So I’m off to Portland this week, hopefully it won’t be raining the entire time. Music unrelated to that comment, finally weening myself off Hype Machine a bit, starting off with the Fred Falke remix of Nero Reaching Out. It’s an older one, but well it’s a great track. Slightly different sounding remix by Plastic Plates of Nile Delta Aztec. Actually reminds me of the good old days of when I started this blog, light techno I guess with an awesome beat. Lastly, the Aeroplane remix of Surahn Wonderful. Funky.
Well, these weren’t hard to find and the whole year I didn’t post these guys once which they dominated the years before, strangely they got a remix in last minute this year. Just in time for those year end lists! First off is the Soulwax remix of Late of the Pier Best in the Class. Although I’m still biased towards their huge remix of The Chemical Brothers, similar sounds as their other remixes, but god damn it’s great to hear another remix coming from Soulwax. I thought they gave up one them. Unfortunately this was in a single, but 70 cents isn’t terrible for a track right?! Second is the Danger remix of Nero, sounding a bit different as in more rock heavy and clean, but I’m definitely digging the track. It’s downloadable through official.fm, the link provided. I’m used to a more sinister feel from their tracks, he’s got some awesome EPs if you haven’t gotten it already. And lastly, the Clockwork remix of Para One! I’m ashamed to say I didn’t even know Para One had an album, thought he mainly produced remixes. Great tracks, now to work on that Top list for the end of the year!
