Night Drive – “Rise and Fall” + “Rise and Fall (Classixx remix)” // Kelly Tunstall & Ferris Plock

Five minutes after I switched on “Rise and Fall”, I came to having turned off all the lights in my apartment and created a full-scale light show with every glowing object I owned. I either need help or more lights, and I’m leaning heavily towards the latter.

‘Rise and Fall’ is the first single from Night Drive’s forthcoming debut album, out June 16th on Roll Call Records.

Don’t miss the excellent and funky remix from Classixx, which spins the original from driving synth-pop to groovy nu disco.

Classixx – “Holding On”

Classixx - Hold On

i been… i been, i been…

Classixx are most known to me for remixes but their slow venture into original track territory has been a pleasantly solid one (ahem, RAC…) “Holding On” is a slippery nu-disco slice of perfection with all kinds of sweet instrumentation shimmying and shaking just under the surface. Horns, drums, synths, a knee-bending bass line, and lyrics that don’t require much brain power. Hello weekend!

Brandon’s Digest Vol. 14 – 10.21.2010 [Hot Chip, RAC, Penguin Prison, Foals, Kisses, Duck Sauce, Temper Trap, and more!]

Photo by Daniel GreeneIn my never ending quest to make these roundups leaner and meaner this post was supposed to be onl 8 songs deep. Then I started putting everything together and it was one “Oh, shit! What about….” after another. Anyway, here is another remix beast for your weekend pleasure. Some real jamaroonies in this batch so get pumped!

Remix Roundup Vol. 12 • 11-6-09

JerseyCarousel

Do I even need to write intros to these things anymore? I’m trying to keep these things leaner and meaner so let’s get on with the show!

♫ Prairie Cartel – Cracktown (Hey Champ Remix) / Umm, did you read who is on this track? Yeah, its fresh, but you knew that already. Bust out the strobe light and get freaky. [original post / more HC]

♫ Fool’s Gold – Surprise Hotel (Mad Decent’s Toadally Krossed Out Remix) / Toad croaking! Yes! Leave it up to Mad Decent (Diplo from Major Lazer, as far as I know) to come up with that stroke of brilliance. [original post]

♫ Major Lazer – Jump Up (Laza Beam Remix) / Speaking of the Major, how’s this jam for a “Jump Up” remix. Nothing mindblowing but it’s hard to mess up the banger-ocity on this track.  [original post]

♫ Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me (Gigamesh Remix – FINAL Version) / Mike Posner is back with a new mixtape full of his stoner hip-hop jams. There is an early version of this Gigamesh remix on it but ignore that business cause this is the version that you are supposed to be loving. If you are listening then you know why. [original post / more Gigamesh]

♫ Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) / It’s A-Trak on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, no surprise it’s a goodie. Better late than never.

♫ Phoenix – Armistice (YACHT Remix) / My favorite new remixers thrown down on this Phoenix jam (from their Wolfgang remix album.) If only they could make their own jams this listenable. [more Phoenix / YACHT]

♫ Passion Pit – Little Secrets (Hey Champ Remix) / Hey Champ put this one through the discofier for a jam worth of your best head bobbing, finger snapping, dance moves.  [more PP / HC]

♫ Just Jack – Doctor Doctor (Fred Falke Remix) / Fred Falke mellows this jam right out, turning it into one of those walking-home-at-twilight jams. [original post / more FF]

♫ Sean Bones – Dancehall (Bodega Girls Remix) / This one gets a bit repetitive but I’ve also found myself zoning out to it.  [original post / more BG]

♫ The Hood Internet – Just A Friendomania (Biz Markie vs Phoenix vs Classixx) / The Hood Internet are back again with this decade-mixing mashup that is inspired, to say the least. [more HI]

Remix Roundup /// Vol. 8 – Reflect & Unwind

I can’t believe it’s August already. I can’t believe TBE is almost 6 months old. I can’t believe this is the 8th roundup of remixes. I can’t believe you are still reading this. OK, now I really can’t believe it. I cant. Seriously, nothing you say can make me believe you are still reading this. It’s called belief dude, it’s personal, I don’t have to explain or justify it. I mean, yeah, I guess if I saw you reading it I would ‘believe’ but that’s not even the point. The point is that there are so many fresh remixes down there and you are still reading this garbage. Some people, man, some people.
