Where have I been the last two weeks? On break, I’m taking a real summer holiday for the first time since I started this blog, not that it isn’t a pleasure to post music I love for you guys! Unfortunately this summer isn’t exactly a holiday, I’ve got work 9-5 or around that anyways cause I’m always late. So the little time I have off I’m going to spend it exploring the new city. Not to mention finding good music these days in the genres I’m looking at seems to be getting harder.
New writers? I don’t know what’s with me and new writers cause it’s always the same deal. It takes me weeks to train them so they can get used to the blogs functions as it’s pretty weird on Sundtrak, and then they post for a good couple months which is really nice then they all but disappear. Gone! So it’s hard to weigh out if it’s worth spending that couple weeks worrying about another writer vs them taking a bit of the pressure off me to post for a couple months before they leave. This is what it feels like to run a retail or fast food joint and hire high school students! I’m not a corporation. I love you old writers! Was sad to see you all go.
I do have a post for you today though and with school right around the corner I might have some more coming your way soon. Starting off with the Midnight Conspiracy remix of Crystal Castles Vietnam. They actually already remixed a CC track Crimewave a while back, this one’s great for the track. That sound is what I always have a weakness for. A great remix from Glasnost of Tiga What You Need. And yes, another remix of Two Door Cinema Club by The Chaotic Good. We’ve heard a lot of remixes of this track, but what are you gonna do about it? It’s a great track to remix.

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.

I decided to post a few alterations on Two Door Cinema Club‘s What You Know. The track itself is pretty amazing considering they’re coming from the spur of indie bands born in the UK and Ireland. It’s hard to sound unique in that vague genre these days, but these guys did a decent job at it. It’s that that guitar riff and I really can’t get enough of it. Starting off with a mash-up of the song with Down AKA Kilo Lean like a Cholo of course by The White Panda. What other mash-up artist? Also the remixes by Redlight and LightsoverLA which give the song that extra “umph”.
