Hello old friends. Was listening to RAC’s Chapter One soundcloud mix the other day and had this immense feeling of nostalgia for Sundtrak. I think my taste in music has changed over the last year or two, so I may attempt to ease the blog into it a bit. Anyways without further ado, here’s a random post like the good old days. I’m still a bit iffy about the whole Soundcloud formatted posts, but it is the most legit and easiest way I can provide streaming. Soundcloud really has taken over, it’s different from way back, but if you scroll back a post or two you’ll see why I dislike Soundcloud… tracks simply disappear. Let me know if you prefer this or the old player.
Duke Dumont – Ocean Drive
Got three killer tracks today, I’ve been saving them up for a bit until I got three tracks together. First off is the damn amazing Barretso remix of Lana Del Rey Ride. I’ve heard a couple remixes of this track and this tops it. It’s more upbeat than the Photek remix, another one I really like. Next up is the Alex Metric remix of Empire of the Sun DNA. My first thought hearing this track was “wait, Empire of the Sun released a new album?” They did, in June! Something for me to check out. As with most Alex Metric tracks, they’re always a great listen. Lastly is Robotaki‘s remix of The M Machine A King Alone. I love the sound Robotaki tracks have, he makes great music.

I had serious doubts on if I could continue this blog. It’s getting harder and harder to find the specific type of music I love, I fully blame that on the lack of time I have which I used to have to scour the internet. I’ve been settling for shitty remixes lately, the stuff that gets on the top 50 of Hype Machine and fully judging the scene based on that. Forget that, I’m not looking for the newest most popular anymore. I watched Drive a couple months ago and after hearing Kavinsky, I slowly developed my love again for this music. Kavinsky was one of the first house artists I listened to outside of the mainstream when I started blogging, I definitely remember obsessing over Testarossa Autodrive for nights on end. Him and SebastiAn really helped pull me into Electro House, obviously overlooking Daft Punk and Justice. I went from listening to almost exclusively indie rock to full out electro house in a matter of months, then it mutated into retro electro which was a word I made up to describe the weirder version of electro, basically what Futureflashs and Moullinex did. Anyways, reinvigorated!! Speaking of retro, the Lenno remix of Futurecop! Starrset, I can always depend on Futurecop! for that. Going back pretty far back, the Kavinsky remix of SebastiAn Embody. And two Robotaki remixes of Apparat Organ Quartet and Popular Computer.

So, my life is going 50 miles per second. Schools catching up on me and it seems my stuff is more interesting than I thought. I wish I had more time to listen to music because that world is becoming more and more exciting, I’m anticipating a good year. That’s my excuse, take it. New Feist album, I know, isn’t this an electro blog? No! Not completely. Also the new Justice album which I’m hoping is great despite that awful remix. Yeah okay, that’s about it, but I have good vibes. I totally missed the new SebastiAn and Carte Blanche albums coming from Ed Banger, more stuff for me to catch up on. I decided today not to post the newest tracks out there, but ones by my favorite musicians/producers. First is the Falcon Punch edit of Moullinex Lover In Me Ah Moulinex, how I miss thee. Please do some more remixes, I know your original stuff is great and probably more important but your remixes were pure gold. Second is the Breakbot remix of Pnau Baby which I was shown is on the GT5 soundtrack. And lastly, the Robotaki remix of Kavinsky. Old but still, I love everything Robotaki makes. Oh, and thanks Sam for the image.

I was going to rummage through my inbox today to get some music, the inbox that has like 2000 unread messages where a good portion of it is spam, but I couldn’t give up the awesome tunes that’s on Hype right now. And no, I’m not bragging about my carelessness towards checking my email, I’m actually really ashamed of it because it’s kind of integral of running a blog. It’s a tiny bit difficult though not having access to internet to check my email. Though I did see a lot of turtles, a bear, a white-tailed deer, and a grouse though, along with many mosquitoes and black flies which loved biting me. On to the music I’m really excited for!!
By far my favorite remix of Daft Punk‘s Tron’s Derezzed so far by Robotaki. Your remixes never cease to amaze me, loving the intro the track and that clean non-generic beat. I totally thought I made a Derezzed post, I guess I didn’t. Well, that’ll have to come up soon cause there are some pretty great ones out there. Second more groove track is the Viceroy edit of Duck Sauce Goody Two Shoes. And lastly, reminding me of the good old times, the Lazy Rich remix of Fast Foot Protect Animals. Sounds slightly like Boys Noize meets SebastiAn to me.
