Regular Day Not At Work


Easter Weekend! We get it off here anyways, not sure about the US. Someone I know who goes to university in the US said he still had classes. Let’s start off the day with some of The Bloody Beetroots and their remix of Vitalic Second Lives. I don’t normally post The Bloody Beetroots because their area of dance music I don’t typically enjoy, but I really liked this track. So I made an exception damn it. Second is The Twelves remix of Two Door Cinema Club which I’m four days late on posting. I got to add them on my RSS reader or something to stay up to date on them. As usual from The Twelves, totally the right sound I love, I expect nothing less! And lastly, another Ha! Yes mash-up, this time of Notorious B.I.G. Juicy and The xx Intro. I know, there’s been so many B.I.G. and The xx mash-ups lately that you’re probably sick of it. I was too, but I heard this and was pleasantly surprised. So before you comment about how disgusted you are before you even listen to the track, give it a chance.

The Twelves @ Essential Mix


An early Merry Christmas to all! A late Happy Hanukkah. Happy Kwanzaa? Whatever other holidays I may have missed. It’s also close to the end of 2009 and I’ll do my damned best in compiling an end of the year list, but no promises. This year has been rough. And what better way to celebrate the holidays with an epic non-holiday related week late mix. It’s epic, so it qualifies for the holiday post.

It’s been a very long time since I posted anything from Essential Mix or really even listened to it. I used to dedicated every Friday night (or Monday morning at school/work if I missed it) to Essential Mix before heading out. Being 5 hours behind here, it’s not post-club… it’s pre-club madness. This I couldn’t pass up though, The Twelves at Essential Mix from last Friday. Honestly two hours of greatness. I noticed some in-mix remixes which I hope they intend on pursuing later on, and I also see some old goodies in there. Oh the nostalgia. And honestly, it’s been a while since I’ve heard such a smooth mix, none of that repeat beat change shit. The Twelves is legit. Included two tracks today, the primary one being The Twelves of Fever Ray’s Seven. Fever Ray being one of the artists that deserves more attention on this blog. And the DFA dub of The Rapture.
