I can’t believe I never posted this track, it’s pretty old back from 2006 but it’s still pretty amazing. The Chemical Brothers remix of Kylie Minogue Slow, The Chemical Brothers totally know how to use the right sounds. My absolute favorite sound in this remix comes around at 0:40, just something about it. While I’m on the subject of The Chemical Brothers, they’re coming out with a new album Further on June 14th. They’ve already released two singles for it, Swoon and Escape Velocity. I included the Don Diablo remix of Swoon. If you haven’t seen the music video for Swoon, you should definitely check it out here. Something else to look forward to in June. And lastly, the Glasnost remix of Yeasayer O.N.E. which is starting to sound like this post is full of tracks I posted back in the day, oh nostalgia. Loving it.

We got a new ride! You like it? I think WordPress is HUWAAAAY sexier than Blogger. It took me a bit to set everything up because I am not THAT computer savvy when it comes to FTPs, friggin server connecting, clicking things on the screen, etc. However, i fought my way through what seemed like an e-Sisyphean task for me and here I am freshly WordPressed with a crease and all.
Now let’s get back to what we do here best and hook you up with some music…
Rubix – Disco Electronique (Rubix Edit)
Lots of good House coming out of Holland these days. Laidback Luke, Don Diablo, and some other guys are starting a revolution, I think. It’s comforting to see that Holland is moving away from Trance which we all know has been the staple for a Dutch producer/DJ for decades now. Rubix shows this new revolution beautifully with this track. Great Disco banger that’ll kill anything in its path……definitely a must have!!
DCUP – To Be In Love (Universe Remix)
Alright! Looks like there’s a new kid on the block called Universe. We do NOT know who he/she/them is/are, but what we do know is that this/these kid/kids is/are really wicked at what they do with other people’s tracks!! Annoyed with the slashes yet? Me, too! So here’s Universe’s take on DCUP and make sure to check out the other remixes!
Crystal Castles – Crimewave (Midnight Conspiracy Remix)
Midnight Conspiracy have been occupying my inbox and iTunes for a while now and rightfully so. I’m not much of a Crystal Castles fan, but this remix is making me reconsider that snobbiness. So if they can convert moi, then you HAVE to have this track. Very dope if you wanna impress some hipsters 😀
So I heard if you hoop E, you get higher or somethin? Anyways, it doesn’t matter, drugs are for teenagers and rich housewives.
So, my lovees, as always I have some goodies for ya. I’ve been gettin a lot of music lately, but there wasn’t an amazing amount of ear catching stuff; it was mostly Dub Step and Electro that was clearly just copy/pastes of big acts like MSTRKRFT and such. I always prefer to showcase a lesser known artist to a bigger act because of the fame and glory part, but if you’re just emulating the big dogs….well, you won’t have much success in making a name for yourself. Hence, stop listening to and focusing on what the popular things are and get workin with some creativity and put yourself into your music. And DON’T forget to send Jon, Dexter, and/or Me the fruits…
Let’s Do This!
Don Diablo – Teen Scream Machine (Nightriders Remix)
WOW! Really REALLY wicked track! Nightriders have been on my radar for about a year or so now and they absolutely MURDER this remix of Don Diablo’s “Teen Scream Machine.” If you dj on a regular basis, you need this track for the ladies; it’ll make’em want to have your kids. And in case you’re a DJane…hey, nothin wrong with some girl-on-girl akceeeon!
Swick – Grow Up (Cassian Remix)
Hey, you know how much I LOVE Disco by now, right? Well, here we go…Cassian’s remix of Swick – Grow Up. Beautiful driving drum line, trumpets, piano, synths, and all that delicious stuff. Just a gorgeous tune ready to flare up the flashin lights…lights…lights
Paolo Barbato – The Violin (Seth Vogt Remix)
I really dig the strings in this track; usually tracks like this can really drop into the cheesy-ass section of Prog House, especially with a violin sample. But this is a very solid production. See how I changed my tone to a bit of a serious one? That’s because I respect Prog House producers the most and it is really hard to execute a good track and respectively, PB and Seth Vogt did a great job with the track. So enjoy!
The Young Punx – Ready For The Fight (Phonat’s Punkstep Remix)
Haha, this never happens…I actually like a DnB track and even care to post it. I know what you’re thinkin, “how can he not like DnB, wtf?” Yeah, well whatever, I don’t like EVERYTHING; to be honest with you, I still don’t get why everyone is on this Dub Step business. HOWEVER, i do like this track and hey, it’s The Young Punx and Phonat, so this has no other option, but to be a real bad-ass track, which it is…so yeah!
Enjoy ya heathens!
Yaaay, Sasha is back….
Sorry for not writing in the longest time; just been a bit busy havin a day job and trying to make a living the good old fashion way. I know, I can’t believe The New Yorker hasn’t hired me yet either. Ahhh they can’t handle the BZZZZZ BZZZZZ and WHOOOMMMP WHOOOMMMP anyways. Well, speaking of which, Jon said it best. Bit of a slump lately and people out there need to get back to the drawing boards and down to the basics because the simpler a song is the better it is. BUT i’ve been diggin around in my mailbox over the last couple of weeks and found a couple of nice tracks i would like to share wiv ya. First up is Linus Loves’ remix of Don Diablo – I am not from France. It’s very silky smooth and a great afterhours tune and since it’s rather cold outside (from a Canadian standpoint), the track’s wicked to warm your little tucheses. Next track is BIG…..like “Shit’s on FIYAH” big! The Berlin/Manchester duo Popular Damage radioactively ionized Zoot Woman’s We Won’t Break and what’s better and more trustworthy in Electro than the good old German capital. Definitely a MUST HAVE!!
There ya have it, lovees……enjoy the beats, go easy on X-mas treats!
