Well, not really the end of the world, but windy (except in New York where it is the Day After Tomorrow). Here’s some music the pass the time. Yes, you are correct! The Magician remix of Lykke Li‘s I Follow Rivers. I haven’t heard a better remix of the track, all the other remixes are intense trance ones. But this remix segues perfectly into this second track, the Zimmer remix of Pompeya Power. If I were to make a mix, this would be the likely track after the Lykke Li remix. Love the sound of it, takes me a back a bit. Really clean as well. Ending off with the Vindata remix of Strange Talk‘s Cast Away which is also really clean sounding. I guess that’s the theme of this post!

Strange Talk – Cast Away (Vindata Remix)
Starting off the week with some non-remix tracks. Starting off with Strange Talk‘s Cast Away which I heard on Hype a couple weeks ago and fell in love with it almost instantly. I thought it sounded very familiar but in a distant kind of way, rightfully so for two different reasons. They’re part of that Australian wave, which I was fully into a couple years ago, but I have since sadly not heard much of lately. The more obvious reason was because I posted their track Eskimo Boy a while back, but this track was actually quite different from the tracks in their first single. It’s a direction they’re taking that I’m really getting into, more of this. Second is Moullinex Kassette that I couldn’t help but post, given that it encompasses the sound this blog has always been after. So much love for Moullinex, even when he was still Moulinex with one ‘l’. And lastly, totally late on this one as it was from last year, Lykke Li‘s I Follow Rivers. Great track, I’ll post a great remix of it that I’m sure you’ve heard already in the next post.

My friend mentioned Kleerup yesterday while we were out, I’ve definitely heard of him before, but I never paid much attention. Kleerup. Electronic producer from Sweden, he made Until We Bleed with Lykke Li and With Every Heartbeat with Robyn back in 2008 in his debut album. The crazy thing is I listened to both these songs a lot when they came out, I just never linked Kleerup. My bad.
These tracks are pretty old, but I love review posts. If I could go post up Van She remixes from 4 years ago again, I totally would. I’ve posted a remix of this track before, I’m surprised I didn’t post any of the other remixes. Here it is! I’m in love with the Meatboys remix, mainly because of that slightly retro sound, but it seems it got very little love. I guess it’s got less surprises than the other remixes. The Kleerup remix is awesome, sounds pretty different and it’s got this harsh sharp sound to it which is great. The Tong & Spoon remix takes a different approach, kind of quiet with big beats, definitely enjoying it. And the Adieus remix of Until We Bleed.
