Starting off with another track suggested to me, The Subs The Face of the Planet. They’re a Belgian techno-trance-esque group who make some pretty awesome music. I absolutely love how this song starts off, I actually love it because of how off it is. It evens out though. Second is the Van She Tech remix of Dan The Automator Rapper’s Delight. It’s 2 years old, I think the track is from early 2009, but Van She remixes are timeless. And I can’t miss out on the Alan Braxe remix of Ellie Goulding The Writer reposted from Aerial Noise. Can’t get enough of those two. Also been listening to the new Radiohead album, I will have to report back on it once I’ve listened to it a couple hundred times! Have a good Friday!!

Three words to describe this; fucking sick mix. I haven’t posted a mix in a while, mainly because I haven’t found any great mixes, this CHORDS mixape by MMMatthias totally blew me away. Not to mention that putting a mix on Soundtrack is amazing, what a great way to show off the playlist. Included three tracks from the mixtape I couldn’t not include and following my usual limit. First off is the super funky Lorenz Rhode remix of Strip Steve Breakin’ which, more of this please? Maybe funk is my new thing, although I’m just as in love with the Broke One remix of Stadtkind. It totally reminds me of Justice for some reason, the static sound to the track? Maybe because it’s a pretty clean remix. And lastly, we haven’t heard from these guys in a while, put your hands together for Van She Technologic!! I posted another remix last week, this is another one of Vandroid Master & Slave.
Strip Steve – Breakin (Lorenz Rhode Remix)
Stadtkind – Killer Deffos (Broke One Remix)

Been away from the blog a bit, but I’m happily back. I’m glad to see that my co-writers have filled my spot well while I’ve been gone. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it beforehand, please welcome our newest writer Dexter! Totally four weeks late on that. And excuse my impulse post yesterday, genuinely excited that it was actually a Daft Punk track, but to my disappointment yet sweet surprise, it wasn’t. Although the track was decent.
So I’ve had these tracks sitting on my desktop on my break and they’ve been bothering me every time I’ve landed myself on the desktop to post them. Here they are! First is the Van She Tech from Michael Di Francesco, the guitar/synth player of the group, of Dragonette‘s Pick Up The Phone. I couldn’t help myself because I love Dragonette, completely a guilty pleasure I’ve publicly disclosed. It also makes me go back to the Van She remixes which I haven’t heard any new ones in a while. Stretched out intro, but I’m completely into the main beat that comes in around a minute fourteen. Haven’t heard many awesome retro 80’s beats in a while, this is as close as it gets. Trust Van She to do the deed. In the same vein, Buffetlibre‘s remix of The Antlers. Really cheery sounding remix, lyrics are still kind of sad. And lastly, an original from Death to the Throne. I didn’t ignore your email my friend! It just took a long time for me to get to posting it… first thing that came to mind when I listened to this track was ‘bedazzled’ or ‘bejeweled’.
