[PLAYLIST] The Best REMIXES of 2012 – Part 2 (July-Dec)

TBE-Best-of-2012-Remixes

 

Man oh man. Could we be in a better world for fun remixes of great songs? Some of the old guard has been slacking in quality lately (RAC, where you at?) but new talent is cropping up in droves. Cyril Hahn practically made his name from that Destiny’s Child remix. Noah Hyde is on the map with amazing work. Manu el Chino nabs his second spot of 2012. Too many great tracks. Get on it for the weekend and check out all the bands and remixers you may have missed through the years. And especially listen to that Years & Years remix. What a genre flip. Mmmm…..

Be sure to catch all the 2012 “BEST OF” lists!

[REMIX] Aretha Franklin – “One Step Ahead” (DiscoTech edit)

i know i can’t afford to stop for one moment, ‘cos i’m just out of reach of your fingertips

Aretha is an undisputed champ and I think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone disputing the power of DiscoTech (half of which is Gigamesh. Nuff said.) This classic is handled brilliantly, retaining it’s original glory while adding a few updated funky bits. For the wedding dance playlist of your favorite indie music snob.

UPDATE: This is not DiscoTech, it is Disco Tech, a guy from Sweden. Maybe he will be filling the void in their absence recently…
