NEW RELEVENT JAMS
â™«Â Frank Ocean – DreamkillaÂ / New (or maybe old) Frank Ocean produced by the Midi Mafia who also did one of the best songs of the year so far, “Swim Good.” Butter.
â™«Â Boots Electric – Boots Electric ThemeÂ / The first single from Eagles Of Death Metal’s frontman Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes. Hmm… I wanna love it but it’s just no EODM track.
â™«Â Wale – Lacefrontin’Â / Remember when this guy was supposed to be the big thing? Just not feeling it. So much going on here but kinda nothing going on.
â™«Â Star Slinger – Dutchie CourageÂ / Star Slinger bringing the summer heat! Kinda a remix since he samples “Pass The Dutchie” so heavily but whatever.
â™«Â Theophilus London – Why Even Try (RAC Remix)Â / You don’t need more than 3 notes to know RAC has done this jam sweet justice. While most remixers go for big dance bangers or weirdo style-flips, RAC always does his own thing, simply using known elements to create a whole new beautiful structure.
â™«Â Jeremy Glen – New Life (Amtrac Remix)Â / Amtrac coming through! Such a bigger and better song than theÂ original. Jeremy Glen should get Amtrac to produce all his stuff.
â™«Â Kings of Leon – Sex On Fire (Al Fingers’ Juicy Remix)Â / We shouldn’t be able to tolerate another “Sex on Fire” remix but I’m totally on board with what Al Fingers has done here.
â™«Â Urban Cone – Urban Photograph – Lucas Nord RemixÂ / Like a misty sunrise you are gonna want to be patient for this one. And then go nuts. You will know when.
â™«Â Chromeo – When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair Remix)Â / Did I mention Chromeo absolutely killed it at Opener Festival? Cause, umm…yeah. Like, woah. I leave you to think about how you should have been there as this loaf of funkernickel rises in your ear oven.
â™«Â Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks (Gigamesh remix)Â / Don’t know how this jamerino slipped under my radar! Gigamesh slays per usual, except this time his weapon is a lemonade powered hand-clap machine. Add it to the list!
â™«Â Goldroom – Morgan’s Bay (Charles I Remix)Â / Just a different spin on this underrated summer jam. Like riding an 8-Bit yacht on 64-bit seas. Or something.
â™«Â Lil Wayne – Stuntin’ Like My Daddy (FAMUEL Remix)Â / Always gonna love a good “Stuntin” remix. Drive fast!
â™«Â The Weeknd – The Party (Chi Duly Remix) ft. Silver MedallionÂ / Apparently Chi Duly is doing a whole Weeknd remix project and so far I’m OK with that. Trading a bit of grit for gold works on my summer evenings.
â™«Â Florence & The Machine – Postcards From Italy [DJ Metric & Endress Remix]Â / A great remix of a great cover. Don’t think about it, just feel that low end pulse.
â™«Â The-Dream – 1+1 (BeyoncÃ© Demo)Â / Not really a cover since the Beyonce track was written The-Dream and was originally his demo called “Nothing But Love.” Which version you feeling more?
â™«Â Mr Little Jeans – The Suburbs (Arcade Fire Cover)Â / Familiar.Â Haunting. Ballsy. I like it.
â™«Â Derek Allen – Spirits In The Material World (cover)Â /Â PotentiallyÂ more Dubstep Roundup material but I like this take on the Police classic. No surprise though, Derek is a long-time Diplo co-producer at Mad Decent.
â™«Â D.Veloped – The Childish GamesÂ / Right off the victory lap of one of the best mashups of 2011 so far D.Veloped has got this Childish Gambino sampling jam with bits from Adele, Phoenix, and many more friends for this soulful jam.
â™«Â Vico Ono – Somewhere Only Planes Know (Wiz Khalifa vs. Keane)Â / Good to see Keane getting some love.
“funkernickel”, “lemonade powered hand-clap machine”, “8-Bit yacht on 64-Bit seas”! So awesome!
RAC link not working for me…
Brandon One of your BEST!!!! Keep them Coming
Haha, thanks Scott. Just trying to keep myself entertained.
Well that is just not cool. It’s working for me, though so I dunno what to tell you. Maybe try again.
Thanks! Oh, they will keep coming…
Like the Sex is on Fire remix, gotta admit my mind kept waiting to hear Biggie come in with “It was all a Dream!”Â lol
We love Frank Ocean! We been listening to him since he was known
Breaux which was Frank Ocean’s previous alias. Shhh. Don’t tell
anyone:) Keep up the great work! We look forward to checking out your
other jams and remixes.
haha, yeah, that would have been cool
Yeah, I read about that. I can’t wait for more FOcean!
The Gigamesh remix for Pumped up Kicks is SICK! Can’t wait to bump that all over my city. Check out Helena beat! I can’t wait to hear those remixes.Â http://vevo.ly/rnU4uS

Star Slinger brings it again. Love that track!
