Pretty exciting start to the year, got a couple possible submitted mixtapes and great tracks keep getting released. Getting back into things, a quick search got me onto these three tracks. First is the A-Trak remix of Robyn Indestructible from her most recent album Body Talk. Both the remix and the original are pure gold. The thing I actually love the most in the remix, among many other things, is after the intro once the beats start coming in, that transition sound which you hear more of during the electro solo at 2:20 which isn’t actually from the original I don’t think. Damn, call me weird, but I could listen to that all day. Make sure you check out the original by Robyn in this racy video. From the same circle, the Duck Sauce remix of Chromeo Hot Mess featuring La Roux from their most recent album Business Casual. Armand Van Helden and A-Trak are a great match, loving this remix. And lastly, drums drums drums Clockwork remix of Dem Slackers Swagger. Now that’s raw.
Chromeo – Hot Mess (Duck Sauce Remix)
Well, these weren’t hard to find and the whole year I didn’t post these guys once which they dominated the years before, strangely they got a remix in last minute this year. Just in time for those year end lists! First off is the Soulwax remix of Late of the Pier Best in the Class. Although I’m still biased towards their huge remix of The Chemical Brothers, similar sounds as their other remixes, but god damn it’s great to hear another remix coming from Soulwax. I thought they gave up one them. Unfortunately this was in a single, but 70 cents isn’t terrible for a track right?! Second is the Danger remix of Nero, sounding a bit different as in more rock heavy and clean, but I’m definitely digging the track. It’s downloadable through official.fm, the link provided. I’m used to a more sinister feel from their tracks, he’s got some awesome EPs if you haven’t gotten it already. And lastly, the Clockwork remix of Para One! I’m ashamed to say I didn’t even know Para One had an album, thought he mainly produced remixes. Great tracks, now to work on that Top list for the end of the year!
