Brandon’s TBE Digest 17 – 12.23.2010 [The Get Up Kids, Bon Iver, Tokyo Police Club, Local Natives, Lykke Li, Chromeo, …]

It’s Christmas time. I’m in a cabin in the woods. My stolen internet connection is worthless. My family is going through some stuff. I love you all but I’m just not able to give this post all the detailing that it deserves. I hope that you are too busy with your own holiday festivities to care and can just kick back and enjoy this collection of jams for the interesting mix that they are. Dive in and enjoy. I know I’ve been.

[MP3] STARSMITH has a track WE can LEAVE on the stereo as we drift into TONIGHT

♫ Starsmith – We Leave Tonight

Today I will be on a plane. The clouds will seems to float by as I cruise towards the states, towards family, towards old friends. This is the track that I will be listening to as thoughts of the things to come swirl through my brain. It will be perfect. It is perfect. And Starsmith made it. A delicate gleam of piano driven sunshine that reaches across the sky to slip past your ears and right into your heart.

The man known for producing Ellie Goulding and remixing everyone from Passion pit to Lady Gaga is working on his debut LP scheduled for early next year. Other tracks we’ve heard so far are highly danceable electro-disco. It’s great to see he can handle his softer side with such grace.

♫ Trophy Wife- Microlite (Zen Death Squad Remix) / Brandon intruduced us all to Trophy Wife back in September.  He also featured the acoustic version of “Microlite” in his TBE Digest.  This week we’re blowing things up with this explosive remix by London’s Zen Death Squad.

♫ Ellie Goulding- Salt Skin (Azedia Remix) / There is a disturbing amount of good music coming out of the UK right now and Azedia are no exception to the rule.  The production trio from London provide us with one of the better remixes of 2010.  Enjoy.

Remix Roundup Vol. 27 – 10.1.2010 / Joel and Scott present [Robyn, Memory Tapes, The Killers, and more!]

It’s Friday and you all know what that means….  We, Joel and Scott are back to fill your eardrums with some epic jams.  As you know our cold lockers are packed to the gills with devastatingly heavy dubstep sounds.  More than the same can easily be said about our non-dubstep chunes.  In fact, we are getting harassed for disturbing the peace and toxic contamination of our surrounding environment by our local environmental officials.  Oooops.

Shout out to all the support we been receiving from Copenhagen to New York and around the world.  We love hearing from you guys.

Nyd Det, Disfrute, Enjoy

♫ Coeur de Pirate – Comme Des Enfants (Le Matos Andy Carmichael Remix) / We always heard growing up that boys care more about beats and melodies, and girls pay more attention to lyrics and such.  The truth is that we don’t understand a damn word this girl is singing, but we couldn’t care less because this is nothing short of magic.  So, for now the theory stands.

♫ Robyn- Dancing On My Own (Buzz Junkies Club Mix) / Hailing from the UK buzz Junkies remind us here why we started listening to electronic music.  From the house beat to the flashes of old school techno, this song is right up our alley.  This friends is a proper dance tune.  (BTW its Friday so enjoy)

♫ Big Boi- Shutterbug (Jack Beats Remix) / We stumbled upon this the other day and flipped shit.  Jack Beats have tackled a giant of a tune.  Big Boi’s Shutterbug is one of the nastiest we’ve heard from the rap game in a long time.  So we thank you, Jack Beats, for bringing it to our dance floor.

♫ Memory Tapes- Bicycle (Little Loud Remix) / Ahhh yes.  Like a brisk jog on a fall morning this song just hits the spot and starts your day right.

♫ The Girls Can Hear Us- Drugs, Dancin’ (The Dirty Tees & SposhRock Remix) / Don’t be surprised to hear this remix in the clubs as The Dirty Tees & SposhRock do their damage and turn this track into electro club heat.  And lets be frank, everyone loves a song about the Rock-Star lifestyle of sex, drugs, and Rock N’ Roll (in this case, dancing).

♫ The Killers- Smile Like You Mean it [TGIK Broken Heart Mix] / I sat here and thought of a very deep and meaningful description for this song, and then realized that a simple “WOW” would suffice.  This song has always been special, but it has taken on a new life here.  Boys and girls this is perfection.

♫ Deluka- Cascade (Kids At The Bar Remix) / OK Cities gnarly’st producer/DJ combo, Kids At The Bar, are constantly on the grind and never fail to deliver. Here we have another rug cutting remix of Deluka’s Cascade.  Look for KATB’s debut EP to drop sometime in October on KillPop Records, a must have.

♫ Rosanna- Waterfall (Fear Of Tigers Remix) / Inside this remix Glitter Pixies are flying over head and showering everyone with gold dust. Oh, and we both thought of Kelly Kapowski when this one dropped. Fear of Tigers, you hurt so good!

♫ Sneaky Sound System- 16 (Flight Facilities Remix) / What is already a knockout song has been sent to the next level via first class. Flight Facilities, playing well with Miss Connie Mitchell’s amazing vocals and providing 16 with a voluptuous new baseline leaves us with nothing but a smile when looking at, we mean listening to, this wholesome beauty. Enjoy!

