Kele Okereke – “Doubt”

Music for… people who have been depressed about Bloc Party ever since Silent Alarm but prefer to work out that sadness with tripped out house grooves and dance moves that revolve around staring at the floor.

Location: London. Really dark and sweaty clubs.

Future: New album Trick is out October 13th. Know what would be an even better trick? Re-releasing Silent Alarm on vinyl so I can stop considering paying over $100 for it.

Remix Roundup Vol. 50 – 9.1.2011 [Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse, Theophilus London, Active Child, and more… ]

And we’re off. After far too long a break and a road trip from hell, I’m back. Not just in Washington state, but I’m here to blow those sweet little eardrums out.

It’s hard to believe its been a year since Scott and I joined Brandon and took over the remix responsibilities for TBE. Yet here we are a year later, a year wiser, 360 days more disinguished and more handsome than ever.

So, let’s do this.

Remix Roundup Vol. 50.

Keep it Nurdy

♫ Jason Derulo – Don’t Wanna Go Home (SmarterChild Remix) / SmarterChild gave us his amazing remix of City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird” a few weeks back under his other production name Richard Powda’.  This time he drops a floor pleaser sure to melt dance floors around the world.  Fan his Facebook.

♫ Battlekat – Into The Forest (DREAMTRAK DIAMOND SOUND Remix) / Its not often enough we get DDS mixes, but it apears to be worth the wait.  The synth build around the 2:40 mark is genius.  Raise that glass and cheers to the heavens. Read more

Remix Roundup Vol. 21 – 5.6.10 – EPIC!!!!

I feel like we know each other well enough that I can be honest with you, right? Well I gotta say that sometimes I put a remix in one of these roundups that I am not totally in love with but is interesting/unique/whatever. I just want you to know that even though this is the longest roundup ever at 17 tracks this is not one of those cases. All these jams are going off and I am soooo stoked to be delivering them to you! Dive in! The water is hott!

Remix Roundup Vol. 20 – 4.16.10 [Bloc Party, Tegan & Sara, Neon Indian, Brahms…]

♫ Marmaduke Duke – Kid Gloves (Electrically Charged Boy remix) / It’s this remix that inspired me to track down Marmaduke Duke’s jams and if you’re listening then you know why. I can’t stop grooving to Read more

Bloc Party ask that we give them One More Chance

this time things will be different and you’re gonna see

Bloc Party – One More Chance

“One More Chance” huh? Well after A Weekend In The City and then Intimacy one chance is about all Bloc Party gets. Looking to the lyric above it’s almost like Kele is singing to the listener, except it’s our love he should be hoping for. This track is too much of a departure for it to be redemption but I hope they can take this dancey new look and make it last an album. Let’s just hope BP know what they are doing here…

Bury your face in MySpace

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.
