We haven’t heard much from Gorillaz at least musically since their 2005 album Demon Days. Well, you’re probably already excited about this if you’re a Gorillaz fan because they’re releasing their latest album Plastic Beach on March 9th or 8th depending on where you are which you can pre-order online on iTunes and Amazon. I’m pretty pumped for this, I’ve only heard Stylo and Superfast Jellyfish so far. Definitely hearing a bit more of a heavy base upbeat rock feel to it along with the regular Gorillaz we’re used to. Obviously I can’t comment on the album because I’m far from privileged enough to have listened to it yet.
I’ve included streaming of Stylo for you guys, you’ll have to get the album to have it for yourself, and also a couple remixes for you guys. I absolutely love the way the Louis La Roche remix starts, it almost gives me chills. That may be the perfect filter, cause I love how it changes tracks and Louis La Roche uses it perfectly. I love his remixes. Somewhat more upbeat version, the Alex Metric remix of the track is something I’d enjoy hearing at the club once in a while. That wish will never be granted unfortunately. And lastly, the Yuksek remix where he actually managed to make the track completely different. Props for that. A slower start than the other remixes, but it definitely builds up into a great track.

Before I start on the mix, a bit of a sad day yesterday. I went to AA and for the first time I couldn’t name off any of the songs they played. Damn AA hipsters have outsmarted me. To make matters worse, I walked into Gap for no good reasons at all and recognized all the songs they played. What’s going on? Is this what it feels like to be stuck in a previous generation of music? It doesn’t matter, we shall prevail! If the music won’t move with us, we’ll move with the music!
Let’s get started with the mix! Lucio Morais and Yuri Chix of Database from Sao Paulo, Brazil has made a killer mix. It’s solid, and I’ve been a big fan of electro coming out of Brazil ever since The Twelves from I think when I started blogging. Refined, tasteful, never relying on dirty sounds, it’s quite refreshing. I just talked about a drink didn’t I… or sex. A couple of their remixes from this in this mix. I included two of their remixes of Savoir Adore and Duchess Says. A track near the start I would’ve liked to include was the Rory Phillips White Horse mix of White Lies, but I’ll put that in a post some time in the future. And of course I had to include the Louis La Roche remix of Michael Jackson‘s Thriller.
