/// FOR MORE REMIX GOODNESS CHECK THESE POSTS

Best Remixes 2011 – PART 2 (July-Dec)

Joel & Scotts Top 50 Remixes 2010 

More links at the bottom! ///

Ok, so we’ve got some remixes here! I have to say, I haven’t been blown away by a lot of remixes this year. A handful have been on repeat but most others have just lasted a few listens. Anyway, RAC is back in full effect, basically dropping pure gold. Don Diablo is doing his thing, turning so-so tracks into epicness. The Soundmen are back with another super-infectious remix. The Hood Internet (and Jay-Z??) are dominating the little Mashup section at the bottom. Some familiar names, some fresh faces, all great jams. I’m going to leave these without comments for now because frankly, they don’t need them and I want to get this list out in time for Friday night! Rock on! Read more

Remix Roundup: 10-21-09

skull252As the Remix Roundups enter double digits I decided to drop the incremental titles and go for a more archive-friendly date format. You will thank me someday. About this collection of hot remixes? You can thank me now.

♫ The Very Best – Julia (Javelin Re-do) / This is one of the best remixes I’ve heard in a while. Javelin takes one of the weaker tracks off of TVB’s fantastic album and completly rips it up, turning “Julia” in to a full throttle fist-pumper. [more The Very Best]

♫ The Gossip – Love Long Distance (Fake Blood Remix) / I haven’t even heard the original version of this song yet but i’m worried that after this I am just going to be disappointed. So far The Gossip’s remixes have treated me better than their originals. [more Gossip/FB]

♫ Chester French – She Loves Everybody (Pance Party Remix) / Read more

TBE Exclusive! DJ be and the Slow Burn Summer mix

Big moves are being made over at TBE HQ and one of them is this, The Slow Burn Summer mix, our first DJ mix by local favorite “DJ be” who was kind enough to blend up a fresh-to-death 60 minutes of straight fire. Put in on your iPod, cell phone, CDR, or whatever and then slip on your shimmy-shoes.

The mix is a single file because this thing is too fresh to be skipping tracks. I have, however, embedded a timecoded track-list in the lyrics section of the ID3 tag so you can at least know where you are at (or jump to your favorite part, if necessary). Let me know what you think of this method.

Chester French – C’mon (On My Own)

Spin Magazine hyped Chester French as a band to watch this year and that their debut LP Love The Future would be “Out this spring.” That was in February…of 2008. Yeah, well a third of the way into 2009 and we finally have it. When a band gets that kind of hype and then take that damn long it’s always a dangerous game. Will CF live up to their signed by Pharell, Harvard graduate, Spin heads-up hype? Will the album be as good as “She Loves Everybody” and the other few long-leaked tracks? Will anyone even care anymore? Well, I care, but that’s what I do. I care about you, and I’m touched to say I care about Chester French. Love The Future is not perfect, but it definitely adds a few more excellent tracks to the CF canon. There is a little too much self-indulgent noodling but overall the album is redeemed by standouts like “C’mon,” “Bebe Buell,” “Beneath The Veil,” and “Neal.” And don’t forget the recently posted excellent RAC remix of “She Loves Everybody.”

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.
