STOP! If you haven’t read Part 1 which features #60-41 then do that first. Besides all the great jams in there, it is where I wrote all the sentimental self-congratulatory stuff so pay your respects, man.

Songs are pretty amazing things. It’s magical that such a small thing can be so powerful. In the blink of an eye a song can make you smile, dance, cry, think, laugh, etc. These are the ones that did all those things for me the second half of 2011.Â Read more

Butcher Blades/ crush it again. This time Australia’s finest put us on a tropical submarine crewed by naval ducks on a mission to stay sane! We get to join in on an aquatic battle of sonic proportions that includes lots of the Blades/’ high drama. It’s big, it’s dangerous, and it’s emotional. Buckle up.
If the TBE 2011 Summer Mega-Mix taught us anything its that summer isn’t over until we say it is! This Tropical Assault mix is our final battle against the forces of autumn, seemingly lurking at every turn these past months. We will not down with out a fight and thankfully there are 14 finely tuned weapons at our disposal, poised and ready to be unleashed on any ear feeling the slightest bit of frost. So throw back the curtains, turn up the speakers, bask in that fantastic artwork, and let’s take summer by it’s horns.
Whereas the Mega-Mix flowed through genres like a summer’s day’s variety of cocktails, this mix is a more hardened and focused thing, culling the collective forces of all things tropical. Whether it be steel drums, bongos, sunny synths, or just a splash of sea water, these songs share that certain tropical something that has been infecting my ears so much lately. Summer on! Read more

Just when you thought Mondays couldn’t get any worse, they get awesome! New Butcher Blades/! The criminallyÂ under-appreciatedÂ Australian duo that one fan recently called the “lovechild of Justice and The Lion King.” Brilliant. “Jigsaw Limbs” is another brilliant example of their melding of the electronic and the organic into one seamless beast that takes over my speakers with each beat. As always, the music is incredibly cinematic, conjuring a myriad epic battle scenes/dance parties in my mind. Can we get some high-tech fan videos going here?
Continue the Butcher Blades/ love with their remix of LA’s Health below. And then grab up all the other jams they are offering free at their various sites. Together we can battle the end of summer in grand fashion! Read more
Strap on your shufflin’ shoes and make sure toÂ stretchÂ ’cause this list is an unmerciful messenger delivering jams of the highest quality. Some of these remixes have been banned by certainÂ unenlightenedÂ governmentsÂ for igniting dance parties and group high-fives so share with care.
This edition is chock full of TBE Remix alums and a few newbies shaking things up. Everyone’s favorite, Passion Pit, nab two spots while newbie Star Slinger clinches two more. In a massive non-surprise, RAC takes a heavy slice of this pie with a full 5 slots. Hey, it’s not my fault the guy is a genius. Stay tuned to the number 1 spot to see which brand-newcomers got the number 1 spot and then make sure to leave yourÂ thoughtsÂ and additions in the comments.
