So I’m off to Portland this week, hopefully it won’t be raining the entire time. Music unrelated to that comment, finally weening myself off Hype Machine a bit, starting off with the Fred Falke remix of Nero Reaching Out. It’s an older one, but well it’s a great track. Slightly different sounding remix by Plastic Plates of Nile Delta Aztec. Actually reminds me of the good old days of when I started this blog, light techno I guess with an awesome beat. Lastly, the Aeroplane remix of Surahn Wonderful. Funky.
No that isn’t Rebecca Black, sheesh. Got some great tracks for you today, and despite them being popular on Hype Machine, I actually found most of them on Soundcloud! What a great place for music. Starting off with a great track suggested from one of you guys, the Plastic Plates remix of Strange Talk Cast Away. Awesome remix, thanks for forwarding it to me, more of this! Second is the RAC remix of Chromeo Bonafied’ Lovin which I though I had heard enough of, but apparently not. Great rendition of the track, I can always trust RAC to properly revamp something. One minute in, such a great sound. Thirdly is the Jay Lamar and Jesse Oliver remix of Viceroy Chase Us Around. Always loved Viceroy, this remix is pretty pleasant, we need to move away from the upbeat sometimes. Leaving off with the Oliver remix of Aeroplane‘s We Can’t Fly… oh so retro electro or funktronica? These guys are great. If you’re looking for the Zimmer mix because you got linked here, it’s on this post.
No no, not the Katy Perry song. I had the privilege of hearing that song like 10 times on my drive back into Toronto last night. Really excited for this first track, the Monsieur Adi remix of Ellie Goulding. I’m still waiting for that second album from Ellie Goulding, the first album Lights was killer. I love the sound of this remix though, really makes my week. Second is the Aeroplane remix of George Michael Faith. Wait, remix of George Michael? Why hasn’t this been done more often? And lastly, the Blue Satellite remix of Retro/Grade Mindfighter. More traditional, maybe music is turning out better than the economy is!

George Michael – Faith (Aeroplane Remix)
RetroGrade – Mindfighter (Blue Satellite Remix)
Let’s start off with an awesome remix by Aeroplane of Breakbot Baby I’m Yours. I’m always impressed by Aeroplane’s remixes, if you can remember their amazing remix of Au Revoir Simone last year. This sounds something almost out of Tron at the beginning, I love the retro sound and I’ve far from gotten my fix of it this year. I haven’t really paid much attention to Breakbot but I really have to listen to more of his stuff. The original track is completely different from the remix though; retro but not electro. Well, I haven’t posted any Katy Perry tracks in almost a year and in honor of her new, well month old single I will be posting the ALGERONICS remix of the California Gurls. Since that summer of I Kissed A Girl, Katy Perry really fell behind Lady Gaga at least in hype. Maybe that will change with a new album coming out this year. And lastly, the Epyk remix of Jamaica. Nice improvements to the track. I totally thought I posted Jamaica, this track was produced by Xavier de Rosnay from Justice. It seems I never did though.
