New Moullinex. I’m ecstatic. I love the build-up of his remix of Voltaire Twins Romulus, amazing track I can’t stop listening to. It’s the little things that count when it comes to Moullinex. You have to listen to the original as well, I’ve never heard of the Voltaire Twins but they’re sounding great on their own. Also included some of his other recent tracks, the remix of Gigamesh and of his original Sunflare.
I’m alive! Last two weeks was hell, but I survived and now I’ll have a bit more time. Wanted to come back with a post about Foster The People‘s debut track Pumped Up Kicks. Although they’ve only released three tracks, they’ve gotten quite a bit of attention on music blogs. I’ve only really heard this song Pumped Up Kicks and Houdini, I can see them making it pretty big. Although I see them hitting it big more in the mainstream category than indie, that’s not bad is it? The thing I love about remixes is how they can take something great and put it over the top awesome… some of the time. It might be because they’re combining two of my favorite music genres. I posted The Knocks remix of this track a couple weeks ago, but I couldn’t help but post these two other remixes. The Gigamesh remix is pure gold, it’s kind of what I look for when I search for tracks. Not synth or beat overload, but a good amount of electro. Also the TABS remix which I found was toned down a bit compared to the Gigamesh remix, it actually has a great beat.

It’s 30C out here in Toronto and it’s 9AM. Is this a joke? What’s going on? Is this Canada or not?! I thought the deal was we got extreme cold in the winter and not too hot in the summer. Anyways, lack of brain power at the moment, this is going to be a very straight forward week update post which may or may not contain a lot of mistakes. I was looking for pictures at first and was trying to make it related to the post title; things that are hot, but all that did was make me feel even warmer. I decided to do all of us a favor and post with a picture of a nice cold snow cone! First is a remix by Mylo and Sharooz of Robyn Don’t Fucking Tell Me What To Do. Overall the track both really impresses me and makes me laugh. It kind of sounds like they had a lot of fun remixing this track, not really following a rigid format. Second is the Gigamesh remix of Mike Posner Cooler Than Me which caught my attention. And lastly, none other than Katy Perry‘s California Gurls which as annoyingly popular as the song is is so damn catchy. Remix by Passion Pit, their remixes always surprise me cause it’s so different from their actual music. Sorry for the lack of posts over the last two weeks, I’ve been in Ottawa my hometown more than where I’m living now in Toronto but I’m back now!
