Remix Roundup Vol. 12 • 11-6-09


Do I even need to write intros to these things anymore? I’m trying to keep these things leaner and meaner so let’s get on with the show!

♫ Prairie Cartel – Cracktown (Hey Champ Remix) / Umm, did you read who is on this track? Yeah, its fresh, but you knew that already. Bust out the strobe light and get freaky. [original post / more HC]

♫ Fool’s Gold – Surprise Hotel (Mad Decent’s Toadally Krossed Out Remix) / Toad croaking! Yes! Leave it up to Mad Decent (Diplo from Major Lazer, as far as I know) to come up with that stroke of brilliance. [original post]

♫ Major Lazer – Jump Up (Laza Beam Remix) / Speaking of the Major, how’s this jam for a “Jump Up” remix. Nothing mindblowing but it’s hard to mess up the banger-ocity on this track.  [original post]

♫ Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me (Gigamesh Remix – FINAL Version) / Mike Posner is back with a new mixtape full of his stoner hip-hop jams. There is an early version of this Gigamesh remix on it but ignore that business cause this is the version that you are supposed to be loving. If you are listening then you know why. [original post / more Gigamesh]

♫ Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) / It’s A-Trak on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, no surprise it’s a goodie. Better late than never.

♫ Phoenix – Armistice (YACHT Remix) / My favorite new remixers thrown down on this Phoenix jam (from their Wolfgang remix album.) If only they could make their own jams this listenable. [more Phoenix / YACHT]

♫ Passion Pit – Little Secrets (Hey Champ Remix) / Hey Champ put this one through the discofier for a jam worth of your best head bobbing, finger snapping, dance moves.  [more PP / HC]

♫ Just Jack – Doctor Doctor (Fred Falke Remix) / Fred Falke mellows this jam right out, turning it into one of those walking-home-at-twilight jams. [original post / more FF]

♫ Sean Bones – Dancehall (Bodega Girls Remix) / This one gets a bit repetitive but I’ve also found myself zoning out to it.  [original post / more BG]

♫ The Hood Internet – Just A Friendomania (Biz Markie vs Phoenix vs Classixx) / The Hood Internet are back again with this decade-mixing mashup that is inspired, to say the least. [more HI]

    OK first off, I want to tell you that I hate you!!! That's not true, I'm sory, I really love you!! I stumbled across your blog while Hype Machine searching Chester French. that was around 11AM, EDT!!! Here we are at 3PM and I just finished looking at EVERY page in your blog, all the way back to Feb, with your first post! I reasd through my lunch hour! I downloaded through my cigarette breaks!! Your blog has easily become my fave!!! You commentaries are hilarious and appropriate!! Living in Montreal, I even accept your little jabs at our slice of French speaking Heaven. That being said, I just wanted to contact you to tell you that I love the blog and I will be a frequent freeloader, I mean downloader!! Keep them coming!! If you ever thought about venturing up to the Grand Blanc Nord (Great White North), take a bite of this food for thought: Simon LeBon was quoted as saying that “Montreal has the best looking women anywhere in the world”!! And we have Arcade Fire!! Nuff said!!!

    OMG! No! You hear that everyone! Don't listen to the Doctor Doctor
    remix! Its “oldddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd!” Which
    apparently might be similar to “old” and I hear that's bad, like
    Grandma's and rotten cheese. Gross.

    Wow. Thank you XIII, can I call you XIII? It just seems so informal.
    But I guess I feel like I know you now! I was impressed with
    jonathan_UK's diligence but your intensity just stepped up the whole
    game. Seriously though, thanks for all the kind words and support.
    Comments like these mean everything to me and validate all the long
    hours. And I'm glad you don't take my FrenchCanadia bashing seriously
    because a bunch of my family actually lives in Montreal, I was just
    there in September. Bam! That's right. A few TBE posts were even
    written from my Grandpa's basement in Brossard.

    Thanks for finding TBE and now I just hope I can live up to your
    expectations and keep you around. Spread the TBE love and next time
    I'm in Montreal we will all hit up a show or go stalk Chromeo or
