Well, it’s the new year. Apologies for slacking on posts. You know, end of the semester, exams, busy; no I’m not that young, I’m just old and still in school. No more!
So what was your most memorable moment in 2012?
Oppa Gangnam Style? Ugh, I know, wait can you play it again? For Sundtrak? Probably the blog much needed facelift, it looks similar but functions much better. Possibly also having the amazing remixes coming from RAC, Robotaki and The Magician that set things off. I found electronic/house taking somewhat of a dip without mainstream influences, at least here, and dubstep taking dominance in a lot of places, but there were some surprising remixes from this year in the style of electronica.
My favorite track from 2012?
I think the RAC remix of Lana Del Rey still stands strong from last year. I can listen to that song non-stop, RAC just knows how to do it.
Most memorable music video?
I think The Shoes – Time To Dance video wins that with Jake Gyllenhaal killing hipsters.
Most memorable album?
I think the jury is still out on that one. Seems like a tossup between Tame Impala – Lonerism, Django Django – Self Titled, Crystal Castles – III, maybe Grimes – Visions, but the a lot of the tracks kind of weirded me out. Definitely all albums you should check out though.
New years resolutions?
Listen to more music. Post more album reviews or even post more in general. Here’s hoping I can stick to that with the busy schedule I have ahead of me!
Shut up and give me the music! Okay! First off of the year, The Magician remix of Sebastien Tellier‘s Cochon Ville. You can always trust The Magician for a great beat, solid remix of a great track. Second is the Amtrac remix of Chromatic’s Birds of Paradise, I think this one was actually from 2012 but I really liked it and didn’t have the chance to post it before the new year! And lastly, a bit softer, the Disclosure remix of Jessie Ware Running. Really liked the sound of this track.
Let’s make this a short one. Earlier this year, his label Record Makers released a remix album of Sébastien Tellier‘s Sexuality not surprisingly titled Sexuality Remix. Since the original album came out in 2008, there have been some pretty amazing remixes of his tracks. The album was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo! I posted the Moulinex remix in late 2008 but had no idea a remix album was in the works or would be anyways.
Awesome video of the Boys Noize remix of the Boys Noize remix of L’Amour Et La Violence, okay not the content wasn’t so awesome but the video itself and goes really well with the song *psst* more than the video for the original, *shhh*. I included the original just so you can see what Boys Noize did to the track. Also, Kilometer remixed by A-Trak. I can’t decide which remix I love more, let me know which one you like better!
Sébastien Tellier – L’amour et la Violence
Sébastien Tellier – L’amour et la Violence (Boys Noize Euro Mix)
Sébastien Tellier – Kilometer (A-Trak Remix)
The most wonderful time of the year JUST passed and if you’re wonderin why I’m writing 2 days late, just think of me as the Santa that forgets stuff because he likes the sauce….and people leave out Egg Nog instead of Milk now…it’s fun.
But I do come bearing gifts. And OMIGOD, do i have plenty of stuff for you guys!!!! It would literally take me 3 pages to write about these tracks, so what i’m gonna do is shut up and what YOU are gonna do is turn up, cuz them songs is all dope!!!
Also I would like to thank all the promo people, DJs, and Managers for sending us material to keep this baby going. Without you, we’d go tits up.
