The Best Remixes of 2010… Since Then (July-Dec.)

Damn. Another great year for remixes. Whether bringing the dance heat, adding a different texture, or completely flipping a song over, we were hit with all kinds of solid sonic reworkings. No surprise to see some of TBE’s heavy hitters like RAC, Don Diablo, Bloodshy & Avant, and The Soundmen and a warm welcome to some new names that nailed their mixes to my repeat button. All of the top 6, as well as a few others, are remixes of tracks that never really caught me in their original form but now have become some of my favorite jams of the year. A whole new life was infused into them and isn’t that what a great remix is all about?

15. ♫ Sleigh Bells – AB Machines (French Horn Rebellion Remix)

14. ♫ Johnny Polygon ft Kid Cudi – Riot Song (The Soundmen Remix) / It’s official. Kid Cudi should only Read more

♫ Everything Everything – Suffragette Suffragette

It was Joel & Scott’s Remix Roundup that introduced me to Everything Everything via the Clock Opera remix of “MY KZ, UR BF.”Intrigued by what I heard, and all the blog buzz that I quickly discovered, I got my paws on their debut LP, Man Alive. I’ve been digesting it for a week or so now and it’s definitely an interesting album. I was initially disappointed in both the album and the original version on “MY KZ, UR BF” but after a few listens the whole endeavor is slowly growing on me. Its definitely a headphone album, you want all the weird sounds and vocal acrobatics to swirl through your ears unencumbered. So anyway, while I work on figuring out how much I like this album, I can tell you one thing, I love “Suffragette Suffragette.” Besides all the great angular hooks and dance-rock spazzing out, there is that unforgettable chorus (above) that is begging for an answer! My only complaint is that apparently this jam came out a single in 2008 and I never knew about it until know. Harumph. Anyway, I’m curious what you guys are thinking about this album. It seems like a polarizer so it’s kinda weird that I am on the fence.

Bury your face in MySpace

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
