The 29 Best Remixes of 2009

I don’t know about you but 2009 was the year I fell in live with remixes. Starting TBE opened up my world to so many amazing reinterpretations of both great and not so great songs. Having always been more of a cover song guy this was new territory for me but I dove in headfirst and have been enjoying the ride so far. Good music is a personal thing and messing with great music is even more so. This is very much a subjective list and is based on nothing besides how much I love and respect the work done. Oh, and the numbering system is pretty much bullshit but I had to put them in some kind of order. Anyway, enjoy. I certainly have.

The Pragmatic challenge you to a Deathmatch

The Pragmatic – Deathmatch

The Pragmatic first hit the scene last October with “Circles,” a song that was instantly put on my playlist for that month. This past week saw the release of a full EP (Released for FREE). Five songs that range from the contemplative “Circles” to the frenetic “Deathmatch,” but all thickly coated in crunchy analog synths courtesy of  band member André Allen Anjos (Mr. RAC himself). Don’t let his star status fool you, however. The pragmatic are clearly a collaborative effort and have a very different sound than many of RAC’s remixes. Speaking of, here is RAC member Anndrew Maury’s remix of The Pragmatic’s “Circles.”

Remix Roundup! ∞ Vol. 1

Yo, for real, it’s the weekend and its time to shake your moneymaker (not implying y’all are strippers or whatever). I stumble across a ton of awesome remixes as I surf this information ether-highway of ours. I don’t like giving them dedicated posts cause 1) not everyone is super into remixes and 2) I don’t want to dilute the attention that should be given to new artists. You feel me? I knew you would. So anyway, I am starting another new feature at TBE where I round up some of the sweetest remixes of late and toss ’em at you without any of the usual garnish you find in a normal post. Who knows how often I’ll do it but they wont all be this big, I just had a lot of goodies to share. Anyway, listen, love, download, dance! Just do it after the jump.
