The Weeknd - Echoes Of Silence

[QUICKIE/REMIX] The Weeknd – ECHOES OF SILENCE (w/ “Montreal” & “Echoes of Silence” [The Lost Boys Remix])

happiness exists when you don’t know a thing, so i hope you don’t think this song is about you

♫ The Weeknd – Montreal

MJ lives & is even more fucked up than we thought. Maybe Weeknd’s best but LP 3 didn’t grab me like the first. I’m really curious for next.

[Quickies are mini-reviews that can fit into a 140 character tweet. They are of albums that people already know of but perhaps are curious about our take on it. What did you think of the disc?]

♫ The Weeknd – Echoes of Silence (The Lost Boys Remix)

I wasn’t going to post about the newest Weeknd album at all since the thing didn’t resonate with me much for whatever reason but then this Lost Boys remix made for a easy excuse to throw my two cents in the ring. But really, ignore my two cents. Focus on this remix. It adds just the right amount of spark to illuminate the dark hollows of the Weekend’s original.

Remix Roundup Vol. 58 – 12.21.2011 [Dada Life, Fleetwood Mac, Yelle, Dada LIfe, and more…]

Holy hickory haystacks!  Major problems on the internet connection frontier today.  If you follow me on the twitter, you know that I was trying to have this up in the AM.  Where is M.I.A. and Flux Pavilion when you need them?

Anyway, we’ve got the holidays smacking us in our faces right now, which means the year is pretty much over,… Soo I just put together a steaming pile of bangers for your end of the year listening pleasure.  Open your ears and take these glorious gems to bed with you.

Attention: For those in the Seattle area- I’m throwing a huge party at The Tacoma Art Museum on New Years Eve.  You can find all the info you need HERE.  Warning:  Bass slaps in that face of yours will be frequent.  WORLD!!

♫ Gym Class Heroes (featuring Neon Hitch) – Ass Back Home (SmarterChild & Oxymorrons Remix) / Pretty impressive, especially when you consider that this tune is a collaberatoin of all pilot artists.  Don’t blink, SmarterChild is starting to look like a heavyweight.

Remix Roundup Vol. 48 – 7.22.2011 [CSS, Theophilus London, Yelle, Wolf Gang and more…]

We,Joel and Scott, welcome you back.  This time we bring you Remix Roundup Vol. 48.  Damn, that’s a lot.  We can’t believe we’re almost at 50.  Time flies…, too fast these days.  On that note, its time to play a little catch up.

Below we have a mix of mostly new, but some tunes we just missed out on.  Hope you’re hungry, because this is going to take you up a waste size.  Be smart though…  No dancing for at least thirty minutes after ingesting this madness.

Get Nurdy!

[PLAYLIST] The Best REMIXES of 2011 – Part 1 (Jan-June)

Strap on your shufflin’ shoes and make sure to stretch ’cause this list is an unmerciful messenger delivering jams of the highest quality. Some of these remixes have been banned by certain unenlightened governments for igniting dance parties and group high-fives so share with care.

This edition is chock full of TBE Remix alums and a few newbies shaking things up. Everyone’s favorite, Passion Pit, nab two spots while newbie Star Slinger clinches two more. In a massive non-surprise, RAC takes a heavy slice of this pie with a full 5 slots. Hey, it’s not my fault the guy is a genius. Stay tuned to the number 1 spot to see which brand-newcomers got the number 1 spot and then make sure to leave your thoughts and additions in the comments.

25 – ♫ Britney Spears – Till The World Ends (DOCTOR ROSEN ROSEN Remix) / This isn’t so much “Till The World Ends” but more “After The World Ended.” The Britney comeback party starter gets a post-apocalyptic haunted castle treatment with the “oooh oooh”s providing a completely different effect..

24 – ♫ Miami Horror – Holidays (Butcher Blades Recreational Disaster Remix) / Best name for a remix.

23 – ♫ Jump Jump Dance Dance – Modern Eyes (Vindata Remix) / Why doesn’t this remix have it’s own video of Read more
