I felt it appropriate to also post Part 1, for the sake of including everything. Not completely sure why the video I posted yesterday is completely different from this Part 2 version, but I guess now you have three mixes?
So I’m back to test the water. That hiatus post should have been put up a year ago, but it really let me rethink things. The blog does not have to be a dedication, but my love for this music is growing. Don’t expect daily posts like before, but I will be here. Unfortunately, less downloadable content, but more discussion about music and newly released albums.
Starting off with the Soulwax remix of Arcade Fire Sprawl II, so much love for this. I love The Suburbs, and a Soulwax remix of a track from that album? Can’t go wrong. Unfortunately this has been sitting on my desktop for months at least; the drawbacks of not posting a lot is you get a lot of backlog. Second is the RAC remix of Escort Starlight. As you will see in this and future posts is, I may be going through a RAC binge. These guys have so much talent and genius, everything they touch is gold. If you remember their remix of Lana Del Rey? I still listen to that on a daily basis. Lastly, the Felix Da Housecat remix of RAC’s Hollywood. Check out the original too. I’m surprised, yet also amazed, that their original music is quite different from their remixes. Expect more...
Arcade Fire – Sprawl II (Soulwax Remix)
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!

First official post from the big T.O., I finally have internet and everything is moved in. This post is more of a chart update, I haven’t had much time to surf around or search through my inbox looking for music. I wish there was an email provider that worked like Hype, anyways, three tracks I couldn’t stop listening to this weekend and yesterday. The Punks Jump Up remix of Miami Horror Moon Theory, haven’t heard any Miami Horror lately, meaning a month or two, but time has been trudging by. Reminds me of the old sounds though, quite nice to hear resurfacing. The Millionyoung remix of Memoryhouse To The Light House, both names I can’t say I’ve ever heard of but I definitely listened to this track at least 15 times today. I just put it on repeat and never got tired of it. And lastly, another group I haven’t heard from in a while, Soulwax. They remixed quite the appropriate track Yeah, Techno! by Paul Chambers.
