[PREMIERE-MP3] Christopher Norman – “Cult Logic” (Miike Snow Cover)

[soundcloud id=’137821427′]

When I was compiling the list of top songs from the last five years of this music site I knew Miike Snow had to be on it. But anyone alive in 2009 hear their fair share of “Animal” covers & remixes already. Plus, it was “Cult Logic” that always had my top vote on that album. But who would cover it? Who would step up and do this jam justice!? Well, the one and only Christopher Norman, thats who. Christopher continually flies under too many radars as I post jam after jam of his here on TBE. Let hope this awesome cover grabs some more ears leading up to his debut album. It certainly made my day.

[PREMIERE-MP3] Da French Connexion – “Hold On We’re Going Home” (Drake Cover)

[soundcloud id=’137037988′]

Nobody does sex better than Drake and nobody does sexy like The French, so its a natural fit for our friends Da French Connexion to cover the best love song of 2013. Things get a bit darker and haunting, with more grit in the vocals and not much else left resembling the original song. Which is just how we like our covers.

[PREMIERE-MP3] Pr0files – “Song for Zula” (Phosphorescent cover)

[soundcloud id=’137724094′]

Pr0files are the 2013 champs of making heartbreak sexy so when they told me they were covering “Song for Zula” for The Burning Ear 5 Year Anniversary AlbumI knew the results would be wonderful. The original gets a lot more haunting, dark, danceable. You can almost hear the fog.

[PREMIERE-MP3] Scavenger Hunt – “Lost” (Noah Hyde Remix)

[soundcloud id=’137638401′]

When Scavenger Hunt broke onto the scene last fall with “Lost” it suddenly felt like Summer hadn’t left us. This magical remix from longtime TBE favorite Noah Hyde feels like the Summer of 1987 never left us. Hyde adds his featherlight tough to this airtight mood lifter, doing the original more than justice on its first remix (finally!). I’m just proud to have this partnership happen under the banner of the Burning Ear 5 Year Anniversary Album!

[PREMIERE – MP3] Y LUV – “Bloodbuzz Ohio (The National Cover)”

[soundcloud id=’137163024′]

Y Luv have never been afraid to get nasty with an electric guitar and they bring that riffage right up front on this “Bloodbuzz Ohio” cover. It’s a song with a place in all of our hearts and now that place just got a bit more weird. The fog machine is on high and that Lava lamp is kicking out some awesome shapes. And the music… the music is not loud enough. Turn it up!

[PREMIERE-MP3] Rhye – “Open” (Wiley Webb Remix)

[soundcloud id=’136822765′]

Wiley Webb flips things on their head. His remix of Katy Perry’s “Roar” was fearless, turning the formulaic chart topper into a spastic body mover that has been in every DJ set I’ve played all year. Rhye’s 2012 slow burner “Open” is a bit more sacred than “Roar” but Wiley handled it beautifully, adding just enough glitch and haunting groove to give the song a fresh dimension. Wiley calls this remix “even slower, even more sensual, darker, sexier, with more tease, more quiet, more moments of silence, more breath, more sighs, eyes closed, curves, shadows, touch.” I couldn’t agree more.

[PREMIERE – MP3] Manu el Chino – “Midnight City” (Instrumental M83 cover)

[soundcloud id=’134566636′]

There are few songs as iconic and massive as M83’s “Midnight City”. As beloved and significant as the song is to the 5 year history of The Burning Ear, I was still hesitant to offer it for reinterpretation. Its been remixed and covered so wonderfully so many times! Well, get ready for 1 more. France’s Manu el Chino pulled the song apart and pieced back together this instrumental cover that builds slow and steady, barely resembling the original until its already stuck in your head. Turn it up loud and do something in the dark. [sociallocker]