♫ Kanye West- Power (DJ Kue Remix) / Here is an example of DJ Kue doing what he does best, banging the mainstream straight out and setting a tune on fire! Kanye West, amidst a super emo comeback, has a lot of new music dropping sure to be mixed, and so far we like what we hear.

♫ Supplicant- Lifeline (Kaskade Mix) / Supplicant, a brand new group based out of Hollywood, California, reminds us of a modern day Depeche Mode. So here we have new talent meeting legendary producer/DJ Kaskade. We don’t usually dip into this area but Kaskade’s touch is too much to ignore.

BONUS: Two mashup jams

♫ Lady Gaga vs Madonna- Alejang up (DJs From Mars Remix) / If you didn’t think it was possible  Djs from Mars prove here that there is room for music icons Lady Gaga and Madonna on the same track.  Are we fans…  lets just say we are haters of the Lady Gaga haters.  Another score for Djs from Mars.

♫ Kaskade vs. Swedish House Mafia- Fire In Your New Shoes vs. One / Kaskade vs. Superstar Dj trio Swedish House Mafia (Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sabastian Ingrosso) all on one track for your listening pleasure?  Yes please.  This mashup will provide you electrifying eargasms all night long.

Next Friday look forward to your bi-weekly slap in the face with Vol. 2 of our new “Dubstep Roundup” series.

♫ M83- We Own The Sky (Udachi Dubstep Edit) / Whats going?  Whats going on?  This song is funking dazzling.  Snowboard videos always have legendary music and the video “That’s It That’s All” introduced us to “We Own the Sky” a few years back.  When we saw that it was being remixed we weren’t all keyed up about it………… But Udachi can be our wing man any day with masterpieces like this one.  Much praise.

♫ Ellie Goulding – Starry Eyed (Jakwob Remix) / When this song first comes on its dreamy.  I imagine Im dancing with a beautiful girl under the stars.  Then 1:00 hits and I open my eyes to see there is an entire dance floor full of madness right in front of my eyes.  So I leave her.

♫ The Streets – Blinded By The Lights (Nero Remix) / Everything about this song was already serious, (if you haven’t seen the video for the original song, look it up) and then Nero warped it into a disturbingly crunchy dubstep track.  So, get drunk and whatever else it is that you do… and turn it up.

♫ Paramore – CrushCrushCrush (Slof Man Dubstep remix) / First off, Paramore blows and we understand that nobody comes to this blog to see any of their shiet.  The reason we decided to include this song in our first Dubstep roundup was show what a skilled remix artist is capable of.  This noise is much more than just listenable.  Don’t take our word for it, download it and see.

♫ Aloe Blacc – I Need A Dollar (The Killabits Remix) / I need a dubber dubber, a dubber thats what I need, hey hey!  Killabits are guilty of taking Aloe Blacc’s amazing song and giving it a beautiful bass lift.  Enough said, press play and turn it up.

♫ Steed Lord – Bed Of Needles (AKS & Syndaesia Remix) / Better grab yourself a diaper and hold on to something tight because what AKS & Syndaesia did to this song is going to make you straight poop yourself.  And if you’ve never heard of the Icelandic group known as Steed Lord, consider this a warning.

♫ 12th Planet & Juakali – Reasons (Doctor P Remix) / CAUTION FLASHING LIGHTS: not for the faint of heart.  This remix is filthier than wearing used undies, easily receiving our Mr. Yuck sticker for the roundup.

♫ Blue Foundation – Eyes On Fire (Zeds Dead Remix) / Blue Foundation’s Eyes On Fire has been gracefully brought into the bass world by the hands of Canadian duo Zed’s Dead.  This one has been haunting our dreams for a while now, and we like it.  Bass induced night terrors anyone?  Yes please.

Remix Roundup Vol. 25 / 9.12.2010 / Joel & Scott present: Crystal Castles, Mike Posner, The Temper Trap, B.o.B, Rihanna, and more!

Let me introduce ourselves for we are the new faces….  Who are we you ask?  Well I’d like to think we laugh with the sinners and cry with the saints, but honestly we don’t hang out with too many of them saints.  I wish we were clever and able to come up with something sweet to say like this…

Born out of the mouths of wolves and serpents.
Raised up by degenerates and whores in the gutters of your forgotten cities.
Among the spawn of your outcast, your rebuked, your lepers.
Breaking bread with gangsters, hustlers, real motherfuckers
Scorned by your fearful leaders, and your simple masses.
Bearing no marking, no number, no names.
Only one sign, the Rad Omen.
For we are many, for we are many.

But, that would be ridiculous; as that is Rad Omens Bio on Myspace (damn).

The truth is that we are two dudes (Joel & Scott) from Seattle Washington that just love to get Nurdy’ and melt our faces on that dirty d-floor.   Remixes to Us are what platinum haired Bunnies are to Hugh Hefner.  We love Read more
