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.

♫ 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

[MP3] TIM KASHER is a guy I’M AFRAID I’M GOING TO have to talk about before you DIE and don’t HERE his new jam

so, i’ll write another chapter, i mean, it’s all i can do, and if my body’s tossed along the craggy rocks, i hope this book is waterproof

♫ Tim Kasher – I’m Afraid I’m Gonna Die Here

If you don’t know Tim Kasher by name, you may know his previous two bands: Cursive and The Good Life. Both came up in the Omaha scene and Tim is one of the Saddle Creek elder statesmen. Cursive’s “The Recluse” (Below) is one of my all time favorite tracks and holds a special place in my 2004. It’s nice to see Tim hasn’t lost his touch, and is equally deft at cranking up the fun with “I’m Afraid”‘s pumping horns, bouncing beat, and frantic handclaps. Between the music and the subject matter, it’s perfectly constructed for a listless Monday return to the office.
