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.

I Gotta Feeling


That tonight’s gonna be a good night? No, don’t worry, as much as I’d like to, I’m not posting that Black Eyed Peas song. Completely unrelated intro to this post. A bit cheery, but the Buffetlibre remix of Dragonette‘s Easy. It’s from their new album Fixin to Thrill which I’m ashamed to say I haven’t got yet. I’m a huge Dragonette fan regardless of how pop you’re going to say they sound. The Mr. Vega remix of Popskarr Tonight, which sounds like an 80’s revival type remix. I actually had to double check that Popskarr wasn’t actually from the 80’s, I’ve never heard of them before. To my surprise they’re actually from South Africa; DJ Lapse whom I’ve posted multiple times before is the producer and IAMWAVES does the vocals. And lastly, the Tits & Clits remix of Royksopp Tricky Tricky. The track is tricky indeed, it sounds like it’s going to be awfully club/techno sounding, but it does a 180 right after the intro. Okay maybe not a 180, it does a 45…
