[MP3] OutKast – “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” (Rad Stereo Remix Ft. Spencer Ludwig)

So, we know that OutKast are the business. We know their jam “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” is a classic. We know Rad Stereo deliver the remix goods. We know Spencer Ludwig can lay down some damn fine horns on a track. So let this Monday remix serve as a celebration of all the greatness that we already know rolled into one fine jam that will make this day a bit better and brighter for us all. And the crowd goes wild!

Brand New – “Jesus Christ” (Hasta Remix)

Even though I haven’t seen them live since long before I started The Burning Ear 6 years ago, I am pretty sure Brand New is still the band that I’ve bought tickets to see more than any other band in my life. And I get to see them again in 2 weeks. It will either be wildly euphoric or deeply disappointing. Or, more likely, an roller coaster that flirts with both emotional poles. Either way, this doped up remix of the later catalog Brand New classic “Jesus Christ” is treating me right as I gear up for the big reunion show (me reuniting with my buddy Ted and our old “homies” Brand New, not the band actually reuniting. Although that is kind of happening too since its been so damn long).

Vallis Alps – “Young” + Spencer Ludwig Trumpet Edit

Music for… reaching for those damn headphones and giving your full attention to the beautiful interplay of bass, percussion, guitar and drop dead gorgeous vocals that is happening here. Vallis Alps are working with some truly majestic talent here.

Location: Canberra, Australia + Seattle, WA

Future: Get into the whole EP here. Plus this Spencer Ludwig (Capital Cities, History) trumpet edit below.

Wild Party – “OutRight” + Carousel remix

Music for… people who enjoy big smiles, loose limbs, and friendly mosh pitting. Wild Party are one of the longest loved bands here at TBE and continue to be under appreciated. “OutRight” is just another example of their killer indie-pop prowess off their debut album Phantom Pop. Get into it and then get into Carousel’s remix for a sunnier rump shaking flip on things.

Location: San Antonio, TX

Future: Phantom Pop is out NOW yo.

Patrick Lite – “December” + Matt Simons – “Catch and Release” (Patrick Lite Remix)

Music for… people who have been waiting all week for Friday but before they can even think about socializing, or dancing, or even talking to any-damn-body, they need to chill F out before they FLIP! Enter Patrick Lite and his perfect last name (actually spelled Leijte)which tenderly eases the mind into gentler pastures that can sooth away the tension and get us ready to treat the weekend – and most importantly, ourselves – right.

Location: Netherlands

Future: Better blood pressure. More beautiful jams.

Marcapasos – “Blown Job” + The Avener – “Fade Out Lines” (Marcapasos Remix)

Sounds like… a weird and wonderful trip through a demented forest of circus creatures suffering from Eggnog hangovers. And then the flute… Marcapasos leads with some odd sounds and I’m more than willing to follow.


Future: Dive into this remix below for some smoother grooves, and then his Spotify for more killer remixes and originals, all in their full non-snippet glory!
