Remix Roundup Vol. 22 / 5.20.2010 [A-Trak, Miike Snow, Crystal Castles, Local Natives, Ratatat, …]

Great remixes coming out the wazoo! This roundup sets the record for shortest time since the last one and it’s still bursting with 16 jams! Remixes first, mashups second, zip file at the end… but good times above all!

For more jams or by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!


♫ Miike Snow – Billie Holiday (LightsoverLA remix) / Yes! Yes! Yes! It had been waay too long since we had a Miike Snow remix and now we get one for the great bonus track “Billie Holiday!” It’s like going to a rave in the cockpit of a spaceship going warp speed!

♫ Crystal Castles – Vietnam (Lightsoverla remix) / Woah LightsoverLA, slow down with the banging remixes! I kinda can’t handle too many epic tracks at once. This one is like going to a rave in a burning haunted house. That flaming zombie is windmilling!

♫ Crystal Castles – Celestica (Clockwork Remix) / “Celestica” get’s pulled down from the clouds a bit as it gets pummeled with all sorts of heavy synths and grinding bass. It’s gonna be hard not to pump a fist if this comes on in the club.

♫ Gorillaz – Superfast Jellyfish (Don Diablo Remix) / Don Diablo is baaaack! And not a moment too soon! This is just the remix I needed to put something by Gorillaz into rotation around here. This is what the album should have sounded like!

♫ The Chemical Brothers – Swoon (Don Diablo Remix) / Don Diablo is still heeeere! And thank goodness! Lights off and volume up, this is something I can get down to. This shit takes off around the 3 minute mark so wear a headband to hold back that sweat!

♫ Local Natives – Wide Eyes (Suckers Remix) / Aside from removing the verses, Suckers have done the right thing by not messing with the original too much. A little crunch and texture here and there but otherwise just another piece of beauty from Local Natives that still has the great ‘Ahhh AAAAhhhhh’s.

♫ Ra Ra Riot – Each Year (Absofacto Remix) / Oh Ra Ra Riot, where are you? What are you doing? When am I going to have more of your great music? I just miss you, that’s all.

♫ Phantogram – Mouthful of Diamonds (Alan Wilkis Remix) / Alan nails it on this one, grabbing the original and running with it straight to funky town. Pan flutes are mixed with gurgling bloops and there is even a hip hop sample or two. This the jam that I want to play while setting up for a party.

♫ Wolf Gang – Back to Back (The Soundmen Remix w/ P.SO) / The Soundmen bring on rapper P.SO on their rework of the latest Wolf Gang jam and it’s working for me! A great jam to play while cleaning up that party.

♫ Goldfrapp – Rocket (Penguin Prison Remix) / The easily forgettable original gets a little more meat on it’s bones courtesy of up-and-comer Penguin Prison. The whole thing is a bit darker and perfect for a night drive to an illicit rendezvous.

♫ Matt Van Schie – Journey (Memory Tapes Version) / One of the guys from Van She has a solo album coming out and Memory Tapes has done is magic on the single. Dark, ominous, eerie, and perfect for your next sunset pool party!


♫ A-Trak – Trizzy Turnt Up / DJ extraordinaire A-Trak has a new mixtape of mashup magic out. This opening banger has been rocking me for a bit now and it should be rocking you too. I’m halfway through the mixtape now and it’s hot as hell. I love this style of 2 or three tracks at a time mashup so much better then the overly-ADD Girl talk. Get on this. It’s FREE!

♫ Dave Wrangler – Party With Children on My Block (Scarface x RATATAT) / Since Ratatat gave up remixing hip-hop we can thank  Dave Wrangler for taking over their steez on this great mashup. It just works. Bang it.

♫ Jay-Z – 99 Problems (Ballard Remix) feat. The Dap Kings / Sometimes the simplest remix is the most effective. Here we’ve got Jay’s vocals over the music of The Dap Kings and I can’t think of anything that could make this better. Kick back with a frosty beverage and soak it all in, instruments, lyrics, and all. Fantastic.

♫ The Hood Internet – (This Shit Was) All I Know [Drake x Free Energy] / The Hood Internet are on point. It’s what they do.

♫ The White Panda – Drake & Diane / I’ve never heard of The White Panda before but Audio Muffin tipped me off to this Drake x John Mellencamp mashup and I’m on board so far. Let’s bridge that generation gap!

    Brandon, you cannot miss. I'm going to partying to this stuff until… well, until your next remix round up.

    The White Panda does really great stuff. Check out his “What You Know About Little Secrets” (Passion Pit vs TI) and “Hot and Cold Rain” (Katy Perry vs Fat Joe).
