Remix Roundup Vol. 51 – 9.13.2011 [Madonna, Dada Life, Matt & Kim, The Drums, and more…]

Welcome back TBE vets and greetings, bonjour, buenas noches, shalom, what’s happening TBE infants.  First, we’re grateful for everyone of you.  Second, we have a slight change in the Remix Roundup methodology I wanted to let you know about.

Previously, we had been working from a Friday bi-weekly format that many of you have come very a accustomed to.  But, as awesome as those Friday roundups were, keeping to that schedule sometimes proved to be quite difficult.  Not to mention resulting in many Roundups being far too large.   I decided to clean things up.

The New Philosophy is simple… I will post a new R-R everytime I have 15 new TBE worthy remixes.  There is no set schedule.  Does this mean I will post less often???  No, actually its quite the contrary.  If you want to stay up to date on all remix roundups, then follow me on twitter @JoelAlbers

Anyway, enough with the serious talk…  Remix Roundup Vol. 51 is about to blow your head off.  PUSSSHH PLAY.

♫ Madonna – Like A Prayer (Viceroy + Alkamyme Remix) / I’ve been looking for a decade for a quality remix of this song.  The search is over.

♫ Dada Life – Fight Club Is Closed (Religion Remix) / This one puts a huge mischievous grin on my face.  This is what I call a 4-On-The-Floor BANGER.  This may just coast its way into that all important Top 50 remixes of 2011 list.

I hope you are in desperate need of some fresh melodies, because this roundup will dig in your brain 26 chunes deep.

With more and more submissions its getting tough to keep up, but I’ve been burning the midnight oils to bring you RR Vol. 49.  (Almost 50!) Don’t forget TBE was one of the first to bring remixes in the roundup format.  Don’t forget to show us some love and as always GET NURDY as all hell.

♫ Calvin Harris – Feel So Close (TABS Bootleg Remix) / I have a hard time seeing anyone topping  this TABS rework of “Feel So Close”.  This is the kind of remix that puts a fat grin on my face and a wiggle in my hips.

♫ Pendulum – The Island (Madeon remix) / Madeon is a 16 year old producer from France,… a wait, 16?!  Are you F’n kidding???  This kid, ain’t a kid at all.  Dude is a pro.  Props.

Remix Roundup Vol. 43 – 4.29.2011 [LYKKE LI, MOBY, FOSTER THE PEOPLE, THE KLAXONS and more… ]

If you are an avid TBE follower you may have noticed we have had some hackers on our site lately.  So, we thought we would let you know we’ve hired some robot ninjas to judo chop the shit out if them.  Oh, you didn’t hear?  Malware Ninjas to the funking rescue!  They have laser beams, flying baby space saucers (just like the movie Battery), boob guns, and really… anything your imaginative mind could ever muster. They are now here to stay and solve any issue TBE may ever encounter.  For now, in this thing we call “the mean time”, enjoy our latest edition of our Remix Roundups.  Annnnd, by the wayss, we are experimenting with some new graphics from our local Austin friend Danielle Villarreal.

Brandon’s TBE Digest 18 – 1.18.2011 [Passion Pit, Kanye West, Big K.R.I.T., RAC, Das Racist, BRAHMS, Kid Cudi, and more!]

It’s a new year and a lot of good stuff piled up over the holidays. Considering it’s the 18th Digest, today is the 18th (close enough…), and I have 18 tracks, I think this is some kind of perfect Digest or something. Dig in. But really, dig. There are some real gems in the mix down there.

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ Passion Pit – All These Trees / Passion Pit drop a new one through American Express ZYNC. I keep waiting for the song to start but it ends up being all build, no climax. Still nice to hear our boys back in the mix.

♫ BRAHMS – Add It Up / New BRAHMS track isn’t my favorite of theirs but I have to say, seeing them at The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festval last month was a Read more
