rolling Stones – You Can’t Always Get What You Want (Soulwax Remix) – Well this is just another remix for the Dewaele brothers to add to their already blinding resume of all things perfect in music. I believe “The Rolling Stones” had some say in how far they could go from the original and what the end product would be, but who would not trust Soulwax to produce perfection in every form. This remix was made for the new movie coming out soon called “21″ which has the greatest sound track I have ever seen including tracks from “MGMT, Get Shakes, LCD Soundsystem (New Track), Peter Bjorn and John, Junkie XL, UNKLE and Mark Ronson”. The remix is progressive keeping the original vocal track building with some synthy bass and what I believe to be original samples. This track will be perfect for the movie and I am looking forward to seeing how they use it.
Hope you enjoy the tracks, have a great Easter, eat lots of chocolate and remember the myth at Skull Hill near Jerusalem.
Buy the music from Itunes and help support the artist that give you so much happiness.
