Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of the rabbit, those of you who are rabbits rejoice! I actually have no idea what happens when its your year. Didn’t we all hear about The White Stripes breaking? Wait, does that mean Jack White can start his solo career? Starting off the big hit, the Miami Horror remix of Gorillaz. I really thought I posted this already, I even remember writing this description of the song, strangely enough I used the same description about another remix I posted earlier. The remix totally reminds me of the Aeroplane remix of Friendly Fires. I have to say, this may be one of my favorite remixes of this track, and yes there were that many remixes of Empire Ants that I could choose a favorite. Second is the Chew Fu remix of Kerli Army of Love. A bit more synth for you there, something a bit faster. And lastly, it seems to be a trend that’s coming along with my posts, the last track always resembling something vaguely 8-bit. No vocals, this track the Rimer London remix of Classic Brothers is great on its own.

Well, I’m finally packing up my life and moving to Toronto. It’s about time but that means a couple things. New job and city means less time; that will either make me post even more which was what happened in the first two years of university for me and my grades plummeted as a result or I won’t be posting as much for a bit as I readjust. Also, I won’t have internet for a while. So depending on how reliable the internet at Starbucks is and how lenient they are with me stretching their bandwidth by downloading music, don’t expect me to post as much as before. Check in from time to time though, I’ll save the best tracks for the post I’ll make from time to time. Anyways, as usual, I’ve got three tracks for you today to start the week off, the Chew Fu remix of Rihanna Rockstar 101 which was pretty good. I’ve posted some Chew Fu remixes before and have always been impressed. The Mustard Pimp remix of Shinichi Osawa EEAA, more club this time. And the 80Kidz remix of Metric‘s Help I’m Alive. Not completely sure if I’ve already posted this but that doesn’t matter, I like this remix.
Also, here is some stuff from my inbox. I’ve yet to listen to it thoroughly, but the tracklists on these mixes look good. Maybe you can let me know via comments what you think of them! The Team Randalism mixtape Les Ailes Du Papillon and the PUNCHES mixtape Somebody Has To Help You. And from recent web stuff, check out Kid Cudi – All Talk feat. LCD Soundsystem, Christian Bale, and Chip Tha Ripper, and Kanye West – Power feat. Dwele. I didn’t post any of this as an mp3/streaming by the way, so for those of you who don’t read my posts (probably lots of you), you’ll miss out!
Rihanna – Rockstar 101 (Chew Fu Teachers Pet Fix)
Shinichi Osawa – EEAA (Mustard Pimp Remix)
Metric – Help I’m Alive (80Kidz Remix)
I finally got a chance to go through my inbox, have a couple tracks I really liked for you guys which will probably bleed into the next couple posts. Starting off with the Chew Fu remix of Robyn Dancing On My Own, finally something that’s electro/dance and not club. I’ve been posting too much club lately. It’s a great mix with Robyn as well, her stuff is usually the first thing people will go to remix, not a bad thing although it comes off that way doesn’t it. Second track is a bit lighter, the Tame Impala cover of Midnight Juggernauts’ new single Vital Signs; both of which you should totally check out. Both Aussies which is a scene I’ve unknowingly ignored for the last year. Tame Impala has some interesting tracks, you should check out this video a friend forwarded to me a couple days ago of their song Solitude Is Bliss; cool video. Also, Midnight Juggernaut’s new album The Crystal Axis due for May 28th, I still know nothing about it. Great cover though, here’s the original if you’re curious. A little high video. And lastly, the Buffetlibre remix of Plushgun Mixtape. The original is actually part of their PEACE project if you missed that with my last post about them.

Tame Impala – Vital Signs (Midnight Juggernauts Cover)
Plushgun – Mixtapes (Buffetlibre Remix)
