Well, seems the music might be getting better this year? First time in a while I took a look around on Hype Machine and actually liked some of the stuff being posted, and the lists weren’t being flooded by dubstep. You know I went to a party recently and everyone born after 1990 wanted dubstep, I was deeply saddened because dubstep is so prominent now and I’m old… Anyways, first time in a while, I’m happy to post some hits from this week. Starting off with the Calvin Harris remix if his own song Let’s Go. The original remix before I borrowed it said featuring Ne-Yo, it’s kind of funny because I felt like this track was everything from the original minus Ne-Yo… and my electronic music self likes it more. Yeah, I took out the “featuring” part. The Hey Champ remix of Housse De Racket Chateau, absolutely loving this one. More of this please music world. And lastly as I promised, a SebastiAn remix of The Shoes Time To Dance. Surprisingly not a lot of remixes for this track, and it’s been at least a year. That’s unfortunate.

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.

I totally missed April Fools. I didn’t fool anyone nor did anyone fool me. That’s disappointing and quite anticlimactic compared to the one from 2009, unfortunately all the comments were deleted. I’ll keep something in mind for next year. I’ve been absolutely garbage at checking my email the last couple weeks, so these tracks are a result of music blog skimming. Yea, I take no credit for finding these tracks on my own except for the SposhRock remix. First off, the Fred Falke remix of Metronomy. Is there a Fred Falke remix I haven’t liked? No, greatness as usual. Relatively new SebastiAn track Embody and a new Kavinsky remix of the track. I think I’m in heaven, this totally reminds me of the good old days when I started blogging. You can check out the video for the original track here. And lastly, the SposhRock remix of Miami Horror Holidays. It’s calmer than the other ones but I like it.

Big start, a new track from SebastiAn Enio which was featured in Ed Banger’s Let the Children Techno. Big because I’ve always been a fan of SebastiAn but he released stuff like once a year. Probably more, I just don’t pay enough attention, what a fan I am. Secondly, Moullinex‘s Meow which is from his new EP Chocolate. It’s great hearing stuff from Moullinex too! Make sure you check out the rest of the EP, great tracks like Tear Club. And lastly, the Tip’s n’ Hype! mash-up of Lifelike So Electric and Gypsy and the Cat Jona Vark. Kind of reminds me why I love Lifelike so much, I really got to get some more of his older remixes up.
