Remix Roundup Vol. 70 – Approx Feb 2013

100-bolt-paddedYup, another “better late than never” roundup coming at you straight from arctic February. But turn that frown upside down because it is Friday and you have the tunes to do the night justice. With warmer weather comes looser limbs. Move them.

Remix Roundup Vol. 56 – 11.23.2011 [Justice, CSS, The xx, M83 and more…]

Whats up big pimpity pops?  Welcome back.

Its Thanksgiving and time to break away from your ever so important Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Stumble-upon, Myspace (insert joke), Spotify and all things in the cyber-world.  Finally, take a minute and give thanks to the important things in your life like the Family, Happiness, Food and of course The Burning Ear.  You might be thinking “gee Joel, you kinda just contradicted yourself there with the whole cyber thing”.  Well,… I think you’re a contradiction.

Enjoy!

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!

Joel & Scott’s Top 50 Remixes of 2010

Welcome back party peeps.  We, Joel & Scott are proud to bring you our Top 50 Remixes of 2010.

Totally wish we could think of some rad shite to introduce this wicked cool Top 50 list with, but we’re both having some serious writers block here.  Typically in this situation we would just drink or get some sort of major caffeine stimulation (often both).  Not gonna lie, we enjoyed the hell out of our super strong energy/alcoholic beverages, but thanks to Central Washington University students the shite is outlawed.  Please, we’d love to hear your side of the story.   Anyway,… by now if you are a TBE follower you know that we are two dudes (Joel & Scott) originally from Seattle that just love to get Nurdy’ and melt our faces on that dirty d-floor.   And yeah, remixes to us are what platinum haired Bunnies are to Hugh Hefner.

Lastly, you might think its a little late for a “Best of List”, but that was a deliberate move on our part.  We at TBE don’t believe in a  “Best of List” before the New Year and we really wanted to take our time.  2010 was an incredible year for DJs and remix artists around the world.  Our top two remixes this year may very well be two of our top remixes of all time.  Its amazing to see the support DJs are now getting around the globe.  Don’t forget that they’re the ones that keep us dancing.

Keep dancing all, and if any of the following songs change your life YOU’RE WELCOME.  (Don’t forget to check out our Top 10 Dubstep Remixes of 2010)

Remix Roundup Vol. 36 – 1.14.2011 [STAR SLINGER, ALI LOVE, GRUM, ARCADE FIRE, and more… ]

Welcome back to TBE our fellow Nurds’.

Its been two weeks, but like always, Joel & Scott are back to present Remix Roundup Vol. 36.

Listen party peeps, in 10 we were supposedly “ready for a good night“, but let us tell you something little bit different for 11.  In 11, we are going to create that good night.   Why? Cuz this one goes to 11 and its  time for some funky, dazzling, crunk, promiscuous, weird shite to go down.  And, if that aint enough to motivate you.  The apocalypse is approaching scary fast these days…

In 11, we forget the fly whips and go with fly chicks, and if your down… you might come to TBE to check out some wicked ass hits.

OHH YEAHZ.  ENJOY BITCHES!
