Got three killer tracks today, I’ve been saving them up for a bit until I got three tracks together. First off is the damn amazing Barretso remix of Lana Del Rey Ride. I’ve heard a couple remixes of this track and this tops it. It’s more upbeat than the Photek remix, another one I really like. Next up is the Alex Metric remix of Empire of the Sun DNA. My first thought hearing this track was “wait, Empire of the Sun released a new album?” They did, in June! Something for me to check out. As with most Alex Metric tracks, they’re always a great listen. Lastly is Robotaki‘s remix of The M Machine A King Alone. I love the sound Robotaki tracks have, he makes great music.

We haven’t heard much from Gorillaz at least musically since their 2005 album Demon Days. Well, you’re probably already excited about this if you’re a Gorillaz fan because they’re releasing their latest album Plastic Beach on March 9th or 8th depending on where you are which you can pre-order online on iTunes and Amazon. I’m pretty pumped for this, I’ve only heard Stylo and Superfast Jellyfish so far. Definitely hearing a bit more of a heavy base upbeat rock feel to it along with the regular Gorillaz we’re used to. Obviously I can’t comment on the album because I’m far from privileged enough to have listened to it yet.
I’ve included streaming of Stylo for you guys, you’ll have to get the album to have it for yourself, and also a couple remixes for you guys. I absolutely love the way the Louis La Roche remix starts, it almost gives me chills. That may be the perfect filter, cause I love how it changes tracks and Louis La Roche uses it perfectly. I love his remixes. Somewhat more upbeat version, the Alex Metric remix of the track is something I’d enjoy hearing at the club once in a while. That wish will never be granted unfortunately. And lastly, the Yuksek remix where he actually managed to make the track completely different. Props for that. A slower start than the other remixes, but it definitely builds up into a great track.

A residual track from the Database mix I posted, the Rory Phillips remix of White Lies‘ Farewell To The Fairground. Haven’t heard of either before, but White Lies has got my small but still existent alternative rock taste-buds going. Second is the Evil Nine remix of Alex Metric, the usual refineness coming from Alex Metric. Really enjoying this track. And quite surprisingly, the Troublemaker remix of Matt and Kim. Wasn’t sure that Matt and Kim was even remixable into electro, but I guess this was quite successful. I’m officially impressed. If you’re here for the Duchess Says remix, go to the last post, Hype Machine was being a dink.
