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.

Easter Weekend! We get it off here anyways, not sure about the US. Someone I know who goes to university in the US said he still had classes. Let’s start off the day with some of The Bloody Beetroots and their remix of Vitalic Second Lives. I don’t normally post The Bloody Beetroots because their area of dance music I don’t typically enjoy, but I really liked this track. So I made an exception damn it. Second is The Twelves remix of Two Door Cinema Club which I’m four days late on posting. I got to add them on my RSS reader or something to stay up to date on them. As usual from The Twelves, totally the right sound I love, I expect nothing less! And lastly, another Ha! Yes mash-up, this time of Notorious B.I.G. Juicy and The xx Intro. I know, there’s been so many B.I.G. and The xx mash-ups lately that you’re probably sick of it. I was too, but I heard this and was pleasantly surprised. So before you comment about how disgusted you are before you even listen to the track, give it a chance.

Here on a beautiful Sunday, posting a great remix producer Death to the Throne. I posted his first original release earlier this year. I noticed these on Hype Machine and looked around the blog, somehow I missed both these remixes! They’re from 2009, but they’re amazing! I couldn’t believe the remix of The xx‘s Shelter, best one I’ve heard so far. I also included the remix of Daft Punk Technologic.

Also, I happened upon an email from Ha! Yes. He’s got a bunch of mash-ups on his Myspace, you should definitely check it out. I included one of his mash-ups between The Twelves’ remix of the Black Kids I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You and Jay-Z Encore.
