Woah, what happened to the last month? Went by so quickly I didn’t even notice! Got three great tracks I’ve been saving, by saving I mean listened to and failed to post instantly, smartphone required in immediate future. Starting off with the Madeon remix of Martin Solveig, both of whom I’ve really enjoyed listening to in the past, suggested from a friend. Reminds me slightly of Bag Raiders, please come back to us old friend. Second is the Viceroy remix of St Lucia, I really have to invest some more time into Viceroy, you should too. And lastly, a Fred Falke remix of Theophilus London, you can always count on Fred Falke for a quality remix. Really works well with the vocals as well.

St Lucia – Closer Than This (Viceroy Remix)
Theophilus London – Love Is Real (Fred Falke Remix)
Well, if I’ve never mentioned before; I’m doing my Masters in Science and I’m getting close to completing it aka shit’s hitting the fan. I just finished my big presentation, so all is calm for now until I have to start writing my thesis. Before any of that, holidays come first and the blog just got pushed back to near the top. Listening to music again, I actually haven’t really listened to much other than the big albums that came out recently for the last month. First time listening to Hype Machine in a while and hearing some great tracks, first on the list is the Adventure Club remix of Metric’s Collect Call which strangely reminds me of Ellie Goulding‘s Starry Eyed. The originals are vaguely similar, but the remix makes it a lot closer for me. Strangely enough, the Adventure Club remix is dubstep, but I don’t hate it. Very strange. Posting the Russ Chimes remix of Ellie Goulding with this. Next track is the Ipaneema mash-up Rock your Weapon at the Cinema which has the Madeon remix of Deadmau5‘s Raise Your Weapon, the Skrillex remix of Benny Benassi‘s Cinema, and a little shout out to MJ Rock With You at the beginning. I was going to post the Madeon remix as well because it’s such a great remix but I already posted it a while back. Lastly, the Royskopp remix of Kings of Leon The Immortals, intro threw me off a bit but what a great track.

Not really a new track, back from fall 2010 and well, I can’t say I love the original track. Don’t get me wrong, Deadmau5 is great, but some of the music he makes is kind of beyond the genre of electro I actually like; dubstep. Nothing against the genre, I just never truly understood it and I’m just amazingly finicky. Anyways, I can see that some others really liked Raise Your Weapon as well, but the less bass-heavy parts and wished it had more house beats. I can’t thank Madeon, Ron Reeser, and Lee Osborne enough for pulling this track back into the spectrum of electro I love listening to.
