[VIDEO] Andrew W. K. – “It’s Time To Party”

10 years late? Or right on time? Either way, it is definitely time to party! And make weird exaggerated noises! And laugh a bit too…

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.

Some real jamaroonies in this batch so get pumped!

The Knocks – Can’t Shake Your Love

Andrew W.K. recently released a mixtape called DAMN! and when I heard a preview of it I was not into it and moved on. Then I stumbled across this track from The Knocks and was like “DAMN!” which is appropriate because apparently it is on DAMN! although I would have never guessed. If the rest of the mixtape has jams like this perhaps I should get it. Anyone? The Knocks are a production duo out of NY and although I don’t see any evidence of an album they have a handful of pretty sweet remixes at their MySpace. I might have to do some digging for the next Remix Roundup

[JustBurnIt!] TBE Presents: I’m A Bulldog – A mix for NYC

60 Seconds in Times Square - 8/21/2006

A native New Yorker said to me yesterday, upon returning from a long absence from his city, “Damn, this city is unstoppable. It never dies.” True. True. While I did not grow up in NYC, I began spending chunks of time here at 3 and always had an affinity for this New York. Although I always said I could never live in such an intense place I ended up living here for two very formative post-college years. On the occasion of my visit to such a seminal city I don’t have pithy words, but I do have a mix tape. A mix tape for NYC. A love letter, a complaint letter, a letter from one man to his former home. Well ok, so maybe it’s not really a letter at all. It’s just a damn mix-tape, a collection of my favorite songs about NYC. Burn it for your subway commute or for your next visit to The Big Apple. Or just download it because you like good music. What are your favorite songs about NYC?

The title is taken from Kyle Andrews’ “Naked In NYC” and reflects the quoted sentiments of the New Yorker above.
