Started the week off with a rather long review, now for a short post. I’m pooped in terms of writing, I’m not a writer by nature. I have been waiting a long time to post this track, a long time being really only a week and the track being the ATLAS remix of Yeah Yeah Yeahs Maps. I love it. Sasha actually posted another one of their remixes last week of The Crystal Method, I haven’t actually heard of ATLAS before but I’m pleasantly surprised. While we’re still buzzing about Crystal Castles, the LightsoverLA remix of Vietnam, what a great remix. What Crystal Castles would sound like if they picked up full-on electro I guess. And lastly, a mash-up from Ha! Yes again this time of Lupe Fiasco Superstar and Empire of the Sun Walking on a Dream, a great mix.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Maps (ATLAS Remix)
Crystal Castles – Vietnam (LightsoverLA Remix)
Lupe Fiasco vs. Empire of the Sun – Dream of a Superstar (Ha! Yes Mash-up)
Well, i don’t know what it’s like in your part of this small blue cosmic marble, but here on the Canadian West coast it’s gorgeous right now. We got it all; the sunshine, 15C+ weather, short shorts, and of course, pollen allergies mixed with peaking hormonal activity!
Here’s some jams to set you on the course for the summer…
PUNCHES killed this remix of Au Revoir Simone. It just may be one of this year’s summer jams for me. Listening to this makes me think of phyllo pastry; light as hell, but super delicious and very fitting for this time of year!! If you own a boat, pump this baby as loud as possible!!
The Rogue Element – Mistakes
Very organic Electro sound comin from The Rogue Element…the kind of sound when Electro House just started gettin big in the early 2000s. Can’t wait for some remixes of this track. It almost reminds of Justice somewhat, but it’s got its own identity which is always a plus!!
The Crystal Method – Come Back Clean (ATLAS Remix)
Not only are ATLAS named after my favourite Super Conducting Magnet, but they also know how to spit out a crazy remix of The Crystal Method which is a feat on its own since, you know, it’s Crystal fuckin Method n’ all…..you NEED this, BIG ROOM SHIT!!!!!
Poka – Coco de Mer
And as always I got some DISCO for y’all. The name’s Poka…homie’s from Greece and if you know your global party spots, you’ll know that Greece is where it’s at. Thus you ‘ll get some wicked music coming out. SO check this drivin DISCO BANGER!!!! ALSO make sure to cop his BELIEVE EP, cuz the whole thing is sick!!
ENJOY YA HEATHENs!!
