Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

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.

Saturday Night Fever

Three great tracks for you guys today, been listening to these all week. First is from the one and only Fred Falke, his remix of the Whitest Boy Alive Golden Cage which when I was listening to it strangely but at the same time not really reminded me of Saturday Night Fever. When I ended up Youtubing the famous dance scene from it I remembered how bad that movie actually was simply because it had absolutely no cultural relevance to me whatsoever when I watched it in my teens like what, 20 years after it was actually produced. I don’t blame the movie for that. Point of that rant? Sounded like disco, and I liked it. Second is the remix by Robotaki of Shinichi Osawa. Robotaki from Montreal, Canada, definitely interested in your remixes now. And lastly, good old Death to the Throne and his remix of Metric Twilight Galaxy. Totally could’ve been a track on its own, but worked great with the song.

Moving Cities

Well, I’m finally packing up my life and moving to Toronto. It’s about time but that means a couple things. New job and city means less time; that will either make me post even more which was what happened in the first two years of university for me and my grades plummeted as a result or I won’t be posting as much for a bit as I readjust. Also, I won’t have internet for a while. So depending on how reliable the internet at Starbucks is and how lenient they are with me stretching their bandwidth by downloading music, don’t expect me to post as much as before. Check in from time to time though, I’ll save the best tracks for the post I’ll make from time to time. Anyways, as usual, I’ve got three tracks for you today to start the week off, the Chew Fu remix of Rihanna Rockstar 101 which was pretty good. I’ve posted some Chew Fu remixes before and have always been impressed. The Mustard Pimp remix of Shinichi Osawa EEAA, more club this time. And the 80Kidz remix of Metric‘s Help I’m Alive. Not completely sure if I’ve already posted this but that doesn’t matter, I like this remix.

Also, here is some stuff from my inbox. I’ve yet to listen to it thoroughly, but the tracklists on these mixes look good. Maybe you can let me know via comments what you think of them! The Team Randalism mixtape Les Ailes Du Papillon and the PUNCHES mixtape Somebody Has To Help You. And from recent web stuff, check out Kid Cudi – All Talk feat. LCD Soundsystem, Christian Bale, and Chip Tha Ripper, and Kanye West – Power feat. Dwele. I didn’t post any of this as an mp3/streaming by the way, so for those of you who don’t read my posts (probably lots of you), you’ll miss out!

Immuzikation – Ne Sucks Pas


I haven’t posted about Immuzikation in a long time, it actually makes me sad that I haven’t. But alas, a mix from Alfredo with 39 tracks in 15 minutes. When I saw that, my initial reaction was “this is going to be way too busy”, I’m not always a big fan of mashup mixes, but it actually worked out amazingly. He was nice enough to include a very comprehensive tracklist which will come in handy cause these tracks are great. Basically everything I want to hear in a night in 15 minutes. Included three tracks, back in player form, his own remix of Metric‘s Help, I’m Alive. I absolutely love the mashup between Treasure Fingers and Santigold which leads into the synth he uses a couple times in the mix. Also included DJ Mehdi‘s Tunisia Bambaata and the Chromeo remix of Treasure Fingers. Also love the transition from K.I.M.’s Party Machini into MSTRKRFT, listened to that one a couple times.
